Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, strained to justify the abstention, claiming her vote was supported by Democrats and Republicans. She told the Security Council after her abstention, “It is because this resolution reflects the facts on the ground and is consistent with U.S. policy across Republican and Democratic administrations … that the United States did not veto it.” Both Republicans and many Democrats condemned the refusal by the Obama regime to fail to veto the resolution.
Addressing the council afterward, Power said the “Security Council reaffirmed its established consensus that settlements have no legal validity.”
“The United States has been sending the message that the settlements must stop — privately and publicly — for nearly five decades” she continued. “So our vote today is fully in line with the bipartisan history of how American presidents have approached both the issue — and the role of this body.”
She also said the settlements have gotten so far out of control that they are endangering the two-state solution.
“One has to make a choice between settlements and separation,” Power said.
The Obama regime has been advocating the two-state solution throughout its 8-year tenure. The two-state solution refers to a solution of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict currently under discussion, which calls for "two states for two groups of people." The two-state solution envisages an independent State of Palestine alongside the State of Israel, west of the Jordan River.
These are the people with whom Obama and the UN want Israel to grant a state so that all can “live in peace.”
A senior adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that any Palestinian interactions with Israelis should end with violence, rather than dialogue.
“If you ask me my blunt position, I would say — every place you find an Israeli, slit his throat,” Sultan Abu al-Einein, a member of the central committee of the ruling Fatah party, told the Palestinian website Donia al-Watan, when asked about Palestinian officials participating in Israeli conferences. “Likewise, I am against talks, negotiations, meetings, and normalization in all its forms with the Israeli occupation.”
This is how Obama’s good friend in the Middle East, Iran, is assisting in the negotiations so all can “live in peace.”
Iran plans to incentivize and reward terror in Israel by giving financial support in the form of thousands of dollars to the families of Palestinian terrorists killed while carrying out violent attacks against Israelis and Jews, announced an Iranian official.
Mohammad Fathali, Iran’s ambassador to Lebanon, made the remarks at a press conference in Beirut, saying that the aid was a continuation of “Iran’s support for the oppressed Palestinian people”.
The money will to go to “families of Palestinian martyrs who were killed in the ‘Jerusalem intifada,’” said Fathali. "The decision firstly includes giving an amount worth $7,000 (£5,028) to every family of a martyr of the intifada in Jerusalem."
And Obama and the UN want Israel to grant territory for a Palestinian state right in its back yard on its eastern border. Then Israel would have granted territory to terrorists on both sides of its borders. In 2005, Israel gave Gaza to the Palestinians. Israel gave up every inch of the land, uprooting thousands of settlers and relinquishing strategically vital territory. Rather than getting peace in return, Israel got terror: Hamas control of Gaza, Qassam rockets raining down on southern Israel, and the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit. The Gaza experience proves that "land for peace" doesn't work.
This absolutely proves the hate Obama has for Israel and the sympathy he has for his Jihadist brothers.
