Obama’s revisionist ‘Promised Land’ stuffed with falsehoods, omissions, inaccuracies

– Obama’s revisionist ‘Promised Land’ 

 

(November 26, 2020 / JNS) I have never criticized former U.S. President Barack Obama publicly—neither during my time in the Knesset nor anywhere else—despite my having disagreed with many of his policies. I am of the strong opinion that Israelis should not engage in or interfere with American politics, and I regularly offer a blanket thank you to all American presidents, including Obama, for their economic and military support for Israel.

Outgoing Israeli Ambassador Spotlights Obama’s Egregious Betrayal

“It was a moment I will never forget…I think the [UNSC] resolution was the lowest place in decades regarding Israel and the US.” says Israeli ambassador of Obama’s choreographed betrayal of the Jewish State at the United Nations.

Danny Danon last week conducted his final press conference as Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations.

His tenure in that position was punctuated by passionate Scripture-based lectures defending Israel’s divine claim to the Holy Land. More than once he opened the Bible before his mostly secular colleagues and read to them form the Word of God.

Now that he’s a private citizen, Danon said we can expect to hear even more from him. Continue Reading »

Following US betrayal at UN, Israel turns to Putin to nix Obama’s next attempt

Newly declassified phone-call transcripts confirm Netanyahu lobbied both Putin and incoming Trump team to squash Obama’s second anti-Israel UN Security Council initiative, generally recognized as ‘incompatible with Israel’s long-term security needs.’

By i24NEWS

 

In late 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin prevented former U.S. President Barack Obama’s attempt to pass a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution demanding Israel relinquish the West Bank territories and accept a two-state resolution based on 1948 borders, freshly declassified documents appear to show.

The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday that phone conversations between U.S. President Donald Trump’s former adviser Michael Flynn and former Russian UN Ambassador Sergey Kislyak confirm that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lobbied both the Kremlin and the incoming Trump administration to curb the initiative he perceived as incompatible with Israel’s long-term security needs.

REVEALED: Following Obama betrayal at UNSC, Israel sought Putin’s protection

Three and a half years after UN Security Council Resolution 2334 condemning Israeli settlement activity passed thanks to an US abstention, as opposed to their usual veto, new details published this week raised new questions.

REPORT: Obama’s timing of anti-Israel UN resolution was to milk Jewish Donors

NY Times reports how the Obama White House always supported backing the UN Security Council’s anti-Israel Resolution 2334, but delayed its vote until after Jewish donors were secured for Hilary Clinton’s 2016 election bid.

By David Rosenberg

 

The Obama White House may have exerted more influence over a controversial anti-Israel United Nations resolution than previously believed, according to a new report by The New York Times.

In December 2016, following the 2016 presidential election, the Obama administration ordered the US mission to the UN to abstain from a Security Council vote on resolution 2334, which condemned Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria, and eastern Jerusalem as ‘flagrant violations’ of international law with “no legal validity”.

Previous Saudi envoy to the U.S., in an interview with Independent Arabia, said Obama “would promise something and do the opposite,” then quoted Saudi King Abdullah as saying, “I did not expect that [after] this long life, I would see [the day] when an American president lies to me.”

Israelis go into high gear, when Obama slows Federal chase for Hezbollah bank accounts

Israel’s Mossad and an Israeli law NGO were going after Hezbollah’s finances before the US’s Operation Cassandra, but when Obama slowed the investigation down, agents turned to the Israeli NGO to keep the heat on the terrorists.

By YONAH JEREMY BOB

 

Long before the US ramped up the pressure against Hezbollah’s financial network in 2006, and then dialed it down in 2009-2010, the Mossad and an Israeli NGO were going after the terror group’s monetary oxygen.

In fact, even when the US returned to taking a backseat, Shurat Hadin – Israel Law Center – kept going after a major Hezbollah allied Lebanese bank and connected banks, winning a major US court decision in 2012. Continue Reading »
