Palestinian state=closed wallet to the UN, says Orrin Hatch

Bravo Senator.  Remove the carrot and then threaten to beat them with the stick if they dare recognize a illegitimate and genocidal fiefdom.  The UN has been spineless the last few decades and we should have pulled out a long time ago.  To withhold operating money in lieu of pragmatic thinking may or may not get their attention, but whatever the outcome the UN is now on notice.

The next 24 hours should be very interesting, as we should be hearing something soon on the UN vote for statehood.

Hatch: Defund UN if it votes for Palestinian state

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, introduced the Solidarity with Israel Act today, a bill that would defund the United Nations if that body votes to recognize Palestine as a state.
“This vote undermines Israel’s security, and should the United Nations change Palestine’s current status, this legislation would prevent valuable American resources from funding the United Nations," Hatch said. "Make no mistake, there will be consequences associated with efforts to undermine the security of America’s friends and allies."
The United States will veto any vote by the UN Security Council that recognizes Palestine as a state, but Hatch's bill would pull funding if the General Assembly voted to classify Palestine as an "observer state," which the United States cannot interdict.
