Breaking Israel News: ““The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against His anointed.” (Psalm 2:2)
In Geneva, world powers gathered to condemn Israel’s actions in Judea and Samaria; in Luxembourg, the EU Court of Justice removed Hamas from its terror blacklist; and back in the United States, a draft resolution was introduced at the United Nations demanding an Israeli withdrawal from lands wanted for a Palestinian State by 2017.
Geneva hosted a one-day conference for the signatories to the Geneva Conventions which govern the rules of war and military occupation. 126 of the 196 parties attended Wednesday’s gathering, which adopted a declaration condemning Israel’s activities in Judea and Samaria. The 10-point declaration seeks to “emphasize that all serious violations of international humanitarian law must be investigated and that all those responsible should be brought to justice,” reported The Times of Israel.
The declaration demands that the Geneva Conventions be applied by Israel in conflict zones between Israel and the Palestinians, particularly by not building settlements in Judea and Samaria, which the Palestinians want for their own country.”
Opinion: Behold Amalek.
Mahmoud Abbas is winning world opinion while the nations rethink whether or not Hamas is a terror organization. I cannot imagine a more prophetic scenario leading to Psalm 83.
That Abbas has succeeded in convincing the nations that the Palestinian Authority is moderate despite countless terror attacks on innocent civilians is reminiscent of his former boss Yasser Arafat.
In our book, Antichrist: The Search for Amalek, we call Arafat Antichrist #10:
Excerpt: “The Mainstream Press Love Affair: Tom Gross, writing for the National Review, in November 2004 summed up the mystery of the Left’s love affair with Arafat:
Arab leaders long ago stopped liking or respecting Yasser Arafat, or indeed believing a word he said. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak once referred to him, in the presence of Secretary of State Warren Christopher, as “a son of a dog.” The Syrian defense minister called Arafat the “son of sixty-thousand whores.”
Yet until the very end, some prominent Western journalists never stopped heaping praise on him, or covering up for his countless crimes and misdeeds. It didn’t matter how many Jews, Arabs, and others died on his orders, or how many times he let down his own people, or stole from them. For these journalists, as well as for many European governments, he remained a worthy Nobel peace-prize winner and the “sole legiti- mate representative” of the Palestinian people.
To judge by some of the reporting as he lay on his deathbed in Paris—the hushed tone of the television newsreaders, the flattering touched-up portrait photos on the cover of the London Times—Arafat was a figure who deserved to be deeply revered, a kind of ailing pope.”
