In sharp reversal, U.S. agrees to rebuke Israel in Security Council
The U.S. informed Arab governments Tuesday that it will support a U.N. Security Council statement reaffirming that the 15-nation body "does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity," a move aimed at avoiding the prospect of having to veto a stronger Palestinian resolution calling the settlements illegal.At a time when the Arab world is in serious turmoil, the US is going to tell Israel not to build anymore houses? They are going to weaken Israel at the very time that Israel is being surrounded and threatened by the Islamic nations? Iran is sending warships through the Suez Canal, and Obama is going to slap the Israelis on the wrist for building houses, giving those Islamic nations more power?
But the Palestinians rejected the American offer following a meeting late Wednesdy of Arab representativs and said it is planning to press for a vote on its resolution Friday, according to officials familar with the issue. The decision to reject the American offer raised the prospect that the Obama adminstration will cast its first ever veto in the U.N. Security Council.
Canada would have stood up to the Islamic nations and sided with Israel, that is why Obama did not support our bid for a seat at the security council. We would not have been scared of the US, we would not have bowed down to the Arab world, like Obama did. Now, with the US weakened by Obama, Israel is in deep trouble. They obviously can not rely on the US to back them up, and they know they will get no support from Europe. Canada and Australia will support them, but we are not super powers like the US or China.
Israel stands alone. The election of Obama sealed their fate, and the fate of those Islamic countries who think they can start a war against Israel without consequences.
While Islamic counties revolt against their dictators, shouting for democracy, the US under Obama and the UN are trying to restrict Israel, a sovereign nation, from developing their own nation. Funny how the US has no comment on the warships headed towards Israel. When did Americans become weak? Why does the Arab world think they can win a war against Israel? What has Obama said to them besides the bowing? He's a dangerous clown.
This is the President of the US. Can you be sure he will make the best decisions for America? To help Israel? Does the US have your back anymore? When the President of the US bows to enemies and will not support their friends, what happens next?
Obama refused to support their best friend Canada in their quest for a seat on the security council, Obama is now refusing to support Israel, does the US have any friends left that Obama hasn't screwed? I'm starting to think Alberta needs to turn off the taps to the US, and start sending our oil to China.
