JPost: “Nearly a dozen Democratic senators joined their Republican counterparts on Wednesday to condemn the United Nations for its “anti-Israel efforts,” specifically action last month in the Security Council condemning Israeli settlement activity facilitated by the Obama administration.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, who unsuccessfully lobbied the White House to veto the UN move, endorsed the Senate resolution, which would repudiate the UN in a non-binding manner.”

Opinion: It has been a long time since I have had anything good to say about Democrats. Joining Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) are Democrat Senators Michael Bennet of Colorado, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Chris Coons of Delaware, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Bob Menendez of New Jersey, Bill Nelson of Florida and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan.

Bipartisan support for Israel marks a stinging rebuke for outgoing president Obama and his Secretary of State, John Kerry.

Now Congress needs to get behind President-elect Trump and support the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem.
