The vote of the Security Council supported by 13 of 15 of the permanent members, co-sponsored by 100 countries was vetoed by the USA with the UK abstaining. This vote was crucial to stop the Genocide which is being inflicted on the Palestinian people in Gaza. It would've provided for a Ceasefire; a permanent one, humanitarian aid, an end to the displacement of 1.9 million Palestinian people and demand the establishment of a Palestinian State.The State of Israel is being granted permission by it's ally; the USA, to carryon committing Genocide. Today, 75 years after a resolution was brought forward from the General Assembly on the Prevention And Punishment Of The Crime Of Genocide, the UN has shown it is powerless to stop Genocide.
