It’s plain to see that under President Obama, the United States was an enemy to Israel. Despite a long-standing relationship with the nation, Obama has shown a cold shoulder to them, seeming to rather help the hostile, terrorist-supporting nations that aim to destroy them.
This has never been more true than when, under Obama, billions of dollars were sent to Iran, a nation bent on destroying both Israel and America. The Iran nuclear deal will also see nuclear weapons in the hands of the dangerous nation, which will use them almost immediately.
These actions by the current President are only a taste of the insulting treatment he has shown to Israel. Recent events by the U.N. only solidify Obama’s legacy as an enemy to former allies.
But things are about to change very soon.
From The Hill:
President-elect Trump slammed the Obama administration for its decision not to veto a U.N. resolution critical of Israel’s settlements, promising that it would be “different” under his presidency.
As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.

“As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” Trump tweeted Friday.
Trump’s tweet came about an hour after The U.N. Security Council passed a resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building in occupied territories.
The U.S. had the ability to veto the resolution but abstained from doing so despite pressure from Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. lawmakers.
The Obama administration’s decision to let it pass represents a break from the longstanding U.S. policy of shielding Israel from U.N. reproaches.
Because of all the nations within the U.N. that are hostile toward Israel, it often seems that the “bipartisan” organization gangs up against them. The United States and precious few others are quick to defend their ally and prevent the tyranny of these other nations from tearing them down.
Make no mistake, the nations hostile to Israel want to see it destroyed. Their ultimate goal is to destroy the sovereign nation, but undermining their right to build settlements for their people, on their own land.
Without the support of the United States, Israel will have a harder time growing and thriving. It seems Obama’s lack of support is trying to do just that.
Hopefully, come January 20, the U.S. will be the ally Israel should always had.
