Netanyahu put his personal imprint on Israel's show of anger by repeating at the weekly cabinet meeting what an unidentified Israeli government official contended on Friday - that the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama had conspired with the Palestinians to push for the resolution's adoption.

The White House has denied the allegation.

"According to our information, we have no doubt the Obama administration initiated it (the resolution), stood behind it, coordinated the wording and demanded it be passed," Netanyahu told the cabinet in public remarks.

Another official said Netanyahu had ordered that for the coming three weeks, until President-elect Donald Trump takes office, cabinet ministers refrain from traveling to or meeting officials of countries that voted in favor of the resolution.

I suspect that the Israelis have been intercepting communications at the UN that are tied to the resolution.  They were the ones who first raised the issue and contacted President-elect Trump about, while the White House was still trying to downplay their complicity.   I am sure they are constantly using surveillance on Palestinian communications as part of Israel's anti-terror operations.
