Sanctions Against US

The 14 UN Security Council members -- China, Russia, Britain, France, Brazil, Bosnia, Colombia, Gabon, Germany, India, Lebanon, Nigeria, Portugal and South Africa -- voted in favor of the resolution on Friday. While US vetoed  a UN resolution on illegal Israeli settlements. It has isolated the US in the International Community.
The US had also cast two vetoes in 2006 when the Council tried to pass Arab-backed resolutions that demanded Israel end its military operations against the Gaza Strip.
Much of the international community opposes Israel's settlement expansions, which are labeled illegal under the international law, in the occupied West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
In a statement on Saturday, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) also slammed the US veto, saying that the US move "will only encourage Israel to continue its violations." 

Now is the time that  Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) urgently sanctions against the trading with US by Muslim countries.
