Trump’s Inaugural Rabbi, Marvin Hier, is outraged that the U.S. snubbed Israel at the United Nations.

“Not only was it outrageous but imagine, just a few weeks before a new president takes office to pull a stunt like that?” he told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.

Last month, the U.S. refused to veto a resolution passed by the United Nations Security County demanding an end to Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory. The resolution called Israeli settlements in the West Bank a violation of international law.

“What we have before us now is a three-state solution. It’s like an accordion. You have Ramallah on one side… the Hamas terrorists in Gaza and you have Israel in the middle,” he said. “To say that settlements [are] the reason that, that is the only obstacle for a two-state solution is untrue, ridiculous and prejudicial.”
