Almost from the beginning of the modern state of Israel, it's friend, it's best ally has been America especially when it came to protecting it from many enemies at the UN. Today, however Barack Obama drove a dagger in the back of the Jewish State, by failing to exercise his veto power in the Security Council. On a vote condemning Israeli settlements on the West Bank the U.S. chose to abstain and therefore allowed the resolution to pass. This broke years of tradition. A tradition of standing by Israel, often against the world. President Obama, in his last month in office, has shown his true colors when it comes to Israel. Incoming President Trump urged the veto be cast, but Obama seemed determined to once more kick dirt in the face of Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli people. That said, the people of Israel should not fear, America will have a new sheriff very soon and for the first time in over 8 years the Jewish State of Israel will have a friend in the White House, instead of half-Muslim bastard son of a Kenyan goat-herder. And yes, I'm pissed. But that will pass come inauguration day this January 20, 2017.
