In response to the UN Security Council’s recent resolution demanding an end to Jewish Settlements within the “alleged” Palestinian territories, Israel is cutting $6 million of it’s annual $40 million budget to the UN. Of course, the resolution was made because Obama and his administration refused to veto the measure and instead abstained from the vote.
That’s right. Obama is doing everything he can in his final days in office to not only screw over America, but our allies as well. If you’re Prime Minister Netanyahu, you’ve really got to be looking forward to regaining the support of the US again. The deterioration of our relationship with Israel is put all on Obama.
H/T I Have The Truth:
Israel stands as a democracy surrounded by volatile states of the Middle East, yet the UN treats Israel like the red headed step child of a mistress who is younger AND prettier. Needless to say, the UN just seems almost possessed by some Israel hating demon that wants to take them out.
I mean, maybe there is a better explanation but the actions of the UN say otherwise. Why? Why are they so obviously against Israel?
Well, that’s coming to an end.
Israel has announced plans to suspend an estimated $6 million in funding to the U.N.
The Times of Israel reported:
The cut to Israel’s $40 million annual contribution to the United Nations represented the portion of the UN budget allocated to four committees on Palestinian issues, the Israeli mission said.
Those committees include the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, the Division for Palestinian Rights, the Work of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories, and the Special Information Program on the Question of Palestine of the U.N. Department of Public Information.
“It is unreasonable for Israel to fund bodies that operate against us at the UN,” Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon said in a statement.
Of course, while it’s great to see Israel cutting some funds, I’m surprised they are still contributing ANY dollars to the UN. I hope President Trump joins Prime Minister Netanyahu and BOTH countries stop any and all funds to the UN. It’s time to change the US from being the UN’s biggest funder. I would also hope President Trump would reverse this UN resolution and makes it clear that these Israeli settlements don’t violate international law.
On Twitter Trump stated (in regards to UN and the resettlements):
The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!
We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but…….
not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Netanyahu said, he has “ironclad information” that Obama played an active and direct role in pushing for the UN resolution. I’m sure after January 20th, the real truth will come out after President Trump meets with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Until January 20th, let’s pray that Obama doesn’t commit too many more screw ups with our allies. President Trump already has enough Obama messes to clean up!
Oh….and one more thing, President Trump, while you’re at it….move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, …Jerusalem.
