Obama’s long anti-Israel record now reaches its culmination: a betrayal of our ally at the United Nations. Obama is doing all he can to make Trump’s task as difficult as he possibly can. Even Paul Ryan said: “Today’s vote is a blow to peace that sets a dangerous precedent for further diplomatic efforts to isolate and demonize Israel.” Indeed: that was the point.

“US abstains in key Israel vote, clearing way for condemnation of settlements,” Fox News, December 23, 2016:
A “shameful” abstention by the U.S. in a United Nations vote Friday allowed passage of a resolution condemning Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank.
The UN Security Council resolution was put forward by four nations a day after Egypt withdrew it Thursday under pressure from Israel and U.S. President-elect Donald Trump. Failure by the U.S. to veto the measure was seen as a double-cross of America’s key Middle Eastern ally, and attributed directly to outgoing President Barack Obama, who has had chilly relations with Israel throughout his eight-year tenure.
Reaction from U.S. Republicans and Jewish leaders around the world was swift and sharp.
“It was to be expected that Israel’s greatest ally would act in accordance with the values that we share and that they would have vetoed this disgraceful resolution,” said Israel’s Ambassador Danny Danon. “I have no doubt that the new U.S. administration and the incoming UN Secretary General will usher in a new era in terms of the UN’s relationship with Israel.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., blasted the Obama administration for undermining America’s historic Middle East ally.
“This is absolutely shameful,” Ryan said. “Today’s vote is a blow to peace that sets a dangerous precedent for further diplomatic efforts to isolate and demonize Israel.”
Minutes after the vote, Trump took to Twitter to express his opposition.
“As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” Trump tweeted.
The measure was adopted with 14 votes in favor, to a round of applause, after U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power abstained. It is the first resolution the Security Council has adopted on Israel and the Palestinians in nearly eight years.
“The resolution is too narrowly focused on settlements when we all know, or all should know” there are other factors that contribute to the conflict between Israel and Palestinians, Power said in an explanation for why the U.S. chose to sit on the fence, which ensured passage of the resolution
The Obama White House, under heavy pressure from the Israeli government and its supporters to veto the resolution, kept everyone guessing until the vote whether it would stop shielding Israel from council resolutions and permit it to pass by abstaining.
The resolution, warning that Israeli settlement expansion is “steadily eroding the two-state solution and entrenching a one-state reality,” calls on Israel to “immediately and completely cease all settlement activity in occupied territories, including East Jerusalem.” It repeated the longstanding UN position that all settlements on land Israel conquered in 1967 are illegal under international law.
A senior Israeli official accused the U.S. of a “shameful move” after learning that it did not intend to veto the text, the BBC reported.
The U.S., which has veto power as one the council five permanent members of the council, has traditionally sheltered Israel from condemnatory resolutions. But the Obama administration has long made clear its opposition to Israeli settlement-building in occupied territory and there had been speculation that in its final month it might allow a resolution against settlements to pass at the U.N.
A senior Israeli official told The Associated Press: “President Obama and Secretary [of State John] Kerry are behind this shameful move against Israel at the U.N.
“The U.S. administration secretly cooked up with the Palestinians an extreme anti-Israeli resolution behind Israel’s back which would be a tail-wind for terror and boycotts and effectively make the Western Wall [the Jewish holy site in the Old City of Jerusalem] occupied Palestinian territory.”
Most of those critical of the move by the U.S. painted it as a stab in Israel’s back delivered by Obama.
“This last minute political maneuvering is shameful,” said Ric Grenell, former spokesman for the U.S. Mission to the UN and a Fox News contributor. “It is inconsistent with the long standing U.S. policy that no country or organization should be dictating solutions on the two parties.
“Today’s abstention by the Obama Administration will make it harder to find a peaceful solution because it imposes outside positions on Israel without letting them negotiate directly,” he added….

A widely distributed political cartoon shows Barack Hussein Obama embracing Raul Castro, the totalitarian Communist leader of Cuba, and the Ayatollah leading the fascist Islamic Republic of Iran. It is one of the best evidences of Obama's self-promoting hypocrisy and Machiavellian duplicity.
This is especially true since it was published on another day which will live in infamy" -- Dec. 23, 2016. That is the day on which the United States, two days before Christmas, by order of Barack Hussein Obama, aided and abetted the Muslim dominated United Nations General Assembly, fascistic Islamic theocracies, and overt Islamic terrorist organizations like ISIS, al-Queda, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Palestine Liberation Organization, in adopting a resolution condemning Israel in the Israel-Palestinian conflict and declaring as a matter of international law (since U.N. resolutions have that status) that Jews have no right to settle outside of the 1948 borders of Israel, forbidding them to live even in the "Jewish Quarter" of Jerusalem.
Eight years of Barack Hussein Obama ruling by race in the U.S. and by pro-Islamist policies in the world, has come to this disgraceful end of his presidency in the U.N.
If anyone needed further proof that Obama — America's first and hopefully last Affirmative Actiion President who was elected not because of his achievements but because of, not in spite of, his race — is an utter con-man who deceived Americans as to what he really is at his progressive liberal neo-socialist anti-American core in which it is and always has been "all about him."
The duped and deceived by Obama include in particular Israel supporting American Jews, secular and observing, who voted for him despite his utter lack of achievement and contributed millions in support of his elections in a percentage almost as high as American blacks who voted by race (96% in 2008; 93% in 2012).
Note that Obama waited until after the 2016 election -- that is, after American Jews had contributed their financial support all but exclusively to Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party -- to reverse American policy by abandoning Israel by "abstaining" on the resolution condemning Israel in the U.N.
Indeed, the Machiavellian hypocrisy is blatant— the U.S. vetoed the same resolution in 2011 when Obama was running to be re-elected in 2012. Now, when Obama's term is ending and he cannot run again, Obama reverses the U.S. position of 2011 and stabs Israel in the back.
Thus, Obama betrays and makes dupes of all Americans who believed him, and in him, including the American Jews whose millions in campaign contributions helped to elect him twice when in both campaigns Obama gave assurances that U.S. unwavering relationship in support of Israel would not change if he was elected.
Further, while Obama issued the order to "abstain" and thus effectively support the Muslim UN attack on Israel, Obama claims his disgraceful decision was taken with the support of Democrat Party leaders Hillary Clinton, who ran in 2016; John Kerry, who ran in 2004, and Joe Biden, who now says he will run for President, again, in 2020. Thus, they, too, and the Democrat Party which they lead, are guilty.
But it is Obama who issued the order and owns this disgraceful decision to align the U.S. with the totalitarian Islamic theocracies in the U.S. and to weaken Israel. This despicable decision is further evidence, if any was needed, that Obama is not only the "First Black U.S. President" he is also the "Worst U.S. President."
Now that his presidency has ended and he can't run again, watch Obama campaign, overtly and as well as covertly, to be elected Secretary General of the U.N. He will be able to tell the Muslim nations which have numerical superiority in the General Assembly to remember how he sided with them in his presidency, from his "Apology For America Tour" and kowtowing to Islam "Cairo Speech" in the beginning of his presidency in 2009, to the U.S. action in the U.N.on Dec. 23, 2016.
 President-elect Donald Trump denounced this anti-Israel dirty deal of Obama and the U.N. and promised that American policy will change on July 20, 2016, when he is inaugurated as President. Not a minute too soon.

This shameful overt anti-Israeli U.N. action, which manifestly strengthens and supports totalitarian Islamic governments and Islamic terrorist organizations, and weakens Israel -- the only democracy and America's only true ally in the Middle East -- is an infamous betrayal of America as well as of Israel.
It should be the last straw for "We, the People" of America regarding the value of the U.N. as presently constituted; and regarding "the value," first and foremost, of Barak Hussein Obama and his "historic election as the first black president," as well as "the value" of Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Joe Biden, and the other leaders of the Democrat party who supported and are responsible for this disgrace in the U.N.
