"Leaders tell UN of Bible's authority : Israel belongs to the Jews"
This is an historic first ... drafting the Obvious. One wonders
how this will impact future decisions at the UN.
"Citing the Bible as “recording for all time the awarding
of the Land of Israel to the forefathers of the Jewish People by the Creator of
the world,” the letter tell Ban it gives him the “opportunity to correct the
deviation of the nations from international law in accordance with the
responsibilities of your position and thus obviate the measures undoubtedly to
be inflicted on those who act contrary to the Covenant of the Almighty with
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”
They also wrote Ban, “The entire Land of
Israel was promised and granted to the Jewish People…as recorded time and again
in the opening Five Books of the Hebrew Bible (e.g., Genesis 15:21; Deuteronomy
1:8 et al.), accepted by the adherents of the Christian faith whose Bible
encompasses the aforementioned Books, and confirmed in various places in the
holy book of Islam, the Quran (e.g., Sura 2 et al.).”
added, “The very opposite is what is required of the U.N. at this time: to
recognize the continuity of Jewish legal rights to the entire Land of Israel
under Article 80 of the UN Charter.
