During the very last month of his presidency, Barack Obama has decided to launch an all-out attack on Israel. On Friday, Barack Obama’s decision to allow UN Security Council resolution 2334 to pass without a veto was the greatest betrayal of Israel in modern American history, and now there are reports that the Obama administration is planning to introduce another resolution that would officially recognize a Palestinian state. Throughout his eight years in the White House, many have accused Obama of being the most anti-Israel president in our history, and now he is proving them right. Obama has also been accused of harboring sympathies for the agenda of the radical Islamic world, and at this point it is hard to argue that he doesn’t. Everyone always knew that Obama greatly disliked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but the way that Obama is currently behaving goes way beyond just being vindictive.
If it wasn’t for the election of Donald Trump, there would be little hope of salvaging U.S.-Israeli relations at this point. On Twitter, Newt Gingrich actually used the phrase “waging war” to describe what Obama is doing to Israel…
Meanwhile, back in the US, Newt Gingrich continued his outspoken ways, and slammed President Obama for not vetoing the resolution, likening the move to a “war” against the key ally in the Middle East. “Why is the Obama team waging war against Israel? Why are they taking steps to isolate and then kill a democracy and an ally?” Gingrich tweeted.
“President-elect Trump must prepare a comprehensive offensive for Jan 29 to undo the damage to Israel the Obama team is inflicting.”
“Congress should pass resolutions January 3-4 condemning Obama attacks on Israel and demanding he not participate in French or (U.N. Security Council) attacks,” Gingrich, a key Trump ally, wrote online.
I can’t help but agree with Gingrich on this point. Barack Obama definitely seems to be acting out a secret vendetta against Israel during the last few days of his presidency.
And there seems to be little doubt that it was Obama that was the driving force behind the passage of UN Security Council resolution 2334. In fact, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that the information that his government has been given has led him to the conclusion that Obama “initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed”…
Netanyahu escalated his criticism of the U.S. for abstaining, even accusing President Obama of orchestrating the resolution himself.
“From the information that we have, we have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed,” Netanyahu said in Hebrew.
According to the Times of Israel, Israel’s ambassador plans to pass this evidence along to Donald Trump once he takes office…
Israel’s ambassador to the United States said Tuesday that the country will present President-elect Donald Trump with “evidence” that the Obama administration orchestrated an anti-settlement resolution at the United Nations Security Council on Friday.
Now that resolution 2334 has passed and there hasn’t been much of a global uproar, the Obama administration has been emboldened to go for broke and push for another resolution which would grant full UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state. In the article that I just posted on The Economic Collapse Blog, I explained that this resolution would use the 1967 ceasefire lines as the basis for the borders between the Israelis and the Palestinians, it would include “land-swaps” so that most Israeli settlers in the West Bank could stay where they currently are, and it would officially designate East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital.
Needless to say, the events of the past several days have absolutely infuriated Netanyahu and the rest of his government. On Sunday, Netanyahu ordered the Israeli Foreign Ministry to suspend all ties with 12 of the nations that voted in favor of resolution 2334…
Activities involving the embassies of Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, Ukraine, Angola, Egypt, Uruguay, Spain, Senegal and New Zealand will be suspended, and the ambassadors of those countries will not be received at Israel’s Foreign Ministry, an official said.
