(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) A New York Post editorial published Sunday slammed the Obama administration for its recent Israel policy.

Headed “Obama deserts an ally in wartime,” the editorial said, “What kind of ally refuses to send you desperately needed weapons when you’re smack in the middle of a war? Apparently, that’s what the Obama folks did with Israel, which is caught up fighting with Hamas. It’s unforgivable.”

The editorial was referring to the Obama administration’s recent decision to hold a shipment of Hellfire missiles meant for the Israeli Air Force.

“If Israel suffers, and its terrorist enemies are emboldened, America’s own security interest abroad will be harmed,” the editorial said.

The Post added, “The president is letting his personal pique get the better of him. It”s unwise. And certainly no way treat a friend in wartime.”
