President Obama has repeatedly called for Israel to return to the "1967 borders," but that is a falsehood—there are no 1967 borders. What the President's plan would do in reality is return Israel to the 1949 Armistice lines...the borders that Israeli statesman Abba Eban described as "Auschwitz lines." The so-called 1967 borders are simply where the armies halted at the end of the previous attempt by Arabs to commit genocide against Israel.

From 1948 to 1967, Jordan illegally occupied the Holy City of Jerusalem until it was liberated during the Six Day War. The City of David belongs to Israel by every possible right—historic, military, and most importantly—prophetic. Yet now after forty-four years of a united city, President Obama is pushing as hard as he can to once again divide Jerusalem and hand it over to Israel's most bitter enemies.

Many observers have labeled the Obama Administration as the most anti-Israel US government ever, and they are correct. From threatening to withhold vital military and economic aid to condemning the building of homes for Jews in Israel's capital city of Jerusalem, again and again President Obama and his top aides and advisers have stood against Israel and for her enemies. Nowhere is that more clearly seen than in these final days leading up to the UN vote on Palestinian statehood.
