Israel unhappy with Ghana's United Nations vote over Jerusalem

Israel unhappy with Ghana's United Nations vote over Jerusalem

Speaking on Thursday at the launch of Assuta Hospital in Ashdod and ahead of a UN General Assembly discussion on a resolution calling for the withdrawal of President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Netanyahu said that "today is a very important day in Israel and outside Israel".

Abbas said the resolution "confirms the global community's position on our side", while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the United Nations a "house of lies".

While 128 States supported the General Assembly resolution, only nine opposed it - Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Togo, and the United States - with 35 abstentions.

UN Security Council Resolution 2334 (2016), which purports to deal with the status of "East Jerusalem" (a misnomer for the eastern portion of Jerusalem), among other issues, specifically states UN Security Council "Decides to remain seized of the matter".

"It is in this context that any and all negotiations relating to the future of Jerusalem arise". "What we witnessed here in the Security Council is an insult".

Government added it also still stands in opposition to the continuation of an embargo against Cuba.

On Wednesday, a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly was held in order to vote on a resolution on the status of Jerusalem, which would go against the U.S. for its recent decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

(3) Like all anti-Israel resolutions, this new proposed anti-American, anti-Israel UN General Assembly resolution violates UN Charter Article 80 (the Jewish people's clause) - which preserved the Jewish people's rights to reconstitute the Jewish homeland and closely settle the Palestine Mandate, which encompassed Jerusalem. "This announcement violates global law and reflects a blatant breach of resolutions 242 and 338 of the UN Security Council".

The resolution demanded that all states "comply with Security Council resolutions regarding the Holy City of Jerusalem, and not recognize any actions or measures contrary to those resolutions".
