Netanyahu thanks US Congress for opposing UN anti-settlement resolution

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu thanked members of the US House of Representatives in a video Friday for their "tremendous support of Israel after the outrageous anti-Israel resolution at the UN. Democrats and Republicans alike know that the Western Wall isn't occupied territory,” he said.

Thursday, the House voted 342-80 to rebuke the UN for Resolution 2334, calling on the White House to veto future UN Security Council measures “which seek to impose solutions to final status issues, or are one-sided and anti-Israel.” The prime minister said: “They voted to either repeal the resolution at the UN or change it—and that's exactly what we intend to do. Thank you, America. Thank you, Congress.”
