OBAMA’S U.N. VETO TURNS JERUSALEM AND ITS WAILING WALL INTO AN ‘ILLEGAL SETTLEMENT, STOPPING TRUMP’S PLAN TO MAKE JERUSALEM ISRAEL’S CAPITAL
Obama is trying to checkmate Trump when it comes to Jerusalem. While Trump promises to make Jerusalem Israel’s capital and move U.S. embassy to the holy city, Obama, through recent U.N. veto, is now making that impossible.
What was Obama’s United Nations veto impact to Jerusalem?
The resolution, UN Security Council Resolution 2334, declares the Israeli presence across the 1967 boundary — i.e. the 1949 armistice lines in Israel’s War of Independence — to be illegal. That means that the Old City of Jerusalem, and the holiest sites of Jerusalem, are illegally occupied, in the eyes of the UN — even though Jews have been living in those places for thousands of years. Islam is a 1,400-year-old religion founded by Muhammad from Saudi Arabia and was spread by Mohamads’s generals through occupation and military conquests.
As Breitbart.com reported:
The Western Wall is now officially an illegal “settlement,” according to an anti-Israel UN Security Council resolution passed last Friday with the acquiescence of the Obama administration, which abstained instead of exercising its traditional veto. That is because the Wall is in the Old City of Jerusalem, which Jews have inhabited for thousands of years but which was under Jordanian control from 1948 to 1967 after Arab soldiers ousted the population of the Jewish Quarter and destroyed much of it.
The resolution, UN Security Council Resolution 2334, rejects 50 years of precedent, in that it considers all the territory conquered by Israel in a defensive war in 1967 to be not only occupied, but illegal.
Obama is the most anti-Israel U.S. president in history.
In May 2011 Barack Obama urged Israel to hand over half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, the tomb of Jesus Christ, and the Via Dolorosa to radical Islamic organizations.
As Breitbart.com reported, a defiant Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu observed the second night of the Jewish holiday of Chanukah on Sunday evening by lighting the candles at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, Judaism’s holiest existing site.
Netanyahu said (via the Prime Minister’s Office):
I did not plan to be here this evening but in light of the UN resolution I thought that there was no better place to light the second Chanukah candle than the Western Wall. According to the UN resolution, the Maccabees did not liberate Jerusalem, they occupied Palestinian territory. According to the UN resolution, the villages that they started out from in the Modi’in area, those villages and that area were ‘occupied Palestinian territory’.
Of course the Palestinians arrived much later. We were in these places. We will return to these places and I ask those same countries that wish us a Happy Chanukah how they could vote for a UN resolution which says that this place, in which we are now celebrating Chanukah, is occupied territory.
The Western Wall is not occupied. The Jewish Quarter is not occupied. The other places are not occupied either. Therefore, we do not accept, nor can we accept, this resolution. We are certain of our future just as we are certain of our past. And here I would like to light Chanukah candles on behalf of the Glory of Israel. Happy Chanukah.
