And we will remember it when so many countries come calling on us, as they so often do, to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit. That is what the American people want us to do, and it is the right thing to do.
Et spil med konsekvenser Uhmmm endelig fredag, nu var det bare med at få ryddet skrivebordet og komme hjem til en dejlig weekend, hun havde aftalte med sin hjerteveninde fra skoletiden at de bare skulle råhygge hele weekenden, stress af fra dagligdagens grå og triste.
Those are the thoughts that come to mind when we consider the resolution before us today. The decision does not prejudge any final status issues, including Jerusalem’s boundaries. The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly for the very act of exercising our right as a sovereign nation. But this vote will make a difference on how Americans look at the UN and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the UN.
The arguments about the President’s decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem have already been made. The decision does not preclude a two-state solution, if the parties agree to that. Rather, the President’s decision reflects the will of the American people and our right as a nation to choose the location of our embassy. We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations.
Unlike in some UN member countries, the United States government is answerable to its people.
