Stunning World, UN Passes 6 Resolutions Confirming Everything Is Israel’s Fault

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

The UN General Assembly on Wednesday adopted six resolutions on “Palestinian and Middle East issues,” ranging from Jerusalem to the United Nations special information program on the question of Palestine. The good news is that Israel still has a smattering of friends at the UN: Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, and the United States (and Israel, of course) voted against; Australia, Cameroon, Honduras, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Tonga, and Vanuatu abstained. The rest, 153 world nations that include places where you plan to spend your vacation this summer or buy your car, condemned Israel as being responsible for most of the ills of the planet, especially the Middle East.

For instance, Haya al-Duraie, representing Kuwait which in 1991 expelled 400,000 Palestinians into the desert, expressed support for international efforts that were laying the foundation for security and stability in the region. “However,” the ambassador warned, “the faltering peace process continues to present a danger to the Middle East.”

There you have it.

The UN press release on the assembly votes, includes a section dealing with the “Situation in the Middle East.” One would expect this section to deal with the 500,000 Syrians who died and millions who were uprooted in the past six years; with the war between Shiites and Sunnis in Iraq; with Iran’s nuclear threat and its region-wide terrorism; with Egypt’s paralyzing poverty; perhaps with the discriminatory policies of Saudi Arabia. Alas, one would be wrong. According to the UN General Assembly, there are two main issues threatening stability and peace in the Middle East: Israel’s “occupation” of Jerusalem and Israel’s refusal to hand over the Golan Heights to the Assad Regime.

On Jerusalem, the draft resolution called for “respect for the historic status quo at the holy places of Jerusalem,” and in the spirit of respect referred to the focal area of contention only by its Arabic name, “Haram al-Sharif.” The Assembly reiterated its determination that any actions taken by Israel, “the occupying Power,” to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem “were illegal and therefore null and void and had no validity whatsoever” – note the double invalidation. It also called on Israel to “immediately cease all such illegal and unilateral measures” and stressed that “a comprehensive, just and lasting solution to the question of the City of Jerusalem should take into account the legitimate concerns of both the Palestinian and Israeli sides.”

At least they called it “Jerusalem” and not Al Quds. One point for the home team.

In its resolution on the “Syrian Golan” the Assembly, in the middle of a raging war between the murderous Assad regime that slaughters its own citizens and ISIS and Al Qaeda affiliates who murder everyone else, demanded that “Israel withdraw from all the occupied territory to the line of 4 June 1967 and called on all parties concerned to exert the necessary efforts to ensure the resumption of the peace process.” It should be noted that this example of raging idiocy received only 103 votes in favor, to 6 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Palau, United States), with 56 abstentions.

Pheew…

The Permanent Observer of Palestine – who could become the Palestinian Authority’s UN Envoy, should the Obama Administration pull a fast one (so far so good, though) – said the adoption of the six resolutions by an overwhelming majority of United Nations Member States was “a reflection of the longstanding international consensus in favor of achieving a just, lasting and peaceful solution to the question of Palestine,” and “a clear reaffirmation of the international community’s consensus on the two-State solution.”

He then added that “the despair and hopelessness of the Palestinian people is increasing as the fiftieth year of the illegal Israeli occupation approached.”

See you in fifty years?

The representative of Israel said the resolutions had not only failed to promote dialogue or build trust, they had also created an organizational infrastructure that had abused funding to allow anti-Israel activities to take place under the auspices of the United Nations.

She argued that supporting the resolutions and the inherent bias against Israel would not advance the cause of peace, but instead make peace harder to achieve. The “Special Information Program on the Question of Palestine” offers a misleading narrative of the region and circulates prejudiced materials under the banner of the United Nations, undermining the organization’s integrity and impartiality. It was baffling how the United Nations, which continued to face a severe budgetary deficit, had spent approximately $6.5 million a year on bodies that were dedicated solely to promoting the Palestinian narrative.

Loved the part about the resolutions “undermining the organization’s integrity and impartiality.” Who says Israeli diplomats have no sense of humor?

Trump Team Warns Obama Not to Push Foreign Policies During Transition Period

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

An unidentified Trump national security advisor said, “The machinery of government is going to have to keep grinding as best it can,” but warned that Obama and his aides shouldn’t go seeking new adventures or pushing through policies that clearly don’t match Trump’s positions, according to a report in Politico on Thursday.

The advisor pointed out that in Israel there are worries that Obama may make a move against Israel in the UN Security Council. One possible move is recognizing a Palestinian State.

Obama may also try to push the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal through Congress, which Trump opposes.

The advisor told Politico, “I don’t think it’s in keeping with the spirit of the transition … to try to push through agenda items that are contrary to the president-elect’s positions.”

Obama said that he wants to make sure the transition process is successful.

Jewish Numbers Grow in Congress, Republicans Take Both Houses

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

The number of Jewish lawmakers has grown in the U.S. House of Representatives from 19 to 23 in the wake of Tuesday’s election in the United States.

There are now two Jewish Republicans in the House, and five Jews in total who were newly elected. A Jewish Representative from Florida is stepping down to retire as well.

In the U.S. Senate, the number of Jews has dropped from nine to eight.

The GOP has swept both houses and for the first time in many years, the United States government will be controlled nearly entirely by the Republican party.

In addition, a former Navy SEAL became the first Jewish governor of Missouri, also from the Republican party.

Why Trump Won and Why He Is The Loud Mouth America Needs

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

The results are flowing in and  Trump has done what every press channel called impossible. 

Correction! It was the press along with the Clinton camp that gave Donald Trump this election. As I followed the continuous bashing and digging to find something in Trump’s past to shadow over the actions of Hillary and the actual problems America faces, it became abundantly clear to me what was going on here.

From the onset of this election it was clear just how desperate the liberals were to discredit Trump and the press played along almost as if they were the mice that were following in line and marching in perfect formation as Hillary and company were playing the flute.  It started with a claim that Trump is planning on kicking out all Mexicans when what he actually said was there must be better border control and the criminals coming in from Mexico must stop.

It went on with “Trump said kick out all Muslims” when what was actually said was, no more Muslims from radical countries will be allowed in till the US can fix the security issues.

Then the liberals tried to frighten Jews by taking what Trump did not actually say and throwing hints out that it could be the Jews next.  Watch this piece of garbage propaganda.

Let me explain what happened here.

There are actual problems in the US and one of the threats is the influx of radical Islamic activists masquerading as refugees.

Just in case you don’t understand what this threat is all about, please watch!

There are liberals out there who will call me a racist just for showing this video. They will attempt to blur up the actual problem and say I hate Muslims. NO! There is a REAL problem of radical Islamic terrorists infiltrating the West under the cover of refugees.

Are there others who are really suffering? Absolutely!

Should the world help Muslims who are suffering? Absolutely!

Should the West put their own security at risk? Absolutely NOT!

So the Democrats took what Trump said, perverted it and then put out a video based on what they lied about Trump’s actual statements.

The Democrats don’t want to talk about  the problems, they blur them with fake quotes and personal attacks. They constantly bring up stories with half truths. They talk about a rape case where an anonymous person claimed Trump raped them and even though the claim was dropped, the Democrats needed no proof.

Of course, if the victim was real and Trump did rape someone he would not have gotten my vote!

But that’s exactly the point, it did not happen and this was a clear attempt at scaring people into voting for a crook.

All of a sudden the Democrats forgot about the laws of democracy when it comes to innocent until proven guilty.

That law only exists when talking about Hillary as the FBI closed a blind eye to the email scandal, top secret info sent over private servers, Benghazi tragedy and of course her belligerence towards women her husband raped and took advantage of. 

If you dare mention these actual cases the democrats would simply tell you you are full of ****.

The Democrats were calling Trump a bully and then the tapes of the insane Clinton supporters were released with everything from violence to flag burning and the Democrats responded with, “Trump is a fascist!” 

Then the Democrats excused the violence with claims that Trump is a racist, bigot, anti semite and then some which justified this kind of “righteous” struggle.

 Unfortunately for them, they had absolutely nothing to back up their charges against Trump. Then they brought in the KKK and claimed that Trump supports it. The KKK can vote for whomever they choose, but Trump made it perfectly clear that he categorically condemns racism and certainly the KKK.  OOPS!

Trump is an anti semite? Are you kidding me! 

He must have been very disappointed that both his kids married Jewish and that his daughter converted and is living a Jewish Orthodox life.

Give me a break!

Israel? Nothing to talk about! 

While Clinton was busy shaking her finger at Israel for building in Jerusalem and calling Jews in Judea illegal, Trump was running an event in Jerusalem that called Jerusalem the eternal capital of Israel and promised to move the embassy to Israel’s capital.

While Clinton hires anti Israel advocates such as Blumenthal and Abedin (family ties with the Muslim Brotherhood), Trump’s Israel advisors are Jews who see Jews in Judea as a blessing. Check out this (modified) Jstreet video bashing Trump for being too pro Israel.

Women’s Rights? 

Well, Trump almost lost this one with his big mouth from 11 years ago. His comments were simply disgusting and the kind of talk one hears in a bar. Of course it was a decade ago and the Democrats tried to tie together Trump’s verbal attack against 2 TV personalities who attacked him with the comments from 11 years ago. Have any of you ever played BS? Yup! We called it and Clinton lost the hand! Of course the fact that Clinton took millions from Saudi Arabia, a country that beats women who drive, did not seem to bother the Democrats who waved their hands and dismissed the fact as stupidity.

Bottom line, this was an election between the new religion called liberalism and traditionalism. It is true that Trump is not the best role model for traditionalists, but the difference is, he simply did not buy into the liberal, everything goes philosophy.

NO to abortion NO to making peace with those who seek America’s destruction NO to supporting regimes that burn American flags! NO to illegal immigration YES to focusing on America YES to stopping the flood of cash out to China YES to a strong military YES to strong borders

TRUMP STILL HAS A BIG MOUTH!

But that does not change the fact that he is better for America, Israel and the world. If I had to choose between a big mouth and someone who lies her way through politics, I choose Trump! If I had to choose between a business person who has financial cases against him and a person who got rich on the public’s back in politics, I chose Trump!

If I had to chose between someone who is being charged with making disgusting statements and someone who has actually been involved in so many scandals (sexual through financial) I choose Trump!

America just saved itself from #Libertardation and rock bottom corruption! Let’s hope Trump does what he says he will do and #MakeAmericaGreatAgain!

This Israeli Jew blesses the United States of America!

#GodBlessTheRedWhiteandBlue!

Iranian Professor Refuses to Step on Israeli or American Flags

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Once Upon a Time, the People of Iran and the People of Israel were friends and allies, and then the crazy Islamists and Kakameinis took over the Iranian country, and put an end to that.

While the current Iranian regime threatens to annihilate Israel, there are still sane people in Iran who remember and value what once was.

Iranian professor Sadegh Zibakalam has made it a point to stand up to the Iranian regime and its hatred of Israel.

In a recent video, Professor Zibakalam makes a very clear point of NOT stepping on the Israeli and American flags strategically placed on the floor of his Tehran university.

Last year, the professor spoke out against the Iranian regime’s goal of destroying Israel.

Keep safe professor, and perhaps one day you will see our countries as friends and allies again.

State Dept. Condemns Jerusalem Housing Construction Amid Hints of Obama ‘November Surprise’

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Israeli diplomats are expecting President Barack Obama to force a diplomatic resolution for Israel and the Palestinians at the UN (Obama’s Israel Surprise?). “The White House has been unusually tight-lipped about what, if anything, it might have in mind,” the WSJ noted, “but our sources say the White House has asked the State Department to develop an options menu for the President’s final weeks.”

The Netanyahu cabinet has been extra careful not to provoke the ire of the retiring emperor on the eve of that portion of his term when he no longer needs to worry about the Jewish vote and will be free to follow his heart’s desire on the future of Jewish life in the Middle East. But it’s hard not to provoke Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry when their threshold for irritation seems to be so low. Such as the building permits for 181 new homes in Gilo, in the 1967 liberated territories, approved by the Jerusalem municipality back in 2012 (the permit was merely updated on Wednesday this week).

When asked during his daily briefing about the Israeli most recent 181 violations of mankind’s hope for peace, State Dept. Spokesperson John Kirby said, “We’re deeply concerned by those reports that the local planning and construction committee in Jerusalem approved permits for … 181 housing units and five community center infrastructure projects in Gilo, which is in East Jerusalem. Our policy on settlements, as I said before, is very clear. We strongly oppose settlement activity, which we believe is corrosive to the cause of peace.”

See? On John Kirby’s planet, which he shares with Kerry and Obama, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and his entourage were already on their way to the Knesset in Jerusalem to sign a peace treaty recognizing Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State and maintain good neighborly relations with the Palestinian State next door, when suddenly a text message appeared on his smart phone telling him the Jews had decided to force a mass invasion of 181 Jewish families into Gilo — so the entourage turned back and returned to Ramallah.

“These decisions by Israeli authorities are just the latest examples of what appear to be a steady and systemic acceleration of Israeli settlement activity,” Kirby announced, lamenting that “in just the past few weeks, we have seen reports of an entirely new settlement near Shiloh, a potentially new settlement outpost in the North Jordan Valley, and over 80 Palestinian structures demolished in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.”

To provide much-needed context to the spokesperson’s wailing: the new homes in Shiloh will house the anticipated evacuees from Amona, uprooted by decree of a Supreme Court gone insane. And those illegal structures were an attempt by the Arabs to build without a permit in Area C, governed exclusively by Israel — a clear and intentional attempt by the EU, the US and local Arabs to violate the Oslo agreements.

When Kirby suggested that the above moves “raise serious questions about Israel’s ultimate commitment to a peaceful negotiated settlement with the Palestinians,” he was asked if the Administration might be planning to “draw a line in the sand where it comes to actions that you say or you believe hurt the environment for negotiations for a two-state solution.” He answered: “I think [it] shouldn’t surprise anybody that, as an administration … we routinely talk about the situation in the Middle East and in Israel, and that, obviously, is something I think you know Secretary Kerry’s very focused on, so of course we have discussions about this. But I don’t want to get ahead of those discussions.”

There you have it: the most an Administration official has allowed himself to say regarding his bosses’ post-election plans for Israel.

The WSJ suggested on Monday that the Obama Administration might “sponsor, or at least allow, a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlement construction, perhaps alongside new IRS regulations revoking the tax-exempt status of people or entities involved in settlement building.”

Back in 2011, the Administration vetoed precisely this kind of resolution.

A vindictive President Obama could initiate or at least not vote against the formal recognition of a Palestinian state at the Security Council. It would cause Congress to erupt in a storm of rage, especially if the president uses an executive order to do the wicked deed. Which means the next president could revoke such an order with the stroke of a pen.

Which must make one wonder if a President Hillary Clinton would dare to reverse an executive order recognizing the Palestinian State. What do you think?
