Israel summoned the ambassadors of 10 nations to Jerusalem on Dec. 25 to reprimand them over a U.N. Security Council resolution demanding an end to settlement building, Reuters reported. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also repeated at the weekly Cabinet meeting that Washington had conspired with the Palestinians to push for the resolution's adoption. The White House has denied the allegation. The vote passed in the 15-member Security Council on Dec. 23 because the United States did not diplomatically shield Israel by wielding, as a permanent member of the forum, its veto power, instead abstaining. Ambassadors from 10 of the 14 countries that voted in favor of the resolution and have embassies in Israel — the United Kingdom, China, Russia, France, Egypt, Japan, Uruguay, Spain, Ukraine and New Zealand — were summoned to the Foreign Ministry. Sunday is a regular workday in Israel, but most embassies are closed, and calling in envoys on Christmas Day is unusual.
