Reader comment on: Obama's Betrayal of Israel
Submitted by Rob Manzoni, Jan 13, 2017 13:01
"...President Obama's decision not to use the US veto in the UN Security Council..."
This first sentence perpetuates the lie...
Obama didn't merely "decide" not to VETO this vote - He WROTE the resolution, initiated the whole process, drawing up-, pushing and promoting Resolution 2334, as if it originated elsewhere.
His original plan was for Egypt to introduce the resolution, who knew (from the US government) that Obama had instructed the US rep at the UN NOT to use the standard veto.
When Egypt was persuaded by Trump to hold off, Obama engineered other countries to introduce it, ensuring that his parting shot to Netanyahu would be made.
This was not only "un-presidential" - it was a patently vindictive move, designed to compromise Israel and Trump.
Such action by a sitting, outgoing president - a clear breach of ethics and of decency; and together with his many anti-West actions (Iran, Cuba, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sanctuary cities, Islamist empowerment, refusal to uphold US laws) are grounds for indictment and impeachment.
