Israel Suspends Working Ties with 12 Nations Over U.N. Vote
Israel has suspended working ties with 12 nations who voted against their rights to settlements on the West Bank responding to nations that voted against Israel over settlements on the West Bank according to a new report in the New York Daily News reported today. Last week Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to exact a "diplomatic and economic price" from countries who voted against their settlements last week, 14 - 0. The United States did not exercise their veto power in the vote, breaking from it's longstanding policy as a friend and supporter of Israel.
President-elect Trump has stated that things will be changing when he takes office this January.
Countries involved in the vote and subject to Israel's response and "price" include Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan and Spain.
