Obama has received major backlash after backstabbing Israel during his shameful move that allowed anti-Semites to condemn our ally.
It was a SICK decision. Now, find out WHY he says he did it. DESPICABLE!
VIA| During an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes, President Obama had the gall to claim that during his tenure, the U.S. has “defended them [Israel] consistently in every imaginable way,” and that his shameful move at the U.N. to abstain from a vote about Israeli settlements, which allowed the international body filled with anti-Semites to condemn our ally, was done to make a “point.”
Obama actually claimed that the “point” he made at the U.N. was just something friends do. Seriously.
“We are reaching a tipping where the pace of settlements, during the course of my presidency has gotten so substantial that it’s getting harder and harder to imagine an effective, contiguous Palestinian state,” Obama said to Steve Kroft.
“Because of our investment in the region, and because we care so deeply about Israel, I think has a legitimate interest in saying to a friend, ‘This is a problem,’” Obama said.
Kroft began by asking Obama: “A few weeks ago you allowed the U.N. Security Council to pass a resolution condemning Israel’s settlements in the West Bank. It caused a major fallout between the United States and Israel. Was it your decision to abstain?”
To which Obama responded: “Yes, ultimately.”
Kroft then asked the soon-to-be former president “Why did you feel like you had to do that?”
