RESOLUTION

Disapproving of President Obama and his administration’s refusal to veto the anti-Israel resolution adopted by the United Nations Security Council on December 23, 2016.

    Whereas the State of Israel has been a loyal friend and strong ally to the United States since its establishment in 1948;

    Whereas the United States Government has historically opposed and vetoed United Nations Security Council resolutions that are one-sided and anti-Israel;

    Whereas, on December 23, 2016, the United Nations Security Council adopted an anti-Israel resolution that threatens peace in the Middle East and breaks longstanding United States foreign policy; and

    Whereas the United States Government, under the direction of President Barack Obama, broke its longstanding commitment to the State of Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East, by refusing to veto this one-sided and anti-Israel resolution: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) disapproves of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 adopted on December 23, 2016;

(2) disapproves of President Barack Obama and his administration’s failure to veto this one-sided and anti-Israel resolution;

(3) affirms the United States Government in the future must continue to oppose and veto United Nations Security Council resolutions that are one-sided and anti-Israel;

(4) affirms its commitment to the State of Israel as our loyal friend and strong ally in the Middle East; and

(5) affirms its commitment to work with future Presidents to strengthen our alliance with the State of Israel.
