Israel Cuts $6 Million to UN in Response to Shameful Resolution

“So Yehonatan made a covenant with the house of David: ‘Hashem even require it at the hand of David’s enemies.’” I Samuel 20:16 (The Israel Bible™)

Israel announced Friday that in an “act of protest,” it will suspend about $6 million in funding to the United Nations in protest of the recent U.N. Security Council vote that condemned Israeli settlements.

The Israeli government explained that the decrease in the country’s $40 million in total funding for the U.N. symbolically represents a cut to the portion of the U.N. budget that is allocated to anti-Israel bodies, including The Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People; The Division for Palestinian Rights; The Work of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices; and the Special Information Programme on the Question of Palestine of the U.N. Department of Public Information.

“It is unreasonable for Israel to fund bodies that operate against us at the U.N.,” Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon said in a statement.

“We seek to stop the practice where the U.N. is used solely as a forum for unending attacks against Israel,” he said.

Israel’s announcement comes a day after the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning the Security Council’s anti-settlement vote. Some American lawmakers have also called for cuts in U.S. funding for the world body.
