Israel accuses Obama administration of helping craft, push UN censure

December 26, 2016

Israel’s government publicly accused the Obama administration Sunday of helping create and push the recently passed United Nations resolution condemning settlement activity, with a top official telling Fox News they have “ironclad information” on the U.S. government’s involvement.

“We have rather ironclad information from sources in both the Arab world and internationally that this was a deliberate push by the United States and in fact they helped create the resolution in the first place,” David Keyes, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said on Fox News’ “America’s News HQ.”

The accusation marks a new escalation in the Netanyahu government’s response to the U.N. Security Council vote on Friday. The resolution passed thanks to a U.S. abstention, a decision Netanyahu has described as a “shameful ambush.”

The White House already has acknowledged President Obama made the decision for U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power to abstain. Unclear was how involved the Obama administration was in crafting and pushing the resolution itself – which initially was put forward by Egypt, and then pursued by New Zealand, Malaysia, Senegal and Venezuela.

White House spokesman Eric Schultz issued a statement Sunday defending Obama’s support for Israel and stressed that the U.S. did not draft the resolution.

    Obama has been disrespectful to Netanyahu from the getgo. No small wonder he would pull this dastardly act just before he is out of office. He has been itching to do this for 8 long years. Even though he is a Muslim sympathizer and has created havoc in the entire Muslim world. The one and only true friend the US has in the Middle East is Israel and this is a burr in his behind. He hates Israel because of its success and the Arab/Muslim failure. His Arab Spring has cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of Arabs/Muslims and continues to do so. He has turned Lybia into a snake pit. His Secretary of State, Hillary/KILLary Clinton’s cold blooded comment with a smile on her face, about Khadaffi “we came, we saw, HE DIED!” Khadaffi gave up his aspiration for nuclear arms and was a supporter of the US at this stage and Lybia was a controlled nation until Obama’s policy of supporting the insurgents and selling then arms and stinger missiles. Amb. Chris Stevens was instrumental in doing Obama’s bidding and ended up murdered when Obama/Killary decided he was of no more use (supposedly Stevens was a personal friend of Killary but there were many other friends of Killary that ended up dead under mysterious circumstances – Vince Foster for one) besides the other 3 Americans that were left to die because no help was forthcoming. Obama is a bastard, son of a communist whore and her bigamous Muslim husband, raised by communist grandparents and influenced by other communist friends of the family and a devout follower of Saul Alinsky.

    America should get out of that UN cesspool of humanity and tear down that UN building in NYC. Staying in the Fascist/Communist/Muslim dominated UN will be suicide for America.
