First Congressman Joe Walsh harshly criticized President Barack Obama for not telling the truth about the effects of not raising the Debt Limit (that if Social Security and Medicare payments were not made it would be his choice).
Now a press release from Walsh calls the Obama Administration to task for implying that Jerusalem is not part of Israel:
Rep. Walsh Slams Obama for Amateur Foreign Policy
Walsh Calls Out President Obama after State Department Gaffe
WASHINGTON – Rep. Walsh (IL-08) issued the following statement in response to a release from the State Department announcing the visit of Acting Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Kathleen Stephens to “Algeria, Qatar, Jordan, Jerusalem, and Israel,” implying that Jerusalem is not part of Israel.
Furthermore, today, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland refused to even acknowledge whether Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel, despite a 1995 U.S. law that states it is.
Walsh stated: “This latest stunt by the Obama Administration is nothing new—it merely reveals what we have known all along: President Obama is no friend to Israel. H
“His refusal to recognize Jerusalem as part of Israel, let alone its Capital, is amateur foreign policy of the worst sort.
“The President needs to stop humiliating and denigrating our allies, like Israel, with foolish stunts like this.
“The time to be an ‘honest broker’ is long over.
“We are Israel’s ally, and it is ours.
“In fact it is our best and strongest ally in the Middle East, and the President needs to start treating it like it is.
“When is President Obama going to stop throwing our allies under the bus and cozying up to our enemies?”
