On December 23, the United States abstained on UN Security Council Resolution 2334, reiterating the illegality of Israeli settlements in Occupied Palestinian Territory, thereby allowing the resolution to pass.
On January 5, the House passed a resolution 342-80 objecting to the UN vote and providing political backing for Israel’s ongoing colonization of Palestinian land. A similar Senate resolution was reportedly blocked and is not likely to come up for a vote.
