UN Dance of Futility

24 09 2011

You start with 57 Muslim nations voting on any issue against one Jewish nation. Add to that the nations intimidated by Islam. No wonder, as Israeli PM Netanyahu pointed out in his UN address yesterday, Israel is always disproportionately condemned. “And it’s here, year after year that Israel is unjustly singled out for condemnation. It’s singled out for condemnation more often than all the nations of the world combined. Twenty-one out of the 27 General Assembly resolutions condemn Israel – the one true democracy in the Middle East.”

Allow me to clarify the issue highlighting key words. First, Chairman Abbas spoke for the Palestinian Authority demanding unilateral recognition as a state without negotiations. The standard he has always maintained for negotiations involved preconditions to which Israel must agree that threaten the very existence of Israel. Netanyahu offered to meet immediately right there in New York with no preconditions.

Later in the day, the Quartet (UN, US, EU and Russia) called for negotiations to resume in one month with no preconditions. Today, the PA has already rejected the Quartet’s plan, demanding the same preconditions. Yet, remarkably, Israel continued to be singled out by the world for being responsible for the failed peace talks.

Folks, this is not that complicated. The bottom line is clear. Israel wants peace. The PA wants Israel to cease to exist. That is the reason nothing Israel gives up for peace is ever enough. Benjamin Netanyahu once famously stated: “if the Arabs lay down their arms there will be no more war, but if Israel lays down its weapons there would be no more Israel.

Yesterday Netanyahu gave a stark reminder of the threat. “Israel’s small dimensions create huge security problems. America can be crossed by jet airplane in six hours. To fly across Israel, it takes three minutes. So is Israel’s tiny airspace to be chopped in half and given to a Palestinian state not at peace with Israel?”

The following scripture sums up it quite well.

Praise God, all you people of Israel; praise Yehovah, the source of Israel’s life. Look, the little tribe of Benjamin leads the way. Then comes a great throng of rulers from Judah and all the rulers of Zebulun and Naphtali. Summon your might, O God. Display your power, O God, as you have in the past. The kings of the earth are bringing tribute to your Temple in Jerusalem. Rebuke these enemy nations—these wild animals lurking in the reeds, this herd of bulls among the weaker calves. Make them bring bars of silver in humble tribute. Scatter the nations that delight in war. Let Egypt come with gifts of precious metals; let Ethiopia bow in submission to God. Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth. Sing praises to the Lord. Psalms 68:26-32
