Recall that the UN voted strongly to condemn the Trump administration’s decision to move our Embassy to Israel to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem. In a Letter to the Editor of The Wall Street Journal, one letter writer objected to our response to the vote.
America should support other countries’ right to vote their conscience as the US does, whether or not we agree with them.
America does support other countries’ right to vote their conscience, whether or not we agree with them. It’s a two-way street, however. Others, including our letter-writer, need to support America’s right to act in accordance with our conscience—to object to those votes and their outcome, and to act accordingly.
No one—most especially America—moved to prevent those votes from occurring. Others, though, including our letter-writer, are acting, it seems, to deny our right to respond.
