Israel, PLO, Jordan, EU and UN must agree on boundaries of Palestine

Israel, PLO, Jordan, EU and UN must agree on boundaries of PalestineEnding the Arab-Jewish conflict over the territory called “historic Palestine” has little chance of success until its territorial boundaries are first agreed between Israel, the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), Jordan, the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN).

Rima Najjar—a retired professor of English literature at Al-Quds University - claims in a recent article that the territory of “historic Palestine” has been subdivided into Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip but is effectively controlled by the Jewish State.

The following facts contradict her assertions:

Venezuela: An Aberration or an Abomination?

Venezuela: An Aberration or an Abomination?Last Tuesday, President Trump finally was able to deliver the official State of the Union address to the American people, and in his speech, he referred to Venezuela.  He declared that “We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom, and that the “United States officially recognized the legitimate government of Venezuela, and its new interim President, Juan Guaido.” Looking at the faces of many of the elected representatives and senators that were shown on television during the voicing of this support, it could be detected that there were several elected officials who were disappointed in U.S. support of Venezuela and Guaido. Yet, many appeared ready to throw a fit when Trump stated emphatically “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

USA and EU embroiled in Hamas and PFLP plans to destroy Israel

USA and EU embroiled in Hamas and PFLP plans to destroy IsraelIsrael’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs has issued a 79 page report exposing a network of members of Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) embedded in Pro-Palestinian non-Government organisations (NGOs) based outside Israel that openly operate in the USA and European Union (EU).

The Report “Terrorists in suits”—is a must-read - detailing:

“How terrorists came to hold key positions in NGOs promoting the Boycott Divestment and Sanction (BDS) campaign against the State of Israel; and how, through these NGOs, they exploit Western governmental funding, philanthropic foundations, financial platforms and civil society to advance their goal of dismantling the State of Israel.”

The “Bolivarian Diaspora” from Venezuela: People Fleeing a Political Cancer

The Bolivarian Diaspora from Venezuela: People Fleeing a Political CancerThe Socialism that destroyed the nation of Venezuela is like an ideological or political cancer. The “Bolivarian Diaspora,” which has been recognized by numerous observers as the largest recorded refugee crisis in the Americas, is a direct result of the “Bolivarian Revolution” initiated by Hugo Chavez and prolonged by Nicolás Maduro. The already strained economies of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, and Peru, are now facing even greater economic stress   as these nations are all attempting to do what they are able to help the fleeing Venezuelan refugees. The problem did not originate in their nations, yet the problem is generating collateral problems as it explodes beyond the borders of Venezuela.

Communism Making Comeback as Globalism

Communism Making Comeback as Globalism“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and then bid the geldings to be fruitful.” – C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

“It’s a brave new world,” one in which radicals are elected to high office in a system more corrupt and ignorant than ever imagined possible. The voters believe in the “shiny illusions of socialist/communist hell and are racing to implementation.”

Americans are not quite sure when the surge to communism finally planted its roots in the population at large and things began to change. Some argue it was the 1950s, others the 1960s. Over time, the corrupt main stream media and the progressive-controlled education system brought us slowly but surely to today when good people are overwhelmed by manufactured news and personal attacks meant to marginalize anyone who disagrees with the socialist agenda, while the entire system of liberty and justice for all is collapsing.

The Coup in Venezuela: the Outcome of Failed a Socialist State

The Coup in Venezuela: the Outcome of Failed a Socialist State(Editor’s Note: CFP columnist Dennis Jamison, who is in Ecuador, says there are interesting American mainstream media-ignored events unfolding there: “I wrote this article to help the folks up North understand better understand what is really going on there.”)

Ecuador-This past Wednesday in Venezuela the head of the National Assembly, Vice President Juan Guaidó, proclaimed himself to be the new president of his nation. This sparked a serious response from many governments of the world, most taking sides with the new president, or newly “elected” one, Nicolás Maduro. And, the unfortunate circumstance in this international incident is that the average citizen in the United States was not aware of the reality. This is not because it is not news, it is because the mainstream media in the U.S. seem to not consider it news of significance, which in and of itself, is another reason why the MSM is considered untrustworthy by an increasing number of average citizens.

UN Security Council’s Futile Talkfest on the Venezuela Crisis

UN Security Council’s Futile Talkfest on the Venezuela CrisisThe United Nations Security Council met on Saturday to discuss the crisis in Venezuela, after overcoming a procedural vote demanded by Russia. The Putin regime claimed that the economic, political and humanitarian crisis wrought by the catastrophic actions of the Maduro regime was not a proper agenda item for the Security Council to consider. The Security Council, by a procedural vote of 9 in favor (Belgium, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Kuwait, Peru, Poland, United Kingdom, United States) to 4 against (China, Equatorial Guinea, Russian Federation, South Africa), with 2 abstentions (Côte d’Ivoire, Indonesia), adopted the agenda item on Venezuela.

Let Freedom Ring in Venezuela!

Let Freedom Ring in Venezuela!Fellow Americans!

Let the freedom ring all over the world! The modern history is very clear and disturbing. Utopic Socialism and its twin sibling, the Communist Dictatorship, in any form and shape do not create a prosperous society. It causes deprivation and redistribution of wealth leading to their kind of equality for all! That is everyone is equally poor, hungry and miserable! Looking at the recent uprising in Caracas and at all those poor people struggling to survive in the tyranny of Latin American communism, I have many flashbacks from Eastern Europe, 70 years ago.

UN Offers Bromides While Venezuela Teeters on the Brink of Collapse

UN Offers Bromides While Venezuela Teeters on the Brink of CollapseVenezuela, an oil-rich country that was once amongst the most prosperous countries in the Latin American region, is now in a state of economic and political chaos. Venezuela’s socialist leaders – first, Hugo Chávez and then his successor, Nicolas Maduro - have turned the country into an economic basket case because of their gross mismanagement, corruption and destructive economic policies. The inflation rate could reach an unheard of 10 million percent in 2019. There is a humanitarian crisis of monumental proportions, with the country’s population suffering from severe hunger and an urgent health crisis. Millions of Venezuelans have fled the country. Amidst all this chaos, Maduro was sworn in as president for a second term two weeks ago following an “election” last year that many inside and outside of the country believe was rigged.

“State of Palestine” set to confront Trump at United Nations

State of Palestine set to confront Trump at United NationsThe bizarre Handover ceremony of Egypt’s Chairmanship of the Group of 77 to the “State of Palestine” for 2019 will enable this non-existent and non-member State of the United Nations to play a leading role in the 74 years old farce—“The Question of Palestine and the United Nations” (PUN).

“The State of Palestine” does not meet the criteria for statehood required under the 1933 Montevideo Convention.

The Group of 77 (“the Bloc”) contains 133 of the 193 member states of the United Nations—ensuring the automatic passage of all United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolutions they propose.

The United Nations is trying to grab control of worldwide immigration policies

While President Donald Trump seeks funding for a border wall, the United Nations is seeking control of migration policies worldwide, with a campaign configured to undermine America’s sovereignty and control over its own borders. And, yes, if the U.N. has its way, America will help pay for it.

As with many of the U.N.‘s turf grabs, this campaign to co-opt national migration policy has been years in the making. Incremental in its origins, and swaddled in U.N. jargon and procedure, it has largely escaped the U.S. headlines. But it’s now reached the stage of becoming dangerous.

THE SHARON-BUSH LETTERS, AND WHY PEACE IS NOT POSSIBLE WITH PALESTINIANS

In 2002, then-prime minister Ariel Sharon wrote a letter to US president George W. Bush, informing him of his intentions to make a bold new initiative for peace by removing thousands of Jews from their homes in the Gaza Strip and completely withdrawing all Israeli forces, and he received a response from Bush.

In this letter, Sharon wrote, “The Palestinian Authority under its current leadership has taken no action to meet its responsibilities under the road map. Terror has not ceased, reform of the Palestinian security services has not been undertaken, and real institutional reforms have not taken place. The State of Israel continues to pay the heavy cost of constant terror.

The Palestinians Take Over Leadership of Influential Coalition of UN Members

The Palestinians Take Over Leadership of Influential Coalition of UN Members
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday took over as chairman of the United Nations’ Group of 77 and China, a coalition of 134 developing nations which often votes in unison. He could only do so because of the UN’s complicity in treating Palestine as if it were an actual state. Several years ago, Palestine was designated a non-member observer state. Last year, it was accorded additional rights and privileges to participate in UN General Assembly matters, such as co-sponsoring proposals and amendments and making procedural motions, so that it could effectively lead the Group of 77 and China at the UN.

Trump plan for Israel-Jordan-Egypt negotiations hits brick wall

Trump plan for Israel-Jordan-Egypt negotiations hits brick wall

President Trump’s self-styled deal of the century aimed at resolving the 100 years-old Arab-Jewish conflict has now been postponed beyond February for a further unspecified period of months - signalling Jordan and Egypt are still refusing to step up and negotiate with Israel on Trump’s plan.

Jordan and Egypt—having respectively signed peace agreements with Israel in 1994 and 1979 - were the last two Arab states to occupy Judea and Samaria (West Bank), East Jerusalem and Gaza (“the disputed territories”) between 1948 and 1967.  Both are eminently qualified to replace the Palestine Liberation Organisation which has flatly refused—sight unseen—to negotiate with Israel on Trump’s proposals to resolve the allocation of sovereignty in the disputed territories.
