Democrats Go After Christianity and Judaism’s Holiest Sites: New Bill Turns Over Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter, Western Wall and Christian Holy Sites to Palestinians

By Ezequiel Doiny

On September 26, 2021 Alan Dershowitz wrote in Gatestone Institute, “Just when Congress overwhelmingly defeated an effort by eight radical Democrats and one Republican to defund Israel’s Iron Dome defense system, several “mainstream” Democrats proposed legislation that is equally dangerous and filled with half-truths, omissions, and outright fabrications.

Congressman Andy Levin has introduced a bill called “The Two-State Solution Act” that purports to further the “two-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict… The bill declares that the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip are occupied territories and must be referred to as such by all American statements. It implies that the occupation is illegal and entirely the fault of Israel… Jerusalem is more complicated. The Old City’s Jewish Quarter and the Western Wall had been illegally occupied by Jordan between 1948 and 1967, and excluded Jews. When Jordan attacked Israel in June 1967, Israel liberated these ancient Jewish sites and opened them up to all. These are not occupied territories. Nor is the rest of East Jerusalem, which is part of a united city.”

East Jerusalem includes the Old City which includes the holiest sites of Christianity and Judaism’s Western Wall.

The Democrat’s bill violates the Oslo Accords that were facilitated by Bill Clinton which considered the territories “disputed”, not “occupied.” Barack Obama was the first to violate the Oslo Accords when he refused to veto UNSC 2334 on December 23, 2016 on his way out of office.

The Gateway Pundit wrote about this at the time.

Obama Admin Helped Write Anti-Israel, Anti-Christian UN Draft – Lobbied Nations to Get It Approved

On January 11, 2017 the Zionist Organization of America reported, “…This resolution has absurdly and shockingly labeled Judaism’s holiest places, such as the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, as “occupied Arab land.” It has also wrongly labeled Judea and Samaria, the Jewish Quarter, Hebrew University, Hadassah Hospital and the Mt. of Olives – the site of the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world – as “occupied Arab land.”

“Quite simply, Resolution 2334 has turned the truth on its head. It has also attempted to negate UN Resolution 242, Article 80 of the League of Nations, and the Oslo agreements, which proclaimed either that these areas are sovereign Jewish land or that negotiation between the parties are required to make a final determination of the status of these areas. Either way, a UN resolution cannot unilaterally decide…”

The Oslo Accords ruled that negotiations between the parties were required to determine the final status of the disputed areas, the UNSC violated the Oslo Accords when they imposed a pro-Palestinian resolution. The Jerusalem Post reported “While Palestinian officials have welcomed the resolution, characterizing it as “historic,” Israeli officials have rejected the resolution, calling it “shameful” and “scandalous.”

UNSC 2334 rules that even Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter and the Western Wall are in “illegally occupied Palestinian territories” but this is incorrect because according to the Oslo Accords the land is “disputed” not “illegally occupied.” The Oslo Accords said that the borders would be determined through direct negotiations between the parties, UNSC violated the Oslo Accords by imposing borders.

According to the Oslo Accords the settlements are not illegal. Clinton’s parameters for peace, based on the Oslo Accords, did not consider settlements “illegal” and contrary to Obama’s anti-Semitic UNSC 2334 Clinton made it clear that the Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter and the Western Wall would remain in Israel something he called “non-negotiable”.

It appears Democrats are up to their old tricks.
President Trump was the most pro-Israel US President in history.
Democrats want to change all of that.
