On the Brink
The shiniest "Light" always attracts the deepest darkness. This is a deeply shameful "turn of events" and it is very well reported.
Should the West allow adhesion to accepting values by countries violating human rights, systematically, for any reason, and systematically indulging in unethical practices, we can all, as the Human Family kiss good-bye to true peace and respect between Nations.
It is deeply disturbing that violators of Human rights, Human Life, and its' respect and evolution should gain any kind of ascendancy, anywhere.
The Jewish Peoples are usually the first Peoples under attack whenever there is a danger within the Human family, for as "Guardians of the Ten Commandments," they are generally "in the way" of any entity, country, mindset, and or system which wishes to establish itself as "all-powerful."
the Adage: "As goes Israel and the Jewish Peoples anywhere, so goes the world, is very apt, and a true litmus of the state of Human Life.

Apple of His Eye
Greatest nation who ever lived. Pick on Israel now; pay later. Who with a generous warm heart cannot love Israel. Even in ethnocentricity, they are special and loved. Love God and you must love Israel. They will prevail.

Time for the UN to follow the League of Nations........
The UN as a peacekeeping authority - totally useless ....
1 Palestinian criminal dead in jail - media madness - 70 k murdered in Syria - scarcely a comment ???
It is surely time for Israel to take a tough stance - over 1 million Israeli Arabs...WHY...persons whose only aim is the destruction of the State are citizens ??? This is either an overdose of democracy or insanity....is there any other country in the world who would allow such an occurrence ?
The support of Obama is seemingly wavering as his ego increases - US you have only one trusted friend in a highly volatile Middle East - don't blow it
Former Secretary of State's fawning embrace of Morsi pathetic
- has she no idea of just what the Moslem Briotherhood is all about ...apparently not...
Hopefully Bashad will soon go - he should re-watch videos of the demise of Ghadaffi.....Israel can better handle a Sunni Govt. in Syria, despite jihadist elements it will cause fewer problems than the ongoing triumvirate of evil - Iran, Hezbollah,Hamas
Time for a very tough line approach to the Palestinians and ignore world media - why not - in many ways they must be held responsible for inciting the Palestinians anti state antics...
If the Palestinians are not content in Israel then move to the Arab world - sadly the Arab world doesn't want them either

Thank you Anne Bayesfsky
This is brilliant, plain and simple. Who can argue with truth so cleanly elucidated? As for China...

un watch is doing a great job of showing up some of the hypocrisy
of the un. the un will go on in this iniquitous manner because cowardice has pervaded the racist jew hating chambers of this non august body and there are no world leaders with the guts to speak up , although jon kerry did lambaste turkey for its zionism rant and canada as long as there is a conservative government in power will also and does speak up.

How great it is that Israel is such a good country. Under all these pressures it has remained free and has been a welcoming place. It will be protected in the end times,by the all mighty God himself,who chose these people for his own. thank you God for the Jewish people

UN, A failed Experiment
The UN was created, primarily by the US and the USSR, as an instrument in response to WWII. Itss predeccor, the League of Nations, was an abject failure. Fortunately, the USA rejected participation in that failure. June 26, 1950, demonstrated the abject failure of the UN, when the USSR actively fought against UN forces in Korea. Since that time, the world of Islam has learned how to use the tool of the UN as a weapon against all of the West. Israel is but the most visible point of attack.

Recent death of Palestinian prisoner demonstrates this double standard
The recent death of a Palestinian prisoner (one out of 4500) triggered calls for U.N. investigations. You would think that Israel was the only Middle East country to ever have a prisoner die in custody. Hamas doesn't shy away from killing prisoners and dragging them through the streets or throwing them off rooftops. But ho hum, that's considered business as usual for them.

Terror doesn't cause only death, also injuries and comas
My husband has a friend who is not a widower and hischild is not an orphan. But still he has no wife and his child has no mother. What happened to the wife and mother, where is she?
One day she was enjoying a piece of Pizza in Jerusalem, when a suicide bomber walked in and exploded him or herself ( I don't remeber the sex of the suicid killer, with a belt-bomb around the waist). This woman was not killed, she is still in a coma, about 12 years after the Sbarro Pizzeria was blown up. Her husband was bereaft, her child was left with onbly a father at age 2.
What is worse, a loved one that has been murdered or injured or stays in a coma? There is no answer, everybody suffers.
