GOP condemns UN, but some Democrats vote against resolution

The Republicans in Congress have issued their resolution condemning the UN for their anti-Israel/settlement vote:
Israel’s UN ambassador lauded a bipartisan measure, overwhelmingly approved by the House of Representatives, that rebukes the UN for criticizing Israeli “settlements,” adding that he’s looking forward to working with the incoming Trump administration.

American lawmakers voted 342-80 on Thursday for a non-binding resolution that declares unwavering support for Israel and insists that the US reject any future actions at the UN that are similarly “one-sided and anti-Israel.”

The House action was taken in response to the Obama administration’s abstention in the passing of Resolution 2334 at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) last month, which condemns Israeli “settlements” – i.e. Jewish communities in eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria – as an obstacle to a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The UN resolution essentially endorsed the Palestinian position by calling for the pre-1967 lines to serve as the reference point for final borders. According to the new measure, Resolution 2334 “undermines the prospect for Israelis and Palestinians resuming productive, direct negotiations” and should be “repealed or fundamentally altered.”
But did all Democrats actually back the condemnation along with the GOP? Unfortunately, as the following text from a Republican Jewish Coalition newsletter reveals, a certain portion refused to join:
Washington D.C. – Last night, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted in support of a resolution reaffirming the United States’ commitment to Israel after President Obama turned his back on our closest ally. In the past, a resolution like this would have sailed through with near unanimous support, but once again Democrats showed they are no longer the party for pro-Israel Jews.

Despite House Republicans’ efforts to achieve full bi-partisan support for the pro-Israel resolution, 76 Democrats voted against it.

The least surprising vote against the resolution was Representative Keith Ellison’s. It’s clear that Ellison, a leading candidate to head the Democratic National Committee, and endorsed by establishment Democrats like Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, will continue the anti-Israel policies of President Obama, which alienate and wrongly pressure the one true democracy in the Middle East.

"Five years ago, Democrats on the floor of their convention booed a pro-Israel resolution, and yesterday 76 Democrats in the House voted against another pro-Israel resolution. Today's Democrat Party is no longer a home for pro-Israel voters. The Republican Party is." - Matt Brooks, RJC Executive Director

Those are all people the sane crowd should stay far away from. But will all the Jewish community in the USA recognize what's wrong with them? There's no telling.
