A draft of the summary statement that will be released at the conclusion of the 70-nation conference in Paris on Sunday has been leaked. As you will see below, this communique is going to call for the division of the land of Israel, for the establishment of a Palestinian state, for the 1967 borders to serve as the basis for final negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians and for the condemnation of any officials that refuse to support a two-state solution.
Of course this comes on the heels of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, which many believe represented America’s greatest betrayal of Israel. Israeli government officials are publicly warning that there is a possibility the principles agreed upon at this conference may form the basis for another Security Council resolution before Jan. 20, and this is something we should all be watching for very closely.
Haaretz exclusively obtained a copy of a draft of the summary statement that will be released following the conference on Sunday, and you can read it for yourself right here. Reportedly, there was a major meeting of diplomats last Friday, and the latest draft reflects feedback that was received from those diplomats during that meeting:
Last Friday, there was a meeting of senior diplomats from the dozens of Western and Arab countries that will attend the conference. The French delegate, Pierre Vimont, presented them with the first draft of the conference’s summary communiqué and asked for comments.
According to Western diplomats, Vimont said France wants to reach a consensus among the participating states on a balanced statement that would stress the centrality of the two-state solution to the international community, but would take this month’s transfer of presidential power in the United States into account.
In many ways, the document closely tracks the language of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334. Here are some of the things that really stood out to me in the draft.
– It makes a clear commitment to “two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security.”
– It insists that there must be an end to “the occupation that began in 1967”.
– It calls on Israeli and Palestinian leaders to publicly renew their commitment to a two-state solution.
– It also calls on Israeli and Palestinian leaders to publicly renounce any of their officials who do not support a two-state solution.
– It states that the 70 nations gathered in Paris only recognize the June 4, 1967 borders and that the only future changes to those borders they will recognize will come as the result of negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians. And just like U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, Jerusalem is specifically mentioned. So according to this document, Israel does not own the Wailing Wall, the Temple Mount, a single inch of the West Bank or a single inch of East Jerusalem.
– The summary statement will also call on all countries to clearly distinguish between the state of Israel and territories that would belong to the Palestinians based upon the 1967 borders in all of their dealings.
Needless to say, this is a horribly anti-Israel document, and the Israeli government is already strongly denouncing it.
At this point, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is most alarmed about the possibility that this summary statement could be used as the basis for another U.N. Security Council resolution just a few days later.
Netanyahu fears that the final communiqué of the Paris conference will be adopted next Monday by the EU foreign ministers’ council and the foreign ministers of the Quartet, and might also be the basis for another resolution at the Security Council, which is scheduled to convene next Tuesday for its monthly debate on the Israeli-Palestinian issue.
“We find ourselves only a few days before the Paris conference and, only a few days later, a Security Council debate,” Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday. “We are making a great effort to prevent another Security Council resolution.”
By organizing this conference and trying to lead the way in the effort to divide the land of Israel, France is in danger of greatly cursing itself.
Recently, I was asked why God cares so much about Israel. I think a very basic illustration can help us to understand this better.
If you want to enrage any man, just go after his home and his family. This will be true in just about any culture all across the globe.
Similarly, when the rest of the world attempts to divide the land of Israel and hurt the Jewish people, they are going after the family Jesus was born into and the city where He will rule and reign for 1000 years after He returns.
When Jesus was being crucified, Roman soldiers divided up his clothing, a deeply disgraceful act.
But now, just before Jesus returns, the entire globe is trying to divide up both His land and the one city on the entire planet He has identified as His own (Matt. 5:35).
Why are our leaders being so foolish? In the Scriptures, God specifically warns us that in the last days, He will judge the nations for dividing up His land. This is what Joel 3:1-2 says in the Modern English Version…
In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. I will enter into judgment with them there regarding My people and My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.
Those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed.
And the 70 nations that are gathering in Paris, France on Sunday are literally in danger of cursing the entire planet.
Let us just pray there will not be another U.N. Security Council resolution following this conference, because that would be absolutely disastrous for Israel, for the United States and for the rest of the globe.

A new video showing two hostages pleading for their lives has been circulated online by the Afghan Taliban. The two men were kidnapped near the American University in Afghanistan five months ago.
by, Deutsche Welle | Blazing CatFur
The video, released by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid on Wednesday, is the first apparent proof that the two hostages are still alive after being kidnapped on August 7.
Timothy Weeks, an Australian citizen, and his American colleague Kevin King were abducted by gunmen dressed as police near the the American University of Afghanistan, where both men were working as professors.
Shortly after their kidnapping, US Special Operations forces launched a mission, approved by US President Barack Obama, to rescue them. But when forces raided the supposed location of the hostages, they weren’t there, the Pentagon said in September.
Hostage appeals to Trump for help
In the video, which according to Weeks was made on January 1, the two men urged president-elect Donald Trump to secure their release. Weeks said the Taliban is demanding that the US release prisoners at Bagram air field and at Pul-e-Charkhi prison in Kabul in exchange for the release of the two men.
“They are being held there illegally and the Taliban has asked for them to be released in our exchange. If they are not exchanged for us then we we will be killed,” Weeks said.
“Donald Trump, sir, please, I ask you, please, this is in your hands, I ask you please to negotiate with the Taliban. If you do not negotiate with them, we will be killed,” he said.

Jabhat al-Nusra Terrorist, Funded by the Obama Administration, Sends His Two Young Daughters on Suicide Missions
Footage shows a fanatic lecturing the two children, seven and nine, in Damascus
They are dressed in coats and hats before being embraced by burka-clad woman
Seven-year-old then thought to have been killed in explosion at a police station
The blast in Damascus, the Syrian capital, wounded three police officers
by, Julian Robinson | Daily Mail – UK
This is the moment jihadi parents kissed their daughters goodbye shortly before one of them walked into a Syrian police station and was blown up by a remote detonator.
Footage shows a male fanatic lecturing the two children, seven and nine, about how to carry out suicide bomb attacks before they are embraced by a woman in a burka.
A short time later, the seven-year-old is thought to have walked into a police station in Syria’s capital, Damascus, before being killed in an explosion.
With music in the background and sitting in front of a black and white flag, the ranting extremist holds the girls in his arms as he brainwashes them.
Both girls then say ‘Allahu Akbar’ before separate footage shows them dressed in coats and woolly hats as they embrace their mother and leave the room.
A short time later, on December 16, a seven-year-old girl calmly walked into a Damascus police station before being killed in a bomb blast that also injured three officers.
Syrian journalists have reported the two adults as being husband and wife and parents to the two girls. They also linked one of the youngsters to the explosion on Friday.
In one video, the mother repeatedly hugs the seven-year-old, named as Islam, and the older girl, named as Fatima.
A man behind the camera asks the woman why she is sending her daughters to jihad when they are so young.
She replies that ‘no one is young when it comes to jihad as every Muslim is supposed to participate in jihad.’
He then prays for Allah to accept the sacrifice the woman is making
In the second video the man believed to be the father asks one of the girls what she is ‘going to do today’ before she replies that she is going to carry out a suicide bombing in Damascus.
In an apparent reference to the bus evacuation of rebel fighters and residents from Aleppo last week, the man asks one of the children: ‘Shouldn’t you leave fighting to the men? Or did all of them flee in the green buses?’.
He later adds: ‘You are not going to be afraid because you are going to the Heavens, right?’.
The girl on the left replies simply: ‘Yes’.
Both children then say Allah Akbar on the man’s request before he starts saying prayers.
It is not yet clear which jihadist group was behind the attack. The explosion in the bustling Midan neighbourhood of the Syrian capital wounded three police officers, said the Al-Watan daily, which is close to the government.
‘A seven-year-old girl entered the police station, carrying a belt that was detonated from afar,’ the paper posted on its Facebook page.
A police source told Al-Watan that the little girl had appeared lost and asked to use the bathroom when the explosives went off.
Although rebel groups have fired rockets and mortar rounds into the capital, explosions inside the city itself are rare.
Syrian state news agency SANA said earlier there were preliminary reports about a ‘terrorist explosion at the Midan police station in Damascus’.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed there had been a blast in Midan but said it could not specify the cause.
Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP that ‘one woman’ was killed in the blast, but it remained unclear whether she was a suicide bomber or a bystander.
In early 2012, a suicide bomber killed 26 people when he blew himself up in Midan. More than 310,000 people have died since Syria’s conflict broke out in 2011.
The attack happened in the Syrian capital, President Bashar al-Assad’s stronghold of Damascus.
A brutal battle to retake the city of Aleppo appears to have come to an after a ceasefire and evacuation of residents was agreed with rebels.
But Assad’s forces are still fighting insurgents near the capital while large areas of the country remain in rebel control in the northwestern countryside and in the far south.
Peace on Earth will only be achievable once Muslim parents begin to love their own children more than they hate us.
Only the Little Girl Died in the Blast Carried Out by the Devout Followers of Islam
by, The Clarion Project | RT News
Damascus, Syria: An eight-year-old girl carried out a suicide bombing attack at a Damascus police station, according to SANA (the Syrian Arab News Agency) and as reported by RT.
The agency cited a source in the Damascus Police Command that reported, “Terrorists sent an eight-year-old girl with a small homemade bomb to a police station in the Midan neighborhood. When she entered the building, militants activated the explosive device with a remote control, the child died at the scene, one police officer suffered light injuries.”

The bombing has not been claimed by any group as yet. The girl reportedly came to the police station and said she was lost.
The blast killed her and lightly injured one policeman.

Recently, while scrolling through the notifications of new “Likes/Followers” for our site’s publicized Facebook page ..one in particular caught my eye. Does that read what I think it does? Why yes it does.
‘..Americans for Sharia liked and is now following your page..’
Upon checking out this relatively new Community page..which had not yet received it’s first “like,” that is until “I” liked it… 🙂 ..I was left alone to discern.. Is this rapidly expanding community of “2” (myself and the unknown administrator) serious or satire?
Therefore, in an effort to facilitate dialog, I cordially messaged the administrator, introduced myself and respectfully asked a few questions. The only reply I have received thusfar is (quote):
‘..Brother, we are for the One God but we hate mohels..’
Hmm.. I’m not sure if the ‘mohel’ reference is specifically aimed at those who perform male circumcision in accordance with the Judaic Faith or simply Judaism as a whole.
Regardless..after strolling around the page for a moment, I noticed the following statement in the sidebar (quote):
‘..Did you know that Shariah can solve all of America’s problems? Drugs, drunk driving, the spread of STDs, high divorce rates, teenage pregnancy..’
I suppose this could be true, but is it not also true when properly adhering to the tenets of any of the other major “religions” of the world?
Are these “social plagues” in America today not the result of a lack of adherence to the teachings of the Judaic faith(‘s) of Judeo-Christianity/Judaism? So then, why would the current social condition in America be any different today, if goverened under Islamic ‘Sharia Law?’ Would there actually be less occurences of ‘..teenage pregnancy..’ under Sharia Law than there currently are under Judaic Law, as the administrator for ‘Americans for Sharia’ appears to contend? Perhaps so, but only for this reason: Under Sharia Law, the out-of-wedlock pregnant teen girls would be charged with committing “Adultery,” buried in the ground up to their chest and stoned to death. Afterall, this is the compulsory “Crime and Punishment” mandated for females having sexual relations outside of marriage, according to Islamic Sharia Jurisprudence.
Continuing on down the page, there is a video entitled “Hijab Tutorial: Layers and Drapes” ..where a [presumably Muslim woman] teaches females how to properly put on and wear the Islamic female head attire, commonly referred to as the hijab.
Here is that video:
We encourage our readers to visit the ‘Americans for Sharia’ Facebook Community HERE although, we respectfully request that ALL of our readers PLEASE give the administrator(‘s), group members and all visitors on that page the same degree of respect that ‘you’ wish to receive.
Remember, being mean and/or disrespectful to a person that we may disagree with on principal accomplishes what in the end? Usually an arguement, name calling and the conversation ends at that point…
Please try to open-up a line of communication and facilitate dialog.
First and foremost.. accept and love a person right where they are today, for who they are today and I assure you..this will speak volumes as to who ‘you’ truly are as a person. Much more so than anything you will ever say…
Ahavah and Shalom.
‘..59 out of 88 Recently Arrested al-Qaeda Terrorists Were Graduates of the “Saudi Jihadist Rehabilitation Program”..’
by, Judicial Watch | Doug Ross @ Director Blue
An Al Qaeda operative incarcerated at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo has confirmed what Judicial Watch has been reporting for years, that a Saudi Arabian “rehabilitation” program that supposedly reforms jihadists is really a terrorist training camp. The U.S. has released dozens of Gitmo captives to the comical jihadist rehab and earlier this year considered sending another, senior Al Qaeda boss Ghassan Abdullah al-Sharbi, a dangerous Saudi national with a U.S. college education.
During a hearing before President Obama’s Gitmo parole board, al-Sharbi said “you guys want to send me back to Saudi Arabia because you believe there is a de-radicalization program on the surface, true. You are 100 percent right, there is a strong externally…a strong de-radicalization program, but make no mistake, underneath there is a hidden radicalization program.” The testimony was delivered months ago, but was recently declassified by the Department of Defense (DOD), which maintains that al-Sharbi is a committed jihadist and threat to the U.S., its interests and allies. The panel denied al-Sharbi’s petition for release, but has granted many others recently.
Saudi rehab centre used to recruit & train jihadists:

In his quest to clear out the prison and close it, Obama has embarked on a frenzy releasing droves of terrorists jailed at the U.S. Naval base in southeastern Cuba. More than 100, including Osama bin Laden’s bodyguards, have been released to the Saudi rehab program, officially known as the Prince Mohammed bin Naif Counseling and Care Center. It specializes in “spreading the concept of moderateness and rejecting immoderate way of thinking” by using art therapy, video games, exercise and sports to de-radicalize terrorists. Obama has praised the bogus Saudi terrorist rehab program, even though the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency disclosed years ago that many of the Gitmo detainees who rejoin terrorist missions after leaving the military prison returned to “the fight” after graduating from Saudi rehab.
Among them is Al Qaeda leader Ibrahim al-Rubaysh, the poster child for the Saudi rehab’s failures. Years after releasing al-Rubaysh from Gitmo, the U.S. offered a $5 million reward for information on the whereabouts of the Saudi rehab grad. The State Department coined the “senior leader” of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, revealing that “he serves as a senior advisor for AQAP operational planning and is involved in the planning of attacks.” Judicial Watch reported this two years ago, citing the State Department announcement describing al-Rubaysh as a senior AQAP sharia official since 2013 who has made public statements calling on Muslims to wage war against the United States. Many others have returned to terrorism after completing terrorist reform school.
RARE look inside Saudi de-radicalization program:
This hasn’t deterred Obama from sending more Gitmo terrorists to the laughable de-radicalization program. Earlier this year the administration transferred nine Yemeni captives to Saudi Arabia and just a few weeks ago it approved the transfer of an Al Qaeda bomb maker, Jabran al Qahtani, that U.S. authorities believe will reengage in terrorism. The president’s Gitmo parole panel, officially known as the Periodic Review Board (PRB), specifically mentions the Mohammed bin Naif Counseling and Care Center in its final determination to transfer al Qahtani and states its “confidence in the efficacy of the Saudi rehabilitation program.” Al Qahtani’s “credible desire to participate in the Saudi rehabilitation program and reintegrate into society” also played a role in the parole board’s decision to release him. The PRB found that “the risk the detainee presents can be adequately mitigated by transfer for prosecution and rehabilitation in Saudi Arabia.”
Though al-Sharbi will remain at Gitmo, the fact remains that he disclosed damaging information about a fake Middle Eastern reform program the administration has used to free a multitude of dangerous terrorists. Based on his DOD file, al-Sharibi shouldn’t have even been considered for transfer. With a degree in electrical engineering from an Arizona college, al-Sharibi operated within the United States organizing sophisticated terrorist cells and conducting educational directives involved with mission planning. He has attended an Al Qaeda training camp and was selected by the terrorist group to a receive a special remote control detonation training to carry out attacks on U.S. forces, his DOD file states. “Detainee has demonstrated a commitment to jihad, has links to key facilitators in the Al-Qaida international terrorist network, and has participated in terrorist training,” according to the defense assessment, which also says al-Sharibi poses a high risk to western interests.
Germany Imports Child Marriage
by, Soeren Kern | The Gatestone Institute | h/t Blazing CatFur
The true number of child marriages in Germany is believed to be much higher than the official statistics suggest because many are being concealed.
In May, an appeals court in Bamberg recognized the marriage of a 15-year-old Syrian girl to her 21-year-old cousin. The ruling effectively legalized Sharia child marriages in Germany.
“Religious or cultural justifications obscure the simple fact that older, perverse men are abusing young girls.” — Rainer Wendt, head of the German police union.
“This is not a question of tolerance and openness, but a question of the protection of children and minors. We therefore need a clear rule: Assessing the marriageable age of a person … will in the future always be determined by German law.” — Bavarian Justice Minister Winfried Bausback.
German authorities are debating the contours of a new law that would crack down on child marriages after it emerged that some 1,500 underage brides are now living in the country.
The married minors are among the more than one million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East who entered Germany in 2015.
The German Interior Ministry, responding to a Freedom of Information Act request, recently revealed that 1,475 married children are known to be living in Germany as of July 31, 2016 — including 361 children who are under the age of 14.
Most of the married children are from Syria (664), Afghanistan (157) and Iraq (100). Nearly 80% (1,152) are girls. The true number of child marriages in Germany is believed to be much higher than the official statistics suggest because many are being concealed.
German law currently allows minors aged 16 or over to get married if their partner is of legal age and the parents or guardians consent. Germany does not recognize marriages contracted abroad if a partner is under 14, but German family courts have discretion to determine the validity of marriages concluded abroad by minors who are 14 or older.
In May, an appeals court in Bamberg recognized the marriage of a 15-year-old Syrian girl to her 21-year-old cousin. The court ruled that the marriage was valid because it was contracted in Syria, where such marriages are allowed according to Islamic Sharia law, which does not set any age limit to marriage. The ruling effectively legalized Sharia child marriages in Germany.
The case came about after the couple arrived at a refugee shelter in Aschaffenburg in August 2015. The Youth Welfare Office (Jugendamt) refused to recognize their marriage and separated the girl from her husband. The couple filed a lawsuit and a family court ruled in favor of the Youth Welfare Office, which claimed to be the girl’s legal guardian.
The court in Bamberg overturned that ruling. It determined that, according to Sharia law, the marriage is valid because it has already been consummated, and therefore the Youth Welfare Office has no legal authority to separate the couple.
The ruling — which has been described as a “crash course in Syrian Islamic marriage law” — ignited a firestorm of criticism. Some accused the court in Bamberg of applying Sharia law over German law to legalize a practice that is banned in Germany.
“Religious or cultural justifications obscure the simple fact that older, perverse men are abusing young girls,” said Rainer Wendt, head of the German police union.
Monika Michell of Terre des Femmes, a women’s rights group that campaigns against child marriage, said: “A husband cannot be the legal guardian of a child bride because he is involved in a sexual relationship with her — a very obvious conflict of interest.”
The Justice Minister of Hesse, Eva Kühne-Hörmann, asked: “If underage persons — quite rightly — are not allowed to buy a beer, why should the lawmakers allow children to make such profound decisions related to marriage?”
Others said the ruling would open the floodgates of cultural conflict in Germany, as Muslims would view it as a precedent to push for the legalization of other Islamic practices, including polygamy, in the country.
Child marriage is a Germany-wide problem: 559 married children are living in Bavaria; 188 inNorth-Rhine Westphalia; more than 100 in Lower Saxony; and at least 100 in Berlin.
In Baden-Württemberg, the number of known child marriages jumped seven-fold in the past two years, from 26 in 2013 to 181 at the end of 2015. Of those, 162 are girls, and 18 are younger than 15 years of age.
The exact number of child marriages in Germany is unknown, partly because German authorities appear to have lost track of the identities or whereabouts of potentially hundreds of thousands of migrants. Of the 1.1 million migrants who entered Germany in 2015, only 477,000 have applied for asylum. The German government blames the discrepancy on an accounting problem, but others say that many migrants have gone underground to avoid being deported because they are not legitimate refugees fleeing war zones but economic migrants seeking a better life in Germany.
The Justice Minister of Baden-Württemberg, Guido Wolf, said foreign marriages should only be recognized if one partner is at least 16 years old and the other is 18, in line with existing German marriage law. Wolf described marriages contracted at 14 or 15 years of age as forced marriages. “I find it hard to believe that someone who is younger than 16 would decide autonomously and self-determinedly for marriage,” he said. Wolf has called for raising the legal age for all marriages in Germany to 18.
Members of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats and their Bavarian allies in the Christian Social Union have called for outlawing child marriage. A strategy paper states:
“An 11-, 13- or 15-year-old girl belongs not in marriage but in school. In the future, the principle must be the annulment of child marriages contracted abroad. The primacy of the child’s welfare and the equal treatment of men and women are pillars of our society and of our understanding of values. Child marriage is therefore absolutely incompatible.”
A proposed law, which will be submitted to the German parliament in November, would require all Youth Welfare Offices (Jugendämter) in Germany to report child marriages as soon as they become aware of them, and to bring all such cases before family courts so that they can be annulled. Judges would be allowed discretion to make exceptions only in cases where the wife is already close to the age of majority.
Bavarian Justice Minister Winfried Bausback said:
“This is not a question of tolerance and openness, but a question of the protection of children and minors. We therefore need a clear rule: To assess the marriageable age of a person — that is, the question of the age at which marriage can be contracted — will in the future always be determined by German law.”
Stephan Harbarth of the Christian Democratic Union called for child marriage to be abolished in Germany by the end of 2016. “According to our cultural perspective, child marriage is unacceptable,” he said. “The suffering of those affected requires quick action. Our proposals are on the table. We can immediately legislate. For us, family clans do not decide about a marriage. Rather, each individual does. We will not tolerate illegal Islamic parallel justice — not even in marriage.”
Child Marriage; A more ‘culturally acceptable’ way of saying ; “..Child Rape..”
After all, “Child Bride” sounds a lot better than “..Underage Child Rape Victim..”
