On Tuesday (Sept 13),
representatives of 193 countries came together for the opening of the 66th
session of the United Nations General Assembly, in Manhattan, NY. Of the
168 items on their agenda, one is guaranteed to dominate the 15-day event:
Item #36 –
question of Palestine.”
When that number comes up on
September 20, the nations will make a decision that secure their place in
the Valley of Jehoshaphat. For during the course of the proceedings, each
one will be called upon to vote for, or against, recognizing a Palestinian
The United Nations will vote on
ripping the Biblical heartland “legally” out of the hands of the Jewish
people and giving it the Muslim Arabs – the vast majority of whom have been
raised on a rich diet of hate against Israel.
Recognizing a Palestinian state means voting for the “permanent” division of
The motivation behind a
pro-Palestinian resolution is hardly a heartfelt desire to give the “poor
Palestinians” a state of their own. Rather it is a rabid anti-Semitism; a
hatred of Israel and a desire to see her destroyed, and /or a hatred of God
and rejection of His Word.
God’s warning is very clear: “For
behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of
Judah and Jerusalem, 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
They have divided up My land.”
Officials in Jerusalem believe the
“Palestinians” will secure an automatic majority due to the guaranteed
support of the 116 “non-aligned” states,” which tend to vote as a bloc and
promote joint interests. With just 12 more “yes” votes, “Palestine” will
secure a two-thirds majority.
The universal recognition of “Palestine” as a state in its own right will be
an indictment of the Jewish people; it will be the world’s rejection and
dismissal of Israel’s claims to its God-given inheritance; and it will be an
accusation that the Jews have usurped another people’s land.
Despite having personally flown to
various countries in recent months, appealing to leaders to reject the
unilateral Palestinian move, PM Benjamin Netanyahu now appears to be bracing
for what looks like the inevitable outcome.
Israel hopes that a good number of
states will refuse to endorse the unilateral Palestinian move and thus
render the UN decision illegitimate. EU foreign affairs chief, Catherine
Ashton has the EU supports a Palestinian state by negotiations – not
unilaterally. That’s also the position of the US.
Officials in Brussels have worked to
establish a united front of EU states that would vote against the motion, or
at least the abstain from voting. But Europe is divided. It seems
any, nations will vote “no.” More are likely to abstain.

Israel stands almost alone on the
world stage, but the judgment on this anti-Covenant event has already been
determined and will soon come to pass. The United Nations will bring
judgment on itself. It was foreseen thousands of years ago by the prophet
of Israel who declared:
a day of vengeance for the controversy of Zion.”
And the prophet Joel describes the
(the valley on the east of
Jerusalem) as the winepress of His wrath into which He will gather the
“Proclaim this among the nations: ‘Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men,
let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares
into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, “I am
strong.” ‘Assemble and come, all you nations, and gather together all
around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O YHWH. Let the nations be
wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to
judge all the surrounding nations.
in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; for the winepress is
full, the vats overflow — for their wickedness is great. Multitudes,
multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of YHWH is near in the
valley of decision.’ The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will
diminish their brightness. YHWH also will roar from Zion, and utter His
voice from Jerusalem. The heavens and earth will shake; but
be a shelter for His people,
and the strength of the
children of Israel.” (Joel 3: 1-2, 9-16)

Sept 12/11. Several Palestinian
factions voiced differing opinions on the Palestinian statehood bid at the
UN, with both Hamas and Islamic Jihad representatives distancing themselves
from the planned vote. Hamas officials said the Palestinian Authority's push
to achieve recognition in the UN has nothing to do with Palestinians in the
THE PALESTINIAN BID IS AT PRESENT CONFUSED
at this late stage, a US campaign to avert the UN vote, is being backed by
Saudi Arabia, Europe and Egypt. And Mahmoud Abbas is evidently having second
thoughts, and may not appeal to the Security Council, but may settle only
with the General Assembly. Or he may cancel the bid, under the pressures
bearing down on him. Already the Palestinian Authority is running short of
money, as the Arab financial aid has fallen far shorter than promised. (The
Arab nations know full well that the Palestinian Authority is highly corrupt
as it was under Arafat, and they are unwilling to continue to feed that

certainly with the Palestinians so divided, a viable state is a vain wish.
sources report that the US President has refused to talk to Abbas for the
past eight months owing to his refusal to join Israel for direct peace
now with the US threatening to cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority if
the UN bid goes ahead, it is not going to be all joy for Abbas and Co, even
if the General Assembly votes overwhelmingly for a Palestinian state.
