Senator Ted Cruz has been one of the loudest detractors of President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry’s actions in reference to the recent Israeli United Nations resolution. This past Thursday Cruz took to the Senate Floor and ripped President Obama and John Kerry a new way for what he called a shameful betrayal of Israel. He said,
“President Obama and John Kerry’s actions were designed to secure a legacy, and in that they have succeeded. History will record and the world will note that Barack Obama and John Kerry are relentless enemies of Israel.”
Cruz claimed that Kerry has a stunning moral equivalence when he previously compared Israeli settlement building to the acts of radical Islamic terror that have been committed by Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.
Cruz also said,
“Unlike Barack Obama and John Kerry, I do not consider the existence and creation of Israel to be a disaster. And the government of the United States should not be suggesting such a thing. Kerry’s speech attempted to lay out an historic and seismic shift toward the delegitimization of our ally Israel. And it is a sign of their radicalism and refusal to defend American interests that Obama and Kerry chose to attack the only inclusive democracy in the Middle East, a strong, steadfast ally of America, while simultaneously turning a blind eye to the Islamic terrorism that grows daily.”
In response and retaliation for the resolution that takes away sovereign Israeli settlements Cruz has called for cutting the American funding of the United Nations until the United Nations repeals the resolution which he labeled anti-Israel and discriminatory.
It is already clear that President Elect Donald Trump will have a much different relationship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well as all of Israel. He has already vociferously backed Israel and notated that what President Obama did was wrong.
