I don”t think I’ve seen a more telling example of the arrogance of the Obama Administration (and, frankly, of the statist elite in general.)
When informed about the Israeli decision, Obama, who has a famously contentious relationship with the prime minister, didn’t even bother getting angry. He told several people that this sort of behavior on Netanyahu’s part is what he has come to expect, and he suggested that he has become inured to what he sees as self-defeating policies of his Israeli counterpart.
In the weeks after the UN vote, Obama said privately and repeatedly, “Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are.”
This is the same attitude they have about you. You don’t know your own best interests, so you need them to tell you what they are. You are not responsible enough to own a firearm. You are not responsible enough to decide what kind of light bulb to use. You are not responsible enough to choose a non-smoking bar. You are not responsible enough to pick your own car. You are not responsible enough to choose your own health care.
Israel isn’t responsible enough to run their own country.
