Obama Administration Attacks Israel at the UN

{A Tip 'O the Kippa to Doodad.}


WASHINGTON – The US, Britain and Germany leveled harsh criticism at Israel's settlement construction policy on Tuesday.

During a Security Council session, US Ambassador Susan Rice urged Israel to halt all settlement construction in the West Bank and work to quell settler violence against Palestinians. She also expressed concern over the humanitarian situation in Gaza...

British Ambassador to the UN Mark Grant accused Israel of employing violence in the territories and called on the Jewish state to halt all settlement construction, including in east Jerusalem.

Germany's UN ambassador, Peter Wittig, said Israel was attempting to detach east Jerusalem from the West Bank, a move he claimed would make the establishment of a Palestinian state impossible.

All this racist yammering about Jews building housing for themselves in Jewish neighborhoods of Judea is a disgrace. This is Obama's doing. By harping on where Jews may, or may not, be allowed to live on that land Obama has poisoned the well entirely.  No other US president has undermined the potential for a negotiated conclusion of hostilities by imposing "total settlement freeze" as a precondition for negotiations.  That is pure Obama.

But just because Jews are living on historically Jewish land in what Jordan dubbed "the West Bank" it doesn't mean that Palestinian dictator Mahmoud Abbas cannot sit down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and draw a line on a map. Thankfully the Israelis, themselves, do not seem to be suffering from the kind of racist delusions that are motivating the diplomatic corps in the United States, Germany, and Great Britain, as validated by the American president.

In his response to the criticism, Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor told the Security Council, "The primary obstacle to peace is not settlements. The primary obstacle to peace is the so-called 'claim (right) of return.' Let me repeat that: the major hurdle to peace is the Palestinian’s insistence on the so-called 'claim of return.'"

"You will never hear Palestinian leaders say 'two states for two peoples'. If you ever hear them say 'two states for two peoples', please phone my office immediately. Call me 'collect' in the event of such an unprecedented occurrence," he said.

"You won’t hear them say 'two states for two peoples' because today the Palestinian leadership is calling for an independent Palestinian state, but insists that its people return to the Jewish state. This would mean the destruction of Israel.

It is, in my opinion, long past time for Israel to stop dragging its feet and declare its final eastern borders and remove the IDF behind those borders. Furthermore, the Palestinians have forfeited any claims on Jerusalem by refusing to accept a state for themselves in peace next to Israel. That being the case, Israel should make it clear to the world that the Jews will not accept the division of our ancient capital city.

Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish state.

If the Palestinians cannot bring themselves to accept a Jewish country on the land where Jews come from then they can have lovely Ramallah as their capital.



  1. Correction:

    ..."The OIC (the recently renamed Organization of Islamic Cooperation
    (which, until earlier this year, was named Organization of the Islamic Conference)"...

  2. Your complete hatred and racist attitudes towards the Palestinians is just amazing.   Why just admit that you want them driven off all the land they now control no matter how it is done.  

  3. Off-topic (in a specific sense; but on-topic in a general sense):

    Beautiful music

    This music has made me cry. I am not an adherent of the traditional religion of the Jewish people - my people - but this is the music of my people. The pain and the good and the beauty: it has made me cry, during these times in the world.

    This is the music of my people. This is the music of my ancestors. We have endured. We are a people of patient endurance.


    "The non-doing of any evil,
    the performance of what's skillful,
    the purification of one's own mind:
    this is the teaching
    of the Awakened.

    "Patient endurance:
    the foremost austerity.
    the foremost,
    so say the Awakened.
    He who injures another
    is no contemplative.
    He who mistreats another,
    no monk.

    "Not disparaging,
    not injuring,
    restraint in line with the Patimokkha,
    moderation in food,
    dwelling in seclusion,
    commitment to the heightened mind:
    this is the teaching
    of the Awakened."

  6. Correction:

    I listed as there being only one singer, Chaim Israel (Hayim Yisrael (חיים ישראל)), in the first song that I listed (נתי לוי חיים ישראל - ה' שמעתי שמעך).

    However, there are, in fact, two singers, Chaim Israel (Hayim Yisrael (חיים ישראל)) and Nati Levi (נתי לוי), in the first song that I listed (נתי לוי חיים ישראל - ה' שמעתי שמעך).

  7. No one here hates Palestinians unless they are genocidal murderers. Most here favor a two state solution so your accusations are ridiculous.

  8. This is how twisted I-P discourse has become on the left.

    If I write a piece saying that Jews should be allowed to live in Judea without international harassment I get accused of wanting to boot Palestinians.

    How fucked up is that?
