Talk has been wildly circulating for several months now about the United Nations declaring an Arab "Palestinian" state in September. Plans are underway for the UN General Assembly to pass a resoluition to declare "Palestine" to be a new, independent state, in lieu of the unwillingness of Israel to simply give away half of their little bit of land for the occupying Arabs to have another Arab state of their own.

It will require a two-thirds vote, or 128 votes in the General Assembly to pass the resolution, and the Palestinians have stated that they already have assurances of 120 of the 128 votes needed. However, the declaration will not be "legal" unless the UN Security Council also agrees. Israel is counting on the United States to veto the proposal in the Security Council, but the Palestinians are hoping that US President Barack Obama will side with the Arabs and Moslems and make the US approve.

Our hearty congratulations, praise, and thanks go to Greece this week. The Greek government pulled off a great surprise by blocking the attempted departure from Greece of the "flotilla" of nine ships that were to be headed to the Gaza territory of Israel to challenge Israel's maritime blockade of Gaza.

Yes, it was a pleasant and unexpected surprise to see another Middle East country take some pro-Israel action for a change. The entire Middle East has always been strongly pro-Arab and anti-Israel, mainly because of the dominant Arab population in the area.

Barack Obama believes he was elected to the United States presidency with a mandate for change. But he does not seem to realize that this mandate was not intended for U.S. relations with Israel.

He recently spoke out again with dictation to Israel to give half of their precious little national land to occupying Arabs, so those supposedly poor, abused Arabs can have their own independent state. He dictated again that Israel should return to the pre-1967 Six Day War borders. And he had the audacity to add that they should do this within 30 days.

We have been wondering what "the Arab Spring" is really all about. Media commentators have elatedly described the many Arab street protests and the widespread uprisings against tyrannical Arab Moslem leaders as "the Arab Spring." They say that the common people are supposedly rebelling to obtain democracy, fighting for freedom and liberty such as we have in America. Are they right or wrong?

From our perspective, all we have seen so far is some limited successful efforts to remove tyrannical Arab Moslem national leaders from control, but no efforts to get at the real root of the problems. Yes, the people seem to want more freedom and less repression in their daily lives, but we don't see any great movement to overthrow their repressive Islamic laws.
