Inter alia, this resolution criticized the UNSC for passing Resolution 2334, which reiterated that Israeli settlements are in violation of international law, and which demanded a cessation of all settlement activity. The measure also demanded that the United States ensure that no action at the Paris peace conference scheduled to be held on 1/15/17 “imposes an agreement or parameters” on Israel or the Palestinians; rejected any UN efforts to isolate Israel through boycotts; and urged the president and all future administrations to veto all UNSC resolutions that “recognize unilateral Palestinian actions,” including the declaration of a Palestinian state.
