In a call to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday, January 15, 2017, Secretary of State John Kerry assured the prime minister that there would be no further United Nations Security Council action taken against Israel in the wake the Paris peace conference.

That conference brought 70+ nations together to discuss...

In an Israeli TV interview conducted earlier this week at the White House, President Obama dismissed the criticism that he had betrayed Israel by opting not to veto United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2334.

The U.S. abstention allowed the Security Council to adopt the resolution on December 23. It branded Israel’s...

The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approves House Resolution 11 (full embed at bottom) which criticizes not only anti-Israel UN Security Council Resolution 2334, but also the U.S. abstention.

It was the criticism of the abstention that split Democrats, with several speakers claiming Republicans were politicizing support for Israel in Congress. Several speakers...

In all the fury over the anti-Israel UN Resolution 2334 the Obama administration marshalled through the Security Council, with an “abstain” vote providing cover for the perfidy, few people have focused on a particularly pernicious and dangerous provision.

I’m not talking about the provisions effectively declaring it illegal for Jews to live...

We’ve covered the back and forth today, from John Kerry’s angry policy speech putting most of the blame on Israel for failure to reach an agreement on the final status of the dispute, to Bibi Netanyahu’s equally blistering rebuttal.

The Israelis say that they have “ironclad” information that the Obama administration pushed the anti-Israel UN Security Council resolution passed on December 23, to which the U.S. abstained. Some public evidence supporting the accusation was summarized in my post last night.

The Obama administration denials are very Clintonian, phrased in ways to...

Perhaps the biggest bombshell was the repeated accusation that the U.S. was behind the resolution.

President Barack Obama’s legacy at the UN will be marked by the year 2016.

The year was bookmarked by the passage of UN Security Council resolution 2231 in January, giving U.N. authority to the Iran Nuclear Deal, and resolution 2334 last week, purporting to declare illegal the presence of Jews...

The UN Security Council has voted to pass the anti-Israel resolution. The U.S. went ahead and abstained to vote, not standing up for her only ally in the Middle East. This is the first time in 36 years the UN condemned settlements.

As Professor Jacobson described:
