State House Could Weigh In On U.N. Israel Resolution

State Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Coral Springs, proposed a measure Wednesday that would put the Florida House on record opposing a United Nations Security Council resolution last month that was critical of Israel’s settlements in the West Bank

Moskowitz’s proposal (HR 281) comes after the United States abstained from voting on the U.N. resolution, effectively allowing it to move forward.

The proposal seeks, in part, to have the Florida House find that the passage of the U.N. resolution “undermined the long-standing position of the United States to oppose and veto United Nations Security Council resolutions that seek to impose solutions to final-status issues or are one sided and anti Israel, reversing decades of bipartisan agreement.”

Also under the proposal, the House would find that the U.S. government “should oppose and veto future one-sided, anti-Israel United Nations Security Council resolutions that seek to impose solutions to final-status issues.”
