Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would be absent in the main conference. He said the two had been invited to come to France after the meeting to be briefed about conclusions. Netanyahu has censured the French initiative meant for the resumption of negotiations, saying he would only attend direct talks with Abbas, who has welcomed the general idea of restoring the so-called peace process, although he has, on numerous occasions, accused Israel of deliberately resisting any settlement over the conflict. Abbas is planned to visit the French capital at the end of the week on the sidelines of the conference. He has yet to make clear whether he would meet with French President Francois Hollande. Seventy is the scriptural number of nations. Having 72 nations present underscores the prophecy that ALL nations will come against Israel.
For the purpose to demonstrate France’s solidarity with Israel following terror attack in Jerusalem, Mayor of Paris made a decision to project Israeli flag on city hall in the capital city, Forward reports on Tuesday. False friends of Israel.
5,000 French Jews emigrated to Israel last year I only wish American Jews would take a hint. Did you know that Jeremiah tells the Jews to lead the exodus from Babylon? Jeremiah / Yirmeyahu 50:8 “People of Judah, get out of Babylon quickly!
Leave the land of Babylonia! Be the first to depart! Be like the male goats that lead the herd.
Obama pushes Israel to give up Judean and Samarian communities
Barack Obama warned in an interview broadcast Tuesday that “unfettered support” for Israel’s policies regarding its presence in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem would lead to a “worsening situation” over time between Israel and the Palestinians. The interview with Israeli TV program “Uvda”comes 10 days before Obama, who has been an outspoken critic of Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria, hands power over to President-elect Donald Trump. Trump is expected to pursue a starkly different approach to the issue. “If the notion is that unfettered support for Israel or more specifically support for the Netanyahu government’s policies — no matter what they are, no matter how inimical they may be to the prospects for peace — if that’s what qualifies as a good friend, then I think that we will see a worsening situation over time,” Obama said during the interview, which was filmed in Washington last week. Hint: Obama is underhandedly admitting to not being a friend of Israel by making his decisions appear reasonable and logical. In the world of psychology, men who are misogynists do this to their wives. Misogyny is nothing more than a sociopath’s calm method of oppression.

WARS & RUMORS THEREOF
After nearly six years of uprising, conflict and chaos, the partition of Syria is imminent. President Bashar al-Assad will of course rail against it; his crucial ally Iran will probably resist too, and the marginalised US won’t even acknowledge the prospect. But the lines are nonetheless being drawn.
Fort Carson’s Iron Brigade moves 2,500 tanks, trucks and military vehicles into Europe in the biggest troop transfer since the Cold War
For the 3rd Brigade’s 3,500 troops, the nine-month deployment to Europe has been a year in the making, with months spent training to sharpen their combat skills and just as much time solving the logistical riddle of moving 87 tanks and about 2,500 other military vehicles across continents and an ocean. As part of the Iron Brigade’s push from Fort Carson to bases across NATO’s eastern flank, mechanics are working overtime to keep the many convoys going, a key cog in one of the largest U.S. troop mobilizations in Europe since the end of the Cold War.
For EUCOM and the U.S. Army in Europe, the arrival of the 3rd Brigade is a culminating moment in its two-year effort to rebuild U.S. military power on a continent where it had been in steady decline for the past 25 years. Now, the plan is for the Army to conduct back-to-back rotations of a tank brigade, ensuring a year-round presence of armor to complement two other Army brigades stationed full time in Europe. And dare I mention how the Russians will view this affront?
US & GLOBAL ECONOMY
The stock market has been on quite a roll in recent weeks, but signs of trouble continue to plague the real economy. Earlier this week, I talked about the “retail apocalypse” that is sweeping America. Major retail chains such as Sears and Macy’s are closing stores and laying off workers, but I didn’t think that Wal-Mart would be feeling the pain as well. Unfortunately, that is precisely what is happening. USA Today is reporting that approximately 1,000 jobs will be cut at Wal-Mart’s corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas by the end of this month.
JOHN MCCAIN CREATED SMEAR CAMPAIGN AGAINST TRUMP
Amid Trump-Russia Firestorm, McCain Says He Sent ‘Sensitive Information’ to FBI
The chairman of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee has confirmed that he previously provided to the FBI “sensitive information” believed to be memos detailing unverified Russian efforts to compile compromising information on President-elect Donald Trump. In a statement Wednesday morning, Sen. John McCain said that late last year, he received “sensitive information that has since been made public.” “Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the director of the FBI,” the Arizona Republican said. “That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”
President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday that he has a slate of orders ready to sign in the days after his inauguration, promised to nominate a Supreme Court justice by early February and vowed to make good on his campaign promise to build a wall — not just a fence — on the U.S.-Mexico border. But Mr. Trump’s first press conference in nearly six months was dominated by questions about his approach to Moscow and his vehement denunciations of reports that Russian intelligence has compromising information about the next president. “It’s all fake news. It’s phony stuff. It didn’t happen,” he said, as he blasted news outlets that delved into the allegations, even as they admitted the reports were unsubstantiated.
If the Constitution allowed it, he most certainly would have sought a third term. In a year-end interview with his former aide David Axelrod, the president said he thought he would have beaten Donald Trump. At the top of his Tuesday farewell speech, the audience chanted “Four more years! Four more years!” His response: “I can’t do that”—not eight is enough. Almost an hour later, near the end of his soliloquy, Mr. Obama declared: “I won’t stop. In fact, I will be right there with you, as a citizen, for all my remaining days.”
ISLAM & NEW WORLD ORDER
Canada’s capital is a small sleepy city of less than a million. Its average annual murder rate is only 10. That’s a weekend in Chicago. But last year something strange happened to Ottawa’s murder rate. It shot up to 24 homicides. The last two murders were of Somali Muslim sisters Asma and Nasiba. Their murderer was their brother, Musab A-Noor. Despite the obvious history of Muslim honor killings of women, often carried out by brothers against their sisters, Musab was found “unfit” to stand trial. A director at the Somali Centre for Family Services insisted that Somali settlers in the city need more mental health funding. Something certainly seems to be needed.
On behalf of the U.S. Department of State, Secretary John F. Kerry formally apologized Monday to the American gay and transgender community for decades of open witch-hunting the agency conducted in the mid-20th century.
