Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House passage of H. Res. 11, Objecting to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334:

“America will always stand with Israel. Congress and the American people know that the UN has a long and disgraceful history of unjustly condemning Israel, and our nation has routinely vetoed anti-Israel UN resolutions for being ill-founded, unfair, and for undermining the prospects of peace with the Palestinians. Shamefully, that changed when the Obama Administration refused to veto a UN resolution that targets Israel and implicitly blames the Jewish state alone for many problems in the Middle East. Today, the House firmly rejected the Administration’s inaction as contrary to America’s longstanding policy in the region and as a roadblock to peace.”
