A U.S. announcement to press for a resolution condemning Israel’s building apartment buildings in Jerusalem and other parts of Israel will cause economic and other judgments on America according to an author of a book showing a pattern between pressing Israel to make concessions and recent disasters such as Katrina.
Foreign Policy magazine, which is published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a think tank in Washington D.C., reports that the U.S. has informed Arab governments of its intention to support a U.N. Security Council statement reaffirming the body “does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity.”
Turtle Bay states the Palestinian Authority rejected the American offer of support; saying they instead want a stronger statement calling the building projects illegal. The rejection could cause the Obama administration to cast its first veto in the U.N. Security council.
The administration has consistently put pressure on Israel to halt all new construction in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem. The policy appears to be a nod to the Palestinian Authority who has claimed all of Jerusalem as their capital.
U.S. officials have also reportedly been pressuring Israel to return the Golan Heights to Syria. Israel captured the territory in 1967. The area has a strong Jewish connection including being mentioned in the Bible as Bashan and was given to the tribe of Manasseh in the book of Joshua.
The concept of land for peace has been proposed by presidents of both parties. President George Bush said during a speech in Madrid, Spain in 1991, “Territorial compromise is essential for peace.” In 2001 George W. Bush instructed CIA director George Tenet to broker a cessation of Jewish construction projects in the “disputed areas.” The Obama administration has continued this policy of pressuring Israel to give up land as a condition of peace while expecting very little in concessions from the Palestinians.
Bill Koenig, co-author of a book titled “Israel the Blessing and the Curse,” warns the U.S. position of negotiating with the Palestinian Authority and pressuring Israel to give up land and building settlements has resulted in America suffering economic and natural catastrophes.
Koenig provided multiple examples to back up his claims. For instance, when Bush was giving his Madrid speech, an unusual storm developed off Nova Scotia. The storm was considered unusual because most storms originate in the tropics. Contrary to established patterns of a westward to eastward trajectory, this storm traveled a thousand miles in the opposite direction. On October 31 the storm came ashore with waves in excess of one hundred feet tall, the largest on record. The storm destroyed Bush’s home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
The storm subsequently moved down the coast all the way to Florida. This storm was the storm the movie, “The Perfect Storm” was patterned after. Adjacent headlines in USA Today read “One-on-one peace talks next!” and “East Coast hit by rare storm.”
Another example Koenig lists; Hurricane Andrew caused $30 billion of damage in Florida the same day Bush moved the Madrid conference to Washington with the theme “land for peace.”
In another example; less than 24 hours after President Bill Clinton’s 1994 quote, “Israel must make concessions that will be politically unpopular with many Israelis,” the 6.9 Northridge earthquake struck California. The quake was considered to be the second most deadly natural disaster to strike North America.
Other events listed as examples included Hurricane Emily’s striking North Carolina the same day Clinton announced a meeting with Yassar Arafat; in 1998, when Arafat met with Clinton, Hurricane George hit Alabama, stalled, and did not dissipate until Arafat left the country. On several other occasions where President Clinton met with Arafat the market unusually fell over 200 points.
On November 11 after Arafat gave a UN speech condemning Israel, American Airlines Flight 587 crashed less than 15 miles from where Arafat was speaking killing 265.
While Tenet was en route to Israel at the behest of George W. Bush, Tropical Storm Allison slammed ashore. After 10 days 28 counties were declared disaster areas. During the storm Houston received 28 inches of rain in a single day.
Dr. William Grady, author of “Understanding the Times: How Satan Turned America against God,” concurred with Koenig’s assessment saying, “The land in question belongs to Israel and God will not permit any nation to get away with giving away one square inch of land.” In his book he lists many more instances of similar events.
”While one or two of these events could be chalked up to coincidence, there comes a point when it is obvious there is a cause and effect relationship here.” Grady went on to say, based on the scriptures and past history, if the administration were to follow through on its threats to condemn Israel a similar event would befall the nation. He said, “When we consider the precarious state of the U.S. economy as well as the multitudes of winter storms around the country this should give us cause for concern.”
