Israel’s Culture and Sport Minister, Miri Regev, is thrilled that President Obama is leaving office.
The Obama administration infuriated the Israeli government last week by failing to block the passage of an anti-settlement resolution in the UN Security Council.
In an interview with Army Radio on Sunday, Regev stated the following:
“In Obama’s world view we have moved closer to peace, but during his term we have just gotten further from it”, adding “there have been more and more terror attacks in Berlin, Orlando and yesterday in Turkey, what does any of this have to do with the [Israeli] settlements? It just cannot be the case that this is the way the President of the United States, who thank God is finishing his term, treats the State of Israel, as the weak link in the Middle East.”
Immediately after the resolution passed, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared his displeasure by stating, “Yesterday, in stark contrast to this commitment [to not dictate terms of a permanent settlement to Israel through the UN], the Obama administration took a shameful anti-Israel step at the UN.”Netanyahu also stated, “The decision not only does not bring peace closer, but it makes it more distant.”
