The United States might have gotten rid of a key United Nations settlement that condemned Israel for its West Bank settlements by voting against it rather than staying away, former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton stated Friday night, but he believes President Barack Obama got the action to “box the arriving Trump administration in.”
Obama’s decision to abstain from a vote made people angry. Who betrays their personal good friend?
John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush, Obama did something worse than punching Israel in the back. Bolton is also a candidate for a spot in Trump’s administration.
Bolton believes that Obama tried to spoil Trump’s pro-Israel agenda, and Trump hasn’t entered his office yet.
Bolton went to Sean Hannity’s Fox Tv news show, and Bolton exposed that this avoidance was an effort to “box the inbound Trump administration in.”
” This was a stab in the back opposed to the Israelis,” Bolton described. “It was entirely predictable. I would say this for individuals in the pro-Israel society in the United States who defended Obama’s Middle East policy over these last eight years: You really should have seen this arriving and this is what you get for encouraging Barack Obama.”
” I think this was an attempt to box the in-coming Trump management in, and it breaks nearly 50 years of American bipartisan policy on the Middle East, going back to the iconic resolution 242 after the 1967 war,” Bolton added with a credentials to the UN resolution.
Bolton stated that this settlement compromises along with Israel’s occupation of the region.
” Therefore it has no land to give back in exchange for peace. Contrary to what the Obama management has said, this puts a big thumb on the scale in opposition to Israel.”
Keep in mind how Obama spoke right before The American Israel Public Affairs Committee during the course of his campaign in 2012? He asked, “Is there any doubt that I have Israel’s back?”
Well, he definitely has Israel’s back pretty much in the same way Marcus Junius Brutus got Julius Caesar’s, and Fredo got Michael Corleone’s.
” It was to be expected that Israel’s biggest ally might act in accordance with the benefits that we split up and that they would have vetoed this disgraceful settlement,” announced Israel’s Ambassador Danny Danon right after the vote, as revealed by Fox News. “I have no doubt that the new U.S. administration and the incoming U.N. Secretary General will usher in a new era in terms of the U.N.’s relationship with Israel.”
Do you think Bolton is right? Is this definitely what Obama was up to?
” This was actually a stab in the back against the Israelis,” Bolton explained. “It was entirely predictable. I would say this for people in the pro-Israel community in the United States who defended Obama’s Middle East protocol over these last eight years: You should have viewed this coming and this is what you get for supporting Barack Obama.”
