President Barack Obama dismissed charges that he had betrayed Israel by failing to veto a harmful United Nations resolution which condemned Israeli construction in the Biblical heartland, telling Israeli media that he had “an obligation to do what I think is right.”
“That kind of hyperbole, those kinds of statements, don’t have a basis in fact,” he told the interviewer, adding that they “may work well with respect to deflecting attention from the problem of settlements.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had responded to the resolution’s passage with a statement blaming Obama for his decision to abstain from the vote, thereby allowing it to pass.
