  • Obama Defends Anti-Israel UN Resolution as ‘Best Move for Peace’

    01/11/2017 4:24:32 AM PST · by Eleutheria5 · 14 replies
    US President Barack Obama warned in an interview broadcast Tuesday on Israel’s Channel 2 that “unfettered support” for Israel’s settlement policies would lead to a “worsening situation” over time between Israelis and Palestinians. The interview, filmed in Washington last week, appeared 10 days before Obama, who has been an outspoken critic of the Netanyahu government particularly concerning Israeli communities in eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, hands over the reins to President-elect Donald Trump, who takes an entirely different approach to the Israeli-Arab conflict, among most other issues. “If the notion is that unfettered support for Israel or, more specifically, support...
  • How the U.S. came to abstain on a U.N. resolution condemning Israeli settlements

    On Dec. 21, amid his morning workout, an afternoon round of golf and a family dinner with friends, President Obama interrupted his Hawaii vacation to consult by phone with his top national security team in Washington. Egypt had introduced a resolution at the U.N. Security Council condemning Israeli settlements as illegal, and a vote was scheduled for the next day. The idea had been circulating at the council for months, but the abrupt timing was a surprise. Obama was open to abstaining, he said on the call, provided the measure was “balanced” in its censure of terrorism and Palestinian violence...

    JERUSALEM — Doubling down on its public break with the Obama administration, a furious Israeli government on Tuesday said it had received “ironclad” information from Arab sources that Washington actively helped craft last week’s U.N. resolution declaring Israeli settlements in occupied territories illegal. The allegation, which was denied by the State Department, further poisoned a toxic atmosphere between Israel and the outgoing administration in the wake of Friday’s vote, raising questions about whether the White House might take further action against settlements in President Barack Obama’s final weeks in office.

    And they're going to give it to Trump once he takes office In case you’re wondering why this would matter, consider the difference between passively taking no action to stop something another party initiated, versus pushing it behind the scenes and having others sponsor it on your behalf, then sitting back and pretending you had nothing to do with it. The former is a shameful dereliction of your role as defender of freedom and democracy, but the latter is far worse. The latter means you actively worked to undermine your ally on behalf of its terrorist tormenters, all while insisting...
  • After UN veto, Kerry suggests Israel's West Bank foray spawning 'terrorism'

    12/24/2016 11:59:45 AM PST · by ColdOne · 35 replies ^ | 12/24/16 |
    Secretary of State John Kerry is defending the Obama administration’s decision to effectively allow the United Nations to condemn Israeli for attempting to build more settlements in the disputed West Bank, saying the “unprecedented” effort has spawned terrorism and violence that jeopardizes lasting peace in the region. The United States on Friday abstained from a U.N. Security Council vote to adopt a resolution condemning the Israel’s settlement expansion, which allowed for the measure’s passage and disapproval from incoming Republican President Donald Trump. “Things will be different after Jan. 20,” Trump tweeted minutes after the vote

    The United States could have killed a key United Nations resolution that condemned Israel for its West Bank settlements by voting against it rather than abstaining, former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said Friday night, but he thinks President Barack Obama took the action to "box the incoming Trump administration in." "This was a stab in the back against the Israelis," Bolton told Fox News' "Hannity" show Friday night. "It was entirely predictable. I would say this for people in the pro-Israel community in the United States who defended Obama's Middle East policy over these last eight years: You should have...

    Obama Considering Measure To Ban Criticism Of Islam Obama is considering a UN resolution that criminalizes speech Muslims consider blasphemous. Filed by Jessa Crane January 24th, 2015 If the Obama Administration has its way, the 1st Amendment will be subject to review by the United Nations. The UN is pushing member nations to adopt something they call UN resolution 16/18. This is a resolution- proposed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which is made up of 56 Islamic states- which would criminalize "hate speech" targeting Muslims. This wholly un-Constitutional proposal was first floated in the aftermath of 9/11 amid fears...

    Cuba is challenging a resolution in the U.N. General Assembly on human rights in North Korea, seeking to cut key language about a referral to the International Criminal Court that has Pyongyang nervous. The draft amendment obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press warns that such language sets “a dangerous precedent that could be applied in the future against any developing country.” North Korea has been shaken this year by a groundbreaking U.N. commission of inquiry report that detailed widespread human rights abuses in the impoverished but nuclear-armed country and warned that leader Kim Jong Un could be held accountable. The...

    The moves are a setback for the U.S. bid to strike Syria militarily for its alleged chemical weapons use. WASHINGTON — The Obama administration's move to punish Syria's government for allegedly using chemical weapons in a deadly attack last week appeared to suffer a setback Wednesday when the U.S. failed to get United Nations approval for use of force and British support was thrown into question. The collapse of diplomatic efforts aimed at securing a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Syria was expected. The British impediment was not.

    Exclusive: Joel Richardson sees prophets declaring 'utter devastation' on PA territories On Nov. 29, 2012, 138 nations passed U.N. Resolution 67/19 on “The Question of Palestine.” The resolution expresses support for the right of “the Palestinian people … to their independent State of Palestine.” In light of this deeply profound and historical event, and in light of the overwhelming and global bias against the nation of Israel, it is essential that all students of the Bible stop to consider what the Bible says about the future of both the nation of Israel and “Palestine.” When one surveys the many biblical...

    At the United Nations we are witnessing the creation ex nihilo of a foreign country, which never existed, and accepting the claims of the “Palestinian Arabs”, by giving them the land whose memory kept the Jews together as a people and brought them back to Jerusalem after the Holocaust. The Western community at the United Nations, including my miserable Italy, just adopted the Nazis' strateg. Cunning in wickedness, the Germans dangled before their victims the possibility of saving themselves at the expense of other Jews. In this case, the Jews to be sacrified are all of those living in Judea...

    Two US airmen have been rescued after ejecting from their F-15E Eagle warplane just before it crashed during allied operations in eastern Libya. The plane appeared to suffer mechanical failure near the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, the US military said. It came down after a third night of US-led coalition attacks on Col Muammar Gaddafi's forces, aimed at enforcing a UN resolution to protect civilians. Debate is continuing in the coalition over who should take command.

    UN resolution invalid, says Gaddafi (UKPA) – 25 minutes ago Muammar Gaddafi says the UN resolution authorising international military intervention in Libya is "invalid". The Libyan leader says he sent a message to President Barack Obama defending his decision to attack rebel cities: "If you found them taking over American cities by the force of arms, tell me what you would do." The statement came from the government spokesman at a news conference in Tripoli. Gaddafi also sent a letter to the French and British leaders, and the UN secretary general, saying the resolution violates the UN charter and saying...

    U.S. "deeply troubled" by N.

Security Council resolution, and urged Pyongyang to refrain from further launches. ADVERTISEMENT South Korea's Yonhap news agency earlier reported that North Korea may have fired a short-range missile off its east coast on Wednesday. A Seoul Defense Ministry official could not confirm the report. North Korea has fired at least two short-range missiles over the past month. "The United States is...

    U.S. Congressional committees to study resolution on Jewish refugees By PAUL LUNGEN Staff Reporter A bi-partisan resolution that addresses the plight of Jewish refugees from Arab lands has been referred to committees in both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. The progress of the bills through the law-making process is an important indicator that the Democratic-controlled Congress “has embraced [the resolutions]” in the same way the Republican-led Congress did, said Stanley Urman, executive director of Justice for Jews from Arab Countries (JJAC). The resolutions, which are nearly identical, are co-sponsored by four senators and four congressmen representing...

    The Russian Government had a spy inside the US military command who passed information to Saddam Hussein on America’s war plan in the opening days of the invasion of Iraq, the Pentagon announced yesterday. The explosive revelation was based on Iraqi documents captured since the fall of the dictator and were set last night to trigger a major diplomatic incident between Washington and Moscow. The Russian spy, who was not named, passed detailed information on US troop movements through the Russian Ambassador in Baghdad, who sent the information to Saddam’s personal secretary.
