The Washington Post reports, “The U.N.

I am pleased that the US did not veto today’s UN Security Council resolution calling for an immediate end to Israel’s settlement activity. I am a (Christian, person of faith…) who cares deeply about the welfare of all people in the region, Palestinians and Israelis alike. It is my firm belief that holding Israel accountable for its actions will serve the interest of justice and peace for all. I am grateful for this Christmas gift of hope and peace, and I will support it with my prayers. Thank you, (Name, from State)
