JNS.org – The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) and former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton urged President Barack Obama to veto any anti-Israel UN resolutions that emerge during his final days in office.

ZOA President Morton Klein and Bolton, who is expected to be President-elect Donald Trump’s choice for deputy secretary of state, held a press conference on the issue Sunday outside UN headquarters in New York City. The Israeli daily Haaretz reported over the weekend that the Palestinian Authority planned to send a delegation this week to Washington, DC, in an effort to persuade the Obama administration to support a UN Security Council resolution that would deem all Israeli settlement activity illegal.

Klein believes that such a UN measure “would only reward Islamic terrorism” and “would legitimize and mainstream the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel.” The US Congress, added Klein, “should cut off funding to the UN and the Palestinian Authority should Obama refuse to veto any such anti-Israel resolutions in the Security Council.”
