Jewish Homes in Israel Infuriate the World

Jewish Homes in Israel Infuriate the World

Israel had promised the Palestinian Authority that should they actually go through with their petition to the United Nations for recognition as a nonmember observer state that Israel would consider the Oslo Accords rendered dead and there would be consequences. Israel announced the consequences when they announced plans to construct three-thousand new housing units in and around Eastern Jerusalem and Ma’aleh Adumim. This almost instantly roused a universal outcry by virtually the entire world. Britain, France, Italy and others called their Israeli Ambassadors onto the carpet demanding an explanation as to what had possessed the Israeli leadership to build housing for Jews in and around the capital city of Israel. Oh, the audacity. Additionally, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and numerous others decried the injury this move by Israel was going to have on the peace process and the likelihood that the Two State Solution could continue to be viable. There were announcements from President Obama’s administration and others from the United States decrying the Israelis effrontery by building housing for Jews. Apparently the idea of Israel building housing anywhere near Jerusalem, and especially if it was built between Jerusalem and Ma’aleh Adumim, was causing more damage to the possibility for a negotiated peace between Israel and the Palestinians than was the application earlier this week to the United Nations for recognition of statehood bypassing any negotiations with Israel by the Palestinian Authority.

The problem with the World reacting with such virulent bile to Israeli building of housing is that the number one complaint that by doing so Israel is breaking International Law is dishonest and most of these people are fully aware of their deceit. When the United Nations General Assembly passed Resolution 181 on November 29, 1947, the suggestion for a partition of the lands which remained from the British Mandate was fully rejected by the Arab League, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Sudan, Transjordan, Yemen, numerous Arab entities and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and instead many of these same entities immediately attacked Israel with the intent of driving all the Jews into the sea or the grave. Their refusal to accept Resolution 181 made it null and void. By refusing and annulling Resolution 181 they then forced all the remaining lands of the British Mandate Lands to return to the previous negotiations between the British and the Zionists. The previous state of these lands was defined by the Churchill White Papers which established the country of Transjordan, later to become Jordan. In this agreement between the Arab Leadership, the Hashemites and the Zionist leadership it was decided that the 78% of the land existing east of the Jordan River to the border of Iraq to be given as the Palestinian Arab State and ruled by the Hashemite Family and the remaining 22% of the Mandate Lands west of the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea would remain undivided and constitute the Jewish homeland. Presumably, these lands cannot be divided again unless the Israelis choose to allow such additional partitions of these lands.

Even if one were to claim that Israel has given their intent to further partition the lands by signing the Oslo Accords, let us look a little deeper. The current divisions of the lands of Judea and Samaria, also referred to as the West Bank, are the only part in question as Gaza has been ceded by Israel to the Palestinian Authority who then lost it in a revolutionary coup by Hamas who now possesses all of Gaza. The areas of Judea and Samaria have been divided into three separate areas, Areas A, B and C. Area A is under complete Palestinian Authority control and over 80% of the Palestinian Authority population resides within Area A. Area C is under complete Israeli control and over 80% of the Jewish communities are within Area C. Area B is under Palestinian legislative control and joint Palestinian-Israeli security control and the area contains communities of both Palestinian and Jews. This is the closest the Israelis and Palestinian Authority have ever come in attempts to reach an accord acceptable to both sides. Logic would dictate that the presumed eventual peace accord which the World holds as the pinnacle of Middle East peace would leave Area A and Area C to be held by the Palestinian Authority and Israel respectively and Area B would be divided between the two entities thus setting the boundaries between the two sides. But it is much easier to spend a week granting the Palestinians recognition of statehood and demonize Israel for building housing for Jews within the areas which they have already reached agreement with the Palestinians that the area in question, all of which is within Area C, is under complete and undisputed Israeli control, both security and legislative. Something tells me that the World, if left to their innermost and deepest desires, would gladly hand all the lands over to the Palestinians and tell the Jews that this was for their own interests and to find a way to live with it. We know how that idea ends, but why would that upset most of the World.

  1. Hello,

    What upset me is that in the West Bank For Instance, Farmers YES Farmers make their living on very hard ground, some of those ground been bought ..and it has taken Generations to make it works, and what ? Because of some International “whatever” people who haven’t feel the Heat and sweating over long labour …to get what : Been Said That you are illegal ?
    That those field should go back to some desert sand, with anything on it, not even for a camel to eat !!!
    As Those Farmers “heroes” Of nature bring food, and food for the surrounding neighbours, who are ..what ? Arabs !

    Some of Those who scream for Justice should see the realities on the ground ! Because For a fact, that those farmers were to leave, and go Arabs will go very shortly after them, because they’ll be starving.. and Desert Back To Desert, the Sand recovering once again everything !

    It is like some who can’t stand that some breath, and to go against that, empty all the air and realizing later for themselves that they can’t live without AIR either !

    The World : ZERO!
    Israel : All the rest beside Zero !

    Just, Pure, Common, Sense !

  2. I believe that this is Zechariah 12. I feel now that we are living in a horror movie. Thank G-d he is in control and has prophesied this beforehand, as the world has gone mad and I only see it getting worse. Man has run amok! Also thank you for the information on Bridgette Gabriel. It was really enlightening.

  3. Linda, thanks!

    Zechariah 12

    3 On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. 4 On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares the LORD. “I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations.

    I believe it is important that Nations understand what they are doing or to what there going into, to take a step back and see .. I say that because I know that some people among nations think to Do The Right Thing.. and too often it is that part what make move the Nations Toward becoming against Israel. ( When someone say clearly he hate jews and whatever he hate least it is clear and we can move on..but when people think with their heart and start to say Israel is harsh on this one.. and start already moving down the line that will makes votes in the U.N. and a general : Israel going too far we must say and do something.. and even if at the start the two were in opposition .. well, they finally find themselves side by side and voting exactly the same as the one who from the start was going vote ..whatever.. against Israel.

    The Word : Gathered .. meaning bringing together. Bringing from different starting point to a common point.. the call of this “Gathering” is Obvious, and the point already define..

    I just hope that some realise and refuse the path made in the front of them !
    And why not : STAND BY Israel !

    GD Bless
