associates he ordered that canada abstain from the UN General Assembly
FYI the following 9 voted against the resolution: Guatemala, Honduras,
Israel, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau,
Togo, United States.
To this point I have not found the actual resolution but note that
pro-Israel CBC has labelled it as a "controversial resolution". Hmmm!
Isn't it Trump's declaration that is controversial?
The resolution does address upholding existing resolutions on the Holy
City which Trump's move violates. To illustrate this illegality and
that of Israel's ongoing actions in Palestine, read the following from
today's UN news release:
Todays resolution demanded that all States comply with Security
Council resolutions regarding the Holy City of Jerusalem, and not
recognize any actions or measures contrary to those resolutions.
The General Assembly further affirmed that any decisions and actions
which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic
composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are
null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant
resolutions of the Security Council.
In that regard the Assembly also called upon all States to refrain from
the establishment of diplomatic missions in the Holy City of Jerusalem,
pursuant to Security Council resolution 478 adopted in 1980.
In essence, the US embassy will continue to stay where it is because it
is contrary to UN law to move it to Jerusalem. Decades of trying by the
Zionist lobbies have failed to move it a millimetre closer.
