U.S. seeks end to U.N. rights council’s ‘obsession’ with Israel

editor 2 March 2017

By Stephanie Nebehay.. U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration is reviewing its participation in the U.N. Human Rights Council, seeking reform of its agenda and an end to its “obsession with Israel”, a senior U.S. official said on Wednesday (March 1, 2017). Washington has long argued that the Geneva forum unfairly focuses on Israel’s alleged violations of human rights, including war crimes against Palestinian civilians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

PEACE and SAFETY for ISRAEL

editor 9 February 2017

By David Sudlow.. God is faithful to all His covenant promises to Israel, the Church and His Creation. We look and pray for those promises and are quickened with faith, hope, and love. Great days are ahead in the fulfilling of the Gospel of the Kingdom. We can see God’s great covenant promises coming to pass for His firstborn Israel; therefore we are assured that our redemption is certain—the Lord’s coming is very near. “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thess. 5: 2-3. (more…)

Top 10 Reasons Not to Go to Paris

editor 23 January 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. Paris is supposed to be an amazing city. I was there once. For 24 hours. It wasn’t great. The people were really nasty – from the snotty municipal worker who refused to give me directions because my French wasn’t accented properly, to the inconsiderate cleaner at the airport who carefully smashed her broom into garbage cans near benches where people were sleeping, but quietly circled the cans where the benches were empty (I kid you not…we watched this for 15 minutes till we realized and confirmed the pattern). Maybe they just don’t like tourists. Maybe they don’t like Americans. Or maybe they just don’t like Jews. Who knows? (more…)

The UN Declares War on Judeo-Christian Civilization

editor 18 January 2017

By Giulio Meotti.. How is it that Western jurisprudence, created after the Second World War to prevent more crimes against humanity, is now being used to perpetuate more crimes and against democracies? It is a dreadful manipulation to try erase all Jewish and Christian history, to make believe that all the world was originally and forever only Islamic. That is what a jihad looks like. It is not just orange jumpsuits, beheadings and slavery. If one can erase and rewrite history, one can redirect the future. If Palestinian men beat their wives, it’s Israel’s fault, argued UN expert Dubravka Simonovic with a straight face. (more…)

Security First

editor 12 January 2017

By Eli E. Hertz.. In the aftermath of the 1967 Six-Day War, after three Arab armies converged on Israel’s nightmarish borders, even the United Nations was forced to recognize that Israel’s pre-1967 Six-Day War borders invited repeated aggression. Thus, UN Resolution 242 – which formed the conceptual foundation for a peace settlement — declares that all states in the region should be guaranteed “safe and secure borders.” (more…)

Security Council resolution on Israel and Palestine will just make the standoff worse

editor 10 January 2017

By Peter Wertheim and Alex Ryvchin.. In his last address to the United Nations Security Council on December 16, 2016, outgoing Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon recognised that the UN is biased against Israel.  “Decades of political manoeuvrings have created a disproportionate volume of resolutions, reports and conferences criticising Israel,” Ban said. “In many cases, rather than helping the Palestinian cause, this reality has hampered the ability of the UN to fulfil its role effectively.” (more…)

WJC welcomes Ban Ki-moon’s ‘long-awaited’ admission of bias of Israel at UN, urges member bodies to internalise message

editor 22 December 2016

By J-Wire.. World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder has welcomed outgoing United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s “long-awaited and impactful” recognition of the UN’s ongoing disproportionate stance on Israel and his demand that Hamas once and for all renounce the use of violence and recognise the right of Israel to exist. “In the nearly 10 years that he has been in office, Ban Ki-moon has vigilantly supported a two-state solution for Israelis and Palestinians, a shared sentiment that we encourage and respect.

The UN’s Palestine Language

editor 3 December 2016

By A.J. Caschetta.. For decades, UN agencies have slandered the Jewish state, most recently with the April 2016 accusation that it has been “planting Jewish fake graves” in Palestinian territory, and with UNESCO declaring last year (2015) that the ancient Jewish Biblical sites Rachel’s Tomb and the Cave of the Patriarchs are actually Muslim holy sites, and last month (October 2016) that the Temple Mount, where the Jewish Temples were destroyed in 587 BCE and 70 CE, is an Islamic site with no connection to Judaism.
