Otsego, MN – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) released the following statement on the Obama Administration’s refusal to support Israel through today’s United Nation Security Council Resolution vote:

“I am beyond disappointed that rather than standing with our strongest ally in the Middle East, the Obama Administration chose to isolate the nation of Israel. Even worse, the Administration has indicated it will not use its veto power to halt this resolution from being put in place. Today’s vote, or lack thereof from the United States, is an incredible setback for the future of peace in Israel and the Middle East as a whole. I am confident that the incoming Administration is committed to upholding and strengthening our relationship with Israel and look forward to supporting those efforts.”
