American betrayal of Israel

New Zealand are “useful idiots”. Well, Murray is at least

UN Security Council Resolution 2334 will inflict serious and enduring damage to the State of Israel and to the Jewish people. It brands Israel, the nation state of the Jewish people, a ?flagrant? violator of international law, fueling the movement to isolate it and turn it into a pariah among nations. As such it will promote the growing anti-Semitism around the world. It may even invite or be used to justify horrific terrorist attacks of the sort we have seen in Jerusalem this month. But those are not the primary reasons the President should have vetoed it.

The United States should not surprise (some have used the term ?ambush?) a close ally and friend in an important forum like the UN Security Council, as it seems clear was done in this case. But that also is not the main reason he should have vetoed it.

The American president should not base critical foreign policy decisions on personal animus, as it appears he did here. But that too is not the most important reason he should have vetoed it.

The decision was not only highly inappropriate for a ?lame duck? president, designed to make it more difficult for the incoming administration to pursue its foreign-policy goals, but there can be little doubt that he knew his action was antithetical to the bipartisan views of the majority of the American people. In other words, his action was deeply undemocratic. But even that, although more than cause enough, is not the main reason he should have vetoed it.

McCully and Obama’s actions put thirty thousand Palestinian jobs at risk

I received this e-mail yesterday from Jay Sekulow the ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) Chief Counsel.

Juana,

President Obama’s diplomatic war on Israel is expanding.

First, he betrayed our greatest ally in the Middle East at the United Nations (U.N.). Second, Secretary Kerry bullied and berated Israel on the public stage. Now, the U.N. has created a blacklist of anyone who does business in Judea, Samaria, and East Jerusalem.

This blacklist of Jews and people who support Israel will be used by the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement to further delegitimize Israel.

Now, President Obama may be planning a final betrayal ? unilaterally recognizing a Palestinian state led by a government that funds terrorism…

I did a little research and it turns out that like previous actions by the BDS the people most affected by the blacklist will be the very people that the activists claim to support, the Palestinians.
