President Rivlin: We Expected the U.S. Would Stand By Us

0

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called the UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel “disgraceful, serious, and unfortunate,” that “brings us no nearer to negotiations with the Palestinians, but rather makes such a prospect even more distant.”

“We expected that the United States – our greatest ally and friend which has stood unwavering on the side of Israel’s security needs throughout the years – would stand by us at this time and not abandon us, leaving us in the hands of a cynical body driven by alien interests.”

Opposition Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid called the UN resolution “dangerous, unfair, and Israel doesn’t accept it….When a murderous terrorist group like Hamas praises the decision of the Security Council, it’s clear whom it serves.”
