Obama Inc. keeps looking for excuses to pick fights with Israel.
The Obama administration has...
1. Given a green light to Iran's nuclear program
2. Covertly backed the Hamas-PLO unity government
3. Announced that it intends to fund a Hamas-PLO unity government
4. Failed to hold the PLO accountable for anything while ranting non-stop about Israeli houses
But now it's all about Ukraine. Because an Israeli Foreign Ministry strike kept Israel temporarily out of the loop. And Susan Rice is still ranting about it.
The United States may be committed to supporting Israel, but that commitment comes with strings attached, National Security Adviser Susan Rice said during a talk in Washington, DC on Wednesday evening.
“America will always maintain our iron-clad commitment to the security of Israel, ensuring that Israel maintains its qualitative military edge and can protect its territory and people,” Rice told attendees at the Center for a New American Security’s annual conference in Washington DC. “Equally, we consistently defend Israel’s legitimacy and security in the UN and other international fora. In turn, we expect Israel to stand and be counted with the US and other partners on core matters of international law and principle, such as Ukraine.”
That darn Israel.
Why doesn't it put out more Ukraine related hashtags. Rice and Team Obama's plan for Ukraine consisted of hashtags, MREs for the Ukrainian military and useless sanctions. And a useless UN vote which Israel missed leading to yet another attack from Rice.
But if Israel supported Ukraine the way Obama supports Israel, it would provide it with military equipment while recognizing the splinter Russian states, arming those states while demanding that Ukrainians stop building settlements in any territory that Russian claims as its own.
Team Obama is constantly bashing Israel while complaining that it doesn't get enough support from Israel on "core matters of international law".
Meanwhile Israel's UN voting record aligns with the US more than any country that isn't effectively run by the US. Israel has voted closer to the US than Canada.
And that's saying something.
But Obama Inc. keeps looking for excuses to pick fights with Israel.
