‘WAR’ COMING BETWEEN U.S., U.N….(Kick ‘Em Out Trump!)

‘It is a real moment to re-examine the relationship’


There’s a “war” coming between the United States and the United Nations, the international coalition that has as a mainstay of its activities to condemn Israel over and over, according to one columnist.

Josh Rogin, who writes on international issues for the Washington Post, on Wednesday started out with the headline “Inside the coming war between the United States and the United Nations.”

He explained that Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., already has started work on ways to keep U.S. money away from the U.N., because “the U.N. has made it impossible for us to continue with business as usual.”

The senator said Republicans in Congress likely “will feel like this is a betrayal of Israel and the only response that we have is the power of the purse.”

The dispute is over a resolution adopted by the U.N. Security Council last week, with the Obama administration’s abstention amounting to tacit approval, that condemns Israel yet again.

It calls on Israel to give up territory for the creation of a Palestinian state. Israeli leaders described it as devastating, since their one key negotiating point in discussions about a two-state solution is that territory.

Obama had the option to veto the resolution, since the U.S. is one of the permanent members of the group.
