Obama administration betrays Israel with UN Security Council vote, noting using veto

The UN Security Council passed a resolution betraying Israel by condemning the building of homes and businesses within its borders. Fourteen of the 15 nations approved it and the United States-refusing to veto it-abstained.
The are accusations that the Obama administration worked behind the scenes to support and push the measure. While the President’s advisors deny the rumors, the Obama administra­­­­tion abstained from the vote, allowing the passage.
Critics say that this resolution will embolden terrorists and encourage violence and bloodshed in the Middle East. President-elect Trump contacted Egypt after they initiated the resolution, speaking with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, according to reports. The vote was dropped.

New Zealand, Venezuela, Malaysia and Senegal – pushed ahead with the vote. President-elect Trump actively opposed this resolution as Trump’s selection for Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, publicly supports Israeli Jews having the right to develop their own land.

“In the last 27 days of his term Obama dishonored America’s strong support of Israel, insulted Jews and Christians by his shameful act on Hanukkah and the eve of Christmas, and shook his fist at the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,” said Mat Staver, President of Christians in Defense of Israel and Covenant Journey.
“This pitiful and toothless resolution of the U.N. Security Council will accomplish nothing but focus our resolve to clip the wings of this albatross that has long outlived its usefulness. America should defund this bureaucratic theater of the absurd,” said Staver.
“On January 20 there will be a new president who will embody our resolve to stand with Israel. In 2017, we will work hard to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, the eternal and undivided capital of Israel. Make no mistake, our resolve is stronger than ever. Every nation that has come against Israel is no more; yet Israel survives and thrives. Like rebellious nations that have long since been forgotten, Obama’s parting legacy will soon be no more. We will stand with Israel and erase the memory of today’s betrayal,” said Staver.
