JNS.org – Representatives from the Middle East Quartet (European Union, United Nations, United States, and Russia) on Wednesday met with Israeli officials to discuss diplomatic avenues to help end the current Palestinian terror wave in Israel.

“The Envoys of the Middle East Quartet are in Israel and Palestine. They continue their efforts to promote significant steps on the ground, consistent with prior agreements that can restore hope to the Palestinian people and preserve the viability of a negotiated two-state solution,” U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov said in a video conference briefing to the U.N. Security Council, according to Haaretz.

The Quartet delegation met in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office following a two-month postponement of the planned visit.

“A long, matter-of-fact, and serious discussion took place on ways to stop the violence and reinstate security and stopping the [Palestinian] incitement, as well as a discussion on possible future prospects for the peace process,” Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emanuel Nahshon said.

    British Betrayal and Deception

    The parlous condition of the Jewish people over a large part of the known world, and particularly in such countries s Germany, Poland and Rumania, has called increasing attention to the workings of the Mandate for Palestine now administered by Great Britain under the authority of the League of Nations. The Mandate, when it was written, as well as the antecedent Balfour Declaration, clearly contemplated that the “home” to be established in Palestine was intended for the whole Jewish people who were to be established there by international sanction in the future. The intention was to provide a sane and reasonable solution to the age-old Jewish Diaspora problem, and it anticipated those circumstances which have rendered so large a portion of the Jewish race homeless.
    If this was indeed the purpose of the Mandate it has proved a miserable failure, since it has solved nothing and has only succeeded in adding a new and formidable problem to a world already sinking under the weight of problems. Many reasons are adduced for this failure. Much is made of the irreconcilable differences between Arabs and Jews, instigated by the British, which the mandatory now claims render the Mandate unworkable.
    The circumstances, under which; the Balfour Declaration; and the Mandate for Jewish Palestine, were issued. Napoleon Bonaparte in 1799 offered The Jews in Palestine to reestablish the Jewish Home in Palestine. The false assertion that the Declaration was extorted from an unwilling Britain by Jewish financiers during the War can be obviously disposed of as a pure invention of the anti-Semitic mind. Another and more reasonable claim made to justify Britain’s position in this matter is that she was totally ignorant of the real conditions in Palestine and the actual problems she was letting herself
    in for when she made her bargain with the Jews; Britain reneged and violated the terms of the Mandate; furthermore, behind the scenes Britain encouraged Arab riots and violence against the Jews in Palestine and turned a blind eye while hundreds of thousands of Arabs entered Palestine from other Arab Lands. Under examination this contention loses much of its plausibility. For a hundred years Zionism, as we shall see, had been almost as much an English movement as it was a purely Jewish one. As for local conditions in Palestine, it is undoubted that British officialdom knew more about Arab social and economic problems than the Jews aspiring to settle there. From the time the American scholar Robinson attempted to explore archaeological remains in the Holy Land in 1837, London has, through the Palestine Exploration Fund, concentrated on the study of every minute detail that related to Palestine. “Theirs,” state De Haas and Wise, “were the surveys, the compilation of flora and fauna, theirs too the enumeration and localization of the Bedouin tribes; theirs the studies in local conditions, the compilation of customs and excise, estimates of population, speculation as to the origins of peoples, observations on everything that relates to the area between the River of Egypt and the cedars of Lebanon.” 1 Reaching far back into the 1840’s, Lord Palmerston had compiled for his Government thorough material on Palestine, considering the possibility of exercising a British protectorate over that region in the Jewish interests. Since that time the accumulation has been so vast that it is only fair to say that the British archives contain a better survey of Arab social, economic, agricultural and other problems than the Arabs have of themselves.
    As for the Balfour Declaration itself, it may be assumed that Lord Balfour, its author is an infallible witness to its intended purpose.
    He wrote: “The national and international status of the Jews to that of other races . . . would be promoted by giving them that which all other nations possess: a local habitation and a national home . . . [where] they would bear corporate responsibilities and enjoy corporate duties of a kind which, from the nature of the case, they can never possess as citizens of any non-Jewish state.” 2 It will be evident from the records that neither the Declaration nor the Mandate confers upon non-Jews any rights which would allow them to interfere with the growth and operation of the National Home. It is obvious that if these documents were to be interpreted so as to include National Home rights to legally present non-Jews, both the National Home grant to the Jews and the rights of non-Jews would be repealed by implication. The document would then repeal itself, which on the face of it would be a reduction ad absurdum.
    As will also be seen from these pages, British trusteeship of the Holy Land was the result of Jewish demand itself, Wedgwood admitting rather shamefacedly in this respect that the Jews were “almost the only non-Anglo-Saxon people who seem to believe that on the whole England does try to behave decently towards other people.” Moreover; history has proven otherwise. The French offered to take over the Mandate for Palestine, which might have produced a better result. 3
    The records prove beyond any doubt; that, the British Mandatory for Palestine has followed a deliberate violation of the Mandate terms and defaulting British policy in respect to its obligations there, and has itself largely created the conditions which it now so thoroughly decries. A large share of its biased policies have been motivated entirely by British power politics in the Mediterranean, in which the British Mandate was used for the purpose of surrounding British Imperial strategy in the Middle East with the aura of sanctity. A factor of even greater importance, however, is the gross anti-Semitism of a handful of civil servants in the bureaus of Whitehall and Westminster, which exists to these days 2016. It is to the phobia of these men against Jews that most of the troubles agitating the Holy Land can be traced. Its wantonness is not flaunted; it is true, like the excesses of the German Nazis or the Polish Endeks.
    It lies icily beneath the shining hardness of bureaucratic logic.
    It is overlaid with the softness of English colonial skill – but, as we shall discover, it is in no sense less intense, and fully as implacable, as the open anti-Semitism of the Nazis on the Continent.
    This, briefly, will be found to be the underlying condition which hides beneath the maze of pretension by which London has consistently and falsely justified its bad faith to the Jews and to the world. Recent documents released by the British, has shown that the British government instructed its intelligence agency to bomb Holocaust Jewish refugee ships bound for Palestine; under “Operation Embarrass”. It is this factor which has caused the declared policy of the British Mandate to fail so ignominiously and which has allowed the Holy Land in these past years to be given over to Arab hooligans and desperadoes who have murdered its citizens, burned its crops and houses and demoralized its commerce. These terror and violence continue today; not only in Israel but in The Middle East and other parts of the world.
    The records are voluminous. The Arabs received over five million square miles of territory after WWI, which established 22 Arab states. It is interesting to note that the Arab Land have terrorized and expelled over a million Jewish families from the Arab countries; they confiscated all their assets; businesses, homes and over 70,000 square miles of Jewish owned land. The Jews have lived in the Arab lands for over 2500 years. Most of the expelled Jewish families from Arab lands, have been resettled in Israel and today comprise over half its population.

    Their will be wave after wave after wave of peace makers, a tsunami of them…..and their focus will be Israel. Not because they want peace….some of the unsuspecting participants who actually believe their endeavor is for conflict resolution have been drawn naievely into the process for deceptive reasons the other ones are their for the sole purpose of terminating Israel and eliminating Jews as a race worldwide. Scripture says everyone who participates in this process for the wrong reasons will be crushed. Scripture says that Russia would have hooks put in its jaws and forced to participate with the beast. But we will see how that plays out. It seems every time the beast tries to play rope a dope with Russia the beast comes out on the losing end. That’s why Daniel said China and Russia would enrage the beast. Now if you read the later portions of Revelation 17 you can get a pretty clear idea who the beast is. Revelation 18 is a clear depiction of what happens to the Harlot on the back of the beast. Danial referred to a little horn who rises amoungst the 10 horns, he is the bad boy who has the reins of the harlot, but he is one of the eleven horns on the beast….not actually born and raised in the harlot nation. His function along with the other ten horns is to destroy America the great Satan along with Israel. He cloaks himself in wave after wave after wave of peace negotiations. He creates mayhem and destruction over the entire planet by Trojan horsing himself amoungst unsuspecting nations coming in the name of peace and then unleashing his jihadist minions on them. France is a perfect example, the harlot releases waves of Syrians and bloodshed follows. Revelation in the first seal calls him the rider on the white horse. One of those with the Middle East quartet is a Revelation 16 frog representing the little horn of Daniel, and the white horse of revelation. His salutation, “Welcome I come in peace”.

    The Quartet should stop financing encouraging and protecting these terrorists….That should/would be a good start…

  • Allan

    You’ll never stop terror until the schools (hence, the governments and religious leaders) in the Middle East stop teaching and preaching hate.
