Rep. Peter King (R-NY) on Wednesday accused President Barack Obama of using his final years in office to “get back at Israel” as part of an effort to fulfill “all of his liberal fantasies,” according to BuzzFeed.
“I think he has two years to go, and he’s right now sort of fulfilling all of his liberal fantasies,” King said during an interview on “The John Gambling Show” on Hackensack, N.J. radio station WNYM. “And whether it’s closing Guantanamo, whether it’s talking about global warming, implying that those of us who are concerned about terrorism are exaggerating it for some partisan purpose, whether he can finally get back at Israel for the fact that they never accepted his apology tour to Iran and the Arab countries back in 2009 — he’s doing it.”
“And he’s basically saying ‘to hell with everybody else,’” King added.
King also condemned Democratic lawmakers who have threatened to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s scheduled speech before Congress in early March.
“To boycott our closest ally when there’s a war going on which could involve the destruction of Israel — when you have ISIS, you have Iran, you have these Islamist powers, both Shi’ite and Sunni in the Middle East, radical Muslims — to be turning our back on the leader of the only democracy in the region and the country which has always stood with us, it’s unforgivable,” King said.
