On December 20, Trump threatened that the US will cut off financial aid to countries that would vote in favor of a draft United Nations resolution. A threat that was criticized all over the world.

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley criticized the resolution and the UN before withdrawing from the session. Haley accused the UN of “attacking” the rights of the US as a sovereign nation.

“The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation … We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations, and so many countries come calling on us, as they so often do, to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit,” Haley said according to Reuters.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the UN resolution too and described it as “preposterous” in a short video message. The Israeli PM also thanked Trump and said that he was satisfied at the number of countries that didn’t vote for the measure.

“Jerusalem is our capital, always was and always will be. But I do appreciate the fact that a growing number of countries refuse to participate in this theater of the absurd … So I appreciate that and especially I want to again express our thanks to President Trump and Ambassador Haley for their stalwart defense of Israel and their stalwart defense of the truth.” Netanyahu said according to the Israel Haaretz newspaper.

From its side, Palestine’s Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said during the UN session that Jerusalem is the key for war or peace in the Middle East and the whole world. Al-Maliki also stressed that the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital didn’t affect the real position of the city, but the US position as the meditator for the peace process.

“We will not be discouraged by a veto, threat or religious promise that will be used to justify colonialism and the seizure of the land [Jerusalem city],” al-Maliki said according to the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV.

Experts believe that the UN resolution will not effect the US decision regarding Jerusalem. However, it will for sure effect any future solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    what happened to Ukraine vote?

    • Miguel Redondo

      The Ukranian Ambassador to the UN probably was looking for a date with Ivanka Trump and missed the poll.

      • John Whitehot

        so the lack of an icon near the country name means that the ambassadors were not present i guess.

        • FlorianGeyer

          It seems so, yes and that being the case , the Americas latest bum boys and girls in Moldova will net be getting any aid.

          I would also think that the UK’s ‘yes’ vote will preclude a meaningful Trade deal with the US . That’s probably a good thing as the US carpet baggers are too sharp for the Brits in power.

          • John Mason

            Not wrong. NATO won’t be happy about the voting also.

          • John Whitehot

            I’m no expert on UK things, but I recall reading that support for Palestine is rather strong among the population (I mean the small part that still have a clue about the world) – much more than in the US in any case.

            I also recall an article about Corbyn where he stated that LP is mostly pro-palestinian these days, and that Israelis were particularly disgruntled at it.

          • You can call me Al

            Not just the labour party, most of the UK on all political sides. It has nothing to do with Israel being allegedly Jewish, it has to do with the insane and unstopped genocide of people; Muslim or whoever by the Israel administration.

          • John Whitehot

            after seeing the eagerness of bombing Syria and condemning “Russian aggression” I have severe doubts on that.

            If there’s a country that has fought Israelis war with the same commitment of the US that’s the UK. Can’t forget the yesman Tony Blair, which in 2003 gave “legitimation” to the US led invasion of Irak to the eyes of english speaking countries.

            If the UK hadn’t intervened, it would had been a case of a single country invading another, sovereign one – that would had made, at least formally, the US actions rather more despicable than they appeared.

          • You can call me Al

            Parliament voted against intervention in Syria + then in violation of that vote, the scum send elite troops to train vermin. 3 x planes were in Syria against the vote and hey did F.A.

            The Brits are ashamed of that as they are with Iraq, when a million man march went through London to march against the illegal war ONLY TO GET THE SH1T kicked out of them.

            You may be surprised but not everything you read in the press is true – the UK and the rest of Europe has been moving away from the Yankers for over a decade, but every time we do, the bastards attack us economically ………..do you think the downing of the whole European gas supply AT ONCE was a coincidence ?.

            Merry Christmas.

          • John Whitehot

            nicely put bro.

            merry christmas to you.

      They were absent hence no vote. Cowards.

      Too ashamed to tell the world it is a vassal of Israel and the United States.

    • Tudor Miron

      Ukro nazi are having a perception shock – “did we miscalculate which ass we should be kissing?” “Should we just wait and see who’s the new Boss?”. “Let’s hide and pretend we don’t exist for a moment!”

    • BMWA1

      Drunk?

    UN votes 128-9 to reject Trump’s decision on Jerusalem

    This a slap in the face of America.
    Trump today has isolated US in the world.

    So called superpower exposed. Trump will make America slave again.

    Where are your democratic principles Mr. Trump?

    First time ever in the history of UNO that whole world against a big power and he is alone. Bravo blow to the dictator of the world Trump.

    Now trump should call back his ambassadors from these 128 countries, if he is a man of his words.

    • Rob

      Like a bully man Natenyahu openly attacks every middle east country against international law which is an open political crime.
      Natenyahu also attacks residential blocks, hospitals, schools, Mosques in Palestine. He harass, torture and kill children and women of Palestine.

      If tomorrow another country bombed Israel so then Trump will be pissed off or not.

      • Israel bombs the children of Gaza in their homes.
        That makes them the greatest stinkers of the world. What they are doing to Palestinians is WORSE than what Germans did to them in the 1930’s and 40’s during their vaunted “The Holocaust.”

        Because they’ve been killing repressing and oppressing Palestinians FOR 70+ YEARS NOW.

    • Rob

      Trump should realize that supporting terrorists like Israel is not in favour of America.

    • BMWA1

      Pish posh, Marshall Islands was all for it!!!

    • Pareggiamoiconti

      you should note that in the 9 are counted togo, nauru, micronesia, palau and marshall islands

      Not quite political giants…

      I cannot remember such an epic diplomatic fail in the hisfory of UN

      • Rob

        These are poorest countries and they survive on US money. The Muslim Billionaire countries can easily finance them. In this way these donner countries will become stronger politically and economically in the whole world.

      “Trump will make America slave again”

      Was there a time when it wasn’t, since 1948?

    • hhabana

      Pretty shocking he thinks he can bully the world to conform to American government opinion. If there is a severe recession come 2020, he will be voted out. The problem is replaced by whom?

      • Rob

        In US constitution there is need for a reform for proper screening of candidates because again a wealthy, corrupt, evil hearted, incapable candidate will become president of America. There should be proper exams of each candidate to test IQ level, history, economics, political current affairs and justice qualities. The current US democratic system is completely failed. I don’t know how they use it.

        • Democracy!
          Any twot with a mouth and a lot of money can become the leader!
          No training or past experience needed! In fact,none is best.

          And this is the chaotic “freedom and democracy” that America BOMBS into other countries!

          They have no honour. They have no decency and their morals stink. Time that nation disappeared for good – perhaps Yellowstone will blow up and burn the lot of them. It would be a welcome good riddance.

      • Pretty disgusting that America thinks “respect” is something you buy and not something you earn. But hey – that’s the Americunts for yah!

    Excluding yourself + Israel…. that’s 31 million for you —- and 7 billion against.

    • Joe

      Those absent or abstained can be taken as support because of the US cohesion

      That means the whole world

    • Bob

      The absurd and cautionary tale of Nauru. A small island that was completely covered in guano – seabird shit – that was for decades strip mined for high demand and high value phosphate fertilizer. But the folk of Nauru didn’t save a penny from their finite resource exports – they squandered it all on imported indulgences. With the end of the guano the economy collapsed, so next in 1990-2000’s Nauru attempted to turn itself into an international money laundering haven. With openly fraudulent banking institutions and passports available to any paying criminal syndicate in world, before eventually Nauru’s financial sector was internationally blacklisted. Now, this tiny island nation state, broke and unsustainable, will vote for any old dubious scheme at the UN – if another state throws a dollar at them.

      • Brother Ma

        Read and weep.this is what all non german- speaking countries will be like soon.

    • Rob

      Why US support Israel in the Middle East because due to Israel demands for US dollars, US weapons and US army will be high in the Muslim countries.

  • Rob

    The trump decision on Jerusalem has exposed IQ level of trump.

    • John Mason

      Trump is a specialist at Bankruptcy and as a POTUS will bankrupt the US.

      • Rob

        Trump will disintegrate America.

  • Rob

    US influence disappearing in the world because the biggest market the Middle East have shown interests in the weapons of Russia and China due to low cost, bespoke, better quality and joint production. US is a big threat in the world, support terrorism and will be soon dominated by the rest of the world.

    • John Mason

      Most of those countries are more interested in Chinese investments and the future to what the Silk Road project has to offer compared to the US who have nothing substantial to offer except famine.

      • Joe

        Not true.
        Most countries know what is the logical things not to do while negotiation is on going.

        Israel can still have Jerusalem if there is an agreement and not be decided by one country .

        • Rob

          You are logically wrong. In Palestine Israel entered secretly and taking land from native Palestinians. Trump Jerusalem decision is nonsense. Whole world condime it. Wake up don’t dream it.

  • Hrky75

    128 for the resolution, 9 against and the funniest part – 36 abstained. And then most of them issued statements supporting 2 state solution and East Jerusalem as capital of Palestine and denounced any “revisionist” and one sided actions. Meaning – we were against but lack balls to vote so.

  • Gregory Louis

    Well my country abstained fair considering this has little to nothing to deal with us or Foreign Policy

    • John Mason

      What country? Abstaining usually means you haven’t got the courage to be independent.

      • Gregory Louis

        Haiti we have alot of political problems so that’s mostly why you can blame the US and UN for that shit I’m just happy we didn’t get involved in another political mess

  • Rob

    Like a bully man Natenyahu openly attacks every middle east country against international law which is an open political crime.
    Natenyahu also attacks residential blocks, hospitals, schools, Mosques in Palestine. He harass, torture and kill children and women of Palestine.

    If tomorrow another country bombed Israel so then Trump will be pissed off or not.

    • John Mason

      You foregot to mention the stealing of palestinian territory.

  • Rob

    Trump should realize that supporting terrorists like Israel is not in favour of America.

  • John Mason

    One notices that of the 9 countries that voted against have US bases especially in the Pacific. Those threats to cut aid is a precurser to the US going broke. Petrodollar on the way out and being replaced by the Chinese and Russian system.

    • Rex drabble

      Great observation.It is indeed looking very bad for the great destroyer of peoples.
      Trump has made some very stupid decisions,thats great for the world as we now know without a doubt he is owned.
      Russia and China are the future and NOTHING can stop it!

  • PZIVJ

    Looks like all of Western Europe voted yes.
    Good show of solidarity against Trump I think. :)

    Imperialism’s vassals abstained or voted against. Now the whole world knows.

    • Brother Ma

      Note vassal state english- speaking countries,mid -level power like australia and canada voted pro us israeli whilst the weakest and strongest new zealand and uk voted against us and israel.

  • Tudor Miron

    Remember me posting that global center of power being moved from US to China in front of our eyes? Trump is working for this agenda (reformatting US according to gp plan) and as I said – to get there he’s making moves that make it for US vassals harder and harder to obey. Israel should not be too happy with US move. US will step aside and Israel will be left along with many friends around it. There are many rumors that gp thinks that Judaism/Zionism has worked itself out and they will use another tools now. Some even say that final holocaust it coming. Now at this moment in time my words may sound weird but same could be said a year ago when I was predicting current US situation.

      • Tudor Miron

        Do you know Russian? (Ivan name :)) There’s a large body of knowledge available on this matters. Global predictor is a term used for the top branch of global governing force – deep state if you wish to call it that way. Term references the way that “social super structures” are actually governed. If you don’t speak Russian than here’s a couple of translations of most general terms of that theory. What I like about it – it kind of sums it up and connects all the dots in fairly simple yet elegant way. This provides a broad picture of what is going on and how it all developed.

  • RichardD

    The UNGA 377 A Jerusalem resolution passed with 75% of the vote. That’s enough to bypass the US veto to provide Palestine full UN membership using the 67 border. It’s obvious from the history and statements of the Israelis that they have no intention of agreeing to any type of negotiated settlement agreeing to East Jerusalem as the capitol of Palestine. So the whole negotiated settlement prerequisite is a non starter. Which leaves the 67 border as the default position.

    It’s highly questionable if Israel would even agree to participate in negotiations with the Palestinians using a “mediator” other than the highly biased Jewmerican government, which has the largest population of Jew pedophile rape cultists on the planet. The coercive behavior of the Jewmerican government leading up to today’s vote would be misdemeanor and felony violations of applicable voting laws in most jurisdictions.

  • Peter Jennings

    Can the UN really be in any doubt as to who runs its organisation?
    UN representatives are only there to make the US and its poodle, nato, look legitimate.

    Meanwhile the isreali expansion goes on, unabated, war crimes in Syria and elsewhere are ignored as are UN mandates. Really, the only thing left at the UN to turn up for are the excellent lunches and perks.
