This is a re-up on a post originally done in May 2011 shortly after President Barak Obama's Statements regarding the reversion of Israel Israel to its pre 1967 borders in order to facilitate a Palestinian state. CBN reports that Israeli forces are in a heightened state of alert and are gearing up for retaliation due to the potential rejection of a Palestinian State by the United Nations Security Council on Friday 9/23.2011. I thought that we should take another look at the issues and the real problems involved while all of us watch a new phase of history and biblical prophecy unfold before our eyes. Here's what I wrote then:
"Israel will not return to the indefensible boundaries of 1967"
In a joint session of the US House and Senate, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the time to educate a nation as to the real and significant problems associated with the Mid East Peace process. In what was an educational, reasonable and myth busting session, the Prime Minister laid out a solid case as to why Israel not only lays claim to the land, as not merely occupiers, but why Israeli history makes Israel a bona fide possessor of rights to the land. Netanyahu also expressed in a very clear fashion and manner why Israel refuses to negotiate with those who even American leaders have deemed to be terrorists.
The Prime Minister openly stated that the Jewish people are willing to accept the existence of a Palestinian state, which will tend to their own poor and refugee element. He noted that his Palestinian counterpart President Abbas, should stand before The Palestinian people and say,
"I will accept a Jewish state"
Prime Minister Netyanyahu said that those six words will change history and recounted that a Palestinian state must be built to end conflict not perpetuate it. Prediction:The problem is not that President Abbas cannot say this...the problem is that he WILL NOT say this as the goal of the Palestinian state is still the destruction of Israel.
Update: The Palestinians have responded to the Prime Minister's remarks regarding the refusal to negotiate based on 1967 boundaries, as words that are an act of war.
As stated, the Prime Minister reverted to both a historical and common sense appeal to the American public. Stating that the Jewish rights to the land extended nearly 4,000 years of history, contrary to the modern myths that have arisen placing Israel in the land only a short period of time. In part this revised, or minimalist history of Israel, which took on popularity in the late 19th and early to mid 20th Century, has nearly but all been debunked by growing archaeological finds and evidences which not only provides evidences of the existence of Israel as a nation within the specified territories, but that also affirms the Old Testament history and Israel's right to exist with almost every find.
The Prime Minister noted that each of the last 6 Jewish leaders (his predecessors) have all accepted the establishment of a Palestinian State. However, he also noted that resistance to the dual state solution has always been regarding the existence of a Jewish State or the nation of Israel (to which the whole congress rose and applauded)
Life In Palestine
The Prime Minister hailed the successes and advances of life within Palestine and also hailed how Israel had been a part of that advancement. He stated how Israel had taken the lead in the area in providing humane services for both Israeli's and Palestinians, removing barriers to the free flow of products, goods and services that had previously restricted growth and kept the Palestinian people without hope. However, he noted that his nation hadn't been extended the same courtesy or recognition of honor for their efforts. In addition he stated that the educational system of Palestinians was designed to perpetuate violence for years to come stating:
"They continue to educate their children to hate and name public squares after terrorists."..."My friend, this must come to an end."
Commitment To Israeli Destruction
The primary and exclusive problem to Mid-East peace is the fact that the most radical Islamic elements are bent on the destruction of and annihilation of Israel, and not the coexistence of states. Prime Minister Netanyahu outlined the problem clearly and succinctly, Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization, has consistently called for, and continues to call for, the destruction of the Jewish state of Israel. If Israel were to simply lay down their weapons, everyone knows it would be a bloodbath of epic proportions where the Palestinians would feel justified in murdering multiple thousands Israeli's. The Prime Minister retorted:
"Peace can only be negotiated with partners committed to Peace, and Hamas is not committed to Peace" "Israel will not negotiate with Palestinian version of Al-Qaeda, with that we will not do"
One cannot deny the obvious facts, that is unless one is a President who not only speaks in an novice fashion regarding the issue, but does a backstroke of epic proportions to to distance himself from his own policy. Terrorists cannot control the peace process. Hamas is not a friend to America, freedom and is not a benefit toward any democratic peace process in the Middle East. In fact Hamas does not better the economic condition of Palestine in any way. (except through the purchase of weapons) Hamas's motto is:
"We love death as much as the Jews love life"
The Palestinian resolution post 1967, when Israel had to fight for their right to exist as a people and a nation, was greed upon by every Islamic state in the region in Khartoum, Sudan. The announcement was made clearly and definitively that Israel should receive:
"No Recognition, No Peace and No Negotiation"
Part of the problem in the mind of many Muslims is the right to Jerusalem. The Prime Minister laid out a clear case for why Israel has full rights to Jerusalem. Not only is Jerusalem a part of Israel's history, there wouldn't be religious freedom otherwise if it were merely left to the Palestinian leadership. The Prime Minister said this regarding Jerusalem:
"Only democratic Israel has protected the freedom of worship for all religions."... "Jerusalem must never be divided, Jerusalem must remain the united capitol of Israel."
We all know that Sharia Law demands that the state be guided by the the Quran and the Hadith and the Islamic leadership interpretation of law and fact. The Prime Minister is correct in asserting that radical Islam does not see a co-existence with either Jews or Christians. Since the liberation efforts of Tunsinia, Egypt and other Islamic states, non Muslims have been under persecution in those countries almost like never before. To assume that there would be anything resembling religious freedom in a Palestinian controlled Jerusalem is nothing more than a fantasy.
The Right Of Defense:
In one of the most startling parts of the Prime Minister's speech he outlined how that since the 2008 Gaza withdrawal, Israel had been the recipient of over 12,000 missile and rocket attacks. This is almost 11 rocket attacks per day over the last 3 year period.
"Peace must be anchored in security"..."Absolutely essential that the Palestinian state be demilitarized"
As an American, I don't believe that we would stand for even one rocket or missile attack on an American city one day yet alone 10 times per day. How can President Barack Obama feel in any world that ONE missile is acceptable from one country toward another in a time when there is not supposedly a war? It is anti-Israeli bias that consumes many of the liberals when it comes to Middle-East peace.
Our hearts are devastated over the terrible natural disasters this year alone, in which the American South has been devastated and just a couple of days ago, Joplin, MO. was nearly destroyed...I have joined millions in crying and praying for the loss that is beyond belief...but the question is HOW can we justify any nation firing rockets on another and we say that THEY (the nation being fired upon) is responsible because they shouldn't be there?
The Prime Minister dealt with some of the ridiculous and preposterous notions that top America's leadership seems to currently embrace regarding Mid-East peace. I, for one, am glad that Prime Minister Netanyahu, not only set the record straight, but also educated those new to this conflict or that have received misinformation regarding this conflict, and the American far and extreme political and social liberal elite that has been the real problem.

Listen carefully to the picture he paints of the Palestinian relationship to Hamas and peace efforts. Keep in min that the missiles currently reigning down on Israel everyday ARE NOT coming from Israeli territories:
