Washington Free Beacon: “Jeb Bush foreign policy adviser James Baker warned that Israel could lose its “democratic character” if it continues to “occupy Arab lands” in a carefully worded keynote address at the J Street conference on Monday evening.
“It seems to me Israel’s future absent a two-state solution could be very difficult at best,” said Baker at the J Street gala. “I fear Israel risks losing either its Jewish character or its democratic character as long as it occupies those Arab lands.”
Opinion: Biblically and historically ignorant politicians from both parties are coming out of the woodwork. And should Jeb Bush become the next president, expect more of the same.
Jewish Virtual Library: “The Palestinians left their homes in 1947-48 for a variety of reasons. Thousands of wealthy Arabs left in anticipation of a war, thousands more responded to Arab leaders’ calls to get out of the way of the advancing armies, a handful were expelled, but most simply fled to avoid being caught in the cross fire of a battle. Had the Arabs accepted the 1947 UN resolution, not a single Palestinian would have become a refugee and an independent Arab state would now exist beside Israel.
The beginning of the Arab exodus can be traced to the weeks immediately following the announcement of the UN partition resolution. The first to leave were roughly 30,000 wealthy Arabs who anticipated the upcoming war and fled to neighboring Arab countries to await its end. Less affluent Arabs from the mixed cities of Palestine moved to all-Arab towns to stay with relatives or friends.
All of those who left fully anticipated being able to return to their homes after an early Arab victory, as Palestinian nationalist Aref el-Aref explained in his history of the 1948 war.”
From our book Antichrist: The Search For Amalek: “Israel was reborn on May 14, 1948 and was attacked on the same day by Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. After the war Egypt controlled more than 200,000 inhabitants but refused to allow the Palestinians into Egypt. Today, no arab nation will grant citizenship to Palestinians.”
Obadiah 1:15 is a warning to the nations:
“The day of the Lord is near for all nations. As you have done (to Israel), it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head.”
James Baker better not forget to duck.
The Times Of Israel: “WASHINGTON — White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough called for the end of Israel’s “50-year occupation” and doubled down on the Obama administration’s critique of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in a warmly received speech to the lobbying group J Street in Washington Monday.
“No matter who leads Israel, America’s commitment to Israel’s security will never waiver,” McDonough said.
At the same time, McDonough said later, “an occupation that has lasted for 50 years must end,” referring to Israel’s 48-year hold on the West Bank.
Opinion: J Street is a secular, liberal Jewish-American lobbying group that advocates a two state solution.
Translation: land for peace.
Occupation, as defined by progressive left liberals, refers to the 1967 ‘lines’. On May 19, 2011 President Obama called for Israel to return to the ’67 borders.
In the 1967 war, Israel captured the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula. Since then, Israel (under pressure) has given back the Sinai, Gaza, part of the West Bank and East Jerusalem in exchange for peace that never came.
But nothing is ever enough for the Palestinians, because the goal is not a two state solution, but a state free of Jews. A two state plan offered in 1947 was rejected by the Palestinians. It would have created an Arab state in Israel, the only nation in the ME that offered citizenship to them.
From WWI and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire to May 14, 1948, Israel’s land grant shrank from 43,075 square miles to 5560 square miles leaving the Arab people 6,700,000 square miles.
But even that is not enough for either the Palestinians – or the White House:
Zephaniah 2:1-2 prophesied to the future inhabitants of Judea (West Bank):
“Gather together, gather yourselves together, you shameful nation, before the decree takes effect and that day passes like windblown chaff, before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you, before the day of the Lord’s wrath comes upon you.”
