For the first time in U.S. history, the United States of America joined forces with Israel's enemies.
UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which was passed on Friday because of U.S. abstention, is much, much worse than even its critics realize. President-elect Donald Trump tweeted: "This is the beginning of the End," meaning Obama's deal with Iran, coupled with this latest outrage, is the beginning of the end of U.S. friendship with Israel (not to mention God).
The resolution (a direct result of U.S. actions) is not just unfair, unbalanced,and untruthful--it is unimaginably stupid. Why?
Because it demands Israel do the impossible: withdraw to its pre-1967 borders. They might as well ask Israel to commit national suicide. The pre-1967 borders make Israel too narrow to defend. Palestinian missiles (among other things) would destroy them. It also demands Israel give up Jerusalem, the very heart of their Holy Land and turn it over for the Palestinians to desecrate, something the Jewish state cannot do.
Resolution 2334 wrongly claims that the Jewish "settlements in the Palestinian territory, occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law."
This is blatantly incorrect.
International law permits states to retain territory acquired in wars inflicted upon them by aggressive enemies. Israel won that land fair and square when attacked (though grossly outnumbered) by their invading Arab neighbors in 1948 and again in 1967. Israel has improved the land by building homes, hospitals and schools for both Palestinians and Jews to live side-by-side.
Resolution 2334 ignores the fact that the Palestinians are a dysfunctional, divided, violent, undemocratic society that rewards terrorists with a monthly income and whose Charter formally calls for the destruction of the Jewish state and the murder of all Jews. It overlooks the fact that the Arab community has over 600 times the land mass as the Jews and could easily assimilate the Palestinians.
How will this affect you? The Bible says that when the nations of the world gather against Jerusalem (as happened at the UN on Friday): "It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem" (Zechariah 12:9).
Like it or not, our government has set the stage for the destruction of the nation of Israel. First, through the deal with Iran and now through UN Resolution 2334.
Even if President Trump is able to reverse the vote in the UN, he'll never be able to walk this back in the minds of the Palestinians.
Resolution 2334 gives the Palestinians everything-but-the-kitchen-sink and turns the Jews living in the land God gave them (Genesis 12:6-7; Gen. 15:18; Gen.17:7-8; Numbers 34:1-5; 2Chronicles 20:7; etc.) into criminals.
Over 200 times in Scripture God calls Himself "The God of Israel" and has declared the Jews "His Chosen People"--the apple of His eye. (And woe to those who poke it!)
We are witnessing the Last Days re-gathering of the Jews to Israel (Isaiah 43:5-6; Ezekiel 37:21; etc.) which is why they need to build housing for them.
The dividing of Jerusalem is the true story of what's happening here with no regard to Israel's security and exactly as foretold in the Bible. Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital for over 3,300 years. It is mentioned over 700 times in the Old Testament (not even once in the Koran). How dare the UN steal it from the Jews and hand it over to the Palestinians.
The Bible repeatedly warns that the nations who try this will bring God's Judgment down on their own heads.
If you think this won't affect you--think again.
"...I will judge them for harming My people, for scattering My inheritance among the nations, and for dividing up My land" (Joel 3:2).
"On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone, a burden for the world. None of the nations who try to lift it will escape unscathed" (Zechariah 12:3).A wise man once said: "The UN Security Council just targeted the only democracy in the Middle East: the State of Israel. This is a cultural genocide that is no less dangerous than terror attacks. It is based on anti-Semitic lies and creates the atmosphere not for achieving "peace", as disingenuously claimed, but for perpetual war." -- Hal Lindsey
