Congressman French Hill Statement on Anti-Israel UN Resolution

WASHINGTON – Today, after the Obama Administration failed to veto the United Nations Security Council’s anti-Israel resolution, Congressman French Hill (AR-02) issued the following statement:

“Down to the bitter end, the Obama Administration continues to undermine and threaten our relationship with Israel. Ambassador Power’s abstention vote might as well have been a vote in favor of this anti-Israel resolution. For decades, the cornerstone principle of American diplomatic policy toward Israel and Palestine has been that only through direct negotiations between the two countries can peace be achievable. Today, with the help of the Obama Administration, the United Nations delivered a major blow to the possibility of peace. The Republican led House, Senate, and new administration must now work to undo this harm, and restore our unshakeable alliance with Israel.”
