NEW 1:
WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Was it a speech to help launch his campaign for re-election, or an address to bury hopes for immediate Palestinian statehood recognition?
Both assessments marked the immediate reaction to President Obama’s speech Wednesday at the United Nations General Assembly, and there was ammunition for both arguments. But both also may have missed the point: The speech smacked of what has become an Obama specialty: the “get real speech.”
In this case, his target appeared to be the United Nations and its constituent members. The bottom line of the Israeli-Palestinian portion of the speech -- 635 words out of 4,500 -- was that dismissing real Israeli concerns about security was not a good way to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
“The Jewish people have forged a successful state in their historic homeland. Israel deserves recognition,” Obama said after outlining the array of threats that Israelis have faced in recent years, including rocket attacks and suicide bombers. “It deserves normal relations with its neighbors. And friends of the Palestinians do them no favors by ignoring this truth, just as friends of Israel must recognize the need to pursue a two-state solution with a secure Israel next to an independent Palestine.”
This Obama characteristic -- presenting himself as a truth teller -- has rankled rivals. Some critics in the United States and Israel have described it as arrogance.
But in the context of the Palestinian efforts this week to achieve statehood recognition, there was only gratitude from Israeli and Jewish leaders, who thanked Obama for making it clear to the assembled world leaders that pre-emptive Palestinian statehood would not get anywhere.
“You’ve also made it clear that the Palestinians deserve a state, but it’s a state that has to make that peace with Israel,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at an appearance with Obama after the president delivered the speech. “And, therefore, their attempt to shortcut this process, not negotiate a peace -- that attempt to get membership, state membership in the United Nations -- will not succeed.”
The speech was underpinned by U.S. efforts to draw away enough votes to make a difference on the issue of statehood recognition for the Palestinians. If fewer than nine of the 15 U.N. Security Council nations vote for statehood, the United States would not have to exercise its veto in the council. If the Palestinians attempt to achieve enhanced status through the General Assembly, they will likely gain the necessary majority -- but votes against or abstentions by European and Western nations would rob them of a moral victory.
“If the Palestinians are truly serious about a viable two-state deal, they should stop the counterproductive brinksmanship at the U.N. and return to the negotiating table now,” said David Harris, the director of the American Jewish Committee.
Harris and his counterparts at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the Anti-Defamation League and B’nai B’rith International all praised Obama’s speech.
Advocates of greater pressure on Netanyahu to make concessions to the Palestinians said Obama’s speech reeked of electioneering at a time when the Obama campaign is trying to reach out to the Jewish community to staunch the loss of Jewish support.
“Obama to UN. Israelis and Jews suffer. Palestinians, not so much. Full court pander 2 lobby,” Tweeted M.J. Rosenberg, a columnist with the liberal Media Matters website.
Others detected a note of despair from a president who has tried from his first day in office to restart talks.
“Regrettably, the president’s words offered very little in the way of hope to Israelis and Palestinians,” Americans for Peace Now said. “The United States cannot maintain credibility as the standard-bearer of rights and freedoms while the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is left to fester."
Obama prides himself, perhaps to a fault, on telling his listeners what he considers to be uncomfortable truths. He unsettled Arab listeners in his June 2009 Cairo speech by lecturing them about the futility of Holocaust denial. People involved in crafting that speech have said there was a recognition that the Muslim world anticipated a love fest but that the president thought it important to address what he sees an obstacle to Muslim-Western reconciliation.
Likewise, when Obama spoke to the annual AIPAC conference in May, he reiterated his call from several days earlier calling on Israel to negotiate on the basis of the 1967 lines, with mutually agreed swaps. Many conference-goers had hoped Obama would offer a more conciliatory speech to the pro-Israel crowd.
The Washington Convention Center fell silent when the president outlined a bleak future should Israel not come to the talks table and implicitly criticized Netanyahu for offering too little to make a difference.
“The march to isolate Israel internationally -- and the impulse of the Palestinians to abandon negotiations --- will continue to gain momentum in the absence of a credible peace process and alternative,” he said. “And for us to have leverage with the Palestinians, to have leverage with the Arab states and with the international community, the basis for negotiations has to hold out the prospect of success.”
At the United Nations on Wednesday, however, Obama focused on what the Palestinians and the Arab world need to offer the Israelis: security assurances.

Dear Joseph,
Tomorrow, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas intends to introduce a resolution seeking unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state at the United Nations.
Thankfully, the United Nations will also hear from others tomorrow.  Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will address the world body in order to "tell the truth." 
CUFI has been telling the truth about Israel and the Middle East conflict since our birth 5 ½ years ago.  Over the past few weeks, we've taken the lead in telling the truth about the Palestinian Authority’s cynical UN ploy.  
Since last Thursday, CUFI activists have sent more than 45,000 emails to President Obama asking him to keep his pledge to oppose this Palestinian resolution and urging him to assert the full diplomatic might of the United States in this effort. 
Since Tuesday, over 50,000 CUFI activists have sent emails to Prime Minister Netanyahu reminding him that when he enters the "lions den" of the UN General Assembly, he will not stand alone.  He will have millions of Christian supporters standing with him.
And so far this month, we've held 31 pro-Israel events in cities, towns and campuses from coast to coast to educate Christians about the latest threats to Israel and how they can best fight back.   
We know of no other organization that is able to stand up for Israel in such large numbers in so many communities across the country.  But these results don't come cheap.  It's only through the support of members like you that we've been able to build a powerful, national grassroots movement that can make a difference in Israel's time of need.  And it's only with your continued support that we'll be able to grow ever stronger to meet the ever growing threats to Israel. 
We know that Israel's enemies are escalating their attacks on the Jewish State.  We intend to escalate our support.  We pray that you will help us rise to this historic challenge. 
With blessings to you and those you love.

Dear DHFC Supporter,

Israel is under New York City at the United Nations meeting.

I wrote earlier this week asking you to join the Freedom Center's "Save Israel" Campaign. I'm writing again today because the stakes have been raised. Unless concerned citizens like you and me rally around Israel, this week may very well mark the beginning of the end of her existence.

I mentioned in my last letter that the Freedom Center is publishing 10 Reasons to Abolish the UN-- a pamphlet that shows the moral lunacy of this organization being allowed to stand in judgment over a country such as Israel. We are also publishing another important work-- Stolen History: How the Palestinians and their Allies Attach Israel's Right to Exist by Erasing its Past by David Meir-Levi. This pamphlet show how the attack on Israel increasingly includes an Orwellian effort by pro-Palestinian left's archaeologists, historians, and scriptural scholars to deny Israel's very historical existence!

We plan to distribute these pamphlets to over 500 Universities and Colleges across America and send them to every member of Congress, media outlets and concerned citizens. Our goal is to have 500,000 copies of these vitally important works distributed in the next month, beginning with emergency mailings this week as the UN treachery begins. That means we must raise $50,000 in the next 48 hours to cover printing and distribution costs.

For your immediate tax-deductible donation of $25 or more, I'll rush you copies of 10 Reasons to Abolish the UNand Stolen History: How the Palestinians and their Allies Attach Israel's Right to Exist by Erasing its Past.Please follow this link right away to make the most generous contribution you can afford to the Freedom Center's "Save Israel" Campaign.

With the effort intensifying to make the only democracy in the Middle East a pariah state, many have asked what America's role has been? I'm ashamed to tell you that we've made matters worse. Barack Obama fired the first shot in the war that will climax this week in New York when said in Cairo two years again that a peace in the Israeli-Palestinian "conflict" was a precondition for solving all other problems in the Middle East--exactly the position of all of Israel's enemies in the region!

Obama fired the second shot a few months ago when he demanded that Israel pull back to the indefensible borders that existed before the 1967 Six Day War. American Presidents since Harry Truman have been careful not to take such a reckless step. No wonder the Israelis are asking themselves why, with a friend like Obama, do they need enemies? You can read more about the attacks on Israel in Stolen History, soplease make your donation of $25 or more right away.

As the drama of Israel's isolation reaches a climax this week, I desperately need your help to send a message to the corrupt and anti-Semitic UN and to a White House deeply unsympathetic to the idea of a Jewish State--Never again.

Whether you can give $25 or $2,500-- your support is invaluable. Thank you in advance for continuing to stand with Israel and the Freedom Center.


David Horowitz
President & Founder

P.S. Stand up for Israel—and democracy—by supporting the Freedom Center's "Save Israel" Campaign with a generous, tax-deductible contribution today. Please follow this link to give $25 or more and I'll rush you a copy of our two new pamphlets: 10 Reasons to Abolish the UN and Stolen History: How the Palestinians and their Allies Attach Israel's Right to Exist.

NEW 4:
The bigots and anti-Semites of the world came together as one yesterday to denounce Israel--and you and me--as racists.  Those of us--Zionists--who believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in peace and safety in their ancient homeland...are  described as the worst sort of racists in the modern world!

It is an outrage.  They are crucifying Israel, trying to destroy this tiny nation surrounded by a sea of enemies.  They readily admit that a Palestinian state is  just a "first step" in their plan to destroy the Jewish state.  This battle is not over land or borders or settlements; it is over the survival of Israel.  It must be understood in this light, and those of us who know the truth must speak out now before it is too late.

I urgently need your help today.  We have prepared an ad to support Israel that we want to run in major papers across the country--especially in Washington and New York City.  These ads will be seen by the leaders of our nation and the leaders of the world...but even more importantly, they will be seen by God-fearing Believers who will join us in fervent intercession for the protection of Israel from her enemies.


It will cost about $84,000 to run this ad in the Washington Post and $139,000 to run it in the New York Times.  So far $28,000 has come in toward this project.  This is a major expense, but I believe it is worth it to send a message to both our leaders and Believers all over the country...but we can't do it without your help.  I am in New York fighting for Israel.  Please, if you are ever going to do something great for God, now is the time.  Will you help sponsor this ad with your gift today?  Will you stand for Israel and help us encourage our leaders to do the same?  Will you help win the battle for Israel's survival?


The bottom line is this...while a Security Council veto would deny the Palestinians official member status they can also seek upgraded observer status at the General Assembly as a non-member state. 

This could be interpreted as implicit UN recognition of Palestinian statehood because the assembly would be acknowledging that the Palestinians control an actual state. The advantage of this option is that it would require only a simple majority of the General Assembly. Since around 120 countries have already recognized the state of Palestine to date, it would likely win such a vote overwhelmingly.

If the Palestinians were to be recognized as a non-member state, they would be able to sign certain international treaties, such as the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which they cannot currently sign.  This will mean thousands of lawsuits against Israel and isolation and demonization of the State of Israel. 

Every child of God must fight this battle in prayer.  This is a spirit battle led by Satan himself...please join me right now in binding that spirit in the name of JESUS...and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

We must continue our national campaign to alert people to the danger posed--not just to Israel but to America as well--by the Obama Administration's plan to divide Jerusalem and curse Israel. I need your financial support in order to be able to go to attend these two major events--the UN General Assembly meeting and the Durban III conference.  I have just returned from speaking to the world from Israel, and I must stand for Israel in the face of opposition from nearly the entire world.

Please join me right now and pray a commanded blessing over every one who gives to help defend Israel.  "Father, open the windows of Heaven and pour out a blessing on those who have given that they will not have room to contain, and rebuke the devourer for their sake in the name of Yeshua--Jesus, Amen."


Now is our moment.  This is our time.  God has brought us together for this defining crossroads moment of human history.  Will you help me stand for Israel?  Will you pray for God's blessing and protection for me on this vital trip?  Will you give to meet the needs of the Jewish people and allow me to continue to stand for them on the world stage? 

Every nation and individual that supports the plan to curse Israel and steal from her the land God promised the Jews as an eternal possession will suffer His chastisement and judgment.  Every nation and individual that opposes this plan and stands with Israel as a blessing to her will enjoy His blessing.  That is why we have launched a national campaign to rally opposition to the Obama Administration's plan, to expose the anti-Semitism that lies behind world efforts to curse Israel, and to support the Jewish people.  Your gift today to bless Israel is urgently needed.


America is on a prophetic countdown to the gravest days in our history.  In a few days, a vote will be taken at the United Nations that will force America to choose between standing with Israel and standing with her enemies.  Israeli leaders have asked the Jerusalem Prayer Team for its support at the United Nations and a week later as the nations of the world gather for the demonic Durban III conference to continue accusing Zionists of being racists.  The first Durban Conference occurred in 2001.  At that conference, the Palestinians distributed copies of the anti-Semitic "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" to all delegates.  It was the most evil, anti-Semitic UN assembly ever against Israel.

The conference ended on September 8, 2001...and 72 hours later, the US was attacked by Radical Islam. I can assure you that in the spirit realm, this was no coincidence. God's Word promises a curse on any nation that touches Jerusalem.  Once before, an American President attempted to divide Jerusalem and surrender the Temple Mount to radical Islam.  That president was Bill Clinton.  Now President Obama plans to do the same--this time by formally recognizing a Palestine State at the UN in September within days of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
I do not believe for a second that all the economic and political turmoil America is going through is coincidental.  America needs Divine intervention that can only come from God's people standing in the gap like Esther.  I am asking every Jerusalem Prayer Team member to stand up to Jew hatred like Corrie ten Boom and her family did in Holland during the Holocaust. 

In my new book, "The Protocols," I reveal how so many of the modern expressions of anti-Semitism trace their roots back to "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion."  I wrote this thriller, "The Protocols," to expose to the world the fact that although it was uncovered as a forgery not long after it was written, millions of people today still accept it as truth...and act on that false belief.  My new book is a chilling look at how the tentacles of hatred of Jews reach even into our own country. 



When you send your gift of $30 or more, we will send you a copy of "The Protocols."  This powerful book explains the anti-Semitism behind the plot to divide Jerusalem and curse Israel.  If you are able to send a gift of $80 or more, we will send you an autographed hardback copy.  This is the truth that our world most urgently needs to hear today. 

If you are able to send a gift of $150 or more for this national campaign, we will send you a beautiful silver finish menorah in addition to the autographed hardback copy of "The Protocols."  This ancient symbol of God's presence among His people will be a constant reminder to you and to all those who see it of your support for the Jewish people and the nation of Israel and a wonderful reminder to you to continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  If you are able to send a gift of $1,000 or more, we will send you the book, the menorah, and a beautiful, large hand-crafted silver-trimmed shofar.  It is a museum-quality piece and will be a constant expression of your love for the Chosen People.



The Jerusalem Prayer Team has set up a dedicated prayer wall especially for this campaign to defend Israel.  Post your prayers that God will guide your nation and turn the hearts of your leaders toward Israel...that He will grant Israel His favor and guard and defend His Chosen People.  Your prayers will be an encouragement to others, and we ask that you take a moment to share your prayers for the Jewish state...and that you continue to pray faithfully for the peace of Jerusalem.


Your support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team makes it possible for us to continue to stand for Israel on the world stage, to rally Believers across the globe to join in fervent intercession for Israel, and to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of the Chosen People.  Thank you so much for being part of the team.

Barukh atah Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam, ozier Yisrael bigvurah.

Blessed art thou, Lord our God, King of the universe, who girds Israel with might.

Your ambassador to Jerusalem,

It's been a few weeks since I've updated you on my bill to cut off U.S. military funding to governments who recognize a Palestinian state in the upcoming United Nations vote. I'm proud to let you know that momentum is building. The legislation has been formally introduced and we've been able to garner national press attention for the legislation.

This legislation will send a message that you cannot come to Congress and ask us to fund your military efforts then head to the UN and vote against our national interests at the United Nations. That is an incredibly dangerous path and only seeks to put one of America's most important strategic allies at risk.

Watch my interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell to see me discuss why I'm fighting to protect Israel!
Click here for Andrea Mitchell Interview

This UN vote is nothing but a political stunt. If Palestinian leaders truly wanted to achieve statehood right now then they would be negotiating with Israel.
For decades, Israel has been a patient, active participant in the peace process. Israel has given plenty of concessions. Now, in spite of the fact that the Peace Process is ongoing, Palestinian leaders are suddenly trying to pre-emptively go to the United Nations? It doesn't make sense and it's why I'm fighting so hard to ensure this resolution fails.

But my bold action on this issue has made me a target of those who are seeking to deny the Peace Process time to work. We need to be ready to prepare ourselves for the upcoming attacks. Can I count on you to have my back in this fight?

The campaign to de-legitimize Israel is in full force this week at the UN.

The world is about to strike Israel with a "one-two punch"!

The Palestinians are about to unilaterally declare the creation of a Palestinian state inside the borders of Israel with much of the world's backing and blessing.

At the same time, the UN sponsored Durban III "anti-racism" conference is actually a forum to promote racism, intolerance, anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial, and to erode freedom of speech and Israel's right to exist.

In summary, the world will once again be lead to believe that Israel is an anti-peace, occupying, racist regime that persecutes Palestinians and has forfeited its legitimate right to exist within secure borders.

We know that nothing could be further from the truth, but the world does not!

The "flotilla" incident and Turkey's aggressive campaign of lies was another attempt to de-legitimize Israel. United with Israel, in cooperation with the IDF and Israel's Foreign Ministry lead the effort to teach the world the TRUTH about the flotilla. And about why Israel has every right to defend itself against acts of aggression.

United with Israel's massive global reach is the greatest weapon that Israel has to fight the battle of world opinion. This effort takes time, dedication and hard work  from our devoted, highly trained staff. United with Israel runs aggressive 'alternative media' campaigns to fight against the extreme anti-Israel bias in the mainstream media.

The enemies of Israel have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to de-legitimize Israel and spread lies. Now it's time to help United with Israel spread the TRUTH to hundreds of millions of people around the world who simply don't know the facts.

In anticipation of the imminent "one-two punch" that Israel will suffer in the coming days, we ask that you be our partner and donate generously to help United with Israelteach the world the TRUTH about Israel. And to combat the anti-Israel smear campaign in the UN and throughout the world.

Please help us to expand our global network of pro-Israel activists. So that billions of people around the world can learn the TRUTH. And when they do, they too will proudly stand United with Israel.

NEW 7:

On September 23 the Palestinian Authority (P.A.) will officially close the door to a peace process that began nearly two decades ago by seeking statehood unilaterally at the U.N. General Assembly (UNGA). UNGA resolutions are not legally binding, but the recognition of a Palestinian state at the General Assembly will hurt Israel diplomatically, undermine its ability to perform security operations in the West Bank, and will influence the U.N. Security Council – whose resolutions are legally binding – to recognize a Palestinian state.
The General Assembly is made up of 192 countries, all of which are U.N. members. A majority are Arab and Third World nations that are anti-Israel and have historically passed a disproportionate amount of resolutions condemning Israel. This practice can be traced back to 1974, when the UNGA passed the infamousZionism is Racism” resolution. Since a General Assembly vote has no legal standing, and because the Obama administration has already stated that it will veto Palestinian statehood if it reaches the Security Council, what will the Palestinian Authority gain from pursuing this?
I asked this question to my fellow Israelis and was intrigued by their response. Many people I spoke with think that the P.A.’s real motive is to drive a wedge between Israel and the U.S., and to further isolate Israel internationally. The P.A. believes that if Israel loses the support of the U.S., it will no longer have the ability to defend itself, and it will only be a matter of time before Israel is weakened to a point of submission.
Elad, a former paratrooper in the Israeli army, views the upcoming U.N. vote as another chapter in the P.A.’s diplomatic warfare against Israel. “The P.A.’s push for statehood after refusing to negotiate for over two years forces the U.S. to choose between supporting Israel or joining the U.N. majority in voting for a Palestinian state,” he said.
Adding to the pressure on the United States is Saudi Arabia, America’s most important Arab ally, which has made it clear that the U.S. will pay a heavy price if it does not vote in favor of a Palestinian state. After recent statements made by former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates calling Israel an “ungrateful ally,” many Israelis wonder if the U.S.-Israel relationship can withstand the pressure.
“I think Obama will veto a Palestinian state at the U.N.,” Elad stated, “but he will want something in return from Israel.” That “something,” most Israelis fear, is more concessions to the Palestinians.
I know that many Americans love Israel and will forever stand with the Jewish State. Therefore, no matter what happens in the U.N. this month, I have full faith that the God of Israel will protect His nation, and award the people who stood by her through thick and thin.
