Obama and the UN Want Israel Out Of Jesus’ Death Place, Sen. Cruz BOMBS Them With This Resolution

By

U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) today introduced the Safeguard Israel Act, which will cut off funding to the United Nations until the President certifies to Congress that the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2334 has been repealed. The resolution passed last month undermines and delegitimizes our our ally, Israel.

Cruz and Graham discussed the importance of their legislation in interviews earlier today on Morning Joe and Fox and Friends, which may be viewed here and here.

“I’m proud to be working with Lindsey on this important legislation,” Sen. Cruz said. “President Obama betrayed decades of robust bipartisan American support for Israel at the United Nations by permitting the passage of a biased resolution that condemns our close friend and ally.

The Security Council’s resolution is only the latest example of the UN’s long history of obsessive hostility towards Israel and we must not let this shameful action stand. Congress must hold the UN accountable and use our leverage as its largest contributor to push for the repeal of this resolution, making it clear to the world that Congress stands unequivocally against efforts to undermine Israel.”

“Twenty-two percent of the money to fund the UN comes from the American taxpayer,” Sen. Graham said. “I don’t think it’s a good investment for the American taxpayer to give money to an organization that condemns the only democracy in the Mideast, and takes the settlement issue and says that’s the most important and only issue in terms of an impediment to peace.

I begged the UN months before, don’t put me in this box. This was John Kerry and Obama taking a slap at Israel. We’re going to push back. I think most Americans believe that the United Nations has become more anti-Semitic, more anti-Israeli. And I’m a big internationalist, but we’re going to stop the money until we get this fixed. I appreciate Ted’s leadership on this.”
