The Battle for Jerusalem

This afternoon – on the shortest day of the year, December 21, 2017 – the United Nations General Assembly decided to vote on a resolution that rejected the United States recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. This was done in “emergency session” after it was made clear that the US was going through with this action irrespective of what the UN stated.

What is not stated anywhere by any of the Dinosaur Media is that it was the American People through the action of the duly elected US Congress in 1995 – that’s right, 1995 or 22 years ago – to overwhelmingly see to the passage of what is known as the “Jerusalem Act” into law. It was this law that required the United States to move our Embassy to Jerusalem. Yet Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama refused to take any action on this law. Rather, “We The People” had to wait for a non-politician who actually does things to institute this law.

To understand exactly how this works, we need to be clear about two key aspects of history and reality:

  1. It is Israel that holds historical claim to Jerusalem as the capital of the country going back more than 3000 years,
  2. It is the will of the people of the United States that is being exercised here which exceeds the opinions of a group of flunky ambassadors who only seek to pursue their self-interests at the expense of the rest of the world.

For reference, the votes were 128 yea, 9 against, and 35 abstentions. President Trump and Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley made it clear that actions would be taken to terminate aid to those UN members who vote against this decision.

But just for fun, let’s see how each of these flunky ambassadors voted. I’m not talking about the names of the countries and how they voted. I am talking about the actual names of each of the ambassadors who supposedly represent the “interests” of the country they represent.
