The Palestinian Authority (PA), backed by six Arab countries, are presenting a proposal to the UN cultural agency declaring the Jewish Western Wall as part of the Al-Aqsa mosque according to Ynet news. The Wall once served as the retaining wall for the Jews’ ancient Second Temple.
The PA want UNESCO to rename the Western Wall the “Buraq Plaza”.
John Kerry came out on Monday and said Israeli and Palestinian leaders need to clarify the status of Jerusalem’s al-Aksa mosque compound to help end a spate of bloodshed and restore stability. He drew moral equivalence again by saying they “continue to urge everybody to exercise self-restraint,” though he added that Israel has the right to defend themselves.
The administration continues to downplay the “terror attacks” and fails to assign responsibility.
Palestinians began and are continuing a rash of vicious terror attacks on Israelis. Yesterday an Israeli soldier and another were murdered and 11 others were wounded in an attack on a bus station and it was led by Palestinians armed with guns and knives.
Remarkably, there is moral equivalence is being drawn from all quarters, seemingly even from Rome.
The Israelis are effective in defending themselves, with 7 Israelis and 41 Palestinians dead, and because they are, the Palestinians are winning the PR war.
Pope Francis on Sunday appealed for an end to violence in the Holy Land, urging Israelis and Palestinians to shun hate and vengeance, and take concrete steps to ease tensions.
Why isn’t this directed at the Palestinians who are terrorist attackers?
Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer explained the situation to a probing CNN host who pressed on the issue of Israel as somehow being partly responsible for the peace process collapsing. Israel shouldn’t have to even negotiate with these terrorists.
The Palestinian children are being taught, “How to kill a Jew” and the youth are being lied to about Israelis allegedly wanting to attack the Al-Aqsa mosque. They think they are protecting the mosque.
Charles Krauthammer finds the moral equivalence being drawn “appalling.”
It’s absolutely enraging to see the Obama administration put the blame on Israel as they are being attacked by Palestinian terrorists.
A good example of the propaganda was seen in the case of the 13-year-old Palestinian boy, Ahmed Manasra, who Palestinians claimed was an alleged innocent killed by Israeli soldiers. He’s very much alive and he was the attacker.
Thanks to Barack Obama, Iran has a clear path to a nuclear weapon and Israel is now surrounded by Hizbollah, Iranian and Russian in Syria. There are even reports of Cuban troops in Syria. Also thanks to him, the US is aligned with the enemies of Israel and the anti-Semites in the UN.
Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry, who once betrayed the US military while they were still fighting in Vietnam, absurdly blamed the Palestinian terror attacks on settlements. Settlements are merely Jewish homes or apartments built on Jewish land.
IIt’s not only Kerry of course, it’s the paid liars who speak for Obama like formal rear Admiral John Kirby and Josh Earnest.
There is momentum in Congress to cut off the $5 billion in aid we are sending the Palestinians which they use to attack Israel. Obama will veto it. He is a staunch defender of the enemy, not Israel.
Senator Cruz wants to see John Kerry resign.
“Once again Sec. Kerry and his staff have proven themselves utterly unfit for the positions they hold. Mr. Kirby should immediately retract his offensive assertion that Israel is ‘guilty of acts of terror’ or resign, and Secretary Kerry should immediately disavow these remarks or resign.”
John Kirby absurdly drew moral equivalence.
“Individuals on both sides of this divide are—have proven capable of, and in our view, are guilty of acts of terrorism,” State Department Spokesman John Kirby told reporters following questions about the spike in violence.
Kirby also said the administration has obtained “credible reports” of Israelis using excessive force as it deals with a rash of terrorist murders carried out by Palestinians seeking to cause havoc and spark an intifada.
“We’re always concerned about credible reports of excessive use of force against civilians, and we routinely raise our concerns about that.”
My Congressman Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) demanded that Obama replace John Kirby, saying in a Thursday statement:
“It is absolutely disgusting and shameful that the Obama administration not only refuses to stand strong with our ally in Israel, but actually has the audacity to claim that the Israelis are guilty of terrorism.”
Zeldin, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and a co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, said about Kirby:
“Admiral Kirby’s accusation warrants his immediate removal. He should absolutely not utter one more word on behalf of America’s foreign policy. If Secretary John Kerry refuses to speak out and discipline Mr. Kirby than Secretary Kerry needs to step aside as well.”
“Innocent Israelis are being attacked and murdered by terrorists. We must stand with Israel now more than ever.” He added, “This is not about the U.S. fighting Israel’s battles for them. This is about the shameful, reluctance of the Obama administration to strengthen relationships with allies around the globe like Israel because of a twisted understanding of who America’s friends are and who are our enemies.”
The Palestinians even set fire to the compound housing Joseph’s tomb, a religious site venerated by Jews and Christians alike.
As usual, it’s the Jews who are being blamed. Barack Obama has no small part in this.
In case you haven’t seen this video on how to stab a Jew, here it is from a Nazi-like monster.
