Sen. Cruz: The UNSC Has No Authority Over Israel's Sovereignty
Condemns anti-Israel UNSC resolution, rebukes Obama Administration for not immediately signaling support for our close ally
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today released the following statement rebuking the United Nations Security Council for its latest attempt to delegitimize the nation of Israel:
"With hundreds of thousands dead in Syria, jihadist refugees mowing down Christmas shoppers in Berlin and the People's Republic of China weaponizing its artificial islands in the South China Sea, it is ridiculous that the United Nations Security Council would even consider wasting its time condemning Israel for building on its own sovereign territory," Senator Cruz said. "The UNSC, which over and over has pursued avenues to delegitimize the nation of Israel, has no authority on this matter. The Obama Administration should be ashamed for not immediately signaling our intent to veto this resolution and any others like it, which should be emphatically and unconditionally opposed by all member states who value our alliance with Israel."
