"President Obama has sealed his legacy. In his last days in the White House, his administration abstained in a crucial vote at the UN Security Council allowing yet another resolution condemning Israel to pass.
The decision was both spiteful and dangerous because it reflected a personal position towards Israel. The action will further destabilize an already frenzied Middle East.
For nearly 50 years the United States was a dependable ally of Israel. It supported Israel in international forums like the UN. It was consistent in rejecting terrorist/jihadist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood.
Early in his first term, President Obama overturned this decades-long U.S. policy of not engaging the Islamists. Instead, he embraced them as cohorts. This change of direction led to the overthrow of leaders in Egypt and Libya. It facilitated the expansion of radical jihadism.
Collaborating with the Muslim Brotherhood has directly contributed to the increased instability in the Middle East.
Today, both Egypt and Libya continue to struggle to abolish elements of radical Islamism. Libya has become a failed state exporting jihadists, weapons, refugees and ideology throughout Africa and even into Europe.
When President Obama abandoned Israel by abstaining from the Security Council vote, he further destabilized the Middle East. The abstention will generate the same impact as the policy to embrace jihadists at the beginning of his presidency..."
