JNS.orgThe Israeli Foreign Ministry summoned French Ambassador to Israel Patrick Maisonnave to express displeasure in France’s decision to support the Palestinians failed United Nations Security Council resolution for unilateral establishment of statehood.

“The only way to reach progress with the Palestinians is through direct negotiations, not through unilateral announcements or a unilateral policy,” Aviv Shir-On—the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s deputy director-general for Western Europe—told Maisonnave, Haaretz reported.

The Palestinians’ Security Council resolution called for Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank by 2017 and the establishment of a Palestinian state with borders based on the pre-1967 lines.

According to Maisonnave, France’s decision to support the resolution was not aimed at Israel, but rather was an attempt to prevent the Palestinians from pursuing other unilateral steps.

“That’s exactly what happened after the Security Council rejected the proposal, and the Palestinians went to The Hague,” Maisonnave said, referring to the Palestinian Authority’s bid to join the International Criminal Court.

    The Palestinians do not have big enough britches to take down Israel. What israel should be concerned with is what is behind curtain number two. They are the ones who’ will not muddy the water by prematurely pulling the trigger to soon on Israel. First they will make it appear that Israel is rejecting reasonable demands by the international community. They must whittle away at what good standing Israel has with world opinion. This will be done very strategically in a concerted effort by liberal press. Criminal charges will be threaten against Israeli officials, they will attempt to put in place boycotts based on nefarious charges. The U.S. congress will not be guilty of these actions but beware of illegal executive orders.

    It is a very disappointing result – Anti semitism and pure bigotry towards the State of Israel by France AND UN
    To FAVOUR Arab Natons who do not provide humantarian aid to ANY COUNTRY is proof they are not PEACEABLE

  • Re: Israel – To whom it may concern in Europe, Asia, Far East, the US and elsewhere: rev.2

    We are tired of hearing that withdrawal from Judea and Samaria will bring peace. We know and you know that it would bring another Gaza. So stop saying it and promoting this fallacy. Past experience has proven that concessions, appeasement and land for peace only increased terror, violence and more conflict and hostilities.

    We are tired of hearing that land beyond the Green Line is ‘Arab-Palestinian land’. The Green Line is simply an armistice line that has no political significance. You know this too. The San Remo Treaty of 1920 Granted the Mandate for Palestine to the Jewish people, the same Allied powers also established 21 Arab States and one Jewish State – The Arabs are not willing to give up any part of the 21 Arab States and the Jews are not willing to give up any part of the Jewish State.

    We are tired of hearing about the “Arab-Palestinian people.” They are no different from the Arabs of Syria or Egypt, from which most of their ancestors migrated in the last 150 years or so. There is no Palestinian language or religion, and until very recently they considered themselves simply ‘Arabs’. Their culture is almost entirely defined by their opposition to the Jewish State. Teaching hate, violence and terror to their children. There never was an Arab-Palestinian State or people in History. The Arab Palestinians have a State in Jordan which is 80% of the land originally allocated to the Jewish people under the San Remo Treaty of 1920.

    We are tired of hearing that “the Arab-Palestinians deserve a state.” We are indigenous here, not them, and their behavior entitles them more to a trial at The Hague than to a State. The Arab- Palestinians have a State it is called Jordan which was carved out of Jewish allocated land in 1922, in violation of the treaty of 1920.

    And they certainly don’t deserve our Jewish State, which is the only State they want. They already took 80% of Jewish allocated land which is Jordan, a country that never existed in history before WWI. Israel also gave them the Gaza Strip.

    We are tired of hearing about ‘The Occupation’, it is “Liberated Jewish Land”. As Minister Naftali Bennett said the other day, you can’t be an occupier in your own land. The Arabs are the occupiers, Greater Israel has been a Jewish State for 4,000 years even if it was temporarily conquered and occupied by various nations over the centuries.

    We are tired of hearing that “settlements are illegal under international law.” They are not. The San Remo Treaty of 1920 explicitly stated that Jewish people can reside anywhere in the Mandate for Palestine, those terms have not been abrogated and are set in perpetuity. The San Remo Treaty of 1920 allocated the Mandate for Palestine to the Jewish people as a Jewish state. It did not allocate any land to any other people or nation.

    We are tired of hearing that “settlement construction is an obstacle to peace.” Arab rejectionism, destruction, violence, terrorism and suicide bombing is the reason there is no peace. When the Arab-Palestinians teach and preach hate, terror and destruction to their children, this is definitely not a road to peace and coexistence.

    By the way, we are pro-peace. We are just not pro-suicide and self destruction.

    We are tired of hearing about the 5 million (or whatever ridiculous number there are alleged to be) ‘Arab-Palestinian refugees’ or the ‘Arab-Palestinian Diaspora’. There were about 600,000 Arabs that left their homes in 1948, mostly of their own volition, more or less at the same time as the over 990,000 Jewish refugees from Arab countries, of which the Arabs confiscated their homes and land (which is 4 times the size of Israel) and assets totaling over 15 trillion dollars. We resettled ours with limited land and resources — resettle yours (on the land and homes you confiscated from the Jewish people), the 21 Arab states have more land and resources. The Arab dis-information must be ignored and countered.

    We are tired of hearing anything from anyone associated with the U.N. The U.N. is a parasitic and criminal enterprise dominated by our mortal enemies. The U.N. cannot create states, it can only recommend and so can other nations only recommend and not create a state that never existed before in history. If they want an Arab-Palestinian state, it already exists, it is Jordan which has taken 80% of Jewish allocated land. They also have the land the Arabs Countries confiscated from the Jewish people which is 4 times the size of Israel.

    We are tired of stupid post-colonialist rhetoric. We are not ‘colonists’ and Arabs do not have the right to murder us in the name of ‘resistance’ or beheading Jewish Rabbi’s in Jerusalem’s Har Nof Synagogue. Talking this way reveals you as moral imbeciles. They train their children to be suicide bombers and terrorists. The Arabs are the colonialists, they have colonized the whole Middle East.

    You can not recognize a State and people that never existed and that has no borders, no single government, and no economy. They are not even trusted by the Arab states either.

    We know we can not depend on any kind of security guarantee from anyone except the Israel Defense Forces. So stop being insulted because we do not trust you. And do not ask us to give up any nuclear weapons we might or might not have or any other method and technology that could help protect us.

    If you hate us so much, give us back all our Medical technology that saved your lives. Give us back all our technology development that helped you advance economically and the list goes on and on.

    We know that the left-wing parties in Israel are bankrupt of ideas. We are not going to vote for them, no matter how much you would like us to. So do not bother trying to influence our election. We will only vote for a government that protects its people and cares about the Jewish heritage, more than it cares for world opinion.

    Don’t believe what you read in Ha’aretz newspaper, they represent a minority that has no allegiance to the Jewish heritage.

    Jerusalem, undivided, is the capital of the Jewish State of Israel. Get used to it, because you can’t change it, the Jewish temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem. It was never a Capital of any other nation.


    Ordinary Israelis who care about their heritage and ancestry.

    P.S. In the ICC Israel will be able to charge the Arab -Palestinians with crimes against 5the people of Israel and the Jewish people world-wide. Murder has no statute of limitation. The charges against the Arab Palestinians could amount to thousands of complaints for murder and terror going back to 1948. Israel could assign a staff of lawyers who are good at international law and who have handles case for damages against the Arab Palestinians and won.

    Typical anti Semitic response. A clear case of double speak. That freak Abbas wouldn’t have gotten this far if there weren’t so many Jew haters who think they have kept quiet long enough out of guilt for what they had done to us through the ages and culminating in the Shoah. The young ones are now equating our horrific past with the scum called Palestine when they were murdeing Jews before the establishment of Israel and were in league with nazis to kill us too. But remember Britain’s support of the Arab league and not so long after the end o WW2.
    Nothing has changed. We’re still circa 13million and they were 1.75 billion then and are now 7 billion. We don’t stand a chance.
