By Eliana Rudee.. “See, this day I set before you blessing and curse” Deuteronomy 11:26. On January 3rd, 2018 at the US mission to the UN in New York, Nikki Haley hosted a “Friends of the US” reception for the 64 countries that did not support the United Nations Jerusalem resolution. The non-legally binding UN resolution, passed 128-9 on December 21st in an emergency General Assembly session, condemned US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and beginning the process of moving its embassy there two weeks earlier.

Following the condemnation, Haley extended the invitations to the eight other countries that voted against the resolution, the 35 abstaining countries, and 21 absent countries, thanking them for their “friendship to the United States” and for allowing its right to exercise its own sovereign policy. (See “How each country voted”, below, ed.) 

She said, “The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in this assembly. We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution.” Read the full story.
