Obama’s shocking decision to abstain from the UN vote that betrayed Israel left many people wondering why, well John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations explains it.
“This was a stab in the back against the Israelis,” Bolton said. “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 policy over these last eight years: You should have seen this coming and this is what you get for supporting Barack Obama.”
“I think this was an effort to box the in-coming Trump administration in, and it violates 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 reference to the UN resolution.
“Therefore it has no land to give back in exchange for peace. Contrary to what the Obama administration has said, this puts a huge thumb on the scale against Israel.”
Last time Obama spoke before The American Israel Public Affairs Committee during his campaign in 2012 he said “Is there any doubt that I have Israel’s back?”
Do you think Bolton is right?
