UN Security Council Resolution On Trump’s Jerusalem — How The Countries Voted.

by Anura Guruge





This was the Thursday, December 21, 2017, United Nation Security Council vote as to whether the UN Member States wanted to unilaterally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel per Trump’s pronouncement last week.

128 countries voted AGAINST such recognition, i.e., AGAINST the U.S.A. These included: United Kingdom (UK), France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Russia, Sweden, India, Japan, China, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, etc.

Only 8 countries voted with the U.S. and 7 of them are not exactly household names!

Canada, Australia and Mexico, to THEIR SHAME, kowtowed to Trump.

So, now you know.

128 Against — 9 For — 35 Abstained.
