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.

dhs2Breitbart: “As Ebola continued to ravage communities in West Africa this summer, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a division under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced “immigration relief measures” for citizens of three countries affected by the deadly virus.

  • Change or extension of nonimmigrant status for an individual currently in the United States, even if the request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired;
  • Extension of certain grants of parole made by USCIS;
  • Expedited adjudication and approval, where possible, of requests for off-campus employment authorization for F-1 students experiencing severe economic hardship;
  • Expedited processing of immigrant petitions for immediate relatives (currently in the United States) of U.S. citizens;
  • Expedited adjudication of employment authorization applications, where appropriate; and
  • Consideration for waiver of fees associated with USCIS benefit applications.

Opinion: Oh but it doesn’t stop there, President Obama is planning to spend nearly $100 million on “family planning” and “HIV-AIDS’ programs for Kenyans. This latest plan is connected to existing U.S. tax payer funded projects.

Just think how good all that will look on his resume when the president campaigns to becomes the first president of the UN. In the Left behind series Antichrist rises from within the UN, suppose instead, it is a UN leader that welcomes him.

New York Post: “President Obama ​is expected ​to issue an executive order to put National Guard boots on the ground in Liberia to help stop the spread of Ebola, ​according to a report Thursday.

A team of eight engineers and several logistical specialists — both active-duty and reservists — are expected to be included in the first wave of soldiers being deployed to the West African nation, NBC News report​ed.

They will help locals construct 17 Ebola treatment centers that will be equipped with 100 beds apiece.”

Opinion: Isn’t it thoughtful that the President is using the US National Guard to protect Liberians, while the United States border is left wide open?

The president, it seems , is campaining to become president of the world.

Page 172, Antichrist: The Search For Amalek: “President Obama, nearing the end of eight tumultuous years, was ready for a new job, and as fate would have it, one was about to be offered to him. Ban Ki Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, was ready to announce his retirement to be effective at the end of his term on December 31, 2016.

The world was ready for new leadership, and Ban, nearing seventy-two, was exhausted. The UN vacancy, if accepted, would be a perfect fit for the internationally popular US president.”

Obama expected to send National Guard to Liberia to fight Ebola
