Rep. Zeldin Reissues Call for U.S. to Veto Anti-Israel Resolution at United Nations

December 23, 2016
Press Release
One Consequence of Resolution Passing Should Be for Congress and President-elect Trump to Cut All Foreign Aid to Palestinian Authority

Patchogue, NY - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Co-Chairman of the House Republican Israel Caucus, reissued his call for the United States to veto the recently released anti-Israel resolution, which has been reportedly scheduled for a vote as early as 3PM today:

Congressman Zeldin said, "This is an anti-semitic, anti-Jewish, anti-Israel resolution. If this resolution passes, Congress and President-elect Trump should cut all foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority, which also financially rewards families for violent terrorist crimes against innocent Israelis. President Obama, in his final days in office, would be ramming through a massive and destructive shift in United States foreign policy in collusion with a Hamas-Abbas pro-Palestinian push for ethnic cleansing of the Jewish people in Eastern Jerusalem and Judea/Samaria. President Obama would be further cementing his legacy as one of the worst Presidents in the history of the United States, while damaging America’s historically sacred and necessary alliance with Israel in the process.

As I stated yesterday, Pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel nations are continuing their fanatical efforts at the United Nations to delegitimize America’s greatest ally, Israel. We must stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel, a beacon of freedom and liberty in a very dark place of the world. The latest resolution should be vetoed by the United States today to send the strongest possible message to Pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel nations that their disparaging, divisive and dangerous tactics will be met with zero tolerance. Continued unilateral concessions by Israel in exchange for no promises or follow through towards peace on the part of others would be as ill advised as it is unfeasible."
