Does anybody think Netanyahu will take any notice!!!!! Of course not as he believes he and all his Government are above any law including God’s – Mark

The United Nations Security Council has demanded an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants Hamas and the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages after the United States abstained from the vote.
The remaining 14 council members voted for the resolution, which was proposed by the 10 elected members of the body.
There was a round of applause in the council chamber after the vote.
“This resolution must be implemented. Failure would be unforgivable,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres posted on social media.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the failure of the US to veto the resolution was a “clear retreat” from its previous position and would hurt Israel’s war efforts and bid to release more than 130 hostages still held by Hamas.
“Our vote does not, and I repeat that does not represent a shift in our policy,” White House spokesman John Kirby told reporters.
“Nothing has changed about our policy. Nothing.”
Following the UN vote, Netanyahu cancelled a visit to Washington DC by a high-level delegation that was due to discuss a planned Israeli military operation in the southern Gaza city of Rafah, where about 1.5 million Palestinians have sought shelter.
