11-30-2016: UN General Assembly supports resolution ignoring Jewish ties to Temple Mount

Out of the UN’s 193 member states, 147 voted in favor, seven voted against and eight abstained.

The UN General Assembly overwhelming voted to support a resolution that used solely Muslim language to describe the Temple Mount.

Out of the United Nation’s 193 member states, 147 voted in favor, seven voted against and eight abstained.

The Jerusalem resolution was one of six resolutions condemning Israel and supporting the Palestinians that the General Assembly approved on Wednesday, as part of its special annual session for the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which began on Tuesday.

All the European member states present in the room voted in favor of the resolution – countries such as France, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom.

The states that opposed the Jerusalem resolution were the United States, Canada, Israel, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Naura and Palu.

Those that abstained were Australia, Guatemala, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay and Vanuatu.

The Jerusalem resolution, numbered A/71/l.22, addresses the situation in Jerusalem and its holy sites and states that “any actions taken by Israel, the occupying power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever, and calls upon Israel to immediately cease all such illegal and unilateral measures.”

The text calls on Israel to have “respect for the historic status quo at the holy places of Jerusalem” and “urges all sides to work immediately and cooperatively to defuse tensions and halt all provocations, incitement and violence at the holy sites in the city.”

The resolutions were introduced by a group of mostly Arab countries, including Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq and Lebanon, and the Palestinian Authority, but also some Asian countries, such as Indonesia and Lao People’s Democratic Republic, as well as a few African countries.

Resolutions A/71/l.18 and A/71/l.19, the first in the series, pledge respectively to support the UN’s Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People in its efforts to end the Israeli “occupation,” and extend member state’s cooperation with and support to the division for Palestinian Rights of the UN Secretariat.

Draft resolution a/71/l.20, also adopted on Wednesday, with 153 votes in favor of it, seven abstentions and seven negative votes, aims to disseminate information on the Palestinian narrative of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as well as on all the activities of the United Nations system relating to the question of Palestine. The resolution also states the need to organize and promote “fact-finding news missions for journalists to the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and Israel.”

In resolution A/71/l.21, the General Assembly calls for “a peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine.” It also “calls upon Israel, the occupying power, to comply strictly with its obligations under international law, including international humanitarian law, and to cease all of its measures that are contrary to international law and all unilateral actions in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem.”

The last draft text adopted by the assembly, resolution A/71/l.8, adopted by a vote of 103 in favor, six abstentions and 56 votes against it, demands that Israel withdraw from all of the Golan to the line of June 4, 1967, and hand it over to Syria.

Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said, “Today’s resolutions are yet another example of the daily bias Israel faces in the UN.

“At the same time that Israel is celebrating the historic decision to reestablish the Jewish state in our homeland, the UN continues to fund organizations and pass resolutions that do nothing to better the lives of the Palestinians.”

The United States voted against all the resolutions. The representative of the US Mission at the General Assembly session spoke out against the “disproportionate number of resolutions condemning Israel.”

He further stated that voting on these resolutions “damages the prospect for peace.”

“All parties to the conflict have responsibility to end the conflict,” he said.

The US representative added that his country is “disappointed” that the General Assembly chooses to single out Israel, which is “counterproductive.”

The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is observed by the United Nations on November 29 each year, the date marking the anniversary of the General Assembly’s 1947 adoption of the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine.

Short Update: Expect Daily Posts About what the UN is covering LIVE

November 29th the UN was covering the conflict in the Middle East between the Palestinians and the citizens of Israel and where the peace process might go if there is a resolution presented by Palestine that would go up for voting in the next couple of days / weeks. November 30th however covered Korea and Issues in controlling the AIDS Virus worldwide among other issues concerning the war in Syria. Each day from here on out, I will be giving an update (this is besides other updates) on what coverage the UN is broadcasting off their website and whether or not it concerns Israel and the Peace Process. 

As soon as I find out any information concerning any type of voting on Palestine, where "Peace & Safety" is mentioned at the same time parting Yahweh's land (fulfilling part of Joel 3:2), I will immediately let you know. 

I hope to see soon some kind of voting that would fulfill this. So please keep watch when I make once daily updates on the daily schedule of what the UN is covering LIVE. 

May Yahweh bless you abundantly these very last days, Shalom.

Jimmy Carter Urges Barack Obama To Divide The Land Of Israel At The United Nations Before January 20th

In his New York Times editorial, one of the steps that Carter says that Obama should take is to give formal U.S. diplomatic recognition to a Palestinian state…

I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short. The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership.

Of course such a move would largely just be window dressing. The new Trump administration could very quickly revoke diplomatic recognition, and so if Barack Obama really wanted to “leave a legacy” in the Middle East he would have to do something that Donald Trump would not be able to undo.

Later on in his editorial, Carter suggested just such a thing. He urged Obama to support a UN Security Council resolution that would set forth firm parameters for resolving the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians…

The Security Council should pass a resolution laying out the parameters for resolving the conflict. It should reaffirm the illegality of all Israeli settlements beyond the 1967 borders, while leaving open the possibility that the parties could negotiate modifications. Security guarantees for both Israel and Palestine are imperative, and the resolution must acknowledge the right of both the states of Israel and Palestine to live in peace and security. Further measures should include the demilitarization of the Palestinian state, and a possible peacekeeping force under the auspices of the United Nations.

11-30-2016: 'Save peace', urges UN chief

UN Secretary General warns that hopes for a two-state solution are fading fast.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday warned that hopes for a two-state solution to solve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) are fading fast.

Marking the "International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People," which the UN holds annually on November 29, Ban spoke out against Israeli “settlement building” and home demolitions which, he claimed, undermine Israeli democracy.

But he also criticized the Palestinians' "paralyzing lack of unity" and warned that their infighting has damaged their own democracy and the rule of law.

Ban told both sides that unless they act to revive hopes for peace, "they risk entrenching a one-state reality."

Ban hailed a July report by the Middle East Quartet -- the United Nations, European Union, Russia and the United States -- as a blueprint for revived talks.

The report called on Israel to halt its construction in Judea and Samaria, but also called on the PA to stop inciting to violence and terrorism.

Israel rejected the report due to the fact that it equated between PA incitement to terrorism and Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria.

Similarly, PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas called on the UN Security Council to reject the report, saying it "does not further the cause for peace."

 Peace talks between Israel and the PA have been frozen since 2014, when an American initiative failed after the PA unilaterally applied to join international treaties and conventions in breach of the conditions of the talks.

In recent months, France has attempted to jumpstart the peace process with an initiative aiming to convene an international peace conference by the end of the year.

Israeli officials recently reiterated Israel’s firm opposition to the initiative. Israel insists that the only way to achieve peace is through direct talks with the PA, which the PA refuses.

Commentary update: PA says it will submit anti-settlement resolution within days...

My Commentary: I believe this is the beginning of the end and this is what we need to watch out for. If the Palestinian Authority is going to submit a resolution within "days" - this will be brought to  the UN Security Council and then Obama will NOT veto it forcing peace on Israel... Every morning, noon and night I will be watching carefully for the PA to submit for a resolution at the UN Security Council. 

So please watch out for major alerts on my blog in the next week or two. Time is truly running out. 

Shalom, see you in heaven very soon.

EXTREMELY URGENT!!!!!!! PA says it will submit anti-settlement UN resolution within days

Just hours after the Palestinian leadership said it plans to move forward a UN Security Council resolution condemning settlements, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday he expects US President Barack Obama will not support action against Israel at the world body.

“[We will] begin to submit a resolution condemning settlements to the UN Security Council in the coming days,” Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki told the Voice of Palestine, the official PA radio station.

On numerous occasions over the past few months, the leadership, including PA President Mahmoud Abbas, said it intends to submit a resolution.

If such a resolution is brought before the Security Council, all eyes will be on Obama to see how the US acts.

In 2011, the US vetoed a UNSC resolution condemning the settlements. By contrast, in 1979 – under president Jimmy Carter – it abstained on an anti-settlement vote, allowing it to pass.

PLO Executive Committee Member Ahmad Majdalani told The Jerusalem Post on Monday he believes the US will abstain this time, as well.

“We have ongoing contacts with the US administration about the forthcoming UNSC resolution and our assessment is that the US will abstain from taking a position,” he said.

Netanyahu, at a memorial ceremony on Mount Herzl for soldiers killed in the 1956 Sinai campaign, contrasted the strong US support Israel enjoys today to what existed in 1956 when the US and Russia compelled Israel to withdraw from the Sinai.

“I expect that in the twilight of President Obama’s tenure he will stand by what he said in 2011, that the way to achieve peace does not run through Security Council resolutions, but rather direct negotiations with the Palestinians, which has been the US position for years,” said Netanyahu.

At the UN General Assembly in 2011, Obama said of the Mideast conflict: “Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the United Nations – if it were that easy, it would have been accomplished by now.”

Ultimately, he said, “it is the Israelis and the Palestinians who must live side-by-side. Ultimately, it is the Israelis and the Palestinians – not us – who must reach agreement on the issues that divide them: on borders and on security, on refugees and Jerusalem.”

Netanyahu has referenced this speech numerous times in recent months amid concerns that Obama might support some measure at the UN inimical to Israel’s interest in the final days of his presidency.

Israeli diplomatic officials said that while Jerusalem was carefully following the issue, it was speculative, at this time, to say whether the Palestinians would indeed bring a resolution and how the US would respond if they did.

Maliki, in his interview, added that states affiliated with the Non-Alignment Movement and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation already have pledged to support a resolution against the settlements, and consultations with Arab states are ongoing. Abbas attended both the meeting of the OIC in March and the Non-Alignment Movement in September, where he called on member states to support a UNSC resolution condemning settlements.

Jordan and other Arab states reportedly were disappointed the Palestinians insisted on advancing a UNSC resolution in December 2014 that called for Israel to withdraw to the Green Line within three years.

Abbas and PLO Executive Committee Secretary- General Saeb Erakat have since renewed their commitments to coordinate the submission of UNSC resolutions with their Arab counterparts.

One Western diplomatic official said the Arab Quartet – Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates – has not been overly supportive of an anti-settlement resolution at this time. The reason, the official said, is because these countries do not want to give Abbas any “prize” as he continues to thwart the orderly succession process they want to see put into motion inside Fatah.

11-27-2016 Dream: Family Circle, Ready for Jesus

She dreamed she was doing chores throughout her house. Then she sat down

in a chair surrounded by a number of chairs & people were sitting in this circle. 

She knew they were all dressed and ready while waiting for Jesus to come any

day now. 

Confirmation: this video confirms that me, and my grandma

and different cousins in my family are waiting also for World Leaders 

to say Peace & Safety parting the land of Israel. Please pray for the lost who

doesn't want Jesus to come back. The Lord has put it on my heart that if people

do not want Him to come back, they will not go up in the rapture.  There are 

many people in my family like this and throughout my neighborhood. They 

are very lost and do not want to realize what is coming to this earth following

the rapture. I have a feeling Isaiah 13 Judgments and Jeremiah 51 judgments

from Greenland to Canada all the way through to the south point of South

America will be thermonuclear... The death toll will be very high in the Western 

Nations. Time is running out.

11-28-2016: JPost Update: Battle over Balfour Declaration heats up... 99 years after it was issued

"There was already a Jewish majority in Jerusalem in the mid-19th century, well before the Balfour Declaration."

Click to enlarge
A month after a Palestinian group met in Britain’s House of Lords with the aim of burying the Balfour Declaration, an Israeli group on Tuesday will take to a room in the House of Commons to praise it.

Dore Gold, the head of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and up until a month ago the Foreign Ministry’s director-general, will hold a meeting titled “Refuting Balfour’s Detractors” to provide a high-profile response to Palestinian efforts to get a British apology, or even to extract compensation, for the November 1917 declaration that paved the way for the Jewish state.

Rather than take the affirmative step of recognizing the Jewish right to a nation-state in Israel, Gold said, the Palestinians are “doing the exact opposite by denying actively the very request for a Jewish homeland.”

On October 25, the Palestinian Return Center held a symposium in the House of Lords it trumpeted as the “launch of the Balfour Apology Campaign,” aimed at getting a British apology for the Balfour Declaration, which it described as “an historical breach against the aspirations of the people of Palestine” that “shattered its hopes for freedom and self determination.”

Gold said he will prove at Tuesday’s meeting that the Palestinian Return Center is a Hamas entity.

In July, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, speaking on behalf of President Mahmoud Abbas at an Arab League summit in Mauritania, called on the league to help him sue the British government for issuing the Balfour Declaration.

The Balfour Declaration pledged British support for the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine. The 100th anniversary of the declaration, which was made in the form of a letter from then-foreign secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, is to be marked next year.

Gold said both Hamas and the current Palestinian government are united “in this attack on the Balfour Declaration in its 100th year. I think they are trying to achieve several other goals: They want to put the state of Israel into the colonialist box, seeing Israel as a colonialist entity born of British imperialism.”

Many in Britain have a problem with their nation’s colonialist-imperialist past, he said, and as such the Palestinians are able to find allies in their cause to delegitimize the Balfour Declaration.

Gold said part of what needs to be shown is that the return of the Jews to Israel began “well before General Allenby marched into Jerusalem” in December 1917. He pointed out that there was already a Jewish majority in Jerusalem in the mid-19th century, well before the Balfour Declaration.

In order to give the event a bipartisan flavor, Gold invited Yair Hirschfeld, the head of the Tel Aviv-based Economic Cooperation Foundation, to speak at the meeting. Hirschfeld was one of the key architects of the Oslo Accords and is strong supporter of a two-state solution.

Among others who are scheduled to speak at Tuesday’s meeting are former Foreign Ministry legal adviser Alan Baker, British historian Andrew Roberts, British Conservative MP and former justice minister Michael Gove and Ambassador to the UK Mark Regev.

One month ahead of evacuation, Amona remains a city of two tales

"And He (Father YHWH) will stretch over it (Edom) a measuring line of confusion and the plummet stones of chaos over its nobles. They shall call its nobles to proclaim the kingdom, but nothing shall be there, and all her princes shall be NOTHING..." Isaiah 34:11b-12

"They shall call its nobles to proclaim the kingdom, but nothing shall be there". NOTHING will come out for Palestine during Christ's Millenial Reign!!

When you hear this proclamation of a Palestinian State, know that Bible prophecy has been fulfilled, know that nothing will come of it, and know that the final annihilating war of the House of Edom, the Palestinians, is close at hand!!!!!

One month ahead of evacuation, Amona remains a city of two tales: Palestinians recall Jews forcefully taking away the land their families owned for decades, but settlers insist hilltop was empty when they arrived

2016 Rapture Confirmation!! We could be going up as soon as they divide Israel this year!!

I just wanted to say that when I was speaking over the phone to my brother-in-Christ Bob Ware this evening November 27, 2016, I told him that I spoke to my grandmother earlier today and read to her the information I found off the UN Website about how there is a UN General Assembly meeting on November 29, 2016 at 1500 hours on the peace plan concerning Palestine and Middle East turmoil. Right when I finished saying this, I told Bob my grandmother said that she gets from the Holy Spirit that we will be gone before the end of 2016 most likely. I told Bob that my grandmother has NEVER EVER EVER set a date for the rapture nor has ever set a year for the rapture until tonight. Right when I told Bob this over the phone, the Lord nudged me on my left arm when we were sitting on the dining room table!!!!!!!! I hope this means what I think it might mean!!

ISRAEL ON THE BRINK: Raging Islamic arson fires are creeping towards Jerusalem, as towns are being evacuated

Fire near Beit Shemesh forces evacuation of town of Beit Meir. Firefighters continue to fight the fires across Israel.

Town near Jerusalem evacuated as fires continue to rage

Fire near Beit Shemesh forces evacuation of town of Beit Meir. Firefighters continue to fight the fires across Israel.

Firefighters are continuing overnight Thursday to fight the fires that are raging across Israel.

At around 2:00 a.m. a fire broke out in the Beit Shemesh area, near the towns of Beit Meir and Shoresh. Residents of Beit Meir were evacuated from their homes.

Earlier on Thursday night, the community of Har Halutz in the central Galilee was evacuated after a fire in the Karmiel area threatened homes in the community.

Six houses were damaged in the fire, which was extinguished shortly before 3:00 a.m. and residents were permitted to return to their homes.

Another forest fire erupted between Iksal and Nazareth Illit. Firefighters are working to extinguish the fire.

11-25-2016: Israel to Consider Legislation against Loudspeakers in Mosques

A committee of Israeli ministers adopted the two bills on Sunday, though they must still be approved by parliament.

Israel's education minister, Naftali Bennett, who heads the Jewish Home party, said Wednesday that the US election result meant the idea of a Palestinian state was over.

The move was meant to prevent the removal of an outpost known as Amona, which the Supreme Court says was built on private Palestinian land.

"It is a shame: the government is backing a law that will allow the confiscation of privately owned Palestinian land in order to build settlements", said Hagit Ofran, one of the watchdog's leaders. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly opposed the bill, but his Likud Party overwhelmingly supported it.

"Remove the sword of expulsion and transfer from Amona residents, " Avichai Boaron, a resident of Amona leading the lobbying campaign for legalization, said in a news conference.

"The evacuation must occur before December 25", the court said in its ruling on Monday.

Israel's attorney-general, Avihai Mandelblit, said the bill was flawed in its current form as it broke property laws. East Jerusalem is also mainly Palestinian and traditional calls to prayer by muezzins through PA systems can be heard in the city.

Herzog's comments come a day after an Israeli ministerial committee unanimously approved legislation regulating the status of Amona, a wildcat West Bank outpost due for evacuation.

Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit warned that legislation contradicts global law and said he wouldn't be able to defend the bill in front of the high court.

Highlighting official Palestinian reaction to these bills, al-Quds said Palestinian presidency would go to the United Nations Security Council and other UN institutions. The outgoing president, many Israelis fear, could formally outline what the Americans consider a fair resolution to the long-running conflict, including the parameters for a future Palestinian state.

The settlement vote - which had already been postponed once - was forced through by the justice minister, Ayelet Shaked, who is a member of the pro-settlement Jewish Home party led by Naftali Bennett, who has also been a prime mover behind the proposed law.

"This only makes the clearer the choice Israel faces between building more settlements and preserving the possibility of peace", she added. The original settlers of Amona claim that the land was purchased from Palestinians, a claim disputed by Peace Now, which organized a petition of the claimants to demolish the homes.

According to Yousef Idais, the Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Endowments, the bill is aimed at transforming the Israeli-Palestinian geopolitical conflict into that of a religious war.

Israelis reach out to Haifa’s 75,000 fire-ravaged homeless

JPOST Update: Analysis: Unwittingly pushing anti-settlement moves at UN

A few minutes after Bennett spoke, US Ambassador Dan Shapiro took the stage and said that the US remains committed to the two-state solution.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett, in an address to dozens of diplomats at The Jerusalem Post’s annual diplomatic conference on Wednesday, talked about the historic opportunity Israel now has to turn the conversation away from a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“The next few weeks present a unique window of opportunity for Israel,” Bennett told the crowd. “Since 1967 there have always been external reasons for Israel to not do what is right for itself. When Prime Minister Netanyahu meets president Trump, what will he say? Will he continue the long-standing approach of forming a Palestinian state in the heart of Israel, or take a new, fresh approach?” But paradoxically, Bennett may be fueling efforts to get an anti-settlement resolution through the UN Security Council in US President Barack Obama’s waning days in office.

A few minutes after Bennett spoke, US Ambassador Dan Shapiro took the stage and said that the US remains committed to the two-state solution, and bewailed negative steps on the ground threatening to overturn any chance at a two-state solution. Among the negative steps he spelled out that could lead to a “slide” into a one-state, binational reality was – of course – Israeli settlement construction.

During his address, Shapiro gave no indication of what outgoing Obama might do on the Middle East in his final months in office. However, Murray McCully, New Zealand’s foreign minister, was in the country last week, and Wellington – according to Western diplomatic sources – has not ditched the idea of bringing a Mideast resolution to the UN Security Council before the end of the year.

Yes, New Zealand. Why? Because its two-year temporary seat on the UN Security Council will expire December 31, and – like so many other countries – it is looking to leave some kind of diplomatic legacy, some footprint that says, “New Zealand was here.” And what better place to do that than in the Middle East? For almost the entire two years that it has been on the Security Council, there has been talk that New Zealand would sponsor some kind of Mideast resolution. Last year the talk was first that it would co-sponsor a resolution with the French, then that they would sponsor a more declarative, less prescriptive resolution than the French had in mind.

And now the French have seemingly backed away from their intent to bring a resolution to the Security Council, New Zealand is at it again – discussing the possibility of a resolution dealing with the settlements.

And Bennett’s comments, as well as comments by others on the Right saying that the new Trump administration provides a great opportunity for a new construction push, only give greater incentive to those who want to see such an anti-settlement initiative at the UN move forward.

Ironically, New Zealand is having a hard time finding a lot of backers.

The Arab Quartet – made up of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates – has not been overly enthused about the idea. Not because they have fallen in love with the settlements, Western sources said, but because they do not want to give Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas any “prize” at this time, as he continues to thwart what they want to see: an orderly succession process put into motion inside Fatah.

The position of the US on this type of measure is – at this time – anyone’s guess. On the one hand, Obama vetoed an anti-settlement resolution at the UN in 2011. But in 1979, during Jimmy Carter’s tenure as president, the US abstained and let Security Council Resolution 446 pass.

That resolution declared that “the policy and practices of Israel in establishing settlements in the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967 have no legal validity, and constitute a serious obstruction to achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East.”

Obama, in his final days, may want to enshrine his well-known opposition to the settlements in a UN Security Council resolution that would be more difficult for Trump to overturn, because it would have the imprimatur of the international community.

At this point no one knows for sure what Obama would do if such a resolution came before the Security Council – vote for, abstain or veto – or how Trump would react.

But one thing is clear: Declarations about the death of the two-state solution, or statements about the historic opportunity now to launch a major building drive in Judea and Samaria, give added incentive to those who want to see the UN Security Council send a clear message to Israel: “Don’t even think about it.”

This is a legacy a country like New Zealand – with just over a month left in the diplomatic limelight on the Security Council – is keen on leaving.

For When They Shall Say Peace & Safety, Sudden Destruction will fall upon them!!! article for SERIOUS watchers...

The Palestinians are planning to bring their own resolution to the UN Security Council declaring that Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem are illegal and that calls on the sides to return to the negotiating table with a time frame of one year to reach a final status agreement. The UN vote is set for April 22, Passover-eve, and Palestinian media reports that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to be present in New York for the vote.

EDITOR’S NOTE: On the eve of Passover on April 22nd, the United Nations will vote on Climate Change referendum. The Palestinians want a vote on condemning Israel for building on their own land in the West Bank. Will Barack Obama use this moment to demand the creation of a Palestinian state? Insiders say this would be his ‘perfect revenge’ against Netanyahu whom he has long shown contempt for.

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJV)

With the Obama administration in its final year, several officials have said that the president has grown so frustrated with trying to revive Middle East peace talks that he may lay down his own outline for an Israeli-Palestinian two-state peace agreement, in the form of a resolution in the United Nations Security Council.

If that happens, count on two reactions: Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, will oppose it, and a chorus of American politicians and commentators will suggest that it would be unprecedented — even unthinkable — for an American president to support a Security Council resolution that Israel opposed, rather than veto it.

Last spring, when similar reports circulated, Senator John McCain of Arizona said that such an action would “contradict American policy for the last at least 10 presidents of the United States.” The Republican chairman and ranking Democrat of the House Foreign Affairs Committee joined in a letter protesting that “for decades the U.S. has used its U.N. Security Council veto to protect Israel from undue pressure at the world body.” A bipartisan group of senators agreed, seeking assurances that the policy would not change.

Remarkably, the assumption beneath those protests — that President Obama would be committing an unprecedented betrayal of the American-Israeli relationship if he did not block every Security Council resolution that challenged the actions or positions of Israel’s government — has gone unchallenged.

Until Obama decides how to act, Israel is focusing on frustrating Palestinian diplomatic efforts at the UN. The Palestinians are planning to bring their own resolution to the UN Security Council declaring that Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem are illegal and that calls on the sides to return to the negotiating table with a time frame of one year to reach
a final status agreement. The UN vote is set for April 22, Passover-eve, and Palestinian media reports that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to be present in New York for the vote.

A MUST READ: 'The New York Times' Calls for Obama to Support a UN Resolution That Would Divide the Land of Israel — Charisma News

'The New York Times' Calls for Obama to Support a UN Resolution That Would Divide the Land of Israel — Charisma News

While most Americans are focused on the endless circus surrounding Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, a drama of Earth-shattering importance is playing out behind the scenes.

Most people seem to assume that we don't have to be concerned about Barack Obama anymore because his second term is scheduled to end in a few months, but the truth is that an absolutely critical decision is in his hands right now. Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have said that they will not support a proposed U.N. Security Council resolution that would formally establish a Palestinian state, that would set the parameters for the new state, and that would grant them East Jerusalem as their capital.

So at this moment there is a tremendous amount of international pressure on Barack Obama to support such a resolution, because the U.S. veto power on the U.N. Security Council is the only thing standing in the way of formally dividing the land of Israel. I wrote about this in August, in September, and now I am writing about it again in October. If Obama is going to do this, it needs to happen by Jan. 20, 2017, and so for the next few months we are officially in "the danger zone."

On Thursday, The New York Times editorial board added their voice to the growing chorus of those calling for a "parameters resolution" in a piece entitled "At the Boiling Point With Israel."

The best idea under discussion now would be to have the United Nations Security Council, in an official resolution, lay down guidelines for a peace agreement covering such issues as Israel's security, the future of Jerusalem, the fate of Palestinian refugees and borders for both states.

In the article, The New York Times editorial board also strongly endorsed the U.S. State Department's recent condemnation of Israel's plan to build new housing units in the West Bank.

I have included the official State Department statement on this matter below. Just like Barack Obama did at the U.N. recently, the State Department referred to Israel's presence in the West Bank as an "occupation."

We strongly condemn the Israeli government's recent decision to advance a plan that would create a significant new settlement deep in the West Bank.

Proceeding with this new settlement, which could include up to 300 units, would further damage the prospects for a two state solution. The retroactive authorization of nearby illegal outposts, or redrawing of local settlement boundaries, does not change the fact that this approval contradicts previous public statements by the Government of Israel that it had no intention of creating new settlements. And this settlement's location deep in the West Bank, far closer to Jordan than Israel, would link a string of outposts that effectively divide the West Bank and make the possibility of a viable Palestinian state more remote.

It is deeply troubling, in the wake of Israel and the U.S. concluding an unprecedented agreement on military assistance designed to further strengthen Israel's security, that Israel would take a decision so contrary to its long term security interest in a peaceful resolution of its conflict with the Palestinians. Furthermore, it is disheartening that while Israel and the world mourned the passing of President Shimon Peres, and leaders from the U.S. and other nations prepared to honor one of the great champions of peace, plans were advanced that would seriously undermine the prospects for the two-state solution that he so passionately supported.

Israelis must ultimately decide between expanding settlements and preserving the possibility of a peaceful two state solution. Since the recent Quartet report called on both sides to take affirmative steps to reverse current trends and advance the two state solution on the ground, we have unfortunately seen just the opposite. Proceeding with this new settlement is another step towards cementing a one-state reality of perpetual occupation that is fundamentally inconsistent with Israel's future as a Jewish and democratic state. Such moves will only draw condemnation from the international community, distance Israel from many of its partners, and further call into question Israel's commitment to achieving a negotiated peace.

As you can see on the official State Department website, that press release was issued on Oct. 5.

At the exact same time, Hurricane Matthew was rapidly gaining strength, and it ultimately became the first category 5 hurricane to form in the Atlantic since 2007. It proceeded to slam into the southeastern United States, causing billions of dollars of damage in the process. The following comes from Wikipedia:

Preparations began in earnest across the southeastern United States as Matthew approached, with several states declaring a state of emergency for either entire states or coastal counties; widespread evacuations were ordered for extensive areas of the coast. On October 6, U.S. President Barack Obama declared a federal state of emergency for Florida.[1]The federal disaster declaration was later extended to include Georgia and South Carolina.[2] In Florida, over 1 million lost power as the storm passed to the east, with 478,000 losing power in Georgia and South Carolina.

When will we learn?

For decades the pattern has always been the same. Every time we come against Israel, the consequences are immediate and they are dramatic.

Unfortunately, our leaders never seem to learn, and now we stand on the precipice of perhaps the biggest betrayal of Israel of all time. Here is more from the New York Times about why they believe it is important to put "pressure" on Israel in the form of a UN Security Council resolution.

The most plausible pressure would come from Mr. Obama's leading the Security Council to put its authority behind a resolution to support a two-state solution and offer the outlines of what that could be. That may seem like a bureaucratic response unlikely to change anything, but it is the kind of political pressure Mr. Netanyahu abhors and has been working assiduously to prevent.

No, such a resolution would not just be "a bureaucratic response."

A U.N. Security Council resolution would be legally binding on both Israel and the Palestinians, and whoever is elected in November would not be able to go back and undo it.

Such a resolution would permanently divide the land of Israel, it would give formal U.N. recognition to a Palestinian state for the very first time, and it would hand East Jerusalem over to the Palestinians.

And according to the Times of Israel, the U.N. Security Council could begin discussing these matters as soon as next Friday.

The Security Council is expected to hold a session next Friday under the official banner: "The settlements as the obstacle to peace and a two-state solution."

The meeting, initiated by the Palestinians, is considered the opening salvo to a resolution condemning Israel for settlement activity.

This process could result in just a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity, but there is also a tremendous amount of concern that Obama could use this as an opportunity to "leave a legacy" in the Middle East. Here is more from the Times of Israel:

Israeli government members have been worried that Obama, before leaving office in January but after a successor is chosen in November, may seek to impose or advance a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, or at least set out parameters for how it should be solved, including through the Security Council by not using the US veto for any anti-Israel resolutions.

According to a Channel 2 report Thursday, an Israeli official charged that the "disproportionate criticism" from Washington over the latest construction plans was "an alibi" to cover plans by Obama to take anti-Israel actions in the final weeks of his presidency.

If this happens, it will be the worst thing that Barack Obama has done during his entire time in the White House.

Whether it is Barack Obama or someone else, the truth is that someday the U.S. government will have a major role in dividing the land of Israel, and it is one of the most important prophetic markers that we are watching for.

Because once the land of Israel gets divided, all hell is going to break loose in America.

I have discussed the potential consequences for dividing the land of Israel on television, and in my new book I warn about all of the historic disasters that are coming to this nation.

If we get to Jan. 20 and another president takes over and there has been no U.N. Security Council resolution, perhaps we can breathe a little bit of a sigh of relief.

But if Barack Obama does what The New York Times and so many others are urging him to do, the consequences for this country and for the world will be absolutely unimaginable.

So while you are keeping up with the latest insults that Trump and Clinton are hurling at one another, don't forget about Obama, because what he decides to do regarding Israel in the months ahead is going to have dramatic implications for all of us.

UN: Inaction towards Israeli settlements increasing Palestinians' suffering

The UN’s Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process has warned that inaction towards Israel’s “increasingly worrying” illegal settlement activities is endangering efforts to establish an independent Palestinian state.

“Inaction has a cost -- a cost measured in human lives and suffering,” said Nickolay Mladenov on Wednesday while addressing the United Nations Security Council.

Calling on Israel to halt its settlement expansion activities, Mladenov noted that such actions are were dangerously changing the situation in the region.

“The situation on the ground is changing steadily, dangerously, as proponents of Israeli settlement expansion feel emboldened, internal divisions among Palestinians flare up, and the prospect of a future Palestinian state comes under threat like never before,” said Mladenov.

He also stressed that those who oppose a Palestinian state “offer no viable alternative.”

“The alternative is an open-ended occupation, a perpetual conflict which breeds anger among the people of Palestine and Israel,” he added.

Mladenov made the remarks after the Israeli regime revived an initiative for constructing 500 new illegal settler units in East Jerusalem al-Quds.

The new illegal settler units will be built on a 76-acre lot between Ramat Shlomo and the Palestinian neighborhood of Shuafat after expropriating private Palestinian land in the area.

Over half a million Israelis live in more than 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem al-Quds.

The Tel Aviv regime has defied international calls to stop its illegal construction activities, with its settlement expansion being among the main reasons behind the collapse of the last round of the so-called Middle East peace talks in 2014.


If passed, Israeli legislation would be ‘another nail in the coffin’ for two-state solution – UN expert

November 2016 – A new piece of Israeli legislation would enable the confiscation of privately owned Palestinian land and if passed, would deal yet another severe blow to hopes of lasting peace in the region, according to a United Nations human rights expert.

Michael Lynk, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, expressed deep concern over the proposal to legalize more than 100 illegal outposts in the occupied West Bank. The legislation passed its first reading in the Knesset on 16 November.

According to Mr. Lynk, the unauthorized outposts have been set up on private Palestinian land, deep within the occupied West Bank, and are considered illegal under current Israeli domestic law. To retroactively legalize them would be “another nail in the coffin for the two-state solution,” he said.

“These outposts undermine the Palestinian right to self-determination, violate their rights to property, freedom of movement, and development, and continue to confine the Palestinians into smaller and smaller cantons of non-contiguous lands within their own territory.”

If adopted, the legislation would allow the Israeli State to appropriate private Palestinian lands where the outposts have been built, thereby repurposing them for use by Israeli settlers. The Special Rapporteur emphasized that international law prohibits the confiscation of private property, such as proposed by the current law.

“The Knesset should not be giving the green light to theft by changing the law,” said Mr. Lynk, adding that violating international law would be neither lessened nor mitigated by the bill’s proposed measures to compensate Palestinians whose land has been unlawfully taken.

The current draft follows a recent ruling by the Israeli Supreme Court that the Amona outpost must be evacuated by 25 December – thereby rejecting a request for delay from the Israeli Government.

“Among the purposes of this legislation is to regularize the legal status of Amona,” said the Special Rapporteur.

Mr. Lynk was alarmed to note that some senior Israeli cabinet ministers not only supported the bill, but were also openly calling for annexation of large parts of the West Bank.

“The international community must be very clear with the Government of Israel,” he said. “The annexation of occupied territory likewise would be a profound breach of international law. If Israel proceeds with either step, the international community must be prepared not only to condemn the action, but also to adopt appropriate measures to reverse these violations.”

“An occupying power is expressly prohibited from transferring its civilian population into an occupied territory. This violates the 4th Geneva Convention of 1949, and is contrary to numerous UN Security Council and General Assembly resolutions, as well as a major advisory opinion by the International Court of Justice in 2004,” he said.

Mr. Lynk is part of the Special Procedures of the Human Rights Council, which is part of the Council’s independent fact-finding and monitoring mechanisms that address either specific country situations or thematic issues in all parts of the world. Special Rapporteurs are neither UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.
