Washington - Obama Twice Rebuffed Pleas From Harry Reid To Side With Israel On UN Palestinian State Resolution

Washington, D.C. - During the contentious build-up to a congressional vote on his nuclear accord with Iran, President Obama twice rejected pleas from Democratic Senate Minority leader Harry Reid that he side with Israel and stand against the UN Palestinian resolution.

POLITICO.com (http://politi.co/1LSWpgl) reports that as Reid was attempting behind the scenes to line-up Democratic support for Obama’s Iran accord, he twice approached White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough requesting that the president publicly reverse his stance on the UN resolution in hopes that Democrats would see it as a leverage enough to get behind the accord.

According to reports—-which have now been confirmed by the White House—-Reid’s first request to McDonough was met with a response that the White House “would look into it,” with no action forthcoming, while his second rejection implied that while the White House was in fact opposed to the UN resolution, Obama was unwilling to commit publicly due to his displeasure with Netanyahu’s comments while addressing the U.S. Congress in March that termed the Iran accord, “a very bad deal.”

Obama rules without listening to anybody.When he decides what his plan is he will not take into consideration what anyone has to say.He is committed to further the policies of religious moslems and to give them control of their countries.

The article does not say that Obama will vote against Israel in terms of the latest Palestinian state resolution at the UN. It merely says he refused to promise not to do it in order to give Democrats cover on the Iran deal. Meanwhile, the fact remains that every time the Palestinian state resolution has come up at the UN, Obama has voted against it. I don' care for the man, but facts are facts.

So what this proves is that not only is obama y's a vindictive scoundrel, but it confirms (as if there was ever a doubt) his anti Semitic and anti Israel views.

Excellent points and so sadly true! And yet the unabashed liberal idiots still defend him as if there's one good thing he has brought to our country or the world!
