A day
before Chanukah, a Friday right before Shabbat started, the UN Security
Council voted unanimously to pass Resolution 2334, which forbids Israel
from “settlement activity” in Judea and Samaria (the West
Bank to those who reject history). They not only included new settlements
on land no one has used in centuries, but places in which Jews have had
a presence for thousands of years – East Jerusalem and the Western
Wall of the Temple Mount. Basically they called “outlaws”
all the 800,000 or so Jewish inhabitants of this disputed territory.
US was complicit as the White House said “Netanyahu brought the
US abstention on himself”. So this tells me that the US president
brought suffering on 800,000 Jews because he has a personal vendetta against
a Prime Minister. Wow.
What a foreign policy that is. Your legacy, Obama,
is a judgment that will bring dishonor on your head. What leader of the
free world espouses a foreign policy of personal vendetta except for the
Islamic terror state leaders?
essay isn’t about the history of the disputed land, as volumes have
already been written on this. Some history does, however, need to be summarized
to provide context for the conflict. But basically, the land was part
of Israel historically and Biblically. It includes the part of Jerusalem
in which the Temple sat for centuries. Though the Jewish nation was scattered
for 2000 years, there were always some Jews remaining in the areas of
Judea and Samaria and the Old City of Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter.
It was controlled mainly by the Ottomans and the British for centuries,
though neither did much with this land overlooking the Jordan Valley.
When Israel was made a state in 1948, Judea and Samaria became part of
the state of Jordan, the part of Palestine which was supposed to be for
the Arab refugees of Israel.
It didn’t
work that way, of course. Muslims and Arabs are not known for keeping
their word. They value taquiyya – lying – as a way to obtain their
wants, in addition to terror and murder. For nineteen years, though Jordan
“occupied” Judea and Samaria, they did little with the land.
Then in 1967, when they held the “West Bank” in their control,
several Arab nations attacked Israel. Miraculously, Israel won and not
only protected small Israel, but advanced to the Jordan River and took
possession of Judea and Samaria.
when one state wins territory in a war, to end the fighting, a peace treaty
is signed, awarding the land won to the winner. For some reason, Israel
agreed to stop fighting even without such a treaty. Jordan and Israel
did later sign a peace agreement, but the land Israel now occupied was
left for some later negotiation.
the Arab refugees, who were given Jordan for their state, when Palestine
was split in 1948. Rather than do so, as the Jordanian king, being an
Alawhite, didn’t want more of the refugees, the Arabs created the
“Palestinians”. Even though Jews were also Palestinians, that
inconvenient fact is not relevant to the Arab narrative, which suddenly
became the need for the Arab Palestinians to have their own state. These
were Arabs who moved to the area largely to work for the new state of
Israel, since so many jobs were opened as the Jews needed help building
infrastructure. Many of them were not the refugees who had lived in Israel
and fled during the War of Independence in 1948. Despite the fact that
there is no historical basis for a “Palestinian” state in
Israel, many of the Arabs living in the area were incited to terrorize
Israelis until land could be taken from Israel for their state.
it soon became clear – from their own words – that the Arab nations were
supporting these “Palestinians” because the Arabs had failed
in every war they waged against Israel. Their new weapon was the terrorism
of the incited Arabs who were brainwashed to believe that Judea and Samaria
were their lands. The goal has always been – as was the goal pre-1967
– to wipe out all of the Jews in the Middle East. Muslims can’t
have a total caliphate in the Middle East with a nation of upstart Jews
thriving in it. And this is the cogent, all-important basis behind all
of the Arab-Israel conflict.
So that
brings us to December 23, 2016, when the UN Security Council finally voted
to outlaw the settlements which were built on land Israel had been controlling
for 50 years. This ruling made outlaws of the hundreds of thousands of
Jews living in this land. These Jews came to this area because they wanted
to live on the land where King David walked, where their ancestors had
lived, where the Tabernacle – and later the Temple – had been located.
This was the land in which the sons of Jacob, David and others pastured
their flocks. It is the land of Jewish heritage.
So I
ask the UN and US – why do you wish to destroy Israel? Anyone who has
lived in Israel knows we cannot survive living among warring Arabs without
the protection provided by the highlands of Judea and Samaria. We cannot
long survive without our control of the Temple Mount, the holiest site
of our history and faith – our very heart and soul.
years the UN policy and rulings stated that no one could dictate to the
Jews and Arabs how the solution would be worked out to the conflict, but
that Jews and Arabs would have to work out a “final status agreement”.
Now the UN, for the umpteenth time, has violated its own previous rulings
and policy. It has imposed Muslim desires upon Israel for no good reason,
other than to rid Judea and Samaria of Jews and hand over the Judenrein-to-be
area to the favored Muslims.
UN Security
Council members and the UN-supporting world which remains silent: for
what sins do you persecute us Jews?

Is it for the sin of the provision of the Bible and the world’s
first monotheistic faith?
Is it for the provision of the foundation for
the Christian faith?
Is it for the provision of thousands of medical
cures and treatments
Is it for Israel’s
aid to countless nations
such as Haiti following the cataclysmic
events which brought suffering to each one’s citizens?
Is it for our countless scientific
and technological
developments which have brought better living
to many areas of the world?
Is it jealousy that we continue to prosper
throughout centuries
of attempted annihilation
Is it our huge impact on the entertainment
Is it our long list of Nobel
in Literature, Chemistry, Medicine, Physics and Economics?
Is it that we have the highest percent per
capita of University Degrees?
Is it because we have the highest percent per
capita of museums, zoos, orchestras, and home computers?
Is it because we’re the only country
in the world with more trees at the beginning of the 21st century than
at the start of the 20th?
Is it for Israel’s high number of contributions
to the advancement of agriculture?
Is it for Israel’s high number of incredible environmental
in the world?

Or perhaps, do you persecute us because we represent God’s will
on earth when living in the land where He chose to put His Name? Are
you really trying to stamp out God and His revelations to humans? After
all, if you can eliminate the people whom God promised to save, you
could make Him out to be a liar.
Is that
your ultimate desire and goal? Because you might as well give up now,
as you will only bring down trouble on your heads, and always fail.
for which of these things, or other more heinous crimes, do you persecute
the Jews of Israel?

January 15th: 70 Nations Will Gather In Paris To Discuss The Future Of Israel 

SEE: http://the-trumpet-online.com/january-15th-70-nations-will-gather-paris-discuss-future-israel/;

On January 15th, representatives from 70 different countries will
gather in Paris, France for an unprecedented global conference.  The
stated goal of this conference is to promote a “two-state solution” as
the way that lasting peace will be brought to the Middle East.  
Israel, there is a tremendous amount of concern that whatever is agreed
upon at this conference will immediately be used as the basis for a UN
Security Council resolution that would permanently divide the land of
Israel and create a Palestinian state.  
things would have to move very rapidly in order for that to happen,
because Barack Obama’s time in the White House comes to an end on
January 20th, and Donald Trump has already made it exceedingly clear
that he would never support such a resolution.
UN Security Council resolution that was passed on Friday was one of the
most significant events that we have witnessed in decades.  Resolution
2334 made all Israeli settlements in the West Bank and in East Jerusalem
illegal, it set the 1967 ceasefire lines as the border between the
Israelis and the Palestinians, and it granted every single inch of East
Jerusalem to the Palestinians.  
But it stopped short of giving official UN Security Council
recognition to a Palestinian state, and that is why this conference on
January 15th is so important.
The Israeli
government is reportedly fearful that any guidelines agreed in Paris
would be turned into another UN resolution before Trump’s inauguration.
spokesman for Netanyahu claimed to have “ironclad evidence” that the
Obama administration had plotted behind the scenes to promote the UN
resolution. Israel has said it will present evidence against the Obama
administration to the incoming Trump team.
what an Egyptian newspaper is claiming is true, then there may very well
be an international conspiracy at work against Israel.  According to a
transcript published by the Al-Youm Al-Sabea newspaper, John Kerry and
U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice met with Palestinian officials
in early December and presented Kerry’s plan to them at that time…
a meeting in early December with top Palestinian negotiator Saeb
Erekat, US Secretary of State John Kerry told the Palestinians that the
US was prepared to cooperate with the Palestinians at the Security
council, Israel’s Channel 1 TV said, quoting the Egyptian Al-Youm
Al-Sabea newspaper.

Also present
at the meeting were US National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and Majed
Faraj, director of the Palestinian Authority’s General Intelligence

Kerry is quoted as
saying that he could present his ideas for a final status solution if
the Palestinians pledge they will support the proposed framework. The US
officials advised the Palestinians to travel to Riyadh to present the
plan to Saudi leaders.
The Obama
administration is denying all of this of course.  But if it is true,
then the betrayal of Israel by Obama is much deeper than any of us
With less than a month to go in his
presidency, Barack Obama has decided to launch an all-out attack on
Israel.  Once Resolution 2334 passed and the uproar against it was
limited, that emboldened the Obama administration to go for broke.
it looks like they actually could try to get a Palestinian state
created before he leaves office on January 20th, and if that happens it
will be absolutely catastrophic for America.  
see, the truth is that we have been warned for many years that our land
will be divided after the land of Israel is officially divided into two
states.  Many of us have been watching for the creation of a
Palestinian state for a very long time, and now we may be right on the
verge of it happening.

When Donald Trump takes office he would not be able to reverse the
creation of a Palestinian state, but one thing that he could do would be
to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.
If that happens, the Palestinians are promising to throw a massive temper tantrum…
asked how the Palestinians would react if Trump carried out his promise
to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, Erekat reportedly said the
Palestine Liberation Organization would rescind its recognition of
Israel and ask Arab states to expel their US envoys.

made precisely that threat in a December 19 conference call organized
by the Wilson Center policy forum. He said he would immediately resign
as the chief Palestinian negotiator, and that “the PLO will revoke its
recognition of Israel” as well as all previously signed agreements with
Furthermore, said Erekat, all
American embassies in the Arab world would be forced to close — not
necessarily because Arab leaderships would want to close them, but
because the infuriated public in the Arab world would not “allow” for
the embassies to continue to operate.
Ultimately, everything that is happening now is setting the stage for the biggest war in the Middle East that we have ever seen.
So instead of this “peace process” being the solution, it is actually going to cause the Middle East to explode in violence.

Obama administration lied, exposed as architect of anti-Israel UN action

EXCERPT:  “On the heels of the hotly contested resolution, which condemned Israel
for building homes in its capital, Jerusalem, senior Obama
administration officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry and
Vice President Joe Biden, have been identified as leading the charge to

(Friday Church News Notes, December 30, 2016, www.wayoflife.org,
[email protected], 866-295-4143) – 

In what has been called Obama’s
parting shot at Israel, the White House allowed a UN Security Council
resolution to pass last Friday that refers to the West Bank and eastern
Jerusalem as “Palestinian territory occupied since 1967” and demands a
halt to Israel’s construction in those places. The Temple Mount,
including the Western Wall and the Temple Mount plaza, are located in
eastern Jerusalem. “In actuality, the Palestinians never had a state in
either the West Bank or eastern Jerusalem and they are not legally
recognized as the undisputed authority in those areas. Jordan occupied
and annexed the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem from 1948 until Israel
captured the lands in a defensive war in 1967 after Arab countries used
the territories to launch attacks against the Jewish state. In 1988
Jordan officially renounced its claims to the West Bank and eastern
Jerusalem. … The Committee for Accuracy for Middle East Reporting in
America (CAMERA) pointed out [that] international law does not make
Israeli settlements illegal: ‘Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva
Conventions, which is relied upon by those who claim the settlements are
illegal, does not apply in the case of the West Bank. This is because
the West Bank was never under self-rule by a nation that was a party to
the Convention, and therefore there is no “partial or total occupation
of the territory of a High Contracting Party,” as Article 2 of the
Convention specifies. Moreover, even if it did apply, by its plain
terms, it applies only to forcible transfers and not to voluntary
movement. Therefore, it can’t prohibit Jews from choosing to move to
areas of great historical and religious significance to them’” (
Dec. 23, 2016). “And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was
separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place
where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For
all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed
for ever” (Genesis 13:14-15). “Neither, because they are the seed of
are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called” (Romans 9:7).
