UN Jerusalem Vote Postmortems

hough symbolic only, rejection of Trump’s Jerusalem declaration by an overwhelming majority of UN member states gave his administration and Israel a black eye – two rogue states, partnering in high crimes, spurning fundamental Palestinian rights.

US strategy to get its way includes heavy-handed pressure, bullying, threats, other forms of intimidation and bribery – more sinister tactics used when these fail.

Notably 8 of the 10 largest recipients of US aid rejected Trump’s Jerusalem declaration in Thursday’s UN vote – Afghanistan, Egypt, Ethiopia, Jordan, Nigeria, Pakistan, South Africa and Tanzania.

Neocon US UN envoy Nikki Haley threatened UN member states, warning Washington won’t stand for being “disrespected.”
