“We have unequivocal evidence that the Security Council resolution passed in the U.N. against Israel was led by the administration” – Benjamin Netanyahu
As the remaining days of Barack Obama dwindle down, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu escalated his criticism of the Obama administrations stunning betrayal of the Jewish state.
Speaking with a visiting AIPAC delegation, Netanyahu told them:
“I want you to know on no uncertain ground, we have unequivocal evidence that the Security Council resolution passed in the U.N. against Israel was led by the administration. There’s no question whatsoever about that. None, whatsoever.”
Netanyahu tore into John Kerry’s defense that the U.N. vote echoed the policy of previous administrations, describing Obama’s actions as a “major break” with prior administrations.
Where President Obama now defines all territory beyond Israel’s 1967 borders as occupied Palestinian territory, the Clinton administration had a much different viewpoint in 1994. Netanyahu quoted a statement by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright:
“We oppose the specific references to Jerusalem in this resolution, and will continue to oppose its insertion in future resolutions. We simply do not support the description of the territories occupied by Israel in the 1967 war as occupied Palestinian territory.”
“Obviously there is a substantive break with previous U.S. policy”, Netanyahu stated. He also described a “procedural break”, in that all prior U.S. administrations had been diametrically opposed to allowing the Security Council to define the final settlement terms of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
