Miami, FL – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement today regarding the Obama Administration’s decision to abstain from the U.N. Security Council’s vote on an anti-Israel resolution and thereby allow it to pass:
“With today's abstention, President Obama has aided and abetted radical, anti-Semitic forces at the U.N. and cemented his legacy as the most anti-Israel U.S. president in history.
"Israel is our closest ally in the region and the only free market democracy in the Middle East, and we should not abandon them. I intend to work with the incoming administration to ensure U.S. taxpayer dollars do not continue to fund efforts to isolate the Jewish state of Israel."
