Report: Obama planning to stop defending Israel at UN

A. Zarkov writes:

The U.S. has had a long standing policy of vetoing U.N. resolutions against Israel. Now according to The Guardian, as reported at The Jerusalem Post, that might change:

In an attempt to launch indirect proximity talks between Israel and the Palestinians, the US has given private assurances that it would consider not using its veto power against UN Security Council condemnations of any significant new settlement activity, the Guardian reported.

A Palestinian source quoted by the UK paper said David Hale, a deputy of US Middle East envoy George Mitchell, told Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas last week that if there was “significantly provocative settlement activity,” including in east Jerusalem, Washington may consider allowing UNSC resolutions censuring Israel to pass. According to the paper, the source said “it was understood that meant the US would abstain from voting on a resolution rather than use its veto.”

Conservatives take note of Obama’s emerging pattern of behavior. The more success he has with his domestic legislation, the more strident he becomes. If he finishes the Trifecta this year, I’m sure Obama will become more aggressively anti-white. If the Democrats should somehow hold onto Congress after November, then Obama then we will see an Obama unleashed. He will morph into a Hugo Chavez and proceed to move against free speech by putting talk radio out of business and seizing control of the Internet. All this will be done to prevent hate speech against nonwhites, and hate speech will be anything the government says is hate speech.

The stakes are pretty high in November: the fate of freedom in America. He knows that too. One can only wonder what attempts he will make to rig the election. If the Democrats win in November then we will face a drastic curtailment in freedom or perhaps a civil war.
