Israel has “clear evidence” the Obama administration orchestrated the passage of the anti-Israeli settlement UN Security Council resolution on Friday, the Jewish state’s DC envoy told CNN on Monday.

“We will present that evidence to the new [Trump] administration through the appropriate channels,” Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer said in an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon. “And if they want to share it with the American people, they’re welcome to.”

Talking about what transpired on Friday — when the US abstained from voting on the resolution that was approved by a 14-0 margin — Dermer said, “It’s an old story that the United Nations gangs up against Israel. What is new is that the United States did not stand up and oppose that gang up. And what is outrageous is that the United States was actually behind that gang up.”

    We can explain Obama supporting a UN resolution that contradicts Oslo, Madrid, Camp David, Annapolis and facts on the ground. We can imagine Obama out to get Bibbi for opposing the Iran deal. BUT how do we explain countries with no vendetta against Bibbi damaging their own integrity by supporting such a childish resolutions? The awesome and great Day of Judgment approaches and those countries who think they can stop Divine Providence and sabotage the fulfilment of G-d’s Word of the Rebuilding of Jerusalem andRebuilding of Israel, will be judged and found wanting.

    Of course! That ‘s Obama’s specialty!!!!!!!
    The failed president, is a rabid community organizer.

    Jews, thank you for your support and your loyalty, now GO TO HELL

    – Barack H Obama

  • The truth is, the entire Democratic Party betrayed the Jewish State of Israel.

    For any voter who cares about Israel, for many reasons, it is now impossible to trust the Democratic Party.

    If the Republican Party succeeds in healing the harm that the Democrats have done to Jews in the Jewish aboriginal Land, of Judea and Samaria, especially the Temple Mount in Jerusalem,

    then I will switch to fully supporting Republican candidates only.
