Republican Senators Introduce Bill to Defund UN Over Anti-Israel Resolution

On Thursday, Republican Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) introduced legislation that would defund the United Nations over the Security Council’s passage of UN Resolution 2334, which calls Israeli construction in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem “illegal.”

The “Safeguard Israel Act” states that the U.S. government will be prohibited from giving any money to the UN, or any of its affiliates, until President Barack Obama confirms the UN resolution has been repealed and can certify that he has done so. America provides the UN with 22 percent of its budget, contributing $8 billion to the largely anti-Israel organization annually.

“United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 falsely claims that Israel’s sovereignty over the eastern part of Jerusalem and Jewish communities in the West Bank are illegal under international law, and that the Old City of Jerusalem, along with the Temple Mount, the holiest site for the Jewish people, and the Western Wall are ‘occupied Palestinian territory,’” the Safeguard Israel Act states.

The December 23 anti-Israel resolution 2334 passed nearly unanimously despite the Obama administration’s decision to break with tradition and abstain from voting instead of vetoing it. Because the United States is a permanent member of the UN Security Council, an American veto would have automatically stopped the resolution and prevented it from passing.

    It’s about time Graham got his head out of the sand, He has two short years to convince the voters of his state that he really is a republican. He has been acting like a democrat lite for so long it’s hard to imagine him not being a lefty.

    A VA center at the now UN building sounds like a feasible plan.

    Interesting how theJews are God’s chosen people and yet the American Jews consistently vote for the Democrats who have shown a tendency to favor the enemies of Israel. Reminiscent of the biblical story of the Golden Calf ( considered to be the throne of the god Ba’al) and similar in that some of the Jews’ chose to worship the throne of Ba’al ( the god of licentiousness) over the Covenant with Yahweh!!!

    The Democrats are consistently on a course to irradicate all that is good by injecting it with all that is evil !! No ifs,ands,or buts they must be stopped and their actions reversed …never to be re-introduced into our laws again!! This is now America’s centuries long exodus from the evil ( political slavery of the Progressives) of the past 100 years….God has given us another chance to start…we cannot fail to finish the job this time.

    Defund the NWO freaks for life, kick them out of our country and turn the building that we keep up, and use it for good, like our VETS.!!

  • justinwachin says:

    I don’t know that this plan will work but it is worth a try. I’m tired of seeing our nation give money to a variety of organizations and get nothing in return.

  • Rick D. says:

    Great move!! Just what exactly do we gain by funding these clowns? I t seems to me that it’s been a 1-way street…..we do the giving & UN does the taking!!

    The American Jews helped bring this about by voting Democrat. They were in denial in the 1930s and they are in denial now. Until recently, I lived near a Jewish community and have many Jewish friends.

    In 2008 The Jewish neighborhoods had Obama and other Democrat signs proudly displayed on their front lawns. Many of them became disgusted with the way Obama treated Netanyahu and how he tried to throw Israel under the bus during his first term. Many Jewish businessmen I know were up in arms about the constant new restrictions imposed by Obama and his Czars that makes it harder for them to do business. They were also appalled by the way Obama seems to be kissing the backsides of Arab countries that hate Israel. Many even suspect that Obama is Anti-Semite. In the second term they were just as upset with the Obama Administration.

    Did that change their minds about voting against Obama or any other Democrats? Not in this lifetime. During the 2012 election I went to those same neighborhoods and saw just as many Obama and other Democrat signs on those same front lawns. They will vote Democrat because they can never bring themselves to vote Republican. In the 2016 election I saw Hillary and other Democrat signs on those same front lawns.

    Some people can’t even learn the hard way. Almost seems as if it is a disease. In the end the Jews will vote themselves right into another Holocaust and take all of us with them.

    Run them out of this country on a rail and reclaim our valuable real estate. Consider turning it into housing for homeless veterans,

    Defund and Remove Our Seat From The UN…
    Why furnish Funds for Nations to convene together and vote Against Us and Our Allies…
    22% or 8 Billion Dollars can be used to the USA’s Advantage Instead…

          1. Tiger says:

            LMAO I think we need to get rid of the UN and should have done so long ago. This last stand on Israel, giving every holy site of the Jews to the FAKE Palestinians, never were such a people or a place. Most know that and since 1922 with the League of Nations and the backing of 51 Nations at the time it was declared and decided that all the Holy Lands belonged to the Jews. When they handed over to the UN is when the breaking of Resolutions began a new Ruling Royal Family had come into power the Saudi. Believe me I have learned a bunch, some I knew some I did not but bottom line is the UN has to go.

            I had some idgit on here tell me we had to give all that money to Iran or the International Court was going to get us. I told him we are a Sovereign Nation, we have a Constitution and government and a Judiciary and the International Court has no say so over us. I learned that serving in this war. Bush made agreements with all of Europe where we would be that we could not be picked up as soldiers for War Crimes, the court was already formed so Bush made sure we had that agreement, otherwise if they wanted, they could have picked us up if we left the base.

            I think growing older has been good for me.

          2. The Redhawk says:

            The League of Nation begat WWll and the UN seems to be on course to begin a world Conflict over the Middle EAST along with DUMBASSED policies by Obama/Clinton/Kerry lack of SPINE

          3. Tiger says:

            True related to O/Kerry and Clinton and their pushing the Muslim agenda. But they didn’t start WWII. I don’t think.

            The League of Nations, 1920. The League of Nations
            was an international organization, headquartered in Geneva,
            Switzerland, created after the First World War to provide a forum for
            resolving international disputes.

  • arthur M. alex says:

    Defunding is patently insufficient!

    The U.N’s day has come, and should have been gone 60-years ago!

    It is the Tower of Babal on the East River, illegitimate in its basic premise, POLITICALLY corrupt, and pornographic to its foundation.

    The “Unnecessary Nations” must be banished from our territory, and moved to whatever barbaric entity like the current “Capital of ISIS, where it can suffer, and die a debilitating, AND PAINFUL death!

    BOYCOTT HOLLYWOOD!

      The greatest mistake the United States made in the 20th Century was to join the United Nations. The next greatest mistake was to allow it to be headquartered in this country.

    2. Jo Ann Kowalski says:
