Peace in Jerusalem
Pray for peace in Jerusalem.
“It’s a lesson we have to learn, re-learn, over-learn every single time, and the reason is quite simple. The Palestinians, the moderate Palestinians, the Fatah Palestinians, Abbas, have shown us again and again that when it comes to making a final deal to get a peace with Israel, they are not interested. … They will do interim deals, they will do temporary deals. But here, they were confronted with an Israel prepared to create a Palestinian state, divide Jerusalem, and withdraw every Israeli, every Israeli who lives in a settlement on Palestinian territory. The answer’s always no, and the reason is this: they will not accept a Jewish state in their midst.”

The Palestinian–Israel Conflict — Mahmoud Abbas and Barack Obama Aren’t Helping
There is a huge media and political bias against Israel. It is real and it isn’t to be ignored.

Who is legitimizing this campaign? None other than Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, whom President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have long held up as a peacemaker.
“I think nobody would dispute that whatever disagreements you may have with him, he has proven himself to be somebody who has committed to nonviolence and diplomatic efforts to resolve this issue,” Obama told writer Jeffrey Goldberg in 2014.
So what is the truth?
“David Horovitz of the Times of Israel recounts the history. Not only did Abbas reject Olmert and Obama. He insisted in 2013 that the Palestinian “right of return,” which would irrevocably transform Israel into a bi-national state, be part of any deal. Declared in 2014 that Israel was committing “genocide” in Gaza. Announced in 2015 that the Palestinian Authority would no longer uphold previous agreements. Charged Israel, falsely, with infiltrating and violating Muslim sites. Encouraged Palestinians to lionize the knife-wielding assailants as martyrs, victims of Israeli “execution.” Spread the myth that 13-year-old Ahmad Mansara, recovering in an Israeli hospital from wounds he incurred in a botched terrorist attack — in which he critically wounded a Jewish teen — had been killed by an Israeli vigilante.”
