Even as President Obama has been working as hard as he can to make the Middle East a more dangerous place by arming Iran with nuclear weapons, he also just snubbed the only true ally we have in the region by refusing to allow the top members of the US delegation to the UN to attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech earlier this week.
As Netanyahu fought for freedom, democracy, and liberty, Obama predictably turned away, refusing to allow our own officials to hear the Prime Minister’s speech.
To give our top officials an excuse to miss the speech, Breitbart News reports that Obama called Secretary of State John Kerry and the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Power, into a video conference only moments before the PM started his speech.
“Ambassador Power and Secretary Kerry were unable to attend Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before the General Assembly because they were called into a meeting with President Obama, which they participated in via video teleconference,” a State Department Official reported.
So, as Netanyahu represented the free world, Obama and his most senior foreign policy officials appeared to be absent.
The long-serving Israeli Prime Minister notably stared down those in attendance at the U.N. for a blistering 44 seconds of silence to symbolize the “utter silence, deafening silence” given to Iran’s constant threat that at some point, it intends to murder every Jew in the world.
Because of Iran’s constant boasts of genocide, Netanyahu noted, “Perhaps you can now understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this deal.”
It is no wonder that Obama and his top officials wanted to skip the speech. Since Obama is the biggest proponent of giving Iran the tools to carry out its threat of annihilating Israel, it isn’t likely that Obama was interested in being scolded over what Israel feels is his complicit part in Iran’s plans.
