American Jews oppose USAID nominee Samantha Power, because of her notorious antisemitic ‘anti-Israel, pro-Iran record’

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Samantha Power is the Biden Administration’s latest anti-Israel appointment. Power was President Obama’s ambassador to the UN. As America’s ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power enabled the passing of the infamous UN Resolution 2334, by not using the U.S veto power to block the resolution. The resolution defined Judea and Samaria and the old city section of Jerusalem as illegally occupied territory. It is considered by many to be a low point in U.S-Israel relations.

 Jewish group opposes USAID nominee, due to ‘anti-Israel, pro-Iran record’

At her confirmation hearing, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asked Samantha Power about U.N. Resolution 2334 and the Obama administration’s decision to abstain from voting in 2016, which allowed it to be passed.

The Zionist Organization of America said on it strongly rejects U.S. President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power.

“Power indeed uses the mantra of ‘human rights’ to condemn and damage human-rights-loving countries, especially the U.S. and Israel, and to instead support murderous hateful regimes,” the ZOA said in a statement. “Confirming Power to head USAID would enable her to spend billions of American tax dollars to put her harmful, hypocritical agenda into effect. ZOA urges the Senate to not confirm Power.”

The head of the USAID is a position Biden elevated to include a seat on the National Security Council.

ZOA added that Power’s “abominable anti-American, anti-Israel, pro-Iran record clearly disqualifies her” from being confirmed and to serve on the NSC.

The organization pointed out her history of anti-Israel statements and actions, including her enabling of “the worst anti-Israel U.N. Security Council Resolution in history,” Resolution 2334. The resolution condemned the Israeli settlements in the so-called “occupied Palestinian territories,” which was defined to include eastern Jerusalem and the Old City of Jerusalem, as violations of international law.

Power has also equated Palestinian terrorist attacks against Jews to “settler violence”; gone on a tirade against Jews living in Israel; blamed Israel for poor humanitarian conditions in the Gaza Strip; and urged the formation of a “military presence” to protect Palestinian Arabs from false Israeli human-rights abuses and genocide. She additionally said that supporting Israel harms U.S. national interests.

At her confirmation hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asked Power about Resolution 2334 and the Obama administration’s decision to abstain from voting in December 2016, which allowed it to be passed unanimously.

Power avoided answering questions about whether she supports the resolution and instead defended the abstention, saying it was “in keeping with President [Barack] Obama’s desire to encourage the parties to avoid unilateral steps, including terrorism, incitement to violence and the building of settlements.”

She then said in response to a follow-up question that she does not believe that the Jewish quarter of Jerusalem is illegally occupied territory.
