On 12/23/2016, President Obama chose to abstain from voting on a UN Security Council issue directed at destroying Israel.
The Security Council has 5 permanent members: China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Each of these 5 Permanent members has solitary VETO power.
The vote was 14 to 0 with America abstaining. The USA, under the Obama administration, should have vetoed the UN Resolution. This UN vote shows an absence of respect and/or support of the USA and Israel.
Israel is America’s best Middle Eastern friend.
General Assembly members elect two-year terms for ten non-permanent members and elected for two-year terms by the end of term dates: Angola (2016), Egypt (2017), Japan (2017), Malaysia (2016), New Zealand (2016), Senegal (2017), Spain (2016), Ukraine (2017), Uruguay (2017), Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of) (2016).
Obama’s refusal to ‘VETO’ this Resolution validates his confirmation of Islam over Christianity.
An incoming President Trump-elect must seize this confrontation and amend this UN action; either, reversal of the UN decision, cancel a membership within the UN, and/or expel and remove the UN from the properties within the USA as President Reagan once faced.
