United Nations To Vote On Resolution To ‘Rescind’ US Recognition Of Jerusalem

The United Nations Security Council is set to vote Monday on a resolution calling for the withdrawal of President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The one-page draft resolution does not mention Trump or the U.S. by name, but expresses “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem,” according to Reuters.

The council also “affirms that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered, the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council.”

    Should the U.S, defund the U.N. as a result of this vote it would go bankrupt within 6 months.

      We can hope!

      Easy answer, Yes. And to quote the goalie from Slapshot, “Right fucking now”.

      I really hope they pull out of the United Nations asap. It seems to be run by a bunch of 3rd world countries.

    Why do I think the Donald already has a letter drawn up that states ‘Kiss My Ass’ and no more US cash for you..

    • deplorabledave

      That would be fantastic.

      Next stop, Trump throws the UN into the East River brick by brick.

  • deplorabledave

    Maybe this is the impetus needed to boot these leeches off the continent.

    • J. C.

      Could be why Trump officially recognized J-town in the first place…

  • Jay Harper

    Excellent news. We could be seeing the beginning of the end of the UN.

    Nikki Haley is sure to veto it.

    Wouldn’t the World be a much more peaceful and harmonious place if the United Nations ran the world much as the EU does Europe?

    Can someone start a petition asking our Canadian government to move embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem? something like ‘Where as Israel was promised statehood in …… etc. and whereas Jerusalem was the planned capital in …… and whereas israelis have endured economic and international disadvantage since ….. as airlines will not allow their entrance into over 17 countries …. and the world has been complicent in this international discrimination by tolerating discrimination in airtravel etc. therefore it is up to Canada to lead the way in human rights and follow suit correcting the wrong.etc. and call on all nations to move their embassies to Jerusalem and recognize the state of Israel, and threat of violent from islamic nations is not grounds for failing to right a wrong.

    The only reason the U.N exists is because of the funding of the U.S.A. Biting the hand that feeds you is always a bad idea.
    Perhaps that’s also part of the Donald’s strategy. The U.N is a cesspit of bribes, diplomats, third world grifters and petty despots. Cut them loose.

    I wonder how they feel about decisions made to alter the demographic composition of Europe and North America?

  • ECM

    Pure politics: the US has a veto, so this is going nowhere and is just kabuki for some of the more absurd states on the inaptly-named “Security Council”.

    (Not that it would matter if it did pass–the UN can’t make law.)

  • HalcyonDaze

    Given the effectiveness of the UN this idiotic demand actually reminds me more of that Movie “The Mouse that Roared” than any sane request.

  • Clausewitz

    So when exactly did the UN think they had any authority to over ride a Sovereign nations policies? Tell them to go pound sand and then kick them out of New York. Time to revoke their diplomatic immunity just like in Lethal Weapon II.

  • Who runs the US: the Americans or the UN?

    Withdraw today.
