Israeli leaders still praised the outcome as a show of wide support for their position against the terror group, which for years has targeted Israel with rockets, bombs and other attacks.
"The failure of the American venture at the United Nations represents a slap to the U.S. administration and confirmation of the legitimacy of the resistance", Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zahri tweeted, referring to militant groups that oppose Israel.
It was a real life lesson for Haley in how 'Chanakya neeti' goes down at the United Nations, where countries calculate the value of their votes at multiple levels to get the biggest bang for their bucks.
Read the full story. The draft received 87 votes in favor, 57 against, 33 abstentions and 16 countries did not vote.
If adopted, it would mark the first time the assembly has taken aim at Hamas, the Islamist militant group that has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007.
There is no difference between Hamas, and Al-Qaida and Boko Haram, he said, adding that as the Jewish people are celebrating Hanukkah, the plurality of Member States of the United Nations has chosen to condemn Hamas.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Twitter that he "commended" all 87 countries that took a stand against Hamas. It condemned "Hamas for repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence", and called for the group to stop using "airborne incendiary devices". This was echoed by his counterpart with the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Tala Abu Zarifa, who suggested that the failure to get the resolution adopted, "is a victory for worldwide justice and the legitimacy of the Palestinian resistance". "Over 700 resolutions condemning Israel, and not one single resolution condemning Hamas".

Bethesda apologises after leak of Fallout 76 players' personal information
I'm assuming this is a bug in the website, because I don't see for what reason Bethesda would make tickets public. After submitting the tickets, however, the information was passed on to other users thanks to a technical error.
Piranha Plant Super Smash Bros Ultimate pre order bonus
No one saw it coming, mostly because Persona 5 isn't even available on a Nintendo platform, but that could be changing. Smash Ultimate players who opted to buy the digital version of the game won't have to register the game at all.
It outlined the basis for comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace and referred to a December 2016 Security Council resolution that condemned Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem as a "flagrant violation" of global law.
That was because the Palestinians and their supporters wanted a vote instead on a short rival resolution sponsored by Ireland that included the exact language of the amendment.
That draft resolution, proposed by Ireland, called "for the achievement, without delay, of a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East" based on United Nations resolutions.
The rival resolutions reflect the deep divisions among the 193 United Nations member states over the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict - and the failure to end it.
The PLO's Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine also expressed joy over the failure of the U.S. resolution condemning Hamas.
"Before the General Assembly can credibly advocate compromise and reconciliation between the Palestinians and Israel, it must on record, unambiguously and unconditionally, condemn Hamas terrorism", Haley told the body before the vote. Among the countries that supported the proposal were all the member states of the European Union, countries in Africa and Asia, and many others.
In a statement early Friday, Hamas thanked the states that voted against the resolution and rebuked those who voted in favor.
Then the General Assembly went on to approve another measure demanding "an end to the Israeli occupation" and a Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders.
