Good for Israel.
No sovereign nation should acquiesce to the insane and overbearing demands of outsiders who don’t have their best interests at heart, and such is the situation that Israel currently finds itself in. The United Nations, along with the Obama administration, recently delivered a harsh blow to Israel by demanding that the Israeli people had no right to build on their own land. Thankfully, the Israeli government seems ready to thumb their noses at the U.N. and continues moving forward in a manner that is best for her people while ignoring the haughty criticism of uninformed outsiders.
On Sunday Netanyahu struck a defiant note in criticizing President Obama for stabbing Israel in the back, while also noting that the people of Israel were looking forward to Donald Trump’s presidency.
The Israeli government has also already announced that it will defy the U.N. resolution and will continue to move forward in their own best interests.
“Israel rejects this shameful anti-Israel resolute at the U.N. and will not abide by its terms.”

Deputy Jerusalem Mayor Meir Turgeman also commented on the issue, saying the city remained “unfazed” and their plans remained unchanged by the U.N.’s despotic behavior.
Jerusalem Municipality is set to approve thousands of new housing units in the eastern sector of the city this week.
“We remain unfazed by the U.N. vote, or by any other entity that tries to dictate what we do in Jerusalem,” Deputy Jerusalem Mayor Meir Turgeman, who heads the Jerusalem District Zoning Committee, told the the pro-Netanyahu daily Israel Hayom, the Associated Press reported.
“I hope the Israeli government and the new U.S. administration will support us, so we can make up for the lack (of construction) during the eight years of the Obama administration,” Turgeman said.
In response to the U.N.’s intolerable behavior, Israel has decided to sanction the countries who voted against them and will reduce diplomatic relations with 12 of those nations.
