US veto at Security Council may no longer be a given.
With ties growing colder, some in Jerusalem fear Washington’s protection at the UN cannot be taken for granted, and that the midterms may further complicate the picture.
After Jeffrey Goldberg’s infamous “chickenshit” article, it is hard to deny that ties between the Israeli government and the current US administration have reached a nadir. Even Yaacov Amidror, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s former national security adviser, admitted this week that “relations between Israel and the US have deteriorated to an all-time low.”
Worse than the bad language and backroom bickering, though, is the fear that the frosty relationship may mean Israel can no longer rely on Washington’s veto in the Security Council, which has been a rock-solid given in defense of Israel for decades.
It’s no secret that Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama have little love lost for each other, between disputes over an Iranian nuclear deal and building in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

To have more reverence for the US Veto power in the United Nation Security Council than for God of Israel amounts to idolatry. Because the people of Israel put their faith in the righteousness of Washington D.C, rather in their own God.
The People of Israel needs to show respect for what is written in the Hebrew Bible, and put their trust in His promises. God of Israel sent His eternal Son for to rescue mankind from their own sins. A man can escape the coming wrath of God, by surrender to the lordship of Yeshua the Messiah. And this Messiah restored the state of Israel in 1948.
The midterm election victory of the US Republican Party will give Israel some relief from Obamarama. But this will be only temporarily. The state of Israel have had enough problems with Republican leaders in the White House. They can easily be lifted up as idols, whom the Israelis will bow before.
