Well, sadly it happened. President Obama has left office with a terrible betrayal of Israel.
The United States failed to veto a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Israel for the settlements built over the 1949 armistice line. President Obama instructed the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. to abstain. The resolution was passed 14-0, a shocking indictment of the nations currently making up the Security Council, including Britain and France.
This resolution by the U.N. contradicts its own 1947 partition plan. Why? Because the original plan did not cede East Jerusalem to a future Palestinian state.
Some commentators have noted that this U.N. resolution makes illegal all Jewish residences and institutions on the other side of the line. Wow! That would include all the Jewish owned locations from before the 1948 war in those areas.
Now I am not claiming that former President Obama is anti-Semitic, but that there is an anti-Semitic spirit behind all this.
When you think of Northern Cyprus, Tibet, and so many other examples of real occupation, it is amazing. And Russia and China voted for this resolution when they really are occupiers! What is wrong with this picture? What hypocrisy! Then think of the disasters and genocide in the nations like Syria. Consider North Korea and so many other tyrannies, but the U. N. concentrates far more attention on what is a much lesser problem.
This is more than imbalance. The scale is broken.
