Newt Gingrich: Obama Is ‘Waging War’ On Israel

Newt Gingrich, blasting President Obama’s policies in the Middle East, alleged Monday that the administration is failing to adequately support Israel.

Newsmax reported that the former House speaker asked on Twitter: “Why is the Obama team waging war against Israel? Why are they taking steps to isolate and then kill a democracy and an ally?”

Gingrich cited Obama’s decision to not order the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to veto a Security Council resolution that criticized Israeli occupation of the West Bank and east Jerusalem. Palestine also claims ownership of the regions, which have been scenes of conflict for decades.

Gingrich followed up with another tweet declaring that “President-elect Trump must prepare a comprehensive offensive for Jan. 29 to undo the damage to Israel the Obama team is inflicting.” The Georgia Republican did not mention the United States’ financial backing of Israel, which amounts to billions of dollars a year.

Newsmax noted that, according to CNN, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called out the U.S. ambassador and accused Obama of supporting the resolution. “We have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed,” Netanyahu said.
