Daily Caller Reports:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked members of the House of Representatives Friday afternoon for their support of his country in the wake of the United Nations Security Council resolution vote last December that condemned Israel for its construction of settlements and denounced the White House’s abstention vote on the matter.
“After the outrageous anti-Israel resolution at the UN, the US House of Representatives voted yesterday resoundingly to support Israel and reject this one-sided resolution,” Netanyahu said.
He went on to say, “Democrats and Republicans alike know that the Western Wall isn’t occupied territory. They voted to either repeal the resolution at the UN or change it — and that’s exactly what we intend to do… I want to thank the US House of Representatives which reflects the tremendous support Israel enjoys among the American people. Thank you, America. Thank you, Congress.”
On Thursday the House passed an overwhelmingly bipartisan resolution (342-80) reprimanding UN Resolution 2334 and called on the White House to veto future UN Security Council provisions that are perceived as anti-Israel. A majority of Democrats, 109, voted for the resolution and 76 Democrats voted against it. Four Democrats voted present. Every Republican except four members voted for the resolution.
