By now you know that the U.S. abstained from a vote that saw the UN condemn Israeli settlements.
Guess who was behind the move? Barack Obama himself!
He just admitted it, Newsmax:
President Barack Obama told “60 Minutes” that he made the call for the U.S. to abstain from a vote on a U.N. Security councilresolution condemning Israeli settlements, allowing the resolution to pass, and that doing so didn’t fray relations between the two countries. The move caused a major fallout between the United States and Israel, a notion Obama demurred while speaking to Steve Kroft in an interview that aired Sunday. “I don’t think it caused a major rupture in relations between the United States and Israel. If you’re saying that [Israeli] Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu got fired up, he’s been fired up repeatedly during the course of my presidency, around the Iran deal and around our consistent objection to settlements. So that part of it wasn’t new,” Obama said in his final interview as president.
This should come as little surprise. Obama hates Israel with a passion.
The most unnerving part is that Israel is America’s only solid ally in the Middle East.
Thanks for nothing, Obama! We’re all thrilled you’re finally out of office.
