The article highlights the reaction of Israel's members of Congress to Palestine's bid for United Nations (U.N.) membership. It reveals that Israeli legislators have continued to seek to punish the Palestinians for their U.N. bid following the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) vote to admit the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as a full member in October 2011. The legislators have threatened to cut off all aid to the Palestinians.
