Netanyahu, after what critics are calling a stinging defeat on the international stage, is maneuvering to mine deep-seated feelings among many Israelis that their country and its policies toward the Palestinians are overly criticized in a world where deadlier conflicts rage.

He has tried to rally Israelis around him by portraying the anti- settlement resolution as a challenge to Israel's claimed sovereignty over all of Jerusalem.

"I did not plan to be here this evening, but in light of the U.N. resolution I thought that there was no better place to light the second Hanukkah candle than the Western Wall," Netanyahu said at the event.

Netanyahu is claiming that he has "rather hard" evidence that Obama was behind the security council resolution and is threatening to hand over the material to Trump. …
