After the Obama administration’s on-again, off-again record when it comes to vetoing anti-Israel U.N. settlements, on Friday the United States “abstained from voting on a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a halt to Israeli construction in the West Bank and eastern sections of Jerusalem,” ultimately allowing the destructive measure to go through.
It was the ultimate diss of Israel by the Obama administration.
Fourteen member states voted in favor of the resolution; none voted against, and the U.S. abstained.
An Israeli official revealed the terrible truth in a memo:
“President Obama and Secretary Kerry are behind this shameful move against Israel at the UN. The US administration secretly cooked up with the Palestinians an extreme anti Israeli resolution behind Israel’s back which would be a tailwind for terror and boycotts and effectively make the Western Wall occupied Palestinian territory. President Obama could declare his willingness to veto this resolution in an instant but instead is pushing it. This is an abandonment of Israel which breaks decades of US policy of protecting Israel at the UN and undermines the prospects of working with the next administration of advancing peace.”
This is absolutely despicable behavior coming from this administration — and it lends major credence as to why pro-Israel Donald Trump is currently the president-elect.
