[Current world politics around Jerusalem. How this ties into the navi'im (biblical prophets) in a future article.]

Sultan Knish picks up on a US President Barak Obama demand to Israel from a speech Netanyahu made on Thursday.


Sultan Knish writes...Netanyahu is revealing some of Obama's demands. One of them demanded that the UN flag fly over the Kotel, or the Western Wall, which is the holiest site in Judaism.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu vowed at the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva in Jerusalem Thursday night that the Israeli flag will continue to fly over the Western Wall (Kotel). The first prime minister in years to appear at the venerable yeshiva on Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day), he ignored U.S. President Barack Obama’s apparent trial balloon that he wants to see the United Nations flag fly over the Old City holy sites.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II said the president put forward the proposal during his visit to the White House last month.

Prime Minister Netanyahu declared, "The flag that flies over the Kotel is the Israeli flag... Our holy places, the Temple Mount -- will remain under Israeli sovereignty forever.”

In his short but enthusiastic speech at the yeshiva, where an Arab terrorist slaughtered eight young students slightly more than a year ago, Prime Minister Netanyahu repeated his “Undivided Jerusalem” message.

The packed study hall of the yeshiva interrupted Prime Minister Netanyahu’s short speech several times with applause. The first clap of hands was in response to the statement that Israel’s capital “never will be divided again.” Jerusalem Day marks the day in the Six Day War upon which the Israel Defense Forces liberated the eastern neighborhoods of Jerusalem from Jordanian rule.

This is the 2nd leak on Obama's new Middle East Peace Plan - which with the US leading will find the world pressuring Israel. Here's the points we know of so far:

1 - No Jewish building or living in Yehuda and the Shomron (aka West Bank), or in 60% of Jerusalem. 200,000 Jews to be made homeless and parts of Israel judenridden (Jew free) from Yehuda and the Shomron (West Bank), and another 100,000 from parts of Jerusalem..

2 - Pali sovereignty over 1/3 of Jerusalem. (Note when such a plan was discussed 5 years ago, there was a rush of Pali residents of Jerusalem requesting Israeli resident status and ID cards - which they are entitled to but had previously avoided for political reasons. When faced with living under their own sovereignty, they chose otherwise.)

3 - UN sovereignty over 1/3 of Jerusalem. (Because the UN runs so many places and situations around the world so well. Gag.)

4 - Arab countries agree to 'recognize' Israel. "Hey, that's Israel over there, isn't it?" Ok, now that's taken care of, Israel should feel much safer now.

5 - Pali's agree not to flood Jewish State of Israel with 2.1 million hostile non-residents, agreeing not to 'resettle' refugees who never lived there and who's grandparents left of their own free will (for the most part) at the instruction of their leaders. On the same note, I'm personally demanding citizenship and housing compensation from Austria, Belarus, and Russia for never having lived there but having heard someone in my family once did.

Lining all this politics up with the words of the navi'im (biblical prophets) in future posts, G-d willing.

It is amazing to see this all play out. Today on CNN, there was a panel who basically was mocking Israel and how they just won't listen to the world dictates of dividing her. Then, after this, they got Israel's opinion in this via Condi's girlfriend Tzipi. Look forward to more articles you may post.
