Barack Obama never did anything to help out Israel, America’s staunchest ally.
The Democrat Party has acted salty toward the Jewish homeland for decades.
Now, Barack Obama has the gall to pander at a synagogue and say he’s ‘basically a liberal Jew.’
Former President Barack paid a visit to a New York City synagogue this week where he implied that his criticism of Israel while he was in office was just tough love and that he at heart “basically a liberal Jew” as he defended his policies.
Obama’s speech to worshippers at Manhattan’s Temple Emanuel is yet another example of how he continues to meddle in the nation’s foreign policy after he left office.
Haaretz has more:
In a rare public appearance, former U.S. President Barack Obama spoke at a synagogue in New York City this week about his relationship with the Jewish community and his administration’s policy toward Israel. Obama described himself as “basically a liberal Jew” and said that criticizing Israel’s settlements in the West Bank was part of his support and friendship to Israel.
The event at Temple Emanuel in Manhattan marked the first time that Obama spoke publicly about Israel since leaving office. The 44th president said that his administration gave Israel more military support than any previous administration, referring to a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the United States and Israel during his last year in the White House. “This is not a matter of dispute,” he said.
Obama defended his decision to abstain at a December 2016 UN Security Council vote denouncing Israeli settlements. He explained that vetoing the resolution would have hurt “our credibility on human rights.” He also stated that “to be a true friend of Israel it is important to be honest about it, and the politics of this country sometimes do not allow for it.”
Is this the same Obama who posed for a photo with Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam?
From Talking Points Memo:
A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.
The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”
The most corrupt president in American history.
What a legacy 44 left behind.
