Israel is bracing for more hostile declarations from a bloc of more than 70 nations meeting Sunday in Paris with the goal of embracing a document that calls for a two-state solution with a Palestinian state formed within the 1949 boundaries.
The United Nations Security Council passed a resolution Dec. 23 calling all of east Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria “occupied Palestinian land.” Five days later, Secretary of State John Kerry declared that construction in Judea and Samaria stands as one of the main obstacles to peace and said Israel could either be Jewish or Democratic, not both.
The Palestinians, emboldened by the U.N. action and Kerry’s comments, wasted no time reacting. A Palestinian drove his truck into a group of Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem last Sunday, killing four and wounding 15.
The Palestinian Authority responded by giving a monthly stipend to the widow of the terrorist truck driver.
There is language in the document that pays lip service to the concept of a solution “not being imposed” on the parties, “yet that is precisely what U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, the Paris Peace Summit ‘Agreement,’ and the upcoming UNSC Resolution seek to do,” according to a report by the Jewish Press.
Michele Bachmann, the former GOP congresswoman from Minnesota and strong supporter of Israel, said the global body’s momentum against Israel has been shifted into overdrive by the administration of President Obama.
“Despite significant U.S. military and diplomatic weakening under Obama’s leadership, the U.S. remains the world’s leading global nation state,” Bachmann told WND. “Tragically, Obama unmistakably sent the message that the problems of the world are Israel’s fault.”
Paul McGuire, who taught courses on Israel and Bible prophecy for many years at Kings College and Seminary and has written several books on the topic, said the global elites who run the United Nations hate Israel and the United States. They see these two countries as the primary obstacles to the global governance and control that the United Nations has always coveted.
“The goal of the Palestinians from day one going back to Yasser Arafat, has been to literally drive the Jews into the sea and wipe them out,” he said. “And so Israel as a defensive measure took that land in 1967, and now you have Obama pressuring the nations, and it’s looking like a slam dunk to create the two-state solution, which represents the globalist position and it will lead to unprecedented slaughter, it will be a nightmare.”
“And the other thing is this is really the game plan for the New World Order and the globalist elites, of whom Kerry is a part, and they don’t give a damn about bible prophecy,” he said. “It exposes what the globalists and the U.N. are all about. They enact policies that are counter to the word of God in order to curse God.”
