Ahead of the vote, Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch filed an amendment to a defense bill that would eliminate funding for the United Nations if the General Assembly changes Palestine's status. "Increasing the Palestinians' role in the United Nations is absolutely the wrong approach, especially in light of recent military developments in the Middle East," he said in a statement. "Israel is one of America's closest allies, and any movement to strengthen one of its fiercest enemies must not be tolerated."
so does this mean that the united states is now going to cut off all funding for the united nations?
and that isreal will be adding more sanctions as well as possible ones from the united states as well?
seems this might end up going badly for them in the short term at least but we shal see
www.washingtonpost.com... this link clears it up abit it cuts off all funding for any UN agency that recognizes palestine as a state
