Obama’s onslaught against Israel is the natural endpoint of a policy he has consistently followed since he first entered the White House.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fires back at US Secretary of State John Kerry
This is a full transcript of Secretary Kerry’s speech today on imposing a two-state solution on Israel. My comments are interlineated in bold-italics.
Obama is not leading the war against Israel at the Security Council simply to advance the PLO’s war for the annihilation of Israel. He is acting in this manner to undermine the legitimacy of American power.
This betrayal won’t cause Israel to surrender its rights or its security and it may well encourage President-elect Trump to take actions to retaliate against the UN and the Palestinians in order to restore some balance.
The UN Security Council passed Resolution 2334 with a vote of 14 in favor and one abstention – the US.
The U.S. could enter into a treaty with Israel to make clear that neither recognizes the validity of the UN Resolution.
The UN has devolved into a corrupt, anti-democratic, anti-Semitic den of thieves, where a “cartel of Bronze Age backward” nations regularly gets resolutions passed to attack the only democratic, modern state in the Middle East while ignoring genocide, despotism, slavery, and ethnic and religious persecutions that take place in their own lands.
After failing for eight years to get the Palestinians to come to the negotiating table, a lame duck President Barack Obama decided to punish Israel by allowing the United Nations Security Council to essentially declare Israel a criminal state.
As President Obama recently betrayed Israel at the UN in a marked departure from conventional US foreign policy, now appears a fitting time to highlight why Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory are both legitimate and legal.
