NETANYAHU HAS HAD ENOUGH! Puts Obama on BLAST — ‘Friends Don’t Take Friends to the Security Council’

obamaThe U.N. back-stabbed Israel. And Obama was the leader of the pack. Netanyahu made his feelings known and let’s just say he’s happy to see Obama go. Obama is leaving the White House with less friends than what he started with. Let’s hope we can heal from the disaster of the last eight years.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lambasted the Obama administration on Sunday for the U.S. decision to abstain from the United Nations Security Council vote on a resolution that demanded an end to Israeli settlement construction.

“Over decades, American administrations and Israeli governments have disagreed about settlements, but we agreed that the Security Council was not the place to resolve this issue,” Netanyahu said in English at his weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.

Netanyahu said that Israel knew bringing the issue up before the U.N. would “make negotiations harder” and would “drive peace further away.”

“As I told [Secretary of State] John Kerry on Thursday, friends don’t take friends to the Security Council,” Netanyahu added about the vote that took place on Friday.

He said he’s encouraged by “friends” in the U.S. — both Republicans and Democrats — who he said agree that the U.N. resolution is “reckless and destructive” and understand that the Western Wall in Jerusalem is not occupied territory.

“I look forward to working with those friends and the new administration when it takes office next month,” he said.

The Israeli prime minister has accused the Obama administration of initiating the resolution.
