UNITED NATIONS —

The United Nations voted overwhelmingly Thursday to recognize a Palestinian state, a long-sought victory for the Palestinians but an embarrassing diplomatic defeat for the United States.

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thess 5:3

Peace and safety were the EXACT words being used all during this vote on an illegal sham of a Pali-State being pushed by the islamists. We need to get ready because destruction is on it's way. The final jihad is in the works. They have been emboldened today. I don't say this casually.

Good for them. Out of all the earth, only nine nations were willing to stand up for the right.

We believers are most fortunate because the Almighty has granted us eyes to see and ears to hear. For this we see and hear that our great Creator is indeed real and His Word is Truth. Those who willfully deny Him or oppose His authority are in for a very rough ride—and if without ultimate repentance—then forever. Yikes!!!

IMO, the UN has outlived what little use they were. It is time for them to be “relieved of duty” here in the U.S. and be given 3 months to pack their bags and go, perhaps the Palestinians will take them. The US needs to distance itself from them completely.

The abandonded UN building can be turned into a home for the homeless. What a unique idea, wish I had thought of that.

Oh, before they leave they can pay all their parking tickets which should go to offset the massive overspending by the demmodummies.

So the UN disgraces itself yet again. While this disgusting vote can’t change a thing, it should finally wake up a few of our liberal friends that we need to shut down, or at least export, the UN (and stop paying for it!) Now.

Ummm... doesn’t a “state” require a set of defined borders for that “state”???

Where are these borders defined as “Palestine”?

Now every Jewish state in the region will attack them from three sides, swearing to wipe them out. They’ll invite Jewish residents of this new “state” to leave until the slaughter is done. No, wait. That’s what they did to us, only it didn’t work. We’re still here. Uh...also, there are no other Jewish states. Only the one. What else is wrong — hey, I’m working on it!—we just agreed to a really stupid cease fire agreement, and try hard not to hit the little kiddies the Palis keep hiding behind, so we’re not attacking anyone to annihilate them anytime soon.

Maybe Israel should have immediately recognized the
state of Palestine as being within the boundries of
Gaza and stated that any further rocket attacks would
result in a state of war between Israel and gaza.

I’m at loose ends, what else can happen??

Tired of the world putting the brakes on Israel
when they attempt to muzzle the mad dogs of hamas
and the PA.

I do believe we are in the mist of a war being waged between good and evil in heaven right now. It has been prophesied in the Bible that these things will come to past in the end times and I believe you and I are living in those last days.

When does the UN recognize Gaza as a separate Hamas state?
When does the UN recognize the drug cartels as separate states?

There is no Palestinian language. There is no Palestinian culture. There is no Palestinian capital. There has never been a country named Palestine.

Actually, you can take millitary action against a “state” — If you are just blowing away an area where the hominids that live in it grunt in the same manner, you are committing genocide, which is an atrocity...

They could move it to Ghazat as a show of solidarity. Got a three-star hotel there, bigs swimming pool, and lots of perks. It’s only the people on the other side of the tracks who are starving because of the Israeli blockade./sarc on this last sentence.

‘The final Jihad is in the works.’

I know. We were at an ACT! For America chapter meeting last night.
While this UN subject wasn’t addressed, the ‘Islam Experts’ there (including a former Muslim) have said the most shocking stuff about Islam in the U.S.

I strongly suggest you find a chapter in your area - we travel 30 minutes to one. Would eagerly go further.

How did it come to the point where the Arab world can draw more support for its cause than we can for ours? We’re down to a single European country, Canada, Panama, and a couple of bankrupt islands. Is this truly it? One would have thought we would use some of our foreign aid influence in Africa. President Obama (and Susan Rice) are miserable failures.

Yep .... there may be a huge war “requiring” the Antichrist to come in and confirm a seven-year “peace” covenant (Daniel 9, 11) dividing Israel.

The signs are many, these days.

"Wow...that Susan Rice. What a powerhouse in the UN, eh?

Did you see her stutter? The woman carries no sense of authority when she speaks. She was also pretty obvious about Obama being unhappy about this particular vote and the process. She said 0 wants "direct talks" and a "two state solution" (as when he tried to arm twist Bibi with in the past over the 67' borders).

Looks like Obama had his thunder stolen today. Bet he can barely wait for another day to attempt to divide Israel and do it all his way.

P.S. ONE "STATE"/ONE NATION:ISRAEL!
