Despite President Barack Obama and the United Nations’ gross lack of concern or support for Israel, Congress has been taking strides to stand up for the Jewish state, and its efforts haven’t gone unnoticed.
Reported by Conservative Tribune:
In fact, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently thanked the U.S. House of Representatives for the motion they passed on Jan. 5 rebuking a recent U.N. resolution that condemned Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
The anti-Israel resolution passed the U.N.’s Security Council in Dec. 2016 by a shameful 14-0 vote, which was made worse by the revelation that the Obama administration abstained from voting rather than use its veto power to defend our nation’s faithful ally.
As a permanent member of the Security Council, the U.S. has a history of using its power to protect Israel — a tradition that was broken by the Obama administration.
Thankfully, Republicans and other freedom-loving representatives in the House voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to condemn the Security Council for passing the resolution, calling for it to be repealed or changed to be less one-sided against Israel.
In response, Netanyahu issued a video thanking the House for its swift, pro-Israel action.
