And they call Steve Bannon anti-Semitic. Have the Media (D) seen the deliberate undermining of the US-Isreali alliance?
Barack Obama, from the allegedly ‘Democratic Party’, is propping up groups like Hamas who have (in their FOUNDING DOCUMENTS) a pledge to destroy Israel. And they have NEVER renounced it.
‘Palestinians’ are the ‘victims’ that Israel, (the ‘little Satan’) allegedly oppresses. Obama never misses an opportunty to hurt Israel. Case in point:
An Israeli official on Friday accused President Barack Obama of colluding with the Palestinians in a “shameful move against Israel at the U.N.” after learning the White House did not intend to veto a Security Council resolution condemning settlement construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem the day before.
“President Obama and Secretary Kerry are behind this shameful move against Israel at the U.N.,” the official said. “The U.S administration secretly cooked up with the Palestinians an extreme anti-Israeli resolution behind Israel’s back which would be a tail wind for terror and boycotts and effectively make the Western Wall occupied Palestinian territory,” he said calling it “an abandonment of Israel which breaks decades of US policy of protecting Israel at the UN.”
Earlier he said Israel’s prime minister turned to President-elect Donald Trump to help head off the critical U.N. resolution.
Although the U.S. opposes the settlements, it has traditionally used its veto power as a permanent member of the Security Council to block resolutions condemning Israel, saying that disputes between Israel and the Palestinians must be resolved through negotiations. But after eight years of failed peace efforts during the Obama Administration, Israel has expressed concern the outgoing president would take an audacious step to leave his mark on the region. In recent weeks, the White House had been especially secretive about its deliberations.
You will remember Netanyahu addressed the UN on their chronic dishonest treatment of Israel TO THEIR FACES in New York… making Obama look like Iran’s Patsy while standing on American soil.
Bibi called on Trump for help.
…The Egyptian-sponsored resolution had demanded that Israel halt settlement activities in occupied territories claimed by the Palestinians and declared that existing settlements “have no legal validity.”
But under heavy Israeli pressure, Egypt called off a planned vote in the Security Council hours before it was to take place.
…On Friday, Egypt said its president had received a call from Trump in which they both agreed to give the incoming U.S. administration a chance to try and resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The call came hours after Egypt indefinitely postponed the U.N. vote.
A statement from the Egyptian presidency said the two men spoke by phone early Friday and agreed on “the importance of giving a chance for the new American administration to deal in a comprehensive way with the different aspects of the Palestinian issue with the aim of achieving a comprehensive and a final resolution.” — AP
What happened next?
Choosing not to veto, Obama lets anti-settlement resolution pass at UN Security CouncilIn dramatic departure from eight years of policy, US abstains, enabling 14-0 vote; Israel accuses Obama, Kerry of abandoning it; Palestinians hail ‘day of victory’
Resolution 2334 was approved with 14 member states voting in favor, none voting against and one abstention — the United States. The passage of the resolution was met with applause in the packed chamber.
…The text also calls on all states “to distinguish, in their relevant dealings, between the territory of the State of Israel and the territories occupied since 1967” — language that Israel fears will lead to a surge in boycott and sanctions efforts, and that an Israeli official warned would provide “a tailwind for terror.”
Israeli minister Yuval Steinitz, speaking after the vote, said the US had “abandoned Israel, its only ally in the Middle East” and said its behavior was not that of a friend.
The Palestinian Authority hailed “a day of victory.” —Times Of Israel
Obama… Fundamentally Transforming America. One blunder at a time.
Among all the OTHER things that will vanish like a bad dream when Obama slinks out of the White House? You can add this:
No more Presidential Antagonism to Israel.
As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.
