Last night outgoing President Barack Obama admitted he made the call to abstain from vetoing the anti-Israel UN resolution.
President Obama Finally Makes a Big Admission
President Barack Obama told “60 Minutes” that he ordered an abstention from a vote on a U.N. Security council resolution condemning Israeli settlements, allowing the resolution to pass, and that doing so didn’t fray relations between the two countries.
The move caused enormous problems between the United States and Israel, an idea Obama fosse aside while speaking to Steve Kroft in an interview that aired Sunday reports Reuters.
“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.
With his usual sly approach, he put the blame on Netanyahu for his own victimization. He wants us to believe he didn’t throw Israel under the bus.
“And despite all the noise and hullabaloo, military cooperation, intelligence cooperation, all of that has continued,” he said. “We have defended them consistently in every imaginable way. But I also believe that both for our national interests and Israel’s national interests that allowing an ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians that could get worse and worse over time is a problem. And that settlements contribute. They’re not the sole reason for it, but they’re a contributing factor to the inability to solve that problem.”
He did Israel a favor!
It doesn’t matter that he abandoned Israel in his mind because we provide military and financial support.
You can listen to the some of his other claims. He is the president who just won’t go away. Someone, please, pack his bags!
John Kerry is accused of actually colluding with the terrorist Palestinian Authority to form the resolution. There are efforts now to defund the UN.
