Posted on 12/23/2016 8:01:23 PM PST by ForYourChildren
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) issued the following statement after the Obama administration today failed to exercise its veto to defeat a discriminatory anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations Security Council:
"For eight long years, the Obama administration has worked systematically to undermine the nation of Israel. They actively worked to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu, and illegally used U.S. taxpayer funds to do so. Never has there been a more anti-Israel Administration, and today's United Nations vote is the culmination of their systemic agenda to weaken Israel and strengthen its enemies.
"I agree with the senior Israeli government official who said today:
'President Obama and Secretary Kerry are behind this shameful move against Israel at the UN....The U.S. administration secretly cooked up with the Palestinians an extreme anti-Israeli resolution behind Israels back which would be a tailwind for terror and boycotts.'
"Every Obama foreign policy official should be ashamed of today's UN resolution, and any official who disagrees with or hopes to avoid the anti-Israel legacy of this Administration should resign on principle today.
"I also emphatically second the call of my colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham that the consequences of this disgraceful UN resolution should be severe. I look forward to working with Sen. Graham, and with the incoming Administration of President-elect Trump, to significantly reduce or even eliminate U.S. funding of the United Nations, and also to seriously reconsider financial support for the nations that supported this resolution. For those who have put your name to this despicable attack on Israel, you did so with full knowledge of the consequences of your actions.
"And for those who acquiesced or facilitated the UN resolution--especially President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and Ambassador Power--history will record your abiding and shameful legacy undermining our friend and ally Israel. I am hopeful at least some Senate Democrats will choose to repudiate your anti-Israel actions, and I am grateful that the new Administration has committed to once again restoring our strong and unequivocal support for the Nation of Israel."
President Obama and Secretary Kerry are behind this shameful move against Israel at the UN, said an Israeli official, who asked not to be identified.
The U.S. administration secretly cooked up with the Palestinians an extreme anti-Israeli resolution behind Israels back which would be a tailwind for terror and boycotts.
I wouyld love to see President Trump EVICT the UN and move them to Haiti.
WHO’S GOT THE CRUZ PING LIST?!?!
whadya expect from a man who maintains we are now the largest muslim nation?
Ted who? Oh, that guy that couldn’t say the name Trump at Trump events...
I really wondered what he thought. LOL As if!
Trump has already said all I wanted to hear on the subject.
Let us know how your lemonade stand is going Teddy. Well, no don’t tell us.
Why didn’t TED CRUZ declare he supported PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP’S stand on ISRAEL?
And nevertheless, US Jews voted overwhelmingly for both Obola and HItlary. Go figure.
Ted will never admit he agrees with Trump.
It’s eating him up inside that Trump is going full speed ahead right now, and the people he is picking are very capable people.
Could have been an insider Ted, but you were too busy showing us why you don’t have any friends.
"Carl Paladino, the former co-chair of President-elect Donald Trump's New York campaign and the Republican nominee for governor of New York in 2010, told a Buffalo arts publication that his wishes for 2017 included President Barack Obama dying of mad cow disease and his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, "return to being a male." "
Thanks, Carl. I will adopt those wishes for 2017 also.
Still off your meds IC.
You may tout your supposed “doughtiness” but for this issue you’ll need wisdom. To vastly reduce (or, in my dreams, completely defund) American financial support of the United Nations, Congress (including the Senate) will need to be awakened & energized to action TO SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP. Unrelenting Patriots such as Ted Cruz will be essential in this effort. Perhaps, in your blindness and lack of wisdom, you fail to understand this. That is unfortunate.
Unlike you evidently, I didn’t need them.
I jettisoned this clown from my dream team early on. He was less than worthless.
What is incredible is that Israel was living in this land for 1000’s of years- the muslims come along and go to war with Israel- and they OCCUPY the west bank and another key Israeli town for like 14 years- Israel gets the land back again which was rightfully theirs to begin with- and now the world thinks the land is the Muslims and accuse Israel of ‘bullying and Aggression”?
What a despicable thing the outgoing president has done- Absolutely shameful- it was a great big F U to Israel-
And no- this isn’t just some ‘little thing’ that will simply blow over once dear leader leaves office Jan 20- this one act alone sets up the very real possibility that the UN will hold ‘war crimes’ hearings against Israel now- and will use this as their excuse to go in and forecefully try to take hte land away and give it to the palestinians because they will make it appear that they have the ‘force of international law’ behind them- They will accuse Israel of ‘crimes against humanity’ and use that as their guise to attack Israel- and our president just gave them the green light to go ahead with this anti-Semitic agenda-
Ted is a worthless piece of (fill in the blank).
He spent months telling folks what to do at special events, and then voted against his own advice.
Put him on someone else team. I’ve got no use for him.’
May Glenn Beck has a job for him.
it has to be Stockholm syndrome- there’s simply no other explanation- common sense would dictate the Jews run as far away from the left as possible- but they never do-
And yet Obamas whitehouse has the nerve to say this:
WH: Obama Has Done More For Israel Than Any Previous U.S. President
Why should Haiti suffer with these UN goons..send them to North Korea or Afghanistan
All those things you mention, that was Obama’s intent.
He’s trying to screw us by going after Israel. This is a temper tantrum, him trying to shove this in our face.
I’d love to see Congress impeach the guy, strip him of his income for life and his security detail.
It’s almost unfathomable the things he has done, and many folks haven’t a clue.
