The gloves are off.
The United Nations, knowing full well it could pass anti-Israel resolutions designed to prolong the Arab-Israeli conflict only while President Obama still held office, moved forward with such a plan on Friday, December 23.
President Obama made it possible.
President-elect Trump had tried to take steps to forestall this blood libel.
He had coordinated a day earlier with President al-Sisi of Egypt to orchestrate a delay, and went public with his own view that the U.S. should maintain its standard practice of vetoing all such resolutions.
But it is the office of the president that possesses actual power; the office of president-elect has only the bully pulpit. And President Obama chose to wield that power in a way that will make another Arab-Israeli war more likely, create a diplomatic crisis for the United States, and operate to the detriment of traditional Arab allies like Egypt. Following on the heels of UNESCO’s decision, earlier this year, that the Jews lacked any historical connection to Israel — notwithstanding three thousand plus years of physical, archaeological, documentary, written, and oral evidence — the UN Security Council has now decided that Jewish settlement in the historic Jewish homeland is illegal.
Those who voice consistent, principled support for Israel are livid — but not remotely surprised. It has been clear for years that President Obama, Secretaries Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, and Ambassador Samantha Power were true, deep sonei Yisrael, an ancient religious term far older than “anti-Semite” that translates literally as “haters of Israel.” There has never been much hope that the lame duck Obama would leave office before inflicting further harm on the Jews and on the Jewish State — though the harm he has inflicted over the past eight years has already been considerable.
Nor are Trump supporters surprised by the president-elect’s extraordinary intervention.
We backed him — at no small risk to personal and professional relationships — because we saw a man far more interested in ensuring that the good guys win than in playing with a deck stacked to favor evil.
We hope that principled Israel supporters who opposed Trump’s candidacy can already see the folly of their ways — and set aside prejudice and ego to judge our incoming president by his actions, not the media’s slander.
There is a limit, of course, at the rage one can direct at Jew haters for acting like Jew haters. It’s expected. Israel’s false friends — Jews and non-Jews alike — have enabled and condoned their hateful behavior.
For years, Israel supporters have had to endure the obvious lies of American Jewish leaders that Obama was not only an excellent president, but a good friend to Israel. Even now they continue to insist that when it comes to Israel, there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats.
Leading allegedly “pro-Israel” organizations made the case that even though the Obama-Iran deal was a clear existential threat to Israel, those who supported it showed just as much love for the Jewish State as those who opposed it.
That the empty platitudes of Sen. Chuck Schumer represent real advocacy or exertion then and now.
That Israel or Prime Minister Netanyahu bear the blame for angering Obama and making the Democratic Party and the left home to open anti-Semitism — by the crime of allowing Jews merely to live.
It would be preferable to think them fools rather than knaves, but it becomes harder to do so with each passing year. Genuinely pro-Israel voters and donors are misled by dismal political and organizational leadership either incapable of or unwilling to appreciate the difference between Israel’s true friends and genuine Jew haters.
They are reprehensible, and those who continue to fund them or follow them in any way share culpability in their crimes against Israel and against the Jews.
To say that the vast majority of American Jews who not only voted against Donald Trump, but who spent months slandering him in the vilest of terms, owe him an apology is a vast understatement. What they need is a full program of self-reflection, a twelve-step program, and a full day of atonement.
Their behavior has been despicable and reprehensible, and we are tired of it.
We believe strongly in Jewish unity, but some things are more important than unity. Jewish survival is among them. Or rather there can be no real unity until there is clarity and a commitment to Jewish morality and survival at its core. It is far past time for America’s Jews to learn how to tell their friends from their enemies, and the friends of Israel from its enemies.
The gloves are off.
Barack Obama and Donald Trump have each removed any reasonable doubt that might have lingered.
Obama is a Jew-hater; Trump is our friend.
There is no longer room for reasonable people to disagree.

All bets are off now that the Security Council voted 14-0 to condemn Jewish settlement activity over Biblical Judea, Samaria, and even Jerusalem.
Israel now has the green light to build, baby, build and Trump will have all the incentive he needs to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem.
All because that Security Council measure is so preposterous.
Coming as it does from the United Nations, which is in the hands of terrorists, mobsters and tyrants whose only business is to condemn Israel.
Blast and damn the gluttonous Liberals, here, there and everywhere who delivered Israel into the claws and arms of those jackals. Their names will be associated together with Haman.
As of that day, another date that will live in infamy, Friday, December 23, 2016, Israel owes nobody nothin’. Annex Judea and Samaria. Forget the Oslo Accord. Forget 800 trucks a day plying food and supplies into Gaza. Forget the illusion of Abbas as a partner in peace. Declare him and his PA (Palestinian Authority) persona non grata.
From Donald Trump and US Congress, cease $600 million a year in direct funding for the PA and millions more through UNRWA and other false-front agencies.
Dismantle the PLO’s office in Washington, D.C.
Forget the mirage of a two state solution. For Kerry, Obama, and Samantha Power, the action was taken to “further peace.” Nothing can be further from the truth. This was an act of infamy against the Jewish State.
They say it was meant to advance a two state solution whereby two peoples live side by side in peace and security. Where do Arabs live in peace and security even among themselves – Syria, Iraq, Yemen?
The two state solution is a trap – a device to swarm Israel out of existence. That’s been the plan all along…to uproot the Jewish people from their ancestral homeland, by hook or by crook.
That the United States, under Obama, took part in this abomination, by letting it go through by the trick of abstaining, is an everlasting blight on our reputation.
Senators Lindsay Graham and Ted Cruz say so. Here’s Cruz: “And for those who acquiesced or facilitated the UN resolution–especially President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Ambassador Power–history will record your abiding and shameful legacy undermining our friend and ally Israel.”
How have the mighty fallen? This is President John F. Kennedy in 1961 at his inaugural address: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” Instead, friends of liberty were blindsided by Obama’s farewell address of sorts, his parting shot to sock it to the Jews.
So now the table has been set for Donald Trump to do what’s right. As the news came in, in anger we wrote (on Facebook): “Donald Trump will have to DRAIN THAT SWAMP. “Immediately end all financing for the UN, consider all resolutions against Israel flagrant, nonsensical, bigoted and non-binding…dissolve diplomatic status and immunity across the board…give all members 48 hours to pack up and leave town…and then destroy the building to a heap of rubble.”
Now that we’ve had a chance to calm down, we say it again, exactly as is, but add – Build, Baby, Build.

BOOM! Obama Tried To RUIN Trump Presidency – Judge Jeanine Just Knocked Him Senseless!
The most popular topic these days is whether or not Russia was in close relation with Donald Trump and his administration. Above all, the mainstream media bombed with fake news and various stupid accusations such as: Carlson Tucker is russian spy. Ha-ha-ha!
Is this the last spin of the wealthy evil snakes that want to destroy the USA? How is it possible, one strong Christian country, that was BEGGING Obama, in a way, to join forces with America against ISIS- to be our enemy?
The proxy cold war and the 90’s destruction of Russian economy was nothing but successful attempt by George Soros, Rhothshield and Rockfeler to establish total world domination. These people funded Hilary Clinton’s campaign. The same ones completely controlled Obama’s rule and created ISIS. These wealthy bankers are now, major enemies to every patriot in the World and of course Donald Trump.
Our brave elect-president confronted these sick pscychopats as he announced war alliance with Russia against the islamic terrorism. Donald Trump is strong and intelligent man, and first of all- a real patriot. On the other hand, Vladimir Putin is big patriot and conservative, who made rebirth of Russia ( after Soros attempt to destroy Russia) – so why these two leaders of the strongest nation do not join forces and destroy every terrorist in the world.
Well, it is against the globalization policy and the super rich banks and corporations that make the biggest profits from WAR! ISIS are nothing but dogs of war, tool in the hand of Illuminati. Just as same as the mainstream media is… But look how Jeannine Pirro confronted this sick idiots!
Great speech! This little piece of dumb Obama knows very well what he did. He refused the friendship with Russia to make himself rich beyond imaginable and satisfy his donors. If Hilary came to power, we would have been in third world war with hiroshimas and nagasakis all around the world. Shame on you Democrats! You should have cleaned your party from these snakes.
