Secretary of Hate Hillary Clinton supposedly hatched a new three month plan for a freeze of Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria. Bibi came home with a laundry list of promises that Hillary supposedly made:
- More F-35 fighter jets
- A promise not to call for another freeze
- A promise not to demand a freeze on construction in Jerusalem
- Vetoing any anti-Israel resolutions in the UN
Which brings me to the UN. As I wrote in the previous post, the US is using its veto in the UN as both carrot and club against Israel. If Israel plays ball the US will veto any resolution recognizing the unilateral establishment of a Falacstinian State. Though Juan Hussein Soetoro would likely be committing political suicide if he were to back such a measure, and either commit UN or US troops to Judea and Samaria to fight the IDF, considering that he seems completely unconcerned (especially if he has already decided not to bother running for a second term) he is completely capable of deciding to do just that. We of course know that Samantha Power would love nothing more than to send troops in there. But apparently the White House is already shafting Israel at the UN.
The United Nations Human Rights Council (who would have thought the UN could produce a bigger joke than the General Assembly?), according to Arutz-7, passed nine resolutions this past month against Israel. The United States failed to object to a single one. The US representative also remained silent while a session for the "universal periodic review" of human rights protections in Lebanon turned into an Israel bash fest. Here's a little snippet...
Since the US is already leaving Israel pissing in the wind at the UN what good exactly are any promises from the White House regarding a veto of anti-Israel resolutions? Their not.
Ironically, the PLO doesn't seem to be getting much help from the US in the UN either. In September the US blocked an attempt by the PLO to gain rights in UNESCO. It has been the policy of the US to treat the Falacstinian Authority as a non-state...because it is a non-state. Apparently this doesn't make Abu in a Suit Abbas happy. In a speech earlier this month he stated that Falacstinian statehood is a:
“promise and a debt around [Obama’s] neck and it must be realized."
What's the matter, you not happy with the $500 million? Hey Abu, perhaps you have failed to notice that keeping his promises is not something Juan Hussein Soetoro is very good at. Unfortunately you are obviously too stupid to have figured that out yet...then again, Bibi hasn't figured it out either.
So what does all this backhandedness at the UN mean for the Arabs and Jews? Just what I've been saying all along...that Juan Hussein seems to be doing everything possible to fan the flames and bring on the next war, which he no doubt hopes would result in correcting what he sees as the historical mistake that is the establishment of the modern State of Israel. Hate to break it to you the Barry, but Israel's reestablishment and continued existence is not in your hands, and well above your pay grade.
