Obama Still Open to Anti-Israel Resolutions at the UN
Ambassador Samantha Power confirmed that Obama’s reassessment of relations with Israel could involve advancing anti-Israel resolutions at the UN.
The Obama administration could propose anti-Israel resolutions at the UN, US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power told Congress. Speaking to the foreign operations subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, Power said that the US would continue to support Israel “when it matters.”
Several members of the committee expressed concern about suggestions that the US would no longer use its veto power to protect Israel from condemnation at the UN.
The leading Democrat on the committee, Rep. Nancy Lowey of NY, said she was worried by reports “suggesting a reevaluation of our long-standing policy of defending Israel at the UN.”
Subcommittee chairwoman Kay Granger (R-TX) added, “I am also very concerned about recent statements from administration officials that suggest the United States is reevaluating its approach to the peace process and reports that the US may support a UN Security Council resolution laying out conditions and establishing deadlines.”
