    Obama Administration Votes Not Present At UN Palestinian State Declaration Hearing

    Obama Administration Votes Not Present At UN Palestinian State Declaration Hearing

    While Obama has announced his opposition to a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state, the administration’s efforts to convince other countries to follow suit have been underwhelming at best.

    Lost in the chaos of budget negotiations, downgrades, war tragedies and stock market crashlets was the news that U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice didn’t bother to show up to the final open UNSC debate before the vote on unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood.  Rice, who may have been responsible for then-candidate’s Kerry’s suggestion that Mideast policy be put in the reliably anti-Israel hands of Jimmy “Hangin’ with Hamas” Carter and James “F*** the Jews” Baker, passed up the opportunity to forcefully advocate against this deeply irresponsible course of action that will heighten the conflict and decrease prospects for actual peace.

    Imposing a “solution” from the outside will do nothing to bring peace between the sides.  It brings no reconciliation.   It will, however,  intensify the conflict over the areas controlled and inhabited by Israel that the United Nations suddenly decrees to be part of the newly-minted nation of Palestine. This “solution” is a lashing out by those who want to seize territory from Israel, a harbinger of strife, not of peace.

    Bruised as we may be, America remains the world’s lone superpower, and despite Obama’s retreat from America’s noble traditions (in this and so many other ways), among the few powers of any significance friendly to Israel.  America should be leading on this issue.  I guess the administration was leading from behind.  The door. And maybe a few hundred miles of real estate.

    Fun with numbers!!

    Google search result for “united nations resolutions against israel” turns up ….. 17,700 results.

    Google search result for “united nations resolutions against syria” turns up ….. one result.

    Bibi must be gunning down people in the streets.

    LukeHandCool (who wonders … could these be called “disproportionate” results?)

    Genesis 12:2 applies in this situation.

    And, more importantly, Genesis 12:3.

      That is correct, does anyone wonder why nothing Obama does has worked in a positive way? It is because of his stance against Israel. He gets very bad advice from Samantha Power. But we, Americans have the power to pray and counteract this president’negative position on Israel. We also have the power to elect the candidate who has consistently blessed Israel, Rick Perry.
      “…Gov. Perry Receives Defender of Jerusalem Award
      Thursday, August 13, 2009 • Press Release

      Pledging To Work Toward A Stronger Future JERUSALEM – Gov. Rick Perry has received the Defender of Jerusalem Award, which is given to public figures who have demonstrated support and commitment to the state of Israel and its capitol, Jerusalem. The governor accepted the award while on his trip to Israel, where he also met with Israeli President Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and business and academic leaders.

      “I have long supported the right of a Jewish state to exist in the Middle East and firmly believe in the protection and preservation of democratic states in that part of the world,” Gov. Perry said. “After visiting several sacred and historic sites, meeting with business, civic and government leaders and seeing the day-to-day lives of the people on my trips to Israel, I am even more convinced that a safe, secure Israel is an essential part of stability in this part of the world.”
      Gov. Perry continues to be a staunch supporter of Israel. After a trip to the area in 2007, the governor supported Texas’ divestment from companies that do business with Iran, a main opponent of Israeli freedom. Additionally, as a result of meetings with Israeli leadership during the governor and first lady’s visit to Israel in 2007, the Texas-Israel Chamber of Commerce was created to help launch future commercial interests and solidify the strong business and cultural connections between the two states.

      Texas is Israel’s fourth largest American trading partner. Texas and Israel’s commercial relationship began with agriculture and natural resources, and has grown in recent years to include a variety of major business sectors, including information and communication technologies, aerospace and defense, medical technologies, homeland security initiatives and renewable energies….”

      Governor Perry was on TBN and related what President Bush said to him in Bush’s fifth year as President “Governor of Texas is the best job.” There is no animosity between the Bushes and Perry, really, all three are God-fearing Methodists. America’s future will be safe with Rick Perry because he has blessed and will continue to bless Israel.

    It is written, literally, into the Islamic gene set that Muslims are compelled, by allah himself, to fight the Jews, the People of the Book (Christians), and all other non-Islamic believers until the final days.

    Sura 9:5, When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters [non-Muslims] wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful.

    Sura 9:29, Fight those who believe not in God and the Last Day and do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden–such men as practice not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book–until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled.”

    Sura 9:41, Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.

    Muslims believe these things, and act accordingly. In fact they expressly state time and again that they are motivated by allah’s instructions. Since Muslims believe that the koran is the literal, immutable word of their god, and therefore cannot be altered in any measure, to believe that peace will come to the Mid-East is simple foolishness.

    Nothing is what the Obamites do best. Everything else comes at too high a price. I say let them continue to do nothing and just compliment them on their successful nothingness.
