Ted Cruz has been making big waves since he ran in the election. Pro-Israel conservative’s everywhere are cheering after Ted Cruz calls out Obama, “And for those who acquiesced or facilitated the U.N. resolution — especially President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Ambassador Power — history will record your abiding and shameful legacy undermining our friend and ally Israel.” Wow Ted, them are fightin’ words! Find out what the Trump admin and Ted plan to do about the funding to the UN! This is YYUUUUGGEE.
VIA| Sen. Ted Cruz, the one-time Republican presidential challenger and a staunch defender of Israel, was one of the most angry voices in Washington. In a scathing statement, the Texas Republican rebuked the Obama administration and called on the incoming Trump administration to defund the United Nations for its actions against Israel.
““For eight long years, the Obama administration has worked systematically to undermine the nation of Israel,” Cruz wrote. “They actively worked to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu, and illegally used U.S. taxpayer funds to do so. Never has there been a more anti-Israel administration, and today’s United Nations vote is the culmination of their systemic agenda to weaken Israel and strengthen its enemies.”
Cruz proposed several ways to meliorate the damage caused by the resolution, including completely revoking American funds from the United Nations.
He also had harsh words for the Obama administration.
“And for those who acquiesced or facilitated the U.N. resolution — especially President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Ambassador Power — history will record your abiding and shameful legacy undermining our friend and ally Israel,” Cruz wrote.
“I am hopeful at least some Senate Democrats will choose to repudiate your anti-Israel actions, and I am grateful that the new administration has committed to once again restoring our strong and unequivocal support for the nation of Israel.”
