Marco Rubio BLASTS Kerry For Disgusting Anti-Israel Speech EPIC Response
After John Kerry took it upon himself to come after one of our nation's closest allies, Israel, in a drawn out speech that bashed the country shamelessly, Sen. Marco Rubio tore Kerry to bits on Facebook.
"Secretary Kerry today once again decided to cater to the demands of freedom’s enemies and devote an entire speech to disparaging a country that is one of our closest allies," Rubio's Facebook post read. He came after Obama's horrid foreign policy and the backstabbing nature of Obama's recent move against America's ally and incongruent with American values abroad.
"When we fail to take a stand against those that seek to deny #Israel’s right to exist or try to question the Jewish history of Jerusalem, we hurt not just Israel but our own credibility."
"The greatest immediate threat to the future of Israel is not a stalled peace process, or settlements, but the abandonment of the Jewish state by the current U.S. administration at a time when it needs America’s support more than ever," Rubio stated.
Rubio ended by saying, "I look forward to working with President-elect Trump and his incoming team to restore our relationship with Israel to its proper place … This shameful episode in American foreign policy cannot end soon enough."
Rubio was not alone in his disdain for Kerry's speech. Senator Tim Scott also blasted Kerry's speech saying that the proposals brought about by the Obama administration are nothing more than "a path to pain."

Many Republicans in Congress are pushing to defund the UN after the anti-Israel resolution was passed last week.
"Twenty-two percent of the United Nations budget comes from the American taxpayer, and I’m going to lead the charge to withhold funding until they repeal this resolution," said Senator Lindsey Graham in a comment made to CNN.
The Washington Free Beacon spoke to Senator Ted Cruz, who promised congressional action.
"The disgraceful anti-Israel resolution passed by the UNSC was apparently only the opening salvo in the Obama administration’s final assault on Israel," Cruz said. "President Obama, Secretary Kerry, Ambassador Power, and their colleagues should remember that the United States Congress reconvenes on January 3rd, and under the Constitution we control the taxpayer funds they would use for their anti-Israel initiatives."
Thankfully, it's pretty clear that the new administration and Congress coming in do not share these twisted opinions and will likely correct the path that America is on when it comes to the treatment of our allies and our foreign policy.... read more
