Obama As Haman Takes Another Step Toward Allowing UN Vote On Palestinian Statehood

President Obama took a step toward a tougher line with Israel in an interview released Tuesday, raising the possibility that the U.S. will allow a United Nations vote on issues related to the Palestinians if the two sides make no meaningful movement toward peace.

“So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.” Esther 7:10 (KJV)

In an interview with an Israeli television station, Obama noted that his administration has “up until this point” quashed such efforts at the U.N. while insisting that the Israelis and Palestinians must negotiate a resolution. But he said it is a challenge for the U.S. to keep demanding that the Palestinians negotiate in good faith if no one believes the Israelis are doing the same.


“How do we move off what appears right now to be a hopeless situation and move it back towards a hopeful situation?” Obama asked in the interview. “That will require more than just words. That will require some actions. And that’s going to be hard work, though, because right now I think there’s not a lot of confidence in the process.”

The comment was the latest sign that Obama has concluded that the U.S. must rethink its stance on the Mideast peace process if it is to maintain credibility in the world.

His thinking on the matter was clearly spurred this spring by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s stand against Palestinian statehood during his election campaign. Even though Netanyahu has since publicly reversed his position, Obama said in the interview that Israel “as a whole loses credibility” on the point. source

    Ok. My only question is how can the U.S. allow a United Nations vote on issues related to the Palestinians? The U.S. doesn’t control the United Nations.

    • Wendy

      Hey, Eddie~~~ good question!

    • Rob Green

      The U.S. as one of the Permanent Member States has the right to veto which cannot be overturned. This means the resolution or decision cannot be approved.

  • Mayito

    It is not shocking when we see what this president has done during his kingdom here on the USA, how many times he has belittled Israel? I have lost count.

  • The U.N. , E.U. and Obama are all Anti-Israel / Anti-Zionism / Very Antisemitism / Anti-Christian and Jewish People / Anti-Christians ( Antichrists )( 1 John 4:3 KJV )!!

  • eddie santana

    Its a well-known fact that the world doesn’t like or is jealous of the Jewish people. The jealous one’s themselves might not even know why, but root cause is that the devil has a special vendetta against God’s First Family. So it should be no surprise.

    This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

  • Wendy

    I have a question: since we all tend to agree that the Rapture happening RIGHT NOW would be a great thing (minus the pain of unsaved loved ones), do you think it’s something that we should literally be praying for

    He SAYS to ASK for what we want. We want Heaven….in the form of a pre-Trib Rapture, perhaps, don’t we?? So many of us say, “COME Lord Jesus!!” Or “Maranatha!!(Myself included). Ask yourself, perhaps: If I join in and say that, Do I say it I a wistful, hopefully manner, or is it a supplication to our dear God?

    If we REALLY want Heaven NOW, is it reasonable to pray for it, or would that be dumb or selfish? Obviously, God will do His planned will……but He’s DOES SAY to ask…..

  • gumply

    He is acting like Haman isn’t he? Actually that is not a good thing is it, because we all know what happened to Haman in the end.

    • Estrella de David

      That is what awaits Barry Soetoro…

  • truth seeker

    Thia probably won’t go through. Someone is atopping postings…Watch for War of Psalm 83 this September and “release of debt every seventh year”.

  • eddie santana

    Wendy, those are perfectly reasonable, heart-felt questions. In the model prayer, Jesus in Matt. 6:9-13 tells us part of what we should pray about. Notable in the prayer is “thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in heaven.” Also notable is “forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.”
    I John 5:14:15 says that if we ask anything “according to his will” He hears us.
    And then again in I John 5:16 says, “If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that.”
    And finally, Jesus says in Matt. 24:20 “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:” talking about the anti-christ being revealed and people having to run for their lives.

    That’s a little about how we should pray. I think God takes all our prayers seriously, though, since He loves to hear from us and see our display of faith.

  • truth seeker

    As long as the devil can stop the Jews from accepting Yeshua, he can remain in power. That’s why he is trying so hard to annihilate them…Praise God, thanks to a dead rabbi the blindness is ctarting to come off (Romans 11:25)…Please pray for the peace in Jerusalem.

  • eddie santana

    If that’s how it works, then I get it.

  • eddie santana

    If you’re talking about Jesus, He’s the risen Rabbi, not dead Rabbi. The grave could never hold Him.

  • edwitness

    Peace will come when Jesus brings it and not before. But they will try to counterfeit it for sure. Keep looking up!

  • truth seeker

    eddie, it is obvious that Yeshua (Jesus) is not the dead rabbi but the Lion of Judah and God, the great creator (John 1)…The dead rabbi is Yitzhak Kiduri, who died at 108, leaving behind a note that says that the Messiah is Yeshua… This has caused a stir in Israel and many Jews are now accepting Yeshua as their Messiah.

  • eddie santana

    Ah, ok. That makes more sense. That’s very cool.

  • ben

    Why is obama looked at as haman? Bible and qu ran scripture of past quotes used in the present to describe a mortal man like all of us trying to defuse a very tough situation that no one else is in the position to handle. He is basically unravelling George Bush’s mess through peaceful negotiation.

  • eddie santana

    Dude, you just blamed our government mess on George Bush just like people are blaming it on Obama. You’re feeding the blame game just as well. Now you understand.

  • truth seeker

    eddie, ben is an Obama operative and, believe it or not, we are paying for his BS with our taxes…Obama has nearly doubled the national debt by himself and added millions to our unemployed (now at a record 103,000,000)… He has nationalized half of our economy and driven down our wages to new lows… The economy is in trouble, thanks to Obama…As for the international scene, he has created new enemies and is setting the world on fire…He is overthrowing secular governments all over the Middle East and Africa and setting up Jihadist governments determined to annihilate Israel. He may get his wish for a Middle East war at the end of the 3014-2015 Tetrad (Psalm 83)…He is trying to start a world war in the Ukraine and Asia by provoking both the Russians and Chinese…We have never had so many enemies as we do now.

  • Allan Rowley

    The Illuminati/Jesuits want their man in Jerusalem, maybe it is the present world leader, the Pope. The puppets like O are just doing their job, “creating a Palestine state with the HQ being East Jerusalem.”
    It is all in the Bible. The next event is a financial crash in Sept then most likely the Psalm 83 war followed by WWIII.
    If the Messiah is a Hebrew you best call Him by His Hebrew name if you want to abide with Him in heaven or walk with Him here on earth, His name is Yahushua.
    Yah, being the operative word alingning to Yahuweh.

  • truth seeker

    Allan, Obama is more than a puppet but the leader of the Islamic caliphate coming up against Israel sometime after the 2014-2015 Tetrad…He will suffer major defeat and the Arab cities will be annihilated (Psalm 83, Isaiah 17:1 and Amos 1-2)…After this war, the Roman Prince of Daniel 9:26-27 will probably make his appearance and broker the treaty that will allow the Jews to either erect their tabernacle or build their third temple in the northern part of the Temple Mount (Ezekiel 42:20)…Forty-two months after the seven year covenant of Daniel 9:27 is confirmed, the world will see World War Three (Ezekiel 38-39) and the death of one-quarter of the world’s population from warfare and after-effects of nuclear warfare (Revelation 6:4 and 8)…The rapture will probably occur in the shadow of World War Three (Isaiah 57:1).

  • ben

    None of this matters love god with all your heart mind and soul.
    Not one man among us today can fulfill prophecy from God.

    None of this matters.

    God is not violence,murder,or fear.

  • truth seeker

    ben, did you get the day off rewriting Obama’s terrible legacy?…Of course, eschatology matters. We are blessed when we know where we are going and are planning accordingly (Revelation 1:3).

    • ben

      I’m not really the man writting the story. I have a better life focused on where I am going with god. My life is not political. Nor do I forsee my future in any doom.

  • edwitness


    Have you ever considered that the covenant that is confirmed might have been confirmed by Jesus? And that the final week is already half gone because Jesus caused the sacrifices and oblations to cease in the middle from their ability to cleanse those who do them?
    I believe this is why we only find references of 1260 days and 42 months in Revelation.

  • truth seeker

    edwitness, please note that it is the Roman Prince, not the Messiah, who will confirm the seven year covenant with many and will cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease in the “midst” of the seven years (Daniel 9:26-27)…For your information, the 70th week of Daniel 9:24-27 is determined upon the Jews…Yeshua’s ministry completed the first half before being “cut” at the cross and the second half will be completed by the two Jewish witnesses in the 21st Century (Revelation 11:3-4)… Here is where your 1260 days, 42 months and three and a half years comes into play. It’s the length of the Great Tribulation or Time of Jacob’s Troubles.

  • edwitness

    Thanks for the info. I’m glad you see the Messiah as already completing the first half of the 70th week. But, don’t the 2 witnesses get killed part way through the 1260 days? So how do they complete the second half?

  • truth seeker

    edwitness, the last half of the 70th week of Daniel 9:24-27 will probably start in the “midst” of the seven year covenant of Daniel 9:27…It’s at this point (middle of the covenant) when many events will occur. Consider: (1.) Abomination of Desolation (defiling of Jewish Temple) and the start of forty-two months of Great Tribulation (Daniel 9;27). (2.) Jerusalem controlled by the Gentiles (probably AC and False Prophet) for forty-two months (Revelation 11:2), (3.) two Jewish witnesses preaching to the lost sheep of Israel for 1260 days (Revelation 11:3-12). (4.) Messianic Jews being protected by God in the wilderness for 1260 days (Revelation 12:8 and 14(, And (5.) Anti-Christ (first Beast) ruling the world for 42 months (Revelation 13:5)…For your information, the 7 year covenant of Daniel 9:27 may be confirmed after the upcoming War of Psalm 83, which may occur anytime after the 2014-2015 Tetrad…Keep searching.

  • Dear NTEB/Geoffrey:
    Obama belittling Israel and Christians. Who else belittles Christians: check out these links on Youtube:
    Mocking Jesus on Israeli Zionist TV – צליבת ישו – The Crucifixion of Yeshu and Shocking -The Jewish Grudge on Jesus Christ ! and Israeli talk show make fun of Jesus and Mary

    Is this what Israel thinks of Christians? Thanks, Norbert.

  • holy words of scripture to share and edify you with fellow saints in our Wonderful and Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ!

    Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

    Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord [is] my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

    Psalms 109:30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.

    1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

    1 Thessalonians 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

    1 Thessalonians 5:11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
