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.”
Arutz Sheva: “A new European Union (EU) report says that Jerusalem is at a “boiling point” and recommends sanctions against Israel over the “polarization” in the capital.
The report, obtained by the British Guardian on Friday, says that Jerusalem has reached a dangerous boiling point of “polarization and violence” not seen since the end of the second intifada in 2005.
The report calls for tougher European sanctions against Israel over its “continued settlement construction in the city”, which it claims is exacerbating recent conflict.”
Opinion: Sometimes the verse jumps right on the page:
“… Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled”
The Times Of Israel: “Netanyahu’s campaign rhetoric — his statements in the days leading up to the election against a two-state solution and his election day comments on Arab voters — particularly angered the administration, prompting officials to say they would examine its future steps. On Netanyahu’s personal Facebook account on Tuesday, the prime minister warned Jewish citizens in[...]
The McClatchy Report: “UK Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted his congrats to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his victory Tuesday. So did Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. And Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who said “ Israel has no greater friend than Canada.” But not U.S. President Barack Obama. Obama’s delay led some to[...]
Haaretz: “A Channel 10 poll published on Friday, just three days before next week’s Knesset election, has given only 20 seats to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party – the lowest the party has polled since the leadup to the vote.

The Times Of Israel: In the video, Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam, 20, was seen kneeling in an orange jumpsuit before an armed man and a teenage boy.
