Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Tuesday that the United Nations, which last month passed a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity, may attempt to pass another anti-Israeli resolution before U.S. President Barack Obama leaves office.
“(There) are signs that they will try to turn decisions made there into another decision in the Security Council,” he cautioned during a year-end meeting of the nation’s ambassadors and chiefs of missions in Europe, as reported by Reuters.
“Therefore our primary effort for now is to prevent another U.N. decision, another decision by the Security Council,” he continued, adding that his government was “investing a great diplomatic effort in this.”
The prime minister’s statements added weight to a report issued by Breitbart last week claiming that Palestinian officials have “been in contact with the Obama administration and European countries about the possibility of taking more U.N. action on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before President Obama leaves office next month.”
Specifically, an unnamed official of the Palestinian Authority alleged that the U.N. intended to follow up on its first resolution by drafting means by which it could be enforced.
“The new motion will (also) seek to set up a clear timeline for negotiations resulting in the establishment of a Palestinian state,” the official reportedly added.
It was expected that this new resolution would be announced at the Middle East peace conference slated to convene on Jan. 15 at the behest of French President François Hollande.
Since being announced last year, the conference has stirred opposition among Jewish leaders, who have demanded that Hollande postpone the “ill-conceived, poorly timed and damaging” event that they argued would amount to “another sham forum in which the usual one-sided outcomes against Israel are the likeliest result,” The Jerusalem Post reported.
Moreover, it made “no sense” for the U.N. to host the conference during the last days of the Obama administration, they argued, the premise being that the meeting should at least be delayed until President-elect Donald Trump takes office.
The statesmanlike thing for Obama to do would be to agree. But since he has no scruples about stabbing America’s closest ally in the back, we would never expect him to do that.
