The New York Times is reporting that the US is threatening Israel with dropping its Security Council Veto protection in the UN if Israel doesn't begin to toe the Obama line.
That will effectively align the US's positions in the UN with all the other 3rd world, dictatorial, and anti-Semitic nations that frequently abuse the UN's platform to attack Israel.
This comes as no surprise to us at the Muqata, which has constantly viewed the UN as the unique opportunity for countries to demonstrate (or not) the morality, ethics, and principles of their governments and leaders – particularly through their positions on Israel.
It is unfortunate that Obama has decided to align the US with regimes such as Syria, Pakistan, Egypt and even Libya, and furthermore (once again) attempt to create linkage between (in this case) a political disagreement and the basic abuse of the UN platform to disseminate Antisemitism.
But as Obama was willing to link the survival of Israel against a nuclear Iran to Jewish homes, the UN is just small game.
But as Ben Gurion famously said, "UM Shmum".
Or as Prime Minister Netanyahu said today, "[We won't] freeze [Jewish] life in Judea and Samaria."
And we can't agree more.
As for you Jews in America, time to start waking up to the new world order under Obama.
And if you are really bored, go to Google and look up "Obama Preventive Detention".
But whatever you do, don't try to find out what Rush Limbaugh might have to say about it.
Obama has already told Republicans to stop listening to him, and you're next.
