Legal Insurrection: UN Security Council Passes Anti-Israel Resolution, U.S. Abstains
Nice - instead of vetoing a pernicious, counterfactual, and one-sided resolution against Israel, the Obama Administration abstained, allowing it to pass.
More than just declaring"settlement" illegal, the way it is drafted would make Israeli control of the Jewish Quarter of the old city of Jerusalem and any territory retaken after 1949 illegal as well. In short it's a one-sided anti-Israel resolution that normally would not have passed as the US, as an honest broker would have vetoed it.
Instead, Obama now that the election is over, decided to get back at Netanyahu and screw Israel.
January 20, 2017 and the end of this reign of error can't come soon enough.
