UN Security Council, with US backing, calls for “unconditional” ceasefire
Jihad Watch ^ | 7/28/14 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 07/28/2014 6:47:26 PM PDT by Nachum

This is the first time that the United States has not supported Israel at the United Nations. It is surprising that in the Obama presidency, with all of Obama’s obvious hostility toward Israel, that it has taken this long. It is unlikely to be the last time that this happens.

“The United States Lowers Israel’s Diplomatic Shield at the United Nations,” by Colum Lynch, Foreign Policy, July 28, 2014 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):

Despite a history of rocky relations between U.S. President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Obama administration could largely be counted on to watch Israel’s back in the U.N. Security Council, where it succeeded for more than five years in blocking successive efforts by the Palestinians to gain more of the trappings of an independent state and to get the world body to formally censure Israeli settlement policies.

That changed after the stroke of midnight Sunday when, in the early minutes of Monday, July 28, the U.N. Security Council, with the backing of the United States, issued a formal “presidential statement” demanding that Israel and Hamas implement an “immediate and unconditional” cease-fire to end fighting that has left more than 1,000 Palestinians and 43 Israelis dead. The Palestinians say they will continue to seek Security Council support for a legally enforceable resolution demanding that Israel halt its military offensive in Gaza.

The Jewish Americans who supported Obama are this generation’s Neville Chamberlain. They enabled the holocaust surely to come.

When Israel finishes with Hamass, we need to join with them and kick the UN’s ass.

What about a legally enforceable resolution demanding that Hama halt its military operations in Gaza?

The moment Hamas called for a "humanitarian cease-fire" so did Obama's State Department.

Just to make it clear who stands with who.

This is the first time that the United States has not supported Israel at the United Nations.

This is the first time we've ever elected a Muslim Brotherhood president into the White House.

Obama has a way of making the U. S. look more impotent each and every day. This is just laughable.

The U.N. has been demanding Israel call a ceasefire for over a week now. It didn’t even bother calling on Hamas to stop it’s atrocities until after Israel put it’s foot down and started military action in response.

The U.N. has thus forfeited it’s standing. It’s a Hamas run organization for all intents and purposes. The U.N. is a terrorist supporting organization.

F the U. N. Who gives a damn what it says. Kick the livin’ sh— out of the organization until it limps off U. S. soil.

Damn right, there’s a reason Obama visited New York city Manhattan 2 -3 times a week for fundraisers while running for 1st and 2nd terms, because of all the self hating Jews there. I was driving a taxi in between jobs when he was first running and use to get into arguments with them all the time, it was just absolutely unreal - Like Jews supporting Nazis. That’s how effed up in the head liberalism makes people. I’m so glad I moved the hell out of there, I hate that city with a passion and I grew up there. Just one bottomless pit of liberal scum. I hope like their new commie Mayor and choke on it.

“Unconditional ceasefire” for Israel is tantamount to a surrender.

Which explains why The IDF is bombing relentlessly tonight. Their government now knows that they will have to take care of themselves because Obama is on the side of Hamas. Very sad.

Nazis are National Socialists - most Jews are socialists (statists). They just didn't believe ObaMao was a Muslim (Brotherhood).

Unconditional or not, doesn’t really matter.

Hamas will violate it within 3-4 hours by firing more rockets, just like every other “cease-fire” so far.

Bammy called Bibi in the middle of the night and “demanded” that he institute an immediate unilateral cease fire. Bibi suggested that he go attempt an act of self reproduction.

The UN meeting was already scheduled, but Bammy thought he’d bolster his macho image (his WHAT???) by ordering Bibi around. Didn’t quite work the way he hoped it would.

Right , the only reason for this ceasefire is that Hamas is getting its ass handed to them. Stop the Israelis so the Islamonazis can regroup.

“unconditionL” means, of course, that the Israelis should send all their soldiers home and totally stand down while the paynim horde does what it will do.

Remember Zbig’s declaration a couple of years back that the USA should invade and occupy ISRAEL for the general good of everyone in the ME. I thought then and I still think that was an indirect threat by the Democrats of what was intended once the Left would take formal power.

“Unconditional Ceasefire” would be like a traditional Chinese full kowtow, that is the symbolic presenting of one’s neck to be whacked through if the supplicant should displease the Emperor.

Israel needs to get things done as quickly as possible. At some point the Head Mohammedan of America will cut off Israel's resupply. Russia can help and has offered but it would require a total change of systems in the midst of the battle and that doesn't have very good prospects. Israel needs to CLEAR the Gaza as rapidly as possible with whatever it takes. Israel will be cut off from western aid and will be ravaged by the paynim if Israel doesn't get this done fast enough.

"Unconditional" means that the Israelis stop attacking and stop resisting, no conditions. There will be no 3 or 4 hour hiatus with "unconditional ceasfire." Unconditional Ceasefire is a demand to Israel, not to anyone else.
