January 15th: 70 Nations Will Gather In Paris To Discuss The Creation Of A Palestinian State


From Michael Snyder:
On January 15th, representatives from 70 different countries will gather in Paris, France for an unprecedented global conference.  The stated goal of this conference is to promote a “two-state solution” as the way that lasting peace will be brought to the Middle East.  In Israel, there is a tremendous amount of concern that whatever is agreed upon at this conference will immediately be used as the basis for a UN Security Council resolution that would permanently divide the land of Israel and create a Palestinian state.  But things would have to move very rapidly in order for that to happen, because Barack Obama’s time in the White House comes to an end on January 20th, and Donald Trump has already made it exceedingly clear that he would never support such a resolution.
The UN Security Council resolution that was passed on Friday was one of the most significant events that we have witnessed in decades.  Resolution 2334 made all Israeli settlements in the West Bank and in East Jerusalem illegal, it set the 1967 ceasefire lines as the border between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and it granted every single inch of East Jerusalem to the Palestinians.  But it stopped short of giving official UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state, and that is why this conference on January 15th is so important.
On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will lay out a plan which many believe will serve as the blueprint for the upcoming conference in Paris.  This is something that I discussed yesterday.  Apparently Kerry has been working on this for quite some time, and according to the Times of Israel, Jewish officials are fearful that he may propose something drastic…
At a press briefing Tuesday, State Department spokesman Mark Toner confirmed Kerry’s plans for the speech, though he refused to detail whether the top US diplomat would use the opportunity to announce a new American initiative, which officials in Jerusalem fear he may.
Toner said the secretary holds the conviction that “it is his duty in his remaining weeks and days as secretary of state to lay out what he believes is a way towards a two-state solution” and that “it’s always important to keep the process moving forward.”
If Kerry’s plan is embraced by the conference in Paris, it is anticipated by many that it would serve as the basis for a UN Security Council resolution that would formally create a Palestinian state before Donald Trump is inaugurated on January 20th.  The following comes from the Guardian
The Israeli government is reportedly fearful that any guidelines agreed in Paris would be turned into another UN resolution before Trump’s inauguration, and it has ratcheted up its rhetoric, presenting itself as the victim of an international conspiracy.
A spokesman for Netanyahu claimed to have “ironclad evidence” that the Obama administration had plotted behind the scenes to promote the UN resolution. Israel has said it will present evidence against the Obama administration to the incoming Trump team.
A great comment from Anonymous:
There is the possibility that the US, under Trump, would refuse to recognize a 2nd Palestinian state. 
There already is a Palestinian state called Jordan. That was the original intent. 
Jordan administered the West Bank but simply walked away from that commitment. 
Egypt owned Gaza but lost it in the 73 war along with Sinai. When they got Sinai back they refused to take Gaza. They didn't want it. Who would? 
Trump has said he will recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. No way the US could do that AND insist that Israel stay out of the Eastern part of the city. 
I'm hoping Trump sticks to his guns. Figuratively and, if necessary, literally.

An irrelevant conference, except for its real agenda, legitimizing anti semitism, by de-legitimizing Israel, using UN 2334 as the basis for saying Israel is depriving palestinians if their human rights, which if granted as specified in that resolution would being the process of no Israel>>>The aim of 'real' peace.

Islamic peace is the vanquishing of their enemies. So yes, to Muslims, this would be peace.
