Former Ambassador: UN Like 'Drug Addicts' When it Comes to Israel

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

The United Nations Security Council's resolution on Israel's West Bank settlements is "one-sided" and "vindictive," and it will not bring peace between Israel and the Palestinians, former Israeli ambassador Ron Prosor said Tuesday.

"I miss New York, but I don't miss the United Nations," Prosor told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "It looks to me like the United Nations is bashing Israel. They are like drug addicts: They are constantly desperate for their fix and trying to increase the dose from one resolution to the other."

There are many disagreements between Israel and its allies, Prosor said, but still, he agrees with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "friends don't take friends to the Security Council."

What really happened, said the former ambassador is that the "Obama administration basically took the steering wheel and brought it over to those 'Jeffersonian democracies' like Venezuela, Malaysia, Senegal, to decide on Israel's fate."

The resolution is also one-sided and bad for Israel, Prosor said, as well as for America and the region under dispute.

"Why would the Palestinians, anyone, go back to direct negotiations, which they deserted two years ago if they can have freebies and get everything they want without doing anything?" he asked.

He also questioned why the matter would be turned over the Security Council, "which a couple of months ago decided that Israel does not have any connection or the Jews to the temple mount of Jerusalem, and decided in the World Health Organization that Israel creates a health hazard in the Middle East? I mean, come on. Give us a break."

The resolution is also on the verge of being "illegitimate at the end of the Obama administration," the former ambassador said.
