Israel got the shaft again yesterday as the U(seless) N(ations) General Assembly voted 138 to 9, with 41 nations abstaining, to grant the ‘so-called’ Palestinians non-member observer state status.
“The only way to reach peace is through agreements between the parties, not at the UN.” said Israeli ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, in direct contrast to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ plea that this was the “last chance to save the two-state solution” with Israel.
By saying that the Palestinians will accept no less than “the independence of the State of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital, on all the Palestinian territory occupied in 1967, to live in peace and security alongside the State of Israel, and a solution for the refugee issue on the basis of resolution 194,” Abbas actually “violated agreements with Israel, and Israel will act accordingly” according to a statement issued immediately after the vote by Prime Minister Netanyahu’s office.
This statement makes it clear to all that yesterday’s vote frees Israel of its obligations under the Oslo Accords, because the vote is a blatant violation of the underlying principle of those agreements, meaning that both sides had agreed that all major issues would be resolved through direct negotiations, not through unilateral actions…as in who the hell does the U(seless) N(ations) think they are dictating new boundaries to the sovereign state of Israel.
And while yesterday’s vote is really nothing but a symbolic political move in the Palestinian demand for statehood, it does allow the Palestinians to now participate in debates at the UN, and to join UN agencies and bodies like the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The most barbaric criminals of all becoming part of the International Criminal Court…the lunacy of this is just beyond belief.
But then again when it comes to the U(seless) N(ations) common sense and logic goes right out the window.
And how did this vote happen…the timing says it all. If this vote had been taken while Hamas was raining rockets down on Israel, this cleverly calculated move by Palestinian officials of asking countries to recognize an independent Palestinian state (with borders following the ceasefire lines which separated Israel and the West Bank before June 1967… including the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, all occupied by Israel during the 1967 Six Day War) might never have gone their way.
Knowing these are the borders the Palestinians want, Benjamin Netanyahu completely, totally, and rightly so has publicly rejected these territorial lines as a basis for any negotiations because they are ‘unrealistic’ and ‘indefensible’ leaving Israel at some points only 8 miles wide…easily overrun by her enemies…so with this vote NOT caring about Netanyahu’s concerns, the countries of the world have now shown Israel that they really must go it alone.
And Netanyahu fully realizing that Israel would face a diplomatic defeat said that regardless of how many countries voted against Israel, “no force in the world will get me to compromise on Israel’s security nor could any force in the world ever sever the thousands-year-old tie between the Jewish people and the land of Israel.”
Netanyahu said that the decision will “Not change anything on the ground. It will not further the establishment of a Palestinian state, but will make it more distant.”
And I so agree as somethings are just NOT open to discussion…like a divided Jerusalem will NEVER happen…the U(seless) N(ations be damned.
And just so people don’t forget, here is history lesson 101…there are NO such thing as Palestinians…NO such thing at all. The idea of a ‘Palestinian people’ with a language, culture and nationality all their own, is something created by former PLO head Yasser Arafat in the 1960’s. This creation was embellished upon by the surrounding Arab nations and the media after the humiliating Arab defeat to Israel in the ’67 war. Today’s so-called ‘Palestinian people’ are just regular run of the mill Arabs who speak Arabic, whose religion, or should I say whose cult is islam, and whose real culture is shared by the surrounding Arab countries.
And remember, these Arabs had a homeland…it was called Trans-Jordan back in 1948 when Israel was formed, but their own Jordanian people didn’t want them then and they still don’t want them now.
So, the bottom line is that yesterday the U(seless) N(ations) gave observer state status to a people that don’t even exist…and we’re supposed to take this organization seriously…I don’t think so.
And if it wasn’t such a serious issue concerning Israel, the U(seless) N(ations) vote would actually be laughable…just as they are.
