The UN Resolution which passed recently has garnered a lot of criticism for being anti-Israel.
Both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are against this resolution that our nation failed to veto. Cruz has stated that he will stand against funding the UN until the resolution is reversed.
Spoke w/ Israeli PM @netanyahu tonight to wish him Happy Chanukah & assure him of strong support in Congress. No US $ for UN until reversed.

This resolution stops Israel from claiming some Jewish settlements for their legal territory. It was in 2011 that Obama vetoed a similar deal.
But now he is all for it. In the Security Council, only one veto is needed to stop the resolution form being passed. This means that Obama could have easily stopped it.
On the issue, Cruz said, “Never has there been a more anti-Israel Administration, and today’s United Nations vote is the culmination of their systemic agenda to weaken Israel and strengthen its enemies.”
What are your thoughts on this?
