United Nations: Who stood with us; who spit in our faces; who (conveniently) ‘abstained’

0323unhumanrightsIn an “emergency meeting” the General Assembly of the United Nations voted overwhelmingly to condemn the American decision to relocate the US embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem.

  • Never mind that it’s none of the UN’s business where the United States places any of its embassies
  • Never mind that the United States gives far more to the UN’s coffers than any other member nation
  • Never mind that not a single one of our NATO alleged “allies” voted with us
  • Never mind that Israel captured East Jerusalem after they were attacked by a Arab-Muslim nation

With the obvious exception of the United States voting against its own condemnation, the remaining eight nations voting against the resolution have a combined square mile area roughly the size of North and South Carolina combined.

But then again, most UN member states would face an uphill battle to qualify for an American area code.

  • One hundred and twenty eight countries voted in favor condemning the United States
  • Nine countries voted against
  • Thirty five abstained
  • Twenty one nations didn’t even bother to show up for the vote

Yet in a strange sort of way, the abstaining and absent nations very well may have been paying attention to Amb. Haley’s promise that the United States would remember who voted to condemn their sugar daddy.

Within minutes of Trump’s Jerusalem announcement, other nations announce embassy moves

o-WORLD

Despite the hard-left leaning Establishment Media in America attempting to make political hay by diminishing President Trump’s fulfillment of his campaign promise, and over two-decades-old American promise, to relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to the legitimate Israeli capital of Jerusalem.

So far, CNN, the Washington Post via Chicago TribuneUSA Today, taxpayer-subsidized WHYY of Philadelphia, just to name a few, have all made a point of citing that no other nations have an embassy in the Holy City.



But what the same Establishment Media is failing to cite is that within minutes of Trump’s news conference, it was reported that two other nations have notified Israel’s Foreign Ministry with notification they intend to follow the American lead of shifting their embassy’s location from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

As reported by Israel’s Haaretz news service;

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte expressed interest in moving his country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Channel 1 news reported on Wednesday, a day after U.S. President Donald Trump announced his intention to relocate the U.S. embassy.

According to the report, the Czech Republic expressed interest in moving their embassy to Jerusalem as well.

Is it just me, or is this another example of what happens when America re-asserts its leadership?
