U.S. ambassador to UN uses VERY BAD choice of words after vetoing Gaza ceasefire resolution


After the United States vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution for a cease-fire in the Israel-Gaza war, the nation’s ambassador delivered remarks that included an unfortunate phrase.

The resolution brought up for a vote on Tuesday called on Israel to execute a cease-fire against Hamas in Gaza, just as the Middle East nation is on the verge of possibly invading the city of Rafah. Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, called the resolution out as “wishful” and “irresponsible” as the U.S. offered an alternate text.

Greenfield cast the only vote against the measure proposed by Algeria, while 13 members of the Security Council voted in favor.

The ambassador defended her vote against the resolution and said “we were forced into a vote that did not reflect” the consensus.

“Perhaps some on the Council did not actually want a resolution to pass,” she continued.”Because if they did, today’s vote would not have happened.”

She pressed on the text of a resolution the U.S. favored which called for a temporary ceasefire with Hamas releasing the hostages first. Unfortunately, in declaring that the U.S. would stick with its draft, Greenfield pledged to work toward “a final solution” to the ongoing conflict.

“The draft we’ve presented is a forward leaning resolution. And it is one that we intend to work on in good faith with other Council members to ensure it gets over the finish line. That kind of process was, disappointingly, absent from negotiations on the text we just voted on,” she said.

“All to say, we are not giving up,” Greenfield added.

“We are eager to continue working with the Council on this proposal: One that would see a temporary ceasefire as soon as practicable, based on the formula of all hostages being released. And one that would get aid into the hands of those Palestinians who so desperately need it,” the ambassador continued.

“All told, we intend to do this the right way, so that we can create the right conditions for a safer, more peaceful future. And we will continue to actively engage in the hard work of direct diplomacy on the ground until we reach a final solution,” she said.

  1. The vote was a joke to start with since the UN is totally corrupted and anti Israel. But , on her statement to use the words “ final solution” is par for this anti Israel administration and the Democratic party! It was no mistake.
