Ambassador Bolton and Other Leaders Headline OJC-Jewish Chamber Press Conference to Support Israel at the UN. Bolton to Obama: Don't support anti-Israel resolutions

Mr. Honig opened the conference by thanking Ambassador Bolton for his longstanding support for Israel. He mentioned how Yaakov Avinu prepared to defeat the enemies of his People through tefillah, Mr. Honig recited a kapitel Tehillim followed by the tefillah of "Acheinu" at the podium.

Dr. Frager explained that the goal of the press conference was to protect the special relationship between the U.S. and Israel from the castigating of Israel that the UN is infamous for. The conference also served as the official launch of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce's mission to Israel on January 3rd and 4th, to strengthen U.S. – Israel economic ties. Former governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, among other high ranking officials, business leaders and activists, will participate in the mission.....

Dr. Joseph Frager asks John Bolton his opinion about Israel Supreme Court decision to demolish Amona. 
John Bolton: "In terms of Amona this is a very difficult situation for me to understand especially between the dynamic of the court in Israel and the politicians in Israel, it is hard for an American used to our system to figure it out.  Nobody wants to see violence...I think the notion that Israeli's should be allowed to live and build on their traditional homeland should not be restricted"  
(My comments: He is a smart guy and he can't figure out why they are demolishing Amona.  He was being tactful)

AFSI Co-Directors Helen Freedman, Judy Kadish and supporters including Charlie Bernhaut were in attendance at John Bolton's press conference at the Isaiah Wall opposite the UN yesterday. Other leaders from the pro-Israel American Jewish community who were present included Mort Klein of the ZOA, Dr. Joseph Frager, Duvi Honig and members of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce's Public Policy Committee, which arranged the news conference. Aaron Klein, noted author, radio host and Breitbart News Jerusalem Bureau Chief, traveled in from Israel to address the conference as well.

As Helen noted, the crowd was standing in the cold with the United Nations in the background on First Avenue at 43rd Street. Ambassador John Bolton remarked that as former UN Ambassador to the United States, he often felt that Israel was left out in the cold, and that was much more severe than the climate temperatures the crowd was experiencing. 

As reported in Arutz Sheva:
Dr. Frager pointed out that approximately 20% of the UN budget is covered by the United States, and our nation therefore has leverage to keep UN anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment in check. "The PA can't use the UN instead of negotiating," he explained.

He was followed by Aaron Klein of Breitbart who detailed the various potential UN resolutions that may be pushed in the upcoming weeks. They include, among others, unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood, a timetable for statehood declaration, or a declaration that Israeli settlements are illegal. "This is almost a sick joke...a diplomatic assault," said Mr. Klein, detailing the Palestinians' repeated refusal to accept a state at the negotiating table.

Ambassador Bolton was the final speaker of the conference, utilizing his impeccable diplomatic pedigree to sound the alarm about the "very far reaching repercussions" that would result from a US abandonment of Israel at the UN. He pointed to the bipartisan US consensus for nearly half a century that a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict cannot be imposed by other countries. "It is a fiction that a resolution across First Avenue will lead to lasting peace," he said.
