UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was more than just a carefully-orchestrated slap in Israel’s face by outgoing-US President Barack Obama.
It was a trigger, intentional or not, for renewed bloodshed.
The resolution essentially supports the Palestinian interpretation of Security Council Resolution 242, namely, that Jews have no right to live in any part of the so-called “West Bank,” including the eastern half of Jerusalem.
Several of those who authored Resolution 242 back in 1967 have stated that they intentionally did not demand that Israel surrender all the territory it captured in the Six Day War.
But the Palestinians and Israel’s other detractors don’t see it that way. And Resolution 2334 has just given them a major boost.
Most worrying is that Palestinian groups see it as approval for their violent struggle (read: campaign of terror) against those Jews who dare defy the international community by settling in their biblical heartland.
This was demonstrated by none other than Fatah, the political movement of “moderate” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
Fatah boasts many violent logos and political cartoons. One depicts the entire Land of Israel colored as a Palestinian flag and being used to stab the word “settlement.” Following the passing of Resolution 2334, Fatah reissued that picture, adding the words “Thank You” above a list of the 14 nations that voted in favor (the US, which abstained in the vote, was left out).
“Fatah is saying more Israelis will pay with their lives as a result of the UN resolution,” explained Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli NGO that monitors and analyzes local Arab media.
Perhaps that was Obama’s intention. Perhaps it wasn’t. But either way, it once again demonstrates that the “wisdom of this world” (1 Cor. 3:19) cannot undo God’s plans. It can only lead to more suffering.
The Hebrews should definitely not give up the West Bank. Even with the West Bank, they still do not have all the land that the Lord Gave Abraham in Genesis, We are watching Prophesy coming true right before our eyes. Are you ready for the Rapture? It will come like a thief in the night. When? No one knows. Will it be the second coming? NO!. In the second coming Jesus’s feet touch he Mount of Olives and it splits open.In the Rapture, the description is he comes like a thief in the night, like lighting traveling from the East to the West. The graves open first and he dead are bought to life, those who had accepted Jesus as their Savior by faith, not works, then he living who have accepted Jesus by faith, not works are taken. These are the Saints, the worshipers of the Lord Jesus by faith. These Saints are his church, his body, and when he comes in the second coming, These Saints are with him. All dressed in White. With out the Rapture, these Saints would not be with him. It is all in the scriptures in Corinthians, Ephesians and Revelation. Also Thessalonians. read it your self like I did.
Unfortunately many well meaning Christian organizations, such as the Spafford Children’s Center in the Arab Quarter of the Old City, have bought into the “Palestinian lie” hook, line, and sinker. On a recent visit that my wife and I had to the center, we noticed in the art class one of the students had his work proudly displayed on the wall — a map of Israel (including the West Bank and Gaza) entirely colored with the “Palestinian” flag. The Arabs do not want to live in peace along side the Jews — they want the Jews annihilated. And this is the message that many Christian organizations continue to support — whether overtly or tacitly — the result is the same. Very sad.
