Those Who Curse Israel….
“Jewish Home leader calls for application of Israeli law to Ma’ale Adumim and other areas, says a terrorist state will be forced on Israel.”
Israelis are reacting as they should and this is what Obama was hoping for. Obama wanted to kill the possibility of peace during a Trump administration. If the Israelis annex Judea and Samaria now then there is little hope for a future Palestinian state. Perhaps that is the best outcome though.
The Palestinians want the conflict to continue indefinitely. They have no desire for peace. At least, if annexation took place by Israel, the matter of land would be settled and the Israelis could just concern themselves with security which would still be the case if the Palestinians were given their own state. I believe God used Obama to bring this about. He did not want to see Israeli land divided again. The UN will still try mind you, but if Israel has the will the UN will fail.
Large shipments tied to nuclear negotiations make it harder to track what Tehran does with the money.
Think it is fair to say Obama was a better ally to Iran then he was to Israel.
“Security Council may push additional measure in days between Paris peace conference and end of Obama’s term, PM reportedly tells cabinet.”
“The issue of terrorism is included in the resolution but its weight is slight (as opposed to extensive dealing with the settlements, which are represented as the main obstacle to peace). Moreover, for the most part the terminology used in dealing with terrorism is general and vague. The resolution does not explicitly refer to Palestinian terrorism, the Palestinian terrorist organizations (especially Hamas) and popular terrorism and violence(the so-called “popular resistance”).”
“Widely condemned by Israelis from all sides, UNSC Resolution 2334 was seen as a stab in the back. It was not; it was a stab in the chest. And, given the hostility of the Obama administration and members of the Security Council, it was predictable and unavoidable. Ironically, however, the resolution may have created the basis for legitimizing Israeli annexation and sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.”
I think that was the point of this whole fiasco. To kill the possibility of peace during the Trump administration. This was orchestrated by Obama so that Trump could not make peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
The INSS appraised the threats that Israel confronts from Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran: “Iran is more dangerous over the medium and long term with the global legitimization of its nuclear program.”
“It’s the third category of “settlement” that is the most contentious and that Security Council Resolution 2334 explicitly condemns: East Jerusalem. This is not just scandalous; it’s absurd. America acquiesces to a declaration that, as a matter of international law, the Jewish state has no claim on the Western Wall, the Temple Mount, indeed the entire Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. They belong to Palestine.
The Temple Mount is the most sacred site in all of Judaism. That it should be declared foreign to the Jewish people is as if the Security Council declared Mecca and Medina to be territory to which Islam has no claim. Such is the Orwellian universe Israel inhabits.
At the very least, Obama should have insisted that any reference to East Jerusalem be dropped from the resolution or face a U.S. veto. Why did he not? It’s incomprehensible — except as a parting shot of personal revenge on Benjamin Netanyahu. Or perhaps as a revelation of a deep-seated antipathy to Israel that simply awaited a safe political interval for public expression.”
I believe it is the latter. Obama is simply an antisemitic person. There is no other explanation. He waited for an opportunity where the political fallout would be low and he attacked (over the holidays no less). Of course, Obama is not a very religious person. He will find however, when he meets God for judgement he made a very big mistake.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3
I don’t think there is any US President who has done more to curse Israel then Obama, even Carter would be a distant second. I would not want to be in Obama’s shoes right now or ever.
