As Israel fights for her very survival, President Obama has made a point of showing disdain , if not outright contempt, for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the state of Israel, quietly supporting whatever anti-Semitic resolutions the UN makes.
Although Obama may not always overtly display his dislike for the Jewish state, he at every turn, has tried to prevent them from doing anything that would cause the slightest inconvenience for his middle eastern friends.
After the latest UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel, Obama refused to veto the measure, choosing to abstain from voting this time. But you’ll never guess who is calling him out on this abstention!

The Obama administration has sparked a revolt among Democratic senators by allowing the United Nations Security Council to condemn Israel.
The United States abstained in Friday’s vote. However, under Security Council rules, the U.S. could have vetoed the resolution, which would have blocked it.
Incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., voiced his outrage and said it was “extremely frustrating, disappointing and confounding that the Administration has failed to veto this resolution.”
“Whatever one’s views are on settlements, the UN is the wrong forum to settle these issues. The UN has been a fervently anti-Israel body since the days of ‘Zionism is racism’ and, unfortunately, that fervor has never diminished,” Schumer said in a statement.
“Knowing this, past Administrations – both Democrat and Republican – have protected Israel from the vagaries of this biased institution. Unfortunately, this Administration has not followed in that path and its actions will move us further from peace in the Middle East,” said Schumer, who is a strong supporter of Israel and who also criticized the Obama administration’s Iranian nuclear deal as a threat to Israel.
But Schumer wasn’t the only Democrat who extended support for Israel: “I urge the Obama administration to veto the United Nations resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building,” said Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. “I support two-party negotiations to reach agreement on any settlement issues, and this U.N. resolution is not the way to pursue peace between the Palestinian Authority and the state of Israel.” Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said he was “dismayed that the Administration departed from decades of U.S. policy by not vetoing the UN resolution regarding Israeli settlements.”
President Obama hides his pettiness fairly well when he wants to but he can also show it pretty well when he intends to make a point.
I’m still here and I’m still in charge until January the 20th so live with it!
