Obama … so good at bringing people together… to oppose him.
Obama doesn’t much like Israel.
He poured cash into Israel in an attempt to keep Bibi from being elected.
(And foreign influence of an election… isn’t that basically his complaint about Putin?)
He is said to have orchestrated the UN resolution against Israel. And there is another international meeting on the topic discussing Israel and Palestine without them present… conveniently BEFORE Trump takes office.
There’s one little problem.
Congress does NOT share his vendetta against Israel.
In fact, with Israel the only Democratic State in the region elected officials on BOTH sides of the aisle tend to support Israel. They understand the facts laid out in this clip:
That’s why they gave Obama a collective crotch-kick.
In a strong bipartisan rebuke of the Obama administration, on Thursday the House overwhelmingly voted to condemn the United Nations’ resolution targeting Israel for its settlement construction. The House resolution to rebuke the U.N passed 342-80, sending a clear bipartisan message to the Obama State Department that it was egregiously out of step with Congress in its betrayal of Israel.
The House measure condemned the U.N. resolution as “one-sided and anti-Israel, reversing decades of bipartisan agreement.” The anti-Israel resolution “undermines the prospect of Israelis and Palestinians resuming productive, direct negotiations” and “contributes to the politically motivated acts of boycott, divestment from, and sanctions against Israel and represents a concerted effort to extract concessions from Israel outside of direct negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians, which must be actively rejected.”
Any attempt to “impose an agreement” on Israel about a Palestinian State, warns the House measure, “will set back the cause of peace, harm the security of Israel, run counter to the enduring bipartisan consensus on strengthening the United States-Israel relationship, and weaken support for such organizations.”
The only “durable and sustainable peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians will come only through direct bilateral negotiations between the parties resulting in a Jewish, democratic state living side-by-side next to a demilitarized Palestinian state in peace and security,” it states. Any future UN resolutions that are “one-sided and anti-Israel,” should be vetoed by the United States, and the UN should repeal or fundamentally amend the resolution. –DailyWire
Obama’s vison for Israel will not only fail… it will be opposed by people on both sides of the aisle.
Obama has done the impossible.
He got Democrats and Republicans to agree. What did they agree on?
… that he was wrong.
