The Paris peace summit, at which neither Israel nor the Palestinians sent a representative, was “like having marriage counseling with neither the husband nor the wife present,” a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told BBC. Echoing Netanyahu’s sentiments, David Keyes said the conference, which was attended by foreign ministers of more than 70 nations with the aim of resuming the moribund peace process toward a two-state solution, was a “relic of the past” and “futile.”
Keyes said the obstacle to peace has nothing to do with Israeli policies or Netanyahu, and that the blame lay squarely on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
“He said no to recognizing Israel as a Jewish state. He said no to direct negotiations with Israel. And frankly, he said no to stopping the glorification of murderers and the horrific hate speech which is indoctrinating children from a very young age.”
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshonthat the confab, which was attended by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, “turned as flat as a failed soufflé.”
“A big show is no replacement for direct negotiations between the parties.”
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas praised the final communique of the Paris peace summit on Sunday, saying it “reaffirmed” the recent UN Security Council resolution attacking Israeli settlements.
The United Nations was created in the aftermath of World War 2 to prevent future world wars and to create a venue where disagreeing nations could voice their grievances without resulting in bloodshed. It even states in it preamble, “to ensure, by the acceptance of principles and the institution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common interest.”
Along with the phrase “to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and nations large and small.” In those two respects at least this Paris Summit remains and always will continue to be a dismal failure.
Since the establishment of the Jewish State in 1948, the Arab nations in the region have united under one goal, the destruction of Israel. 1948, 1967, 1972 and since Israel has shown that military aggression on the part of the Arabs will not destroy Israel. Decades upon decades of terrorist attacks in Israel and around the world likewise has not brought destruction either.
So the Arab world has changed tactics. Where bombs and bullets in the streets have not worked, they are trying bribery and treachery in back rooms. The Arab world has used economic blackmail and other avenues to bring about its objectives.
Slowly, it seems the international tide is starting to turn against the state. From boardroom antics and control the Main Stream Media now ignores the treachery of the PLO, Hamas, and Hezbollah and focuses on perceived and invented atrocities by Israel. Arabs can kill scores of innocents on a bus in Tel Aviv without press coverage, but a Palestinian teen shot by IDF forces he was attacking makes the evening in HD quality pictures and videos.
We even now have politicians and elected leaders in the West making deals with those that have publicly made it their goal to destroy Israel and kill all of her citizens in a second Holocaust. President Obama providedand . Obama now provides in our names. Even a blind man can see that these decisions were not the acts of an ally or a peacemaker, but the actions of a leader determined to bring Israel to her feet and allow a death blow.
Still, the Jewish state remains defiant. The spirit of her leadership and people remain steadfast. The United States has for the last sixty years lucked out with an ally in the region as faithful as the Israeli State. However, how long will that remain?
Could in the future, an Israel tired of betrayal at the hands of the United States seek friendship with a global power opposed to the United States? Years of deception and arrogance sees a longtime ally in the Philippines move into the Chinese sphere of Influence. Many of our Central and South American neighbors likewise now look more favorably to Beijing than to Washington. Could Tel Aviv see the benefit in a closer relationship with the growing Chinese power over the hot and cold relationship of the United States?
India or Russia, two other international powers that seek to challenge the Citadel of Democracy for world dominance could also vie to seek out the favors of Israel. Smart nations know that the support of a faithful ally can give any power added strength in the region. America by betraying Israel very likely hurts its interest in the area.
The Paris Summit seeks to legitimize the destruction of Israel by the Arab world through a death of a 1,000 paper cuts. The summit will only concentrate on the perceived wrongs at the hands of Israel all while ignoring that any act on behalf of Israel was the direct result of naked Arab aggression.
Israel will not bend to such an insult. She will destroy Iran’s nuclear ambitions just as she destroyed Iraq’s. She will do it alone should it become necessary. Israel will not bow to the pressures of a bad deal imposed on her by puppets of OPEC money and Islamic Fundamental Terror. It is arguable that Israel alone stands between freedom and the oppressive Hijab of the World Caliphate.
The spirit and determination ring through in the Israeli national anthem. Whether one attributes the success of the Israeli state to divine intervention or to a spirit that overcomes the vilest of atrocities the world can heap on them, their anthem says all that we need to know about the outcome of the Paris summit:
As long as the Jewish spirit is yearning deep in the heart,
With eyes turned toward the East, looking toward Zion,
Then our hope – the two-thousand-year-old hope – will not be lost:
To be a free people in our land,
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
