GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said former President Barack Obama betrayed Israel and said his administration stabbed it in the back during his time in office.
“I say there is nothing we can do that would be worse for the peace process than what the Obama administration did,” Gohmert said on Fox Business Monday. “They stabbed Israel in the back, repeatedly betrayed them, did everything they could to keep Israel from protecting itself from Iranian nuclear threats.” (RELATED: Louie Gohmert Wants Rod Rosenstein Gone)
Gohmert said Israel is prepared for any backlash because of its heavy security and urged America to mimic its technology to help secure its own borders.
“There’ll be protesters, fine. But they have a fence, they have a wall. Seventy-five percent is fence. They also have a wall and fence. And they will be protected,” Gohmert added. “They know how to defend themselves and we ought to take notice.”
“You’re going to see more as time goes on, because they’re going to realize, you know what, we want to be as good of friends because of all the Israeli technology, all the things they’re developing in Israel, we need that,” Gohmert concluded. “Maybe we better recognize their capital too. And I’m thrilled that it’s the United States giving the impetus to other countries do go ahead and recognize what’s been true for 3,000 years.”
