Barack Obama Opposing Israeli Settlements Anti-Semitic?

The Washington Times published, Obama’s refusal to veto anti-Israel U.N. vote ranked most anti-Semitic incident of 2016.

Later reporting in The Times Of Israel-- "President Barack Obama will not allow any further United Nations measures critical of Israel to pass during the remainder of his term, deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes promised."

Because of the presidents inaction on the UN measure this has become the hottest issue of the week boiling over into the next administration. There's certainly a lot of passion on both sides of the issue. With all the rhetoric flying around it makes it very hard to dig down trying to find the historical truth. Since neither side are a bunch of innocents it makes the task more difficult.

There are always two sides to every story when it comes to history. Although I'm sure many will disagree-- here are two videos which I feel endeavor to present a more accurate accounting. Some may accuse them of being biased. I leave it to readers to decide for themselves.
