UN General Assembly Legitimizes Hamas’s Evil Acts

In his remarks observing the seventieth anniversary of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, United Nations Secretary General António Guterres declared that “the Genocide Convention is preventive at its core, and punishes specific acts that are committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such. Tragically, the international community has sometimes failed to heed the warning signs and take early and decisive action.” The Secretary General proceeded to explain that “dehumanizing language is not only evil in itself. It may also sow the seeds for far more evil acts, including genocide.” Secretary General Guterres urged all of us to speak out against such evil acts. He called for “nurturing the courage and the political will to act decisively, at the right time, and to support others when they take action.”  Tragically, less than 24 hours earlier, the United Nations General Assembly had failed to take such courageous action. It failed to condemn the terrorist acts of Hamas, the Islamist Palestinian militant group whose founding charter, rhetoric and lethal attacks against innocent civilians are studies in genocidal fanaticism against Jews living in Israel. By failing to do the right thing, the UN General Assembly legitimized Hamas’s evil acts.

Trump stand shames UN rejection of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital

Trump stand shames UN rejection of Jerusalem as Israel's capitalDecember 6 marks the first anniversary of President Trump’s historic and ground-breaking announcement to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the American Embassy to Jerusalem.

President Trump’s decision flew in the face of UN Security Council Resolution 2334 on 23 December 2016 reaffirming that:

“the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace”

Christmas Under Marx and Lenin

Christmas Under Marx and Lenin
ORLANDO, FL – Between his campaign against President Gerald Ford in 1975-76 and his race against Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan delivered more than 1,000 radio broadcasts. In fact, Mr. Reagan wrote most of those three-minute broadcasts himself. In one broadcast during the Christmas season, Reagan shared a story about Christmas in the Ukraine before and after communism.

Jordan-Israel peace agenda trumps PLO-UN war agenda

Jordan-Israel peace agenda trumps PLO-UN war agenda
Jordan and Israel are becoming enmeshed in a binational agenda requiring urgent direct negotiations - which if successfully concluded - could end the 100-years old Jewish-Arab conflict.

That agenda includes:

  1. Redrawing the existing Jordan-Israel international boundary after allocating sovereignty in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) between their two respective States.
  2. Clarifying the right of Jews to enter and pray at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem - currently controlled by Jordan as Custodian of the Islamic holy sites
  3. Renewing 25 year leases of two areas leased by Jordan to Israel for agricultural use that expire next year.
  4. Increasing the amount of water currently being supplied by Israel to Jordan
  5. Progressing the feasibility of constructing the Mediterranean-Dead Sea Canal
  6. Financing the Red Sea‚ÄìDead Sea Water Conveyance -  a planned pipeline that runs from the coastal city of Aqaba to the Lisan area in the Dead Sea.

Israel-Bashing Day at the United Nations

Israel-Bashing Day at the United Nations
Beginning in 1977, the United Nations has observed the “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” every year on November 29th. This is the date in 1947 when the UN General Assembly approved its partition resolution envisaging the establishment of two states – an independent state of Palestine and an independent Jewish state of Israel. The Palestinians and their surrounding Arab neighbors rejected the original two-state solution with their usual response - violence. The creators of the Jewish state were willing to accept the compromise. Israel subsequently offered the Palestinians a succession of opportunities for their own state, which the Palestinian leadership has summarily rejected. Nevertheless, the Palestinians, with a lot of help from their friends, have managed to turn the United Nations into their propaganda arm. The highlight every year is the UN’s treatment of the November 29th anniversary of its own original two-state General Assembly resolution as, to quote former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, a “day of mourning and a day of grief.”  To assuage its grief, the UN General Assembly passes annually a series of blatantly one-sided anti-Israel resolutions, which have deliberately overlooked decades of Palestinian terrorism aimed at killing civilians.

The Israel-Europe Pipeline. The Geo-Political and Strategic Umbilical Cord.

The Israel-Europe Pipeline. The Geo-Political and Strategic Umbilical Cord.
After fairly rapid negotiations, Israel has agreed with European nations to supply Europe with its future natural gas needs. The project will turn Israel into a significant fuel-exporting nation.

Construction will begin on the longest and deepest underwater fuel pipeline in the world. 1,305 miles in length and lying 1.86 miles under the Mediterranean Sea. The $7 Billion project will take five years to complete.

Ukraine-Russia Confrontation at Sea and at the UN

Ukraine-Russia Confrontation at Sea and at the UN
The United Nations Security Council held an emergency meeting at Ukraine’s request on Monday to discuss Sunday’s maritime confrontation between vessels from Ukraine and Russia off the coast of the Russian-occupied Crimean Peninsula. The meeting followed a procedural vote rejecting Russia’s attempt to ram through its own meeting agenda as the first item of business. Russia wanted to get out in front and blunt Ukraine’s complaint of Russian aggression by portraying itself as the victim of Ukraine’s alleged invasion of Russian territorial waters.

National Socialism—Nazism—is not Nationalism—it is Socialism

NATIONAL SOCIALISM - NAZISM - IS NOT NATIONALISM. IT IS SOCIALISM!
WIKI: National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism (/ˈnɑːtsiɪzəm, ˈnæt-/), is the ideology and practices associated with the Nazi Party—officially the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP)—in Nazi Germany…

Note the words Socialist and Workers in the NAZI party’s name.

Both words throughout history described parties of the political left, of communism, socialism, and fascism, NEVER of the political right.

You will never find socialist or workers appended to the names of any party on the right or the political center.

What they had in common was, they all imposed CHANGE on their citizens with the promise of HOPE.

The HOPE never materialized. The change always did.

What followed was poverty, misery, and millions of dead.

America avoided that bullet November 8th, 2016.

Australia’s Jerusalem Embassy move sinks in sea of Islamic threats

Australia's Jerusalem Embassy move sinks in sea of Islamic threats
Forget about Australia moving its Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Indonesian threats to not sign a free trade agreement with Australia—coupled with veiled Malaysian suggestions of terrorist attacks on Australian targets if the Embassy is moved - will suffice to burst Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s thought-bubble.

Why Macron attacked Trump

Why Macron attacked Trump
French President Emmanuel Macron has apparently decided that with his approval ratings in the toilet, his best bet for a political resurgence is to attack the United States.

This isn’t a bad move, for a French president. Hatred for America has been a powerful mobilizing force in France since shortly after the American army liberated the French from Nazi German occupation in 1944.

Why Israel let Hamas win

Why Israel let Hamas win
Israel’s security cabinet’s decision Tuesday afternoon to walk away from the war Hamas initiated Monday and to accept a “ceasefire” is frustrating and infuriating. Hamas shot nearly 500 projectiles into Israel in under 24 hours. It blew up a bus with a Kornet anti-tank missile. Sixty Israelis were wounded, several critically. One civilian was killed. Numerous homes were destroyed.

Israel has never experienced any rocket onslaught from Gaza remotely as intense as what Hamas and Islamic Jihad shot off on Monday and Tuesday. And yet, rather than respond with equal – or better yet – far greater force and teach Hamas and Islamic Jihad a lesson they would long remember, the security cabinet sufficed with a couple hundred pinpoint air attacks, and then accepted the IDF’s advice and opted for the ceasefire. In so doing, they left the residents of southern Israel virtual hostages of Hamas and Islamic Jihad who have retained the capacity to attack them at will.

A Corbyn Government in Britain will be a major existential threat to Israel

A Corbyn Government in Britain will be a major existential threat to Israel
Revelations expose Labour Party members at all levels holding deeply felt and widespread anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist tendencies.  The outing of this anti-Semitism has come about to a large extent by the actions and utterances of their leaders. The rank and file feel emboldened to express themselves by calling Israel a “racist endeavor”  and anyone who supports the Zionist state as being complicit with an illegitimate regime.

UN Refugee Agency Tries to Step on U.S. National Sovereignty

UN Refugee Agency Tries to Step on U.S. National Sovereignty
Members of the first of several Central American migrant “caravans” have already arrived at the U.S. border with Mexico. Some of the migrants scaled or crawled through barrier fences, attempting to move onto U.S. soil illegally. So far, Border Patrol agents have been dealing with the situation, but they may have more difficulty as more migrants arrive en masse and try to enter the United States illegally. It was to deter such entry that President Trump issued a proclamation that would deny political asylum to migrants crossing illegally into the country. They are required to enter only at the official ports of entry and wait patiently to be processed for possible asylum hearings.

Will President Trump say “West Bank” or “Judea and Samaria”?

Will President Trump say West Bank. or Judea and Samaria
President Trump - having rejected a barrage of criticism since describing himself as a “nationalist” - faces a further torrent of invective should he choose to say “Judea and Samaria” rather than “West Bank” in his soon to-be-released peace proposals.

Arab propaganda has used “West Bank” since 1949 to obliterate any Jewish connection to one of the two remaining pieces of land under the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine where sovereignty still remains undetermined between Jews and Arabs.
