UN Demands Israel Stop Ripping Off Palestinian Resources

The U.N. General Assembly, by a vote of 156-5, called on Israel to immediately stop its decades-old practices of exploiting, damaging, depleting and endangering the natural resources of the Occupied Territories.   Canada joined the U.S., Micronesia, the Marshall Islands and Israel in opposing the motion.   For what it's worth, Israel's raping of the Palestinian lands is a flagrant and never-ending violation of international law.

Even the UK under Cameron hasn't fallen as low as Canada in supporting Israel.

No, of course not, BY. Cameron lacks the fundamentalist theocratic instincts of the Harper government. I wonder who the U.S. had to threaten to deport to get Micronesia and the Marshall Islands onside.
