We are now at a critical crossroad in the US/Israel relationship. This week two profound and very negative choices face the Obama administration. One is the Golan issue on the Israel/Syria border. The other is at the United Nations.
- This Friday the Palestinian Authority is pushing a vote in the UN Security Council against Israel. They last tried in December 2014 and could not get the nine yes votes to pass it. This time they have the votes. The only way to defeat it is with a US veto; and President Obama is threatening and intimidating Israel with the suggestion that he may not veto the resolution.

Judgement Day – Will The US Turn It’s Back On Israel At Friday’s UN Vote? Prophecy News Watch: Such actions would be unprecedented in US/Israel relations but some believe Obama has been emboldened by his actions in Iran and Cuba, and that the Palestinian cause could be his final act of legacy to “bring peace” to the Middle East.
ANALYSIS Since the last showdown in 2014, makeup of Security Council has changed in Palestinians’ favor, so Obama holds the key. As Palestinians head back to the UN, cause for concern in Israel. Upcoming Security Council resolution is projected to easily win the votes it needs — and this time a US veto is far from assured. Times of Israel
- This week the Obama Administration joined with Russia in a plan to force Israel to give up the Golan Heights to Syria. Israel annexed the Golan in 1981 because Syria used it to fire rockets down on northern Israel. This is an ominous development that exposes the sinister Obama hidden agenda to punish Israel for Prime Minister Netanyahu’s refusal to knuckle under US pressure to force a two-state solution.
Netanyahu: We Will Never Surrender Golan Heights Israel’s Cabinet convened its weekly meeting atop the Golan Heights on Sunday so that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could pointedly inform the world that, in light of the current situation in the region, there is no chance Israel will ever return the strategic plateau to Syrian control.

US and Russia Team up to Seek Israel Pullback from Golan DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources and its sources in Moscow report exclusively that Israel’s top political leaders and military commanders were stunned and shocked last weekend when they found out that US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin have agreed to support the return of the Golan to Syria. The two presidents gave their top diplomats, Secretary of State John Kerry and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the green light to include such a clause in a proposal being drafted at the Geneva conference on ending the Syrian civil war.

Pray according to scripture: Deliver me, O Yehovah, from evil men; preserve me from violent men, who plan evil things in their hearts; they continually gather together for war. They sharpen their tongues like a serpent; the poison of asps is under their lips. Selah Keep me, O Yehovah, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from violent men, who have purposed to make my steps stumble. Psalm 140:1-4
