136 Nations Recognize A Palestinian State – Only Obama Stands In The Way Of Full Global Recognition

Countries That Officially Recognize A Palestinian State - Photo by Night wWill a UN Security Council resolution formally recognizing the establishment of a Palestinian state be passed by the end of 2015?  Now that the Vatican has formally recognized a Palestinian state, there is a tremendous amount of international momentum for precisely such a UN Security Council resolution.  In fact, France plans to push really hard for one by the end of this year.  At this point, the only thing that could derail those plans is Barack Obama.  For years, the threat of a Security Council veto has been the one thing stopping a resolution from moving forward.  But now that Benjamin Netanyahu has been re-elected and has put together a cabinet that does not seem inclined to negotiate with the Palestinians, the Obama administration is pledging to “reevaluate our approach” and says that it will not “prejudge” what it will do if a vote comes up at the United Nations.  And as you will see below, one news source is now reporting that behind the scenes Barack Obama has already given the “green light” for France to go ahead with a resolution on a Palestinian state at the UN.  If this is truly what Obama plans to do, it will absolutely shatter U.S. relations with Israel and plunge the entire Middle East into chaos.


Most Americans don’t realize this, but 136 countries already formally recognize a Palestinian state.  Those 136 nations have a combined population of more than 5.5 billion people.

As of this moment, the major holdouts are the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe.  But most of the European nations have already indicated that they are ready to recognize a Palestinian state if the United States will.  In fact, as I mentioned above, France plans to lead the push for a Palestinian state at the UN Security Council.

The “State of Palestine” already has “non-member observer” status at the UN, but obviously they are not satisfied with that.  They have been very eager for formal recognition by the UN, and now that the Vatican has given them formal recognition that has really bolstered their cause.  The following is from a CNN article about the Vatican announcement that stunned the world on Wednesday…

The Vatican announced Wednesday that it had brokered a treaty with the “state of Palestine,” upsetting Israeli advocates and propelling Pope Francis into the heart of yet another geopolitical fray.

The treaty is expected to be signed “in the near future,” the Vatican said. Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, is scheduled to visit Pope Francis on Saturday, the day before the church canonizes two Palestinian nuns.

The treaty is thought to mark the first time the Holy See has formally recognized Palestinian statehood in a legal document.

Of course this didn’t come out of a vacuum.  The truth is that the Vatican has been moving in this direction for quite some time.  Just consider what the Washington Post had to say about the matter…

The move should not be too great a surprise. Since the U.N. General Assembly voted to recognize Palestine as a “non-member observer state” in 2012, the Vatican has referred to the “state of Palestine” in its communiques. When Pope Francis visited the Holy Land last year, the official Vatican program referred to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as the leader of the “state of Palestine.” And the pontiff publicly referred to the “state of Palestine” at a speech in the West Bank.

Now that the Vatican has done this, international pressure on Obama to support a UN Security Council resolution on a Palestinian state is increasing.

When the UN Security Council resolution being drafted by France comes up for a vote later this year, what will Obama do?

Well, according to Debka, Obama has already given the “green light” for France to move forward…

US President Barack Obama did not wait for Binyamin Netanyahu to finish building his new government coalition by its deadline at midnight Wednesday, May 6, before going into action to pay him back for forming a right-wing cabinet minus any moderate figure for resuming negotiations with the Palestinians.

Banking on Netanyahu’s assertion while campaigning for re-election that there would be no Palestinian state during his term in office, Obama is reported exclusively by our sources to have given the hitherto withheld green light to European governments to file a UN Security Council motion proclaiming an independent Palestinian state.

Not only that, Debka is also reporting that members of the Obama administration have actually traveled to France to help draft the resolution…

To show the administration was in earnest, senior US officials sat down with their French counterparts in Paris last week to sketch out the general outline of this motion. According to our sources, they began addressing such questions as the area of the Palestinian state, its borders, security arrangements between Israel and the Palestinians and whether or not to set a hard-and-fast timeline for implementation, or phrase the resolution as  a general declaration of intent.

Incorporating a target date in the language would expose Israel to Security Council sanctions for non-compliance.

If what Debka is reporting is accurate, this represents a massive betrayal of Israel by the Obama administration.

However, the Jerusalem Post is reporting just the opposite.  They are reporting that Obama plans to veto the French resolution…

US President Barack Obama has told associates that he intends to veto the French proposal for a UN Security Council resolution mandating the creation of a Palestinian state and an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank within two years, Channel 10 is reporting on Friday.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said this past March that Paris planned to start discussions with partners in the “coming weeks” on a United Nations Security Council resolution to lay out the parameters for ending the Middle East conflict.

“I hope that the partners who were reluctant will not be reluctant anymore,” said Fabius, referring to the United States, which has traditionally shielded its ally Israel from any action at the United Nations.

So what is the truth?

Only time will tell.

But what we do know is that Obama was absolutely furious when Netanyahu promised during his most recent campaign that there would not be a Palestinian state as long as he was in office.

And we do know that the Obama administration has pledged to “reevaluate our approach” and has said that it will not “prejudge what we would do if there was a U.N. action”

The U.S. would “reevaluate our approach” based on Netanyahu’s “change in his position,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters as the president flew to Cleveland to deliver a speech on economic policy.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki raised the possibility that the reevaluation could include a shift in position at the U.N. She avoided the usual U.S. language about vetoing Security Council resolutions that Israel opposes.

“The prime minister’s recent statements call into question his commitment to a two-state solution,” Psaki told reporters. “We’re not going to prejudge what we would do if there was a U.N. action.”

In the final analysis it is so hard to tell exactly what Obama will do, because as he has shown over and over again, lying comes as naturally to him as breathing does.

However, I think that we can get some clues about how obsessed Obama is with the establishment of a Palestinian state from public statements that he has made throughout his presidency.  The following quotes from Barack Obama regarding the need for a Palestinian state come from one of my previous articles

#1 “Negotiations will be necessary, but there’s little secret about where they must lead: two states for two peoples”

#2 “And I think everybody understands the outlines of what a peace deal would look like, involving a territorial compromise on both sides based on ‘67 lines with mutually agreed upon swaps, that would ensure that Israel was secure but would also ensure that the Palestinians have a sovereign state in which they can achieve the aspirations that they’ve held for so long.”

#3 “The only way for Israel to endure and thrive as a Jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable Palestine”

#4 “Neither occupation nor expulsion is the answer. Just as Israelis built a state in their homeland, Palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land.”

#5 “Let me be clear: The United States strongly supports the goal of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security. That is a goal shared by Palestinians, Israelis, and people of goodwill around the world. That is a goal that the parties agreed to in the road map and at Annapolis. That is a goal that I will actively pursue as President of the United States.”

#6 “…we continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the long-term security of Israel, if it wants to stay both a Jewish state and democratic”

#7 “It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own, and lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements of her parents every single day.”

#8 “None of us are under any illusion that this would be easy.  As I said in my speech this morning, it has already entailed significant political risk by President Abbas, as well as Prime Minister Netanyahu.  But I think the reason that they’ve been willing to take those risks is they realize this is the best way, the only way, for us to achieve what should be our goal:  two states living side-by-side in peace and security.  It’s right for Palestinian children.  It’s right for Israeli children.”

#9 “Just as the Israeli people have the right to live in the historic homeland of the Jewish people, the Palestinian people deserve the right to self-determination. Palestinian children have hopes and dreams for their future and deserve to live with the dignity that can only come with a state of their own.”

#10 “The only solution is a democratic, Jewish state living side-by-side in peace and security with a viable, independent Palestinian state.”

In the end, I believe that Barack Obama is going to choose to betray Israel at the United Nations, and it will have very serious ramifications that will literally be felt all over the planet.

So what do you think?  Please feel free to participate in the discussion by posting a comment below…

    Obama could be setting up the stage and pave the way for the Anti-Christ. The Anti-Christ would confirm the covenant with many (include Israel ad Palestine) (Daniel 9:27)

    • iris

      I agree, and not surprised, this has been the RCC’s stance for 1700 years, and the Reformers grew up in that same bigoted culture. No thanks to Greek re-interpretation of Scripture, anti-Semitism has been thriving in Christ’s name since around 200 A.D. No wonder Jews mistrust Christians. May the LORD continue to protect Israel. He’s going to have a lot to say to all those who have divided His land and vilified His people when He returns and reigns from Jerusalem.

    • That covenant you reference was fulfilled by Christ in the midst of the final week. The night before His crucifixion, he even referenced the words, a “covenant with many.” The seventy weeks were fulfilled. Daniel 9 is all about the Christ, not an anti-christ.

  • Chris Webb

    “it will absolutely shatter U.S. relations with Israel and plunge the entire Middle East into chaos.” Lol, as if the middle east already isn’t in total chaos, no thanks to the US.

    • S.M.

      Right. And what is wrong with having two states living side by side each other. The author is so pro-Israel that he is blinded by his ignorance. He does not mention the things Israelis have done to U.S. such as the attack on the USS Liberty, Pollack’s betrayal of state secrets, and 9/11. He does not mention how Palestinians are treated by Israelis yet says they are to blame. The Palestinians are being treated like the way the South African whites treated the blacks or how the Nazis treated the Jews. Gaza has become a an actual prison with deteriorating conditions. There are those who say piddly rockets that Hamas and others fires are such a threat that they warrant a big response from Israel. The killings of innocent men, women, and children is inexcusable for both sides, but Israel is unjustified in its aggressive military assaults among other things.

      • ObamaRican

        And Israel has an arsenal the Palestinians can’t match thanks to the US military industrial complex and our tax dollars. Don’t be fooled and follow the money.

        Wow, I just lost a few brain cells reading this comment. You take conspiracy theory to a fantastically idiotic level. Not even going to argue with someone that insane. Wow, just wow.

  • Patrick

    What Israel is doing to the Palestinians is wrong. God does not condone injustice in any way, shape of form. Even in the Old Testament, God rebukes Israel for her sins…Israel needs to be rebuked today, too, for their injustice on Palestinian Christians and Muslims.

    • jsmith

      Slowly people are waking up to the injustices done to the Palestinian people by the chosen one’s. The abuses are so fricking obvious, that one would have to be a moron not to see what’s happening now. And we American’s are next on the list.

      • Mike

        So when transplants from enemy nations move into your neighborhood and team up with terrorists hell bent your destruction and start lobbing bombs into your neighborhood, are you going to talk about the abuses you heaped on them and that you deserve it. The Palestinians would be able to live peaceable with Israel if their goal wasn’t the Jewish people’s destruction. There’s a historical pattern here that is very fricken obvious. One might even say that you would have to be a moron to miss it.

        • Jordan

          Look at a map of how much land has been taken by Israel since 1948 and you tell me who doesn’t want a two state solution. The answer is obvious. I get tired of Israel always playing the victim when they are the relentless aggressor!

          • boldly

            Do your research before you cast stones. There is a big picture here that speak volumes.

          • iris

            Also learn some modern history, please, Jordan, because the truth is exactly the opposite. Every war since 1948 has been started by one or more Arab nations and under the rules of international warfare, since Israel won them, they are entitled to keep the land, precisely because the the other guys started it. Those guys don’t understand compromise, either, because every act of appeasement (giving up land they rightfully won, as a show of peace) has been interpreted as fear and weakness on Israel’s part, and has only spurred them on to more aggression towards Israel.

          • adam

            Really relentless aggressor. That’s why they have a missile defense system to ward off incoming rockets and have proposed every single peace offering that has been negotiated.

        • ObamaRican

          What’s really concerning is that assholes like you exist.

    • DaveL

      So, you are saying it was wise for the Palestinians to elect a terrorist organization (Hamas) to run their government? Like the PA, itself, this is an organization that has never made it to square one in the peace process by acknowledging Israel’s right to exist. There could have been a Palestinian state from day #1, way back in 1948 when the UN authorized it, but because it hated Israel more than it wanted its own state, it chose war instead. And for nearly 70 years it has not changed. And it hates the United States as much as it hates Israel. Who can forget the day after 9/11. While the Israelis mourned with us, the Palestinians were dancing in the streets. Today they have a very deceptive campaign to influence our college campuses into supporting the idea of a Palestinian state, but the truth is, they will never be satisfied until Israel is destroyed.

      • ObamaRican

        Actually, that’s what you’re saying, asshole.

        • DaveL

          That’s the best rebuttal you’ve got? You prove my point, ignoramus!

      • william mony

        These pro Palestinian people embrace their own destruction.
        If the USA forces Israel to give up land, then the USA will have done to it what was done to Israel.
        People think the California drought, 40 million dead chickens, racial uprisings, and weather problems will be a laugh in comparison to the blowing of Yellowstone, New Madrid earthquake and an east coast Tsunami.

    • Jordan

      Its good to see someone with some logic on this issue. Few talk about the unGodly destruction of Palestine by Israel and many Jews don’t even agree with their own government.

      • adam

        Palestine was a British entity after the Ottoman Empire. It had nothing to do with what you are referring to. Read up on your history before making idiotic generalizations. Oh, and by the way, what destruction are you referring to, Israel is a high tech first world country.

  • Patrick

    Please, ladies and gentlemen, do not blindly follow Israel…they are oppressing Palestinian CHRISTIANS. Is it OK for Israel to hurt Christians? Does God condone theft, oppression and intimidation by Israel just because it is Israel? Didn’t God rebuke Israel for their sins in the OT? Do you think God feels any different today?

    Please Google: Rabbi Weiss and watch some videos of his on this subject. Thanks!

    • krinks

      Nonsense. Israel is the one place in the Middle East bar none where Christians, Jews, Muslims, and now homosexuals (the most gay friendly city on Earth bar none is Tel Aviv) can live and worship as they see fit.

      Have you been there? I have a few times which is how I know you are repeating anti-Semitic propaganda.

      • jsmith

        Ah, there it is, the anti-semite card that is always pulled out to justify tribal propaganda.

    • adam

      You don’t Mr. Weiss is a self hating person right? He doesn’t qualify as Jewish let alone a rabbi so don’t use an extremist non-believer in a logical argument it show lack of intelligence.

  • folgers22

    2 questions.
    1. What does this have to do with the End of the American Dream? My American Dream has nothing to do with Israel.
    2. Who cares? Refer to #1. Why does it matter to me or you what happens in a foreign country that we have no real interest in? Until Israel is selling us Rare Earth Minerals or oil or whatnot, who cares where their borders are or who or what is inside of them? Not our problem. As a sovereign foreign power, let them figure it out on their own.
    Isn’t anyone else tired of the constant drumbeat about Israel and the Palestinians? All my life, this has been an issue. It’s been on the news every night, in the paper every morning, and on every president’s foreign policy promise list. And nothing ever changes. Just let it go, people. The issues there have been around for a lot longer than the USA-you and I won’t change it, solve it, or even have an effect on it. Leave it alone and focus on our own country where we have pressing issues of our own to deal with.

    • Bitsey

      There’s verse in the Bible that states those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed. If our government votes for a Palestinian state, which would divide Israel, then we would be heaping a curse upon ourselves. I have no interest in making enemies with The Lord. The land belongs to Israel.

      • folgers22

        That’s your interpretation, but I’m not sure how supporting a Palestinian state equals cursing Israel.
        -Also, didn’t Israel allow the creation of the Palestinian Authority? That’s de facto recognition of Palestine as a state, so did they curse themselves? How does that one work?
        -Also, failing to promote Israel’s political interests does not necessarily equal cursing Israel. That’s a convenient way to load the argument; arguing that opposing views are evil based on a quote from a book that not everyone (including the Israelis, themselves) believes in.
        -Does blindly supporting Israel automatically bring God’s blessings?
        -If Israel is God’s land, why does he need you, a very mere mortal who doesn’t even live there, to defend it?
        If the land belongs to Israel, why did God allow those other people to settle on it in the first place? Seems like He sort of slacked off there for a while.

        • krinks

          “That’s your interpretation” – so sayeth the liar. One who lies in God’s name always start with these three words.

          • Gay Veteran

            and yet you did not rebut any of his specific points.
            just easier calling someone a liar

          • krinks

            As soon as I see the words “that is your interpretation” I don’t have to.

          • Gay Veteran

            in other words, folgers22 nailed you good

          • folgers22

            And yet, if you want to understand the bible, you must deal with interpretation of what it said. Unless you can read the original language, you’re going to have to pick from dozens of competing interpretations and commentaries.
            Are they all invalid?

          • krinks


          • boldly

            Let it go 22, only a discussion !!

          • folgers22

            No, it’s your interpretation.
            Ad Hominem attacks on me do not prove your point. Since you want to throw out pop cultural biblical references, here’s what you’re quoting: Gen 12:3. As Wesley, explained above, that’s a promise to Abraham, not to the sovereign nation of Israel.

            So can you address my points above? Because as far as I can tell, there is no reason for Americans to be obsessed by events in Israel and you are not courting eternal damnation if you are more concerned with events in your own nation. If Israel really IS that important, why are you here in America reading about the End of the AMERICAN Dream?

          • krinks

            There is such a thing as Biblical Truth and those that try to circumvent this always start out with “that is your interpretation”. That is a fact.

          • NoCoincidences

            You haven’t researched anything, as if you could be bothered by a little effort. Instead, floger, you must cite others’ statements by your own admission, “As Wesley, explained above….”. That is the most cowardly and illegitimate logic all fools use when they are called on it, they blame those from whom they plagiarize. Conveniently typical..

      • Gay Veteran

        “…The land belongs to Israel.”

        that’s right, they stole it fair and square

        • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

          Jews have lived in that area for many centuries; their numbers ebbed and flowed due to hardships and immigration. They were granted that small sliver of land when the victors of WWI carved up the Middle East for themselves. Prior to that, Jews and Jewish groups purchased land that through their labor was made into profitable farmland (much of it was malaria-infested swampland). That in turn encouraged more Arab immigration to the area. The relationship between the Arabs and Jews in Israel is a long an d complex one, but I don’t think you can boil it down to “The Jews stole that land”.

          • Gay Veteran

            I’m talking about when they first arrived, not 20th century

      • Wesley

        Genesis 12:3 was a promise given specifically to Abraham and his seed not to Israel. St. Paul the Apostle is crystal in Galatians that the seed mention in that verse was Christ not a race of people. if blessing Israel gave us national debt that went from $1trillion in the late 1980s to today of around $18trillion, President Reagan so respected in the world even by the Soviet leaders to President Obama whom the only world leaders that respect are on capital hill i would really hate to see the curse.

        • Bitsey

          Umm…Abraham and his seed are Israel and seed is not mentioned in the verse. “And I will make thee a great nation, and I will bless thee…” The Lord is speaking of the nation He will make through Abraham (physical Israel) and how He will protect Israel.

          • folgers22

            I thought that passage was specifically speaking of the people, not a physical place. The sovereign nation of Israel did not exist then. I don’t even believe the modern concept of a nation existed then. Based on my reading and my understanding of the terms, when they speak of “nations,” they seem to be speaking more about specific groups, not geographic locations.

            In any case, what guaranty is there the nation of Israel in the biblical term is the same as the country of Israel today?

            If the blessings of God are reserved only for the nation of Israel, not the people, how did they lose Israel in the first place? How did one Arab tank cross the frontier in 1967? How did all those rocket attacks and suicide bombings succeed?

            I can’t help wondering how there can be so many Arabs in the world today if God really curses people who don’t like Israel. What was He doing during the Intifada? Hell, what was He doing in the 1940s?

          • Bitsey

            I’m sorry I did not make myself clear. By physical Israel I meant not the land but the descendants of Abraham. I thought Wesley was making reference to the scripture “not all Israel is Israel…” The land belongs to Abraham’s descendants. That’s what Genesis 12:3 is about. The Lord tells Abraham his descendants will be as numerous as the stars in the sky…a nation and any who bless will be blessed and any who curse will be cursed.

            Back in 2005 Bush supported the withdrawal of residents along the gaza strip. I remember pics of people being forced from their homes. One week later hurricane Katrina struck. That’s and example of a curse. I’ve heard whatever you curse Israel with will come back on you. If you look up each time a US president has initiated or proposed “peace talks” that end in Israel giving up land there have been disasters here in the U.S. Hurricane Andrew…the earthquake in California where the highway collapsed. Etc. So, if Obama allows Iran a bomb (Iran has been very clear about wiping Israel off the map) then what do you think will happen here in the U.S.?

          • folgers22

            No, it is an example of your personal susperstitious nature. Trying to connect a natural disaster to events in another place or someone’s personal actions is irrational. The human brain is good at spotting patterns, even where none exist. There is no way you can link these two events.

            Why would God kill thousands of people, destroy millions of dollars in property, ruin untold numbers of lives, pollute the land and surrounding waters, yet leave untouched the one dude running the nation and his administration?
            That makes no sense at all, especially when you consider how many Americans DO support Israel the people and/or the nation.

            You can’t connect the two, especially since Katrina was the predictable result of a powerful storm hitting a poverty-stricken region with decades of corrupt political mismanagement. Nothing about Katrina seems supernatural. Trying to claim a hurricane was God’s Wrath is as silly as claiming rain is Angels’ tears and thunder is God’s anger over whatever. Trying to make that connection makes you look silly. It’s like the Westboro Baptist Church’s claims that God kills our soldiers because we have gay marriage.

            Besides-if God is omnipotent and omniscient, why would he need to wait a week to strike us down? Why not strike down George Bush personally? And Why didn’t He strike down the Israeli leadership, who also did it? It was Israeli troops who enforced the decision. Why not punish them? And with the many, many, many attacks by the Palestinians, why are any of them left on Earth?

            In fact-if God takes such a personal interest in the Jews, where has He been for the last couple thousand years when they were slaughtered in Germany, oppressed throughout Europe, slaughtered by the Arabs, oppressed by the Turks, tortured by the Catholics, oppressed and slaughtered by the Russians, etc? Seems like He was slacking off a lot when he could have been cursing lots of folks.

      There is no such thing as a Palestinian people and never has been. They are simply stragglers that moved into the area to find work on thriving Jewish farms that popped up where swamps once stood.

  • krinks

    “They” had a second state if that was their true desire in 1948. They didn’t want it then and still don’t. What they want is a better staging ground for an attack on Israel. The attack will come and yet again they will lose.

    • iris

      Exactly, krinks. In 1947, when the Arab states understood that Jews would again have a homeland, they warned all Arabs living in what was to be designated Israel, to run for their lives, as the plan was to destroy Israel, and those Arabs’ countries of origin said they would not guarantee their safety if living there at the time. Never mind that NONE of those countries of origin have accepted the now-termed Palestinians back into their own states, NONE. It’s quite convenient to vilify a country for trying to secure their sovereignty and security when every country around them wants them annihilated, they want all Jews annihilated, in fact. Oil has had a lot to do with what MSM spews, as well, pun not intended. Anyway, the day after statehood went into effect, war broke out on several fronts, to destroy the country, and attempts are ongoing. If all one hears are the droning puppets of MSM, day after day after day, spitting out the same politically correct story line (never mind that only 6 entities in the U.S. control over 95% of what we see on TV, newspapers, radio, even the movie theaters are in their pockets) what else could be expected?

  • Gay Veteran

    maybe you Christian fundamentalists should send YOUR money to Israel, but not our tax dollars

  • Kent Harris

    Catholics and let me be very clear on this are NOT Christians. Catholics throughout history have shown their animosity towards the Jews along with those who adhere to the Bible. Let us not forget how they burned Christians at the stake. The very idea that someone would even call the pope His Holiness or Holy Father is an outrage.

    11 For some members of Chloe’s household have told me about your quarrels, my dear brothers and sisters. 12 Some of you are saying, “I am a follower of Paul.” Others are saying, “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Peter,[d]” or “I follow only Christ.”

    13 Has Christ been divided into factions? Was I, Paul, crucified for you? Were any of you baptized in the name of Paul? Of course not! 14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 for now no one can say they were baptized in my name.

    The problem with a two-state solution is that for the Jews in the Middle East it becomes a “One State Solution” (just Palestine!) and if the Hamas/Hezbollah Islamist nuts get their way, that becomes the “Final Solution”, (driving the Jews out of the middle east) and that’s not good for Jews, Christians, Arabs or anyone!! And Israel will not go away quietly in any case. Somebody might want to remind Obama and his oh so smart know-it-all friends among the chatterati about all this. (Tom Friedman, that includes you!) They probably won’t listen though. They’re too smart for such “right wing blather”. Just like with this so called “rapprochement” with Iran! (Kind like Joe Kennedy with Hitler in ’38-’40) Kyrie Eieison, Christe Eleison.

    The world will be in even greater turmoil (Divine Judgment) should they choose to divide Israel (again)! Please study these posts AND pray:

    Listen prayerfully to Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn (8 min. video) at the National Prayer Breakfast- he nails it. America is in profound trouble, having turned from YHVH GOD and His Holy Word found ONLY in the Bible, and instead daily chooses to follow after idols (including atheistic humanism): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stPCMvM3R_M
    Are WE willing to fight for the soul of our nation? https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2015/04/04/prepare-for-divine-visitation/

      Another asshole.

  • Whitebuck

    The only difference in Nazi Germany and Nazi America is their targeted Race for extermination. It’s White Judeo-Christian middle class America and the Jews! Barack Hussein Obama II is the Anti-Christ!

  • Whitebuck

    This is the truth about Islam, it’s a vicious tyrannical Theocracy, masquerading as a Religion! “Your tactics are exposed. Islam is NOT a religion, but rather a theocracy. … It seeks complete domination; to say otherwise is a complete and utter lie. It is totalitarian and littered with human rights violations. …

    The last thing the Middle East needs, is another tyrannical totalitarian Theocracy. With it’s insane hate filled Doctrine, of bigotry and racism!

    Palestine must be given back to Palestininas, who are the legitimate owners.

    • adam

      Great by that regard, Israel should be given to the British, the Turks, the Jewish people and the arab people because those are the people that took the name Palestinian when they lived in Palestine, a country ruled by the Ottamans and then the British. History educations don’t make uninformed statements.

    I guess this has always been a pro Palestinian Terror Site..

    Now would we ever shoot rockets into Isreal….those mean groups we elected did it!!

  • ► What are they gonna shoot if you take away the rockets?

  • ► Well, let the Jews use rocks, then, and we can have their free army back

    • boldly

      Perhaps you should relay that to them, you seem to be very tack-ful !

      • ► I told them a thing or two

        Why don’t you kiss their åss?

    • boldly

      The Jews will never have to throw rocks, their arsonel is the greatest in the world.

      • ► You mean their arsenal, yes, it’s super cool.

  • boldly

    What is really serious here is, there is a much bigger picture with Israel/Palestine than we know and are discussing. The ignorance as you call it is none of us here talking truly do not know enough politically to put the big picture together. Some think they know and it’s obvious.

    If the USA recognized a Palestinian state and force Israel to give up land,
    Then the USA will have done to it, what it has done to Israel.
    Those who talk about justice for the Palestinians, make me laugh.
    These people’s we call Palestinians days are numbered, Jerusalem and Israel are they apple of God’s eye.
    Last time Mr Bush forced Israel to give up land, he forced 80,000 off their settlements. Hurricane Katrina occurred and displaced 80,000.
    Still want to mess with father and i will predict much worse for the USA brought to us by this lying sodomite president.
    We are already headed for judgement for embracing transgender and homosexuality, let alone 50 million aborted babies, push this statehood
    And see the great tribulation start too.
    There is way that seems right to a man but in the end it is the way of death.

  • adam

    Peaceful resistance, ha!! That is comedic.

  • frank

    OK.. Let’s cut the crap…..the israeli Lobby/control of US is perhaps the only reason Palestine is not restored, much less established. Is anybody informed here? Frankly, israel is going to steal Palestinian land until they are stopped.
