UN: Jewish Exhibit a Threat, ‘Palestinian Celebration’ Crucial to Peace

A demonstration of Palestinian solidarity. According to the UN, these are just harmless expressions of an emerging nation's yearnings for peace and equality. Nothing as foreboding as an exhibit celebrating the connection between Jews and their homeland.

What right has a UN official, a civil servant, if you will, to announce what’s the best outcome for the two sides? A bit presumptuous, don’t you think?

So far, we’ve asked the Arab citizens of Israel if they wished to become proud citizens of the future Palestinian State, and they gave such a shriek, you could hear them in both Jerusalem and Ramallah. How does Jan Eliasson know that the Arabs of the PA want a state? Did he ask them?

“The Secretary-General and I urge all in the international community to work together to translate the solidarity and desire for peace expressed on this occasion into positive action for security and for justice,” Eliasson said. OK, I support that – but why does it have to be strictly through a Palestinian state? And why should it involve the destruction of the lives of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of Jewish civilians?

I warned you this stuff was difficult.

If I were Mrs. Levy, I’d take my newly gotten permit to the nearest construction guy and get something going. Because should eternal peace come before she gets that roof in place, she, like the rest of us, will be left out in the rain.

    UN declares "International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People"

    UN cancels "Jewish people's 3500-year relationship to the land of Israel" Expo.

    Does that sound right to you?

  2. The State of Israel must explain to the UN and to all nations that God gave to Israel all the Land of Canaan, which includes all the Palestine, as it is written in the Bible, in Genesis 12:6-7, 15:13-21, 17:1-8, 17:19, 26:1-5, 28:10-14 and 35:9-12 and Numbers 34:13-29 and Deuteronomy 3:8, and that Israel possessed that land since the year 1466 BCE, and that the Arabs invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) in the year 635 CE, so that all the Palestine belongs to Israel, including the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and the Arabs are invaders.
    The State of Israel must not make pact with the Palestinians, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 23:32 and 34:12 and Deuteronomy 7:2 that God commanded Israel not to make pact with the inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called "Palestine", and it is written in the Torah, in Numbers 33:50-53 and Deuteronomy 1:8 and 30:5, that God commanded Israel to possess all the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called “Palestine”. Therefore, the peace talks with the Palestinians must cease immediately.

  3. The UN and others who are trying to destroy Israel are spoiled children who never learned the word, No, you can’t have your way. Abba made it clear who gets this land. You(the rest of the world) can’t have it no matter how hard you cry and kick and holler. Thank Master Yahweh that our Jewish brothers and sisters are so steadfast in dealing with this and guiding us to stand with them against those who want to cry, kick and holler.

  4. Gil Gilman says:

    Yori, you're on a roll, I'll let you know when my cadillac arrives, if you'll let me know when the UN becomes something more than a carping dictum with a brain seizure.

  5. I am not surprised by the latest U.N. pro Palestinian rant. I have lost all respect for the U.N. and for that matter, the EU because of their biased views in regards to Israel. To these entities, Israel could do nothing right, short of handing the entire country of Israel over to the Palestinians. They have been a ban wagon leader for years in helping to promote the notion of the poor, downtrodden Palestinians being mercilessly ruled, dictated, and maltreated by the big bad Israelis. Never mind that as we speak Israel is under continuous attack from Palestinian and other terrorist groups. Never mind the fact that countless Israelis have been maimed and murdered by overzealous Arabs who spend their lives bent on the destruction of Israel. Never mind the fact that while Israel has offered countless proposals to finally reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians, the answer is always no and they offer no realistic and legitimate counter offers other than returning to the 67' borders, releasing Palestinian terrorists from prison, and an unconditional approval to continue their murderous ways. Yes, this is indeed hypocrisy at the highest level. But, it's hypocrisy against Israel not the Palestinians.

  6. How does denying history help create peace? Surely they know that eventually, they're going to have to tell the palestinians the truth and until they accept the truth, there will be no peace…unless their plan is to usher in a new world order by rolling out a red carpet dyed with Jewish blood. A mountain of lies covered with a carpet made of genocide is not a solid foundation for peace. What are they really trying to achieve? The coming of Abaddon?

  7. Why is it that we seem to have leaders over the last 40 years or so that claim to have faith in God, but don't believe the word of God? Why is it that despite FACTUAL data that proves that Israel is living in their land much as they did before the diaspora, do nations dismiss it? Why is it that they instead believe lies and believe that Israel is living on Palestinian land when it has been disproven? Many people world wide don’t even believe that Israel EVER lived in Jerusalem.
    Here is a link to see the actual arch in ROME that was made in 70 AD after the sacking of Jerusalem by Titus of Rome. Notice the Menora from the temple in Jerusalem. This is factual evidence left from Rome, the ENEMY of Israel, that still stands in Rome today and can be seen by anyone. This is older than the muslim religion. http://www.scholarscorner.com/museums/titus.htm
    The REASON PEOPLE BELIEVE the lies? These are the end times that Gods word warned us would come. I wrote a small 6 or 7 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

    NO, IT IS NOT RIGHT! I do not stand with Palestine in any way at all.
    Israel will prevail G-d has made that statement and Man can try what he likes but Israel through G-d will prevail. G-d bless Israel .

  11. Is there a UN?, really I don't know.

  12. Larry H. Gentry says:

    The UN is an albatross around the neck of the USA. They are completely useless in almost every way imaginable. They are also, obviously, dangerous to peace throughout the world. The USA needs to get out of the UN completely and have their headquarters moved to a different country where they'll feel more at home. Any suggestions where?

  13. There is nothing here to unite nations ! to divide – yes, to allow bias is no way to heal wounds.

  14. Anonymous says:

    Our problem is internal: Bib behaves like a subordinate, which is something Israel should never permit herself to be. But with leaders like Bibi, LIvni and Lapid, that idiot, this is what is being presented, our weakness. That is why Kerry comes back, he knows he can get a concession. He is no dummy.
    Until Israel demands that the US and EU stop funding the corrupt and illegal PA, this will continue. The UN are noting but an arm of the PA, they are an instrument in the war waged at Israel.When the money stops, the PA will dry up and fly away—

    Time for our PM to act like a man instead of a mouse and demand that the funding stop or there will be no talks, no prisoner releases, there will be no trade, no cheap gas, and there will be no access to the PA territory, and so forth ——Shalom and be well,Zionqueen

  17. The UN General Assembly has a Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People. I demand of the UN General Assembly to have a Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Jewish People. What is good for the Arabs is good for the Jews, right!?

  18. Cheryl White Grandmommy says:


  19. I thought UN is for all but now I stand having a problem. Why join in hatred to Israel. If you really love peace, then love all of us! We have our rights too.

  20. I agree with you, but how many in the UN know Israel's heritage and how many of them really believe in the Lord G-d of Israel?

  21. Of course not but take heart remember David and Goliath?

  22. Maryann Ciesla Lempert says:

    UN-It means UNITED Nations doesn't it? They seem not to be united with Israel.
