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.


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…
