In early January during the massacre by the IDF on the Palestinians, The UN Security Council voted on resolution 1860 (2009)
"SECURITY COUNCIL CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE, DURABLE, FULLY RESPECTED CEASEFIRE IN GAZA LEADING TO FULL WITHDRAWAL OF ISRAELI FORCES
Resolution 1860 (2009) Adopted by 14 in Favour, Abstention by United States;"
Afterwards Israel's Olmert went on record with his telling of how this happened?
"I said, 'Get me President Bush on the phone.' They said he was in the middle of giving a speech in Philadelphia. I said I didn't care. 'I need
to talk to him now.' He got off the podium and spoke to me." According to Olmert, Bush was clueless. "He said: 'Listen. I don't know about it. I
didn't see it. I'm not familiar with the phrasing.’ I told him the United States could not vote in favor. It cannot vote in favor of such a
resolution. He immediately called the secretary of state and told her no."
Now South African Deputy Foreign Affairs minister Fatima Hajaig at a pro-Palestinian rally in Lenasia said Jews "control [America], no matter which
government comes into power, whether Republican or Democrat, whether Barack Obama or George Bush".
"Control of America, just like the control of most Western countries, is in the hands of Jewish money, and if Jewish money controls their country
then you cannot expect anything."
If in fact Olmert is speaking the truth about what transpired to stop America to vote for this UN resolution, is South Africa's Fatima Hajaig correct
that even if Obama was already president at the time of the attack on Gaza, would Obama also have instructed Hillary Clinton to abstain from the vote,
or would he have joined the other 14 members in voting for the resolution, or would he have vetoed the resolution altogether?
Would Obama have left the stage where he was making a speech, and taken instruction about voting in the Security Council from Olmert?
