The UN General Assembly is meeting this morning on a resolution that, without mentioning the U.S. by name, condemns Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and plan to relocate the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem at some future point. The resolution also demands a return to the so-called 1967 lines (which actually are the 1949 Armistice lines), which would put the main Jewish holy sites and the Jewish Quarter in the hands of Palestinians.

General Assembly Resolutions are not binding under UN Rules and do not create international law.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, backed up by Donald Trump, has promised that the U.S. and Trump take this vote personally, and will be “taking names,” as detailed in our prior post, Nikki Haley: “US will be taking names” during General Assembly vote on Jerusalem Embassy move.

Official Palestinian media is portraying Haley as a Vulture (via PalMedia Watch):

Trump also suggested a cut-off of aid to countries that vote against the U.S.:

The General Assembly almost certainly will vote overwhelmingly in favor of the resolution in a direct slap at Trump. The question is, how will he react. I suggest that Trump immediately redesignate the Jerusalem Consulate as our Embassy, rather than waiting years for planning and construction of a new Embassy.

We also should close the PLO office in Washington, D.C., suspend visas for Palestinian Authority and PLO officials, and pass and sign into law the Taylor Force Act, which would suspend aid to the P.A. unless it stopped paying terrorists to kill and maim Israelis.
