The USA voted no. And one other nation on the Security Council also voted No. That nation was my own: Australia. To our everlasting credit, we used our remaining time of service as one of the temporary members of that Council, to vote No to this nasty little Resolution. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-31/australia-us-vote-down-palestinian-draft-resolution/5994256 'Australia, US reject latest Palestinian [sic: - CM] call for Israel to withdraw from Palestinian [sic - CM] territories". I will add that the composition of the incoming temporary members is not encouraging. The only probable friend of Israel amongst the new incumbents - who will retain their seats until 2016 - is New Zealand. Muslim Malaysia cannot possibly be depended on; and I doubt that Angola, Venezuela or Spain will be willing to stand up to the islamintern, on behalf of Israel.
