Congress is preparing to seek retribution against the United Nations for the anti-Israel vote last week. According to the WFB report, “This could include cutting off U.S. funding for the U.N. and stripping the Palestinian mission’s diplomatic privileges.”
Obama ambushed Israel when they abstained from a veto vote on a U.N. resolution condemning Israel’s legal settlements in the West Bank.
Ted Cruz called on Congress to cut funding to the United Nations.
From Washington Free Beacon:
Congress is already setting the stage to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations in the wake of a contested vote last week in which the Obama administration permitted an anti-Israel resolution to win overwhelming approval, according to congressional leaders, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the current administration is already plotting to take further action against the Jewish state before vacating office.
Other punitive actions by Congress could include expelling Palestinian diplomats from U.S. soil and scaling back ties with foreign nations that voted in favor of the controversial measure, according to multiple sources who spoke to the Free Beacon about the situation both on and off the record.
The Obama administration is still under bipartisan attack for its decision to help craft and facilitate the passage of a U.N. resolution condemning the construction of Jewish homes in Jerusalem, a move that reversed years of U.S. policy on the matter.
The United Nations has become nothing but a headache and they are clearly not interested in treating America and our allies fairly.
Clearly not a group that we want to be associating with.
