Israel Chief Rabbi: We Don’t Need America, We Have God

Responding to Obama’s betrayal, chief rabbi says sometimes it’s good to remember we can’t rely on man

By |

Israel’s Sephardic chief rabbi, Yitzhak Yosef, gave a divine response to the Obama Administration’s gross betrayal of the Jewish state last week.

Days after US President Barack Obama instructed his representative at the United Nations not to veto a dangerous anti-Israel resolution, Yosef expounded on the bright side of the situation.

“Sometimes, we need to be reminded from above that we can count on no one but our Father who art in heaven,” Yosef told a gathering at the Western Wall. “Even America… forsook us last week at the UN.”

According to the resolution, Jews do not belong in the so-called “West Bank” or on the eastern side of Jerusalem. And that includes the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site.

“We mustn’t forget that the hearts of kings and captains are in the hands of the Lord, and we can count on no one but (the Lord),” continued Yosef.
