As expected, the U.N. General Assembly delivered a clear rejection of the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital:

THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF THE WORLD’S NATIONS DELIVERED A STINGING REBUKE TO THE UNITED STATES ON THURSDAY, DENOUNCING ITS DECISION TO RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AS ISRAEL’S CAPITAL AND IGNORING PRESIDENT TRUMP’S BOMBASTIC THREATS OF REVENGE.

IN WHAT AMOUNTED TO A COLLECTIVE ACT OF DEFIANCE TOWARD WASHINGTON, AMBASSADORS OF THE 193-MEMBER GENERAL ASSEMBLY VOTED 128 TO 9, WITH 35 ABSTENTIONS, TO APPROVE A NONBINDING RESOLUTION DEMANDING THAT THE UNITED STATES RESCIND THE DEC. 6 DECISION ON JERUSALEM, THE CONTESTED HOLY CITY, WHICH ALSO INCLUDED A PLAN TO RELOCATE THE AMERICAN EMBASSY THERE.

Many of the votes in favor of the resolution came from longstanding treaty allies:
