Jimmy Carter Urges Barack Obama To Divide Israel/Jerusalem At The UN Before January 20, Article: Jimmy Carter's Anti-Semitism

Jimmy Carter Urges Barack Obama To Divide The Land Of Israel At The United Nations Before January 20th

In an absolutely stunning editorial for the New York Times, former president Jimmy Carter has publicly called for Barack Obama to divide the land of Israel at the United Nations before Inauguration Day. While he was president, Carter negotiated peace between Israel and Egypt, and ever since that time he has been a very strong advocate for a Palestinian state. Carter is completely convinced that a “two-state solution” will bring lasting peace to the Middle East, but now that Donald Trump has been elected Carter knows that his dream of seeing a Palestinian state while he is still alive is rapidly slipping away. In a desperate attempt to salvage the situation, Carter is urging Barack Obama to take bold action while he still has the power to do so.
In his New York Times editorial, one of the steps that Carter says that Obama should take is to give formal U.S. diplomatic recognition to a Palestinian state…

I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short. The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership.

 He urged Obama to support a UN Security Council resolution that would set forth firm parameters for resolving the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians…

The Security Council should pass a resolution laying out the parameters for resolving the conflict. It should reaffirm the illegality of all Israeli settlements beyond the 1967 borders, while leaving open the possibility that the parties could negotiate modifications. Security guarantees for both Israel and Palestine are imperative, and the resolution must acknowledge the right of both the states of Israel and Palestine to live in peace and security. Further measures should include the demilitarization of the Palestinian state, and a possible peacekeeping force under the auspices of the United Nations.

In a previous article, I discussed what the three main pillars of such a resolution would probably look like…

1. It would give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state for the very first time.
2. It would grant East Jerusalem to the Palestinians as the capital of their new state.
3. It would establish the 1967 ceasefire lines as the basis for final negotiations for borders between the two states.
Such a UN Security Council resolution would be considered legally binding on the Israelis and the Palestinians. And the Trump administration would not be able to undo such a resolution because it would take another vote of the UN Security Council to revoke the resolution once it had been passed and that would not happen.

Right now the rest of the UN Security Council is ready to support this kind of resolution. The only thing that has been standing in the way has been the U.S. Security Council veto power, and there have already been rumblingsthat Obama may not exercise that veto power if a “parameters resolution” is put up for a vote before he leaves office.
And if Obama was going to make such a move, a really good way to drum up some public support for it would be to have a highly respected former president publish an editorial supporting the move in a highly visible newspaper such as the New York Times.
Over in Israel, the government has been ignoring Carter’s anti-Israel rants for years, and they have also responded to this latest editorial by Carter with silence
As Carter’s criticism of Israel over the years has become increasingly scathing and one-sided, Jerusalem’s policy has been to largely ignore him. In line with this approach, neither the Prime Minister’s Office nor the Foreign Ministry had any response on Tuesday to his op-ed.

But without a doubt the Israelis are very concerned about what may happen next. They know the kind of damage that Barack Obama could do before we get to January 20th, and they are desperately hoping that Obama does not decide to do something exceedingly foolish. The following comes from the Jerusalem Post

A number of European governments, as well as various think tanks, are talking with Obama administration officials, urging them to take some kind of action on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the waning days of the current presidency.
Among the suggestions are a new UN resolution laying down parameters for a peace deal; US support for the recognition of “Palestine” in the UN; or – at the very least – backing or abstaining on an anti-settlement resolution in the Security Council.
Israeli officials consistently maintain that they do not know what – if anything – Obama has planned. However, the fact that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continuously says – as he did on Sunday – that he expects Obama not to divert from traditional US policy on the matter, is an indication that there remains concern over the matter in Jerusalem.

From a Bible prophecy perspective, the division of the land of Israel is the number one event that we are watching for right now, and this is one of the reasons why I have labeled the period of time leading up to January 20th as “the danger zone."
There have been many that have warned that once we divide the land of Israel, our land will be divided as well. But in addition to the great earthquake that is coming to the center of our country, we also know that so many of the other major judgments that I warn about in The Rapture Verdict come after the land of Israel gets divided.
But even though the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have both been running stories about a potential UN Security Council resolution that would divide the land of Israel, and even though experienced politicians such as Jimmy Carter and John Bolton are making lots of noise about it, most people don’t seem to understand how immensely important this really is in the greater scheme of things.
But if Barack Obama does decide to make a move to divide the land of Israel at the United Nations at some point during the next several weeks, the consequences for this nation will be more severe than most people would dare to imagine.

Articles: Jimmy Carter's Anti-Semitism

It appears former president Jimmy Carter, now 92 years old, has yet to meet a tyrant he doesn’t admire.
His continuing embrace of terrorist regimes makes some wonder when we will see the cessation of his continual self-exhumations from political burial in order to once again resume his prophetic declamations on behalf of odious regimes, past and present. Carter’s latest declamation on the demise of the pitiless tyrant Fidel Castro reveals once again his lifelong empathy for totalitarian regimes:

“Rosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro. We remember fondly our visits with him in Cuba and his love of his country. We wish the Cuban citizens peace and prosperity in the years ahead.”

Just as bad, if not worse, Carter wants Obama to recognize a Palestinian state before Barack Obama leaves office. His love for brutal despotism does not end with his affection for Castro, but extends to leaders who wish to exterminate Israel and the Jews.

“Carter has now stepped into the debate with an op-ed for the New York Times on Monday.
‘It has been President Obama’s aim to support a negotiated end to the conflict based on two states, living side by side in peace. That prospect is now in grave doubt,’ he [Carter] wrote. ‘I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short.
‘The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on January 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine as 137 nations have done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership.’

The fact of the matter is this: there has never been a Palestinian leader, including Mahmoud Abbas, who has not denied Israel’s right to exist; and who has not wanted to eliminate Israel the nation from the map. Education follows policy. It is well known that Harper Collins publishes textbooks with illustrations of the Middle East completely erase Israel from the map.

In view of the constant antipathy toward Israel by the Palestinians and Hamas; and given his supposedly peace-loving nature, how did Carter arrive at his anti-Semitism?

For one thing, Carter is a believer in replacement theology; that is, that the Christian church replaces Israel and that Israel no longer holds a special place in covenant theology. Israel is just another nation and people. This false doctrine has been the basis of deleterious and sometimes fatal foreign policy involving Jews and Israel. Carter’s realpolitik favors current demographics and the global order embraced by the U.N., which partly explains his appeal to President Obama to recognize Palestine. Carter’s globalist vision and belief in supra-national entities as the way for the future replace the Christian vision of the kingdom of God.

Replacement theology has dangerous, even fatal implications for Israel and the Jews. Certainly, replacement theology has contributed to anti-Semitism, including Carter’s implacable hatred of Israel.

Many Christians, particularly American evangelicals and members of the Reformed denominations in the U.S., reject replacement theology entirely, believing in the inseparable link between Judaism and Christianity; and believing in the unity of the Old and New Testaments. Evangelicals and those of the Reformed faith hold with St. Paul, who as a Jew believing in Christ as the long-promised Messiah, taught that the Jews still had a covenantal bond with God; and that Christianity, far from being an entirely new sect, owed its genesis to Judaism. Christians, Paul, and other apostles wrote, regard Christ as the fulfillment of all that went before and as the promise of the future. They were and are merely grafted into the older vine that was Judaism.
The above is why so many evangelicals and those of the Reformed faith support Israel and her right to exist and flourish as a nation. They will not sever their spiritual roots. Nor will they embrace a secular globalist vision at the expense of Israel and the Jews.
Let us hope and pray the incoming Trump administration strengthens America's alliance with Israel, repudiating Carter’s and the Left’s onus toward her; and may it also cherish and reinforce the priceless heritage Western civilization has in both Judaism and Christianity.

This gets crazier everyday! Here is someone whom the MSM calls a racist, bigot and unfit to be President; yet he is fully supportive of Israel; and has pledged to move our embassy to Jerusalem, and recognize it as its Capital. Then we have this so called "born again christian" who teaches Sunday School yet wants to divide Isael and Jerusalem. I wonder if he ever reads his Bible {Gen. 12:1-3 and Zach. 12-3} and realizes what will happen to those who try to divide the nation. Jesus called them "wolves in sheep's clothing". Then the MSM wonders why we don't take them seriously anymore. Oh well, another normal day in the land of lunacy!

In my humble opinion if you are a true liberal/democrat, THAT becomes your #1 "religion" before everything else. Just something ive noticed over the years
