After President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry failed to stop a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Israel, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) argued they fulfilled their legacies as anti-Israeli.
CRUZ: If you look at the last several weeks, what the Obama administration has done, it’s shameful. And really, their true colors are coming out. Where on the way out, they’ve struck out at Israel in a way that is hateful and profoundly damaging. The U.N. resolution that passed with Barack Obama and John Kerry’s active acquiescence, if not their encouragement, is profoundly anti-Israel. It’s absurd. It actually declares much of Israel to be illegal and illegitimate. It declares the Temple Mount, the holiest place in Jerusalem for Jews, to be not legitimately part of Israel. It declares the Western Wall, where Jews from all over the world go to pray, to be illegal and not part of Israel. For decades the United States has stood as an ally of Israel at the United Nations against anti-Semitism. And I think Barack Obama did this because he wanted to secure his legacy — and I’ve got to tell you, I think he has, I think history is going to record Barack Obama and John Kerry as relentless enemies of Israel.
