Jerusalem asked Britain to vote for anti-Israeli resolution

Israeli diplomatic officials pointedly did not deny a report on Britain’s Jewish Chronicle website Monday that the Prime Minister’s Office called British Prime Minister David Cameron’s office Friday morning asking that he vote for an anti-Israel resolution at the UN Human Rights Council.

The reason, according to the report, was because this resolution was a watered down version of a much tougher earlier draft.

The watered-down resolution, based on the UNHRC’s investigative committee into Operation Protective Edge, passed by a a vote of 41-1, with five abstentions. Only the US voted against, and all eight of the EU countries on the Council, including Britain, Germany, the Netherlands and France, voted for it.
