Jerusalem mayor says Obama 'surrendered to radical Islam'...
The mayor of the city holy to three world religions delivered a message Thursday to outgoing President Obama: good riddance.
The mayor’s video launches an online campaign to encourage Israelis to sign a letter, which Barkat promises to deliver to Trump officials, urging the new president to make good on his promise to move the U.S. Embassy, from its current location in Tel Aviv, up the hill 50 miles to Jerusalem.
Barkat’s video pitch begins (in Hebrew, with subtitles):
“My fellow citizens, during the last eight years, the Obama administration has pushed for a settlement-building freeze, has surrendered to the Iranians and radical Islam and abandoned Israel to a hostile U.N. resolution.”
The video shows a clip of Obama saying, “There’s no magic to the phrase radical Islam” and another of him urging Israel to stop building settlements.
