After the United Nations’ betrayal last week, throwing Israel to the wolves yet again in a resolution punishing the Jewish state
Right after the United Nations’ betrayal last week, throwing Israel to the wolves yet once again in a resolution condemning the Jewish state, a lot of conservatives were furious.
They were even more angry that the Obama administration did absolutely nothing about it, instead staying away from voting on the agreement they could have vetoed.
Sen. Ted Cruz, the one-time Republican presidential challenger and a strong defender of Israel, was one of the most angry voices in Washington.
In a scathing statement, the Texas Republican reprehended the Obama administration and called on the incoming Trump administration to defund the U.N. for its actions over Israel.
“” For eight long years, the Obama administration has worked methodically to weaken the nation of Israel,” Cruz wrote. “They proactively worked to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu, and illegally used U.S. taxpayer money to do so.
Never has there been a more anti-Israel administration, and today’s United Nations vote is the conclusion of their systemic agenda to compromise Israel and strengthen its enemies.”
Cruz recommended several ways to improve the damage caused by the resolution, including totally revoking American funds from the U.N..
“” I also emphatically second the call of my colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham that the consequences of this disgraceful U.N. resolution should be severe,” Cruz wrote.
” I look forward to working with Sen. Graham, and with the incoming administration of President-elect Trump, to significantly reduce or even eliminate U.S. funding of the United Nations, and also to seriously reconsider financial support for the nations that supported this resolution.
For those who have put your name to this despicable attack on Israel, you did so with full knowledge of the consequences of your actions.”
He also had extreme words for the Obama administration.
” And for those who acquiesced or facilitated the United Nations resolution– specifically President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Ambassador Power– history will record your abiding and disgraceful legacy weakening our friend and ally Israel,” Cruz wrote.
” I am hopeful at least some Senate Democrats will choose to repudiate your anti-Israel actions, and I am grateful that the new administration has committed to once again restoring our strong and unequivocal support for the nation of Israel.”
Provided that the United Nations has turned into a colony of anti-Israeli sentiment (to say nothing of it its anti-American prejudice), withdrawing American funding from it sounds like one of the best ideas we could picture.
Of course, liberals will go mad … which means it’s pretty much the perfect strategy.
What do you think about Obama’s betreyal ?
