Seventeen of 35 countries voted in favor of the resolution and six voted against it. The resolution was sponsored by the US and 12 other nations. Russia and China were among those who voted to reject the resolution. Of the remaining 12 nations, one was absent and the rest abstained.

Triangular slice of Earth to Bibi. Triangular slice of Earth to Lieberman. Quit. Leave the UN. They did not create our country. They do not know their ass from a hole in the wall. They do nothing. Nothing they say means anything. They are worse than useless. They are harmful to world peace. Quit the UN now.
Oh my God!! NOT the U.N.!
Why, after six months negotiating, they'll write a NASTY letter and tell us to start behaving ourselves!!
And we have so much toilet paper already, we’ll be wiping our a@@#W on UN declarations for the next 50 years. The secret police and the army are complaining about the glut.
And it only took this agency four years to determine that a nuclear reactor was there. We are so honored to be served by such as these.
The plant was destroyed by the Israel Air Force in September 2007...Why is the UN rushing into this?
And what they serve us is brown, wet, and steamy.
