- Holy See: Peace is
Possible in Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
(Vatican Radio) The Permanent Observer to United Nations Archbishop
Ivan Jurkovic has offered an intervention at the United Nations
International Conference in Support of Israeli-Palestinian Peace.
- The Holy See believes
that the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians can
move forward only if it is directly negotiated between the Parties,
Archbishop Jurkovic said, with the strong support of the international
community, as this international conference is meant to catalyze.
- He re-affirmed the Holy Sees
support for a two-state solution, citing affirmations
of Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.
- However, Archbishop Jurkovic
said, the Holy See also believes that the whole peace process
does not depend solely on formal negotiations, no matter how
indispensable these are. He insisted, Peace cannot
be achieved if healing and reconciliation, mutual recognition
and respect at the personal and communitarian levels do not accompany
- He also noted the importance
of religions and believers in the peace process in the region:
They must put an end to mutual hatred that is lending credence
to a clash of civilizations. The Holy See,
he said, reiterates its appeal to all religious leaders
to denounce and reject every spurious form and perversion of
religion to foment violence, and to hold on to the conviction
that peace is not only possible and desirable, but is our common
call and duty.

the Delegation of the Holy See to the United Nations International
Conference in Support of Israeli-Palestinian Peace:

- Mr. Chair,

Rights of the Palestinian People for organizing this conference
to consider lessons learned from past Peace Conferences, build
upon achievements, however modest they might have been, and identify
new ideas in the emerging approaches, in order to provide an
ever stronger international support to the Israeli-Palestinian
- The Palestinian Question has
been asked, and remains unsatisfactorily answered since the birth
of the United Nations. Almost sixty-nine years after its adoption
by the United Nations General Assembly, Resolution 181 remains
only half-fulfilled. Decades of negotiations have failed to achieve
the creation of a Palestinian State. Continued: http://www.news.va/en/news/holy-see-peace-is-possible-in-israeli-palestinian

- Abbas Says Cairo Peace
Summit only after Settlement Freeze
- Palestinian preconditions include talks
on basis of pre-1967 lines, set timetable; Netanyahu said open
to meeting Abbas under Egyptian aegis
- By Avi Issacharoff - July
- Palestinian leaders have presented
several preconditions for participating in a trilateral Israeli-Egyptian-Palestinian
peace summit in Cairo, including a freeze on Israeli settlement
construction, a Palestinian official told The Times of Israel.
- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
on Sunday reportedly told Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry
he would be willing to meet with Palestinian Authority President
Mahmoud Abbas in Cairo for talks hosted by President Abdel-Fattah
el-Sissi. The Prime Ministers Office did not deny the report
by the Saudi-owned, pan-Arab news outlet Al-Arabiya. It said
in a statement that whether the issue was discussed or not, Israel
has always said it is prepared to conduct direct bilateral negotiations
with no preconditions.
- The senior Palestinian official
said Tuesday that Abbas had conditioned his participation on
Israel agreeing to stop settlement construction and accepting
a set timeline for negotiations. Israel would also have to acquiesce
to negotiations based on the pre-1967 lines and pledge ahead
of time to implement any agreements reached in the talks. A senior
Egyptian official told The Times of Israel on Tuesday that Egypt
was seeking a formula for renewal of negotiation that would be
accepted by both sides. The official said it might be too early
to invite both sides to a summit, since the sides did not yet
agree about the goals of the talks. Continued:

- Jordan's King Israel Blatantly Changing
Jerusalem Status Quo
- In interview, Abdullah also
argues that Palestinian-Israeli conflict feeds extremism in the
- By Dov Lieber - August 15,
2016, 12:23 pm
- The Jordanian king accused
Israel on Monday of blatantly changing the status quo
at important landmarks and heritage sites in Jerusalem, and restricting
the rights of the capital's Arab residents. He also charged that
the perpetuation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict fuels extremism
in the region.
- In an interview with the Jordanian
newspaper al-Dastur that focused mainly on upcoming parliamentary
elections, the Islamic State group and the economic burden posed
by Syrian refugees, Abdullah II was also asked what tools his
country had to wield against "Israeli violations"
in Jerusalem and its holy sites.
- "We are continuously
dealing with these recurring violations and attacks carried out
by Israel and extremist groups, and the blatant attempts to change
the status quo in Jerusalem, at its landmarks, its heritage sites
and historical identity," the king responded.
- He added that his nation is
also working to counter Israeli 'violations of the rights' of
Arab residents, a crackdown against them and their displacement."
- The king did not specify the
Al Aqsa Mosque when addressing alleged Israeli attempts to change
the status quo at the sensitive holy place. The Palestinians
have accused Israel of trying to take over the site, a charge
Israel has repeatedly and vehemently denied.
- However, Abdullah did say
his country would continue its "historical and religious"
duty at the Temple Mount " known as the Haram al Sharif
by Muslims "by defending it from what he called 'repeated
stormings' by extremist Jews, and by opposing attempts
"to divide the al Aqsa Mosque temporally or spatially."
- Visits by right-wing religious
Jews, some of whom support the changing of the status quo at
the holy site by allowing Jewish prayer there, are seen as "stormings"
of the Mount by Palestinians, and have resulted in frequent clashes
- The monarch said his country
would use all legal and political means to pressure Israel on
the Jerusalem issue, including United Nations resolutions.
- The Jordanian leader was also
asked if he thought the opportunity for a two-state solution
to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had passed, especially as
"stormy conditions" in the region have diverted attention
from the conflict in the Holy Land.
- While he didn't indicate he
thought the two-state solution was dead, Abdullah called the
Palestinian issue his nation's top priority and the conflict's
resolution a matter of 'supreme national interest.'
- Failure to resolve the conflict
through a two-state solution 'is feeding violence and extremism
in the region' the king said'

Middle East peace talks
- AFP - August 24, 2016 - Banner
Icon Israel-Palestine Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi
said his Russian counterpart and close ally Vladimir Putin wants
to host an Israeli-Palestinian summit to revive peace talks,
in an interview published Monday.
- Sisi told state newspaper
editors that he believed Israel was increasingly convinced of
the need for a peace deal, saying it was a "positive sign."
- But Palestinian infighting
between the Islamist Hamas rulers of Gaza and Palestinian president
Mahmud Abbas's Fatah in the West Bank remained an obstacle, he
said in the interview.
- Talks between Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Abbas have been suspended since
2014, despite a push by Washington and France to resume the peace
- Sisi, who is seen as having
good ties with both Israel and Abbas's Palestinian Authority,
has also been pushing for a resumption of negotiations.
- "Putin has told me that
he is ready to receive both (Abbas) and Netanyahu in Moscow to
carry out direct talks to find a solution and solve the issue,"
Sisi said. http://www.yourmiddleeast.com/news/egypts-sisi-says-putin-ready-to-host-middle-east-peace-talks_42385

Summit; Palestinians Demand Preconditions
Jordanian Report: by Ruthie Blum - August 28, 2016
According to a report in the Jordanian press, Israel has agreed
to a US-initiated three-way peace summit, while the Palestinian
Authority is demanding preconditions, Israels Channel 10
reported on Sunday.
- The government-owned newspaper
Al Rai reported that the administration in Washington recently
proposed the renewal of talks between Israel and the PA under
its auspices. However, said the report based on statements
made by a PLO Executive Committee member while Israel
insisted that these be held with no preconditions, the PA said
it would only consent if Israel first halted settlement construction
and released another tranche of convicts.
- We welcome any activity
whose goal is to move the political process forward, but there
are conditions that Israel has to fulfill in order for the meeting
not to deal solely with economic relations, said Wassel
Abu Yousef. We are currently interested in progress along
the lines of the French initiative. http://www.algemeiner.com/2016/08/28/jordanian-report-israel-agrees-to-us-initiated-peace-summit-palestinians-demand-preconditions/

with all countries to accept Global Debt forgiveness. They supposedly
are getting a lot of resistance by countries to accept this proposition.
Cindy claims to have investigated M1 and found it to be true.
- Wouldn't it be a <strong>huge
temptation</strong> for all to have all their debts forgiven
and more, if offered such by M1 who is obviously not King of
Kings because that is Jesus Christ's title.

- Netanyahu and Abbas to hold first official
talks in 6 years in Moscow
- By The Jerusalem Connection
| Sep 9, 2016 | By Herb Keinon, JPost
- The Middle East diplomatic
process may be moving north. Russias Foreign Ministry announced
on Thursday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian
Authority President Mahmoud Abbas have agreed in principle
to meet in Moscow. The announcement by Russian Foreign Ministry
spokeswoman Maria Zakharova at a weekly news conference culminates
a week of mixed signals from Jerusalem and Ramallah, regarding
a meeting under the auspices of Russias President Vladimir
- Both Netanyahu and Abbas have
said throughout the week that they were interested, but that
the other side was putting up obstacles.
- Zakharova said that the main
thing now is to choose the right moment for
the meeting. Intensive contacts on this matter are continuing,
- Although Netanyahu said earlier
in the week in The Hague that he would be willing to meet in
Moscow if the Palestinians did not put any preconditions on the
talks, there was no word from his office following the Russian
Foreign Ministry statement regarding the matter.
- Palestinian officials said
early in the week as well that Abbas was willing to hold talks
- Putins special Mideast
envoy, Mikhail Bogdanov, was in the region this week and held
talks with both Netanyahu and senior PA officials in Jerusalem
and Ramallah about the idea.
Noting that US mediation efforts of 2013-2014 failed, Zakharova
said that Moscow is convinced of the need to resume the
negotiation process in order to normalize the situation,
and find a compromise solution on the basis of international
law. She said that the continuing deadlock is a cause of
great concern, and leads to a steady deterioration
of the situation on the ground.

- Speaking in front of the press
before their meeting at a hotel in Manhattan, the two leaders
broadcast an extremely friendly vibe, sweeping under the rug
years of a famously testy relationship.
- But along with the smiles,
Obama indicated that in their private talks he would push Netanyahu
on ways to get back to the negotiating table with the Palestinians
and curbing settlement activity in the West Bank.
- Senior US officials said the
private part of the meeting lasted a little over half an hour
and Obama was more pointed, raising profound US concerns
that settlement-building was eroding prospects for peace.
- Netanyahu challenged that
notion, said one official, adding that the two leaders had not
papered over their differences.
- But in public, the two were
all smiles, only briefly mentioning peace efforts and other divisive
issues. The word Iran, a country whose nuclear program
has been the source of considerable friction between them, was
not mentioned once.

- EDITORS NOTE: The word
Jerusalem occurs 811 times in 764 verses in the KJV.
The Bible says that King David, Israels greatest king,
reigned over Israel from its capital city of Jerusalem.
Not one time, ever in the entire Bible, do we see any Muslims
having anything to do with Jerusalem. From start to finish, Jerusalem
is 100% Jewish and belonging to Israel. That the United Nations
in 2016 would declare it to be 100% Muslim is clear
evidence of the demonic nature of the UN and UNESCO.
- The United Nations Educational,
Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) renewed the resolutions
that criticized Israel for what it says are its policies that
restrict Muslim access to a site considered holy by both Jews
and Muslims in Jerusalems Old City.

and Muslims alike, known to Jews as Temple Mount and to Muslims
as the al-Aqsa compound or Haram al-Sharif (which is the Arabic
translation for Noble Sanctuary).

| Oct 13, 2016 | By Jenna Lifhits, Weekly Standard -
- The Obama administration is
manufacturing a crisis with Israel in anticipation of a post-election
diplomatic push targeting the Jewish state, and this past week
launched a series of broadsides criticizing the Israelis through
the media and in press briefings, according to congressional
sources and Jewish-American officials who spoke to THE WEEKLY
- The White House and State
Department lashed out after the Israelis advanced plans to build
in areas the administration considers to be off-limits to new
Israeli construction, using language that reporters noted is
usually reserved for terror attacks.
- Asked by journalists why the
administration stated that it strongly condemn[ed]
Israels plans to advance construction, a phrase ordinarily
used to denounce acts of terrorism, White House spokesman
Josh Earnest replied that the construction provoke[s] strong
feelings in the administration. In that briefing, Earnest
also suggested that Israel betrayed commitments to Washington,
while a State Department official separately said Israel would
perpetual occupation if it built
- The latest controversy revolves
around construction that the Israelis say is within the already
existing Israeli neighborhood Shilo, but that the administration
says constitutes a new settlement. Congressional officials who
spoke to TWS said that the administrations condemnation
is a pretext for eroding relations with Israel and potentially
for setting up a broader diplomatic offensive.
- Theyre launching
this weird, aggressive campaign that simply will have no positive
outcome, a senior congressional source told TWS. Its
not an accident that all of this has been going on as Congress
goes into recess [and] as attention is diverted by the election.
- The source said that while
the administration has engaged in similar behavior against Israel
in the past, this case appeared far more coordinated and
- The president is in
the market for a legacy, the source continued. Im
very concerned that hes going to do something that he considers
to be dramatic, just to get his name on the process.
- Another congressional source
told TWS that President Obama has been waiting for an opening
to condemn Israel.

With the help of a prepared speech (written with a healthy dose
of input by his son-in-law, the Jewish developer and newspaper
owner Jared Kushner, and Ron Dermer, Israels ambassador
to the U.S.), a pair of teleprompters and talking points pulled
from the AIPAC playbook all a departure from his usual
free-verse style Trump hit a homerun.
- When I become president,
the days of treating Israel like a second-class citizen will
end on day one, he said, to applause. I will meet
with Prime Minister Netanyahu immediately. I have known him for
many years and well be able to work closely together to
help bring stability and peace to Israel and to the entire region.
- He also spoke more harshly,
albeit confusingly, about the Iran deal than he had previously,
promising first to dismantle the disastrous deal
and then vowing to enforce it like youve never seen
a contract enforced before. He called U.S. President Barack
Obama possibly the worst thing to ever happen to Israel,
and righted his wrong at the RJC meeting a few months earlier:
We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital
of the Jewish people, Jerusalem, he said.
- The performance was enough
to at least temporarily quiet the concerns of the Jewish Republican
establishment, though Trump failed to subsequently capture the
Jewish vote in the New York primary a few weeks later, even as
he won the state overall.
- And despite his careful concessions
to pro-Israel rhetoric at AIPAC, he curiously and perhaps somewhat
defiantly hasnt stopped championing his neutrality when
it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. http://www.haaretz.com/world-news/u-s-election-2016/1.720213
- Why Donald Trump Could Be the Most Pro-Israel
President in a Generation
- By Jason Howerton | November
17, 2016 | There is still plenty of uncertainty surrounding what
exactly a Trump administration will look like, but one thing
is not up for debate: Donald Trump could be the most pro-Israel
commander in chief in modern history.
- Jewish state has long held
a special relationship with the United States, however
that relationship has been put under immense strain by the Obama
administration's controversial policies toward Israel. The outgoing
administration has regularly clashed with the leaders of the
Jewish State, demanding territorial concessions to the Hamas-led
Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, bluntly snubbing Netanyahu in
the White House, brokering the deeply unpopular Iran Nuclear
Deal and refusing to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, a huge
victory for the Palestinian State which lays claim to the Holy
City. The policies of the Obama administration have led scholars
to ask if Israel-US relations have reached a new low?
- Assuming the Trump Administration
intends to follow through on his campaign rhetoric toward the
Jewish State, the President-elect has positioned himself to reverse
the Obama chilling effect and become perhaps the most staunchly
pro-Israel President in the history of the White House.
- Here are a few concrete reasons
- The highest ranking members of the right-leaning
Israeli Government are thrilled by Trump's victory
- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu is clearly a fan of the Donald. He offered glowing
words of praise for Trump and vowed to work closely with his
