Jerusalem mayor blasts Obama, welcomes Trump in video

January 21, 2017

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat slammed outgoing President Barack Obama and praised President-elect Donald Trump in an official video released Thursday.

In the video, Barkat urges Israelis to sign a letter urging Trump to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – a move that Obama suggested Wednesday could be “explosive.”

“My fellow citizens, during the last eight years, the Obama administration has pushed for a settlement-building freeze, has surrendered to the Iranians and radical Islam and abandoned Israel to a hostile U.N. resolution,” Barkat said.

The mayor also urges Israelis to accept Trump as their friend. The video cuts away to Trump addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and vowing to move the embassy to Jerusalem.

Relations between the White House and Israel have grown contentious over the tail end of Obama’s presidency, culminating in an abstention of a U.N. vote that cleared the way for condemnation of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

    Have patience Israel here is the Act already a done deal since 1995 for the U.S. embassy to relocate to Jerusalem. Look for this to happen in May of this year. Hamas and all the Muslims can rant and rave but won’t do them any good. It is over.

    Public Law No: 104-45 (11/08/1995)

    [104th Congress Public Law 45]
    [From the U.S. Government Printing Office]

    [DOCID: f:publ45.104]

    Public Law 104-45
    104th Congress

    An Act

    To provide for the relocation of the United States Embassy in Israel to
    Jerusalem, and for other purposes. <<NOTE: Nov. 8, 1995 – [S. 1322]>>

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
    United States of America in Congress assembled, <<NOTE: Jerusalem
    Embassy Act of 1995. Foreign relations.>>

    Our congress in America is getting a Bill together to move the capital to Jerusalem. The Muslims have nothing to do with the Holy Lands. We know that, Trump knows that, Americans who are educated know that. We also know this was settled by the League of Nations in 1922 with 51 countries saying all was Israels.

    It will be a great sign to all the Muslims, Hamas and Hezbollah that we are not going to be pushed around by them, America has a leader, or threatened by them, that we are now and will be allies to Israel and Obama, their beloved Muslim brother, who hated Christians as much as Jews is gone. Gone and won’t come back.

    A new day and a new way and the UK, Australia and America are joining to form an alliance with Israel and others will come to their senses once Europe has it’s elections and gets the Muslim lovers out of office who have all but destroyed their countries with refugees.

    It just wasn’t Obama and Kerry that stabbed Israel in the back. They had a lot of help. No one is going to want to hear this, especially the American Jewish community. In my opinion, the American Jewish Democrat voters did just as much to help Obama, Kerry and their United Nations friends pull off this stunt. It comes as no surprise to me that I also have not heard a word about it from our Jewish politicians in Congress. Their silence is deafening.

    Until recently, I lived near a Jewish community and have many Jewish friends. In 2008, the Jewish neighborhoods had Obama and other Democrat signs proudly displayed on their front lawns. In Obama’s first term, many of them became disgusted with the way Obama treated Netanyahu and how he tried to throw Israel under the bus. Many Jewish businessmen I know were up in arms about the constant new restrictions imposed by Obama and his Czars that makes it harder for them to do business. They were also appalled by the way Obama seems to be kissing the backsides of Arab countries that hate Israel. Many even suspect that Obama is Anti-Semite. In the second term they were just as upset with the Obama Administration.

    Did that change their minds about voting against Obama or any other Democrats? Not in this lifetime. During the 2012 election I went to those same neighborhoods and saw just as many Obama and other Democrat signs on those same front lawns. They will vote Democrat because they can never bring themselves to vote Republican or any other party. In the 2016 election I saw Hillary and other Democrat signs on those same front lawns. That stunt with the United Nations was the ultimate slap in the face to all Jews world wide.

    Some people can’t even learn the hard way. Many American Jewish voters will vote Democrat because they cannot bring themselves to vote Republican or any other party. Almost seems as if it is a disease. All you American Jewish Democrat voters turned your backs on Israel and gave Obama, Kerry and their United Nations friends, the green light to throw Israel to the sharks. Are you proud you helped stab Israel in the back by voting Democrat? In the end, you Democrat voting Jews will vote yourselves right into another Holocaust and take all of us with you.

      Oh trust me Americans are sick of the American Jews and their love of a party and president who hates the sight of them.

    Obama has done all he could to destroy our friendship with many countries. Along with that he has bowed to the arabs and tried to destroy this nation.
    Today we have left him like taking a good shit and leaving it
