Shalom I wish to advise that I am from New Zealand, a Country that co sponsored the disasteroous Resolution 2334 at the United Nations Security Council and this has not gone down well with a large number of our population. On behalf of our Country I wish to ask for your forgiveness. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and that All scripture is inspired by God and that is the basis for the following

The logic for Resolution 2334 to the UNSC is totally flawed and based on untruths that have been promoted over a number years

We must first ask ourselves 'Whose land is it/'?. Well scripture is clear. In Lev 25 v 23 the land in question belongs to God, and given to Abraham thru to Isaac and to Jacob ( latterly renamed Israel). The boundaries of the land have already been established by God Himself as being from the River Nile to that of the Euphrates. Because boundaries of a land have been defined, the word State as determining Israels status should not apply. It is a Nation

Every one appears to be calling for a two 'state' solution great, but not in the Nation of Israel, maybe the 'Palestinians in southern Syria where the “Palestinians” originated

What is Palestine? Two main theories upheld by these people,are, a) Canaanite descendants b) Philistine descendants, which if either theory had any validity, would automatically discount any rights to the Land (aside by the Creator of the Universes stated ownership) a,s a) Canaanite totally wiped out except for a few who were assimilated into the surrounding populace and subsequently lost their identity b) Philistine. Until taken over by Assyrians in 7th century BC never inhabited further inland as traditionally they were sea fearing people from Crete and remained near coastal areas. There is no evidence at all they resided in Jerusalem..The Philistines themselves lost their independence to Tiglath-Pileser III of Assyria by 732 BC, and in revolts in following years were all but crushed. . All traces of the Philistines as a people or ethnic group disappeared. Common viewpoint suggests that the people who now call themselves Palestinian are Arabs from southern Syria

There are some very valid statements from exceptional people in their field both Arab and Jew who have denied there having ever existed a Palestinian peoples.

In 1969 your Nations then Prime Minister Golda Meir made the following statement “There is no such thing as a Palestinian people Its not as if we came and threw them out and took their country. They didn't exist. In 1937 Awni Abdul-Hadi a political figure who co founded al fatat at the Peel Commission stated. “ There is no such country as Palestine. 'Palestine' is a term the Zionists invented. There is no Palestine in the Bible.. Palestine is alien to us.... our country was for centuries part of Syria, and addressing the United Nations SC in 1956 in his capacity as the Arab Leagues ambassador to the UN Amhad Shukein the first chairman of the PLO declared ' such a creature as Palestine does not exist at all. This land is nothing but the southern portion of Syria. It is common knowledge that Palestine is nothing but southern Syria

The name Palestine was first used when the Roman Emporer Hadrian conquored Jerusalem in AD135 in his endeavour to eradicate the memory of the Jews and their connection to the land of Israel he renamed Israel after the name of their historical enemy calling it Syria Palaestina the latin name for Philistine.

There are a lot of myths and lies that have developed over the years that have tarnished the validity of both Jew and Arab like the myth that Mohammed flew on his horse from the dome on the rock to wherever. The Mosque was built 690 AD yet the 'prophet' died in 632AD Interesting that he died almost 60 years before the mosque built yet he was supposed to have been taken up from that same mosque on a winged horse. Great imagination especially as he was already dead .Interesting when being guided around Israel last year by an Arab Israeli, the group was told the mountain site where Abraham was going to sacrifice Ishmael. When challenged that it was Isaac he told me in private that tha'ts what muslim believe and are taught Sorry big Lie. No wonder that when these myths and lies are taught throughout the muslim world there will forever be conflict
