Outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama has devoted a chunk of his remaining time and attention in office to indulge in a spiteful, personal demonstration of his hatred for Israel. It’s the final attack of the most anti-Israel administration in U.S. history. And it isn’t finished yet.
A reluctant Egypt had been prepared to present an incredibly biased anti-Israel UN Security Council resolution, a bigoted text that had been in the works for some time. But Egyptian President Asissi, after a conversations with president-elect Donald Trump and Israeli prime Minister Netanyahu pulled the resolution indefinitely. As various diplomatic sources reported, Al Sissi decided that antagonizing the incoming president and straining his security arrangements with Israel weren’t worth a UN resolution he didn’t want to present anyway.
President Obama had been colluding on this all along with the Palestinians, even advising on wording. He contacted the anti-Israel countries of New Zealand, Venezuela, and the Muslim nations of Senegal and Malaysia to quickly co-sponsor the resolution and get in on the floor quickly for a vote. It passed 14-0, with the U.S. abstaining as planned.
In spite of the outright lies being told by the administrations lackeys, Resolution 2334 represents a major change in U.S. policy.
It demonizes Israel, yet again, as the ‘occupying power’ in disregard of all historical and legal norms. It refers to Judea, Samaria (AKA the West Bank) as well as east Jerusalem as ‘occupied Palestinian territory,’ a neat trick since there never was a Palestine and the 1994 peace treaty between Jordan and Israel didn’t even mention a Palestinian state.
It calls for Jerusalem, with the Old City, which contains all the Jewish holy sites including the Western Wall to be ceded to ‘Palestine.’ That means those sites will be desecrated as they were during the nineteen year Jordanian occupation, and will be closed to Jews forever. Yes, it is now the official position of the United States of America that the Western Wall and the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem, inhabited by Jews for thousands of years except for a 19-year hiatus between 1948-1967 when the Jews were ethnically cleansed from the area is now ‘occupied Palestinian territory’. This delegitimizes Israel and the Jewish people and concurs with the anti-semitic UNESCO resolution of October,2016 that nullified all Jewish and Christian ties and connections to Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and referred to all of the Holy sites there by their Muslim names. Obama saw to it that United States voted against that UNESCO resolution, but there was an election going on then. That’s obviously why the Obama administration vetoed a similar resolution to 2334 in 2011 before his re-election run, but didn’t veto 2334. There’s no election going on now, and Barack Hussein Obama’s situation has obviously changed. Now he can take off the mask without any cost or consequences.
This new diktat creates the boundaries for ‘Palestine’ giving them all of Judea and Samaria as well as East Jerusalem. In other words, it legitimizes the creation of 580,000 Jewish refugees as well as totally unsafe borders for Israel. It also violates the Oslo Accords and the Road Map, agreements the U.S. was a signatory to that stated unequivocally that any settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority could only be achieved through direct negations between the two parties. And for the first time, it legitimizes Obama’s call for imposing a Palestinian state on the 1948 ceasefire lines, another total departure from previous U.S. policy.
