As the UN screws Israel again the last laugh is on them
By: Diane Sori
Israel got the shaft again yesterday as the U(seless) N(ations)
General Assembly voted 138 to 9, with 41 nations abstaining, to grant
the 'so-called' Palestinians non-member observer state status.
"The only way to reach peace is through agreements between
the parties, not at the UN.” said Israeli ambassador to the UN, Ron
Prosor, in direct contrast to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas'
plea that this was the "last chance to save the two-state
solution" with Israel.
By saying that the Palestinians will accept no less than "the
independence of the State of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its
capital, on all the Palestinian territory occupied in 1967, to live
in peace and security alongside the State of Israel, and a solution
for the refugee issue on the basis of resolution 194," Abbas
actually "violated agreements with Israel, and Israel will act
accordingly" according to a statement issued immediately after
the vote by Prime Minister Netanyahu's office.
This statement makes it clear to all that yesterday's vote frees
Israel of its obligations under the Oslo Accords, because the vote is
a blatant violation of the underlying principle of those agreements,
meaning that both sides had agreed that all major issues would be
resolved through direct negotiations, not through unilateral
actions...as in who the hell does the U(seless) N(ations) think they
are dictating new boundaries to the sovereign state of Israel.
And while yesterday's vote is really nothing but a symbolic political move
in the Palestinian demand for statehood, it does allow the
Palestinians to now participate in debates at the UN, and to join UN
agencies and bodies like the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The most barbaric criminals of all becoming part of the
International Criminal Court...the lunacy of this is just beyond
But then again when it comes to the U(seless) N(ations) common
sense and logic goes right out the window.
And how did this vote happen...the timing says it all. If this
vote had been taken while Hamas was raining rockets down on Israel,
this cleverly calculated move by Palestinian officials of asking
countries to recognize an independent Palestinian state (with borders
following the ceasefire lines which separated Israel and the West
Bank before June 1967... including the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and
the Gaza Strip, all occupied by Israel during the 1967 Six Day War)
might never have gone their way.
Knowing these are the borders the Palestinians want, Benjamin Netanyahu
completely, totally, and rightly so has publicly rejected these
territorial lines as a basis for any negotiations because they are
'unrealistic' and 'indefensible' leaving Israel at some points only 8
miles wide...easily overrun by her enemies...so with this vote NOT
caring about Netanyahu's concerns, the countries of the world have now
shown Israel that they really must go it alone.
And Netanyahu fully realizing that Israel would face a diplomatic
defeat said that regardless of how many countries voted against
Israel, "no force in the world will get me to compromise on
Israel's security nor could any force in the world ever sever the
thousands-year-old tie between the Jewish people and the land of
Netanyahu said that the decision will "Not change anything on
the ground. It will not further the establishment of a Palestinian
state, but will make it more distant."
And I so agree as somethings are just NOT open to
discussion...like a divided Jersusalem will NEVER happen...the
U(seless) N(ations be damned.
And just so people don't forget, here is history lesson 101...there
are NO such thing as Palestinians...NO such thing at all.
The idea of a ‘Palestinian people’ with a language, culture and
nationality all their own, is something created by former PLO head
Yasser Arafat in the 1960's. This creation was embellished upon by
the surrounding Arab nations and the media after the humiliating Arab
defeat to Israel in the '67 war. Today’s so-called ‘Palestinian
people’ are just regular run of the mill Arabs who speak Arabic,
whose religion, or should I say whose cult is islam, and whose real
culture is shared by the surrounding Arab countries.
And remember, these Arabs had a homeland...it was
called Trans-Jordan back in 1948 when Israel was formed, but their
own Jordanian people didn't want them then and they still don't want
So, the bottom line is that yesterday the U(seless)
N(ations) gave observer state status to a people that don't even
exist...and we're supposed to take this organization seriously...I
don't think so.
And if it wasn't such a serious issue concerning
Israel, the U(seless) N(ations) vote would actually be
laughable...just as they are.
