Biggest Foreign Aid Recipients Voted With US at UN Only 26.5% of Time

Stabbing America in the Back

(CNSNews.com) – The 13 biggest beneficiaries of U.S. foreign assistance in the current, previous and next fiscal years voted in line with U.S. positions at the United Nations an average of just 26.5 percent of the time in 2017.

And if Israel is excluded from the calculation, the aid beneficiaries’ average voting coincidence with the U.S. drops to 20.9 percent, according to data in the State Department’s annual report to Congress on voting practices at the United Nations.

The recently-released report for 2017 uses different methodology this year in a bid, the department says, to get a more accurate assessment of the extent to which other countries align themselves with U.S. interests at the U.N.

The new report finds that of all 93 resolutions brought to a final plenary vote in the U.N. General Assembly, all other countries’ votes coincided with those of the U.S. – that is, both voted “yes,” both voted “no,” or both abstained – an average of 31 percent of the time.
The full list is: Israel (94 percent), Afghanistan (21 percent), Egypt (21 percent), Ethiopia (21 percent), Iraq (21 percent), Jordan (22 percent), Kenya (20 percent), Nigeria (22 percent), Pakistan (24 percent), South Africa (18 percent), Tanzania (21 percent), Uganda (21 percent) and Zambia (19 percent).

We are ruled over by idiots for decades.
