UN Palestinian resolution demonstrates loss of faith


By Chuck Morse – the author of The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism, published by WND Books.

Many western democracies are likely to vote this Thursday in favor of UN recognition of a Palestinian state. This vote would represent a loss of faith on the part of the ruling elites of these nations. This loss of faith also applies to the ruling elites of Arab and Islamic nations as well.

Any call for an Arab state to be carved out of the tiny state of present-day Israel, which would reduce Israel to a rump frontier surrounded by enemies, runs contrary to Jewish Christian and Islamic traditions. This is due to the fact that the three great western faiths recognize Israel as the land that the Almighty promised to the Jews through the patriarchs Abraham Isaac and Jacob. That promise was renewed throughout the Bible and was confirmed by both Jesus and Muhammad.

The Torah recognizes Israel as a covenantal land. The borders of that tiny speck of land, which are precisely delineated in the Bible, constitute the exact borders of modern-day Israel. Thus the covenant between the Almighty and Israel is, as such, recognized by both Jews by and Christians.

The covenant between the Almighty and the children of Israel was also recognized by Islam. The Qur’an, drawing from the Torah and referring to the People of the Book (Jews), calls for the Jews to reassert their sovereignty over Israel as a means of setting the stage for the final judgment of mankind:

“…the words of Moses to his people (the Israelites). He said: ‘Remember, my people (the Israelites) the favors, which Allah has bestowed upon you...Enter, my people, the Holy Land which Allah has assigned for you.” (Sura 5)

“And, therefore, We {Allah} said to the children of Israel: ‘Dwell securely in the Promised Land.’ And when the last warning will come to pass, We {Allah} will gather you (the children of Israel) together (in Israel) in a mingled crowd.” (Sura 17:104)

The three western faiths have a spiritual investment in ensuring the continuation of the State of Israel as a Jewish state. How then would the non-Jewish Arab populations of Judaea Samaria and Gaza achieve justice and peace within Israel? The only practical answer to this vexing question would be for the Palestinian Authority to accept regional sovereignty within Israel, a sovereignty that might include an affiliation with Jordan. The Kingdom of Jordan was originally the eastern Arab portion of Palestine. Within this context, the Palestinian Arabs of Israel would then be free to prosper in a stable democracy and to interact with over 20 sovereign Arab states, many of which are oil and mineral rich and which contain vast lands and considerable resources.

Mahmud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, is presently attempting to conduct an end-run around Israel by appealing to the New World Order structure that is emerging as a part of the United Nations. Abbas seeks to utilize what he hopes are newly invigorated international laws, under the auspices of the UN, to criminalize Israel and to prosecute Israeli citizens with the advocacy of this resolution. Abbas, in this regard, is appealing to the many globalists who make up much of the world’s ruling elite.

By doing so, Abbas demonstrates the same lack of faith as do the globalists who are receptive to his argument. The Bible, which serves as the foundation of faith for Jews and Christians and which is revered by Muslims warns humanity to avoid globalist schemes. The attempt to establish a world government was the sin committed when, in the Book of Genesis, Nimrod attempted to build a tower as a means of conquering the world and subduing heaven. The Almighty responded to the sin by destroying the Tower of Babel and casting man to the four corners of the world. The Almighty established different languages and, by doing so, set man on the path toward the development of the separate and sovereign nation state.

The Torah, and emanating from its teachings elements of both Christian and Islamic law, instructs nations in the rules of engagement. As such, the Israelis and the Palestinian Arabs should be left to their own devises in terms of resolving their own problems. Any resolution should consider the faith of the three great religions and their teachings of the spiritual destiny of man. In accord with the rights of nations, the UN should stay out.
