<p>Appearing on MSNBC early Tuesday afternoon, guest and former Obama State Department official Joel Rubin lashed out at Israel&rsquo;s reaction to the settlements vote at the United Nations (UN), comparing Israel to his misbehaving eight-year-old daughter venturing outside in the cold without proper clothing to avoid becoming sick.</p>

<p>Rubin also bolstered his attack on Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu&rsquo;s government by arguing that UN critics are just bitter with <strong>&ldquo;the uncomfortable truth&rdquo;</strong> that condemning Israel for building settlements enjoys massive support with a unanimous vote on Friday at the UN (with an abstention by the U.S.).</p>
