Obama and Netanyahu with flags in bkgrndApologists for Israel are denouncing the Obama administration for sneakily ensuring the success of a controversial United Nations resolution.

The pre-Christmas resolution condemned Israeli settlements as illegal, siding with the Palestinians and their claims that Israel is trespassing on their territory in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The resolution passed only after President Barack Obama told the U.S. to abstain rather than veto the resolution, which would have prevented it from passing.

Israel, meanwhile, isn't taking the Obama administration's action lightly.

A spokesman for Netanyahu said Tuesday that Israel has "ironclad" proof that the Obama-led White House drafted the language for the resolution and pushed hard for its passage.

"How does a 400-year-old country tell a 3,800-year-old country where to live?" Ken Abramowitz, a noted Israel defender, asked on Fox News on Tuesday.

David Rubin, an American-born Jew who often talks to Americans Family News about Israel and its security, says has warned for eight years that President Obama is the most "anti-Israel" president in history.

Rubin, DavidObama's anti-Israel sentiment has been restrained by others who support Israel, he says, including many Democrats who don't share the President's views and who condemned the U.S. abstention.

"Now that he's on his way out, in his last month," Rubin says of Obama, "his hands aren't tied anymore."

The resolution isn't just a single anti-Israel vote, Rubin explains, but it presents "international justification" to the rest of the world that Israel can be targeted by the International Criminal Court and a boycott of its products, among other actions, without interference by the United States.  

Western Wall Jerusalem"All of these steps may be taken in the coming days and weeks and months ahead," he predicts.

Speaking on Fox News over the weekend, columnist Charles Krauthammer said the resolution turns the Temple Mount and Western Wall, revered by the Jews, into "foreign territory."

"Western civilization is fighting for its life and Israel is the eastern border of Western civilization," Abramowitz told Fox News.
