Net News: “UN experts questioned Israeli officials on Monday over alleged rights abuses ranging from the demolition of Palestinian houses to mistreatment of detainees and limited Palestinian access to water.

Israel’s delegation defended its record before the United Nations Human Rights Committee, which examined respect for civil and political rights in Israel, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. Each UN member state is reviewed every four years.”

Opinion: Maybe the UN experts should ask Hamas officials why over 11,000 rockets have been fired into Israel with the intent to kill citizens since the Gaza Strip was handed to the Palestinians in exchange for peace.

UNSC_2014-10-14_REThe Jerusalem Post: “The United Nations, in an annual exercise, voted in five countries last week to begin serving two-year stints on the Security Council, beginning on January 1. Although there was some good news for Israel in the results, most of it was bad.

The good news is that the Turkey of Israel-bashing President Recep Tayyip Erdogan failed in its bid for one of the five rotating, non-permanent seats, losing in balloting to Spain. The bad news is that of the five new members, two of them – Venezuela and Malaysia – do not even have diplomatic relations with Israel.

What that means is that when the members of the new council take their seats in January for a year in which Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is likely to make the Israeli-Palestinian conflict a major agenda item on the council’s schedule.”

Opinion: Let’s recap October 2014, so far:

  1. October 3: Sweden broke with most of the EU states and officially recognized the state of Palestine
  2. October 8: The EU announced plans to impose crippling economic and cultural sanctions on Israel if the Jewish state does not agree to unilaterally withdraw behind the 1949 Armistice lines.
  3. October 20: EU announces it is adding Venezuela and Malaysia – which do not have diplomatic relations with Israel.

The latest “Israeli outrage” to which the EU and others, including US President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, are taking such offense is the announcement by the Israel Lands Authority to solicit private sector tenders for the construction of roughly 2600 apartment units slated to be built in Jerusalem’s burgeoning Givat Hamatos neighborhood. In fact, there is nothing at all new in these plans, which have long been a part of Jerusalem’s municipal development plan and were first announced more than three years ago.

That Israel should stop building homes to accommodate the natural growth of its population means that when a Jewish baby is born, another Jew has to leave. Zero population growth is being demanded.

The EU also demands Israel return to the 1949 Armistice lines as a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The 1949 Armistice lines gave what is today called ‘occupied Palestinian territory’ (Judea and Samaria- West Bank) to Jordan. Jerusalem was divided into Jordanian East Jerusalem and Israeli West Jerusalem.

The Gaza Strip was, according to the agreed-on 1949 Armistice lines, given to Egypt. Jordanians settled in their territory and Egypt sent settlers into theirs to establish possession. There was no territory under dispute that was ‘occupied’ in any meaningful sense.

In the war of 1967, Israel recaptured Judea and Samaria (West Bank) as well as the Gaza Strip.

Israel, according to the US and EU, is to give those lands to the Palestinians which was never theirs to begin with.

You would think that since the EU is suffering from one economic crisis after another, they would connect the dots on Genesis 12:3 and Joel 3:1-2.

We won’t hold our breath.

YNet News: “Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas suggested Jews should be banned from a holy site revered by both Jews and Muslims after hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza participated in a Hamas-organized rally Friday over Jerusalem’s flashpoint al-Aqsa mosque, the scene of recurring clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinians in recent days.”

Opinion: The blessing given to Jacob, whom God renamed Israel, is the root of Esau’s (Abbas) hatred today:

To Jacob: “May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness—an abundance of grain and new wine. May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed” Genesis 27:28-29

To Esau: “Your dwelling will be away from the earth’s richness, away from the dew of heaven above. You will live by the sword and you will serve your brother. But when you grow restless, you will throw his yoke from off your neck” Genesis 27:39-40.

Esau’s hatred festered over the blessing:

“Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob” Genesis 27:41.

Isaiah 60:14 speaks to the future fulfillment of Jacob and and Esau’s feud through their descendants:

“The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you; all who despise you will bow down at your feet and will call you the City of the LordZion of the Holy One of Israel.”

Pentagon Pushes Climate Hysteria to Justify Globalism, Waste

The New American: “After being ridiculed for squandering taxpayer funds on a 2003 “climate” report that, despite being widely hyped in the establishment press, got literally everything wrong, Obama’s cadres of “global-warming” alarmists at the Pentagon are at it again. In a report released this week, Obama’s Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel parroted a wide range

We’ll Tell You How Dangerous Ebola Is After the Election

Front Page Mag: “This summer, the U.S. government imposed a travel ban on Israel simply to pressure Prime Minister Netanyahu into accepting a ceasefire agreement. But we can’t put a travel restriction on countries where a contagious disease is raging. It’s becoming increasingly clear this is just another platform for Obama to demonstrate that we

Is Turkey Going Pakistan's Way?

Stratrisks: “But what is happening in Turkey is uncannily similar to what happened in Pakistan. Turkey acted as a conduit to the FSA as much as Pakistan did to the Mujahedeen. The FSA gradually fragmented and spawned the vicious ISIS just like the Mujahedeen became the Taliban. Admittedly Taliban is not as virulent as the
