During the Washington D.C. Kalachakra ritual there was a vitally important meeting being held, with potentially global consequences.
As the Dalai Lama conducted his witchcraft in the city to bring about a change in the “age” there was another meeting taking place: with the United Nations, European Union, Russian, and American delegates – known as the Quartet, to discuss the way forward with regards to Israel.
In the meeting they proposed a plan to re-establish Israel’s borders along pre-1967 lines. This would mean the UN seizing half the Israeli land, including East Jerusalem, to establish a Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem as the capitol.
The Quartet decided on a United Nation Security Council Meeting to discuss the proposals on July 26th. For land to be seized it would require a UN resolution to be voted upon. Within the UN five nations have veto rights, these are: USA, Britain, China, France, and Russia. President Obama has already spoken about his wish to see Israel’s borders set at pre-1967 lines, in his May 19th speech on the Middle East.
If the resolution is passed they plan to seize the land in September of this year. Israel would most likely refuse to recognise such a vote, thus when Palestine declares independence in September, a bloody war could ensue.
However, under previous United Nations Security Council Resolutions such a vote ought to be illegal. The Washington Times, writes, “A unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood would be an illegal act that would violate the letter and the spirit of U.N. Security Council Resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973). Those binding resolutions called for a negotiated settlement of the dispute with Israel with ‘secure and recognized boundaries.'” This is because the pre-1967 borders were simply militarily indefensible. For the borders to be set along these lines again would leave Israel utterly unprotected.
One of the problems lies with the apparent inability of the progressive liberal left to understand that for many Arabs, the very existence of Israel is the problem. There are many Palestinians who will never recognize Israel’s right to exist, so leaving Israel with no way to defend her borders could jeopardize the very existence of Israel itself.
Furthermore, the Palestinian authority are also seeking September membership into the United Nations, in doing so they would be recognized as an independent state with East Jerusalem as it’s capitol.
To avert a war in Israel this September, any such plans must be vetoed, however Obama looks increasingly unlikely to take such a step. President Obama wrote in his book “I will stand with [Muslims] if the political winds shift in an ugly direction”.
Palestinian President Abbas, has also said, “President Obama says he wants to see an independent Palestinian state by September.” The Palestinian mood is optimistic, they see this is the best time to make their move, side-stepping any talks with Israel. Israel say they would re-enter talks with the Palestinians tomorrow, however the Palestinians are refusing to come to the negotiating table.
The coming few weeks are vital for the very existence of Israel. Those who think this move by the Quartet will bring peace to Israel, are very much mistaken. This is the time to, “pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”
