As Twitchy told you, today, the Obama administration delivered a disgusting slap in the face to Israel by abstaining from voting on a UN Security Council Resolution condemning Israeli settlements. Given Obama’s history words and behavior with regard to Israel, this news isn’t entirely unexpected. Still, there’s something horrifically disgraceful about watching our leadership hang Israel out to dry.

It’s even more disgraceful when you factor in what President Obama was doing today:

More from The Hill:

President Obama on Friday marked the start of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, offering well wishes to those who celebrate in the U.S. and worldwide.

“As night falls over each of the next eight days, Jews in the United States, Israel and around the world will gather to light their Hanukkah menorahs, display them proudly in the window and recall the miracles of both ancient times and the present day,” Obama said in a statement.

 

“For more than two millennia, the story of Hanukkah has reminded the world of the Jewish people’s perseverance and the persistence of faith, even against daunting odds.”

Daunting odds, like say, an American president who refuses to stand with one of our greatest, most loyal allies?

It’s outrageous. Truly.
