What would happen if the United Nations had declined to create Israel as a Jewish state because other Religious people have no homelands?
The United Nations was created to facilitate the creation of Israel.
Â It was necessary that a body representing the peoples of the world affirm the Jewish right to return to their land.
Â This is what they did. After that the exigencies of survival and historical imperative took over and the UN had no right to backtrack.
Â If the UN did not fulfill its task it would have lost its main rationale for existing.
Â It would then have been closed down and replaced with a similar body that would have done what it is supposed to!
Â The UN at present spends a good deal of its time in condemning Israel and spreading falsehoods about her.
Â The UN is therefore retracting its reason for existence. It is betraying itself.
Â Conclusions may be reached.
Â God promised the Land of Israel to the Israelite Nation.
Â Most of this people lost consciousness of their identity when the Ten Tribes were exiled.
Â The Jews remained and they still know who they are.
Â The Jews may not all be observant of the Torah but they are sufficiently loyal to be still considered Jewish.
Â They therefore have a legitimate claim to all the land from the Nile to the Euphrates.
Â Within that area the primary claim had to be, for now, the region west of the Jordan.
Â This is Israel as it now exists.
Â The UN should be doing something useful.
Â The UN should be helping Israel to emphasize the Jewish foundations of the State and to re-settle the so-called Palestinians in other parts of the world.
Â That would be a beginning.
