The following brings you up to date on the
recent UN General Assembly vote
(133 to 1) against Israel's claim to Jerusalem.
The U.S. abstained -Canada voted against Israel's Claim to any part of Jerusalem (having the gall to tell Israel that its capital is Tel Aviv).
The exact full wording is available upon request, but we have confirmed the facts through both the Consul General of Israel in Toronto, & through Parliamentary research in Ottawa. The relevant wording is:
"The UN General Assembly recalling its' earlier (1994) decision in which it determined that all legislative and administrative measures and actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, which had altered or purported to alter the character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem, in particular the so-called "Basic Law" on Jerusalem and the proclamation of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, were null and void and must be rescinded forthwith". and recalling the earlier decision of the UN Security Council not to recognize Israel's 1980 law proclaiming Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel (nor the establishment by any nation of diplomatic missions at Jerusalem).
- Determines that the decision of Israel to impose laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem is illegal and therefore null and void and has no validity whatsoever,
- Deplores the transfer by some States of their diplomatic missions to Jerusalem in violation of Security Council resolution 478(1980), and their refusal to comply with the provisions of that resolution.
The formal vote was 133 (including Canada) to 1 ('Israel standing alone). Thirteen nations abstained, including the US (despite Congress's recent resolution to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem). Another part of the Resolution demands that Israel withdraw totally from the Golan Heights (standing between Israel & Syria).
Hear the Word of the Lord:Joel 3:2, Zechariah 12: 2,3,9,10, 14: 2,3,4,12
The climax and end of Gentile domination is at
the doors (Luke 21:24). The ungodly nations (Psalm 2) are about
to "reap the whirlwind" for their mistreatment of the
Jewish people while in their midst, and now even when back in the
Promised Land due to God's faithfulness. We need to warn the
nations, & particularly Canada's leaders & politicians,
as we did previously with respect to UN Resolution 3379
("ZIONISM IS RACISM) which was eventually rescinded.
For Canada the stakes are high, as some seek to divide our land too! If we partition Israel, and deny Jerusalem to Israel what can we expect in Canada but similar division and strife?
We will shortly issue a detailed plan of action. In the meantime write, phone or fax your MP, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, and our Prime Minister expressing your dissent & protest against Canada's vote at the UN.
Phone 1(613)992-4793 for your MP’s telephone or fax number.
