The Looming Cloud of a New Holocuast
Last week, Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority told visiting members of the United States House of Representatives that it was his intention to establish a PA state in Judea and Samaria, with Jerusalem as its capital. He said that he was against any possibility of Jewish communities remaining in those areas.
In defense of the settlements and of insistence on Arab recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu encouraged cabinet members to use the Nazi-era word “Judenrein” – German for “cleansed of Jews” – and used the expression in his meeting with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. The PA has accused Israel of stalling talks by using such inflammatory language.
The United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations – the self-proclaimed Middle East Quartet – expressed “concern” Tuesday over construction for Israelis in Ariel a city in biblical Samaria. “The Quartet is greatly concerned by Israel’s recent announcements to advance planning for new housing units in Ariel and East Jerusalem,” the group declared. A United States State Department spokeswoman termed the housing plans “deeply troubling” and “counterproductive.” This of course means that Israel’s continued building in the so called ‘settlement’ area’s is counter-productive toward the American/UN agenda of establishing a Middle East and one world order under their direction.
The city of Ariel is one that Israel considers to be within the “national consensus,” that is, territories that Israel plans to keep under any future diplomatic agreement with the Palestinian Authority. Jerusalem is not only part of the consensus, but has been officially annexed to the rest of Israel. The Quartet statement appears to indicate that Quartet nations not only do not recognize Israel’s reunification of Jerusalem, but do not believe that Israel will truly be able to maintain control of “consensus” lands in talks with the PA.
The establishment of a Palestinian State will be taken up by the United Nations on September 20 0f this year, only a week before the High Holy Days. Given all the rhetoric, it appears the UN is prepared to sacrifice Israel in order to establish a barbaric people in the land given to Abraham, Issac and Jacob.
O God, do not remain quiet;
Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
And those who hate You have exalted themselves.
They make shrewd plans against Your people,
And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation,
That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
For they have conspired together with one mind;
Against You they make a covenant…. [Psalm 83:1-5]
