Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today called today’s UN resolution despicable and boldly declared Israel will not adhere to it.

He continued his strong stand by pointing out the hypocrisy of the United Nations anti-Israel actions.
“While the Security Council does nothing to prevent the massacre of half a million people in Syria, it is shamefully singling out Israel — the only democracy in the Middle East.” (Source: Times of Israel)
Then he blasted the Obama administration for betraying Israel and cooperating with Israel’s enemies.

Today’s UN resolution combined with Israel’s refusal to adhere to it pushes Israel into a position of further isolation from a world that is almost unanimous in its’ hatred for them. I believe this trend will continue as we get closer to the coming tribulation at the end of this age, which the Bible calls the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7).
Today’s resolution also means great trouble for the rest of the world, including the United States, because God Himself is the defender of Israel. The prophet Zechariah warned God would make Israel a heavy stone and all who lift it will be severely injured (Zechariah 12:3).
I believe what President Obama’s actions today were part of the fulfillment of what I saw in a dream in 2014. In that dream, God showed me President Obama is the man who fulfills the ancient prophecy recorded in Daniel 11:39, which says, “He will take action against the strongest of fortresses (the United States) with the help of a foreign god.” I believe history will show President Obama’s refusal to veto the resolution today was one of his most significant actions against the United States and perhaps the single most destructive so far, which is saying a lot considering his long list of destructive actions, including a government takeover of our health care system, appointing two radically anti-American Supreme Court justices, and more than doubling our national debt. History shows America has suffered severe consequences whenever we have pressured Israel to divide their land.
Hope for the Future:
After eight years of President Obama repeatedly telling them to divide their land and to stop building settlements within their own borders, Israel’s leaders are hopeful President-elect Trump will bring a change in U.S. policy. Trump sought unsuccessfully to postpone today’s vote. He was unable to influence the vote since he has not yet been inaugurated into office.
The photo shown above speaks volumes about the changes in U.S.-Israel relations with big smiles on the faces of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President-elect Donald Trump as they met in Trump’s home. No photo like this was ever taken during President Obama’s two terms. However, the UN resolution passed today will present immediate challenges for President-elect Trump.
Netanyahu said he is “looking forward to working with President-elect Trump and with out friends in Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, to undo the damage of this absurd resolution.” (Source: Times of Israel)
