It gets even stupider:
A highly organized anti-Semitic hate group called "The United Nations" tried to pass a resolution declaring that Israel cannot decide where its own capital is, and that the United States cannot recognize that decision by moving its embassy there.
The United States responded by basically telling "The United Nations" to go shit in its hat.
"What we witnessed here in the Security Council is an insult. It won't be forgotten," U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said after the vote, adding that it was the first veto cast by the United States in more than six years.
"The fact that this veto is being done in defense of American sovereignty and in defense of America's role in the Middle East peace process is not a source of embarrassment for us; it should be an embarrassment to the remainder of the Security Council," Haley said.
The U.N. draft resolution affirmed "that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council."

Hahaha! Israel has blocked the known terrorist jihadis Ilhan Omar and
Rashida Tlaib from entering their nation. Good for them.
I am a bit out of the loop. Who is this Omar guy?

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are a pair of extremely anti-Semitic
Oh, wow. It makes sense, but doesn't that cause a diplomatic mess? Unless this eople is not on official mission to Israel I guess.
This reminds me of this rap singer who was from Israel, and was invited to a concert somewhere in Europe. The organizer of the event got pressure from anti Israel lobbies, who didn't want this guy to perform unless he publicly declared his opinions regarding the Israel - Palestine conflict. The guy obviously didn't comply and they didn't let him sing in there.
I prefer to refer to them as Philistines. They may or may not be the biological successors to the Philistines in the Old Testament, but they're *definitely* the political and spiritual successors to them.
Too bad Jordan didn't let very many of them in. Yes. Israel lets Jewish refugess in. Arab states don't. That's cynical exploitation of this population, analgous to Hamas' human shields.
However, as a matter of fact, these people have become stateless. And there's a lot of them. Ragnar's rejectionist rhetoric doesn't help combat the narrative that Israel simply wants the erasure of Palestinians.
