That Obama hates Israel should not have taken anyone by surprise, but apparently it did, including American liberal Jews who chose not to consider seriously the facts Stanley Kurtz laid out 5 years ago. So now with the U.N. Security Council vote (on the eve of Hanukkah of all days!) we have Israel stripped of territory it has occupied for the past 1,000 years (Jewish Quarter of East Jerusalem and the Western Wall) plus so much else. Thank you, Mr. Obama.
Here is a worthwhile discussion of Obama's treachery.
My own feeling is that this U.N. action against Israel will be a catalyst for a major shakeup of the world's international relationships. As someone presciently said of President-elect Trump months before he was elected, "Trump is a wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness." Similarly, I think he will be a "wrecking ball" to the world's international alignments as they appeared at the end of 2016. The world needs "shaking up" in a positive way. Charles Krauthammer says "it is time to rethink our slavish devotion, to an institution that devotes itself to attacking an ally and to undermining American interests." Absolutely! That's a first step.
The fact is that Americans have to really think about why we still invest, support, and, in a sense sort of psychically invest in the U.N., which was a great idea 70 years ago when it was an idea. But it’s a complete failure, and it’s a farce. Sixty percent of its activity is devoted to reports, attacks, denunciations, and demonization of one state — the one Jewish state on the planet, a dot on the map. . . Time to rethink our devotion, slavish devotion, to an institution that devotes itself to attacking an ally and to undermining American interests. [my emphases]
