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


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.”
