Rabbinical Council of America and Orthodox Union Express Dismay Over UN Vote Upgrading Palestinian Status  
 
Policies Headlines
Nov 30, 2012 -- The Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) and the Orthodox Union (OU) voice their disappointment in passage of the resolution by the United Nations General Assembly upgrading the Palestinian Authority to a nonmember observer state.
The RCA and OU view this unilateral move by the Palestinian Authority as damaging to the peace process and a violation of the Oslo Accords. They believe that a settlement between Israel and the Palestinians can only come through direct negotiations.
Rabbi Shmuel Goldin, president of the RCA, and Dr. Simcha Katz, president of the Orthodox Union, stated:
"Today, at the United Nations, the global community placed peace in the Mideast further out of reach. Today, the world saw the Palestinians' president deliver a speech that was filled with hatred and venom against Israel; a man who truly wants peace does not speak this way. Today, supporters of Israel are grateful to President Obama and his administration, as well as to the Congress of the United States, for their strong efforts to prevent the passage of this resolution, and we thank the other nations who stood with Israel today at the UN."
