Israel Urges Jews To Leave France, Suspends "Working Ties" With Countries That Voted For UN Resolution

Tyler Durden's picture

In an unexpected escalation that was not the result of Israel's angry response to Friday's UN vote which passed a resolution condemning the country's settlements on occupied Palestinian territory, and which the US refused to veto, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday called on French Jews to leave their country to protest a Paris-hosted conference planned for next month aimed at restarting Palestine-Israel peace talks, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth has reported.

Avigdor Lieberman

According to Turkey's Anadolu news agency, the Israeli government has repeatedly stated in recent months that it would not participate in the conference, which is scheduled to be held on Jan. 15 with the participation of representatives from 70 countries. Speaking at a meeting of his right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party, Lieberman reportedly said: "Perhaps it's time to tell the Jews of France, ‘This isn't your country, this isn't your land. Leave France and come to Israel’."

"That's the only response to this plot," Lieberman added, in reference to the planned conference.

He also criticized the timing of the event, which will be held shortly before French presidential elections. "With France going to elections soon, this is not the time for a peace summit," the newspaper quoted Lieberman as saying. "It [the planned conference] is a tribunal against the State of Israel." He added: "This summit's entire purpose is to undermine the State of Israel's security and tarnish its good name."

According to the website of the Jewish Agency for Israel (a para-statal organization responsible for Jewish immigration to Israel), an estimated 1.5 million Jews live in Europe, roughly 600,000 of whom reside in France. According to Jewish Agency data, some 8,000 French Jews immigrated to Israel last year. An earlier report issued by the Israeli prime minister’s office found that 6,655 Jews had departed France for Israel in 2014, compared with 3,293 the previous year.

Then, in an expected escalation that was the result of Friday's UN vote, CNN's Jim Sciutto reported that Israel has suspended “working ties” with 12 nations that voted for a United Nations resolution condemning settlements. The suspension of diplomatic ties comes after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s vow last week to exact a “diplomatic and economic price” from the countries on the UN Security Council that passed the resolution, 14-0.

The countries were Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, Ukraine, Angola, Egypt, Uruguay, Spain, Senegal and New Zealand, Malaysia. Israel does not have diplomatic ties with Venezuela or Malaysia, which also voted for the resolution.

Meanwhile, back in the US, Newt Gingrich continued his outspoken ways, and slammed President Obama for not vetoing the resolution, likening the move to a “war” against the key ally in the Middle East. “Why is the Obama team waging war against Israel? Why are they taking steps to isolate and then kill a democracy and an ally?” Gingrich tweeted.

“President-elect Trump must prepare a comprehensive offensive for Jan 29 to undo the damage to Israel the Obama team is inflicting."

“Congress should pass resolutions January 3-4 condemning Obama attacks on Israel and demanding he not participate in French or (U.N. Security Council) attacks,” Gingrich, a key Trump ally, wrote online.

The move was the culmination of years of strained ties between the White House and Israel over the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Trump was fiercely opposed to the resolution and vowed U.S. policy toward Israel will change when he takes office.

Then again, one wonders how much of the drama in the last few days is merely spoon-fed for public consumption: despite the alleged tension between the US and Israel, Obama approved a $38 Billion military aid package to Israel in September, the largest in U.S. history.

The 10-year aid packages underpin Washington’s Congressionally mandated requirement to help maintain Israel’s “qualitative military edge” in the region. According to the MOU, at least $3.8 billion a year in aid, up from $3.1 billion annually under the current pact, would be provided to Israel. Netanyahu had originally sought upwards of $4.5 billion a year. The new package for the first time will incorporate money for Israeli missile defense, which until now has been funded ad hoc by Congress. U.S. lawmakers have in recent years given Israel up to $600 million in annual discretionary funds for this purpose.

In short, ignore the pointed rhetoric and focus on the actions.

Can they leave america too?

Can america and other financiers of the socialist aparthied state of israel stop subsidizing Israel once they are all there?




Squid-puppets a-go-go's picture

all this is one of a series of petty moves from obama to make trump look like the bad guy if he goes back to business as usual. I hope trump doesnt go back to business as usual, but i hope he 'pretends to fix it' and says he cant undo the damage obama wrought

My thoughts, exactly!

When you look at the actions, vs. the words, it is pretty obvious this is the old good cop vs. bad cop tactic, with Israel again playing the role of The Victim.

This is the kind of solid analysis and questioning that is very hard to find written anywhere else but ZeroHedge.

Merry Christmas, Tyler!

God bless you!

In fact, it might be wise for Jews to get out of Europe altogether since they most likely will not fare well when the Caliphate takes control.

The plan is for the Bolsheviks to flood Europe, Canada, US, & Australia with millions of muslim & third world immigrants to destroy their cultures, societies, and nations. Here's a Bolshevik telling you herself

Why are we supposed to care about a country the size of Slovenia with the GDP of Portugal? What makes it so special? Why are we supposed to pay attention to it being offended? Can't we just cordon it off so we can stop talking about it?

Here's a hint for Lieberman, Palestine is not jooish territory either... More than past time for the world call bullshit on the joos and their apartheid state...

Fck the muzzies....

Israel won the land in 1967....the land belongs to whoever holds it....or do you think Mexico can tell California and Arizona  where they can build as well? Read a fking history book, for all of human history that has been the way of the world...

they should give up on the "two state solution"

and evict those who don't wish to be governed by the Israelis...I think we should deport all the muzzies that have brought here, their Sharia beliefs are not compatible with the Constitution

‘This isn't your country, this isn't your land.Leave France and come to Israel.'

Meaning 'We have not stolen their land yet. So come over to IsraHell so we can train you to be terrorists and send you back to take it from them.'

When Israel is destroyed, these same assholes will beg the world "Please take us in, Please take us in." FAT CHANCE!

Cue the Alt Right.

So all you need to do to get rid of the Jews in your country, it is to vote against Israel in a UN resolution?

Fuck, in the good ole days a World War was required.

Dear idiot,

If the land belongs to the holder, then Israel doesn't exist. It was created by UN mandate, and is the only artificial country in human history.

Israel cant hold that land without.our money.

Jews have been in the area of Israel for eons. Islam wasn't dreamed up until centuries after Judaism.

It's more like Muslims stole the entire Middle East from Jews.

If it wasn't for that shithole Israel and joe six pack funding, refugess would be in their mud huts back in their countries.  But, the 'developed' west is hostage to the money presses the zio pigs control.  For now.

Cancel both and call it even.

I will meet you half way on that in how about we let them solve their own problems with the Palestinians and their nice Muslim neighbors.

This is ironic.  Jews are mostly invited to leave a country by the country itself, the most recent high profile example being Germany.  I can't see how anybody could provide the incentive the Germans did, but they stayed anyway.  What are they going to do in Israel?  Be parasites on other parasites?  Obvious posturing.

FreedomGuy's picture

Countries and ethnicities and different sects of the same religion are always in conflict with each other.

I do not see how Jews are parasites at least in the same sense as welfare recipients and illegal immigrants or refugees. They tend to be exceptionally successful. Was Einstein a parasite?

All Jews need to leave America. If they don't it will be hell on earth for them.

The only people who have a claim on being owed something are blacks, which is why Jews use them as tools.

Whites and blacks built this country, we share that history.

The Jew game is to divide those who actually are the founders.


seams that everyone is too afraid to kill them, like waiting for the Jewish Jesus to do it.

" they most likely will not fare well when the Caliphate takes control."

True that, but no one, other than the Islamists, will do well under a Caliphate takeover of any country, including the countries in the Middle East.

The "Jews" Golden Age in Spain was under the Judeo-muslim Moors, while the Christians were being blood taxed and persecuted.

Here's some examples of how well the jews did under the Ottoman Muslims, who were perhaps the worst to Christians of all the Judeo-muslims

BDS !!!

Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions - What is BDS?

"The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement works to end international support for Israel's oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law."

Rothschild's nazi sonderkommando Georgi Shwartz & his AshkeNAZIS like BBNutandyahoo & the moldavian Apigador Lieberman are Pharisees, not semites.

The leader of the "caliphate", al-Baghdadi is an izraeli named Simon Elliot.

And don't call me an 'anti-semite', 'cause these motherfuckers aren't even fuckin' semites; they are Khazars !

Don't believe these pigs.

ZD1's picture

Yeah, poor Muslims. BDS doesn't go far enough.

They deserve extra special privileges. Upholding international law is of the upmost importance and nationalism doesn't matter in this New World Order.

To combat Islamophobia and to compensate for the unfair treatment of Muslims around the world, it is imperative that countries with indigenous Caucasian populations like Sweden fling open their borders to all Muslims, provide them with free housing and food, free medical care, and enough welfare benefits to let them live comfortably with dignity for the rest of their lives.

FreedomGuy's picture

It might be good for the Christians and even Europeans, in general to start leaving Europe. Muslim majorities and Sharia patrols are on the way.

“Why is the Obama team waging war against Israel? Why are they taking steps to isolate and then kill a democracy and an ally?” Gingrich tweeted.

Just when I thought Gingrich was clean, apparently he pledges his allegiance directly to the Devil himself. Selling his soul to Israel must be lucrative.

Only your perception has changed. Gingrich hasn't changed a bit.

greenskeeper carl's picture

Yes, if you thought Gingrich was anything other than an Israel first neocon asshole, you haven't been paying attention.


And was that really a threat? All the jews are going to leave these countries? Who knew it was that easy, holy shit.


And obama isn't abandoning jackshit. At least in this case, I wish he would do what republicans keep accusing him of and abandon israel. 38 billion in military gibmedats (really another form or corporate welfare, since where do you think this money will get spent? Lockheed, boeing, etc) hardly sounds like he is abandoning poor little israel.

Urban Redneck's picture

Tulane needs to revoke Newt's PhD - it is inexcusable for him to conflate the State of Israel with a Democracy.  Israel is an oligarchy run by shifting coalitions of the major and minor zionist political parties.  The people in Israel have no real power (or even land ownership)... they probably couldn't even vote out their war-criminal-in-chief Netanyahu since that would require electing a pro-zionist parliamentary majority that doesn't include Likud.  Bibi mastered the art of divide et impera a long time ago.

Yeah, what the entire world needs is an Islamic theocracy. Not.

DipshitMiddleClassWhiteKid's picture

yep, israelis are victims of zionism as well.

FreedomGuy's picture

You understand that you contradict yourself, right?

Urban Redneck's picture

Sorry I don't see any contradictions.  I do see some points that could be argued on the basis of semantics, but I think the substantive arguments over those points would go way over the head of the average person trolling through any ZH post about about Israel.

Perhaps Freedom is saying that if you scale The Hexagram up to continental size, for example, you get the USA. Hence the "contradiction".
