WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah said in a column yesterday that President Obama should be held responsible for any future terrorist attacks against Israel after the U.S. decided to abstain from a United Nations Security Council vote on a resolution calling on Israel to cease construction on settlements in the West Bank.
Farah claimed that President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power have given “encouragement, aid and comfort to the terrorists” behind “constant, bloody attacks on the Jewish state.”
“Merely passing a resolution like this represents not only tacit support of terrorism,” he wrote. “It also constitutes support for anti-Jewish bigotry. And by abstaining from the vote, Obama’s gang owns that bloodstain and the stench of hatred and bigotry that goes with it.”
But let me tell you with certainty what this disgusting, backhanded, last-minute, drive-by sideswipe by Obama and company against Israel will mean.
Encouragement, aid and comfort to the terrorists who have one thing in mind – constant, bloody attacks on the Jewish state with the purpose of posing a long-term, existential threat to any chance for peace in Israel.
So the next time you hear about a vicious, savage, murderous terror attack in Israel, I want you to remember the names Barack Obama, John Kerry and Samantha Power – not to mention the rest of this administration’s national security and diplomatic hierarchy.
And there will certainly be a next time. Obama knows it. Kerry knows it. And Samantha Powers knows it.
This action demonstrates an unleashed and unhinged level of contempt by the Obama gang for America’s best ally in the Middle East, perhaps its best friend in the world, as well as the only self-governing, free nation in the region.
It has no doubt triggered celebrations among jihadists in Hamas, Hezbollah, the Palestinian Authority and around the entire Jew-hating world.
Merely passing a resolution like this represents not only tacit support of terrorism. It also constitutes support for anti-Jewish bigotry.
And by abstaining from the vote, Obama’s gang owns that bloodstain and the stench of hatred and bigotry that goes with it.
