Biden Tells Israeli Government He’s Reversing Trump’s Jerusalem Move Despite Its Strong Objections

President Joe Biden is expected to reopen the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem, in a reversal of a decision by former President Donald Trump. When the Trump administration moved the U.S. Embassy in 2019 from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital city of Jerusalem, the consulate was merged with the new embassy — a move that led to worsening ties with the Palestinian Authority, NPR reported at the time.

However, according to a Wednesday report by Axios, the Biden administration has its eyes set on overturning the decision made by the Trump administration, despite Israeli objections.

“President Biden told Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett during their White House meeting that he will not abandon his plan to reopen the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem, setting up a major point of contention between the administrations,” Axios reported.

Citing unnamed Israeli and U.S. officials, Axios correspondent Barak Ravid reported that during Bennett’s bilateral meeting with Biden, the issue of the consulate in Jerusalem was raised multiple times by the U.S. president. Biden reportedly stressed that he had made a campaign pledge regarding the issue. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has also already said the U.S. would go ahead with the decision. According to Axios, the Biden administration previously agreed to carry out the reopening after Nov. 4, which is the deadline for Bennett to get his budget passed in the Knesset, the unicameral Israeli equivalent of Congress.

Biden’s plans were criticized by several Israeli officials.

“We think it’s a bad idea,” Israel’s foreign minister, Yair Lapid, told journalists on Sept. 1, according to The Guardian.

“Jerusalem is the sovereign capital of Israel and Israel alone, and therefore we don’t think it’s a good idea.”

“We know that the [Biden] administration has a different way of looking at this, but since it is happening in Israel, we are sure they are listening to us very carefully,” Lapid said.

“Jerusalem is the capital of one country only: Israel. I don’t want to go into details, but this is my clear position,” Bennett told the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations on Friday through a Zoom video conference.

Bennett, however, also mentioned that he desired a “no drama” relationship with the Biden administration, according to Axios. The outlet reported that many Israeli leaders, such as Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked and Minister of Justice Gideon Sa’ar, believe that reopening the consulate would be tantamount to Biden infringing on Israel’s sovereignty in Jerusalem. Israel considers all of Jerusalem to be its capital. The Palestinians seek the eastern half of the city to be the capital of their desired Palestinian state.

“We have an interesting and yet delicate structure of our government and we think this might destabilize this government and I don’t think the American administration wants this to happen,” Lapid told reporters at the Sept. 1 news conference, The Guardian reported.

“If the Biden administration wants to see Netanyahu abandoning his Pilates classes and going back to the prime minister’s office, this is the best way to do it,” a senior Israeli official told Axios.

African-American Leader Destroys the ‘Palestinian Myth,’ Proves Jerusalem belongs to the Jews


Reported By Onan Coca December 19, 2017

Bishop Aubrey Shines tends to make liberals very upset. Why? Because he refuses to side with them simply because society expects him to. When he disagrees with Democrat policies, plans, or ideas, he loudly explains why they are wrong and why they are wrong for the black community.

During the 2016 presidential election, Bishop Shines saw through Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, and realized that Donald Trump offered him and his community the best opportunity for growth and prosperity. This led Shines to support Trump, drawing the ire of the majority Democrat black community in America, but thus far, Trump’s policies have proven Shines right.

By most economic measures minority Americans, particularly blacks and hispanics, are already faring far better than they did during any point in the Obama era. (See here and here for the mathematical proof.)

However, Bishop Shines latest commentary isn’t drawing the ire of the left for siding with Trump when it comes to the black community, no this time he’s got liberals mad because he’s siding with Israel.

In a recent video, Bishop Shines blows up the “Palestinian Myth,” and explains why the Jews are the true owners of the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.

A partial transcript from Breitbart:

“You may be wondering where did this two-state solution idea originate from? And why hasn’t it been implemented.

Briefly, in 1936 British leaders formed a commission that felt the best way to protect the Jews that were constantly being harassed by the Arab people, was to divide the land into two states, giving over 80% to the Arabs and the small 20% to the Jews. Jews accepted, the Arabs declined. In 1947 the U.N tried the same scenario, again, the Arab countries declined.

Arab nations began intensifying their efforts by attacking the small Israeli nation, but to no avail. In 1967 the leaders of the Arab nations met and unanimously decided they would never accept Israel under no condition other than their dead bodies rotting in the streets.

So, in 1967, the Jordanians (not the so-called Palestinians), along with its Arab neighbors, invaded Israel once again in the hopes that they would wipe out the remaining Jewish presence. Israel won that war and kicked out the Jordanians from the land they had illegally occupied almost two decades prior known as the West Bank.”

This land has nothing to do with a Palestinian people; it was illegally part of Jordan for 18 years. 80% of the so-called Palestinians are Jordanian Arabs. Hence, there already is a ‘Palestinian state’ it happens to be called Jordan. Even in the year 2000 current president of Mahood Abbas was offered an additional 10% of the land for peace, of course he declined.

In 2005 the Jewish people gave the Gaza area away hoping peace would result in the gesture, instead the land has been used to attack the Jews by sending thousands of rockets into the communities that are only a few miles away, can you imagine sending your kids to school in the mornings or kissing someone you love before he or she goes to the office only to hear air sirens blaring in the streets or your office where you’re working?

The fear that would grip your heart knowing you may never see your children or your love one’s ever again?

Dividing your God given land by appeasing those that hate you, as well as, that desire to totally annihilate you hasn’t been nor will ever be the best solution. Thank you President DJT for having the resiliency and tenacity to do what a dozen other presidents promised to do but lacked the courage to do.”

 

Palestinian Leader Calls for Killing of Israelis, Just One Week after Palestinians told Trump they Teach their Kids “Peace”


Reported By Onan Coca | May 31, 2017

Over the last few weeks President Trump has met with Palestinian Prime Minister Abbas a couple of times. The first meeting they had seemed to go pretty well, with the President happy to hear Abbas say that the Palestinian people wanted peace. However, between that meeting and their second meeting, President Trump learned that Abbas had been lying to him.

President Trump, never one for beating around the bush reportedly berated Abbas in their second meeting for having lied to him.

According to a report by Israel’s Channel Two an angry Trump yelled at Abbas during their talks last Tuesday because of the Palestinian Authority’s continued incitement against Jews and against Israel.

“You tricked me in DC!” the President was reported to have hollered at the stunned Palestinian, “You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement.”

Abbas then reassured the President that the Palestinian people wanted peace and that Palestinian parents were raising their children to be peaceful. As we know, this is a lie. We have seen the propaganda that the Palestinian schools teach their children, we have heard the songs that their children sing about stabbing Jews, and we have seen the TV shows where colorful puppets speak of the wonder of murdering Jews. But Abbas swore up and down that the Palestinian people just wanted peace…

So then why are his chief lieutenants writing op-eds telling their people to pick up guns and kill Jews? Just last week a member of the PLO’s leadership published a piece urging his fellow Palestinians to find a way, any way, to violently revolt against Israel.

From Newsmax:

Issa Karake, the PLO’s Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs director, accused Israel of trying to kill Palestinian prisoners who ended a 40-day hunger strike the day after his article was written.

“They (i.e., the prisoners) are being murdered [by Israel] in silence, through an official and planned method,” Karake wrote Wednesday on Prisoners’ Affairs commission’s website. “They are melting, bleeding, and dissipating. If one prisoner will fall, the entire world will fall. The world will die if a Palestinian prisoner will die . . . Break the pens, look for a gun and bullets. Do not look at your watches, the time is up . . . “

Two additional calls to arms were added when the Palestinian news site Al-Quds published the article a day later: “enough, let every one of us look for a gun and bullets.”

 

Maybe this is what Abbas meant when he said they were teaching their kids about peace? Maybe he was saying that once the Palestinians kill all the Jews, there will be peace?

Wake up America. The Palestinians aren’t an “oppressed” minority, they are a nation of terrorists hell-bent on murdering every Jewish person living in the Middle East. Israel could give them the West Bank and the Gaza strip tomorrow, they could pull all of their soldiers away from Palestinian territory, they could open the borders to allow Palestinian held territory to trade with whomever they want, and the Palestinians would simply use that as an opportunity to kill as many Jews as possible. How do we know? Because that is exactly what has happened every time Israel has given any concession, or signed any “ceasefire.” The Palestinians never actually cease firing, and they won’t, until the Jews are dead.

Israel is the good guy and we need to remember that.

A 23-year-old Christian tourist was stabbed to death by a Palestinian man as Christians gathered to celebrate Good Friday, ABC News reports. The attack comes as Christians around the world commemorate the day Jesus Christ was crucified and died, rising from the dead three days later on Easter — the highest Christian holy day.christian-persecution

The attack took place on a tram close to the Old City, where tourists from around the world have come to commemorate Easter and Passover. The woman died shortly after she was brought to a medical facility, despite efforts to save her. The 57-year old Palestinian attacker was apprehended by police.

Local media quoted witnesses as saying the man stabbed the woman multiple times. Reports said a pregnant woman was injured when the light rail came to a sudden stop. The attacker was apprehended by officers at the scene, police said.

Reports indicate two others were injured as well.

According to ABC News, Palestinians have killed 42 Israelis and two visiting Americans since September 2015. The Palestinian Authority regularly incites violence and acts of terror against Christians and Jews in Israel.against-america

Governments around the world are taking steps to prevent attacks by radical Islamic terrorists over the Easter holiday. Authorities in Kosovo claim they have already intercepted plans for such an attack.

WTF: Look What Dems Are PLANNING 5 Days Prior To Inauguration – UNBELIEVABLE


waving flagPublished on January 4, 2017

With THIS timing? You KNOW it’s an attempt to hamstring Trump. What’s the matter? Social elites haven’t made a big enough mess of international affairs in the last few years? They are doubling down. What could POSSIBLY go wrong in this scenario:

“France will convene some 70 countries on Jan. 15 for a Middle East peace conference in Paris…and will invite the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to meet separately at its conclusion. France has repeatedly tried to breathe new life into the peace process this year, holding a preliminary conference in June where the United Nations, European Union, United States and major Arab countries gathered to discuss proposals without the Israelis or Palestinians present.

The plan was to hold a follow-up conference before the end of the year with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas involved to see whether the two sides could be brought back to negotiations and revive moribund peace talks. Netanyahu had repeatedly rejected the conference proposal.

“France is still determined to hold a conference in Paris to reaffirm the necessity of a two-state solution,” Jean-Marc Ayrault told journalists. “January 15 is the date that has been fixed and 70 countries are invited. We are not going to give up now.” A French diplomatic source said invitations would also be sent to Netanyahu and Abbas to meet French president Francois Hollande to outline the results of the conference.”–Reuters

Why the hurry?

“France is still determined to hold a conference in Paris to reaffirm the necessity of a two-state solution,” Jean-Marc Ayrault told journalists.

…The source said that with uncertainty surrounding how the next US administration would handle the issue it was more important than ever to deal with the issue.

“You can see that it’s even more justified in this context,” the source said. —Reuters [emphasis added]hate-merchants

Oh… THAT’s why.

On a planet basically aligned against Israel (the lone Democratic state in the region), 70 countries will get together to decide what to do about the situation between Israel and its bellicose neighbor. With NEITHER party present.

And then the FRENCH government will announce their decision to Israel and Palestine?

How about USA, Russia and China get together and decide which city in France to assign to the new migrants that have flooded into Europe? Does THAT sound fair?

Maybe Paris. They’re all there anyway.

Because that’s what’s going to happen here.

About 70 years ago, the fate of Jews was in the hands of Europe.

It didn’t end well. What happened to ‘never forget’?

Obama-Kerry State Dept Accuses Israel of Terrorism


waving flagby Ken Klukowski 23 October 2015

John Kerry AP

Shifty-600-LIJERUSALEM—Ordinary Israelis are furious about the Obama administration’s accusing Israel of committing acts of terrorism, drawing moral equivalency between the Jewish State and the terrorists who seek Israel’s destruction. On Oct. 13, Secretary of State John Kerry suggested at a forum hosted at Harvard that Israel’s building additional residences in West Bank towns—which Israel’s opponents refer toBack-stabed1 as building settlements, carrying the connotation that Jews are “settling” land that belongs to someone else—is provoking the current wave of attacks against Israel. The following day, Kerry’s spokesman at the U.S. Department of State—John Kirby—was asked to clarify Kerry’s remarks.

Kirby was asked, “You do consider it an act of terrorism. Okay, so that would suggest then that you believe that this is—that both sides are, in fact, committing these…” Kirby cut off the questioner to respond, “Well, I would say certainly individuals on both sides of this divide are—have proven capable of, and in our view [are], guilty of acts of terror.”America Antisemitism

Israelis whom Breitbart News talked to on the streets of Jerusalem were less than enthusiastic about the comparison.

1406862781006-WebOnly072914indy-gazaYoav Rotem is a tour guide in Israel, whose business takes groups to historical, cultural, and religious sites across the country, as well as conducting wine-tasting tours. Shown this quote, he responded, “It’s a bit stupid. Two Israelis were involved in an act that was terrible but he’s putting me in the same category as if I were a terrorist. I do not want to wipe the Palestinian people off the map.” Rotem noted that his perspective was as someone who deals daily with foreigners as he takes them on tours. He believes that Israelis who do not regularly deal with Americans might have a more blunt assessment: “Many regular Israelis would simply say of Kerry, ‘He’s a son of a bitch.’”

Breitbart News also spoke with an Israeli soldier, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to comment on U.S. policy. “That is insane,” he began. “We punish anyone who deliberately attacks innocent people, and do everything to avoid harming civilians. The Palestinians deliberately target civilians, and celebrate those who succeed.”

I am from the US GovernmentElliot Chodoff, a leading Israeli counter-terrorism agent whom Breitbart News has quoted previously in this series of reports, remarked a couple days later— not in response to Kerry’s and Kirby’s words, but regarding current pressure from Washington— “The United States says Israel must show restraint, when we have had one thousand rockets fired into Israel over the past year. I wonder how America would respond if a thousand rockets were launched into New York or New Jersey.”

Shifting gears, he adds:

“Then IDF [Israeli Defense Force] responds to take out the attackers and the rocket launchers, who are launching against Israeli civilians, firing from Gaza’s schools, and hospitals, and other civilian locations, and sooner or later civilians are killed during the response—because all humans make mistakes, and war is messy, and the reality is that there are almost always unintended casualties during military operations, especially in urban settings—then the United Nations issues a statement condemning Israel for human-rights violations.”D-Shied-590-LI

Back in the U.S., Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) reacted to the remarks from Kerry and Kirby in a press statement: “The Obama administration is the most hostile we have seen towards the nation of Israel in our nation’s history.” Calling the remarks an “unfounded slur” that is “utterly unacceptable,” he added, “We must immediately and unconditionally reject the delusion that the coordinated Palestinian frenzy of bloodlust is in any way legitimate. There is no moral equivalence here between the savagery of the Palestinian terrorists and the innocent Israelis they are trying to murder.”Half-Way-590-LI-300x214

I’m sure you’ve heard about the protests conducted in Paris and London to support a terrorist organization – Hamas — against a sovereign nation-state

— Israel. Somehow these protestors fail to understand that Hamas and other Islamic terrorist groups exist to destroy the State of Israel. Or is this just the face of 21st Century anti-semitism and Islamic totalitarianism? Considering the large Muslim populations in England and France, that may well be true.

But what I’m quite certain you haven’t heard or seen is the point of view from Gaza-born Arab journalist, Abd Al-Bari Atwan. According to Atwan, even Arab leaders are tired of Hamas and “pray Israel will get rid of Hamas once and for all.”

PLEASE WATCH THE FOLLOWING BROADCAST. IT IS EYE OPENING:

protest in france

ConfusedConsider this — it is Egypt, the largest Arab nation in the world, which is fighting against the Muslim Brotherhood — a terrorist organization that the Obama administration supported. Egypt is destroying the Hamas (Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood ) tunnels and cutting off their support. Egypt is fighting against jihadists trying to establish sanctuaries and bases of operations in the Sinai. All the while, the Obama administration is withholding Apache attack helicopter support to Egypt yet Obama provided Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood government with fighter aircraft and tanks. Whose side is Obama on? Whose side is the global progressive socialist Left on?

Certainly Obama and the Left are not aligned with liberty and freedom from Islamic totalitarianism and jihadism. They protest against it.

According to an AFP report on yahoo.com, “Parts of central London were brought to a standstill on Saturday as thousands of pro-Palestinians marched in protest against Israel’s offensive in Gaza, while in Paris a banned demonstration descended into violence. Organizers of the London rally claimed that “tens of thousands” of people joined the march from Prime Minister David Cameron’s office to the Israeli embassy, many of them chanting “Israel is a terror state.”

Israel is a terror state? Israel is a terror state? Israel seeks its survival and is fighting against a masked, non-state, non-uniform terrorist enemy that has declared as its goal the extermination of every Jew. What part of that do these idiots not understand? Israel dragged its own citizens out of Gaza and turned it over to these “Palestinians” and what has been their reward? Rockets and missiles. Tunnels used by the enemy to infiltrate into Israel to capture or kill its citizens.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated the truth simply: “We use missiles to protect our people, Hamas uses people to protect their missiles.”

Yahoo reports that “British Labour lawmaker Diane Abbott said it was the “biggest London Palestinian rally in years.” The left-wing Stop the War Coalition, one of the organizers of the march, condemned British and U.S. support for Israel as “nothing less than collusion with war crimes killing women, children and disabled people.” Sarah Colborne, director of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, said the five-hour demonstration was a “chance to say enough is enough: Israel’s siege of Gaza and its occupation of Palestinian land has to end now.” “idiot

And this is the typical liberal progressive and Islamic jihadist response: blame the victim – Israel — and support the aggressor. I suppose these same protestors believe that it’s the fault of the Iraqi Christians that they happen to live in Mosul and if they fought back against the Islamic State (IS) who wishes their destruction, they’d be in the wrong. This is just an indicator as to how effective the Islamic totalitarian propaganda machine has been in the West. We have allowed a cancer to take root in our civilization that is perpetuating a horrible lie and distortion of the truth. Sadly enough, we have individuals like Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and John Kerry who continue to make comments fueling this sentiment.

You don’t hear about any protests to support Christians facing genocide in Iraq. This is the collusion between the Leftist progressives and Islamic jihadists. It is a clear a present danger for America, Israel and indeed the world. And it is precisely why the liberal Left cannot be in a position of power in our respective countries.

Obama Appoints Hamas Adviser Robert Malley to Senior Director on National Security Council

BrotherhoodPresident Obama has named Hamas adviser Robert O. Malley the senior director at the National Security Council (NSC). You may recall that Malley was foreign policy adviser to then-presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2007, and was fired from his campaign team in 2008 because of his notorious ties to Hamas, the PLO and other jihadist, anti-Israel groups.

Atlas readers are long familiar with this subversive jihad operative. As early as 2007 and  2008 (and repeatedly throughout the campaign and in my book), I warned Atlas readers of the troubling relationship between Robert O. Malley and Barack Hussein Obama.

Robert Malley told the NY Times that he had regularly been in contact with Hamas, which is designated a terrorist organization by the State Department.

2007 and further:

[Malley] was part of the American negotiating team that dealt with Yasser Arafat at Camp David. He has presented a revisionist history of those negotiations since then: presenting a view that blames Israel for the failures of the negotiations. His version has been radically at odds with the views of Americans and Israelis (including the views of American Middle East negotiator Dennis Ross-also an adviser to Obama- and President Clinton). He has spent years representing the Palestinian point of view, co-writing a series of anti-Israel articles with Hussein Agha-a former Arafat adviser. Palestinian advocate. These have appeared in the New York Review of Books a publication that has served as a platform for a slew of anti-Israel advocates from Tony Judt to the aforementioned George Soros to the authors of the Israeli Lobby book Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer. Malley has also called settlements “colonies” — implicitly condemning Israel as a “colonial” state. His writings have been so critical of Israel that the media-monitoring group CAMERA has a “dossier” on him.

Discover the Networks:

In a July 2001 op-ed (titled “Fictions About the Failure at Camp David“) which was published in the New York Times, Robert Malley (whose family, as noted above, had close ties to Yasser Arafat) alleged that Israeli — not Palestinian — inflexibility had caused the previous year’s Camp David peace talks (brokered by Bill Clinton) to fail. This was one of several controversial articles Malley has written — some he co-wrote with Hussein Agha, a former adviser to Arafat – blaming Israel and exonerating Arafat for that failure.

hamas

One security official at the time said, “We are noting with concern some of Obama’s picks as advisers, particularly Robert Malley who has expressed sympathy to Hamas and Hezbollah and offered accounts of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations that don’t jibe with the facts” (here).

Because of the exposure of Malley by the blogs, he was removed from Obama’s campaign team. But the mask is off, and Obama has no need to pretend to be something he is not. Malley is back and in charge  —

“Adviser Fired by Obama for Hamas Meeting Gets Top WH Security Job,”  Judicial Watch, February 19, 2014

A radical foreign policy adviser fired by President Obama years ago for meeting with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas has been hired by the White House to be the senior director at the National Security Council (NSC).

How generous of the commander-in-chief to let bygones be bygones when it comes to this extremist, a Middle East “expert” named Robert Malley whose family had close ties to Yasser Arafat, founder of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Fatah movement. Malley was an adviser in Bill Clinton’s White House and he consistently exonerates Palestinians and condemns Israel.

Over the years he has published a number of newspaper opinion pieces urging the United States to reach out and negotiate with terrorist enemies like Hamas, Hezbollah and Muqtada al-Sadr. A website that documents the networks and agendas of the political left offers details about Malley’s scary past and provides links to the outrageous articles he’s published, including several co-written with Hussein Agha, a former adviser to Arafat.

Malley grew up in France and his Egyptian-born father was a key figure in Egypt’s communist party and a close friend of Arafat’s. His parents were fervently anti-Israel and huge supporters of several leftist revolutionary liberation movements, especially the Palestinian cause. Malley published a piece in a mainstream newspaper declaring that Israel was responsible for the failure of Bill Clinton’s peace talks with the Palestinians. Malley attended the 2000 event, which was held at Camp David because it was the site of the landmark 1978 Israeli-Egyptian peace accords.

When Obama launched his 2008 presidential campaign, he brought Malley on as a foreign policy adviser Who is better offfocusing on the Middle East. The then-Illinois senator reportedly dumped Malley around May for meeting with and having regular contact with Hamas, which has long been classified as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department. A London newspaper broke the story about Malley getting the boot for schmoozing it up with terrorists and U.S. media repeated the line, but Middle Eastern press published a vastly different version.

Shortly after Obama got elected president in early November, Israel’s largest news site revealed that the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat reported that Hamas engaged in talks with Obama for months through his “fired” adviser. The article quotes Ahmad Yousuf, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s political advisor, saying this: “We were in contact with a number of Obama’s aides through the Internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza, but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as they may have a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain (to attack Obama).”

Every countryNow Malley is officially a top dog in the crucial, tremendously influential agency that advises the president on national security and foreign policy matters. The Obama-loving mainstream newspaper that reported Malley’s new position this week says his return to the White House reflects a changing U.S. role in the Middle East. “This time he will manage the fraying ties between the United States and its allies in the Persian Gulf, a job that says a lot about how America’s role in the Middle East has changed
