Karl Rove: Obama Has Treated Netanyahu With ‘Contempt’

Tuesday on Fox Business Channel’s “Varney & Company,” while discussing the United Nations security resolution criticizing Jewish settlement construction in the West Bank and the Obama administration’s failure to veto it, Fox News political analyst Karl Rove said, “This is the contempt with which president Obama has treated Prime Minister Netanyahu in the past, and I think this is aimed more at Netanyahu than it is Trump.”

Rove said, “Yes, and very dangerous to the United States and to our ally, Israel, because this is the first time that the United States has allowed a resolution to go forward that basically calls for Israel to return to the ’67 borders which have widely been held to be indefensible and would leave Israel as insecure. And this is the first time, I mean, it literally says Israel is illegally holding this territory that it won as a result of the ’67 and ’73 wars. And this is the first time that this has ever happened. Parting shot by the administration. I think it’s less aimed at Donald Trump than it is by the Obama Administration aimed at Netanyahu. Remember, Netanyahu is invited to the White House, taken to the private quarters of the White House, not given a glass of water, not given a meal and hot boxed for hours and then allowed to leave at the door of the White House where they take out the trash. And the press is alerted that he’s going to be leaving. Remember the photograph of him leaving the big mounds of trash in plastic bags to his side.”

“Well, this is the contempt with which President Obama has treated Prime Minister Netanyahu in the past, and I think this is aimed more at Netanyahu than it is Trump, but it is going to be, again, bad for the United States, bad for Middle East peace,” he continued. “From now on the Israelis are going to be in a negotiation with the Palestinians where the Palestinians say we no longer have a U.N. resolution that gives you the authority to trade land for peace. We now have a U.N. resolution that obligates you to give up all the territory as an opening condition of any discussions.”
