It’s difficult to understand what happened at the end of the week before Christmas. Egypt’s resolution condemning illegal Israeli settlements in the Palestinian Territories was first delayed, then withdrawn after Israel pushed diplomatic buttons in Washington and found incoming President Trump to be an ally.
Then four countries put forward their own resolution and that was passed, because for the first time in a long time the USA did not exercise its veto to strike down a resolution critical of Israel’s illegal acts.
That the Resolution was passed is a very good thing.
But it’s toothless and Israel’s immediate response was to tell the UN it would not comply.
