The UN General Assembly votes 140-6 in favor of a resolution supporting Palestinian claims to territory seized by Israel during the Six Day War of 1967. The resolution describes Israel as an"occupying power" which has no sovereignty over any part of the West Bank or Gaza Strip.

Israel vehemently objects to this resolution, but President George W. Bush also calls upon Israel to withdraw to its pre-war boundaries of 1967 and give the occupied territories to the Palestinians for a homeland.
