Ted Cruz says the FAA's flight ban was Obama's secret anti-Israel plot...wtf

http://www.vox.com/2014/7/24/5933557/ted-cruz-israel-faa-flight-ban

"The Obama administration is the most anti-Israel administration this government has ever had," Cruz said. He asked why air traffic to Israel, rather than Pakistan, Yemen, or Ukraine was cut off. "The timing was at the exact moment Kerry was there trying to strong-arm Israel into stopping their efforts to shut down Hamas’s rockets and tunnels," he continued. Essentially, Cruz argued, Obama was trying to choke off Israel's tourism industry until it consented to a Gaza cease-fire.

Yet Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) saw something even darker at work. "The facts suggest that President Obama has just used a federal regulatory agency to launch an economic boycott on Israel, in order to try to force our ally to comply with his foreign-policy demands," he said in a Wednesday afternoon statement

3. how can he get away with these lies?

why does no one throw this, for example, in his face? (and it's far from the only example of what a liar Cruz is on this)

(CNN) – Israel's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Ehud Barak said the Obama White House has been the most supportive administration throughout the two countries' diplomatic relations on matters of Israeli security, in an interview to air Monday on "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

Barak -also a former prime minister of Israel - said that though historically administrations from both political parties have supported the Jewish state President Obama's support, security-wise, is unparalleled.


"I think that from my point of view as defense minister they are extremely good, extremely deep and profound. I can see long years, um, administrations of both sides of political aisle deeply supporting the state of Israeli and I believe that reflects a profound feeling among the American people," said Barak. "But I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing in regard to our security more than anything that I can remember in the past."
