The UN Security Council Is About To Vote On A Palestinian State

Why are they being so quiet about this?  On Friday, the UN Security Council will take a vote which will determine whether or not “the State of Palestine” will be granted full UN membership.  If this vote is successful, that will formally create a Palestinian state that will have full recognition by the international community.  So this is a really big deal.  Algeria is the nation that has put this draft resolution forward, and it is scheduled for a vote at 3 PM Eastern time on Friday afternoon

The United Nations Security Council is scheduled to vote Friday on a Palestinian request for full U.N. membership, said diplomats, a move that Israel ally the United States is expected to block because it would effectively recognize a Palestinian state.

The 15-member council is due to vote at 3 p.m. (1900 GMT) Friday on a draft resolution that recommends to the 193-member U.N. General Assembly that “the State of Palestine be admitted to membership of the United Nations,” diplomats said.

It is being projected that 13 of the 15 members of the Security Council could vote in favor of this resolution, and so Israel is counting on the Biden administration to veto it

A council resolution needs at least nine votes in favor and no vetoes by the U.S., Britain, France, Russia or China to pass. Diplomats say the measure could have the support of up to 13 council members, which would force the U.S. to use its veto.

Just think about this for a moment.

The only thing standing in the way of a Palestinian state is Joe Biden.

Of course he actually wants a Palestinian state to be established, but he wants it to happen as a result of peace negotiations.

And after the current war in the Middle East is concluded, there will be an all-out push to achieve that goal.

For now, the war in the Middle East is poised to go to a dangerous new level.

Israel is preparing to retaliate against Iran, and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi is promising that even the “slightest action” by Israel will provoke a “painful response”

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has warned Israel it will face a “painful response” if it takes the “slightest action” in response to Iran’s unprecedented drone and missile barrage against the Jewish state over the weekend.

Iran’s first-ever direct attack on Israel on the night of Saturday-Sunday came in response to an April 1 air strike on Tehran’s embassy compound in Damascus that has been widely blamed on Israel.

So what would that “painful response” look like?

Well, Raisi has also said that “nothing would remain from the Zionist regime” after Iran was finished…

Raisi said Saturday’s attack was a limited one but that “nothing would remain from the Zionist regime,” should it escalate the current situation, the official IRNA news agency reported.

What he is describing is all-out war.

Right now, there are government billboards in Tehran which ominously declare that “Tel Aviv is our battleground”.

The Iranians are known for their bold talk, but in this case I don’t think they are bluffing.

I believe that they really will try to hammer Israel if there is any sort of an attack on Iranian soil, and one Iranian official is even warning that his nation is “prepared to use a weapon that we have never used”

But Iranian security chief Abolfazl Amouei last night warned that if Israel does respond then Tehran is “prepared to use a weapon that we have never used”.

It is unclear what weapon Amouei was referring to, but he warned Israel to “act wisely” as it considers its next steps.

There has been a lot of debate about how hard the Israelis should hit Iran.

But the truth is that Iran is going to strike back really hard no matter what form the attack takes.

And it appears that a decision has already been made.  In fact, on Wednesday British Foreign Secretary David Cameron openly admitted that it is “clear the Israelis are making a decision to act”.

During a visit to Israel, British Foreign Secretary David Cameron said Wednesday that while Israel has clearly decided to retaliate against Iran, he and other diplomatic leaders hope Israel shows restraint in its action. He added that, through sanctions, Iran “needs to be given an unequivocal message” by the G7, a forum of advanced economies that includes the U.S., Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Canada and Italy.

“It’s clear the Israelis are making a decision to act,” Cameron said in Jerusalem. “We hope they do so in a way that does as little to escalate this as possible.”

After meeting with Cameron and German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he appreciates their support and advice, but said Israel alone will decide how to protect itself and how to respond to the Iranian attack.

I think that it is true.

I think that the Israeli government has decided on a course of action.

But at this point I have a hard time believing that something is imminent.

Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread are coming up very quickly, and virtually the entire nation of Israel shuts down to celebrate.

The Israeli government knows that Iran will strike back really hard once an attack happens, and having Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread ruined by Iranian missiles would be very unpopular politically.

So my guess is that any Israeli retaliation against Iran will be delayed until May.

Of course I could be wrong.

We shall see.

Meanwhile, on the northern front Israel and Hezbollah continue to pummel one another.

On Wednesday, mass casualties were caused when a Hezbollah drone hit a community center in northern Israel

Israeli emergency authorities are reporting that casualties from a suicide drone attack on a northern Israeli village have risen to at least 18 people wounded.

Hezbollah took responsibility for launching the suicide drone which ultimately scored a direct hit on a community center, with Israeli media noting that air warning sirens failed to sound during the attack. However, Hezbollah claimed it was targeting a building used by the Israeli military.

According to Times of Israel, “The victims were taken to Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya. which said that one victim was listed in critical condition and two others were seriously wounded.”

In response, the IDF conducted an airstrike in northeastern Lebanon

The Israel Defense Forces said Wednesday that it carried out an airstrike against a site belonging to Hezbollah’s air defense unit in northeastern Lebanon’s Baalbek, hours after the terror group carried out an explosive drone attack on northern Israel, wounding 14 soldiers and four civilians,

In a short statement, the IDF said fighter jets struck Hezbollah air defense infrastructure north of the city of Baalbek, almost 100 kilometers (60 miles) from the Israeli border.

It appears that it is just a matter of time before there is all-out war between Israel and Hezbollah.

And we are also on the verge of seeing all-out war between Israel and Iran.

The great Middle East conflict that I have been warning my readers about has arrived, and I believe that in the months ahead events will spiral completely out of control.

Once thousands of missiles are flying back and forth, the opportunity for restraint will be gone.

And at this absolutely critical moment in human history, Joe Biden and his minions are running things in the White House.

We are in so much trouble.
