Jewish protesters at White House celebrate UN rebuke of Israel

The demonstrators on Thursday called for the immediate termination of the Israeli entity and the return of the occupied territories to Palestinians.

They expressed their strong support for President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, who on Wednesday harshly criticized the Israeli regime over its illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

And we are all here to condemn Netanyahu’s accusations against our president, Barack Obama,” he stated.

“And we also have to confirm that what Secretary Kerry mentioned that criticizing Israel, being anti-Zionist is no way anti-Semitic,” he noted.

The Security Council last week passed Resolution 2334, which demands an immediate end to illegal settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories like East Jerusalem al-Quds.

The resolution was adopted after the US refused to veto it, reversing its longstanding policy of shielding Israel from condemnatory measures at the world body.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tried to force the Obama administration to veto the resolution, but Washington abstained from the vote, allowing the measure to pass.

On Sunday, a furious Netanyahu summoned US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro and a group of other foreign envoys over the Security Council’s rebuke of Israel’s settlement policy.
