The entire process was cynical and manipulative on the part of Barack Obama, John Kerry, Joe Biden, and other anti-Israel officials in the United States government. They engineered the resolution, pressured Security Council members to vote for it, and then abstained from voting.

This malicious parting shot by President Obama may eventually have the salutary effect of causing the USA to withdraw from the UN, or at least to defund it. I doubt that was the president’s intention, but it looks like the new Republican Congress — soon to be working under the leadership of President Donald Trump — could be moving in that direction.
