US and Israel ‘Isolated’ at UN Security Council Meeting on Jerusalem

In an emergency meeting convened by the United Nations Security Council on the crisis prompted by President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the U.S. stood isolated as other members unanimously condemned the decision.

The meeting was called by Bolivia, Uruguay, Italy, Senegal, Egypt, France and the United Kingdom on Friday.

Bolivian Ambassador Sacha Llorenti offered the strongest words of condemnation. Llorenti is known for his outspoken support of the Palestinian people, having debated the issue at the U.N. wearing a Keffiyah: a black-and-white scarf that has become a symbol of Palestinian resistance.

“While there are two parties in this conflict, they are not on a level playing field,” Llorenti said. “One is an occupying power, the other is an occupied people.

“One party builds illegal settlements… One party puts a seige on Gaza… One party takes over the water resources and farmlands of the other …. One of the parties engages in forced displacement. Bolivia opposes the unilateral decision of the United States to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

Other representatives, including France, Japan, Russia, and Sweden, expressed their dismay at the decision, saying that it would lead to violence and potentially ruin chances at the peace process that President Trump claims to favor.

Egyptian Ambassador Amr Aboulatta said he expected the decision to have a “grave” impact on peace.

The U.N. special coordinator for the peace process, Nickolay Mladenov said: “The United Nations has repeatedly declared that any unilateral decision that seeks to alter the character and status of Jerusalem… could seriously undermine current peace efforts and may have repercussions across the region.”

Despite resounding criticism from the rest of the international community, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley maintained that Trump’s move was “simple common sense,” and that the president remains “committed to achieving a lasting peace agreement.” She also accused the U.N. of being “hostile” towards Israel.

Israel’s ambassador was the only other party who praised the decision, calling it “courageous” and demonstrating a “true understanding of justice.”

Since Trump’s announcement, Palestinians have resolutely condemned the decision and erupted in mass “days of rage” protests. Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has called for a “new intifada,” or uprising, against Israeli occupation, a plea backed by Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah.

Protests in various parts of occupied Palestine have met with violence by Israeli armed forces. At least two Palestinians have been killed and hundreds more injured. On Friday, the Red Crescent said they have so far attended 767 injuries in the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza.

  1. Haley’s a simple bi*ch, all right: a simple-minded whore servicing Zionism with her mouth and various other body parts (scarred, calloused knees; sucking pus*y…).

    As for the Zioentity’s “true understanding of justice,” one could not think up a better example of the proverbial “amusing if not so tragic”…tragic, of course, for the stalwart, bent-but-unbowed people of Palestine. May they prevail; may a full measure of true justice prevail….

  2. Nikki Haley’s comments are totally predictable. She’s a nasty piece of work.

  3. I hold hope (when pigs fly) that Trump is ingratiating Israel to get Israel to let their guard down–then he pulls a ‘kol nidre’ … a sting operation to neutralize the mad dog state. Yes, I’m dreaming.

    • There’s no sign at all that he’s going to “Drain the Swamp” either. Trump is “OWNED”, and they even have his son-in-law, stationed in the White House, keeping a close eye on everything…….

  4. We can expect Israeli-instigated false flag violence which will be blamed on the Palestinians/Arabs. Perhaps little “rock-ettes” wil be launched by the ZEWS on their own to blame the Palestinians.

  5. Bolivia’s Ambassador Sacha Llorenti is one quality human being; his statement stood above the others at this meeting of the Security Council for his driving straight to the root/heart of this very unpleasant but important matter. His actions represent the most honorable human qualities, particularly the quality of total integrity, and he epitomizes the caliber of men and women associated with a United Nations reaching its highest potential.

  8. It is past time to examine the actual Historic Record as to just how long the Jews ever really “controlled” that land …… they claim they ran there to escape Egypt ….. but the truth is Palestine & Syria were provinces of Egypt at the time …. why would they escape to a province of their pursuers? Because the Bible is FICTION written by people who did not know history … Jews just barely controlled that region for under 500 years, and even that is suspect …. Egypt & Iraq have a greater claim ……
    According to the Balfour Declaration the “Jewish homeland” is to be located in PALESTINE……. but Jews insist there is NO SUCH THING as PALESTINE ……. therefore Israel is immediately ANNULLED.
    Israel demands the Palestinians “recognize Israel’s right to exist” —-
    How can People that “Do not EXIST” recognize their DENIER’S “right to exist”?!
    Israel DENIES that Palestinians even EXIST!
    Where is Israel’s Recognition of the PALESTINIAN’S EXISTANCE!?
    Palestinian DENIERS are Christ DENIERS.
    Israel is attempting to create a MYTH that the Palestinians “do not exist”
    That is standard “dehumanizing prior to exterminating”
    Israel also DENIES Jesus Christ.
    WHEN Israel acknowledges HIM at all
    Israel calls Jesus “the BASTARD of a Roman soldier and Mary, a PROSTITUTE”
    Israel claims that JESUS is in HELL, boiling in excrement.
    Israel DENIES the Human and Spiritual Equality of NON-Jews with Jews.
    Israel is a HUMANITY DENIER.

    Trump is not in the least bit interested in Israel, Palestine or in fact anything outside of the US.
    Every one of his ‘Foreign Policy’ actions are idiotic unless you look at his poll figures in USA.
    The US needs an enemy, 15 years ago it was decided that ‘Muslims’ fitted the bill and every Muslim in the world suddenly wanted to destroy the US, according to American opinion makers.
    They are trying to replace them with ‘Russians’ but it does not work as Americans realise that Russians are in fact very like themselves.
    What he has done is throw Congress under the bus. ‘You people voted for these idiots, they voted for Jerusalem, so let them handle it. ‘
    He has blindsided both Congress and Netanyahoo, ‘OK you got your wish, now what?’
    Maybe it is a quid pro quo for the tax deal, but I think he is just rubbing their noses in their stupid decisions.
    I think that he is going to more and more do what Congress says, but do it literally. They would not support him in any way, so let the voters see just how bad these fools are.
    In 6 months, America will not have any ‘allies’, just by Trump doing what congress and the voters want.
    He got elected by saying what the voters wanted to hear.
    Congress and the courts have stymied any action, so let the people see the outcome, his hands are clean.

    “Under the relentless thrust of accelerating over-population and increasing over-organization, and by means of ever more effective methods of mind-manipulation, the democracies will change their nature; the quaint old forms—elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest—will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial—but Democracy and freedom in a strictly Pickwickian sense. Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit.”
    – Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited

    He is a genius who is brilliantly exposing the oligarchy.

    Either that or he is a stupid twat.

    • Given that Schumer had been exhorting Trump to hurry up and recognize Jerusalem as Israeli, while other Democrats were preparing impeachment, the facts support Trump having acted under duress. We will likely never know what might have been absent “RussiaGate” etc.

      What we do know for certain is that the “resistance” has been securing the aims of the war party not the American people.

  10. There is no “peace process”. It’s a land grab….all of it.

  11. With regard to Trump’s recent endorsement of modern-day “Jerusalem” as Capitol of “Israel”:

    NEWSFLASH: Edinburgh, Scotland currently sits on the site that was (Old Testament-era) ancient JERUSALEM. Please, study (ancient) HISTORY. Please, read THE GREAT DECEPTION: SYRIA, BRITAIN AND THE ROMAN
    CONSPIRACY, by Comyns Beaumont. He provides extensive & detailed & STUNNING! (geographical and other) EVIDENCES that E.din-burgh/Eden-burgh, Scotland is JERUSALEM of the Old Testament. (The Old Testament contains a partial record of the pre-historic period often described as “Atlantis”. What did the ancient Sumerians/Cimmerians call the original earthly paradise? They called it E.din or Eden).

    It was Roman Emperor Constantine I, who was responsible for the deception, moving the Old Testament-era events which occurred originally in Scotland, and England, to the Near East, after he moved, himself, from Rome to Istanbul, and renamed it CONSTANTINOPLE.

    90% of those who, today, call themselves “Jews” are descended from Eastern European YIDDISH-speakers, whose more ancient ancestors hailed from KHAZARIA. Read THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE, by researcher & author Arthur Koestler. Question: What does YIDDISH have to do with the ancient Hebrew language?

    ZION-ist-Rothschild-“Israel” was established FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME, EVER, IN HISTORY, in 1948 AD. Before that, it was ALWAYS PALESTINE, and it ALWAYS BELONGED TO PALESTINIANS. ZION-ism is a RACIST, SUPREMACIST ideology adopted by an arguably large percentage of those who call themselves “Jews”. Roman Emperor Constantine I has deceived the world, for now over 1,600 years, into thinking that modern-day PALESTINE, is where the events of the Old Testament, and New, actually occurred. They did not. They occurred in the land, that we today call Britain ~ specifically, Scotland and England.
