JPost: “Congressmen from both parties are issuing support for direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians and urging the Obama administration to refrain from taking action at the United Nations over the decades-old conflict.
A “sense of” resolution adopted by the House of Representatives on Tuesday night put a majority of members on record in favor of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations that lead “to a sustainable two-state solution,” and against efforts at the UN Security Council that would “impose a solution” on the parties.”
Opinion: This is wrong on so many levels.
First: The two-state solution that has Israel giving up the West Bank (Judea, Samaria), Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount, and a Jew-free corridor connecting Judea with Gaza, would cut the tiny nation in half making it indefensible from attack and forever putting away the prophesied Third Temple.
Second: Whatever Obama does at the UN can be undone by incoming president Donald Trump who along with his party have removed the two-state solution from their platform.
Third: The land of Israel is God’s land (Joel 3:1-2) and the only people that are supposed to inhabit that land are Abraham and his descendants after him (Genesis 17:7-8).
Any move by Obama to join the French peace plan “Two States For Two Peoples” will further obliterate what is left of his legacy.
