Throughout his sham of a presidency, Barack Hussein Obama has almost single-handedly ruined our relationship with our once-close ally of Israel. He made things even worse for us on Friday when he allowed the United Nations to condemn the West Bank settlers in a controversial vote. Now, this has come back to bite him in a big way.
Congress is reportedly moving to cut off all American funding to the United Nations after they pushed Obama’s anti-Israel legislation. They are also thinking about expelling all Palestinian diplomats from the U.S. and punishing the countries that voted in favor of the resolution. In addition, lawmakers want to freeze funds to prevent Obama from taking any further action against Israel before he leaves the White House.
“The disgraceful anti-Israel resolution passed by the UNSC was apparently only the opening salvo in the Obama administration’s final assault on Israel,” said Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas). “President Obama, Secretary Kerry, Ambassador Power, and their colleagues should remember that the United States Congress reconvenes on January 3rd, and under the Constitution we control the taxpayer funds they would use for their anti-Israel initiatives.”
One senior congressional aide said that lawmakers are furious at Obama, saying that “Enough is enough.”
“A new administration will arrive on January 20th, but in the intervening weeks Congress has an important role mitigating the damage President Obama can do in his final hours,” the source said. “Why on earth would we throw good taxpayer dollars after bad in support of the UN, which has proven itself again and again utterly unable to encourage any positive progress? Just take Syria — if they were doing anything over the last five years, it should have been working out a fair and equitable adjudication of the Syrian war.”
“Instead, they’ve proven themselves utterly useless–in fact they’ve probably made a gut-wrenching catastrophe worse,” the source concluded. “There’s no reason to think this action will turn out any more favorably.”
