A Palestinian State Cometh: UN Secretary-General Calls For Imminent Action To Save The ‘Two State Solution’

un-security-council-photo-by-hu-totyaUnited Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has harshly criticized Israeli settlements in the West Bank and is calling for urgent action to save “the two state solution”. He insists that Israeli settlements in the West Bank “are illegal under international law” and he told reporters that the “occupation” of Palestinian-controlled territories “must end”. These comments represent perhaps the strongest statements that any UN Secretary-General has ever made against Israel, and they come at a very ominous time. As I detailed just a few days ago, there is a major push to try to get some sort of UN Security Council resolution on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before Barack Obama leaves office. As you will see below, this is something that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon obviously endorses.

 

Those that are hoping for a “two state solution” know that fresh negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians are not likely to happen any time in the near future. So if the “peace process” is going to move forward, it is going to have to happen at the United Nations.

Ban Ki-moon is among those that are desperate to try to save the “two state solution”, and as the UN begins a new annual session this week he is urging imminent action. The following comes from the official UN website

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called for intensified efforts to encourage Israelis and Palestinians to take the difficult steps required to change the current destructive trajectory of the conflict, which is heading towards a “one-state reality” rather than a peaceful resolution.

“Twenty-three years ago, almost to the day, the first Oslo Accord was signed between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation,” the Secretary-General told the Security Council in a briefing on the situation in the Middle East.

“Unfortunately, we are further than ever from its goals. The two-state solution is at risk of being replaced by a one-state reality of perpetual violence and occupation,” he warned.

Using the term “occupation” clearly shows which side of the fence Ban Ki-moon is on, and he went on to declare that the “occupation” of the West Bank by Israel “must end”

Turning to Israel’s settlement activities, Mr. Ban said that in the past two weeks alone, plans were advanced for yet another 463 housing units in four settlements in Area C of the West Bank. Official Israeli data shows that the second quarter of 2016 had the highest number of construction starts in three years.

“The decades-long policy that has settled more than 500,000 Israelis in Palestinian territory is diametrically opposed to the creation of a Palestinian state,” he said.

“Let me be absolutely clear: settlements are illegal under international law. The occupation, stifling and oppressive, must end,” he said.

Those that have followed Ban Ki-moon’s career know that he is a relatively soft-spoken guy.

To make these kinds of incendiary comments is basically his version of shouting from the rooftops. He appears to be obsessed with getting something done to formally establish a Palestinian state, and he knows that he realistically only has until January 20th, 2017 to accomplish his goal.

As I mentioned above, a new UN annual session begins this week, and many are concerned that a UN Security Council resolution that sets the parameters for a Palestinian state will be on the agenda. The following is from a Wall Street Journal article that was published just a couple of days ago…

The United Nations began its annual session this week, and Israel will be prominent on the agenda. Many fear the Security Council may consider a resolution setting definite territorial parameters, and a deadline, for the creation of a Palestinian state. President Obama has hinted that in the final months of his term, he may reverse the traditional U.S. policy of vetoing such resolutions. The General Assembly, meanwhile, is likely to act as the chorus in this drama, reciting its yearly litany of resolutions criticizing Israel.

If such a UN Security Council resolution gets passed, it will be far more important than the outcome of the U.S. presidential election in November. Recently I had the opportunity to explain why this is the case on one of the biggest Christian television shows in America

Unfortunately, when I do articles like this they tend to get a less attention than many of my other articles typically do.

The truth is that most Americans simply don’t understand the importance of what is going on in the Middle East.

In fact, one recent survey discovered that less than a third of all U.S. Millennials can find Israel on a map of the world

Less than one-third of US-educated millennials are able to identify Israel on a map, a new survey has found.

According to the joint study — titled “What College-Aged Students Know About the World: A Survey on Global Literacy” — conducted by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and National Geographic, a mere 31 percent of respondents knew the location of Israel on a map of the Middle East.

Can you believe that?

How can our young people go to school year after year after year and not be able to point to Israel on a world map?

That is inexcusable, and it is yet another example of how our system of education has become a complete and utter disgrace.

And I was shocked to learn that UC Berkeley was actually going to have a college course about how to remove Jewish “colonialists” from “the land of Palestine”. The following comes from the Jerusalem Post

This week I learned that beginning this year, the prestigious UC Berkeley will be offering a course on “settler colonialism” in Israel, meaning Jews as colonialists.* “Drawing upon literature on decolonization, [the course] will explore the possibilities of a decolonized Palestine.” In other words, let’s talk about how to eradicate Israel altogether. But not only the course facilitator will explore these possibilities, students will be required to “research, formulate, and present decolonial alternatives to the current situation.”

After criticism from the Jewish community, that course was canceled by UC Berkeley, but it still shows how anti-Semitism is on the rise in America.

All over the country, the tiny nation of Israel provokes extremely strong emotional reactions. Most people either really love the Jewish people or they really hate them.

And as the drama in the Middle East continues to unfold, support for Israel is going to become a major, major political issue in this nation.

But the very next thing that we are watching for is a UN Security Council resolution formally establishing a Palestinian state and granting them East Jerusalem as their capital.

Now that a new UN annual session has started, we are officially in the danger zone, and we will remain in the danger zone until the next president is inaugurated on January 20th, 2017.

Let us hope that nothing happens between now and then, because such a resolution would be one of the worst things that Barack Obama could possibly do.

 
  • oUCH

    I’ve always wondered what excuse or reason Gog/Magog would use to attack Israel.. possibly soon, Israels rejection of a UN mandate which will attempt to redraw their borders and split their capitol city will be the “hook” in the jaws of those modern countries which will real them in to do battle in the Valley of Megido.. where they will utterly perish. Interesting times these…

    • JF

      That battle in the Valley of Megiddo doesn’t take place until 7 years after the peace treaty is signed. However, I would not be surprised if this split took place that God gets even with us by splitting the USA with that New Madrid fault earthquake.

      • Lazarovic

        Dispensationalist nonsense… You’ve been brainwashed by people who made up that story. It’s not traditional Christian teaching. It came along in the 1800s, from a man named Darby. Not the Apostles. Wake up.

  • iris

    Quite the contrary, as international law recognizes that if a nation is attacked, which obviously has occurred multiple times against Israel, that nation has every right to any territory gained in an ensuing war in self defense. But oil talks much louder than law when it comes to Israel. What hypocrisy.

  • Jason

    I totally agree Mike. And I believe if this is successful that will be the end of the United States as we knew it. This is our last leg. So forget the coming election we need to speak with our current president Obama on this matter before it’s too late.

  • amongoose

    There would be peace tomorrow if ….
    you could get the muslims to knock off the violence and recognize Israel’s right to exist.
    .
    Or is that too much to ask?

    • IM

      Some Muslims there recognize Israel’s right to exist, but Israel needs to recognize Palestine’s right to exist. Violence has been committed by both sides, but Israel has been oppressing.

      • Shosh 7154

        Have you spoken to the G-d of Israel concerning HIS LAND ?

      • Louigide

        Wake up! Israel has tried to bring peace many times. Palestine refuses by denying Israel’s right. Try to remember, Israel’s God is the God of Peace. Allah is the god of murder and torture.

        • iris

          Agree, as witnessed yet again as to intent; here in this country, separate incidents reported in the last 24 hours. Those are the reported ones, how many one on one, two on one, three on one, incidents never make the news for the sake of political correctness.

      • Mike

        Most “Palestinians” are Jordanian transplants. Many of them are there (sponsored) to stir up trouble in the region.

      • Spectrum

        “…If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more
        ‎violence. If the Jews put ‎down their weapons ‎today, there would be
        no ‎more Israel…”.

        ― Benjamin Netanyahu

        • iris

          Yep.

      • Elainee Perkins

        These fake Palestinians are Arabs. They belong in Jordan. That is why that Britain took 2/3 of the land promised to Israel and gave it to the Arabs to create the Arab state called Trans-Jordan, which is now called Jordan. That left Israel with 1/3 of the land promised to them in the Balfour Declaration. But the Arabs and Muslims don’t want Israel to have any land at all. These Arabs are the occupiers. They are occupying the land promised to JEHOVAH GOD’s Chosen Inheritance (the Jewish people)

        GOD will have the “Final” say on the land in question and the Jewish people will get every inch of land that GOD promised them; However, they are going to have to go through a lot more persecution and probably another Holocaust before that happens.

        BUT, JEHOVAH GOD is not a liar; HE cannot lie and HIS Holy Word is FINAL.

    • Frontierland

      Or if you just gassed all the Semites, Jews, Arabs, all of them… once and for all.

      • iris

        but you’re just all that, and sliced bread with a cherry on top. ewwww-k.

  • Lazarovic

    The Arabs already have plenty of countries. There is no “Palestine”, never was. They can become citizens of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, or any other Arab state, because they’re Arabs. They should have made peace with the Jews back in ’48, then there would have been no wars. They had their chance, they chose war. Now they can go pound sand.

    • iris

      Agree. Their countries won’t take them back though, I assume because the situation serves their purposes; to “wipe Israel off the map”, as has so very, very often, and quite recently again, been stated by the leaders of Arab countries, to bring in more money from naive and bleeding heart liberals to further the building of tunnels and the purchase of more weaponry, rather than use it to take care of their citizens, and to give non Arab countries someone to blame, when the real reason has to to with oil.

  • greanfinisher .

    What’s wrong with the establishment of a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as the capital? That state should have been created decades ago.

    • Cugel the Clever

      I’m moving into your house. You’ll have to take all your belongings out of the rooms I want. If you don’t like it I’ll shoot rockets at you and your family until you surrender.

      • greanfinisher .

        Shoot rockets at UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon too? After all, this was his initiative.

        • iris

          Have to disagree with you re: Moon, he’s nothing more than a shill for the oil rich Arab countries which want Israel and Jews destroyed, and powerful oil families around the world, some of them here, which bend over backward to make sure those countries are kept happy, no matter the consequences. It’s a deadly farce.

          • iris

            Of course, he’s also a shill for the globalists and the Gaia worshipers.

        • Shosh 7154

          It is written…what he does to Israel will be done to him….look what G-d says about those who would take Jerusalem away from the Jews.
          Zechariah 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be CUT IN PIECES, though ALL the people of the earth be assembled against it.

          Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the L-RD is near upon all the nations: as you have done to Israel, it shall be done to you: your reward shall return upon your own head.

          • Cugel the Clever

            Shosh means “God” when he says “G-d”, and he means “Lord” when he says “L-RD”.

            He thinks that the LORD God will get offended by an “O” and an “o”.

          • Shosh 7154

            There was a time when I grieved Him with my attitude, words and actions. I never considered His feelings, but since I have given myself to Yeshua/Jesus I have come to know how wonderful His friendship and love are. They mean more than my life. In Him I have my whole being. I had no idea what love was until I met Him.

        • Cugel the Clever

          Don’t run and hide. It was YOUR comment.

    • Shosh 7154

      Have you heard what the G-d of Israel says about Israel ?

      • Cugel the Clever

        Why don’t you just say “God”?
        I think he’s big enough to be able to handle an “o”.

        • Shosh 7154

          It’s how we honor G-d by distinguishing His name and title.

  • James Staten

    There is no debate. This may very well be the last time America sticks it’s finger in the “Apple of God’s Eye”. Judgment is Coming!!!

  • Tatiana Covington

    Here’s an idea… let them kill each other off.

    • Shosh 7154

      Be it unto you according to your desire for Israel

      • Tatiana Covington

        What is so wonderful about Israel anyway?

        • Shosh 7154

          Here is the promise G-d made to the whole world concerning Israel who is a person and a land. Abraham (Abram) is the father of Isaac and Jacob whose name G-d Himself changed to the name Israel who is the father of the 12 sons who are the forefathers of Jews/Israel …Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, and curse him who curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.
          Out of Israel comes the Saviour of the whole world, the One promised from the woman in the garden whose Seed would crush the head of the serpent/satan who lied to her. Yeshua/Jesus did that when He became sin for every sinner, dying the death we all should die entering a place of horrific agony in the flames forever in your name and my name and every name of every sinner who has will or ever will live. When the Saviour rose on the third day, He became the WAY OUT OF SIN FOREVER FOR ALL WHO WILL COME TO HIM and this is the sweetest knowledge, to know the One Who loves you more than anyone can ever love you, no matter who you are or what you have done, His love is greater than your sin and He is willing right now to give you the happiness your heart has longed for your whole life. He says that if you will call on His name to save you, your whole life will change now and forever…from death to life, from darkness to light, from lies to truth….contentment in the deepest place of need and utter fullness of joy in His presence now and forever….This is what is so wonderful about Israel…His eternal name is G-d of Israel…Israel means Prince of G-d and that is Who Yeshua/Jesus is and He wants to become to you the Prince Who alone can rescue you from eternal separation from Him in Hell.

          • Tatiana Covington

            Come now, Israel is actually just a nation-state with the strategic triad: subs, armies, long-range missiles, all with nuclear weapons. True, Jews have gotten kicked from pillar to post. But the same is true of almost every ethnic group. So I don’t care about Israelis any more than I do about Tibetans.

          • Cugel the Clever

            Wow. Some people just don’t believe the Word of God and they can’t be convinced no matter what you say.

            Tell me Tatiana, why do you think your poor little opinion is so much more informed than God’s?

          • Frontierland

            You wanna pull that giant jewish dildo out of your mouth now?

          • Shosh 7154

            Here is the promise G-d made to the whole world …Salvation would come from Israel for the whole world. It’s good news!

          • Cugel the Clever

            “G-d” = “God”.

          • Shosh 7154

            He is not like us in the sense that He demands your love or else. He gives you an open door to walk through…It’s so much better on this side. The air is sweet and fresh, nothing dead in His presence. Look what is written about Him: John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved…

        • Cugel the Clever

          Read the book of Romans and you’ll see what’s so wonderful about Israel.

          If you don’t believe the Bible then you’re destined for hell anyway.

    Shalom and what does this article have to do with the “End of the American Dream”? oops sorry I will send all my tax dollars to the 51st state for making that comment.

    • Buddyb

      If the Security Council resolution mentioned is put up for a vote, and IF the US fails to veto it, you will soon see what this has to do with the end of the American dream. God has declared that He will loose His wrath on any nation that divides His land. What millions have long thought of as “the American Dream'” will become “The American Nightmare”. Who can withstand God’s wrath?

      • Toller

        Strong societies always survive. Not sure why your God would hold America accountable for something most of the world supports.

        • Buddyb

          Always survive? No ‘democracy has survived more than a few hundred years. And by saying “my god”, are you indicating you believe in a god, just not mine, or are you saying you do not believe there is a god? If the former, I can tell you a lot about MY God. if the latter, well, there is no arguing with a fool.

          • Toller

            I didn’t say democracy and thanks for the name calling.

    Long live Palestine!!!!

    • Shosh 7154

      • Toller

        LITERALLY?

    • Shosh 7154

      In order to live long, it has to EXIST. I work for the U.S. government and the list of countries the U.S. recognizes does NOT include anything called Palestine. G-d of Israel does NOT recognize a country called Palestine.

      • Toller

        Your God doesn’t like Palenstians. Good for him.

        • Shosh 7154

          There is nothing called “Palestinian”. G-d does not recognize such a country. And all people are made in His own image. He loves everyone and takes no pleasure in the death of those who choose to die without the salvation He purchased for them with His own blood and three days and nights in Hell in their name

          • Toller

            Well they have a flag not a country

          • Shosh 7154

            Jews have a G-d Whose eternal name is G-d of Israel stated 453 times in the recorded Word of the Most High G-d.

        • iris

          He loves them and wants each of them to be with Him forever, which is available through faith and reception of Jesus Christ as God and savior. But He’s going to be faithful to His promises. If they insist on doing everything in their power to annihilate Israel, He’s not going to approve those attitudes and behaviors.

          • Toller

            Like I said he doesn’t like them. The Palenstians Armed Forces couldn’t annihilate Israel.

      • Toller

        Our glorious President just sent them 38 billion. What about the folks under occupation?

        • Shosh 7154

          Israel is a tiny nation the size of Rhode Island surrounded by a vast sea of arab land from which those who took the title “Palestinian” from the Roman Titus who burned Jerusalem to the ground, killed thousands of Jews, driving them into the nations and renamed Israel by the name of her worst enemies, the plishtim (Titus did not know Hebrew so he renamed Israel “Palestine”). Here is the history of Israel according to the G-d of Israel: Genesis 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: Exodus 32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your own self, and said to them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

  • Scott Pease

    It will be the beginning of the 7 year tribulation when Israel signs a peace agreement with the Palestinians.

    • iris

      The 7 year covenant could be something different, or it could be this, if it happens. We’ll need to research it carefully, as tptb are probably aware that some will be scrutinizing the news of it, and may not want timetables to be widely announced. Or perhaps in their hubris, they’ll state it openly, making sure that the world knows that the country they detest so much, only has so much time to tow the line. Psalm 2: 4-6 “He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury: But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain”. NASB

    So, in truth, it is God’s Land to give to whom He wishes. He said if the Israelites disobeyed Him and walked contrary to Him, He would exile them off of the Land and this is exactly what happened. He also said the day will come when the entire world will understand He exhiled them for their disobedience. This occurs after He brings back those who are obedient from among the nations.

  • Elainee Perkins

    The reason the millennials can’t find Israel on the Middle East map is because the land that ISRAEL controls is nothing but a sliver of land (0.6% of 1%). The Arabs and Muslims own the other 99+%. The US, UN, France, EU, and all of the International Community should be ashamed of what they are trying to do to Israel. Judgment is coming for ALL those countries, nations and people who are hell bent on dividing JEHOVAH GOD’s land.
