On Wednesday, American-born rabbi Yehuda Glick was shot four times by a radical Islamic assailant in an attempted assassination. Glick is a target of Muslim jihadists for his campaigning efforts to allow Jews to worship at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. In response to the attack, Israel closed the Temple Mount until Friday for security reasons, angering Palestinian President Abbas and various other extremists.

How do you think Obama handled this sensitive situation? Did he come to Netanyahu’s defense, fervently supporting the Prime Minister’s move to protect his people? Nope! He did what we all knew he would – he chastised Israel and took sides with the Palestinians.
Secretary of State John Kerry released the following statement on Thursday evening:
“The Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount must be re-opened to Muslim worshipers and I support the long-standing practices regarding non-Muslim visitors to the site. The continued commitment by Israelis, Palestinians, and Jordanians to preserve the historic status quo at this holy site is critical; any decisions or actions to change it would be both provocative and dangerous.”
Once again, we see Obama siding with terrorists.
Kerry also added that he was “in close touch with senior Israeli, Jordanian, and Palestinian leaders to try to de-escalate the situation,” which makes absolutely nobody feel better.
The Obama Administration demonstrates once again that they are the joke of the international community. Way to go, guys!
