On December 24, 2016, the UN Security Council passed resolution 2334 demanding Israel give up any territory won in defensive wars since 1967.  The failure by the Obama administration to veto this resolution is a shameful abrogation of the United States’ duty to support its most important ally, Israel.

“Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and neighborhoods in Jerusalem are being used – as they always have been used – as a means of delegitimizing the Jewish state as a whole, and legitimizing Palestinian terrorists and Islamic terrorists more generally. Resolution 2334 serves to criminalize Israel and its people and to undermine Israel’s right to exist, while embracing Palestinian terrorists and empowering them in their war to annihilate Israel.”

“The resolution—whose passage was made possible by the U.S. abstention ordered by President Obama from Hawaii—is not just shameful, unfair, unbalanced, or destructive. It’s barbaric.”

“The United States, through its decision not to veto the resolution, enabled acceptance of a Security Council resolution referring to “occupied Palestinian territory including East Jerusalem.” This indicates U.S. acceptance of the fact that the territories and east Jerusalem belong to the Palestinians. This despite the claim that the United States has consistently agreed with Israel that there has never been any legal determination, agreement, treaty, or other binding source determining that.”

“As I’ve said consistently here the whole goal is the theft of Jewish indigenous identity in Israel (all of biblical Israel) and the replacement of Jews with invading Muslim Arabs whose ideology conquered and occupied Israel since 640CE. This is a central part of Islamic Jihadi doctrine and always has been.”
