Leave it to Barack Obama to give parting shots to Israel on his way out of office. And leave it to Senator Ted Cruz to stand up and fight for our Nation and stand up for our ally, Israel. Thank goodness Obama’s path of destruction for America is coming to an end real soon.
On Friday, Barack Obama, John Kerry and Samantha Power officially stabbed Israel in the back at the UN. In a 14-0 vote on Friday, the UN officially condemned Israel for their settlements on their own land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Obama joined the Islamic jackals by abstaining during the vote. It was the most disgraceful act in 50 years concerning Israel. Ted Cruz nailed the UN and everyone involved in this travesty against our strongest ally, Israel.
H/T I Have The Truth:
Obama should have vetoed this move by this group of communist dictators and Islamic thugs, just as he did in 2011. But it was a parting middle finger salute to Israel as he leaves office. Ted Cruz, Frank Gaffney, Lindsey Graham and many others are now calling for stopping US funding to the UN until this is reversed and if it isn’t, dump the UN. Trump is all in favor of that it would seem and he warned the UN that things were going to change radically come Jan. 20th when he takes office. Amen to that and it’s long overdue.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz put the United Nations on notice Saturday evening, issuing his toughest statement yet in response to Friday’s vote to condemn Israeli settlement building.
In a tweet, the Republican lawmaker said he spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Saturday evening to not only wish him a happy Hanukkah, but also to “assure him of strong support in Congress.”
Spoke w/ Israeli PM @netanyahu tonight to wish him Happy Chanukah & assure him of strong support in Congress. No US $ for UN until reversed.
“No US $ for UN until reversed,” he added. That comment suggests that Cruz has made his mind up since Friday, when he said he looked forward to working with Sen. Lindsey Graham and President-elect Trump “to significantly reduce or even eliminate U.S. funding of the United Nations, and also to seriously reconsider financial support for the nations that supported this resolution.”
In a 14-0 vote on Friday, the U.N. Security Council condemned Israel for settlements in areas of the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The Obama administration abstained on the measure, marking a significant shift of U.S. policy just weeks before Obama completes his second term in the White House.
Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu is beyond furious over this and said Israel will not recognize the resolution.
Netanyahu accused Washington of having a direct hand in the Security Council resolution.
“We have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated its versions and insisted upon its passage,” he said.
“Over decades, American administrations and Israeli governments have disagreed about settlements. But we agreed that the Security Council was not the place to resolve this issue,” Netanyahu said.
“We knew that going there would make negotiations harder and drive peace further away. As I told [U.S. Secretary of State] John Kerry on Thursday: Friends don’t take friends to the Security Council.”
Here’s what Senator Ted Cruz had to say in his rebuke:
“Today’s United Nations vote is the culmination of this administration’s systemic agenda to weaken #Israel and strengthen its enemies.
“Every Obama foreign policy official should be ashamed of today’s UN resolution, and any official who disagrees with or hopes to avoid the anti-Israel legacy of this Administration should resign on principle today.
“And for those who acquiesced or facilitated the UN resolution–especially President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Ambassador Power–history will record your abiding and shameful legacy undermining our friend and ally Israel. I am hopeful at least some Senate Democrats will choose to repudiate your anti-Israel actions, and I am grateful that the new Administration has committed to once again restoring our strong and unequivocal support for the Nation of Israel.
Amen!!! Americans should be very grateful for Senator Cruz as he continues to stand up and fight for America and our nation’s ally, Israel. He’s right on so many levels, including the fact that Obama’s legacy is shameful and will hopefully be all erased real soon after President-elect Donald Trump takes office in January.
BTW, what did Donald Trump have to say about all this? Here’s some of his comments on Twitter:
The big loss yesterday for Israel in the United Nations will make it much harder to negotiate peace.Too bad, but we will get it done anyway!
…and Trump added:
The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!
…and just a reminder:
As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.
Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! We look forward to a very happy New Year!
