On May 19, 2011, Obama broke with long-standing US policy and completely sided with the Palestinians, by endorsing Palestinian demand for their own state based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War.
In effect, Obama demanded that Israel roll back its borders to pre-1967. That, in turn, means that, with the West Bank gone, Israel’s mid-section is severely narrowed. Lacking strategic depth, the state of Israel will be territorially indefensible, as you can see by the red arrow in this map:
Emboldened by Skippy’s speech, now the Palestinians are formally asking the United Nations General Assembly to approve for statehood for “Palestine”.
World leaders including Skippy and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are gathering in New York for the UN sessions and vote. The United Nations vote is expected on Friday, September 23rd.
Please stand with Israel by going HERE to sign this letter of support:
An Open Letter to:
— Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
— U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
— U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice
We, as citizens of the United States, reject Palestinian statehood. We stand with Israel’s right to secure its borders without giving away additional land to its self-proclaimed enemies who do not even recognize Israel’s right to exist as a nation. We declare the irrefutable fact that earlier “land for peace” agreements, such as the infamous Gaza withdrawals of 2005 and 2009, forcibly displaced thousands of families from their homes, served to increase terrorist attacks from even closer range, and led to the killing of many innocent men, women, and children.
We further declare that the United Nations’ “Peace Plan” for the region is NOT a plan for peace at all, but would dislocate at least 400,000 Jews from their homes and lands. No foreign country or United Nations resolution has the right to decide a nation’s borders!
Further, we acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s God-ordained, undivided capital, knowing that Israel’s sovereignty will protect the holy sites of all faiths, rather than allowing them to come under control of Hamas terrorists who hate both Jews and Christians alike.
We honor Israel as our most significant and most trusted friend and ally in the region and are grateful for the vital intelligence and technological advances emanating from Israel that have enhanced our own national security.
We, the undersigned, call upon the United Nations to reject the Palestinian National Authority’s request for statehood. We encourage President Barack Obama, the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Congress, and the whole body politic of the United States of America to stand unwaveringly with Israel, without taking any further actions that would jeopardize Israel’s sovereignty, safety, security, or borders.

H/t my friends Barbara & Bill.
Obama now is back-tracking. Financial Times (ft.com) reports that if Palestinians go ahead with an application to the Security Council, the Obama administration will veto it.
Meanwhile, Congress is readying a wave of measures that will strip funding not only from the Palestinian authority if the UN push succeeds, but also from all UN bodies. The most far-reaching measure put forward in a 153-page bill by the chairwoman of the House foreign affairs committee, Florida Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, makes US funding of UN agencies conditional on how the body votes on the statehood issue.
I say: Why make this contingent on Palestinian statehood?
Strip US funding from the United Nations NOW!!!!
