In an interview with Charlie Rose on PBS, National Security Adviser Susan Rice claimed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress would be “destructive” to U.S.-Israeli relations:
What has happened over the last several weeks, by virtue of the invitation that was issued by the Speaker and the acceptance of it by Prime Minister Netanyahu two weeks in advance of his election, is that on both sides, there has now been injected a degree of partisanship, which is not only unfortunate, I think it’s destructive of the fabric of the relationship.
What a load of excrement!!!
For the past six years, the Obama Administration has done everything in its power to destroy the fabric of U.S.-Israeli relations whether by urging Jewish leaders to put “daylight” between the U.S. and Israel, criticizing Israel for building homes in Jerusalem to which even the Palestinian Authority didn’t object, telling Netanyahu to let himself out of the White House, calling him “chickens#*t” and especially its ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.
And if anyone is making Israel a partisan issue, it is Democrats whether by refusing to adopt a pro-Israel platform at the 2012 DNC until they were publicly shamed to do so and, earlier this month, Democrats in Virginia’s House of Delegates twice walked out of the chamber rather than vote for a resolution in support of Israel.
But let’s consider the source. This is Susan Rice we’re talking about. I’m not sure which is worse – characterizing Benghazi as a spontaneous attack caused by a videotape or stating that Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction. Well, you can add Rice’s latest intervention to the list.
