Obama and Kerry Still Think They Were Good for Israel, But Get a BRUTAL Wake-Up Call From Bibi

By

We can most likely count on Barack Obama and John Kerry carrying their delusions of grandeur to their graves.

But that won’t stop the rest of us from laughing and scorning the pair of failed liberals at every opportunity.

Nor will it stop Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, apparently.

Kerry this week was busy defending the Obama Administration’s record on Israel, despite recent outright betrayals of the Jewish state.

In a farewell interview on CNN, Kerry explained to Christiane Amanpour why he and Obama refused to veto last month’s UN Security Council resolution targeting Israel, and why he thinks that was a “friendly” gesture.

“We, at the UN, made the decision we made, because we believe that Israel has a major choice and the Palestinians have a major choice,” said Kerry. “The choice we put to Israel is ‘if you want to be a Jewish state and you want to be a democracy, you cannot be a unitary state’ and right now they are marching down the road because of the increased settlements, because of the absence of a legitimate negotiation toward that possibility.”

He conveniently glossed over the part where the resolution effectively declared it illegal for Jews to visit Judaism’s holiest site, the Western Wall of the Temple Mount. And that the resolution had only emboldened Israel’s enemies, putting true peace even further out of reach. But some would say that was their intention all along.

Still, according to Kerry, Israel has no better friend than the outgoing administration.

“All we are trying to do is speak as a good, solid best friend of Israel and we have done more for this government, more for Israel than any other administration,” he said.

Of course, Israel’s government sees the situation very differently.

At Sunday’s cabinet meeting, Netanyahu dismissed the Middle East peace conference that was taking place in Paris the same day, and which was enthusiastically attended by Kerry as a follow-up to his administration’s behavior at the UN.

“I must say that this conference is among the last twitches of yesterday’s world. Tomorrow’s world will be different – and it is very near,” Netanyahu said in clear reference to Israel’s anticipation of this Friday’s inauguration of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States.
