Arutz Sheva: The World Health Organization (WHO) called for an investigation into alleged abuses of “mental, physical and environmental health” rights by Israel, the only country singled out during the U.N. agency’s annual assembly in Geneva.

The motion was co-sponsored by the Arab Group of States and the Palestinian delegation, and it commissioned a WHO delegation to investigate and report on “the health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory” and “the occupied Syrian Golan.”

France, Germany and the United Kingdom were among the 107 countries that voted for the proposal. Eight countries – the United States, Canada, Australia, Paraguay, Guatemala, Micronesia and Papua New Guinea – voted against the resolution.

Opinion: Since its creation in 2006, the UNHRC  has issued more resolutions condemning Israel than on the rest of the world combined.

In the years 1947 to 1989, the General Assembly passed a total of 690 resolutions (full or partial). Of these, 429 were against the Israeli position while only 56 were against Arab positions.

Israel has been the subject of aggressive wars in 1948, 1967 and 1973 and the victim of countless terrorist attacks; the Security Council and the General Assembly have never once censured its assailants.

Israel has never been invited to sit on the UNHRC. Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Pakistan have.

The terror group Hamas spends $140,000,000 per year building attack tunnels, while the Palestinian territory decays from raw sewage:

Breaking Israel News: “Egypt is reportedly moving forward with plans to hold a trilateral summit in an effort to forge an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

An Israeli delegation arrived in Cairo on Sunday on behalf of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in order to arrange a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, the Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported.

The delegation is reportedly led by Aviva Raz Shechter, the director general of the Foreign Ministry’s Middle East Division, as well as other high-ranking officials.”

Opinion: Like dueling banjos, the French and Egyptians have a plan to solve a problem that was already solved in 1946 when Jordan became a state.

The land for Jordan was taken from the original 1917 land grant to establish a home for the Jewish people. Winston Churchill had pity on the Arab peoples after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and made the grave mistake of creating them a state of their own.

There were 5-700,000 Arab peoples trapped in Israel after the war of independence. King Hussein of Jordan created camps for those he allowed to return and refused citizenship to all but a few refugees.

The rest of the Arab nations joined in and refused the refugees citizenship, and a plan was hatched to demand yet another Arab state, inside Israel, in an effort to push the Jewish state into the sea.

It is Esau wanting to kill Jacob all over again (Genesis 27:41).

After the dust settled, the Arab nations got 6,700,000 square miles of land while Israel got 5560 square miles. Not bad, since it was the Arabs who chose to align with the losing side (Germany) in World War I.

But nothing is ever enough for Esau. When the world bows at his feet again, he will then demand the right of return of  up 5 -13 million Jordanian and Egyptian refugees that were created for this very purpose.

JPost: Abdullah addressed his subjects to mark the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Hashemite monarchy. A text of his remarks is below.

“Jordan is celebrating its 70th Independence Day, along with the centennial of the Great Arab Revolt and Arab renaissance. These historical occasions have planted and nourished the seeds of our homeland, with sacrifice, bravery and a deep sense of belonging. They are the source of our values, principles and the foundations of our policies. We stand together to commemorate the events that shaped our history and to honour the leaders, and the men and women, who set the course that lit our paths towards the future.

The cause that the Great Arab Revolt defended, and the one that is our foremost priority, is the Arab identity of Palestine.”

Opinion: And Jordan is Israel’s strongest partner in the Middle East.

August 2, 1914 just prior to WWI, the Ottoman–German Alliance was formed and ratified  shortly following the outbreak of World War I.

November 2, 2017, the Balfour Declaration acknowledged the establishment of a Jewish home in Palestine.

World War I began on July 28, 1914 and ended on November 11, 1918. The Ottoman-German Alliance collapsed and with it the entire Ottoman empire.

The Arab world with the help of liberal progressive politicians has been trying to re-write history ever since.

One of Satan’s most clever achievements.

The British awarded Palestine to the Jewish people. By the time Israel received her independence on May 14, 1948, the land grant had shrunk from 43,075 square miles (both sides of the Jordan river) to 5,560 square miles, 75% of which was desert.

That land reduction, authorized by Churchill, was used to carve out Trans Jordan (east of the Jordan) as a home for the Arab peoples, placing Britain in violation of the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12:3); the world’s biggest empire in history would begin to decline.

The world is willfully ignoring facts and pandering to the Arab squeaky wheel again. As late as 1981 King Hussein of Jordan, father of  king Abdullah II,  was widely quoted as saying “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.”

The two state solution has been in place since 1948.

The prophet Zechariah, from his perch in the 6th century BC, saw what would happen at the time of the end. Zechariah knew that Israel’s eternal enemy, Edom, would never give up the desire to covet the promised land, and prophesied what would happen to all those who tried:

“And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

The king of Jordan better celebrate while he can.
