United Nations Special Committee on Palestine “Parted My Land"

The signing on August 31, 1947 of the reports—there were two, a “majority” and a “minority”—of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine marks a stage in the working out of the Divine Purpose. However much the people of this country are agitated by the new austerity and the problem of the dollar, however foreboding may be the sense of underlying hostility between the United States “way of life” and the Soviet “ideology,” and however perplexing the attempt to reconstitute Europe, the pivot of all the future is Palestine. To-day it is truer than ever that the bounds of the people are set according to the number of the children of Israel.² “The Lord’s portion is His people; Jacob is the lot of His inheritance. . . He kept him as the apple of His eye.” That chapter goes on to foretell God’s grievous punishments of His people for their rebellion against Him which have surely come to pass; it also looks ahead to the time when God will render vengeance to His adversaries and will be merciful to His land and to His people. The majority verdict of the United Nations Committee indicates a new illumination of the signs of the times; the decision of the United Nations General Assembly is awaited with keen interest.

Palestinian Hate: “Barbaric Monkeys, Wretched Pigs” and a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

When Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas visited the White House in May 2017, he told U.S. President Trump they are teaching peace to their children. The Palestinian Media Watch tells a much different story.

Palestinians Fed Daily Anti-Israel Propaganda

According to a 2104 report released by the Israeli government, Palestinian leaders are urging its citizens to abandon peace in favor of hate. “The main message of this incitement on a daily basis that is projected and transmitted on a daily basis is that sooner or later Israel should be eliminated,” Intelligence Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz said.

Return to Israel’s 1967 Borders National Suicide?

Some people call Israel’s 1967 partition lines “Auschwitz borders,” or the kind that could lead to another Holocaust. Others say that a move to return to those borders would be “suicide” for Israel. United Nations Resolution 242 promised Israel defenisble borders, but if Israel withdrew to the 1967 lines—parts of the nation would only be 9 miles wide—the distance is exactly the same between the John F. Kennedy and Laguardia airports in New York.Israel’s major roads as well as all planes taking off and landing from the main international airport would be in danger of rocket fire.

Proposed Peace Agreement Endangers Israel’s Borders

The Jordan Valley straddles the border between Israel and the kingdom of Jordan, running from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea. It’s about 75 miles long and nine miles wide. It forms a natural barrier between Israel and its neighbors to the east: Jordan, Syria, Iraq and Iran.  Many see it as Israel’s security belt, a geographical barrier and an indispensible military buffer. The Palestinian Authority is reportedly demanding this area as part of an agreement with Israel. But should Israel give up this strategic piece of land?

The Palestinian Digital Intifada

Leaderless Palestinian youth, inspired by instructional videos and photos on social media encouraging people to “Stab a Jew,” are thought to be behind a new wave of violence in Israel and the West Bank. Israelis believe that Palestinian Muslim youth are being radicalized by Islamic groups through online incitement campaigns. Uncoordinated and spontaneous attacks by individual young Palestinians, mostly under the age of 25, started to occur almost daily from October 2015, with assailants often using a household weapon—a knife, axe, meat cleaver, screwdriver—before being fired upon by nearby Israeli security forces. As of March 2016, the bloodshed has claimed the lives of at least 28 Israelis and 189 Palestinians, 128 of whom Israel says were assailants.

The Israel-Palestine Conflict: A Brief, Simple History

It’s true that Israel-Palestine is complicated, but it’s not that complicated. At its most basic level, the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians is over who gets what land and how that land is controlled. Yes, there are some very thorny details—how to divide the city of Jerusalem, for example—but the list of such details is not impossibly long. And while these issues can be extremely difficult to resolve, grasping them is not. Watch and learn.

Origins of the Word Palestine

Oslo Accords

The Oslo Accords are a set of agreements between the Government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO): the Oslo I Accord, signed in Washington, D.C., in 1993; and the Oslo II Accord, signed in Taba, Egypt, in 1995. The Oslo Accords marked the start of the Oslo process, a peace process aimed at achieving a peace treaty based on United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338, and at fulfilling the “right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.” The Oslo process started after secret negotiations in Oslo, resulting in the recognition by the PLO of the State of Israel and the recognition by Israel of the PLO as the representative of the Palestinian people and as a partner in negotiations.
