Turkey’s dictator Erdogan said ” he hopes the United States will be “taught a lesson” during a United Nations vote that he hopes would required Trump to rescind his declaration on Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and not move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
Just for the record, Israel ‘Jews’ has claimed Jerusalem as their capital city for 3,000 years. The US Congress voted in 1995, 22 years past and then president Clinton signed into law a bill stating Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and ordered Americas embassy be moved to Jerusalem.
Dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan has ordered the murder of thousands, arrested and jailed ten’s of thousands of Turkish citizens that Erdogan feared posed a threat to his dictator take over of Turkey’s government.
Erdogan has openly campaigned in Turkey, lobbied Arabic speaking countries and the UN to oust the America from the middle east and to block American lead middle east peace talks.
President Trump is right to watch UN votes and to carefully consider which countries are ‘deserving’ to receive American foreign aid packages. Americas funding of UN programs must be based on first and foremost on Americas security and what is in the best interest of America.
U.S. ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, issued a strong warning to states who support the resolution — reminding the General Assembly of the financial aid Washington provides to both the UN and many member states.
“We will remember it when we are called upon once again to make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations,” she said. “And we will remember when so many countries come calling on us, as they so often do, to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit.”
Haley added that Thursday’s vote “will make a difference on how Americans look at the U.N. and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the U.N., and this vote will be remembered.”
The resolution was sponsored by Turkey, chair of the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and Yemen, chair of the Arab Group at the U.N.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Jerusalem is Israel’s capital regardless of the outcome of Thursday’s UN vote.
