US targeted over failure to condemn Israel

Published: 12.20.11, 22:42 / Israel News

Fourteen frustrated members of the UN Security Council are pointing a finger at the United States for blocking any condemnation of Israel's accelerated settlement construction in Palestinian territory. In a move which Russia called historic, diplomats from all regional
blocs represented on the council stepped to the microphone Tuesday to condemn the lack of progress toward a solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.


While the United States was not mentioned by name, their anger was clearly directed at Washington which vetoed a resolution in February backed by the 14 other council members that would have demanded an immediate halt to all settlement building. (AP)
