UN Jerusalem vote: General Assembly rules against US, declaring recognition of Israel capital ‘null and void’
In a humiliating blow for Donald Trump on the world stage, the United Nations General Assembly has voted by 128 to nine to declare his controversial decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “null and void”.
Just days after the US used its veto power at the UN Security Council to block a similar measure, the General Assembly resoundingly condemned the America’s unilateral action, which most observers said would hamper efforts to secure peace in the Middle East.
While the vote has little practical impact – it is not legally binding – it is a considerable embarrassment for the US as it reflects global opinion.
As the US licked its wounds, Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’s spokesman Nabil Abu Rdainah seized on what he said was a “victory for Palestine”.

Talk about spin!
In a humiliating blow for Donald Trump! As the US licked its wounds?
Really? Who writes this drivel.
What this vote from the United Nations shows is the global Anti-Israeli bias. My gosh even Britain voted for the measure. Thew same Britain that 100 years ago penned the Balfour Declaration!
Here’s what our president had to say, and frankly it’s about time someone stood up to what amounts to extortion from some of these countries.
Speaking to members of his cabinet on Wednesday, Mr Trump said he liked what Ms Haley had spelled out. “For all these nations, they take our money and then vote against us. They take hundreds of millions of dollars, even billions of dollars and then they vote against us,” Mr Trump said.
Bully for President Trump! Bully for Nicki Haley!
Prophecy tells us that in the later days Jerusalem will become a stumbling block to all the nations of the earth. Guess what? I think we’re there.
Why is this happening?
In my book The Cosmic Chess Match, I posit that the reason for the vitriol against Israel and the blatant anti-Semitism has a supernatural root.
The worlds Messiah—notice I didn’t say ours. He’s the Messiah of the entire world!—was born of a virgin, a Jewess, Mary. He, Jesus, traces his lineage to King David and then to Adam. He is the savior of the world and He has crushed the head of the serpent.
This is why the god of this world, Satan, hates the Jewish people. This is why for thousands of years they have been hunted and persecuted. Satan hates them because the one who crushed his head and took his kingdom away from him, thereby redeeming men and women, was a Jew, from the tribe of Judah.
It will be interesting to see how Trump responds to this “vote” from the bogus UN. will he stop the flow of money? Frankly I hope he does.
Enough of the charade and the tap-dancing around the issue.
Jerusalem will be and is the eternal capital of Israel.
What was written will come to pass. What was foretold is unfolding!

The current political landscape is in direct correlation to supernatural events that happened, in some cases, millennia ago. L. A. Marzulli 2007
Henry Kissinger stated years ago that the world was poised on the verge of a clash of civilizations. All one need to do is look at the events in Barcelona yesterday and realize his words have come to pass.
What the media doesn’t cover is that the current, ongoing, conflict stems from the ideology offered by two very different sets of supernatural occurrences. The west—although it has, for the most part, abandoned its Christian roots—was nevertheless founded on the Bible. The supernatural events that we read in those pages have colored the body-politic.
Conversely, Islam has greatly influenced the body-politic everywhere it has spread with the implementation of Sharia.
While the left tells us to be tolerant and labels anyone as an Islamaphobe who would warn that Sharia is completely antithetical to western values and thoughts, the killing and Jihad continues… unabated.
We are seeing the clash of civilizations. Period.
There are no solutions to stop it. No one can tell who is going to become radicalized and then decide to mow down innocent people in any given city anywhere in the world.
The killings will continue, they won’t stop. The Jihad will spread and countries like the England will succumb to Sharia. There are already no-go zones throughout Europe.
We are in a clash of ideals, the very fabric of our democratic way and our freedoms are at stake. Wake up America. The Jihad is here.
