In the last few days there has been a very important development regarding Israel’s right to build settlements. The following articles will help explain the details, then scroll down for links to what I have posted concerning the consequences of attempts to divide the land that God gave as an eternal possession to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob — a.k.a. ISRAEL. (NOTE: My highlights in red.)
Obama’s Betrayal of Israel s a Black Day for American Diplomacy
It is Islamist-leftist dogma that Israel’s millennia of attachment to its homeland count for nothing.
Adding a final shameful chapter to a foreign-policy record that already runneth over with them, Barack Obama on Friday abandoned America’s commitment to Israel’s security, and to the vindication of democracy over sharia-supremacist aggression. In an act of cowardly venom, the president had the United States abstain from — and thereby effectively enact — a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemns Israeli settlement activity. At least, that’s what the resolution ostensibly does. The reality is much more than that. The resolution undertakes to render our ally indefensible.
It was a black day in modern American diplomatic history, a flurry of sinister wheeling and dealing while the nation — exhausted by the election, anticipating a weekend of Christmas and Hanukkah celebration — was looking the other way. To his great credit, Donald Trump was not. The president-elect asserted himself on Israel’s behalf, backing up his campaign promise that “America First” meant restoration of America’s reputation as a dependable friend and an enemy not to be trifled with. Under the pressure he generated, Egypt backed down, withdrawing its sponsorship of the resolution.
But such is the disdain in which Israel is openly held after eight Obama years of empowering Islamists that four other countries — Malaysia, Venezuela, Senegal, and, of all places, New Zealand — revived the resolution, knowing they had the State Department’s backing. With the U.S. abstention, it was easily approved.
It is a disgraceful legacy of Barack Obama that his obsession over settlements and antipathy toward Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu — traits he shares with his old radical comrade, Rashid Khalidi — have made the already dim prospects for peace far more remote. At the root of the settlements controversy is the fiction that the territory at issue is “occupied Palestinian” land. In point of stubborn fact, no matter how tirelessly the vaunted “international community” evokes the scurrilous image of occupation, the territory is righteously disputed….

Jimmy Carter Urges Barack Obama to Divide the Land of Israel at the United Nations Before Jan. 20
In an absolutely stunning editorial for the New York Times, former President Jimmy Carter has publicly called for Barack Obama to divide the land of Israel at the United Nations before Inauguration Day.
While he was president, Carter negotiated peace between Israel and Egypt, and ever since that time, he has been a very strong advocate for a Palestinian state. Carter is completely convinced that a “two-state solution” will bring lasting peace to the Middle East, but now that Donald Trump has been elected, Carter knows that his dream of seeing a Palestinian state while he is still alive is rapidly slipping away. In a desperate attempt to salvage the situation, Carter is urging Barack Obama to take bold action while he still has the power to do so.
In his New York Times editorial, one of the steps Carter says Obama should take is to give formal U.S. diplomatic recognition to a Palestinian state….

Over the past few years, I have posted repeatedly about the biblical consequences of dividing God’s land. The prophet Joel spoke the words of the Lord …
1“In those days and at that time,
when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
2 I will gather all nations
and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.
There I will put them on trial
for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel,
because they scattered my people among the nations
and divided up my land.” (Joel 3:1-2)
