NEW YORK – The Zionist Organization of America has praised the Bush administration’s position that it will veto all future U.N. Security Council resolutions concerning Israel unless they condemn Palestinian Arab terrorism against Israel.


The U.S. ambassador to the U.N., John Negroponte, recently announced that the U.S. will not consider supporting any future Security Council resolutions unless that include: an explicit condemnation of terrorism; condemnation by name of the Palestinian Arab terrorist groups Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade (which is part of Yasir Arafat’s Fatah movement); a call for both Israel and the Palestinian Arabs to pursue a settlement of the conflict through negotiations; and recognition that any future Israeli withdrawal from territories it has recently entered is connected improvement of Israel’s security situation.


ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said: “We strongly commend the administration’s forthright and principled stand against Israel-bashing at the United Nations. The Bush administration has made it clear that the anti-Israel lynch mob will no longer enjoy unquestioned control of the U.N. Security Council.”
