Israel to withhold $6M in U.N. dues after settlement resolution

 Israel announced it will withhold $6 million from its annual United Nations dues in protest of a resolution condemning Israeli settlements built on land disputed with the Palestinians.

Israeli U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon said in a statement the $6 million, out of a total $40 million in annual dues, represents the percentage his country estimates the United Nations spends supporting Palestinian causes.

"It is unreasonable for Israel to fund bodies that operate against us at the U.N.," Danon said in a statement posted on Twitter.
