Netanyahu: Islamic extremists to the suburbs of Tel Aviv and to the heart of Jerusalem. We will not allow this. We will rebuff this forcefully and responsibly. Let there be no doubt, this will be rejected
The Obama administration is shamelessly outsourcing the United States’ historic leadership in facilitating negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel of a workable, secure two-state solution to the United Nations and European governments. In putting its trust in these two centers of anti-Israel sentiment, the Obama administration refuses to say categorically that it would veto a UN Security Council resolution setting some sort of deadline for the creation of a Palestinian state and Israeli withdrawal to the pre-June 1967 lines.
In the words of an unnamed senior U.S. State Department official quoted by Reuters, “These things are all very much in flux, it’s not as if we’re being asked to take a position on any particular Security Council resolution right now. It would be premature for us to discuss documents that are of uncertain status right now.”
Any Security Council resolution the Obama administration would agree to, which imposes pressure only on Israel to make more unilateral concessions for an illusionary “peace,” will serve to legitimize a United Nations timetable for Israel’s surrender to forces that wish to destroy it. The Gaza debacle following Israel’s decision to unilaterally withdraw from Gaza in 2005 and give the Palestinians a chance to build a prototype Palestinian state illustrates the danger Israel would face from being pressured into more withdrawals at this time.
The Palestinian Authority leadership is pressing for action on just such a Security Council resolution as early as this Wednesday, according to a Palestine Liberation Organization official and Palestinian UN Ambassador Riyad Mansour. The Palestinian resolution, to be sponsored by Jordan (a non-permanent member of the Security Council), would reportedly set a two year deadline for complete Israeli withdrawal from all “occupied” territories, although Jordan’s UN ambassador told reporters it was news to her that any action to vote on the resolution would be taken as soon as the Palestinians are demanding. There is some speculation amongst UN insiders that a vote on a Palestinian resolution could be put off until early in the new year. The Security Council makeup will then be even more inclined towards the Palestinian position, because Malaysia will be replacing South Korea as a non-permanent member of the Security Council.

Excellent Post, Kristi!
Stand strong Israel, Tell the UN and Obama to F--k themselves. Most of Americans support you `and dont support Obama or the UN we dont even want either in our country. Until Obozo is gone you need to get support from Russia or China. You can not trust the U.S. under our present administration.
Obama hates Israel. In fact, he hates America and the concept of freedom.
Americans stand with you Israel. I agree, the UN and Obama and his administration can go play with themselves. Say the word and many of us will be there with you to kick some Muslim ass. Don't give an inch to these assholes!
May G-d protect the good people of Israel!
No Nation has any business interfering in the security of Israel. They are a sovereign state and I do not understand the audacity of governments trying to tell Israel what to do, especially the US. Israel is the only free democratic Country in that part of the World. What does anybody not understand about protecting one's self? Israel has that right.
We need to support Israel. They are our long supportive allies and have stood with us in every strife we have had. Obama is a Muslim and, being so, cannot be trusted to treat Israel fairly. This is a Christian Nation and as such, we support our god and his chosen people. Screw the UN and Obama and his administration. Stand strong Israel, we are with you!
Why the hell are we in this UN? UN, stands for undoing, and everything else UN. If he pulls this off, we have met the anti-christ.
When Obama said "There must never be another Holocaust", he was just as sincere as when he said "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan".
How is it that my brain-dead fellow Jews never picked up on this!
Get the US OUT of the UN and the UN OUT of the US. They are not a friendly organization any longer.
Just hang on tight and watch what God does to the enemies of Israel. It wont be pretty.
