I'm glad my country voted for Palestine. With no state having a veto power, we can finally see how the rest of the world views the conflict.
Disappointed about Canada's no vote, had expected more from Canada as I think it's a great country with awesome people. Still think this
government's (Canada) vote does not reflect the sentiments of the Canadians and is decided by the government of Canada. I feel this because I have
been going through many different social media platforms and forums and several Canadians have shared their sentiments and also lot of non-Canadians
sharing their disappointment over Canada's vote.
The vote from United States and Israel was expected so nothing new there. Nobody expected USA to vote different we all know AIPAC got them by the
balls for decades now.
Found tidbit of information about countries that voted no, not sure how accurate the info is:
Micronesia: Financial assistance from the U.S. is the primary source of revenue, with the U.S. pledged to spend $1.3 billion in the islands in
Palau: The government is the major employer of the work force, relying heavily on financial assistance from the US.
Marshall Islands: United States government assistance is the mainstay of the economy.
Under the terms of the Amended Compact of Free Association, the U.S. will provide US$57.7 million per year to the Marshall Islands (RMI) through 2013,
and then US$62.7 million through 2023, ...
Nauru is heavily dependent on Australia as its major source of financial support. In 2001 Nauru signed an agreement with Australia to accommodate
asylum seekers (mostly from Iraq and Afghanistan) on the island, in return for millions of dollars in aid.
To put things in perspective, here are the population figures for four of the "countries" that voted against.
Nauru - 9,378
Palau - 20,956
Micronesia - 111,000
Marshall Islands - 68,000
Here's a map showing which countries have voted. The map shows immense support for Palestine allover the world, I think I'll let the map speak (or
in this case display) for itself

In the end just want to say Congrat's Palestine!
