The office of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected Friday’s vote at the United Nations Security Council in favor of an anti-Israel resolution, calling it “shameful” and blasting President Barack Obama for ganging up against the Middle East’s one true democracy.
Netanyahu’s bureau sent Breitbart Jerusalem the following statement on the U.S. decision to abstain from the vote, thus ensuring the approval of the resolution:
Israel rejects this shameful anti-Israel resolution at the UN and will not abide by its terms. At a time when the Security Council does nothing to stop the slaughter of half a million people in Syria, it disgracefully gangs up on the one true democracy in the Middle East, Israel, and calls the Western Wall “occupied territory.”
The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against this gang-up at the UN, it colluded with it behind the scenes.
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.
