JNS.org – U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a likely Republican presidential candidate, met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Wednesday and vowed to stand up for Israel in the United Nations.

“If there’s an effort by any nation to have the [U.N.] Security Council define the terms of the peace process, there will be a violent backlash from the United States Congress in a bipartisan fashion,” Graham told reporters at Jerusalem’s King David Hotel.

Graham’s remarks allude to a recently announced proposal by France that vowed to recognize a Palestinian state if there is no agreement between Israel and the Palestinians through an upcoming French-backed U.N. Security Council resolution.

“I am in charge of the foreign assistance account, I’m in charge of the money we provide for the United Nations,” said Graham, who chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee’s subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs.

Graham also pledged a “violent pushback” against the Palestinians if they pursue war crimes charges against Israeli soldiers in the International Criminal Court.

    “If we are serious about peace in the Middle East, then we need to stop pretending that the Israelis are dealing with a rational enemy they can negotiate with; because in doing that, we are helping to feed a massive political lie whose gravitational force has become so great, it has warped reality. It is Hamas who has turned Gaza into a ware-zone recently, not Israel…”

    “All anyone needs to know about the Middle East conflict is that: the Jews want peace and the Arabs don’t, because the Arabs hate Jews for religious reasons and they want them dead. Politics and territory are just excuses.”

    PAT CONDELL SAID:

    “The relentless focus solely on Israel that ignores the world’s real human rights violators tells us that this [BDS] is an anti-Semitic movement, and if you’re are part of it, then you’re are part of that too. If Israel was a Christian or a Buddhist country, there would not be any BDS campaign, and everyone knows it, just as there isn’t any BDS for Tibet, a country invaded and culturally-raped by the Chinese, but then, the Chinese aren’t Jews. No BDS for the Saudi Arabia for treating women like livestock, because the Saudis aren’t Jews, which is lucky for them, because if they were, they would have to ban themselves from entering their own country. How inconvenient!

    Crude Islamic Jew-hatred has permeated the Middle East conflict from day one, yet its influence is always carefully omitted from all political analysis. Any doctor who diagnosed an illness as ineptly and dishonestly would deserve to be struck-off and prosecuted.

    Palestinian leaders have had several chances for a two-state solution and they always rejected it because they don’t want a two-state solution, and they don’t care about the suffering of their people; they want all Jews out there or dead. The leader of Hezbollah is on record as saying that he won’t be happy until every Jew on earth is dead. Once you realize that this is the position, then whatever you think of Israeli security measures, your moral standpoint has to change. We know that if the Arabs would lay down their weapons, they could have peace and prosperity for all their people, and the Israelis would not need to build barriers or do anything else the world disapproves of; they could simply get on with what they do best; technological innovation, making life better for all of us, including Arabs.

    One the other hand, we know that if the Israelis were to lay down their weapons, they would be massacred, men women and children alike. The Arabs are even happy to put their own children in the firing line to attack Jews, they hate them so much, and this hatred comes directly from their religion.”
