New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D) declared “I am really ashamed of the President of the United States and his administration” and wondered “why is the Obama administration so afraid?” of Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.
“I am really ashamed of the President of the United States and his administration that they are pursuing the deal that is dangerous for the people of Israel” he stated.
Hikind continued, “You look at the world, you look at what’s going on in the Middle East, you look at America’s strength and leadership, it is missing in action. Israel is going to entrust John Kerry, Obama…six weeks, six weeks this president has been undermining the Prime Minister of Israel. What did the Prime Minister of Israel do today? He made a speech. why is the Obama administration so afraid?”
He also criticized members of Congress who criticized Netanyahu’s speech and boycotted, saying “they were going to attack Netanyahu regardless…they would have been there if circumstances were different, if there was a Republican president, if things were turned around politically, they would have been there.”
