What the Bible says about Jesus

The True Light "In him, (the Lord Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world,…the world didn’t recognize him." John 1:4,9.
The Good Seed and the Weeds The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Matthew 13:24,25.

'J'accuse': Israeli ambassador smacks Europe at U.N.

UNITED NATIONS – 

Diplomats from around the world got an earful when they gathered to mark a day of international solidarity with the Palestinian people at U.N. headquarters in New York.
Israel’s ambassador to the august body dropped the diplomatic niceties as he stepped to the rostrum and accused the international community of hypocrisy and duplicity, and denounced Europeans for playing cynical political games with terrorists.

Monday’s special session of the General Assembly was part of the U.N.’s 2014 Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The yearlong event has seen any number of photo exhibits, receptions and concerts funded by the emir of Qatar, one of the world’s leading financiers of al-Qaida, ISIS, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

While the U.N. passes resolution after resolution accusing Israel of mistreating Palestinian civilians, “Yazidis, Bahai, Kurds, Christians and Muslims are being executed and expelled by radical extremists at a rate of 1,000 people per month” across the Middle East, Ambassador Ron Prosor said, pointing out the U.N. has not passed a single resolution addressing these crises.

The Israeli ambassador went on to blast the U.N. for ignoring the plight of the Palestinian refugees in Arab nations.
“In most of the Arab world, Palestinians are denied citizenship and are aggressively discriminated against” and “barred from owning land and prevented from entering certain professions,” he explained to the stone-faced diplomats.
The U.N., in fact, has done far more than refuse to condemn Arab states for persecuting Palestinian people. It has actively helped perpetuate the persecution, he charged.

Since 1949, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, UNRWA, has provided “assistance” exclusively to Palestinians in refugee camps in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. In doing so, it has acted like the international version of a welfare agency that fosters dependency, allowing “refugee status” to be passed down from generation to generation rather than encouraging host countries to integrate the refugees into society.

By the U.N.’s own numbers, about 700,000 Palestinians were displaced from Israel in 1948. UNRWA now serves some 5 million “official” Palestinian refugees.
“If you were so truly concerned about the Palestinians there would be at least one resolution to denounce the treatment of Palestinians in Lebanese refugee camps,” Prosor said.

But the Europeans came under the most scorching attack.
“The European nations claim to stand for Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité – freedom, equality and brotherhood – but nothing could be farther from the truth,” the ambassador said.
Prosor recounted the European nations’ refusal to allow American cargo planes to refuel as they carried weapons and ammunition to Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
“The Jewish people have a long memory. We will never ever forget that you failed us in the 1940s. You failed us in 1973. And you are failing us again today.”

Prosor turned his ire on Swedish Secretary of State Annika Soder, whose government recognized Palestine as an independent state and was seated among the delegates in the room.
“The Swedish government may host the Nobel Prize ceremony, but there is nothing noble about their cynical political campaign to appease the Arabs in order to get a seat on the Security Council,” he said. “Nations on the Security Council should have sense, sensitivity and sensibility. Well, the Swedish government has shown no sense, no sensitivity and no sensibility. Just nonsense.”

He reaffirmed Israel’s commitment to guarantee people of all faiths and nationalities will have access to Jerusalem’s holy sites.
“You don’t have to be Catholic to visit the Vatican, you don’t have to be Jewish to visit the Western Wall, but some Palestinians would like to see the day when only Muslims can visit the Temple Mount. … We will make sure that the holy places remain open to all people of all faiths for all time.”

After cataloguing terrorist attacks and their celebration by Palestinian authorities, he said the battle the world is witnessing is not between Jews and Arabs, but “a battle between those who sanctify life and those who celebrate death.”
As the delegates sat silently, Prosor summed up: “To the nations that continue to allow prejudice to prevail over truth, I say ‘J’accuse.’ I accuse you of hypocrisy. I accuse you of duplicity.”
