Barack Obama did some very stupid and reckless things while serving as president , but his latest Israel scandal was the cherry on top. On Friday he gave a ‘go’ to condemn the West Bank and this just started a big fire.
After this happened, Congress decided to withdraw all of America’s funding to the United Nations. According to The Washington Free Beacon, certain congress members said that Obama is now determined to act additionally on Israel and their affairs before he ceases to act as president.
Another report from Fox News states that Congress also intends on dropping all Palestinian diplomats residing in America as well as freezing all money that Obama used to defeat and hurt Israel in the process.
“The 115th Congress must stop the current administration’s vicious attack on our great ally Israel, and address the major priorities of the incoming administration,” Cruz added, making it clear that he wants to work with the Trump administration to rebuild our relationship with Israel.
Both-side lawmakers are awfully angry at Obama for making this move in the first place.
“Not content with spending the last eight years using the United Nations to undermine American sovereignty, the Obama administration has finally trained their sights on Israel and is trying to exploit this unelected and unaccountable international body to impose their resolution of the Palestinian issue on Israel,” one senior congressional aide told the Free Beacon. “Enough is enough.”
“A new administration will arrive on January 20th, but in the intervening weeks Congress has an important role mitigating the damage President Obama can do in his final hours,” the source said. “Why on earth would we throw good taxpayer dollars after bad in support of the UN, which has proven itself again and again utterly unable to encourage any positive progress? Just take Syria — if they were doing anything over the last five years, it should have been working out a fair and equitable adjudication of the Syrian war.”
“Instead, they’ve proven themselves utterly useless–in fact they’ve probably made a gut-wrenching catastrophe worse,” the source explained. “There’s no reason to think this action will turn out any more favorably.”
