Israel didn’t stand a chance against the United Nations gang that passed a dangerous resolution against the long-time United States ally.
What’s worse is high-ranking US officials reportedly worked behind the scenes to push nations into voting for the anti-Israel resolution. It’s a devastating blow to US-Israel relations.
News has surfaced that the real gang leader was none other than President Barack Obama’s right-hand man, Vice President Joe Biden. Biden and the boys stabbed Israel in the back with a resolution that turns the world against Israel.
Biden was exposed in the sordid affair, but towed the Obama line of denial, as reported in The Washington Free Beacon.
Biden is denying accusations he personally lobbied foreign leaders to vote in favor of a hotly contested anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations last week that has brought U.S.-Israel relations to an all-time low, according to sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.
Insiders said Biden spoke by phone with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to ask that his country vote in favor of the resolution, which was passed by the U.N. Security Council last week. The United States, in a reversal of longstanding policy, did not exercise its veto power to kill the measure.
Bipartisan voices in Congress and from the Jewish world were outraged by the Obama administration’s calculated effort that allowed the resolution to pass.
Sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon described Biden as personally lobbying in favor of the resolution, which agrees with claims by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that “the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed.”
“Biden lobbied Ukraine and of course administration officials are too cowardly to admit it,” said a senior pro-Israel official who is working with Congressional offices on responding to the resolution. “With everything that’s going on involving Russia, Iran, and Syria, this is how the Obama administration choose to spend its precious diplomatic capital. They decided to twist arms and trade favors for a resolution that cuts off Jews from Jerusalem, a city that is Israel’s capital city according to American law.”
Israeli official have also claimed that Biden spoke by telephone with Poroshenko to convince him to vote in favor of the resolution, which Ukraine had been hesitant to do.
Pro-Israel US voices quickly attacked Obama’s cowardly act.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) called for the United States to fully cut funding to the United Nations until the resolution is reversed.
Incoming President Donald Trump also signaled his outrage, stating on Twitter that “things will be different” when he takes office.
“The Obama administration has long flirted with international efforts to delegitimize Israel, so what happened today isn’t really surprising,” one senior congressional aide told the Washington Free Beacon following the vote.
“The good news is that a Republican government will enable us to roll back the Obama administration’s hostile anti-Israel policies,” the source said.
“President-elect Trump has already signaled a level of support for Israel that we haven’t seen in eight years. Now we have a real opportunity to hold Iran accountable, fight BDS, and do everything possible to ensure Israel’s qualitative military edge in the region.”
Organizations typically in lockstep with the administration’s agenda also lashed out at Obama.
“We are outraged over the U.S. failure to veto this biased and unconstructive UNSC resolution on Israel,” Jonathan A. Greenblatt, a former Obama administration official who now heads the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement. “This resolution will do little to renew peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinians. It will only encourage further Palestinian intransigence vis-à-vis direct negotiations with Israel in favor of unilateral, one-sided initiatives.”
Unfortunately, the only path to correct these horrible acts against Israel is to wait out Obama. Once he leaves Republicans can work to reverse course on his anti-Israel, anti-American decisions.
Obama’s minions will also be gone from government and connections to foreign countries.
It’s a mess Trump will have to tackle among the many issues he’ll face from day one of his presidency.
