Israel, after an 8 year hiatus, is again recognized as the loyal, valuable ally it has always been.
Largely lost in the TrumpCare debacle this week, is the following news, excerpted from Ann Gearan’s article in the Washington Post:
The Trump administration is strongly condemning what it calls a systemic anti-Israel bias at the United Nations, arguing Friday that U.N. monitoring of West Bank settlement activity allowed by the Obama administration is the latest example.
Michele Sison, the No. 2 U.S. diplomat at the United Nations, spoke against what the United States says is the unfair singling out of Israel during a closed session of the U.N. Security Council on Friday. There and elsewhere, the Trump administration is arguing that the United Nations has allowed valuable time and attention to be hijacked for bashing Israel.
Sison spoke during the session to hear the first U.N. report issued under a resolution condemning settlements that the Obama administration allowed to take effect in December. In a pointed and highly unusual critique of Israeli actions, the United States had abstained, allowing the resolution to pass, instead of vetoing it as U.S. envoys have done in the past.
That’s right. Israel – the one and only democracy in the Middle East, and the place where Arabs in general, and Palestinian Arabs in particular, have far more rights and privileges than anywhere in the entire Arab world – is now being thought of as something more than annoyance we are stuck with…
…which means that, taking the TrumpCare defeat into account, the administration is one for two this week in reversing Barack Obama’s legacy.
There is plenty to be concerned about in this new administration. But, in this regard, it is spot-on. My congratulations to President Trump, Ambassador Haley, and everyone else who is responsible for it happening.
Oh, one other thing: don’t you love that last paragraph, which says that Israel’s accelerated building of residential units in Jerusalem is ” endangering the territorial viability of a potential sovereign Palestine”?
What does this mean? Let me help. It means that :
-The hamas charter, which specifically calls for the obliteration of Israel and death of all Jews everywhere, which was signed onto in a “unity agreement” by the Palestininan Authority is not the problem;
-The celebration of “successful” terrorists who kill innocent Israelis – such as naming parks, plazas and sporting events afte them – is not the problem;
-The rejection of every peace proposal ever offered to Palestinian Arabs is not the problem.
The problem is that Israel has decided not to leave everything intact for the people doing this – not to say, in effect, no matter what you do we will leave things 100% in place for you, there is no cost to your actions”. Attack us, kill us, threaten us with genocide and it will still be waiting for you, every bit of it.
That, folks, is the United Nations outlook. The one Barack Obama & Co. had so little of a problem with, but Mr. Trump – you know, the “anti-Semite” mainstream media kept telling us about – is fighting so aggressively.
That tells you a lot about Mr. Obama, Mr. Trump and mainstream media, doesn’t it?
