Reader comment on: Obama Promotes anti-Israel Statement at UN

Submitted by Scott Sperling (United States), Feb 25, 2011 12:25

While I recognize that this is a journal of recent articles, I don't think that the JPC did itself any favors by simply reprinting the final article from Feb. 18 without even so much as a tagline anywhere in this email indicating that, in fact, the U.S., at the behest of President Obama, did veto the resolution. I am disappointed that this fact was missing from your account.

Jewish Policy Center replies:

The veto should have been unnecessary. Since everyone knew the US would do it, the real goal of anti-Israel countries was not the vote - the conclusion being foregone - but the ability to use a Security Council platform for vitriolic condemnation of Israel. Those diatribes are now part of the permanent UN record. The US has, historically, used its powers of persuasion to avoid the pillorying of Israel - this time it chose to let Israel sit in the dock.
