UNITED NATIONS  A lopsided majority of United Nations members rebuked the
United States on Thursday, denouncing its decision to recognize Jerusalem
as Israels capital and ignoring President Trumps threats to retaliate by
cutting aid to countries voting against it.

.

In a collective act of defiance toward Washington, the United Nations
General Assembly voted 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions, for a resolution
demanding that the United States rescind its Dec. 6 declaration on
Jerusalem, the contested holy city.

.

The resolution is nonbinding and therefore largely symbolic, but the vote
indicated the extent to which the Trump administrations departure from a
50-year international consensus on Jerusalems status has unsettled world
politics and contributed to Americas diplomatic isolation.

.

Major allies like Britain, France, Germany and Japan voted for the
resolution, though some allies, like Australia and Canada, abstained.

.

Carrying out a promise to his base of supporters, Mr. Trump upended
decades of American policy with his decision on Jerusalem, aggravating an
emotional issue that has festered since the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, when
the Israelis occupied the entire city.

.

any Security Council resolutions since then, which have the force of
international law, have warned that Jerusalems status is unresolved, that
claims of sovereignty by Israel are invalid and that the issue must be
settled in negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians.

.

The new resolution raised questions about whether Mr. Trump would deliver
on his threat on Wednesday to withhold American aid from countries that
broke ranks with the United States. While he has significant legal
latitude to do so, experts said it would be very difficult to
substantially cut off countries like Egypt and Jordan that are strategic
partners of the United States in the Middle East.

.

Israel denounced Thursdays vote, likening it to a 1975 resolution equating
Zionism with racism, a decision that was repealed after 16 years because
of intensive American pressure that included withholding American dues
payments to the United Nations.

.

Its shameful that this meeting is even taking place, Israels envoy to the
United Nations, Danny Danon, told the General Assembly. Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel said in a Facebook post: Israel completely
rejects this preposterous resolution. Jerusalem is our capital. Always
was, always will be.

.

The American ambassador, Nikki R. Haley, called the vote null and void,
declaring that no vote in the United Nations will make any difference on
the United States plans to move its embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv,
which she called the right thing to do.
