Reason to Cheer Rescinded for Lack of Creditable Momentum for Peace

Reader comment on item: One Cheer for Obama's Arab-Israeli Policy
in response to reader comment: What the heck is a terrorist organization doing on the UN Security Council

At the risk of introducing a greater level of cynicism to the circumstances that has enveloped the lack of peace progress at the behest of the United Nations, this answer is offered, not a consolation to the beleaguered nation of Israel, but as a warning to her, and to those who have angered the sensibilities of the Oslo architects and their support group. The American Administration did not receive the Nobel Peace prize for nothing, though saying nothing to object to the continued radicalization of the UN may seem otherwise.

Do we wonder at this? How does the world perceive the course the American Administration is taking as regards to the Middle East? On the one hand, it is stated that Israel remains a friend to America, yet this year's actions, reactions and inactions regarding Israel's security defy a sense that such security can be maintained when all that would be considered necessary for such maintenance are bargained away for a different mentality of what a Middle East peace would cost for Israel. We must remember that the same organization that gave the peace prize to the American Administration gave one to Yasser Arafat as well.

Make of that what one will, but remember as well that Israel can count upon only one entity, her Eternal Sovereign, and upon His WORD the fate of Israel rises and falls against her enemies; and her peace is finally determined by Him and not the gold object of a false world peace offered by her enemies.
