O JERUSALEM – The United Nations’ obsession with Israel continues:
The United Nations (U.N.) Security Council is weighing a draft resolution that would essentially seek to nullify any move to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The resolution, drafted by Egypt and circulated among the Security Council’s 15 members, does not directly mention the United States or President Trump, who moved last week to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, according to Reuters, which viewed a copy of the text.
To be sure, any effort by the Security Council to call for the U.S. decision to be withdrawn would be largely symbolic. As one of the body’s five permanent members, the U.S. wields veto power over any resolution, and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley is almost certain to shoot the measure down.
Still, the resolution has wide support on the council, according to Reuters, and the body could vote as soon as Monday or Tuesday on the matter. It would need at least nine votes to pass. A veto from the U.S., the United Kingdom, France, Russia or China would effectively kill the resolution.
The continuing existence of Israel enables all the lowest and most repulsive regimes around the world to enjoy the feeling of superiority, while being, for a change, “on the side of the angels” in the majority of the “international community”. In this, the anti-Zionism (often disguising anti-Semitism) is not unlike the white supremacism, which enables the least educated and most marginal whites to feel superior to someone else.
