BETRAYAL: Obama Stabs US in Back By Failing to Veto UN Resolution Against Israeli Settlements

16

The U.N. Security Council this afternoon passed a resolution demanding Israel cease Jewish settlement activity on Palestinian territory in a unanimous vote that passed with the United States abstaining rather than using its veto as it has reliably done in the past.

The resolution said settlements are threatening the viability of the two-state solution, and urged Israelis and Palestinians to return to negotiations that lead to two independent nations.

This marked the first time in more than 36 years that the Security Council passed a resolution critical of settlements.

The United States’ abstention Friday reflected mounting frustration in the Obama administration over settlement growth that the United States considers an obstacle to peace.

The resolution came one day after a scheduled vote was postponed when the sponsor, Egypt, withdrew it after the Egyptian president spoke by phone with President-elect Donald Trump. Friday’s resolution was sponsored by New Zealand, Malaysia, Venezuela and Senegal.

Shortly before the vote, several U.S. senators said that if it passed they would introduce legislation to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations and to any states that voted in favor of it.

  1. Despite President Obama’s seethingly contemptuous attitude toward Prime Minister Netanyahu and his frequent morally superior lectures to Israel, he had the saving grace of exercising the American veto of the frequent anti-Israel resolutions before the anti-Semitic U.N.
    Well, no longer.

    The U.S’s abstention is exactly the same as a “Yes” vote for the resolution. Obama is an evil man who has endangered millions of Jews with his disastrous Iran deal (that he pointedly pushed over Israel’s frantic pleas) and now he’s thrown Israel to the wolves of the anti-Semitic U.N. He has now firmly assumed his place as the most damaging U.S. president to Israel in history.

    Yesh din v’yesh dayan.

  2. So we see that the stinking prez stuck it to the Jews at the last minute. So Hussein has shown his true Anti Semitic colors.

  3. A few additional thoughts:
    -Nice job of standing up for Israel, “Schumer the Shomer”. What a useless individual.
    -70 years after the Democratic FDR administration stood by and allowed Europe’s Jews to be slaughtered by the Nazis ym”s, the Democratic Obama administration stands by and allows the anti-Semitic U.N. to issue this damaging condemnation.
    -Which President but Obama doesn’t consider Jerusalem to be part of Israel? Which President but Obama considers the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem “Occupied territory” that belongs to Palestinians?
    -This is exactly what many Israel supporters feared and expected from this President once the election was over. Unfortunately, they were right.

  4. What were you expecting he is trying to do as much damage as he can before he leaves the US government and Israel as possible. Remember he still have a pen and he still has a phone, and the UN rep. as just as useless for she also has no conscience and she does what she is told to do without after thought that she and he will have to live in one of the countries that they have to live in, unless they plan on leaving???

  5. I don’t understand. Even if the US would of vetoed the resolution, it still would of passed, no?
    Careful with the negative comments about our first black President. The Thought Police are vigorously monitoring all websites and are actively seeking hate crime arrests.

    • Not true. The U.S. is a permanent member of the UN Security Council. The U.S. has a veto power that can throw this resolution out. That’s what the policy of the U.S. has always been. That’s why such a resolution hasn’t passed in 36 years! Now this pathetic president decided to show his true colors when he has no worries of reelection. This worthless organization called the UN is such a failure. They failed to do anything when Assad a ruthless dictator killed over 250,000 civilians (not that I’m a fan of of the syrians, but just the thought that the principle that it was founded on – to stop a dictator from committing mass genocide, it still failed in, is enough to shut down this organization forever). This body is just an outlet for anti-semitic countries to spew forth their hate for everyone to see. I hope it’s clear to you that this president does not have Israel in mind, and I am counting down the days until he leaves the white house forever.

  6. This year we are celebrating Purim and Chanukah at the same time, The Hebrews went to a giant party that the king held and ate and drank and was satiated then the decreed. Both had wars both decreed the Hebrews were to die, but the joke was on them they disappeared and the latest king will also disappear and we will win, but at what price. As before the Hebrews were enthralled for the king ask them to a party, too bad then they did not know the decreed, but this time they knew and they still went.

  7. and when he leaves he takes with him all sorts of state secrets. ‘just you watch, henry higgens’. he will sell to the highest bidder
