Three terrible tragedies occurred on Sunday, and I’ll bet you didn’t read about a single one
As the world gathered to create an agreement on climate change, we forgot the importance of this past Sunday. It was November 29, 1947 that the United Nations voted 33-13 to adopt UN Resolution 181(II) creating what we know today as the modern State of Israel.
Now we have a United Nations that votes 99 percent of the time against Israel — who can forget the silent stare of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the last UN General Assembly. And today we have a growing international BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement against Israel while we seek to relieve sanctions against the main supporter of Islamic terrorism that chants “death to Israel.” And it is Iran who supports the main antagonists of Israel, Hezbollah and Hamas. So 150 global leaders gathered in Paris to talk about the weather. How lovely.
Meanwhile back in Israel on November 29th, as reported by Haaretz, “A Border Policeman and a 30-year-old woman were wounded in two stabbing attacks in Jerusalem on Sunday morning.
The woman, who was stabbed in the back while waiting at a bus stop on Shmagar Street in Jerusalem, was named by Ynet as Hisorai Taplaya, 31, a foreign worker from Nepal. In the first incident, a Border Police officer, in his 20s, was wounded at the entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. The Palestinian assailant was shot and killed.
A few hours later, Magen David Adom rescue services reported another stabbing attack near a bus in the city. The victim was moderately wounded and the assailant fled the scene. A suspected assailant was detained later. The first attack occurred just before 8 A.M. near Damascus Gate. According to the Magen David Adom rescue services spokesman, the officer suffered light to moderate stab wounds to the upper body. He was evacuated to Hadassah University Hospital in Ein Karem.
The assailant, a Palestinian resident from the West Bank in his late 30s, came out of Damascus Gate and encountered two Border Police officers. The police report stated that he shouted “Allahu Akbar” and stabbed one of the officers in the neck.”
So what future is the climate change conference supposedly promoting? And here is a prime example of the response to the rebuke to terrorism of which President Obama spoke regarding the gathering in Paris.
