In the continuing fallout from the UN resolution on Israeli settlements, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer joined a panel on “Special Report” Monday to discuss his take.
“This was a U.S. operation all the way,” Krauthammer said. “This is very serious damage that cannot be undone because you can’t change a Security Council resolution without the acquiescence of the Russians and the Chinese, and you’re not gonna get it.”
Krauthammer stated: “We’re paying an organization that spends half its time — more than half its time and energy and resources and bureaucracy trying to attack the only Jewish state on the planet, a tiny little spec, while genocide, mayhem, murder, terrorism is going on all over the world. It’s an obsession that to an outside a observer appears to be insane. Why are we doing this? And the rest of the time is spend undermining the United States and democracy and our allies around the world. it as an organization that exacerbates tensions, it does not assuage them. It was born in hope, the end of the Second World War. It turned out to be a disaster. Any move to minimize our support for it, any move to get it out of the US, imagine if headquarters were in Zimbabwe. The amount of weight and coverage it would get would be zero. I think that’s good real estate in downtown New York City, and Trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos.”
