united-nations-general-assembly-hall-in-the-un-headquarters-photo-by-basil-d-soufiLast Wednesday, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly voted to adopt 6 outrageous anti-Israel resolutions. These resolutions address a wide variety of issues including “a two state solution”, the status of the Golan Heights and a “lasting solution to the question of the City of Jerusalem”. Unlike UN Security Council resolutions, these UN General Assembly resolutions are not considered to be legally binding upon the parties, but they do show that virtually the entire planet is in favor of dividing the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. In addition, even though the U.S. voted against each of these resolutions, there is still a tremendous amount of buzz that the Obama administration may decide to go along with a UN Security Council resolution that would set the parameters for a “two state solution” before the end of Barack Obama’s term comes on January 20th.


I have not seen a single mainstream news article about these UN General Assembly resolutions that were just passed. The only way that I learned about them is because someone sent me a link to an announcement on the official UN website. In this article I want to share with you some extended excerpts from that announcement so that you can see for yourself exactly how the UN feels about Israel.

The first resolution that was adopted calls for an “intensification of efforts” to bring about “a final peace settlement” between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Of course any “final peace settlement” would mean a “two state solution” that permanently divides the land of Israel into two separate nations. 153 countries voted in favor of this resolution, but fortunately the United States was one of the seven nations that voted against it

The Assembly adopted a resolution on the peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine (document A/71/L.21) by a recorded vote of 153 in favour to 7 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, United States), with 7 abstentions (Australia, Cameroon, Honduras, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Tonga, Vanuatu). By the terms of the resolution, the Assembly called for the intensification of efforts by the parties, including through negotiations, with the support of the international community, towards the conclusion of a final peace settlement.

The next resolution that was adopted addressed the status of Jerusalem. The resolution refers to Israel as “the occupying power”, and it calls for the city to be permanently divided between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Once again, the vote in favor of this resolution was incredibly lopsided

The Assembly also adopted a resolution on Jerusalem (document A/71/L.22) by a recorded vote of 149 in favour to 7 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, United States), with 8 abstentions (Australia, Cameroon, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Vanuatu). By its terms, the Assembly reiterated its determination that any actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem were illegal and therefore null and void and had no validity whatsoever, and called upon Israel to immediately cease all such illegal and unilateral measures. The Assembly also stressed that a comprehensive, just and lasting solution to the question of the City of Jerusalem should take into account the legitimate concerns of both the Palestinian and Israeli sides.

Subsequently, the UN General Assembly also passed a resolution that calls for Israel to withdraw from the Golan Heights. Sadly, the vote in favor of this resolution was also overwhelming

By the terms of a resolution on the Syrian Golan (document A/71/L.8), the Assembly demanded that Israel withdraw from all the occupied territory to the line of 4 June 1967 and called on all parties concerned to exert the necessary efforts to ensure the resumption of the peace process. That resolution received 103 in favour to 6 against (Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Palau, United States), with 56 abstentions.

The General Assembly also passed three other anti-Israel resolutions last Wednesday, but none of them were nearly as important as the first three that I described. But just like with the other resolutions, the votes were not even close

In adopting a resolution on the Special Information Programme on the Question of Palestine of the Department of Public Information of the Secretariat (document A/71/L.20), the Assembly renewed the Department’s mandate. It also requested the Department to disseminate information on all activities relating to the question of Palestine and peace efforts and to organize and promote fact-finding news missions for journalists to the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including East Jerusalem, and Israel. That text garnered 153 votes in favour to 7 against (Australia, Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Palau, United States), with 7 abstentions (Cameroon, Honduras, Nauru, Paraguay, Togo, Tonga, Vanuatu).

The Assembly also adopted a resolution on the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (A/71/L.18), as orally revised, by a recorded vote of 100 in favour to 9 against (Australia, Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Guatemala, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, United States), with 55 abstentions, and a resolution on the Division for Palestinian Rights of the Secretariat (document A/71/L.19), with 98 in favour to 9 against (Australia, Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, Guatemala, Israel, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, United States), with 57 abstentions.

Needless to say, the Palestinians were absolutely thrilled by the outcome of these votes.

In fact, the Palestinian representative at the United States boldly declared that these resolutions represent “a clear reaffirmation of the international community’s consensus on the two-State solution”.

And it is true – virtually the entire planet wants to see the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem permanently divided.

The only thing that has been preventing that from happening has been the U.S. veto power on the UN Security Council. Unlike General Assembly resolutions, UN Security Council resolutions are considered to be legally binding on the parties. France was ready to introduce a Security Council resolution last September that would have officially divided the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem, but the Obama administration stopped it. Previously I have spoken about how it appears that a “pause button” was hit at that point, but now there is a lot of speculation that Barack Obama may reverse course and decide to support such a resolution at the Security Council before his term ends on January 20th.

If Barack Obama betrays Israel at the United Nations between now and January 20th, it will be one of the most prophetically significant events that we have ever seen, and the consequences for this nation (and for the rest of the world) will be exceedingly severe.

As you can see from the UN General Assembly resolutions discussed above, there is a global consensus that the land of Israel should be divided, and the only one standing in the way right now is Barack Obama.

Let us hope that he doesn’t decide to do something extremely foolish before handing over the reigns to Donald Trump in late January.

    that’s if Trump even makes it to the Whitehouse in January. From what I read Soros & the Rothchilds are bribing Republican electoral college electors to the tune of $150,000.00 per elector to change their vote!
    yes Michael….. December 19th will be a day to watch.

    • Joan Camara

      Curious…why Dec 19th?

    • Scott


    • Charles Chauveheid

      is there sth particular I’ve gotta keep an eye upon on Dec 19?

  • Tatiana Covington

    But then again… why should I give a rap about Israel any more than about Uruguay?

    • susie

      funny how you don’t give a rap but you’re the first to comment

      • Tatiana Covington

        I felt like it!

    • Joan Camara

      You don’t know God’s word, and you don’t care about God at all…that puts you with satan….so why should we care about you? And if you didn’t care so much, why are you here, and why did you read this post?

      • Tatiana Covington

        No, it doesn’t. To each his own!

    • Jim Davis

      I’m much more pro-Uruguay. Who have they ever bothered? They certainly don’t meddle in US politics. Go Uruguay!

      • Tatiana Covington

        Nobody! And good for them. As for Israel’s hurt feelings: Suck it up, buttercup.

  • iris

    Let’s just call the un what is really is, the nations which are united against Israel. They could care absolutely less about any other issue than oppressing and annihilating that tiny country. Look at their abominable track record related to almost every country on the planet, especially considering what they say they’re about. Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, they would be cheering the un right now, if they could cheer, which I suspect, they cannot. Please make your voice heard if you have any respect or mercy for Israel, as this is an absolute green light as far as anti Semitic terrorists are concerned.

  • Brian

    The U.N. is comprised of global elites who desperately want a One World Government, One World Religon, and a One World Currency. They would also love to see the division/destruction of Israel.

    So….Make no mistake: The traitor in the White House is saving his worst for last by voting for the resolution of a two state solution because he’s a puppet of the aforementioned U.N. global elite.

  • Jim Davis

    Who cares? Are you an Israeli citizen, Michael? Dual citizen perhaps?

    • K

      Perhaps you should care. Any Country with a policy of never again. Who also possesses a moderate size nuclear arsenal perhaps should cause some concern. Look up the Sampson option. Also many Christians consider themselves grafted into Israel..

      • Charles Chauveheid

        yes and I do indeed consider myself grafted into Israel Olive Tree. And all this stuff grieves me and make me upset honestly speaking.

    • Grace

      Want to live under Sharia? Israel is the on Democracy in the Middle East. We are in the process of being taken over as well.

      Anyone who comes against Israel, comes against God, the God of Israel, the God of creation. He is quite clear where He stands and He is giving us opportunity to show where we stand. We are either with Him or against Him. it is very important.

      • Jim Davis

        If you want to believe the “chosen people” BS, then that’s your choice. The same people that you support have nothing but contempt and scorn for you and other evangelicals. Listen to Bill Maher or Sarah Silverman sometime. They make careers based on mocking Christians.

        • Grace

          Regardless of the contempt many have it does not and never will undo what God has done. Through the nation of Israel mankind has been redeemed. God restored our relationship to Himself through the work done through Israel.

          God chose the nation of Israel to not only reveal who He is and His love for mankind, but the nation of which He would come through to take on flesh to pay the price. He chose them to reveal the depth of His love to the world. That will never change.

          Many Jews may think that because they are chosen people that it is carte blanche into heaven and they can step on the rest of the world.

          Not so. That is the wrong interpretation. Reading Scriptures tells us time and again that God brought judgment upon Israel just as He does other nations who turn from Him and become wicked. Israel would eventually repent and turn to God and He would then restore them.

          He has always kept a remnant of people. Israel is the only nation on the face of the earth that has been taken captive or disbursed three times and yet remains to this day.

          All other nations are typically absorbed into the culture which took them over, however though many Jews were slaughtered and chased out of The Land in AD70, they were restored in 1948.

          They still have many of the same customs and have their Hebrew language. This is a God fulfilled prophecy. He said He would scatter them to the corners of the earth and that He would also call them back.

          God has His hand on Israel. That will never change. He will correct them, but He will never allow them to be removed from the earth.

          He came as Jesus Christ to do HIS work to make a way for us after this life to be with Him. This is God’s work.

          • Jim Davis

            There’s a reason why they’ve been chased out of so many lands!

          • Grace

            The same reason the LORD is allowing America to be infiltrated with enemies…. we have turned our hearts away from Him, destroyed His laws and followed other gods.

            God gives nations time to repent and turn back to Him. He has no pleasure in destroy the wicked, but He will in His time.

    • Leonie White

      Does one has to be a citizen of Israel to care what will occur? REALLY!!!!

  • Richard

    What is the big problem? Seriously, I have no idea what the fuss is all about?

    • Joan Camara

      That’s because you don’t know God’s word, and you really don’t care…so why’d you read this article in the first place? And by the way, hitler hated Israel, and so does satan, so which one would you partner with?

      • Richard


    • Imagine that you had land that has been in your family for hundreds of years and your neighbor hates you. He wants you to leave your land to the point that he would literally kill you to do it. That is how the Palestinian Authority feels about Israel.
      More than that, the homeowners association wants you out. They can’t legally make you leave, but they are constantly voting to do things to make it more difficult to be on your land. Whenever there is a vote, the neighborhood votes for your neighbor 153-7.
      How would that make you feel?
      Beyond that, the Palestinian Authority has made it clear that any “two-state permanent peace” solution is only a step toward driving the Jews into the Mediterranean Sea.

  • Ray S.

    I’m surprised people don’t understand (looks like majority of comments I am reading here) the significance of this. Anyone who considers themself a scholar or historian knows it is very serious to both the Jew and Christian who follows and believes the Biblical prophecies that are in both the Torah and the Holy Bible. These are measured by what happens in Israel. Pre-1948 of it becoming a state the Jews for over 2000 yrs were looking for signs on how that would be accomplished. It was written in the books of Ezekiel and Isaiah. It’s too complicated to explain to someone who has never read or study scripture. The short of it is that when Israel is divided after it has been given to the Jews (1948) the end time prophecies will begin. And these aren’t going to be good because they will be God’s judgements on those who divided the land. It warns us in scripture that those who divide it will be judged by God and He will divide them and in hour destroy them.

    • Joan Camara

      Ray, I believe the destruction of these people that want to divide the land, will face their persecution during the tribulation.
      I feel the 7 year peace treaty that will be signed between Israel and Palestine, will bring on the 7 year tribulation period. I’m gonna have goose bumps and shivers, when this treaty gets signed!!

      • GetReal4U2

        keep looking up brothers!

      • Grace

        I don’t want to be here when it is signed. Praying and watching for the rapture.

  • Scott

    Get the U.N. out of the U.S.! The East River in NY stinks enough, the U.N. makes it even worse.

    • Joan Camara

      So true…but when they make their army, that’s the time it’s all over….

  • SantosGarcia
  • Paul Richard Mattingly

    We are on the verge of the prophecies in Ezekiel 38-40 coming true. The Israelis will never acknowledge any of this. Another curse from 8 years of Obamamerica.

  • Mike Davis

    Obama and his heathens have decided to destroy Israel and they have started subverting several countries just to cause war. Started in Crimea and Ukraine to Aggravate Russia, went to Egypt, Libya to destroy the stable governments and start Chaos. Then went to Syria and Gave Iran all it asked for just to aggravate Saudi. Claimed that there were refugees that needed to be taken in to pass the destruction to Europe and USA. Is using China to take over Mexico, Phillpines and S America and then sell them the USA. Allowing ISIS to flourish and providing them weapons to kill all the Christians they can find. It is the antichrist spirit moving to Revelation. Time to prepare for the invasion of the USA
