Palestine's bid

Following our posts available here, pasted above is the 1st of 3 parts of the speech in which Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas explained Palestine's deposit yesterday of a request for U.N. recognition of statehood -- a speech received, according to The New York Times, by "thunderous applause."
The other 2 parts are here and here, and here is a shorter version that also includes remarks by Israel President Benjamin Netanyahu.
Next on tap, per The Times: "several weeks of jockeying and horse-trading."
