Trump et al cross at opposition to Jerusalem capital


The UN has had a non-binding vote on opposition to declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

Jerusalem: UN resolution rejects Trump's declaration.

Haley's warning: "The United States will remember this day"

The UN General Assembly has decisively backed a resolution effectively calling on the US to withdraw its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The text says that any decisions regarding the status of the city are "null and void" and must be cancelled.

The non-binding resolution was approved by 128 states, with 35 abstaining and nine others voting against.

It came after US President Donald Trump threatened to cut financial aid to those who backed the resolution.
How did UN members vote?

    The nine who voted against the resolution were the US, Israel, Guatemala, Honduras, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Togo
    Among the 35 abstaining were Canada and Mexico
    Those voting in favour included the other four permanent members of the UN Security Council (China, France, Russia and the UK) as well as key US allies in the Muslim world
    There were 21 countries who did not turn up for the vote.
]The vote by country.

What did they expect???

Yobbo, in another few months, when our move is complete; and my Italian citizenship takes precedence, will you sponsor my membership in the “Anti-American Society”? I used to foster the hope that the situation would improve. I no longer have that hope. Any country that would elect a Donald Trump is simply beyond salvation. While the government of Italy remains the mess it has always been, at least no one has the nuclear codes. And in addition, at least we Italians can screw up government with style and panache. And at least have the common sense to vote with the majority on this U.N. Resolution.

Would it surprise you to know that I consider myself as a selective anti-American?

Much of American society is perfectly fine.

What is not is the clinging to the 18th century thoughts of a bunch of slave owners. I might add that they have tried to minimise the slavery aspects but that is part of the whole and the whole desperately needs updating.
