President-elect Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and even ranking Democrat in the House Chuck Schumer took to Twitter to voice their condemnation of Barack Hussein for his shameful slap in the face to Israel on his way out the door.
The United States failed to veto a UN resolution condemning longtime ally Israel for continuing to build settlements in territory disputed by the Palestinian Authority, allowing the resolution to pass.
Shame on our Anti-Semite-in-Chief. In less than a month there will be a new President who will reverse all of the injury he can that Barack Hussein inflicted on America and the world. I hope those who voted for Hussein in 2008 and 2012 have learned something from the national and global misery over the past eight years at the hands of Hussein…. but I doubt it.

Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
The big loss yesterday for Israel in the United Nations will make it much harder to negotiate peace.Too bad, but we will get it done anyway!

As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.

Extremely frustrating, disappointing & confounding that the Administration has failed to veto the UN resolution.

From One News Now
Taking to their Twitter accounts, President-elect Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vented their warnings to President Barack Obama and the United Nations (U.N.) to stop their pro-Palestinian policies that empower the terrorist-run occupiers of Israel’s West Bank and Gaza Strip to continue their attacks on the Jewish State.
The day before the U.N. Security Council issued its Friday resolution to condemn Israel for building settlements in the Palestinian-occupied territory of the West Bank, Netanyahu boldly proclaimed on his Twitter account that the so-called global peacekeeper’s pro-Palestinian policy should be utterly rejected in the form of a veto.
Trump has Netanyahu’s back
The prime minister’s tweet calling for Obama and other global leaders to veto the U.N.’s decision condemning Israeli housing construction was quickly reverberated by Trump, who is looking forward to rekindling the longstanding Israeli-American alliance that went cold during the Obama administration.
Needless to say, the incoming president’s advice via Twitter was ignored by the current commander-in-chief, who consistently makes it a habit to adopt the U.N.’s continued anti-Israel policy.
“The resolution being considered at the United Nations Security Council regarding Israel should be vetoed …” Trump tweeted on Thursday in a last-minute attempt to persuade Obama to abort his pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel foreign policy.
However, shortly afterward, Obama refused to veto the resolution condemning Israel.
Egypt, a member nation of the U.N., drafted the resolution to serve as an immediate halt to Israel’s construction of settlements in the West Bank and Palestinian territory in East Jerusalem. Both Netanyahu and Trump tweeted on Thursday to push for a veto, but the resolution was rescinded for vote by Egypt that day … and postponed until Friday.
Trump also took to Facebook before the anti-Israel resolution was made final on Friday, making his point clear about the importance of the United States standing behind Israel – a message that was later shunned by Obama.
“As the United States has long maintained, peace between the Israelis and Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations,” Trump expressed to millions of his social media friends. “This puts Israel in a very poor negotiating position and is extremely unfair to all Israelis.”
Despite the pleas of Trump and Netanyahu, many conservatives feared that Obama would not part from the past disdain he had expressed for Israel’s construction of settlements.
It was reported by TheBlaze that the president had previously indicated that before ending his second term in office, he had no intentions of revisiting any discussions pertaining to the stalled Israeli-Palestinian discussion – meaning that he would remain pro-Palestinian in his stance up through his final day.
According to the Times of Israel, Israel was given a glimmering ray of hope when Egypt withdrew the resolution for consideration Thursday night, as Israeli’s ambassador to the U.N., Danny Danon announced at that time that he was continuing his diplomatic efforts to make sure the U.N. Security Council’s “disgraceful resolution” would not pass. However, after the foreign ministers of the Arab League member states decided how to proceed once the postponement ended, the doomed fate of the new Israeli housing was sealed – apparently to Obama’s satisfaction.
