We were squaring our gear away and getting ready to board ship when we got the word to stand down. Whaaaat?! The war had just started! It’s OVER already?!... The Israelis WON?!... And they didn’t need any help?! That was when we started using the phrase, “Man, you DO NOT wanna mess with the Children of God!”
It wasn’t until later that I learned just how outnumbered and out gunned the Israelis were... and how many countries they defeated to secure their freedom and way of life. That phrase we used has taken on a new and a real meaning for me. They were (and are) a country and people who have my deepest respect and admiration. And, just for the record, I happen to be Protestant.
Jimmy Carter gave us the stink hole that’s Iran. And now -- that nappy-headed, big eared, little nerd -- Obimbo wants Israel to revert back to the borders of 1967?
Here’s my thoughts on it, Obimbo -- when monkeys fly out my butt!
Excerpts from the article, 07/22/2011 04:07:07 AM, follow:
The United Nations Security Council has scheduled July 26th in New York, for open “debate” about whether or not they will seize Israeli land in September, and divide Jerusalem by establishing a Palestinian state, without negotiation or approval from Israel.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he feared a “surprise” move after the Quartet of the United Nations, EU, USA, and Russia met last Monday in DC, to endorse President Obama’s plan to enforce 1967 borders, and divide Jerusalem and seize Israeli land to form an independent Palestine, on either July 26th or in Sept. at the U.N.
Haaretz newspaper reported Quartet members “are expected to release a statement endorsing U.S. President Barack Obama’s May 19 speech on the Middle East, which called for...the borders of a future state based on pre-1967 lines...”
President Obama wrote in his book “I will stand with [Muslims] if the political winds shift in an ugly direction,” so I picture Obama siding with Palestinian President Abbas above, who said last week, “President Obama says he wants to see an independent Palestinian state by September.”There’s speculation that Obimbo didn’t even write the books that he’s SUPPOSEDLY written. How about Bill Ayers?!
Only the U.N. Security Council can vote to recognize new nations, and move borders. It is composed of 15 member nations among which only 5 have veto authority: USA, Britain, France, China, and Russia.
The fact any debate will occur on 26 July confirms a big U.N. vote will occur in September, and if President Obama’s U.N. delegation fails to veto, Israel will forfeit half its land and Jerusalem will become the Muslim capitol of the new state of Palestine.
President Obama has recently signaled that the U.S. may not veto such a land-grab, as Abbas said last week on Lebanese TV, quote: “President Obama says he wants to see an independent Palestinian state by September.” No wonder Abbas met with PLO leaders and decided to seize the moment, and East Jerusalem with it.
Israel would likely not recognize such a vote, and refuse to forfeit their land. Palestinians will declare independence and start a war in September, with the whole world against Israel.
This confirms the likelihood Obama will direct America’s U.N. representatives to NOT VETO the upcoming U.N. vote to seize Israeli land and establish an independent Palestine state, without any concern or negotiation for Israeli sovereignty.
If Obama does not veto this, it would immediately cause a violent war against Israel.
Abbas, who claims 116 of the 195 member states of the UN General Assembly are willing to recognize a Palestinian state, has stressed that his government would go through with the declaration if negotiations with Israel remain deadlocked. Israel hopes for 30 nations against, but America is the only among them who could veto the U.N. land grab.
Haaretz newspaper in Israel reported President Obama had privately given a 30-day ultimatum to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to either forfeit their land and revert to Obama’s 1967 border plan, or face punishment by the United Nations. A U.N. vote to recognize Palestine (and seize Israeli land) is scheduled for September, which could be vetoed by the United States, but Obama’s recent actions cast doubt upon whether the U.S. will veto any U.N. land-grab.
In other words, Obama issued an implied threat to destroy Israel, by endorsing the U.N. plan to seize her land, unless Netanyahu commits national suicide by returning to the 1967 borders (just nine miles wide in spots) which are militarily indefensible.
Netanyahu voiced his “vehement objection to starting peace talks on the basis of the 1967 lines, which he called ‘indefensible’ in both the Knesset and the U.S. Congress,” said Haaretz. Netanyahu is conservative, but without American help he stands alone in trying to preserve, not only Israel’s current borders, but their right to exist.
Bottom line: Without the USA’s veto of the U.N. plan, Israel will soon cease to exist as a nation.
Netanyahu has said, “Israel is what is right about the Middle East.” Israel is free. Israel is a Democracy. And, Israel is surrounded by tyrants and oppressive governments -- governments and people that can’t even get along with themselves.
Israel is also why America can go to bed and sleep peacefully at night. It’s Israel that’s OUR protector. Israel stands as a thorn in the side of the tyrants and oppressive governments that would chop her head off. Until these tyrants and oppressive governments can annihilate Israel, they know they can’t be perceived, by the rest of the world, as the really “bad boys on the block” when they can’t even bring down one tiny nation that they’ve been fighting for a couple of thousand of years.
It’s pretty telling that, just like in 1967, Israel isn’t asking for our war machines. Netanyahu has said in his speech that he doesn’t need that. Israel can protect itself. All that the Israelis ask for is that America stand strong with them. THEY are our strongest ally.
We need to choose our friends wisely. America SHOULD ALWAYS support Israel.
And, Obimbo, as far as you’re concerned -- when monkeys fly out my butt!
