In first, US endorses Israeli occupation of Golan, votes against 9 anti-Israel resolutions

The US has, for the first time, endorsed the Israeli occupation of the Golan Heights by voting against an annual UN resolution that condemned the occupation and was unanimously approved along with several other resolutions against Tel Aviv.

The resolution titled “The occupied Syrian Golan,” adopted on Friday with 151 votes in favor, two against (Israel and the US), and 14 abstentions, condemns Israel for “repressive measures” against Syrian citizens in the Golan Heights.

The resolution, which was adopted during the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly’s Special Political and Decolonization Committee (Fourth Committee), expresses deep concern that the Syrian Golan, occupied since 1967, has been under continued Israeli military occupation.

The non-binding annual resolution takes issue with the “illegality of the decision” taken by Israel “to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the occupied Syrian Golan,” which is illegal under international law.

The US’ vote against the annual resolution signaled a dramatic shift in Washington’s policy toward the territory, as it used to abstain in previous cases. The administration of Donald Trump had announced its changed policy ahead of the vote.

“If this resolution ever made sense, it surely does not today. The resolution is plainly biased against Israel,” outgoing US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said in a statement.

During the debate, Syrian envoy Bashar al-Jafari vowed that Damascus would recapture the heights by peace or by war.

Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and has continued to occupy two-thirds of the strategically-important territory ever since, in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.

The Tel Aviv regime has built dozens of illegal settlements in the area since its occupation and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government

Tel Aviv has also been pressing the US administration under Israel-friendly President Trump to recognize its claim to sovereignty over the occupied territory in defiance of international law.

Syria has repeatedly reaffirmed its sovereignty over the Golan Heights, saying the territory must be completely restored to its control.

Eight other resolutions against Israel

The resolution on the occupied Syrian Golan was one of the nine separate resolutions which condemned the Israeli regime.

Through these resolutions, the UN reinforced the mandate of its Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), and renewed the mandate of its “special committee to investigate Israeli practices affecting the human rights of the Palestinian people and other Arabs of the Occupied Territories.”

Other resolutions included “Palestine refugees’ properties and their revenues”, “Persons displaced as a result of the June 1967 and subsequent hostilities”, “Applicability of the Geneva Convention… to the Occupied Palestinian Territory…”, and “Operations of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East”.

The member states also unanimously voted for a resolution titled “Assistance to Palestine refugees”.

Apart from the US, which voted against all the nine resolutions, only a few member states – including Canada and Australia – cast nay votes. The majority of member states voted for the resolutions.

  1. THE TRUE HEBREW PEOPLE ARE WAITING FOR GOD HIMSELF RETURN THEM TO THE LAND THAT HE GAVE THEM BY FAITH THEY ARE CHOSING INSTEAD OF DOING IT BY THE WAY OF POLITICAL INTRIGE, AND FORCE BASED ON DECEPTION, SAME AS CHRISTIANS TRUE CHRISTIANS ARE NOT WILLING TO BECOME PARTAKERS OF ALL THE CRIMES THAT THE SO CALLED JEWS ARE CAUSING, GOD KNOWS HIS OWN PEOPLE WEATHER IT BE A CHRISTIAN OR A HEBREW, AND HE WILL PROTECT HIS OWN FAMILY NO MATTER WHAT THE SATANIC AGENDA IS FOR OUR FUTURE ON THIS PLANET NAMED EARTH, BUT NO BODY WILL ESCAPE JUDGMENT OF GOD.

  2. I voted for president Trump, and support everything He is doing to protect the American interest, Here at home, but I need to point out that, Trump has not been immune to the Zionist propaganda inside the church, where the Jews infiltrated all Christian denominations specially can be seen on the large congregation churches which are the ones that the jews as in our government control, easy money taken from the sheep has made possible for them to create large congregation buildings to attract people with money and extract their non biblical 10% of their hard earned money, the Zionist Christian is the one that by indoctrination have come to believe, that jews are the chosen people of God an issue that helps weak spiritual Christians to believe that to make sure that they assure their SALVATION they tend to marry into members of the tribe, as a way of making sure that God sees them with better eyes that just been saved by GRACE, we all can see what I am talking when you see all of His family married to the satanic members of the jewish tribe, lock of research into who these people truly are. at my social level I have seen even missionary sons and daughters making that choice by going straight into Israel looking for a mate. SO I AM NOT SURPRISED THAT TRUMP IN HIS POSITION WILL MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR ISRAHELL TO CONTINUE GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER AND DECEPTION OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. ON THIS ISSUE ALONE I DO NOT SUPPORT OUR PRESIDENT BECAUSE IS WITH OUR OWN MONEY SUPPORT THAT WE HAVE BECOME PARTAKERS IN EVERY EVIL DOING THAT THE JEWS ARE CAUSING TO HUMANITY AROUND THE WORLD, THAT LAWLESS AND GODLESS ATTITUDES AGAINST CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS CONTINUE. SO I WASH MY HANDS FROM ALL THIS EVIL DOING BY EXPRSSING MY PERSONAL BELIEVE TO THOSE THAT FOLLOW AND SUPPORT THE JEW AGENDA WHICH AT THE END WILL END UP BRINGING ABOUT THE ARMAGEDON WHICH IS THEM THAT WILL BRING IT ABOUT.
