Several headshaking news reports this morning. The first: With the newly sworn in Palestinian American Representative Tlaib, comes a renewed push to call for a global boycott of Israel. Teaming with Bernie Sanders and Diane Feinstein to squash the Anti-BDS legislation before Congress.
According to multiple sources like the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz she retweeted from Bernie Sanders and added her own rhetoric: “This is the US where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality,” she wrote on Twitter. “Maybe a refresher on our US Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away.”
Their reasoning? Israel violates human rights, really. Israel is the only champion of total human rights in the M.E. and yet the propaganda continues. I have no sympathy or empathy for any body that calls for the annihilation of another. And yes they do. Whether they call for war or call for destruction from within by economic ruin its the same. Again we find this woman (Tlaib) clearly at odds with our values and our allies. Even continuing her anti-semitic rants. There is not enough room to write about the abuses by the PLO. But lets look at BDS. In my opinion this movement of boycotting an entire country violates International Trade laws and human rights.
“The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (also known as BDS) is a global campaign promoting various forms of boycott against Israel until it meets what the campaign describes as “Israel’s obligations under international law”, defined as withdrawal from the occupied territories, removal of the separation barrier in the West Bank, full equality for Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel, and “respecting, protecting, and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties”. The campaign is organized and coordinated by the Palestinian BDS National Committee.”
- Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall;
- Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israelto full equality; and
- Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.
Again there is not enough room to write about the propaganda put into this movement. In short they want Israel to return to pre-1967 borders, and tear down its defenses. Thousands of rockets are fired at Israel from Gaza every year. Attack tunnels ate discovered daily. Attacks also continue inside Israel resulting in death for Israeli’s.
Now America’s newest representative calls for Israel’s ruin. And yes when you tout support for economic ruin, complete with a map in her office with the Name Israel replaced with Palestine, well actions speak louder…And a picture is worth a thousand words…..SMH
An article by the Baltimore Sun states that it (BDS) attacks Israels Sovereignty/self determination, the article states in part: “Instead, it insists that Jews do not have a right to self-determination; a clearly discriminatory and bigoted stance that violates the U.N. Charter, which guarantees respect for the integrity and independence of every U.N. member state and acknowledges its right to self-determination.”
I agree wholeheartedly. I stand with Israel.
In other news almost every day we hear of illegal aliens (yes I am not politically correct) causing the death of our citizens. A Police officer was killed by an illegal, and last week in a small town of Tennessee a Captain of the Knoxville Fire department lost his son in a car accident caused by an illegal. His sons motto was “my actions matter.” The illegal had no drivers license or insurance, and driving eradically crossed the yellow line striking this young man head on. Again, wvery day we find people violating our laws, who are illegal in this country hurting or killing our citizens. And don’t even start, I’m not racist. I have empathy for those wanting the life we live, but vet them and follow our laws. Christians across the globe fleeing for their lives are begging for refuge here and they are legally seeking entry but are denied.
And I’m sorry but there is a difference between a migrant and a mob attacking and overwhelming a border. I emphasize with those with children, but you can not attack a countries border in this manner, and expect to be welcomed with open arms. A state of emergency is developing.
The stats from leading MSM are very misleading and propaganized to turn opinion away from border security. Their recent new report says a wall would only stop 1/3 of illegal immigration. Laughable considering the staggering numbers crossing our southern border and the number in the mobs attempting to attack and cross. They say more are overstayed Visa’s. Thats another post. But don’t believe what they call “official reports” do your own research. Today I heard CBS playing a clip calling President Trump a liar. They have no shame, and have been bought out.
Another report says Iran has renewed calls for Israel’s destruction, and is planning military excercises with Russia. Meanwhile true human rights abuses are happening there.
We are in the Great Deception, can we prevent the great falling away? No but we can pull back many from the road to perdition. Speak boldly this year.
