US House to vote on United Nations resolution against Israel

  • Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit

"We don't need to annex all of [the West Bank.] We want the worldwide community to recognize Israel, as well as Israel's future borders", she said. It was remarkable as a victory for Freedom, Religious Liberty and the survival of the Jewish People in their land.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has distanced the United Kingdom from the United States over John Kerry's condemnation of Israel.Kerry said in a speech on Wednesday that new Israeli settlements on the West Bank and East Jerusalem pose a threat to any two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians, a solution that the USA and its allies have long supported.Earlier Friday, a spokesman for May said Kerry, who delivered a major address on Middle East peace earlier in the week, focused too heavily on settlements in disputed territory and not enough on terrorism.But the real tension, said Jessica Rosenblum, vice president of communications at the self-described pro-Israel, pro-peace J Street nonprofit, is between those who support decades of policy for a two-state solution, and the administrations of Netanyahu and, soon, Trump.Secretary of State John Kerry made clear Wednesday that the Obama administration has reached the limits of its patience regarding Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

This resolution also ignored the historical fact that Jewish people have been occupying east Jerusalem and praying at the holy Wailing Wall for thousands of years, yet such occupation is considered illegal by the UN. It condemns and disenfranchises Jewish Presence in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem where Jews have lived as the only continuous presence over the millennia. He also reportedly phoned the foreign minister of New Zealand who had submitted the resolution to the Security Council, warning him that it would mean a "declaration of war". Only the deliberately blind and deaf who refuse to believe the stated and repeated goals of Palestinian leadership and much of the Arab world (and Iran) to eliminate Israel still think that the key to peace and stability lies exclusively with that country.

Second, the American Jewish Right is under the delusion that its perspective on Israel is more important and more correct than those of Israel's citizens and leaders themselves.

While the Palestinian leadership has hailed the resolution as "historic", Israeli officials have referred to it as "shameful".

Al-Einein contended that such policy positions would lead to Palestinian bloodshed throughout Judea and Samaria. They are not only undermining the existence of Judaism in Israel (the little Satan), but that of Christianity (the big Satan) as well.

New Samsung UHD Blu-ray Player Adds Bluetooth Headphone Connectivity
The company just announced three new audio products, each of which will include Ultra High Quality (UHQ ) sound. Plus, its "Private Cinema" viewing mode lets you send audio to a pair of Bluetooth headphones instead the TV.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has since delivered a lengthy speech in which he, again, criticized the settlements and laid out his vision of what a future Israeli-Palestinian peace deal could look like.

In the wake of the heinous terrorist attack at the Berlin Christmas market, are Jewish homes more of a danger to their countries than Islamist sponsors of terrorism? "Another way for Australia to demonstrate its unswerving support for Israel, as the Middle East's only liberal, pluralist democracy, might be to join any move by the Trump administration to move its embassy to Jerusalem", Mr Abbott wrote on Monday. That is hard to comprehend when one considers what has been happening in Syria and Iraq.

Furthermore, this resolution legitimized the Palestinian Authority's attempts to internationalize the disputes between Israel and the Palestinians and avoid the necessary direct peace talks between the two parties. By doing so, the United States simply acted in accordance with worldwide law and the global consensus of almost 50 years.

It was bad enough that Obama and Kerry, as usual, drew moral equivalence between Israel's construction and overt Palestinian terrorism, but they went further, clearly casting Israel as the aggressor in the ongoing conflict with the Palestinians.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio accused the Obama administration of "Denying Israel's right to exist", and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz called Obama "one of the worst foreign-policy presidents ever". What they have done is made a volatile dispute, all the more so, which could result in more violence, potentially provoking another Intifada or worse. But the damage they have inspired and codified could have unimaginable consequences.
