'What Kind of Mental Illness' Is There at UN?: Ben Stein Rips World Body for Jerusalem Vote
Economist and actor Ben Stein reacted to the United Nations voting overwhelmingly against President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The body voted 128 to 9 in favor of a resolution condemning Trump's action.
Multiple key American allies, including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Japan voted with the majority - against the United States.
Several allies also abstained, including neighboring Canada and Mexico, as well as Australia.
The U.S. and Israel were joined only by a collection of smaller countries, including Guatemala, Togo and Honduras, as well as the Pacific Island nations of Nauru, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands and Palau.
Stein called it a "shame and a disgrace" that an "overwhelming majority of negative votes in the United Nations... have been against Israel."
"I often wonder what kind of mental illness is there sweeping through the U.N. and sweeping through the world that hates Jews so much," he said.
At the U.N. meeting, American Ambassador Nikki Haley condemned the vote as well, pledging that the U.S. will remember it when other countries call on the U.S. to pay more to the body and to "use our influence to their benefit."
Fox Business Network's Charlie Gasparino praised Haley, saying she "laid down a marker" for other countries to take notice.
