JNS.orgThere would be “a violent pushback if there’s any effort by the U.N. Security Council to set the terms of peace negotiations” between the Israelis and Palestinians, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Saturday night during a press conference in Jerusalem with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Graham’s comments came against the backdrop of the unilateral Palestinian push at the Security Council to pass a resolution that would set a deadline for the establishment of a Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 lines. Graham said he would act to halt U.S. funding for the U.N. if the U.N. backs unilateral Palestinian actions.

On the Iranian nuclear program, Graham said, “In January of next year, there will be a vote on the Kirk-Menendez bill, bipartisan sanction legislation that says, if Iran walks away from the table, sanctions will be reimposed; if Iran cheats regarding any deal that we enter to the Iranians, sanctions will be re-imposed. It is important to let the Iranians know that from an American point of view, sanctions are alive and well.”
