Netanyahu’s reaction to UN vote doesn’t have ‘much to do with foreign policy’

NEW YORK – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reaction to last week’s anti-settlement UN resolution has little to do with foreign policy and more to do with internal politics, according the Israel Policy Forum’s Dr. Nimrod Novik.

Since the resolution passed, Netanyahu has been criticized for his aggressive response to the vote, which included accusing Washington of organizing and advancing the resolution; recalling Israel’s ambassadors to Senegal and New Zealand; summoning the ambassadors of all the UN Security Council states; and calling on ministers to curtail visits to the 14 countries that voted for the measure.
