EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL Palestinians are jubilant over the United Nations vote that's brought de facto recognition of a Palestinian state. SOUNDBITE: RAWAN ABU YOUSEF, RESIDENT OF RAMALLAH, SAYING (English): "I'm so proud, like a Palestinian, I'm so proud, this president represents me, he reflected our dreams in such a tremendous way." Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad says the U.N. vote is an important step in the right direction. SOUNDBITE: PALESTINIAN PRIME MINISTER SALAM FAYYAD SAYING (English): "It's really up to us, to really move things to the next step, next step and to really move on to ensure that we really get the real thing. What our people are looking for is a genuine state where they can live as free people." Israel, which opposed the Palestinian bid to become a non-member state at the U.N., insists the vote is meaningless. SOUNDBITE: MARK REGEV, SPOKESMAN FOR ISRAEL'S PRIME MINISTER, SAYING (English): "I know that they're celebrating tonight in Ramallah but the truth is, when the party is over and when people wake up tomorrow morning, they'll see that nothing is changed, that reality on the ground remains as is." There was mixed reaction within the U.N. too over the outcome of the Palestinian vote. SOUNDBITE: BAN KI-MOON, UN SECRETARY GENERAL SAYING (English): "Today's vote underscores the urgency of a resumption of meaningful negotiations." SOUNDBITE: SUSAN RICE, U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE UN, SAYING (English): "Progress towards a just and lasting two-state solution cannot be made by pressing a green voting button here in this hall." The U.N. vote offers little prospect for greater Palestinian clout in world politics. But it could be enough for Palestinian membership of the International Criminal Court where states can refer alleged war crimes or crimes against humanity for investigation. That's a route some at the U.N. are urging the Palestinians not to take.
