Sarah Palin slammed the Obama administration on Thursday for its treatment of Israel, calling it “junior high diplomacy” in a post on Facebook.
“What is this – junior high school diplomacy? What next – using Facebook to ‘unfriend’ Israel? Isn’t it about time for the Obama administration to remember who our friends are and to treat them like friends?” Palin wrote on her Facebook page.
Palin criticized both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry. The latter, she wrote, put Israel in “an untenable position” over the Iranian nuclear deal reached in November.
“Israel is once again feeling the brunt of the Obama administration’s enemy centric foreign policy,” wrote the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee.
Palin also hit Kerry for recent comments he made amid recent negotiations in the Mideast.
“You see for Israel there’s an increasing de-legitimization campaign that has been building up,” Kerry said in Germany earlier this week. “People are very sensitive to it. There are talk of boycotts and other kinds of things.”
Wrote Palin: “The Israelis are quite appropriately upset about the treatment they’ve received from Kerry.”
