Obama will be out of the White House in less than two weeks.
Before leaving, he tried to stick his middle finger up to Israel as he abstained from a UN Security Council vote which condemned Israeli settlements.
Now the House of Representatives denounced this action against one of our closest allies.
From The Hill:
The House passed a resolution on Thursday denouncing the Obama administration’s abstention from a critical United Nations Security Council vote condemning Israeli settlements.
Lawmakers of both parties supported the measure in a 342-80 vote, with four Democrats voting “present.” A majority of Democrats, 109, voted for the resolution; 76 Democrats opposed it. All but four Republicans voted for the resolution.
The Obama administration drew criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike last month when it declined to veto a U.N. resolution condemning Israel’s expansion of settlements in occupied Palestinian territories as violation of international law.
