UN Resolution Condemns Israeli Settlements on Palestinian Land

After many years of protecting Israel the US abstained from a vote at the UN Security Council on Friday to allow a UN Resolution to be passed condemning the building of illegal Israeli Settlements in the Palestinian Territory.

In response Donald Trump Tweeted that after January 20 (his inauguration) things will change at the UN. I however fail to see how that will happen. The only way to change this is by passing another resolution in favour of Israel and hoping France, China, Russia, UK or the US do not veto it. Today those propagating for the Palestinian cause got a foot in the door.

The Israelis have responded by saying they would not abide by the resolution, which would be the best definition of a rogue state. I personally hope now they will have serious discussions with the Palestinians.
