One of the most liberal democrats in the business is slamming President Obama and his Anti-Israel abstention from the United Nations vote. We wil let his words speak for themselves. Read the story below.
As Written By Patrick Goodenough for CNS News:
Republican lawmakers unsurprisingly slammed a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Israel and the Obama administration’s decision to allow it to pass, but almost one-third of the Democratic caucus in the U.S. Senate – 15 of the 46 senators – have also come out publicly since Friday against the move.
“Extremely frustrating, disappointing & confounding that the Administration has failed to veto the U.N. resolution,” tweeted incoming Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), setting the tone.
Schumer described the U.N. as a “fervently anti-Israel body.”
“Knowing this, past Administrations – both Democrat and Republican – have protected Israel from the vagaries of this biased institution,” he said. “Unfortunately, this Administration has not followed in that path and its actions will move us further from peace in the Middle East.”
At least 14 of Schumer’s Democratic colleagues reacted to the move with statements or social media posts slamming passage of the resolution, with some expressing dismay that the administration did not veto the measure.
