Netanyahu is not taking the vote kindly. He has summoned the US ambassador to Israel to a meeting on Christmas night so he can vent his anger at the US.
Israel: humbled Netanyahu places hopes in Trump
In a series of statements, Netanyahu has criticized the Obama Administration for letting Resolution 2334 pass Friday by abstaining, using unprecedented language that has turned a policy disagreement into a personal vendetta.
"From the information that we have, we have no doubt that the Obama Administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed," Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday.
In turning his anger toward Israel's closest and most important ally, Netanyahu has underplayed the embarrassment that all 14 other nations on the Security Council voted in favor of the measure. Those votes came from countries that Netanyahu loves to boast of cultivating relations with, including Russia and China and nations across the developing world.
Netanyahu is nothing more than an authoritarian bully who retains his leadership post by selling fear to his Israeli supporters. In the USA he draws his strength from those Christian fundamentalists who believe that Jews are the "chosen people" and that the Land of Israel must be saved for the Jewish people. But likewise, he seems to believe that Jewish-Americans should answer to him rather than President Obama. The US News and World Report last year published an article, Bibi King of the Jews, that related to Netanyahu's criticism of the Iran nuclear agreement and that American Jews should oppose Obama.
Since Reince Priebus has now called Trump "the new King" in reference to a savior with the promise of salvation to all mankind, we can expect the two kings to share worldviews on how to manipulate public opinion.
