Gunnar ,   Warsaw, Poland   (12.21.17)
...days. Because soon enough it will be time to...... wait, what was her phrase..... "forge a broad, unified international coalition to counter Iran's malign activities". Good luck with that, Nikki, you're gonna need it!
5. I think the US should speed up it's embassy move.
DOV ,   USA   (12.21.17)

bravo Nikki Halley !!!
i applaud you , lets save money NOW !!!!
9. A victory for "Palestine"
tiki ,   belgium   (12.21.17)
All western and so called civilized countries (like Canada) following the lead of important & relevant countries like "Palestine" & Yemen or the pillar of democracy Turkey, against the US & Israel should be ashamed of themselves for doing so.

Nothing is going to change the status of Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel & Judaism and not one Palestinian life will improve because of this vote.

Next thing the US should do is to push the agitators from 'Palestine' back into their proper seize. Throw them out of the US, close their "embassy" and stop wasting US-taxpayers $$ on them.

10. nothing has changed
ian   (12.21.17)
israel should shoot rock throwers at demonstrations. vandals who deface monuments should be required to first clean them, and then to pay compensation, have his house demolished and have his family deported out of israeli; and finally to serve 10 years in jail.

idf and police are too damn soft.
11. Pyrrhic victories are what Palestine specializes in.
Karl ,   Sacramento   (12.21.17)
Keep those victories coming!
12. Israel needs to lead by shutting down evil P.A. here
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.21.17)
Trump's next logical step is to completely shut down the P.A. in America. But how can we possibly expect him to do so when Israel allows the obscenity of P.A. offices in our land? Israel needs to lead the way by shutting down the evil P.A. here, and end all support for fictional "Palestine".
13. The choice is made
Cameron   (12.21.17)
A sharp awakening coming for those when they roll up to the American door seeking $ and favor in the days ahead.
14. It’s kind of hard to boycott BMW or Chamagne:-), so we’ll do
with the thought that all these arse-licking countries will in the end taste Islam.
I guess the taste will be more or less the same ....
15. Peace negotiations
Michael   (12.21.17)
Thank you President Trump and Ambassador Haley for shining light in a very dark place. It seems the General assembly endorsement was an endorsement of the Arafat phase plan to destroy Israel. How arrogant of the United Nations to tell The U.S. in New York City, USA that the U.S. sovereignty is conditional upon the U.N. 's approval.
(This next comment does not apply to the Czech Republic) Europe supports the 2 state solution.
Jews should always be wary of Europeans and the word solution. The last time the Europeans supported a solution I believe it was called the final solution.
16. Many abstentions are a small victory for Israel
Scott ,   Givatayim   (12.21.17)
The resolution was going to pass no matter what because the Muslim nations are a large bloc. There were many abstentions, including from many African countries which in the past have always voted against Israel. Many EU countries such as Poland, Latvia, Czech Rep., Hungary, Croatia, Latvia & Bosnia (a Muslim country) broke ranks with France which has been very critical of Trump's new policy & abstained. Many Latin American countries also abstained which voted against Israel in the past.
17. The 2 most powerful words of 2018,,,
Rob ,   Wash. D.C.   (12.21.17)
will be "Fake Jews".
18. Kareem don't like it; Rockin da Casbah
Koose E Mack ,   NY Great Satan   (12.21.17)
OK UN Sports Fans, now hear this: You take our money, your diplomats infest our city, you owe thousands in unpaid parking and traffic fines.
I say, move the POS United Nothing out of NY and open an Amusement Park/Shopping Mall Complex...Or better yet, affordable housing for NYers.
These UN Parasites love living in The US and NYC, but they refuse to recognize why life here is so good.
If you vote against us, your funding is cut.....If you don't love it, leave it...and leave now. GTFO of NYC...Go occupy a Tent in some Caliphate.
19. aloha...hows it going? israel & the 7 cannibals (+ 1 PD-LBD)
epo   (12.21.17)
20. Absurd and Arrogant
Jung Yehuda   (12.21.17)
Psalms 2:1-6 (NKJV)
Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
"Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us."
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure:
"Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion."
21. Thieves
Its a shame that jewish nazis are murdering and stealing other people's land for so many years.
22. 9+U.S.A.=10. Scriptures says SEVEN SHEEP NATIONS stand with
Rivkah   (12.21.17)
Israel in the latter days of Gentile world rule. Will TEN nations enter the Millennial kingdom of Yeshua ben haShem instead of seven plus Israel? Time will tell. Perhaps haShem has opened His mercies to three more nations than His original intention.
23. China, India and Russia supported negative to IL resolution.
There are ongoings in foreign politics that defy Israel. This is obvious when the biggest and friendly countries vote against its interests. Even France and Germany voted in opposition to US and Israel.

Never too early for soul searching and regrouping, to do better in the future. It's a high time for Israel to rethink the approach to conducting its foreign policy. No small country in the world can survive without support from friends and allies.
24. Muslims are experts at self destruction and self delusion
C   (12.21.17)
muslim yemen, one of the poorest countries on earth, in the midst of a
vicious civil war, introduced this anti-american resolution which
denies the united states its sovereignty.

the united states cannot allow islam to challenge its sovereignty.
this unga resolution is not simply about jerusalem, eternal
capital of the sovereign state of israel.
this resolution is essentially about islam's challenge to the
premier world power, the united states.

islam is a supremacist political ideology which must be
defeated if liberal democracies, led by the united states,
are to survive.
25. Nonsense
Dahlia ,   LA   (12.21.17)
Doesn't Ynet know that general assembly " resolutions are non binding and can't be legally enforced unlike the Security Council which are binding but have been vetoed?
Nothing has really changed and Trump is far from being "defeated".,
26. Nothing new under the sun, the un is biaised towards Israel
Tehraniporou   (12.21.17)
I still remember the nonsensical resolution Zionism is racism. Long story short, it is time to focus on nutcrackers heirs and begin to assess the suitability of candidates. Candidate shaked has killer legs and her eyes are oooooh, in all wisdom, it is time to have her as the second female pm since Golda Meir.
27. Kick every single UN embassy out of the US
Empress Trudy ,   Raleigh   (12.21.17)
Then demand that the UN itself be removed from the US
28. Huh - and the USA declared the UN resolution null and void
MadDad ,   Johannesburg   (12.22.17)
So clearly there is a dispute over Jerusalem’s status
If you ask the parties to put their money where their mouth is - you will quickly see that the USA is correct - no doubt about it
Jerusalem is, has and always will be - the undevided capital of the Jews and hence Israel despite what the UN General Assembly says
29. UN resolutions are a dime a dozen and go to the highest
MadDad ,   Johannesburg   (12.22.17)
30. Comment...
Adler   (12.22.17)
Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. UN members do not have embassies in Jerusalem because they need to ask permission from the Jewish Sovereign State of Israel . Even if Israel allows East Jerusalem to be named as Palestinian capital through conventional agreements, the truth is that muslims countries will never had embassies in Jerusalem: specially not those that attacked Israel in wars as Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen. Countries threating with nuclear capabilities as Iran, countries Inciting as Turkey, neither arab countries sponsoring and financing terrorism as Qatar, or promoting Unesco resolutions against Jerusalem by attempting to distort history and facts as Marroco, Algeria, Oman, Japan, France or Italy. Israel dont need either eastern european embassies in Jerusalem, Israel remembers the millions of jews europeans killed during WWII.
