Press Release 12.27.16
THE U.S. CONGRESS MUST ELIMINATE ALL U.N. FUNDING IN RESPONSE TO OBAMA’S BETRAYAL
NEW YORK (12/27/2016) Laurie Cardoza-Moore, President of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) and United Nations Special Envoy for the World Council of Independent Christian Churches (WCICC), which represents over 40 million congregants worldwide, today issued the following statement condemning the UN Security council’s anti-Israel/anti-Semitic resolution:
“As someone who has witnessed the corruption up close, the countries that make up the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) have hijacked the UN. During the time I have spent at the UN, it has become an institution beyond repair. In his parting comments, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon stated, ‘Decades of political maneuvering have created a disproportionate number of resolutions, reports and committees against Israel.’ But once again, the member states of the UN Security Council have proven their blind hatred of Jews and Israel and the double standard applied to Israel is unquestionable. To deny the Jews legal, archeological, historical and biblical rights to their entire ancient homeland is despicable.
As Christians around the world were preparing to celebrate Christmas, and our Jewish brethren were preparing for Hanukkah, the United Nations, with the wide-predicted support of President Barack Obama chose to follow in the footsteps of Hitler who tried to eliminate the Jews from Europe – but this time in the Middle East. With a single vote, they have denied our Jewish brethren the rights to their homeland as well as threatening the very survival of Christians and our holy sites in the biblical heartland. In the face of 4,000 years of documented history, Obama and his anti-Semitic UN friends have denied the Jewish people’s right to live and build freely in their ancient homeland. The UN resolution demands that Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the so-called ‘occupied Palestinian territories’, which includes East Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall and the Jewish Quarter. Yet, there never was an Arab Palestine to occupy.
This is a dark day for the United Nations and a darker day for Americans, Jews and Christians around the world. Not only will this vote fuel the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel, but it will lead to more World Court rulings based on a false interpretation of international law and the proliferation of more fake history. Sadly, in this climate of growing anti-Semitism, this resolution will also ignite more terror attacks against Jews and Christians. When innocent blood is spilled, the blame will be squarely laid at Barack Obama’s feet.
“We explicitly condemn the United Nations Security Council for choosing to vilify Israel in an attempt to eradicate all Jewish presence in their ancient homeland and essentially making the biblical heartland of Israel Judenrien, or the Nazi term for ‘Jew free’. This resolution not only denies the historical evidence, but also utterly disregards decades of international law and treaties, as well as Article 80 of the UN Charter itself that unconditionally acknowledged and reaffirmed the 1920 ‘Mandate for Palestine’ set forth by the League of Nations. Following the first World War, various Mandates granted Arabs four nations in the Middle East and one for the Jews with an irrevocable right to settle in the area of Turkish Palestine between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.
On behalf of WCCIC and PJTN, we are calling on President-elect Donald Trump, upon his first order of business on January 21st, 2017, to call upon Congress to cut all funding to the UN and to immediately begin the process of moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv, to her biblical, ancient capital, Jerusalem. It is past time for the U.S. to send a message loud and clear that we the people will stand with our Jewish brethren and Israel in the struggle for her right to inhabit her ancient biblical and legal homeland.
In closing, I am reminded of the words of the late, Menachem Begin, who stated that ‘these are not occupied territories, they are liberated territories!'”
Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), a 501c3 non-profit organization, was established to educate Christians about their Biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel, utilizing powerful film and video presentations, a variety of grassroots rallies, events and speaking engagements to facilitate dialogue between the Christian and Jewish communities in support of the State of Israel and against global genocidal anti-Semitism. In recent months the organization has led the struggle against BDS in America with a wave of state resolutions and the upcoming 2017 release of a new documentary film “BOYCOTT THIS!” that will expose the truth behind the BDS movement.
