The Obama Hollande Israel Conspiracy and the United Nations

 

President Obama and President Hollande have two major things in common at the junction; they are both lame ducks leaving office and both have a visceral hatred for Israel. The first jab at Israel belonged to Hollande with the first Paris so-called peace conference to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict back in June of last year which ended in complete and dishonorable failure. Amongst the attendees were President Hollande, US Secretary of State John Kerry, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Federica Mogherini and over twenty other Foreign Secretaries from European States and some Arab States (see picture below). Now they are going to go for round two with the same attendees and once again leaving any meeting with Israeli leadership until after the conference. There is also the claim, a valid fact, that they will also be meeting with Palestinian Authority President Abbas after the conference while nobody is to mention the December meetings in Paris with Abbas, Kerry and Ayrault drawing up the basics and demands of the Arabs to destroy or mortally wound Israel as the conclusion to the conference. With the same attendees, how are they planning on making things different; and that has a singular answer, President Obama. We are willing to bet that even if President Obama is not there for the start of the conference, if necessary he will attend at some point and remind the various attendees of the bold step of allowing Israel to be made vulnerable through his bold actions at the United Nations right before Christmas. President Obama will be there to challenge these leaders to take the bold move to really make peace by recognizing Palestine and all members nations to the conference doing so in accord with having the conference findings formalized and President Obama will take it to the Security Council and have them pass the same resolution formally recognizing Palestine and setting its borders with half of Jerusalem as their capital city all using the Green Line. Why not place a gun to every Israelis head and telling them leave or die in a hail of a million rockets raining down from the Judean hills, the heights overlooking almost all of Israel including its heavily populated central heartlands around Tel Aviv and five other major cities. Such a forced peace resolution would make Jerusalem undefendable as well as Tel Aviv, Dimona, Haifa, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Netanya and all the suburbs and industrial centers throughout Israel.

This conference is a set up for the imposition of a suicide peace upon Israel and guarantees war will start within days of Trump being sworn in as President as it is likely that Abbas promised to wait a short period, probably very short, after President Obama has left office and the Democrats and media can place all the blame on President Trump simply because he is the one in the White House when the fighting commenced and will be charged with doing too little to prevent any Israeli response. That is all the world cares about any longer, Israel and their making any efforts to survive and protect their citizens which the world sees as simply millions of Jews. Whatever one does, do not even try to tell these intelligentsia that Israel has almost as many non-Jewish citizens including Arab Christians, Arab Muslims, Druze, Bedouin, Baha’I and many others which make up a full quarter of the population. These unfortunates will be the ones mourned should they be harmed and Israel will be blamed for their deaths as well as receiving demands they stand down and not overreact to the attacks and that negotiations are being held again across the capitals of the world in emergency sessions and Israel must give them the opportunity to forge peace. The only peace they will be attempting to forge is what the Arab world demands, no more Israel and all the Jews gone. None of these noble nations for peace would allow a single Jew to enter their nation should Israel face the necessity to evacuate her population leaving just the military to try and defend the nation. The response of the world would mimic their responses from World War II when they knew about the Concentration Camps and did nothing, not even bomb the railroad tracks five miles to the east and destroy the junction to Auschwitz Buchenwald when striking the train depot just down the tracks. Then there was the Voyage of the Damned, the fated MS St. Louis and its slow trip back to Germany from Cuba and the refusal by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to allow a single Jew to enter as a refugee of an endangered peoples as they are now taking Syrians, Afghans and other Arab refugees under President Obama. Actually, the fact is President Obama would likely insist the Palestinians delay any attack until some amount of time after he retires and can claim to have washed his hands of Israel and the Middle East and leave blame heaped upon the new President Trump with the mainstream media valued assist.

The perfidy of all involved, which remarkably pretty much leaves Israel out of the picture except for a possible photo op for French President Francois Hollande, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, US Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama immediately after the conference and immediately before informing him of the agreement and concurrently with it being presented for consideration at the United Nations Security Council. This is the opportunity which these leftist have been drooling over. With President Obama showing a glimmer of light, a crack in the armor which the United States had provided Israel defending them in the Security Council but now the United States has taken a bow and retired to the sidelines allowing mischief to run wild. This just might result in the second phase, the recognition which formalizes President Obama’s initial assault with their abstaining allowing condemnation of any Israeli or Jewish presence beyond the Green Line and demanding any peace be based on the Green Line erasing UNSC Res 242 allowing for recognition to follow by any nation of Palestine Arab State using the Green Line for the new border. This would be President Obama’s legacy and one he would proudly hold as his most outstanding accomplishment while secretly knowing he had simply instigated yet another war. Why should his ability to destroy nations and start wars not continue to the last day of this Nobel Peace Prize Laureate?

 

The Paris conference had originally been aimed to be scheduled for somewhere right before Christmas when the June confab failed. This was postponed and was set for after New Year’s but with some of the Foreign Secretaries requesting a later date it was then set for March 15 thus making “Beware of the Ides of March” an enticing title. For reasons not made public, the scheduled meeting was moved back to January and set for the fifteenth once again. One can only wonder what forces in the universe converged on all the attending nations to return the conference to five days before President Obama is scheduled to be retired from the Presidency. President Obama might be putting some real mileage onto Air Force One in the final week of his Presidency with a possible pressure trip to Paris to insist that the rest of the world do their part of the power squeeze against Israel and formally recognize Palestine. He will claim how he is depending on their taking the bull by the horns and wrestling with reality as this may be the last time that the world has the correct people in the White House and in governments across Europe such that peace can be forged if they steel themselves to the task. There will be arm twisting, back slapping, and compliments galore, but if that fails then the threats get lined up, but a forced peace will be the only result President Obama will settle for, anything less he will take as a personal rebuke. The reasoning before was that they could not set any borders as UNSC 242 and the careful language would not allow such to be forced on Israel. That was the reasoning behind the latest UNSC 2334 setting the new border negotiations to be set around the Green Line making using the Green Line and blaming Israel for not acting faster and sacrificing for peace as the reason the rest of the world had to step in and set a border while such was a possibility. This has been planned in the White House as their contingency plan should the impossible happen, Hillary Clinton losing the election. Never underestimate Hillary Clinton when it comes to messing up even a given thing and managing to lose an election, even to a confirmed clown. With President Trump now looming on the horizon with a complete Cabinet filled with pro-Israel group of candidates, President Obama is making this appear as a threat to peace and not the return of the United States support for her ally. President Obama does not see Israel as an ally but as the bane behind all that is wrong in the world and the basis of all wars, especially those in the Middle East and North Africa. President Obama has painted the lack of a settled peace between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs as the most pressing and necessary emergency the nations of Europe and the Middle East to work with him in this tight schedule before the inauguration and this opportunity being eclipsed by the end of President Obama’s term on January 20 about noon. Imagine President Obama at the United Nations Security Council on January 20 at about 9:45 crying to the other members to hurry and get the Paris conference adopted by the United Nations Security Council and make it under, please, please Chapter Seven to make it a binding resolution and not merely a Chapter Six which is a nonbinding resolution which is unenforceable and depends on both sides accepting the resolution. Chapter Six Resolution would leave doubt as to whether Israel could be made to accept the Green Line meaning that almost a million Israelis would need be relocated, a monumental imposition and something near impossible to do without severe destruction to the Israeli economy and making an instant housing crisis. What everyone is ignoring is that the Palestinian Authority would reject such an offer even if it were a Chapter Seven as they are sworn to only accept all the land and the destruction of Israel, everything else is too little to end their continued demands and terror war.

 

The coming Paris peace conference is the setting of the final trap by the Obama administration should they manage to persuade the European Foreign Secretaries to accept making a resolution recognizing a Palestinian State and setting the borders recognized by the international community to be the Green Line. Their agreement is the necessary introduction which is required by President Obama as the means for requesting similar action by the United Nations Security Council and if the Paris agreement can be done with a unanimous agreement with no dissenting votes, then perhaps such pressure of universal agreement in Paris would suffice to force even that Chapter Seven resolution and provide President Obama his vitally needed legacy as thus far no such success exists and his legacy is simply lacking. This is urgent legacy building and President Obama will refuse to be denied. What is the terrible truth is that should President Obama get his legacy, the world will be that much closer to a great confrontation between two cultures, one where preserving life is the greatest gift while the other finds glory though death and honors the fallen over the living. The world will have to choose sides and it appears that at Paris, Europe might decide to side with death over prizing life and set the wheels of destiny into motion. President Obama will be getting the greatest legacy possible, the legacy of destroying much of society having it all but surrender to the purveyors of death over the guardian of life.

With Trump Comes Stark Reality

 

Already this last year of the Presidency of Barack Obama there has been a dozen terrorist attacks which have been verified as such. In one mere twelve hour stretch in September the American people found out it may not be safe to go shopping in a mall in Minnesota, go running a five kilometer not so fun run in New Jersey or walk window-shopping on the streets of New York City without risk of terrorism striking and potentially injuring or taking one’s most precious life. The United States has faced car bombings, remote detonated bombings, suicide bombings and shooting sprees where the attacker was only stopped when shot dead by an armed citizen or law enforcement officer. All of these terrorist styled attacks were first perfected against Israel where initially they received minimal notice by the Western World media as it was just Israel. Often any reporting on such terror attacks in Israel were covered in such a manner that it appeared as if the Israelis had shot the terrorist who then retaliated with his bombing, shooting or whatever attack as the title was often Palestinian shot by Israeli Defense Force or Palestinian Killed by Israeli Police or other misleading phrasing. As such attacks spread to Europe and across other Middle East and North African Arab nations where their Christian, Kurdish, Hindu or Buddhist minorities were often the targets with some attacks were Sunni-Shia violence and these made the reporting even in Israel more accurate. Now that attacks have spread to the United States the reporting has become stark noted by the insistence after each attack initially the authorities deny any possible tie to terrorism and warning against jumping to any conclusions that Muslims were at all involved in the attacks. Eventually the reality brakes through and the terrorist ties were obvious to the most casual of observers from the start and are finally admitted.

 

The lag time between attacks being perpetrated in Israel and their coming to the United States has thus far been measured in years if not decades granting Americans a reprieve from the more recent types of attacks used in Israel. Apparently this lag time has been shortened considerably with the terror attack at Ohio State University. The car ramming and following stabbing spree until shot by law enforcement officer November 28th brought that lag time down to the slimmest of measure as such are only the most recent of attacks even in Israel. This is not good news for Americans as there are no safe spaces from car rammings and stabbing attacks making everyone almost everywhere potentially under threat. The last couple of years in Israel had seen numerous car rammings which were all part of what was informally referred to as the Stabbing Intifada which has tailed off but not really completely come to an end. We all pray here in Israel, as you do in the United States, that this will be the only time you suffer from such an assault on your persons and communal safety; but we all know the unfortunate reality. Once a new form of terror attack is used it will continue until mitigating means are found for defeating such attacks. Here in Israel train stations and bus stops now have thick five centimeter diameter, cement filled posts a embedded deep into the pavement protecting the people from vehicle rammings. Stabbing attacks are only avoided through vigilance and a communal reaction making the attacker into the hunted as through mutual defense we are all safer.

 

Recently, though largely uncovered by Western media, Israel suffered yet another massive terror assault upon the entire nation through forest fires largely set by Arab arsonists. Neighboring nations, including Croatia, Greece, Jordan, Egypt, Italy, Russia and Turkey, responded with firefighting manpower and equipment for which we are grateful. The United States sent its “Supertanker” which is the largest firefighting aircraft in the world. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas sent a coalition of eight fire trucks and 40 firefighters which were used largely in Judea and Samaria as nowhere was immune from the horrors. In the single week during the final days before the rains came but whipped by the high winds accompanying seasonal weather changes Israel suffered one-thousand-seven-hundred-seventy-three separate fires which consumed approximately thirty-two-thousand acres with most located in the Haifa region. In some cases fires were set and once the fire-stations responded fires were set at the station houses themselves. Despite over a hundred people suffered injuries there were no fatalities this season. Over five-hundred homes were completely destroyed while tens of thousands were evacuated at some points. As of last counting there have been over thirty arrests of arsonists all of whom have proven to be Arab terrorists. Apart from the horrific damage to the parks and some neighborhoods the next most distressing reality of this past arson season was the repeated lack of coverage in the Western media once again the reality of “it’s only Israel” coming through loud and clear. There were no Israeli lives lost and, just as important if not more so, no terrorist arsonists shot resisting arrest or in the act of setting fires. Had a single arsonist been shot or otherwise injured, the cries of using disproportional and unnecessary force would have echoed from Rome to San Francisco and from Athens to Chicago and all stops inbetween. Instead, with lack of recriminations to be aired against Israel, the wave of arson was met with deafening silence.

 

The recent car ramming and stabbing attack does pose as a warning shot before the bow on the streets of America as it signaled a closing in the delay time between introduction of a newer terror wave in Israel and its application in the United States. We have already witnessed the use of ramming in Europe with the van being driven through a Nantes, France crowded market injuring almost a dozen and killing one victim plus the absolutely horrific Nice, France assault where a van filled with grenades and weapons was driven through a crowded 14th of July Bastille Day celebration killing eighty-four people, which included several children. The short delay from the wide use in Israel of car and vehicle rammings and stabbing attacks to their use across Europe and then to the United States bodes a troubling future for all three. Other places across Europe and Canada suffering ramming terror attacks have been but not limited to Glasgow International Airport attack in Scotland; Dijon, France; plus another attack with the Saint Jean sur Richelieu attack which occurred in Quebec, Canada on October 20, 2014. Now with the Ohio State University attack the United States has suffered its second vehicle ramming, the other being the SUV attack at the University of North Carolina. Then there were the greatest and most horrific rammings of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center Towers, Pentagon and the foiled attack which was brought down by the heroes of that day, the passengers on Flight 93 southeast of Pittsburgh.

The fear now should be from arson attacks, especially those set upwind a relatively short distance from built-up areas such as apartment complexes, business parks and housing developments. Also vulnerable would be deserted areas within some of America’s cities where a fire could be sparked that would then threaten downtown areas where urban renewal borders deserted areas yet to be rejuvenated. There should be some research performed to determine if previous fires may have been started as a form of terrorist attack as such arson attacks often target not only forest and scrublands but also target close-by developed regions. Israel has faced these firestorm attacks twice yearly, the spring winds and the fall winds which provide the necessary impetus for the use of directional winds to fan flames towards their real target, people. One can only pray that through vigilance and the formal fire-watch systems in place in the United States Park Systems stems any arson and other fires before they can rise and threaten people’s lives and property. Sufficient damage occurs already and needs little boost from intentional arson fires set with damage of people and structures as their actual target. Then there were the recent fires in Tennessee which are still being investigated by authorities.

 

But with the coming of the new administration of President Trump there will be a new attitude towards terrorist attacks and how they are treated by the FBI, Justice Department and other enforcement agencies within the government. No longer will the initial reports be that there is absolutely no indication that what appears to have been a terrorist attack actually is a terror attack. Rather any caution shown will still recognize that terror is always a potential cause and if it looks like terror, feels like terror and sounds like terror, then there will be the recognized likelihood that terror was a possibility. Under President Trump there is not to be the candy-coating of reality and the American people will be trusted with being given truth, often unvarnished truth as they will finally be seen and treated as grown-ups who can handle the truth. There will be no condescending hierarchy who claim that the American people cannot handle the truth and that only they, the elite have the capability to handle the truth and thus they claim they stand on the wall deciding what you deserve to know and what you must be protected against. We will have to wait and see which Americans are capable of handling the unvarnished, unsoftened, straight truth and which Americans will be demanding safe-spaces placed and trigger warnings with their newscasts. With a more open and honest evaluation of reality and the inclusion of the American people in the decision process by having an open debate, the United States will likely return taking their place as a leader of the free world. It will likely make most Americans pleased to be treated as the adults they presumably are, and we pray we have not misjudged our friends across the waves. It will be wonderful to have an ally back.

Time to End Minhal Ezrachi and COGAT

 

Both Minhal Ezrachi (Civil Administration) and COGAT (Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories) are obsolete, counterproductive, anti-Israeli, anti-Zionist and well beyond their use-by-date. They both were established during the heady and oft wrong-headed days after the Six Day War designed to administrate over the formerly Jordanian occupied lands, illegal under every last line of applicable International Law and solely recognized by Pakistan and Britain, with the potential purpose to permit their ready status to be traded with Jordan in exchange for a peace treaty. Well, Israel has her peace treaty and Jordan renounced their false claims thus the reverting of these lands of Judea and Samaria back to their rightful owner under applicable International Law, Israel. That should have been the end of the story and Israel should have annexed these lands legally registering the residents as resident alien citizens granting them limited political rights within the areas they constitute a majority but barring them from national elections until a means, path and completion of becoming Israeli citizens was accomplished. Those refusing such should have been encouraged to emigrate even to the point of bribery. That, after peace was reached with Jordan would have been the end of the issue.

 

Instead, Minhal Ezrachi, COGAT, the elite ranking officers with the Minister of Defense (or without if need be) plus the Supreme Court backed by a core set of Ministers of the Knesset from both sides of the aisle all support the status-quo. All of these disparate entities have a stake in this game as it extends their control over the lives of the littler people starting with the Israelis residing in Judea and Samaria and continuing through the remainder of the population. There are any numbers of reasons this fiasco which could be resolved and settled once and for all is instead perpetrated indefinitely. Most of the players are fiercely guarding their power to control people and areas plus retaining their well-paid positions as commanders in the IDF and their path to the highest echelons and beyond into politics or a cushy job once they retire from serving in the IDF. These are careerists more than soldiers who claim they know what is best in Judea and Samaria constantly painting the area as fraught with dangers with a wild-west kind of vibe where only the Military keeps things from worsening. They also prevent change and thus progress to a solution. They see their responsibility to extend a situation in such a manner such that the IDF continues to rule the area, specifically the Israeli or, more accurately, the Jewish Israelis always calling for additional soldiers and funding as everything is forever escalating with just the right inclusion of progress which becomes erased and any freedoms further curtailed at every terrorist strike.

 

The Supreme Court simply is chasing that perfect society as they envision Israel. They view Israel quite differently than the average Israeli. The Supreme Court is largely a political dinosaur from the 1950’s Israel as the Supreme Court is largely, along with the position of State Attorney General, a self-replicating monster which perpetuates the socialist utopianism of the original court with extreme leftists all with minimal numbers as exceptions. They would feel at home on the Haaretz Editorial Board. They could best be described as Universalists and post-Zionists. They believe in Israeli democracy over Israel as the Jewish Homeland which they view as too exclusive; and they are multiculturalists as well as ultimate protectors of the human rights for everyone and even more so the determined underclass, in Israel’s case, the Palestinian Arabs. The Supreme Court Justices treasure their acceptance by the elite of Europe, particularly the leading government figures and the elite of the European Union. The Justices crave the approval of these leaders and paragons of human rights, post-modernism, multiculturalism and, of course, internationalism which call for the erasure of borders and above all the acceptance of the other who while having been raised under oppressions existing from their past treatment at the hands of the Western World and whose culture is equal if not superior to the Judeo-Christian, never to mention Jewish culture described and laid out in Torah, and must be not only accepted but treated with respect denied Western Culture. These are open border with state guaranteed wage, a combination long proven to be the views adopted just before the fall of near countless civilizations throughout history.

 

What makes all of this far more theater of the absurd than simple fiasco is for reasons unknown Jordanian law is enforced in Judea and Samaria by the IDF as directed by COGAT and the Minhal Ezrachi backed by the Supreme Court and allowed such insanity by the powers on both sides in the Knesset with a few select exceptions. Observing Jordanian Law is anti-Semitic as selling land to a Jew is punishable by death and simply being a Jew on land under Jordanian law is illegal punishable by deportation to Israel within the Green Line, the apparent intent of numerous NGO’s and much of the Muslim world plus the rest of the planet with few exceptions, or death. By observing Jordanian Law it was thought it would facilitate the return to Jordanian occupation. This was despite knowing that the Jordanian occupation was outright illegal as the border between Jordan and Israel was set as the Jordan River in so many treaties including but not limited to the San Remo Conference, the Treaty of Sèvres, the ,a href=https://beyondthecusp.wordpress.com/treaty-of-lausanne/ target=blank>Treaty of Lausanne amongst others which culminated World War I as well as Article 80 of the United Nations Carter which further codified the Mandate System. These treaties give Israel first right to all of Judea and Samaria as well as voiding any and all of the land grant provisions by which leading members of the Jordanian government and friends of the King were granted deed to great stretches of these lands such that all the lands were gifted in this manner and largely was never developed. These land claims are utilized by NGO’s such but not limited to Peace Now, Yesh Din and Rabbis for Human Rights to sue any and all Israeli building in Judea and Samaria. These demolitions brought on through the Supreme Court by direct filing these NGO’s attack Jewish buildings from a single stand-alone home to entire cities such as Amona, which is currently under threat, as well as other “Jewish settlements” which are considerably larger and more developed (see picture below). Direct filing with the Supreme Court is legal and done in this case so that the liberal, left-leaning Supreme Court Justices can rule without requiring any investigation into the legality or even existence of actual Arab ownership. Evidence is taken as if vetted and verified thus these NGO’s need no tangible proof and an entire city can be ordered erased. When cases are filed to actually claim the land in court, many such cases are resigned from the docket before even a hearing as the claimant has withdrawn knowing the entire claim to be bogus.

 

Larger Jewish Settlement Under Threat of Demolitions

Many of these NGO’s including those licensed and claiming to be homegrown pro-Israel groups are part of a post-Zionist, leftist, universalist groups which are all predominantly financed by European, American and other Western and Universalist entities receiving often less than one-third and some next to no funding originating in Israel. Some of the monies come from individuals directly, surreptitiously or through front groups or organizations; more from individual governments who also use other NGO’s to put distance, deniability and insulation between them and the monies; and some is funneled through the long and many tentacles of the United Nations and its various groups which are more money laundering operations than anything else. While almost every nation in this so-called civilized world has laws disallowing NGO’s from obtaining majority funding from outside the nation, some requiring well above half be domestically raised, whenever Israel proposes such a law the Europeans and American leftists, progressives and far right haters of Jews and Israel rise and make a cacophony of cries of complaints, screams of unfairness, yelping that democracy is under attack, squawking that freedom is being curtailed and other hooting and hollering over any-and-everything under the son being squelched and a fascism rising in Israel. All these accusations are made to prevent Israel having the same protections these other nations enjoy. This demanding Israel meet a standard not required of other nations has a name, anti-Semitism. Some claim it is anti-Zionism while others anti-Israel in the occupation, but all three are identical, demanding the Jew, the Jewish State, Israel to be judged by a different set of rules designed for the destruction and dismantling of the national home of the Jews. Yep, that is anti-Semitism.

 

Finally, much of this is the Israeli leadership’s fault. That includes all the leadership; the IDF, the Supreme Court, the media and especially Knesset and political hierarchy. The Knesset and political hierarchy could annex all of Area C with a simple bill with the only thing potentially blocking such a move would be the Supreme Court claiming it had some reason to belay and void the legislation passed by the Knesset. The way beyond that would be change a couple of punctuation and pass the legislation again and again and make it the biggest thing since Jews ate manna in the wilderness and allow the majority to get behind the idea and carry the day. Then Israel could city by city set up local governance for the Arab Palestinians, the former Jordanians, the Arabs holding other than legal Israeli passports; grant them semi-autonomy over the areas where they reside but keep them barred from general elections until they decide and take a path to citizenship. Emigration enticement with assistance in the form of a buyout of property with an added percentage for a clear deed should be Israeli policy including a records check to assure the land was not sold or belonging to another Jordanian/Palestinian Arab or other party. Even in such cases some form of emigration enticement should be in order. Emigrants must be made aware that any unauthorized return within Israeli borders will be dealt with harshly followed by an immediate deportation after prison sentence has been carried out. Israel honestly will by necessity have to annex these lands as soon as Hamas or Islamic State takes over after any remotely free elections. The Palestinian Authority (PA) is mortally wounded and entering its death throes. Abbas is entering the tenth or eleventh year of a five year term. Elections were once again cancelled; the PA had cancelled elections numerous times since their scheduled date of spring of 2009. Law and order is breaking down and radical Islamists are banding together and arming for whoever decides they want the base of operations so close to the heart of Israel. The time to act was actually immediately after the Six Day War with another opportunity immediately after Jordan made peace with Israel. Unfortunately, the Knesset and political hierarchy will continue dragging their feet and claiming that acting is impossible and need wait until the climate changes for the better. We’ve watched the world climate towards and concerning Israel and here have noted climate change and it has been the worst. Time has come to let the dust fly and settle where it will. Waiting has ceased to be the answer. There are six days before the Presidential Election in the United States after which President Barack Hussein Obama will be free to call a special session and pass a binding resolution negating all recognition currently existing for annexation of Judea and Samaria by the Security Council passing a Section Seven Resolution establishing the Palestinian State with the Green Line as its border and the whole of Eastern Jerusalem as its capital. Such a binding resolution would alter International Law possibly forever and would establish and likely add as a full member the new nation of Palestine. This is why action must be decided now and no delay must be permitted. The power to do so lies with the Knesset and the IDF could assist by working to prevent and end their assisting circumventing and neutering Israelis’ rights to settle our land. If we wait, we lose.
