In an op-ed published on the pro-Netanyahu tabloid Yisrael Hayom, Republican Newt Gingrich calls upon the United States to stop supporting the United Nation if it votes for Palestinian independence. “We don’t need to fund a corrupt institution to beat up on our allies,” says Gingrich.
Washington should make immediately clear that it has no tolerance for dangerous stunts that threaten Israel’s survival.
When the U.N. is set to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state and Israel is the only country in the world not even permitted to determine its own capital city, something is very wrong.
The time to stop this disaster is before it happens. Congress and Obama must detail the potential cost of a U.N. betrayal of Israel before the General Assembly meets.
I wonder what would Michele Bachmann’s response be like. Surly, she can’t be left behind in the “who’s more pro Netanyahu” race. My guess is the nothing short of deploying the Marines in Paris would do.
