21st December 2017, a day when America realized that world is not with them, a day when Americans actually felt their insult.
On 6th December 2017 U.S president Donald Trump had officially announced to move U.S Embassy to Jerusalem and declared Jerusalem as a capital of Israel.
After that many countries showed their anger towards this decision of Trump including Pakistan, Iran, British, Turkey etc. Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world having a mosque Al-Aqsa mosque which is the third Holiest site in Islam, Jewish quarter, a church of Christians etc so it would be totally unacceptable for any country to give permission of moving US embassy in Jerusalem.
After this decision of Trump the Palestinians immediately announced that they will seek a resolution with similar demands in the 193-member General Assembly so on 21st December 2017 United Nations General Assembly resolution ES-10/L.22 took place which was an emergency session resolution which declared the decision of Donald Trump wrong and announces their results in favor of other countries and against America.
Votings were held and only 9 countries gave their votes in favor of moving the embassy in Jerusalem whereas 128 countries were not in favor of moving the embassy while 21 countries were totally absent and didn’t say a single world.

Nikki Haley who is the 29th and current United states Ambassador calls UN resolution an insult for all the Americans. She said that it’s totally an insult which won’t be forgotten and it’s one more example of United Nations who are doing more harm than good in addressing the Israel-Palestine conflict. According to America, the nations which gave votes against this decision are those to whom we keep on giving funds from last many years. Just before the resolution Donald Trump also threatened United Nations that if they will give votes against his decision then he will stop giving them funds. Donald Trump has completely refused to accept this resolution and said that he will not accept such decision in any case and he will move the embassy at any cost.
Well, who cares about Donald Trump’s decision when General Assembly has announced it’s decision in favor of other countries. No doubt it’s a big day not only for Pakistanis but also for all those countries who were under pressure and injustice of America. The biggest lesson which America has got from this decision is that with money or with the funding they can’t stop or steal the rights of other people. Everyone has right to live their life without any pressure or injustice and no doubt truth always wins.
