Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that he will reassess his country’s relations with the United Nationa after the Security Council adopted a resolution to stop the building of illegal settlements on Palestinian territory.

“I instructed the foreign ministry to complete within a month a re-evaluation of all our contacts with the United Nations, including the Israeli funding of UN institutions and the presence of UN representatives in Israel,” Netanyahu said on Saturday.

On Friday, the UNSC Resolution 2334 was passed with 14 votes in favor and one abstention — by the US. It condemned the establishment of settlements by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories a “flagrant violation under international law,” which it said was “dangerously imperiling the viability” of peace and the establishment of a Palestinian state.

“The decision that was taken was biased and shameful, but we will withstand it,” added Netanyahu. “I have already instructed to stop about 30m shekels ($7.8m) in funding to five UN institutions, five bodies, that are especially hostile to Israel … and there is more to come,” he added.

  1. this nasty, aggressive and illegal entity has relied on the un veto structure for decades. this happens and they say they are reassessing their relationship with the un? drama queens

    • Ah, at the MENA scale, they perfectly apply the Churchill quote!
      As a democracy, they’re the worst of the regimes in the MENA… After all the others…
      Now, I’d like having a more solid advice as I may be too neutral, so I’d like you to explain me in :
      – what they are nastier than PA or Hamas
      – In what conflict they werer aggressors and in which
      – In what a UN country may be an illegal entity?
      – drama queens : Again, in what more than PLO or Hamas?
      i.e. Hamas claimed to genocide during the Gaza war but nobody did when King Hussein cracked on PLO and killed 50% more ppl than IDF during Gaza war.

      – has relied on the un veto structure for decades. this happens and they say they are reassessing their relationship with the un?
      => Remember the UNESCO thing a few month ago. IMHO, they should begin to dismantle al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock, well numbering the parts they cut and send it all to Saudi Arabia, then propose the Palestinians that don’t want to become Israelis, as PA refuses any peace treaty and building a state as they just want to pump money from the UNRWA, to be relocated into Jordan, Egypy, North Lebanon, Syria and build them housings. They could even consider green architecture like earthships and also build them irrigation : read this : it was declared by a PLO official :
      “The ‘palestinian’ people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a “Palestinian” people since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa while as a “Palestinian”, I can undoubtely demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”
      – Zahir Muhsein, PLO Executive Committee, March 1977
      => This simply means all this is a fraud because Arabs hate Jews (never asked yourself why?) so OK, just return them to their countries of origin. Even a Hamas leader told about it on their TV, requiring for Egyptian help, saying “you know we’re all Egyptians, Syrians, Jordans, Saudis” etc.
      => I also found the 1844 Ottoman census : these were the populations of towns:
      Nablus: 120 Muslims, 70 Samaritans
      Nazareth: 700 people – all Christians
      Umm al-Fahm: 50 people-10 families, ALL Christian
      Gaza: 550 people- 300 Jews,250 Christian(Jews engaged in agriculture Christians deal with the trading and transporting the products)
      Tiberius: 300 residents, all Jews.
      Safed: about 200 inhabitants, all Jews
      Jerusalem: 5000 people, most of them (3,500) Jews, the rest- Christian (1000), Muslim (500)
      – This means that zionists didn’t stole land. British archives show that after the 1917 Balfour agreement, Arabs were smuggled into what was to become the Jew state in an attempt to outnumber the zionists. Churchil, in 1935, complained that 35,000 Syrians resettled there in a single month.
      => So, I’d really like someone to explain me, if there is any other reason than racism, what’s the heck : Ottoman Empire doesn’t exists, Palestinian leaders recognise it’s a scam, Ottoman census proves that there were only a few Arabs around and Brit records show hundreds of thousands were illegally smuggled.
      As they visibly don’t want to live with Israelis for the most of them, suppose Israelis propose them to buld them housings they couldn’t pay for in Arab countries to all that don’t want to live in Israel, this may be OK? Israelis could even move al-Aqsa and the Dome of Rock wherever they chose. Wouldn’t be better for everybody? It’d make much more sense as they won’t push them into the sea, it’s not difficult to understand and if even it happened, the 1947 Arab League project to exterminate all Jews could maybe succeed one day but having a 2nd strike capability, they’ll incinerate all the mid-east.
      So, as the plan failed for 68 years and will never be achieved so why still going on? Same thing about the shit in Syria which is a total failure. It simply makes no more sense except having several hundred of thousands victims of a fraud to uselessly suffer and create troubles in a country that even isn’t their and all these attempts are lasting since the Balfour agreement near a century ago while moreover, it wasn’t even an Arab land but a part of the Ottoman Empire.
      We have exactly the same kind of bias the white helmets do. This is ridiculous.
      So, let me understand where is the problem and what realistic solutions could work as it’s any way impossible to oust them from their land, even shelling has became useless : they intercept even mortar shells, now they’re the 1st to have tactical lasers fielded…
