U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) have buried their campaign animosity and joined forces on a bill that would deny funding to the United Nations until the U.N. repeals a resolution that demands Isreal give some of its territory to Palestine.
Cruz said the UN measure is a “profoundly anti-Israel resolution. It declares much of Israel illegal and illegitimate. Much of Jerusalem it declares as not legitimately part of Israel.”
Graham added that “22 percent of the money to fund the UN comes from the American taxpayer. I don’t think it’s a good investment for the American taxpayer to give money to an organization that condemns the only democracy in the Mideast.”
