YNet News: Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will arrive in New York for the United Nations General Assembly and is expected to set a time limit for Israel to withdraw from the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, in exchange for a peace deal.
Abbas adviser and Deputy Secretary General of the Fatah Revolutionary Council Dr. Sabri Saidam says Israel should be the last state to talk about unilateral actions.
“Maintaining the longest occupation in modern times is a unilateral Israeli oppressive decision, so a unilateral reflection of dismay and wish to solicit UN support should be seen as a natural protest against decades of oppression,” he wrote to The Media Line in an email.
Opinion: Behold, Jacob and Esau.
The land was granted to Jacob’s grandfather Abraham, and his descendants after him, in an unconditional and forever covenant.
“And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
Esau was given no such blessing:
“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 NIV.
As Abbas gets desperate for control of Jerusalem, his henchmen are ramping up the occupation farce in hopes that the UN, the most anti-Semitic group in the world, will agree with the lie.
From 2006 through 2013, Israel has been subjected to 45 UN condemnation resolutions. No other nation in the world comes close. From 1947 to 1991, there were about 300 General Assembly resolutions against Israel. In 2012, there were 22 GA resolutions specifically against Israel, while there were only four for the rest of the world combined!
“Abba Eban once famously said: If Algeria introduced a resolution declaring that the earth was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions.”
