Israel accuses Obama of anti-Israeli 'shameful move' at UN

An Israeli official on Friday accused President Barack Obama of colluding with the Palestinians in a "shameful move against Israel at the U.N." after learning the White House did not intend to veto a Security Council resolution condemning settlement construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem the day before.

"President Obama and Secretary Kerry are behind this shameful move against Israel at the U.N.," the official said. "The U.S administration secretly cooked up with the Palestinians an extreme anti-Israeli resolution behind Israel's back which would be a tail wind for terror and boycotts and effectively make the Western Wall occupied Palestinian territory," he said calling it "an abandonment of Israel which breaks decades of US policy of protecting Israel at the UN."

Earlier he said Israel's prime minister turned to President-elect Donald Trump to help head off the critical U.N. resolution.

Israel knew even before the Egyptian draft resolution that the White House was planning an "ambush" and coordinating it with the Palestinians, said another Israeli official, who requested anonymity to discuss internal diplomatic conversations.

And they are correct. Obama and Kerry both are responsible for this shameful move. I know one of them is a Muslim so I understand his motivation but I'm not sure why the other guy participated as he did.

I just hope God doesn't hold it against the entire US because of Obama. Let the punishment fall on the right two people. I know I don't agree with this and I know many others who also do not agree with this. Much like the last eight years worth of policy that has come out. So, so glad it is almost over. It can't come soon enough. How much more can he muck up before he goes?

Our military has been weakened under Obama. Israel will take out any bomb heading their way.
