Foreign Policy.com via Drudge ^ | 16 Feb 2011 | Colum Lynch

Posted on 02/16/2011 6:20:30 PM PST by edpc

The U.S. informed Arab governments Friday that it will support a U.N. Security Council statement reaffirming that the 15-nation body "does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity," a move aimed at avoiding the prospect of having to veto a stronger Palestinian resolution calling the settlements illegal.

But the Palestinian's rejected the American offer following a meeting late Wednesdy of Arab representativs and said it is planning to press for a vote on its resolution Friday, according officials familar with the issue. The decision to reject the American offer raised the prospects that the Obama adminstration may cast its first ever veto in the U.N. Security Council.

But of course American Jews will keep voting for the Jew-hating Democrat Party.

No...not really. This president has repeatedly shown where his allegiances are. They aren’t with this nation or its traditional allies.

What happen to the American Jews? Have they already been gassed?

Most American jews are JINO's.

The G-d of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. He’s also quite proficient at keeping ledgers...and we aren’t behaving so well toward His Chosen of late. The future concerns me more and more every time that the Moor-in-Chief gets involved with Israel.

More like JBBO’s—Jews By Birth Only. No one who has converted to Judaism would sell out the way the liberal Jews have. They don’t appreciate the gift they have been given. Someday, when it is too late, they will.

"Settlement" of Maale Adumin (seven miles east of Jerusalem in the "West Bank", Dead Sea and Jordan in the distance) surrounded by displaced Arab farms and shanties:
It's hard to believe how desolate this area the Israelis have "usurped" really is until you see it.

Of all the “Unrealities” of the _resident, this is the most startling thing I have read in years.

Well, well, well! The bumbling ne’er-do-well is finally showing his real face. My guess is he will not run again in 2012, because of the BC issue, so he has nothing to lose by condemning Israel. He will do as much damage as he possibly can get away with in his remaining time.......

How long before the Lord of Hosts, the God of Jacob and of Jesus, no longer looks on America with favor? His justice cannot sleep forever if we as a nation become an enemy of His chosen people.

"Most American jews are JINO's"

I'm gonna use that line when I'm at Blue Ridge Country Club (the one up on Linglestown Road) for golfing events. While I can't play anymore with the back, I do help them.

Look, I think the world of Jews and have always supported them. But I am sick of their vote. Enough already.

HIDEOUS. Many folks have no clue about God’s priorities.

IT may be a relatively minor issue from some perspectives. I don’t think it will be from God’s.

Some think there will be a significant consequence for us from this sent to us by God Himself.

Good thing we have made sure to make Israel as dependent as possible on foreign aid. We would never have an administration that wouldn’t stand up for Israel.

It is funny that people who say welfare makes individuals dependent on the government will be all for foreign aid. What do they think will happen?

This is true. By listening to news accounts, you would think that the Israelis kicked Palestinians out of their houses and took over their towns. But when you actually go there and see for yourself, you witness TRUTH smacking you in the face.

I can vividly recall standing on a hill in Jerusalem and looking out at the vast desert. The sand and haze was blinding. All I could see is white stretching out to the horizon. But when I studied the landscape, I discovered a tiny spot of green on that vast stretch of nothingness. It was then that I discovered a West Bank settlement that I heard about on the news. At that moment, it became unmistakably clear where God's blessings lay.

Dunno how some jews can live with having voted for this traitorous POS.

I hope it weighs heavy on their hearts and they take a long look at what they have done and start working to make sure he is not re-elected.

This latest UN resolution is based upon the idea that settlement activity is illegal. However, the idea that these settlements are illegal is false. It is a misreading of Resolution 242 made by the UN Security Council On November 22, 1967. In dispute is the wording that says, “inadmissability of the acquisition of territory by war” and, “withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict.” The resolution did not say Israel must withdraw from “all the” territories occupied after the Six-Day war. The resolution never specified how much territory had to be given up.

This dispute has been going on for 43 years. The effort has made the world think that Israel can give up land for peace. However, the facts are that there will be no land and no peace and ultimately, no Israel.

One guy was saying that he thought the New Madrid fault would blow and split the U.S. right down the middle. Of course, we hope not, but Obama is as adamant against Israel as you can get. He says one thing, then his actions show the opposite, with a big old smile on his face - grinning ear to ear.
