U.N. Security Council / AP

The United Nations Security Council voted on Tuesday to reject a resolution that would have called for the establishment of a Palestinian state by 2017.

The resolution, which would have called for an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria and the establishment of a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, came just one vote short of passing, according to an Israel Hayomreport.

The resolution needed nine votes in favor (out of 15) to pass. It fell one vote short, obtaining eight votes in favor (Russia, China, France, Jordan, Chad, Luxembourg, Argentina and Chile), two against (the United States and Australia), and five abstentions (Britain, Rwanda, Nigeria, Lithuania and South Korea). However, even if the resolution had passed, the U.S. would have vetoed it.

Before the vote, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with the leaders of three of the nations that ended up abstaining, including Rwanda and Nigeria, and asked them to not vote in favor of the Palestinian resolution.

On Wednesday morning, Netanyahu said, “I want to express appreciation and thanks to the U.S. and Australia, and also special appreciation to the president of Rwanda, my friend Paul Kagame, and the president of Nigeria, my friend Goodluck Jonathan. I spoke with both of them. They personally promised me they would not support this resolution. They stood by their word, and that is what decided this battle. This was very important for the State of Israel.”

Israeli officials at the U.N. called the resolution “a preposterous unilateral proposal.”

I'm glad it went this way, but to be honest I was fearful about the US being Muslim Obama is president?

Some GREAT NEWS to start 2015 with!

This is starting off the New Years Right. GREAT NEWS

God is always in charge. God Bless Israel!

Great news!  But they lost the resolution by one vote!  Who are these pompous bastards to tell Israel they would have to give up land so the pali's could move in and destroy it and keep on lobbing missiles at Israel. 

I'm not up on this as I should be.. but why hasn't anyone demanded that Egypt or Jordan give up some of their land for the Palestinians?    

This article was originally written in 1999, but has since been up-dated and current.

The Palestinian cause has been used as a diversionary tactic for a long time, since the 1960s, to call attention away from the Arabs being realistic, responsible, and cleaning up their own crap: abuse of their own people. The Palestinians have been used and abused by their leaders (and leaders from other nations), kept in poverty with little work, and no education - aside from teaching hatred of the Jews as the scapegoat for their problems. The hatred of Jews and Israel isn't the cause of their misery. The Palestinians are the cause of their own misery because they keep rejecting the offer to have their own state and accept Israel's existence. The issue is also about how the Arabs and Muslims  treat Arabs and Muslims. An orchestrated and united anger and hatred is the fuel that keeps the Arabs and Muslims under control and without the ability to see what's really happening and who's truly responsible for it. They have been so brainwashed they are unable to see the truth. Until they can remove the veils from their faces (and I mean both men and women) and see truth there can be no positive change.
  • Israel is the only country in the Middle East that is a democracy, has equal rights for all of its citizens (including women, Jew and Arab, and homosexuals), and the only one that has a free press.

Wow! Actually some good news for Israel? At least they don't have to take on the entire World to keep their country in tact....yet

Finally, a ray of sunshine in this dark world. (No, that was NOT meant to be a racist remark!)

We need to reject the united nations. It is currently made up of our enemies.

ITS ABOUT THE ONLY POSITIVE THING TO COME OUT OF THE U.N. IN YEARS...PALESTINE SHOULD BE BOMBED BACK INTO THE STONEAGE FOR THEIR TERRORISTS ACTIVITIES AND ASSOCIATIONS.

Thank G-d the US did not vote against Israel.

-Genesis 12:3

Thankfully we have people in government who understand the importance of backing Israel.

Why should there be a "Palestinian" state?

The Fall Of Fake News!! Quiet Shake-Up At MSNBC After Station Hemorrhages Viewers Following Mueller Debacle 

Reports are surfacing about a quiet shake-up of personnel at MSNBC after the cable news station lost more than 30% of their audience after the Mueller debacle.

Apparently MNSBC doesn’t think their financial woes are newsworthy given that they didn’t run any breathless stories about their own failings.

News of MSNBC’s collapse can’t come as a surprise to insiders who undoubtedly are fully aware that their audience no longer trusts them.

One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year.

MSNBC viewers were asked: How much do you agree that MSNBC regularly reports made up or fake news about Donald Trump and his administration?

The responses were devastating! While 35% or respondents agree that MSNBC pushes Fake News, only 24% disagreed. That’s a ratings death sentence!

What do you expect from a channel that boasts disgraced liar, Brian Williams, and race pimp, Al Sharpton?

MAJOR SHAKEUP AT MSNBC - Ratings crater after Mueller Report Debacle!

Flashback: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plummet To Yearly Low

MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week.

Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

She spent two years dissecting every aspect of the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. The night Mueller submitted his findings to Barr, Maddow appeared to hold back tears over the fact that neither the president nor any family members were indicted.

Compared to Maddow’s low ratings last week, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, whose program is often the most-watched among all cable news shows, averaged 3,108,000 viewers with just under half-a-million viewers in the key demographic.

She also nearly tripled CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s weekly ratings. His program only had 880,000 viewers with 225,000 in the key demo.
