After the Obama administration decided to kick its feet up and watch the United Nations pass anti-Israel settlements, Netanyahu began to take action.
His first step? Severing ties with countries that backed the U.N.’s settlement that the United States abstained from voting in.
Israel’s Foreign Ministry has reportedly suspended all working ties with 12 of the UN Security Council countries that voted to pass a resolution urging Israel to halt building settlements on occupied Palestinian land.
The move came at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request, one day after he summoned 10 of the nations’ ambassadors to Jerusalem to personally reprimand them for the vote.
Foreign ministers and ambassadors from Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, Ukraine, Angola, Egypt, Uruguay, Spain, Senegal and New Zealand will not be received at Israel’s Foreign Ministry amid the suspension, the Times of Israel reported . They will also not be granted an audience with Netanyahu.
After the anti-Israel settlement was passed, Donald Trump said, “As to the UN, things will be different after Jan. 20th.”
