Obama’s administration has had no qualms with disrespecting Israel, along with the United Nations. Now the Israelis are demonstrating their displeasure.
Israel has suspended “working ties” with 12 nations on Monday, all of the ones that voted for the United Nations resolution to condemn settlements of Israeli people. Some of these countries are: Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, and Spain. (via NY Daily News)

The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, vowed to exact a “diplomatic and economic price” for the ones of the Security Council that passed the resolution.
Netanyahu has recalled his ambassadors from 10 of the involved countries so far, so it’s clear that he means business.
President-elect Donald Trump has vowed things will be different at the UN once he is officially the President of the United States. He is also displeased with the resolution against the Israeli people.
“The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!” Trump stated on his Twitter.
Echoing the claims of the Prime Minister, the Israeli officials threatened on Monday to deliver “iron-clad information” to Trump’s incoming administration, information that shows Obama’s involvement in the settlement resolution.
“This was a deliberate push by the United States and in fact they helped create the resolution in the first place,” Netanyahu spokesman, David Keyes, stated. And later, Ron Dermer, another Israeli ambassador said that the U.S. was “behind this ganging up on Israel.”
“We will present this evidence to the new administration through the appropriate channels,” Dermer stated. “If they want to share it with the American people, they are welcome to do it.” Obama’s administration has denied these claims, of course.
Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, is more than willing to question the United States as well. He has criticized Obama for not vetoing the resolution, basically comparing Obama’s actions to a war cry. And if it were happening nowhere near a change of leadership, it very well could have been.
Donald Trump has quite a lot on his plate for this presidency, and Obama does not seem to mind adding more. Trump already has to clean up the Democrats’ messes within our country, and now there’s one outside of our country too.
