WATCH: Obama Defiant In Excerpt From Israeli TV Interview
In an excerpt of an interview with Israel’s channel 2 broadcast last night, outgoing US president Barack Obama denied he had stabbed Israel in the back with UNSC resolution 2334, and took stabs at Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu and incoming US president Donald Trump.
The full interview will be screened tonight. I will endeavor to post it when it is available.
Update: The Israeli public won’t be buying it.
Fifty-seven percent of Jewish Israelis said Obama has been “moderately unfriendly” or “not friendly at all,” with only 11% or Arab Israelis sharing that belief. Conversely, 22% of the Jewish public said the outgoing president had been friendly while 64% or Arab Israelis said the same.
