The British parliament's vote to recognize a Palestinian state reflects shifting public sentiment against Israel in Britain and around the world, Britain's ambassador to Israel said Tuesday.According to Ambassador Matthew Gould, the House of Commons' vote Monday will not change British government policy but is "significant" because it reveals attitudes toward Israel after the summer war in Gaza. Israel's Foreign Ministry said the vote in Britain undermines chances for peace because Palestinian statehood should come about only as a result of negotiations with Israel.In 2012, the U.N. General Assembly voted to recognize a state of Palestine on territories captured by Israel in 1967 .Israel has denounced the Palestinian government because it is has backing by the militant group Hamas, but Western governments have signaled a willingness to work with it.
