JPost: The United States plans to seek both the normalization of the Jewish state with its Arab neighbors and a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, US President Joe Biden told the United Nations on Tuesday.
“Israel’s greater normalization and economic connection with its neighbors delivering positive and particle impacts even as we continue to work tirelessly for just and lasting peace, for Israelis and Palestinians, two states for two peoples,” he said.
He focused on the importance of regional cooperation as a blue-print to solve global crises and conflict, including in the Middle East.
He referenced specifically the new energy corridor the US announced that the US would link Europe to India through the Middle East, touching Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Read More …
Opinion: There you go again Mr. President….
Israel was divided before it was even a state.
Britain signed the Balfour Declaration that committed Britain to establish a national home for the Jewish people.
World War I ended, the Ottoman Empire collapsed, and the Middle East was to be divided up.
1. League of Nations awarded Britain mandates over Transjordan, Palestine, and Iraq.
2. League of Nations awarded France mandates over Syria and Lebanon.
3. Britain awarded the entire land of Palestine to Israel with no territorial restrictions.
4. Israel was granted both sides of the Jordan River, totaling
43,075 square miles. A few months later, Britain, under pressure, altered the Balfour Declaration and took back 32,460 square miles, or 78 percent of the original land grant.
5. That land was then given to establish Transjordan (modern-day Jordan) for the Arab peoples, leaving approximately 9,500 square miles for Israel.
By the time of Israel’s statehood on May 14, 1948 Israel’s land had shrunk to 5500 square miles of which 75% was desert.
Britain would pay a big price for dividing the land.
“I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:2
In accordance with Genesis 12:3, the mighty British Empire began a fall to a shell of it’s former glory.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Today, Joe Biden did the same thing to the United States.
