UN totally supports Israel...the '67 version

Six-Day War (Not 800 x500!)It shouldn't be any surprise, says a pro-Israel activist, that Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas wants the United Nations to oversee "peace negotiations" with Israel.

The United Nations represents the "greatest anti-Israel organization on the planet," says Israel apologist Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries.

According to a senior Fatah official, the Palestinian people are "disillusioned and disappointed" with U.S.-led efforts to reach a peace agreement with Israel.

That suggestion comes at the same time President Donald Trump angered the Palestinians by proclaiming Jerusalem is the historic capital of Israel, with plans to move the U.S. embassy there.

Abbas, meanwhile, reportedly plans to ask the UN to announce a deadline for a full Israeli withdrawal to pre-1967 lines with a three-year window for the pullout, The Jerusalem Post reported

Jerusalem (aerial view)June, 1967 marks the so-called Six-Day War, when Israel was attacked by Arab countries - Jordan, Egypt, Syria, and Lebanon - but managed to beat them back.

The prize for that victory was Arab-held territory, including the West Bank and East Jerusalem that had been under Jordanian control. Including territories in the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights, Israel roughly doubled its territory and humiliated its neighbors. 

Markell, meanwhile, says it's unfortunate that a lot Americans, including American Christians, are influenced by the religious Left's claims that Palestinians are victims of Israeli persecution and land stealing.      

"Of course none of that is true," she insists, "but their minds have been warped."
