As I mentioned here and here, the UN was to vote Friday on a Fakestinian resolution to outlaw Israeli ‘activity’ in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria (a.k.a. the West Bank).
For the first time in U.S. – Israel relations, Israel actually had to hold Her breath to see how Obama would vote. At the last second, Obama’s mouthpiece at the UN, Susan Rice, cast the single veto (14-1), which is all that is required for a UN Security Council resolution to fail. But, as U.S. ambassador and long time fierce opponent of Israel, Susan Rice made perfectly clear, the U.S. did so “regrettably”.
She and Hillary Clinton then spent the rest of the day making sure that the world knew that even though they voted against the resolution, they hated Israel as much as the Muslims do, and that they agreed fully with the spirit of the condemnation. Here is Susan Rice on the floor of the UN:
USUN (h/t Weasel Zippers)
Our opposition to the resolution before this Council today should therefore not be misunderstood to mean we support settlement activity. On the contrary, we reject in the strongest terms the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity. For more than four decades, Israeli settlement activity in territories occupied in 1967 has undermined Israel’s security and corroded hopes for peace and stability in the region. Continued settlement activity violates Israel’s international commitments, devastates trust between the parties, and threatens the prospects for peace.
This is outrageous on so many levels. No mention of Arab intransigence. Israel has violated no such commitments. And it is a bald faced lie that Judea and Samaria “undermined Israel’s security”. Security is the issue. Furthermore, Judea and Samaria have nothing to do with peace and stability in the region, as events all over the Middle East right now clearly proves!
Hillary Rotten Clinton was no better. Here’s what the old Leftist hag had to say:
I'm an old Liberal hag and I hate Israel.
ABC News - In an exclusive interview with “This Week” anchor Christiane Amanpour taped on Friday afternoon, Clinton said, “I think it is absolutely clear to say, number one, that it’s been American policy for many years that settlements were illegitimate and it is the continuing goal and highest priority of the Obama administration to keep working toward a two-state solution with both Israelis and Palestinians.”
The other nations on the UNSC that voted for the eventual destruction of Israel were: China, France, Russia and The United Kingdom as permanent members, plus the current lineup of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, Columbia, Gabon, Germany, India, Lebanon, Nigeria, Portugal and South Africa.
The other nations on the UNSC that voted to punish Israel for being in the right were: China, France, Russia and The United Kingdom as permanent members, plus the current lineup of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, Columbia, Gabon, Germany, India, Lebanon, Nigeria, Portugal and South Africa.
India and Columbia, shame on you! You ought to know better.
Am Yisrael Chai
UK, France, Germany – you just can’t get over the fact that Jews will continue to flourish despite your every effort for the past 1500 years to destroy them.
Israel is thriving and that makes you sick. Six-million Jews now live in Israel, and Israel is kicking your ass in every field while you’re stuck with millions of fanatical Muslims on welfare who hate your guts and are plotting every day to take over your countries. How’s that for irony, creeps.
As for Russia, China, South Africa and the rest of you garbage countries, no one ever hopes for anything decent to come out of your stinking countries.
Cutting to the chase, clearly neither Obama, nor Hillary Clinton believe a Jew has a right to live in their Biblical homeland, which is exactly what Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem are. If you read the Bible, nearly everything that takes place is in this part of Israel.
As historian Barbara Tuchman once wrote, Israel is “the only nation in the world that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, and with the same religion and same language as it did 3,000 years ago.”
No other nation has ever existed in Israel but the Jewish nation. Jerusalem has been the capital of no other country than Israel. No UN resolution will ever change that. The oldest deed in the world is written in the Bible, and it says that Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem belong to the Jews, and nothing you ever do or say will change G-d’s mind. Deal with it, losers.
Yid with Lid sums up Obama’s latest expression of his famed “smart policy” this way:
In one passive-aggressive stroke he angered the Arab world and increased the level of mistrust felt by the supporters of Israel. After playing with this resolution for a week, the US finally (and barely) voted no. I shudder to think what that vote would have been if Obama’s approval ratings were higher or if it occurred during a (God forbid) second Barack Obama administration. In the safety of a second administration, Barack Obama’s passive-aggressive treatment of Israel will be simply aggressive.
Israel is dealing with threats on every border, Iranian warships coming through the Suez, call from Arab leaders to Fakestinians to revolt, terrorists flooding into Gaza from Egypt – and Obama and Hillary want to further isolate America’s #1 ally. It’s not just stupid, it’s dastardly and nefarious.
So tell us Hillary, can we be expecting a Security Council resolution on behalf of all the corpses rotting on the streets of Iran? Bahrain? Libya? Tunisia? Yemen? or Algeria?
