Commenting on the Obama administration’s decision not to veto a United Nations resolution demanding that Israel stop building Jewish settlements on land it captured in the 1967 war, Pastor Franklin Graham said he was “disappointed” that the U.S. government showed such “contempt” for Israel, and added that for the United States “not to stand with Israel is shameful.”
In a Dec. 26 post on Facebook, Rev. Graham wrote, “Israel is America’s closest ally in the Middle East and the only true democracy in that region of the world.”
“I’m disappointed that the current administration in Washington seems to have such contempt for this nation and its elected leaders,” said Rev. Graham.
“For the U.S. not to stand with Israel is shameful,” he said.
On Friday, Dec. 23, the United Nations passed a resolution demanding that Israel stop building settlements on land it captured during the 1967 war. The resolution passed because the United States, usually a defender of Israel at the U.N., did not step in as a “permanent member” and veto the measure. Many critics have called this a betrayal of Israel.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said in a statement, “President Obama is personally responsible for this anti-Israel resolution. His diplomats secretly coordinated the vote, yet he doesn’t even have the courage of his own convictions to vote for it.”
“This cowardly, disgraceful action cements President Obama’s richly deserved legacy as the most anti-Israel president in American history,” said Sen. Cotton.
Even Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), a strong supporter of President Obama, said, “Whatever one’s views are on settlements, anyone who cares about the future of Israel and peace in the region knows that the U.N., with its onesidedness, is exactly the wrong forum to bring about peace.”
President-elect Donald Trump tweeted, “As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.”
In the six-day war of 1967, Israel was attacked by Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon. This attack was also supported by Algeria, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Pakistan, the PLO, Sudan and Tunisia. Despite the overwhelming number of troops and weaponry deployed against Israel, the Jewish state won the war and captured territory previously held by the Arabs, including the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights.
