ZERO HEDGE — Following yesterday’s unexpected vote in the United Nations, when the United States broke with a long-standing approach of diplomatically shielding Israel, and did not wield its veto power as it had on many prior occasions – a decision Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu called “shameful” – leading to the adoption of a resolution demanding an end to Israel settlement building, Israel said it would re-assess its ties with the United Nations.  It also said it would not comply with the resolution, suggesting it may now be a “rogue nation” when it comes to UN enforcement.

Israel for decades has pursued a policy of constructing Jewish settlements on territory captured by Israel in the 1967 war. Most countries view Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank and East Jerusalem as illegal and an obstacle to peace. Israel disagrees, citing a biblical connection to the land, and blames the failure of peace efforts on the Palestinian refusal to recognize Israel’s Jewish identity.

And, until yesterday, the US would traditionally turn its eyes away from global anti-Israel consensus (it, too, officially opposes the settlements) and always veto any UN decisions going against Israel.

Then everything changed, when defying heavy pressure from long-time ally Israel the United States abstained in the Security Council decision, which passed with 14 votes in favor. The decision to abstain from vote is one of the biggest American rebukes of its long-standing ally in recent memory and marked a final chapter in the icy relations between Netanyahu and Obama over the last eight years.

It was unclear if the Obama administration voted as it did mostly to spite Trump, who previously tweeted that Washington should use its veto, and after the vote tweeted that “as to the UN, things will be different after Jan. 20th.” […]

    Next thing you know, the Daily Stormer will be promoting Netanyahu. DS might even put his picture on the front page.

    There are intriguing thoughts that the oligarch-tied global political Jewish mafias may themselves be moving against the ‘State of Israel’, via their long-standing tool Barack Obama … who may be seeking to become the UN Secretary General

    Possibly we have a USA becoming pariah under a Congress-hampered Trump, & the current aggressively expansive State of Israel, both to be ‘sacrificed’ for the NWO New World Order, in what the global public will imagine is a ‘victory’

    The radical Jewish writer who died in 2016, Barry Chamish, claimed for years that the ruling class of Israel – Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu etc – were NWO elites who would one day join in destroying Israel for the sake of imposing fascist global NWO

    Possibly this is the purpose of the recent joint moves by Barack Obama, John Kerry & the UK’s Theresa May, ‘surprising’ everyone by changing course to put through anti-Israel resolutions at the United Nations, with the support of Russia & China & even Kiev Ukraine which has a Jewish Prime Minister, Volodymyr Groysman

    A popular writer replicated on ZeroHedge, David Haggith aka ‘Knave Dave’, makes a case supporting this
    http://thegreatrecession.info/blog/obamas-twilight-moves/

    Haggith notes that:

    Obama is using his final months of the presidency to diminish US presidential powers & increase UN powers

    Obama’s trans-Pacific trade pact is set to strip the US of sovereignty by handing many trade regulatory powers to the UN

    Obama has moved to diminish US control over environmental regulations, putting regulatory power more in the hands of the UN

    Obama has quickly gathered a global axis of leading influential nations to slap down Israel’s aggression against Palestinians, much to the cheer of not only Palestinians & Arabs, but the world

    Obama & Kerry are launching a major Mid-East peace plan with Palestinian State capital in East Jerusalem, on 15 January, in Obama’s last five days in office

    Knave Dave Haggith sees Obama preparing the way to become ‘peacemaker’ UN Secretary General

    Whom we can see presiding over our ‘New World Order’ … which can be seen as satisfying the global billions by a pretend ‘victory over Israel’ that yet leaves the core oligarch-tied global Jewish mafias in privileged position

    Brabantian- Wow! I’ve been tearing my hair out trying to figure out why the split between Hassidim and the Reform crowd and in fact you’re saying they’ve all jumped the Zion ship in favor of the NWO. Still, the reform crowd was solidly behind Clinton. All my zionist leaning friends hate Trump, but the Chabbad group backs him completely. Is it another one of their bet on both sides and you always win moves?
