Before the United Nations once again showed its true colors on December 21st when it voted 128-9 in favor of a resolution declaring President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as "null and void", much has  been happening behind the scenes to try to change the entire culture and narrative of the United Nations and its affiliates.

The turning point and also the low point of the United Nations occurred on December 23rd, 2016 when the Security Council passed resolution 2334 declaring Israel's building in Judea and Samaria a  "flagrant violation" of international law and the activity has "no legal validity" without a veto from the United States.  For months before this resolution was passed I among others tried to warn the world of the plan by the Muslim world to use the United Nations to impose a PA/PLO State in Israel defined by pre-1967 borders.

President Obama was directly involved in promoting this approach and avenue. The result was resolution 2334. President Trump in contrast has been one of the United Nations strongest critics. He has given the United Nations a run for their money. On October 12th, 2017 President Trump wisely pulled out of UNESCO, the UN agency dedicated to education and culture, citing an Anti-Israel bias. This also saved the American taxpayer 550 million dollars. UNESCO in 2016 denied any Jewish connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.

On December 18th the United States vetoed a Security Council Resolution against President Trump's declaration that Jerusalem was Israel's Capital. President Trump and the Permanent Representative of the United States Mission to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley have finally taken on the United Nations in an attempt to make it a "responsible" organization. They should be congratulated for their efforts. Their threat to stop funding the United Nations should not be taken lightly.

The United States contributes 8 Billion dollars annually to the ungrateful Body. There is a new sheriff in town and the United Nations better wake up to the new reality. The President has many ways to shake up the place. His efforts have not gone unnoticed.
