White House to condemn Israel in UN Security Council
The blackmail foreign policy adopted by the White House against Israel is set to continue on the world stage this week. The United States is reported to be joining the other members of the United Nations Security Council to rebuke Israel for its continuing to allow its citizens to build homes on its own land. This is a first for the American government to take such a harsh international public stance against the Israeli settlements since the previous Bush Administration pressured then Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to force abandonment of the settlements in Gaza. That move in of itself resulted in a terrorist takeover of Gaza and continued missile attacks on Israel rather than the peace expected by the experts.
The UN Security Council resolution supported by the White House states: "...the Secruity Council reiterates its previous resolutions and the obligations under the Quartet Roadmap, endorsed by its resolution 1515 (2003), expresses its strong opposition to any unilateral actions by any party, which cannot prejudge the outcome of negotiations and will not be recognized by the international community, and reaffirms that it does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity, which is a serious obstacle to the peace process." The Palestinians have been discussing stronger measures the Security Council and have reportedly backed the White House into a corner.
But the bottom line here is that this Administration has been Israeli-unfriendly from the beginning, supporting the Arab worldview. From his first major speech in Cairo, the man who occupies the Oval Office has signaled that there is a new beginning in American foreign policy that favors the Islamic world. He said, "I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles - principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings."
Since, he has been angered when Israel pushed back on concessions to the terrorists, even standing up the Prime Minister of Israel at dinner and making him leave the White House through an alley stacked with trash. He has refused to upgrade technology for Israel's defenses, and has refused certain arms sales to the ally. At the same time, he has increased military sales to the Arab world and supported the inclusion of the terrorist sponsoring Muslim Brotherhood in establishing a new government in Egypt. The handwriting is on the wall and the American leader is found wanting. Genesis 12:3 says of Israel, "I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curses thee." Think of the worsening condition of our nation.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
