President Obama, all actions have consequences, including stabbing Israel in the back.
Israel has now announced its intent to cut $6 million they usually provide as United Nations funding. I bet Obama never saw that coming! (via The Times of Israel)
The Israeli mission stated that they would be removing some of their $40 million United Nations contributions because this money was allocated to four committees that were involved in Palestinian issues.
These committees Israel is de-funding include: the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, the Division for Palestinian Rights, the Work of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People, and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories
And they are also cutting support from a program: the Special Information Program on the Question of Palestine of the U.N. Department of Public Information. Clearly, Israel is refusing to fund these parts of the United Nations because they are working against Israel.
“We seek to stop the practice where the UN is used solely as a forum for unending attacks against Israel,” said the Israeli Ambassador, Danny Danon. This change in funding is because of Obama’s lack of action in the UN Security Council’s resolution against Israel.
Obama’s decision has not only alienated Israel, it was also distanced the American people. Even many Democrats were outraged by this betrayal of our ally. They never thought that the outgoing President was capable of such a thing.
The cut in funding is only the first measure the Israelis will be taking, according to their United Nations representatives.
Israel’s decision is supported by a lot of people. If it were me, I would cut all of the funding. Why would a country pay to meet others who intent to persecute them? In fact, the United States should follow suit!
Israel is our ally, and we should have supported them. Instead, our President decided to stab them in the back and continue to support the Islamic State. And the American people have to sit back and deal, but no more. This is the last straw.
Thank goodness Donald Trump is going to be in the White House soon, and the alliance with Israel can continue unhindered. Obama has made it perfectly clear that he will always support the Muslim people and no one else, but Trump is going to re-establish our strong ties with Israel.
