Trump's decision on Jerusalem "dangerous & insulting", Palestinian Christian leaders say

United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley addresses the U.N. Security Council Trump's decision on Jerusalem "dangerous & insulting", Palestinian Christian leaders say
Andrew Cummings | 25 December, 2017, 17:20

All those who stand with the State of Israel - and decency - must stand up today and say "Thank You, Nikki Haley".

Haley said she was pleased with how the new budget was shaking out.

The move followed after defying the U.S. warning, 128 nations supported the UN resolution that declared "America's coronation of Jerusalem as Israel's capital" null and void, on Thursday.

"You can be sure we'll continue to look at ways to increase the UN's efficiency while protecting our interests", she added.

24 that U.S.

"I like the message that Nikki sent yesterday at the United Nations, all of these nations take our money and then vote against us at the Security Council or at the assembly".

"Hostility between the European Union, Russia and China and the United States regarding the sanctions and fear over a major breach in the nuclear agreement also impacted the vote on Jerusalem's status, generating negative momentum in which any new American proposal on Iran could encounter worldwide opposition just by the fact that it was Trump who proposed it, and that's the danger to Israel", the Haaretz article stated. Let them vote against us.

With 128 votes in favor, with 9 against, leaving 35 abstentions, the UN General Assembly approved a non-binding resolution that demands Washington to back down and refrain from moving its embassy to Jerusalem. We'll save a lot. "We don't care", the President said at the time.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the USA veto of Egypt's draft resolution over Jerusalem on Monday.

Israel was the only country that praised the USA decision.

The result of the vote also riled Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who called the United Nations a "house of lies".

In a post on Facebook on Sunday, Morales said that after talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he made a decision to instruct Guatemala's foreign ministry to move the embassy.

The Philippine vote on the said issue caught veteran diplomatic observers by surprise considering that the country had already stated its support to a "two-State policy" concerning the Israeli-Palestinian issue.

No other country has its embassy for Israel in Jerusalem, though the Czech Republic has said it is considering such a move.

Rock star Lorde, 21, on Sunday canceled an upcoming tour date in Tel Aviv amid pressures from a movement pressing for an artistic boycott of Israel.

The US move is offensive to "Christians and Muslims around the world who consider Jerusalem as an incubator of their most sacred, spiritual and national heritage", Atallah Hanna, the archbishop of Jerusalem's Greek Orthodox church, said in a statement on Saturday.
