The Israeli mission said that they would cut their $ 40 million annual contributions to the United Nations because the budget was allocated to four committees on Palestinian issues.
The committees that Israel is defunding are: the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, the Division for Palestinian Rights, the Work of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People, and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories

Israel is also cutting support from a program: the Special Information Program on the Question of Palestine of the U.N. Department of Public Information. Clearly, Israel is refusing to fund these parts of the United Nations because they are working against Israel.
“We seek to stop the practice where the UN is used solely as a forum for unending attacks against Israel,” said the Israeli Ambassador, Danny Danon. This change in funding is because of Obama’s lack of action in the UN Security Council’s resolution against Israel.
This cut is the first measure that Israel will be taking, according to UN representatives.
Israel is one of our best allies, and Obama should’ve respected them, not stabbing them in the back and support the Islamic state instead.
But Donald Trump will be in the office soon, and the alliance with Israel can continue better than the last eight years.
