‘Israel rejects the anti-settlement resolution at the United Nations’
Israel rejects the anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Office said in a statement Friday night, calling the UN vote “shameful” and stating that Israel would not abide by it.
The Security Council is not doing anything to stop the slaughter of half a million people in Syria, instead they turn their focus on Israel, stated the Prime Minister’s Office.
“The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against the UN’s obsession with Israel, it collaborated with the UN behind Israel’s back,” the statement continued.
“Israel looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and with all our friends in Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike, to negate the harmful effects of this absurd resolution.”
The United Nations Security Council voted on Friday to adopt a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity as illegal, and demanding that Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the ‘occupied’ Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem”.
