Alan Dershowitz, the long time Professor of Law at Harvard University, and a self-avowed liberal Democrat has had enough of our current president, blasting Barack Obama as “appalling” for stabbing our Israeli allies in the back.
In a move widely panned by members on both sides of the political aisle, the Obama administration last week opted to abstain and essentially support a UN resolution condemning Israel.
Dershowitz is so ticked off at the move that he even used a term that got President-elect Donald Trump in trouble during the debates.
“What he (Obama) did was so nasty,” the professor said, before concluding that Obama will be considered “one of the worst foreign policy presidents ever,” and an “appalling, appalling president.”
Via Fox News Insider:
“Many [liberal Democrats] like me who support his domestic policy think he was an appalling… president when it came to foreign policy,” Dershowitz said.
He said the president once invited him to the White House and asked personally for his support, promising that he would “always have Israel’s back.”
“I didn’t realize what [Obama] meant is that he would have their back to stab them,” Dershowitz said, “This will make peace much more difficult to achieve because the Palestinians will now say ‘we can get a state through the UN’.”
Dershowitz also criticized Obama for “tying” President-elect Donald Trump’s hands on the issue during his lame duck period, calling the move “nasty” and a “bait and switch.”
When Obama was negotiating the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, Dershowitz pointed out that the President had become an “abject failure.”
“If you judge president Obama by his own standards, he is an abject failure when it comes to international relations,” he explained. “Forget about my standard or yours. By his own standard he is an abject failure when it comes to dealing with Iran.”
Dershowitz appears to have realized things haven’t gotten much better since then, declaring that Obama “hurt America so badly.”
Thanks for finally coming to that realization eight years into his presidency.
