Barack Hussein Obama made a horrifying move against Israel last week when he allowed the United Nations to condemn the West Bank settlers in a controversial vote. Now, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is firing back at Obama in a big way.
Conservative Tribune reported that Netanyahu took to Facebook to point out the hypocrisy that epitomizes Obama.
“2008, Presidential candidate Barack Obama at the Western Wall,” he wrote. “2016, U.N. calls the Western Wall ‘occupied Palestinian territory.’ Seriously?”
This came days after Netanyahu spoke out on Sunday to claim that he has “ironclad” information tying Obama directly to the anti-Israel resolution passed last week by the United Nations Security Council. David Keyes, Netanyahu’s spokesman, said that Israel also has evidence Obama helped “craft” the resolution.
“Well, we have ironclad information, frankly, that the Obama administration really helped push this resolution and helped craft it, from sources internationally and from sources in the Arab world, and it’s really an unfortunate legacy, kind of last minute jab at Israel that actually distances peace,” Keyes said, according to The Blaze.
“We have full confidence that the information is accurate,” he added. “This resolution is shameful and actually pushes peace farther away.”
During a later interview with FoxNews, Keyes explained that an “abandonment” of Israel by the Obama administration is currently playing out for the world to see.
“I think what we’re seeing is an abandonment of Israel, and an abandonment of a long-standing American policy,” he said.
“The White House already has acknowledged President Obama made the decision for U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power to abstain,” Keyes added. “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.”
