Opinion: Obama’s Anti-Israel Agenda
The administration recently told Arab governments Washington will support a U.N. Security Council resolution that stipulates the world body “does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity.” The move is almost unprecedented. America has almost never publicly criticized Israel – our best friend in the Middle East and the region’s only genuine Western-style democracy – at the U.N. The reason: The organization is dominated by anti-Semitic, anti-American dictatorships obsessed with condemning the Jewish state. Israel is lambasted constantly while the rampant human rights abuses of other countries – especially Arab regimes, Russia and China – are barely noticed. The United States has opposed this double standard – until now.
