Comedian Roseanne Barr fired at President Barack Obama in Twitter posts during the Christmas weekend in response to the United Nations resolution passed last week with the intention of hurting Israeli — United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334.
Obama was behind the authoring and push of U.N Resolution 2334 and the resolution only passed because Obama told the U.S. delegation to abstain from voting. If the U.S. had vetoed this resolution, it would have failed because the U.S. is a permanent member on the U.N.’s security council and if a permanent member vetoes a resolution, it will automatically fail.
But the U.S. didn’t and many are blaming Obama. Israel says they have concrete evidence proving with certainty that Obama helped “craft” the resolution and assisted the U.N. to get it passed. Many are seeing the move as a great betrayal of Israel — including Roseanne Barr.
In her three Twitter comments, Roseanne Barr compared Obama’s actions to with the U.N. to what the Nazi’s did in Germany (passing their anti-Jewish laws right before a Jewish holiday).
Obama isn’t the only one to blame for anti-Israel resolution, Barr said. “Liberal US Jews” are also to blame for the current problem.
Her last message was for all those who are wishing evil upon Israel:
The resolution makes building settlements there illegal, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he’s not going to abide by the resolution. In fact, the Israeli government has said that settlements currently being developed in East Jerusalem will continue as planned.
