PM spokesman says Israel has “ironclad information” Obama Administration helped craft anti-Israel UN resolution.
The Israeli government has publicly accused the Obama Administration of having helped develop and push for the UN Security Council resolution condemning any and all Jewish presence over the 1949 armistice lines.
David Keyes, the spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, made the accusation on Fox News’ “America’s News HQ” program, claiming that Israel had “ironclad information” that the Obama Administration not only allowed the resolution to pass by going against the longtime US policy of vetoing one-sided resolutions against Israel, but took part in crafting the resolution and pushed for its passage.
“We have rather ironclad information from sources in both the Arab world and internationally that this was a deliberate push by the United States and in fact they helped create the resolution in the first place.” Keyes said.
The Prime Minister warned government ministers earlier that President Obama could cause further harm to Israel before he leaves office on January 20.
Army Radio broadcaster Erel Segal today reminded listeners that Obama began his presidency with a visit to Cairo, avoiding a stop in nearby Israel. While in Cairo, he spoke of Israel’s existence being a result of WWII’s genocide of the Jews, exactly as the Arab world does, thereby making the Jewish state an alien entity with no roots in the Holy Land.
