The despicable United Nations voted near unanimously to condemn the United States on Thursday.

This is the same group of 193 nations that care so much about their group efforts that they rely on the United States to foot a full 25% of their overall budget!

Yes, we, the nation being condemned, actually pays (in 2015) 22% of the UN budget, and 28 percent of the peacekeeping budget!

So, why did the UN choose to condemn the one member who pays the bulk of their expenses?

Because we finally made good on a promise and recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the state of Israel.

From Fox News:

The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted on Thursday to condemn President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.  

The 128 member states of the UNGA voted to condemn Trump’s move, with just seven other states joining the U.S. and Israel in voting against the resolution. There were 35 abstentions. 

The vote was taken shortly after the 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.”

Haley was not happy with the condemnation, and she fearlessly voiced her displeasure, promising the nations who voted to condemn the USA that we would not soon forget the slight.

Only eight other nations stood with us against the foolish attack.

They were Israel, Guatemala, Honduras, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, and Togo.

35 other cowardly nations chose to abstain from the vote so as not to show favor to us but also to attempt to avoid our ire.

Friends like Canada, Australia, Colombia, Hungary, Haiti, Poland, Mexico, the Philippines, and South Sudan all abstained in an effort to remain on good terms with everyone involved.

Sadly, 128 others voted to condemn our decision to acknowledge that Israel has the sovereign right to handle its own affairs as her people see fit.

The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia all voted to condemn us for supporting our friend and ally, Israel.

It was  a sad and disturbing day at the United Nations, but this lesson should serve to reinforce our understanding that the majority of the nations in the UN despise us and our values.

We simply don’t belong in the United Nations today.
