Friday, President Obama backstabbed the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise, however, to those who have followed him for eight years.
After initially backing down on Thursday, the United Nations voted to pass a resolution Friday condemning Israel. The resolution called out Israel for settlements in East Jerusalem and the “occupied territory.” In the past, such resolutions were vetoed by the United States in a show of solidarity. With his term in office nearly over, however, President Obama is showing his true colors.
It is the first time in 36 years that the United States refused to support Israel at the United Nations.
Obama may have felt slighted over statements by President Elect Donald Trump the day before. On Thursday, Trump called on Obama to veto the resolution and show support for Israel. While the resolution was withdrawn after Trump’s statement, many wonder if the push to reinstate the resolution vote on Friday was Obama’s idea. President Obama has made it clear that he has a thin skin. He may have been looking to push back against Trump’s aggressiveness. And that meant throwing Israel under the bus.
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.”
