Following the U.S. failure to veto a United Nation Security Council vote condemning Israel for settlements in Palestinian territories, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed President Obama, accusing him of “colluding” against the Jewish nation.
Now, a Netanyahu spokesman says Israel has “ironclad information” to prove it.
“Well, we have ironclad information, frankly, that the Obama administration really helped push this resolution and helped craft it, from sources internationally and from sources in the Arab world, and it’s really an unfortunate legacy, kind of last minute jab at Israel that actually distances peace.”
Spokesman David Keyes made the accusation during an interview on CNN.
Keyes, of course, refused to reveal any information Israel may have, but said he believes the peace process has been damaged as a result of it.
“We have full confidence that the information is accurate. This resolution is shameful and actually pushes peace farther away.”
The White House admits that Obama personally made the decision to abstain, rather than veto, but denies that he or his administration was involved in crafting it.
In related news, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz warned on Saturday that U.S. funding of the United Nations was in jeopardy if the vote is not reversed—echoing a similar threat from South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Friday.
