On Friday, 14 members of UN Security Council voted in favor of a resolution demanding end to all Jewish settlements in the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem with the United States abstaining for the first time on an anti-Israel vote at UNSC since the establishment of the Zionist entity in 1948.
The resolution demanded that Zionist entity “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem” and said the establishment of settlements by Israel has “no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law.”
The landmark Palestinian victory occurred despite Benjamin Netanyahu putting rings around necks of US president-elect Donald Trump and Egyptian military dictator Gen. Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, a Crypto-Jew on phone demanding killing of the resolution.
After the vote, the White House defended the US abstention, saying that in the absence of any meaningful peace process, Obama took the decision to abstain. Criticizing Israel’s settlement policy, it said it had repeatedly warned Israel privately and publicly that settlement activity was increasing Israel’s isolation from the international community.
The resolution was put forward on Friday by four non-permanent UNSC members, Venezuela, Malaysia, New Zealand and Senegal after Egypt withdrew the draft resolution under pressure from Netanyahu and Donald Trump.
“This a day of victory for international law, a victory for civilized language, negotiation, and total rejection of Jewish extremists in Israel. The international community has told Israeli people that the way to security and peace is not going to be done through occupation – but rather through peace by ending the occupation and establishing a Palestinian state to live side by side with state of Israel and the 1967 borders,” said Saeb Erekat, chief negotiator appointed by Mahmoud Abbas, the un-elected president (his mandate ended in January 2009) of Palestinian Authority. Israel justice minister Tzipi Livni, former Mossad ‘honey pot’ has claimed that she had sex with Saeb Erekat and one of his colleagues to blackmail them.
On Wednesday, Egypt circulated a draft at the UN Security Council demanding an end to expansion of illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem on land stolen from the native Palestinians. The draft was scheduled to be voted on Thursday.
On Thursday, Netanyahu called Washington to veto the resolution to maintain its long history of vetoing anti-Israel resolution at the UNSC. A similar resolution was vetoed by United States in 2011. United States have used 41 vetoes so far to shield Israeli crimes.
On Thursday, Egypt delayed the vote on the resolution for further consultations as result of pressure from Netanyahu and Donald Trump.
Four UNSC non-permanent members gave Egypt ultimatum over the delay. Diplomats from Venezuela, Malaysia, Senegal and New Zealand told Egyptian envoy at UNSC on Thursday that if it didn’t clarify whether it planned to call a vote on a draft UN Security Council resolution demanding an end to expansion of illegal Jewish settlements – they would press ahead without Egypt’s involvement.
“In the event that Egypt decides it cannot proceed to call for a vote on December 23, or doesn’t provide a response by the deadline, those delegations reserve the right to table the draft, and proceed to put it to vote ASAP,” the four council members said in a note to Egypt, reported by the Reuters news agency.
Israel’s energy minister Yuval Steinitz has accused Barack Obama of throwing Israel under bus by abstaining.
As expected, the serial liar Benjamin Netanyahu reacted to the UNSC decision by saying: “Israel rejects this shameful anti-Israel resolution at the UN and will not abide by its terms.”
Benjamin J. Rhode, Obama’s Jew national security adviser, dismissed Donald Trump’s whining saying Barack Obama remains president until January 20, 2017.
“We could not in good conscience veto a resolution that expressed concerns about the very trends that are eroding the foundation for a two-state solution,” Rhodes told a conference call.
One of many election promises made by candidate Donald Trump to please the powerful Jewish Lobby was to recognize the disputed City of Jerusalem as capital of the Zionist entity and move US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Washington has warned the Zionist regime for decades that latter’s expansion of illegal Jewish settlement on Palestinian territory occupied in 1967 is the main obstacle to the realization of the so-called two-state solution.
