136 Nations Recognize A Palestinian State – Only Obama Stands In The Way Of Full Global Recognition

Countries That Officially Recognize A Palestinian State - Photo by Night w

Will a UN Security Council resolution formally recognizing the establishment of a Palestinian state be passed by the end of 2015? Now that the Vatican has formally recognized a Palestinian state, there is a tremendous amount of international momentum for precisely such a UN Security Council resolution. In fact, France plans to push really hard for one by the end of this year. At this point, the only thing that could derail those plans is Barack Obama. For years, the threat of a Security Council veto has been the one thing stopping a resolution from moving forward. But now that Benjamin Netanyahu has been re-elected and has put together a cabinet that does not seem inclined to negotiate with the Palestinians, the Obama administration is pledging to “reevaluate our approach” and says that it will not “prejudge” what it will do if a vote comes up at the United Nations. And as you will see below, one news source is now reporting that behind the scenes Barack Obama has already given the “green light” for France to go ahead with a resolution on a Palestinian state at the UN. If this is truly what Obama plans to do, it will absolutely shatter U.S. relations with Israel and plunge the entire Middle East into chaos.

Most Americans don’t realize this, but 136 countries already formally recognize a Palestinian state. Those 136 nations have a combined population of more than 5.5 billion people.

As of this moment, the major holdouts are the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe. But most of the European nations have already indicated that they are ready to recognize a Palestinian state if the United States will. In fact, as I mentioned above, France plans to lead the push for a Palestinian state at the UN Security Council.

The “State of Palestine” already has “non-member observer” status at the UN, but obviously they are not satisfied with that. They have been very eager for formal recognition by the UN, and now that the Vatican has given them formal recognition that has really bolstered their cause. The following is from a CNN article about the Vatican announcement that stunned the world on Wednesday…

The Vatican announced Wednesday that it had brokered a treaty with the “state of Palestine,” upsetting Israeli advocates and propelling Pope Francis into the heart of yet another geopolitical fray.

The treaty is expected to be signed “in the near future,” the Vatican said. Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, is scheduled to visit Pope Francis on Saturday, the day before the church canonizes two Palestinian nuns.

The treaty is thought to mark the first time the Holy See has formally recognized Palestinian statehood in a legal document.

Of course this didn’t come out of a vacuum. The truth is that the Vatican has been moving in this direction for quite some time. Just consider what the Washington Post had to say about the matter…

The move should not be too great a surprise. Since the U.N. General Assembly voted to recognize Palestine as a “non-member observer state” in 2012, the Vatican has referred to the “state of Palestine” in its communiques. When Pope Francis visited the Holy Land last year, the official Vatican program referred to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as the leader of the “state of Palestine.” And the pontiff publicly referred to the “state of Palestine” at a speech in the West Bank.

Now that the Vatican has done this, international pressure on Obama to support a UN Security Council resolution on a Palestinian state is increasing.

When the UN Security Council resolution being drafted by France comes up for a vote later this year, what will Obama do?

Well, according to Debka, Obama has already given the “green light” for France to move forward…

US President Barack Obama did not wait for Binyamin Netanyahu to finish building his new government coalition by its deadline at midnight Wednesday, May 6, before going into action to pay him back for forming a right-wing cabinet minus any moderate figure for resuming negotiations with the Palestinians.

Banking on Netanyahu’s assertion while campaigning for re-election that there would be no Palestinian state during his term in office, Obama is reported exclusively by our sources to have given the hitherto withheld green light to European governments to file a UN Security Council motion proclaiming an independent Palestinian state.

Not only that, Debka is also reporting that members of the Obama administration have actually traveled to France to help draft the resolution…

To show the administration was in earnest, senior US officials sat down with their French counterparts in Paris last week to sketch out the general outline of this motion. According to our sources, they began addressing such questions as the area of the Palestinian state, its borders, security arrangements between Israel and the Palestinians and whether or not to set a hard-and-fast timeline for implementation, or phrase the resolution as a general declaration of intent.

Incorporating a target date in the language would expose Israel to Security Council sanctions for non-compliance.

If what Debka is reporting is accurate, this represents a massive betrayal of Israel by the Obama administration.

However, the Jerusalem Post is reporting just the opposite. They are reporting that Obama plans to veto the French resolution…

US President Barack Obama has told associates that he intends to veto the French proposal for a UN Security Council resolution mandating the creation of a Palestinian state and an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank within two years, Channel 10 is reporting on Friday.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said this past March that Paris planned to start discussions with partners in the “coming weeks” on a United Nations Security Council resolution to lay out the parameters for ending the Middle East conflict.

“I hope that the partners who were reluctant will not be reluctant anymore,” said Fabius, referring to the United States, which has traditionally shielded its ally Israel from any action at the United Nations.

So what is the truth?

Only time will tell.

But what we do know is that Obama was absolutely furious when Netanyahu promised during his most recent campaign that there would not be a Palestinian state as long as he was in office.

And we do know that the Obama administration has pledged to “reevaluate our approach” and has said that it will not “prejudge what we would do if there was a U.N. action”

The U.S. would “reevaluate our approach” based on Netanyahu’s “change in his position,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters as the president flew to Cleveland to deliver a speech on economic policy.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki raised the possibility that the reevaluation could include a shift in position at the U.N. She avoided the usual U.S. language about vetoing Security Council resolutions that Israel opposes.

“The prime minister’s recent statements call into question his commitment to a two-state solution,” Psaki told reporters. “We’re not going to prejudge what we would do if there was a U.N. action.”

In the final analysis it is so hard to tell exactly what Obama will do, because as he has shown over and over again, lying comes as naturally to him as breathing does.

However, I think that we can get some clues about how obsessed Obama is with the establishment of a Palestinian state from public statements that he has made throughout his presidency. The following quotes from Barack Obama regarding the need for a Palestinian state come from one of my previous articles

#1 “Negotiations will be necessary, but there’s little secret about where they must lead: two states for two peoples”

#2 “And I think everybody understands the outlines of what a peace deal would look like, involving a territorial compromise on both sides based on ‘67 lines with mutually agreed upon swaps, that would ensure that Israel was secure but would also ensure that the Palestinians have a sovereign state in which they can achieve the aspirations that they’ve held for so long.”

#3 “The only way for Israel to endure and thrive as a Jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable Palestine”

#4 “Neither occupation nor expulsion is the answer. Just as Israelis built a state in their homeland, Palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land.”

#5 “Let me be clear: The United States strongly supports the goal of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security. That is a goal shared by Palestinians, Israelis, and people of goodwill around the world. That is a goal that the parties agreed to in the road map and at Annapolis. That is a goal that I will actively pursue as President of the United States.”

#6 “…we continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the long-term security of Israel, if it wants to stay both a Jewish state and democratic”

#7 “It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own, and lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements of her parents every single day.”

#8 “None of us are under any illusion that this would be easy. As I said in my speech this morning, it has already entailed significant political risk by President Abbas, as well as Prime Minister Netanyahu. But I think the reason that they’ve been willing to take those risks is they realize this is the best way, the only way, for us to achieve what should be our goal: two states living side-by-side in peace and security. It’s right for Palestinian children. It’s right for Israeli children.”

#9 “Just as the Israeli people have the right to live in the historic homeland of the Jewish people, the Palestinian people deserve the right to self-determination. Palestinian children have hopes and dreams for their future and deserve to live with the dignity that can only come with a state of their own.”

#10 “The only solution is a democratic, Jewish state living side-by-side in peace and security with a viable, independent Palestinian state.”

In the end, I believe that Barack Obama is going to choose to betray Israel at the United Nations, and it will have very serious ramifications that will literally be felt all over the planet.

  1. I believe, truly, that in order for the prophecies to continue to be fulfilled (as they quickly are being now) that Palestine will need to be recognized as a state/country, etc.

  2. i believe that biblical prophecy does not say that God intends to bring the Jews back into the promised land in order to form a secular state or even to form a Judaic state. What is says is that God intends to bring them back into the land in order to hammer them out on the anvil of Israel’s desserts into submitting to his covenant. What it doesn’t say clearly is which covenant God is talking about — the overarching Abrahamic Covenant, the Mosaic Covenant or the New Covenant. I believe God’s path is quite clear, however: the New Covenant, which the vast majority of Jews categorically reject, is the covenant God intends to bring them into.

    With God’s many statements about the return clear that he also intends to bring the Jewish people into submission to his covenant and with no statement anywhere that he would bring them into becoming a secular state, I don’t think modern Israel is his end goal. Modern Israel is what sinful Jews have created in defiance of God’s intentions to create an Israel that is all under Jesus as Messiah. So, today’s nations, in not allowing the secular state of Israel to have what it wants, are not necessarily opposing the will of God. They may, in fact, be carrying out the exact will of God.

    What if it is God’s will to bring Jews into the land precisely to teach them that they can never have what they want there without accepting the Promised Prince of that land? I would think that is FAR more important to him than just giving them land because they crave it. What if it is his will to teach them, by holding the carrot just out of reach, that they can never attain the Jewish state they envision under their own terms by their own power? And what if it is his will, therefore, to bring them to a state of desperation so great that they will eventually turn to their Messiah when he returns to them?

    What if God is pounding out a hard lesson in the deserts of Israel and using the nations of this world to do it … just as he has brought those nations against Israel in the past? That doesn’t mean that all nations that want to grant Palestinians a state within that land are against Jews or even against a state of Israel, but none are for the state that many Jews crave. Some are clearly against a Jewish state because they are driven by the hatred of anti-Semitism. Others are simply driven by a sense of fairness toward Palestinians with no animosity toward Jews at all.

    God clearly doesn’t approve of anti-Semitism, but he can allow it have its way and harness it toward achieving his will, though he will eventually judge anti-Semites. He can also use the desire some have to see a Palestinian state solely out of a sense of fairness to Palestinian Arabs. Both of those motivations can be harnessed in the same direction, which would be to deprive Jews of what they want — be it an entirely secular state or even a theocracy under the Mosaic Covenant.

    I think we have already seen that Jews are not able to hold onto as much of the land as they have grasped. If we say that God must have given the land to them in order for such a miracle to be achieved, then I think we must also say that the “the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away,” and for the past few decades, it’s been trickling away. I think that wouldn’t be happening if it were not God’s will that it go that way just as much as it was his will to bring Jewish people back to the land. It appears to me that God has given them just enough land to make them think the Greater Land of israel is within their reach, only to frustrate them by making it a constant mirage that fades into the distance as they strive toward it. That being the case, it would seem the lesson is that they cannot have the land by their own striving, AND they cannot have it just because they are Jews.

    So, those Christians who think that God brought Jews there to give them the land in their present state of unbelief may need to seriously rethink their thinking. Maybe God’s plans are not their plans.

  3. A Palastine state under what terms of government would that be?
    Would it be ISIS? Iran? Iraq? A government of honorable contract abiding people?
    Given the reputation as contract breakers, what bond would they put up as a value that they might forfeit if they are liars, thieves, and murderers of Jews and Christians after they form a government over Palestine?
    Because the religious beliefs of the people themselves are key here as to whether any contract and any government would actually work.
    Neither is this the first attempt of this people to do so with historic results.
    What does it take to make a contract with people like this?
    Maybe the world is right . . . Maybe we need to give them the opportunity to prove to the world that they are quite capable of governing themselves without violence or undue prejudice towards people with different views than themselves.
    When you have a hungry group of jackels or wolves in your midst, a certain amount of caution is always wise.
    Since one of the primary sponsors of the Obama regime out of New York was the Jewish Community, this would appear as a complete betrayal of that backing.
    I suggest they remove all political backing of the Obama regime immediately. I suggest that said removal also extend to any protection they may have given against legal actions against his Presidency.
    I think the Jewish People world wide have made a big mistake.
    Let us hope it does not cost them many lives.
