H.Res. 11: Objecting to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 as an obstacle to Israeli-Palestinian peace, and for other purposes.

This was a vote to agree to H.Res. 11 in the House.

H.Res. 11 expresses it is the sense of the House of Representatives opposing United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334.

On December 23, 2016 the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2334 by a vote of 14-0. The United States abstained. The resolution states that Israel’s settlement activity constitutes a “flagrant violation” of international law and has “no legal validity.” Further, it demanded Israel stop such activity and fulfill its obligations as an occupying power under the Fourth Geneva Convention.

The longstanding policy of the United States has been that the peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will only come through direct, bilateral negotiations between the two parties, and efforts to impose a solution or parameters for a solution can make negotiations more difficult and set back the cause of peace. To this end, the United States has opposed, and at times vetoed, United Nations Security Council resolutions dictating additional binding parameters on the peace process. Since 1972, the United States has vetoed 42 Israel-related resolutions in the United Nations Security Council.
