  • Netanyahu: UN Resolution Is a Call to Arms for Israel’s Many Friends
    Prime Minister Netanyahu said Saturday evening: “The resolution that was adopted yesterday at the United Nations is distorted and shameful but we will overcome it. The resolution determines that the Jewish Quarter [in the Old City of Jerusalem] is “occupied territory.” This is delusional. The resolution determines that the Western Wall is “occupied territory.” This too is delusional….There is also an attempt here, which will not succeed, to impose permanent settlement terms on Israel.”
    “All American presidents since Carter upheld the American commitment not to try to dictate permanent settlement terms to Israel at the Security Council. And yesterday, in complete contradiction of this commitment, including an explicit commitment by President Obama himself in 2011, the Obama administration carried out a shameful anti-Israel ploy at the UN.”
    “Last night’s resolution is a call to arms for all of our many friends in the U.S. and elsewhere around the world, friends who are sick of the UN’s hostility toward Israel, and they intend to bring about a fundamental change in the UN. Therefore, this evening I tell you in the language of our sources, the sweet will yet come forth from the bitter, and those who come to curse will yet bless.”  (Prime Minister’s Office)
