The US vetoes UN SC resolution seeking to block Trump’s Jerusalem decision

The resolution called on “all states to refrain from the establishment of diplomatic missions in the Holy City of Jerusalem” in an attempt by UN Security Council members to invalidate President Trump’s pledge to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It was carried by all the other 14 members. US ambassador Nikki Haley said: “We will not let the UN Security Council to again pass one-sided resolutions against Israel.” After the vote she said: “The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy.” Israel’s ambassador Danny Danon said: “Members of the Council can vote again and again – for a hundred more times. It won’t change the simple fact that Jerusalem is, has been, and always will be the capital of Israel.”

    Arabs calling themselves and with no possibly justified reason “palestinians” are the scum of the Earth!
    But of course everyone is entitled to my opinion!

      The only bombers of kindergardens, old-folks homes, and hospitals are Arabs (Iraq and Syria for example).
      They kill each other with abandon because their regards for life is zero.
      They love being martyrs, they love killing, beheading dropping poison gas bombs on civilians, all in the name of Allah.
      Stop drinking the pali BDS cool-aid, unless you are one of those horrible barbarians.

    This aversion to the holiness of several locations in Israel is rather new for the Europeans. Bethlehem is an Arab town, and Nazareth voted to remove its Christmas decorations [which was reversed], yet none of the people running Europe ‘by the Grace of God’ have made a peep.

    Anyone remember when most of Europe got into a series of holy wars in order to retake Jerusalem from the Arabs? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
