McMorris Rodgers on Obama Administration’s failure to veto Anti-Israel UN Resolution

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON (December 28, 2016) — Upon the Obama administration’s failure to veto the United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned Israeli settlement construction, Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) issued the following statement:

“The Obama Administration’s failure to veto last week’s United Nations’ vote censuring Israel is a low point in the sixty-eight year history of diplomatic relations between the United States and Israel,” said Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05). “Fortunately, a new administration and bipartisan Congress will begin to rebuild trust and cooperation with Israel, and begin anew on the road to a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.”
