  • JAY SEKULOW: THIS WAS BIG NEWS LAST WEEK AND THAT
  • 00:00:33.260 --> 00:00:35.030
  • IS THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WILL
  • 00:00:35.040 --> 00:00:37.180
  • STOP CLASSIFYING ISRAELI WEST BANK SETTLEMENTS AS A VIOLATION
  • 00:00:37.190 --> 00:00:41.100
  • OF INTERNATIONAL LAW; A STEP THAT SOME ARE RAISING CONCERNS
  • 00:00:41.110 --> 00:00:45.170
  • WITH. WHO ARE THOSE SOME? ILHAN OMAR SAYING ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS
  • 00:00:45.180 --> 00:00:48.250
  • VIOLATE INTERNATIONAL LAW, DECADES OF U.S. FOREIGN POLICY
  • 00:00:48.260 --> 00:00:51.190
  • AND THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF PALESTINIANS. ALL WHO BELIEVE IN
  • 00:00:51.200 --> 00:00:54.100
  • THE POSSIBILITY OF PEACE MUST SPEAK UP. SHE'S NOT HAPPY ABOUT
  • 00:00:54.110 --> 00:00:57.010
  • THIS. IN THE END WE WILL NOT REMEMBER THE WORDS OF OUR
  • 00:00:57.020 --> 00:00:59.090
  • ENEMIES BUT THE SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. RASHIDA TLAIB. THESE
  • 00:00:59.100 --> 00:01:02.190
  • ARE SHOCKING, BY THE WAY. ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS IN THE WEST
  • 00:01:02.200 --> 00:01:05.000
  • BANK VIOLATE INTERNATIONAL LAW NO MATTER WHAT THIS CORRUPTED,
  • 00:01:05.010 --> 00:01:07.230
  • IMMORAL TRUMP REGIME SAYS. YEAH, IT'S A LAWLESS, KING LIKE
  • 00:01:07.240 --> 00:01:11.090
  • DICTATOR. IT DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACTS. SO, THAT'S ILHAN OMAR. NO
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:16.080
  • GREAT SHOCK THERE. BERNIE SANDERS. ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS IN
  • 00:01:16.090 --> 00:01:19.170
  • OCCUPIED TERRITORY ARE ILLEGAL. THIS IS CLEAR FROM INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:01:19.180 --> 00:01:22.050
  • LAW AND MULTIPLE U.N. RESOLUTIONS. ONCE AGAIN MR.
  • 00:01:22.060 --> 00:01:25.000
  • TRUMP IS ISOLATING THE UNITED STATES AND UNDERMINING DIPLOMACY
  • 00:01:25.010 --> 00:01:27.080
  • BY PANDERING TO HIS EXTREMIST BASE. LET ME FIRST GO TO SKIP
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:30.060
  • ASH. DEFINE WHAT THESE SETTLEMENTS ARE AND WHERE
  • 00:01:30.070 --> 00:01:33.090
  • THEY'RE LOCATED. SKIP ASH: THE SETTLEMENTS ARE WITHIN WHAT'S
  • 00:01:33.100 --> 00:01:36.290
  • THE TERRITORY WE KNOW AS THE WEST BANK, WHICH WAS THE
  • 00:01:37.000 --> 00:01:39.280
  • TERRITORY THAT THE ISRAELIS DID NOT CONQUER DURING THE 1948-49
  • 00:01:39.290 --> 00:01:45.250
  • WAR. IT WAS OCCUPIED BY THE JORDANIANS. THERE ARE
  • 00:01:45.260 --> 00:01:49.210
  • SETTLEMENTS THERE THAT ARE JEWISH SETTLEMENTS. THEY'RE
  • 00:01:49.220 --> 00:01:53.040
  • THERE ON KEY PIECES OF TERRAIN AND THEY'RE THERE FOR THE
  • 00:01:53.050 --> 00:01:55.280
  • SECURITY OF ISRAEL. AND THEY'RE BECOMING QUITE EXTENSIVE. BUT
  • 00:01:55.290 --> 00:02:00.240
  • THEY'RE ALSO LAWFUL. I WANT TO ENCOURAGE THAT. WHEN WE GET INTO
  • 00:02:00.250 --> 00:02:03.200
  • THE LAWFULNESS, I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT
  • 00:02:03.210 --> 00:02:06.100
  • THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY LAWFUL. THEY HAVE BEEN ENCOURAGED SINCE THE
  • 00:02:06.110 --> 00:02:10.000
  • MANDATE FOR PALESTINE IN THE EARLY 1920S, AND THEY ARE
  • 00:02:10.010 --> 00:02:13.280
  • DEFINITELY LAWFUL, IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT SOME OF OUR POLITICIANS
  • 00:02:13.290 --> 00:02:17.110
  • ARE SAYING, AND IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT THE INTERNATIONAL BODIES
  • 00:02:17.120 --> 00:02:22.080
  • LIKE THE UNITED NATION'S GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS SAYING. HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:02:22.090 --> 00:02:24.140
  • SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO SAID ABOUT THIS VERY ISSUE.
  • 00:02:24.150 --> 00:02:27.190
  • -THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS REVERSING THE OBAMA
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:29.230
  • ADMINISTRATION'S APPROACH TOWARDS ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS. THE
  • 00:02:29.240 --> 00:02:32.200
  • U.S. PUBLIC STATEMENTS ON SETTLEMENT ACTIVITIES IN THE
  • 00:02:32.210 --> 00:02:35.180
  • WEST BANK HAVE BEEN INCONSISTENT OVER DECADES. -AND THAT IS
  • 00:02:35.190 --> 00:02:39.010
  • BECAUSE THEY WERE CLASSIFIED AS ILLEGAL UNDER THE OBAMA
  • 00:02:39.020 --> 00:02:40.280
  • ADMINISTRATION. THIS IS A HUGE DEVELOPMENT. BY THE WAY, WHEN
  • 00:02:40.290 --> 00:02:43.230
  • YOU'RE THINKING SETTLEMENTS, LET ME TELL YOU WHAT THIS ISN'T.
  • 00:02:43.240 --> 00:02:45.220
  • THIS ISN'T LIKE SMALL LITTLE AREAS. SOME OF THESE ARE HIGHLY
  • 00:02:45.230 --> 00:02:48.070
  • DEVELOPED TOWNS THAT HAVE UNIVERSITIES IN THEM. I MEAN,
  • 00:02:48.080 --> 00:02:50.220
  • THESE ARE BIG AREAS OF THE COUNTRY. I MEAN, ISRAEL IS A
  • 00:02:50.230 --> 00:02:55.000
  • SMALL COUNTRY, BUT IT'S BIG AREAS, IT'S A BIG ZONE. AND THIS
  • 00:02:55.010 --> 00:02:57.240
  • IS A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, JORDAN. JORDAN SEKULOW: IT IS. YEAH,
  • 00:02:57.250 --> 00:03:01.140
  • IT'S FORMAL CONSTRUCTION. IT'S NOT IN THE SENSE OF, OH, I PUT
  • 00:03:01.150 --> 00:03:07.040
  • MY, MY -STAKE IN THE GROUND. -MY FLAG DOWN AND, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:10.000
  • I'VE GOT A TENT HERE. THAT MAY HAVE BEEN HOW THEY STARTED IN
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:12.240
  • THE 1940'S BUT THEY HAVE DEVELOPED INTO FULLY FUNCTIONING
  • 00:03:12.250 --> 00:03:16.150
  • TOWNS, ALMOST TO THE POINT OF WHERE YOU WOULD SAY SOME ARE
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:19.150
  • LIKE CITIES. -YES. -IF YOU WERE LOOKING BACK AND THEN IN A
  • 00:03:19.160 --> 00:03:22.110
  • DISTANCE YOU SEE WHAT HAS BEEN CREATED THERE. AND, AS SKIP
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:27.010
  • SAID, THAT'S BECAUSE THIS AREA, THIS HAS BEEN SOMETHING
  • 00:03:27.020 --> 00:03:29.270
  • ENCOURAGED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF ISRAEL. AND SO, FOR THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:03:29.280 --> 00:03:32.250
  • THEY'VE BEEN ENCOURAGED TO GO THERE AND ENCOURAGED TO DO THIS
  • 00:03:32.260 --> 00:03:36.050
  • AND TO MAKE THIS THEIR HOME. BECAUSE EVERYONE KNEW THAT AT
  • 00:03:36.060 --> 00:03:41.150
  • SOME POINT, IF THERE WERE ANY KIND OF PEACE TALKS, THEY'LL
  • 00:03:41.160 --> 00:03:45.000
  • HAVE TO NEGOTIATE THIS LAND. AND SOME OF THIS LAND, ISRAEL
  • 00:03:45.010 --> 00:03:49.190
  • BELIEVES, IS ISRAEL'S EVEN THOUGH THE MANDATES OF THE U.N.
  • 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:53.080
  • AND THIS. SO, I THINK FROM THE U.S. TAKING A STEP, SAYING,
  • 00:03:53.090 --> 00:03:55.160
  • WE'RE NOT GONNA SAY THIS IS ILLEGAL, HAVE A NEGOTIATION OVER
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:58.120
  • IT. -THIS IS A BIG DEVELOPMENT. THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF LITIGATION
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:04:02.170
  • ON THIS ISSUE. THERE'S BEEN U.N. RESOLUTIONS ON THIS ISSUE.
  • 00:04:02.180 --> 00:04:05.230
  • THANN, VERY QUICKLY, WERE YOU SURPRISED THAT THIS MOVE IS
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:07.210
  • HAPPENING NOW? I MEAN, IT'S BEEN VERY CONSISTENT WHEN YOU LOOK AT
  • 00:04:07.220 --> 00:04:10.210
  • THE GOLAN HEIGHTS DECLARATION. THANN BENNETT: YEAH, NOT
  • 00:04:10.220 --> 00:04:13.070
  • SURPRISED, JAY, JUST BECAUSE OF THE LONG TRACK RECORD THAT THIS
  • 00:04:13.080 --> 00:04:15.120
  • ADMINISTRATION ALREADY HAS ON THESE ISSUES. LOOK, IT FOLLOWS
  • 00:04:15.130 --> 00:04:18.070
  • ON THE HEELS OF MOVING THE EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM,
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:20.210
  • RECOGNIZING GOLAN HEIGHTS, AND THEN A WHOLE SLEW OF ACTIONS AT
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:24.070
  • THE UNITED NATIONS, JAY, WHICH WE CAN GET INTO. IT'S PRETTY
  • 00:04:24.080 --> 00:04:27.040
  • CLEAR TO ME THAT THOSE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS THAT YOU REFERENCED,
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:29.290
  • THOUGH, JAY, THEY HAVEN'T ACTUALLY READ WHAT THE
  • 00:04:30.000 --> 00:04:32.100
  • ADMINISTRATION DID. BECAUSE LIKE JORDAN SAID, THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:04:32.110 --> 00:04:35.020
  • CONCLUDE THE LEGALITY. THEY SPECIFICALLY SAID THEY WERE
  • 00:04:35.030 --> 00:04:38.230
  • GONNA LEAVE THAT TO THE PARTIES INVOLVED. SO, THOSE MEMBERS OF
  • 00:04:38.240 --> 00:04:40.220
  • CONGRESS, JAY, THEY'RE JUST REACTING. -THAT'S A 100 PERCENT
  • 00:04:40.230 --> 00:04:43.220
  • CORRECT. SO, AGAIN, LET ME JUST TELL YOU THIS IS A BIG, BIG
  • 00:04:43.230 --> 00:04:46.270
  • DEVELOPMENT. WE'RE GONNA GET A LOT MORE ON THIS. A LOT GOING
  • 00:04:46.280 --> 00:04:49.000
  • ON!
  • 00:04:49.010 --> 00:04:51.130
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:51.140 --> 00:04:54.050
  • [MUSC]
  • 00:04:54.050 --> 00:04:55.280
  • JAY SEKULOW: HEY, WELCOME BACK. SO,
  • 00:04:55.290 --> 00:04:57.060
  • THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WILL NOW RECOGNIZE ISRAEL'S WEST BANK
  • 00:04:57.070 --> 00:05:00.240
  • SETTLEMENTS AS NOT VIOLATIONS OF INTERNATIONAL LAW, NOT OCCUPIED
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:03.070
  • TERRITORY. AGAIN, SKIP, I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO REITERATE, AND
  • 00:05:03.080 --> 00:05:08.120
  • I'VE GOT A QUESTION FOR HARRY AND WES HERE, IMPORTANT TO
  • 00:05:08.130 --> 00:05:11.160
  • REITERATE WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF THE
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:14.160
  • HISTORY OF THESE AREAS. SKIP ASH: WELL, IF WE BEGIN PROPERLY
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:17.010
  • WE'LL BEGIN BACK AFTER WORLD WAR I IN THE TIME AND THE MANDATE
  • 00:05:17.020 --> 00:05:20.000
  • FOR PALESTINE. THE MANDATE FOR PALESTINE WAS CREATED FOR THE
  • 00:05:20.010 --> 00:05:23.190
  • VERY PURPOSE OF CREATING A HOMELAND FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:23.200 --> 00:05:26.250
  • AND THE BRITISH WERE THE MANDATORY. THEY WERE THE POWER
  • 00:05:26.260 --> 00:05:29.290
  • IN CHARGE, AND BY THEMSELVES THEY DIVIDED THE MANDATE INTO
  • 00:05:30.000 --> 00:05:34.240
  • TWO PARTS: THE ONE WE CALL PALESTINE AND THE ONE THAT
  • 00:05:34.250 --> 00:05:39.020
  • BECAME JORDAN. SO, RIGHT OFF THE BAT, THE BRITISH TOOK 78 PERCENT
  • 00:05:39.030 --> 00:05:43.040
  • OF IT AND GAVE IT TO THE ARABS. SO, RIGHT OFF THE BAT, WE NEED
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:45.240
  • TO RECOGNIZE THAT THE ARABS HAVE A STATE ALREADY OUT OF PALESTINE
  • 00:05:45.250 --> 00:05:49.180
  • AND IT'S CALLED JORDAN. THEN IN 1948 THE BRITISH WITHDREW AND
  • 00:05:49.190 --> 00:05:55.290
  • THAT TERRITORY THAT WAS LEFT BETWEEN THE JORDAN RIVER AND THE
  • 00:05:56.000 --> 00:05:59.040
  • MEDITERRANEAN BECAME THE STATE OF ISRAEL. THERE WAS A CIVIL WAR
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:02.260
  • THAT WENT ON BETWEEN THE ARABS AND THE ISRAELIS, AND THE
  • 00:06:02.270 --> 00:06:06.160
  • ISRAELIS WON. BUT THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO OCCUPY EVERY BIT. THERE
  • 00:06:06.170 --> 00:06:11.070
  • WAS A PART ACCUPIED BY THE JORDANIAN ARMY, WHICH WAS CALLED
  • 00:06:11.080 --> 00:06:14.120
  • THE WEST BANK. AND THERE WAS A PART ACCUPIED BY THE EGYPTIAN
  • 00:06:14.130 --> 00:06:17.040
  • ARMY, WHICH WAS CALLED THE GAZA STRIP. IN 1967 THERE WAS A WAR
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:22.140
  • BETWEEN THE ARABS AND THE ISRAELIS, AND THE ISRAELIS WON
  • 00:06:22.150 --> 00:06:25.090
  • THOSE TWO PARTS BACK, PLUS THE GOLAN HEIGHTS AND THE SINAI
  • 00:06:25.100 --> 00:06:28.200
  • DESERT. AND IT'S AT THAT POINT IN TIME THAT THE ISRAELIS REALLY
  • 00:06:28.210 --> 00:06:32.170
  • CLAIMED THE CUSTOMARY INTERNATIONAL LAW PRIVILEGE OF
  • 00:06:32.180 --> 00:06:38.020
  • UTI POSSIDET JURIS, WHICH SAYS THE STATE THAT EMERGES WHEN A
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:42.250
  • COLONY OR MANDATE CEASES TO EXIST, GETS ALL THE TERRITORY OF
  • 00:06:42.260 --> 00:06:49.090
  • THAT COLONY OR MANDATE AT THE TIME. AND ISRAEL WAS THE ONLY
  • 00:06:49.100 --> 00:06:54.090
  • NATION TO EMERGE IN 1948. SO, EVERY BIT OF LAND IN THE
  • 00:06:54.100 --> 00:06:58.230
  • TERRITORY BETWEEN THE JORDAN RIVER AND THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:07:02.210
  • BECAME ISRAEL. SO, THEY ARE NOW SETTLING IN TERRITORY OVER WHICH
  • 00:07:02.220 --> 00:07:08.130
  • THEY HAVE SOVEREIGN RIGHTS. AND EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE RECOGNIZED
  • 00:07:08.140 --> 00:07:12.170
  • PALESTINIAN CLAIMS, AND ARE WILLING TO GIVE UP SOME OF THAT
  • 00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:16.030
  • FOR A PALESTINIAN STATE, THEY, ACTUALLY, OWN EVERY BIT OF IT
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:20.000
  • RIGHT NOW. AND NO INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION, LIKE THE U.N.
  • 00:07:20.010 --> 00:07:23.040
  • GENERAL ASSEMBLY, OR ANYTHING ELSE, CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM
  • 00:07:23.050 --> 00:07:26.080
  • THEM. THEY HAVE THE SOVEREIGN RIGHT OVER THAT LAND. -WE HAVE
  • 00:07:26.090 --> 00:07:28.260
  • THE PICTURE, A MAP, UP RIGHT NOW THAT YOU COULD SEE EXACTLY THE
  • 00:07:28.270 --> 00:07:32.240
  • AREA THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE AND WHAT IT INVOLVED. SO,
  • 00:07:32.250 --> 00:07:36.130
  • THIS IS VERY, VERY GOOD. WE ALSO HAVE A CALL COMING IN,
  • 00:07:36.140 --> 00:07:39.050
  • APPARENTLY, FROM ISRAEL. WE'RE TAKING YOUR CALLS AT
  • 00:07:39.060 --> 00:07:41.040
  • 800-684-3110. JORDAN SEKULOW: YEAH, LOU IS CALLING FROM ISRAEL
  • 00:07:41.050 --> 00:07:44.230
  • ON LINE ONE. LOU, WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE. YOU'RE ON THE AIR.
  • 00:07:44.240 --> 00:07:47.050
  • -HI, LOU. -HI, HOW ARE YOU? -GOOD. -SO, ACTUALLY, YOUR
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:52.140
  • PREVIOUS COMMENTATOR, AND I CAME INTO THE MIDDLE OF THAT
  • 00:07:52.150 --> 00:07:55.240
  • CONVERSATION SAID EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY ABOUT THE
  • 00:07:55.250 --> 00:07:59.230
  • SO-CALLED WEST BANK, WHICH WE CALL JUDEA AND SAMARIA, OR
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:03.180
  • YEHUDA AND SHOMRON. AND THAT IS, IF YOU LOOK AT A MAP FROM THE
  • 00:08:03.190 --> 00:08:09.260
  • 20S, 30S, 40S, THAT'S WHAT IT'S CALLED IS JUDEA AND SAMARIA. AND
  • 00:08:09.270 --> 00:08:16.160
  • SO THAT'S THE REAL, REAL NAME. AND SO, IN OTHER WORDS, THEY
  • 00:08:16.170 --> 00:08:22.200
  • HAVE NO, JORDAN WAS THE ONE THAT ILLEGALLY OCCUPIED FOR 19 YEARS,
  • 00:08:22.210 --> 00:08:29.160
  • WHICH WAS 1948 AND 1967. THEY ARE THE ONES. AND, BY THE WAY, I
  • 00:08:29.170 --> 00:08:34.290
  • BELIEVE, I MEAN, JAY, CORRECT ME I'M WRONG OR RIGHT ON THIS, I
  • 00:08:35.000 --> 00:08:40.060
  • THINK PAKISTAN I THINK WAS THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT RECOGNIZED
  • 00:08:40.070 --> 00:08:43.250
  • THEIR SO-CALLED SOVEREIGNTY OVER THE WEST BANK, WHAT THEY CALLED
  • 00:08:43.260 --> 00:08:48.150
  • THE WEST BANK. -YEAH, SO, I MEAN, THE INTERESTING ASPECT OF
  • 00:08:48.160 --> 00:08:50.290
  • THIS IS, AND IF YOU LOOK AT IT HISTORICALLY, YOU'RE RIGHT, THIS
  • 00:08:51.000 --> 00:08:54.240
  • AREA, BUT THIS IS, I WANT TO PUT THAT MAP UP. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:08:54.250 --> 00:08:59.010
  • A BIG SWATH OF LAND. AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT, WHEN WE CALL
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:02.140
  • THESE SETTLEMENTS, IT'S A LOT MORE THAN A SETTLEMENT. OKAY?
  • 00:09:02.150 --> 00:09:05.260
  • THESE ARE FUNCTIONING CITIES. BUT I THINK, HARRY, IF YOU LOOK
  • 00:09:05.270 --> 00:09:10.100
  • AT IT FROM A POLICY PERSPECTIVE, IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE IN LIGHT
  • 00:09:10.110 --> 00:09:12.080
  • OF THE GOLAN DECLARATION THAT CAME BACK IN APRIL OR MAY OF
  • 00:09:12.090 --> 00:09:15.230
  • LAST YEAR, WHERE THE PRESIDENT, WITH BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, MET AND
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:19.220
  • THE UNITED STATES ISSUED THE DECLARATION SAYING THE GOLAN
  • 00:09:19.230 --> 00:09:22.210
  • HEIGHTS, WHICH, AGAIN, AT ONE TIME WAS CONTROLLED BY SYRIA
  • 00:09:22.220 --> 00:09:25.030
  • WAS, IN FACT, ISRAEL'S SOVEREIGN LAND, WHICH IS UNBELIEVABLY
  • 00:09:25.040 --> 00:09:29.000
  • IMPORTANT FOR NATIONAL SECURITY, IT MAKES SENSE FROM A POLICY
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:31.220
  • STANDPOINT THAT THIS NOW WOULD BE THIS A NEW APPROACHMENT AS IT
  • 00:09:31.230 --> 00:09:37.090
  • RELATES TO ISRAELIS, WHAT'S CALLED SETTLEMENTS. HARRY
  • 00:09:37.100 --> 00:09:40.010
  • HUTCHISON: YOU'RE PRECISELY CORRECT. AND SO, I THINK, IF YOU
  • 00:09:40.020 --> 00:09:42.070
  • LOOK AT THIS FROM A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE, JUDEA AND SAMARIA
  • 00:09:42.080 --> 00:09:46.010
  • HAVE BEEN LINKED TO JEWISH HISTORY FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
  • 00:09:46.020 --> 00:09:50.080
  • THAT'S NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, IF YOU LOOK AT THE MANDATE
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:55.040
  • CREATING THE MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL, JUDEA AND SAMARIA HAVE
  • 00:09:55.050 --> 00:09:59.130
  • BEEN LINKED TO THE STATE OF ISRAEL. AND SO, U.S. POLICY, THE
  • 00:09:59.140 --> 00:10:06.010
  • U.S. POLICY CHANGE ANNOUNCED BY SECRETARY POMPEO IS CONSISTENT
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:10.120
  • WITH U.S. OPPOSITION TO BDS AND U.S. CONTINUAL STRONG SUPPORT
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:16.200
  • FOR ISRAEL, AS THANN CORRECTLY POINTS OUT, MOVING THE U.S.
  • 00:10:16.210 --> 00:10:20.160
  • EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM, RECOGNISING ISRAEL'S CONTROL OF
  • 00:10:20.170 --> 00:10:24.270
  • THE GOLAN HEIGHTS. AND IT'S VERY, VERY IMPORTANT WITH
  • 00:10:24.280 --> 00:10:28.120
  • RESPECT TO THE TIMING OF POMPEO'S DECLARATION BECAUSE IT
  • 00:10:28.130 --> 00:10:32.170
  • TAKES PLACE SHORTLY AFTER THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY DECIDED TO
  • 00:10:32.180 --> 00:10:37.100
  • MIS-LABEL ISRAELI GOODS FROM THE SETTLEMENT, GROUNDED IN THE
  • 00:10:37.110 --> 00:10:41.220
  • MISTAKEN NOTION THAT GOODS PRODUCED IN THE SO-CALLED
  • 00:10:41.230 --> 00:10:46.210
  • SETTLEMENT AREAS ARE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES. THIS IS PURE
  • 00:10:46.220 --> 00:10:51.090
  • POLITICAL THEATER ON THE PART OF THE EUROPEANS. AND THE U.S.
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:56.150
  • POLICY ANNOUNCEMENT BY SECRETARY POMPEO, BASICALLY, IS A POINTED
  • 00:10:56.160 --> 00:11:02.010
  • RESPONSE, IN MY OPINION, TO THAT MISTAKEN NOTION BY THE
  • 00:11:02.020 --> 00:11:05.170
  • EUROPEANS. -YEAH, AND WES, IT'S NO SHOCK THAT ILHAN OMAR MADE
  • 00:11:05.180 --> 00:11:08.060
  • HER STATEMENT, ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS VIOLATE THE
  • 00:11:08.070 --> 00:11:10.060
  • INTERNATIONAL LAW DECADES OF U.S. FOREIGN POLICY AND HUMAN
  • 00:11:10.070 --> 00:11:12.080
  • RIGHTS OF PALESTINIANS. WESLEY SMITH: OH, YEAH. WHAT THIS OLD
  • 00:11:12.090 --> 00:11:15.000
  • POLICY, WHICH THANKFULLY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS
  • 00:11:15.010 --> 00:11:17.050
  • REVERSING, WHAT IT DOES IS IT PENALIZES ISRAEL ON AN ISSUE
  • 00:11:17.060 --> 00:11:21.170
  • THAT DOES NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE HISTORY OF THE REGION, THE
  • 00:11:21.180 --> 00:11:24.170
  • GEOGRAPHICAL REALITIES OF THE REGION, AND THE MULTIPLE ISSUES
  • 00:11:24.180 --> 00:11:29.000
  • THAT THE PALESTINIANS CONSISTENTLY REFUSED TO ADDRESS.
  • 00:11:29.010 --> 00:11:32.220
  • YOU KNOW? THIS IS SIMPLY A GOOD THING THAT HAS HAPPENED. THE
  • 00:11:32.230 --> 00:11:36.000
  • PALESTINIANS HAVE A HISTORY, IN ALL OF MY LIFETIME THAT I CAN
  • 00:11:36.010 --> 00:11:40.020
  • REMEMBER, OF REFUSING TO TAKE YES FOR AN ANSWER. EVERY TIME
  • 00:11:40.030 --> 00:11:44.010
  • ISRAEL NEGOTIATES IN GOOD FAITH, THE PALESTINIANS RESPOND WITH
  • 00:11:44.020 --> 00:11:48.020
  • UNFAITH AND VIOLENCE. BUT THIS LAND, HISTORICALLY, BELONGS TO
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:51.270
  • ISRAEL. -NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT. WHAT'S YOUR SENSE? -IT'S
  • 00:11:51.280 --> 00:11:54.040
  • A BIG STATEMENT COMING FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT. IT'S BEEN A
  • 00:11:54.050 --> 00:11:58.030
  • LITTLE BIT OVERSHADOWED IN THE WEEK THAT IT CAME OUT BECAUSE OF
  • 00:11:58.040 --> 00:12:00.290
  • THESE, THAT WAS DURING THE SECOND WEEK OF THE IMPEACHMENT
  • 00:12:01.000 --> 00:12:03.200
  • HEARINGS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I THINK LONG TERM THESE ARE THE
  • 00:12:03.210 --> 00:12:07.040
  • BIG ISSUE MOMENTS. -BIG POLICY MOMENTS. -YEAH, THAT THE
  • 00:12:07.050 --> 00:12:11.090
  • PRESIDENT IS GOING TO SPEAK TO ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL ABOUT
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:16.020
  • DECISIONS HE'S MADE, THE STATE DEPARTMENT HAS MADE. BIG SHIFTS.
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:19.190
  • I GUARANTEE YOU, BY THE WAY, THIS ONE, INSIDE THE STATE
  • 00:12:19.200 --> 00:12:22.230
  • DEPARTMENT, I BET A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE WISH THEY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:12:22.240 --> 00:12:25.100
  • WAITED TO TRY AND DO THEIR IMPEACHMENT BECAUSE I BET THESE
  • 00:12:25.110 --> 00:12:27.190
  • STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS ARE GOING NUTS OVER THIS. -OH,
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:30.060
  • YEAH. I'M SURE THEY ARE. I WAS GOING TO ASK THAT TO THANN. SO,
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:31.270
  • THANN, REACTION IN WASHINGTON. WE SAW BERNIE SANDERS, LET ME
  • 00:12:31.280 --> 00:12:35.030
  • READ THAT AGAIN, NO GREAT SHOCK ON THAT ONE, ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS
  • 00:12:35.040 --> 00:12:38.140
  • IN OCCUPIED TERRITORY ARE ILLEGAL. THIS IS CLEAR FROM
  • 00:12:38.150 --> 00:12:40.190
  • INTERNATIONAL LAW AND MULTIPLE U.N. RESOLUTIONS. ONCE AGAIN MR.
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:43.090
  • TRUMP IS ISOLATING THE U.S. AND UNDERMINING DIPLOMACY BY
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:45.290
  • PANDERING TO HIS EXTREMIST BASE. BY THE WAY, EXTREMIST BASE, IT'S
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:49.080
  • LIKE MOST PEOPLE THAT SUPPORT ISRAEL SUPPORT THIS. THANN
  • 00:12:49.090 --> 00:12:53.290
  • BENNETT: YEAH, I MEAN, THE FIRST THING I WOULD SAY, JAY, IS THOSE
  • 00:12:54.000 --> 00:12:55.240
  • VOICES ARE NOT FRIENDS OF ISRAEL. SO, THEY MIGHT BE
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:12:57.190
  • EMANATING OUT OF WASHINGTON D.C. BUT THEY'RE NOT VOICES WE SHOULD
  • 00:12:57.200 --> 00:13:00.040
  • PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO ON THESE MATTERS OF POLICY. LOOK,
  • 00:13:00.050 --> 00:13:03.110
  • BUT I WOULD JUST UNDERSCORE SOMETHING THAT HARRY TALKED
  • 00:13:03.120 --> 00:13:06.220
  • ABOUT. THE VOICE OF THE UNITED STATES IN THESE ISSUES IN THE
  • 00:13:06.230 --> 00:13:10.070
  • INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY IS SO SIGNIFICANT, JAY, AND IT
  • 00:13:10.080 --> 00:13:12.150
  • SHOULDN'T BE LOST ON PEOPLE THE TIMING OF THE OBAMA
  • 00:13:12.160 --> 00:13:15.150
  • ADMINISTRATION'S REVERSAL ON THIS. IT WAS IN DECEMBER OF 2016
  • 00:13:15.160 --> 00:13:18.120
  • RIGHT AS THEY WERE LEAVING. THAT SEEMS TO BE A HABIT IN THIS
  • 00:13:18.130 --> 00:13:21.200
  • AREA. JAY, THEY DID THE SAME THING AT THE UNITED NATIONS
  • 00:13:21.210 --> 00:13:24.090
  • SECURITY COUNCIL. BASICALLY, WHAT IT LEFT WAS IT LEFT THE
  • 00:13:24.100 --> 00:13:28.000
  • TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WITH A LAUNDRY LIST OF ISSUES IN THE
  • 00:13:28.010 --> 00:13:30.250
  • MIDDLE EAST THAT THEN HAD TO BE ROLLED BACK. SO, HERE WE ARE
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:33.270
  • THREE YEARS INTO THE ADMINISTRATION AND YOU CAN GO
  • 00:13:33.280 --> 00:13:36.170
  • DOWN THE LIST OF SIX OR EIGHT MAJOR POLICY ITEMS THAT HAVE HAD
  • 00:13:36.180 --> 00:13:40.080
  • TO BE ROLLED BACK. I THINK JORDAN'S CORRECT, THAT IT MIGHT
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:42.200
  • BE LOST IN THE NEWS CYCLE A LITTLE BIT, BUT THE BOTTOM LINE
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:45.080
  • IS, JAY, THIS IS THE RIGHT POLICY TO MAKE. SO, OF COURSE,
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:48.170
  • PUTTING IT OFF FOR POLITICAL REASONS WOULD NOT BE THE RIGHT
  • 00:13:48.180 --> 00:13:50.210
  • THING TO DO. THE VOICE OF THE UNITED STATES, IN THIS REGION,
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:53.000
  • IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE. -YEAH, I'M GONNA GO THROUGH ON
  • 00:13:53.010 --> 00:13:55.020
  • THE NEXT SEGMENT OF THE BROADCAST THE THREE MAJOR THINGS
  • 00:13:55.030 --> 00:13:56.260
  • THAT HAVE BEEN DONE ON THE ISRAEL FRONT THAT HAVE HAPPENED
  • 00:13:56.270 --> 00:13:58.200
  • IN THE LAST THREE YEARS, AND THESE ARE VERY, VERY
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:14:00.180
  • SIGNIFICANT.
  • 00:14:00.190 --> 00:14:02.130
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:05.140
  • [MUSC]
  • 00:14:05.140 --> 00:14:07.060
  • JAY SEKULOW: HEY, WECOME BACK TO THE BROADCAST EVERYONE.
  • 00:14:07.070 --> 00:14:08.060
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING
  • 00:14:08.070 --> 00:14:09.170
  • THAT GOT REALLY OVERLOOKED IN THE NEWS, AND THAT WAS THE ISSUE
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:12.210
  • ON THE RECOGNITION THAT THE SO-CALLED SETTLEMENTS WERE, IN
  • 00:14:12.220 --> 00:14:15.270
  • FACT, ISRAEL'S SOVEREIGN PROPERTY THAT WAS MADE BY THE
  • 00:14:15.280 --> 00:14:18.060
  • TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. LET ME PLAY FOR YOU WHAT MIKE POMPEO
  • 00:14:18.070 --> 00:14:20.260
  • SAID, THE SECRETARY OF STATE ANNOUNCING THIS. AGAIN, IT GOT
  • 00:14:20.270 --> 00:14:24.030
  • OVERSHADOWED BY THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. BUT THIS IS A BIG
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:26.180
  • DEVELOPMENT AND IT FOLLOWS TWO OTHER ISSUES THAT ARE VERY
  • 00:14:26.190 --> 00:14:29.260
  • SIGNIFICANT ON THE ISRAEL FRONT. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THOSE AS
  • 00:14:29.270 --> 00:14:32.000
  • WELL. LET'S GO AHEAD AND PLAY WHAT MIKE POMPEO HAD TO SAY.
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:34.010
  • -THE CONCLUSION THAT WE WILL NO LONGER RECOGNIZE ISRAELI
  • 00:14:34.020 --> 00:14:37.050
  • SETTLEMENTS AS, PER SE, INCONSISTENT WITH INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:14:37.060 --> 00:14:39.190
  • LAW IS BASED ON THE UNIQUE FACTS, HISTORY, AND
  • 00:14:39.200 --> 00:14:43.150
  • CIRCUMSTANCES PRESENTED BY THE ESTABLISHING THE CIVILIAN
  • 00:14:43.160 --> 00:14:46.000
  • SETTLEMENTS IN THE WEST BANK. OUR DECISION TODAY DOES NOT
  • 00:14:46.010 --> 00:14:50.030
  • PREJUDICE OR DECIDE LEGAL CONCLUSIONS REGARDING SITUATIONS
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:53.160
  • IN ANY OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD. -ALL RIGHT, SO, THAT'S AN
  • 00:14:53.170 --> 00:14:57.010
  • INTERESTING STATEMENT BECAUSE IT LEAVES OPEN THE NEGOTIATION
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:14:59.030
  • ISSUE. BUT LET ME GO TO WHAT'S HAPPENED. FIRST, IT WAS THE
  • 00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:02.060
  • PRESIDENT RECOGNIZING THAT JERUSALEM WAS, IN FACT, THE
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:04.230
  • INTERNAL CAPITAL OF THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL-MAJOR
  • 00:15:04.240 --> 00:15:07.270
  • ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE JERUSALEM DECLARATION-TOOK PLACE IN 2018.
  • 00:15:07.280 --> 00:15:11.210
  • 2019 THIS YEAR EARLIER IN THE YEAR AROUND THE END OF APRIL,
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:15.090
  • WHAT HAPPENS? BENJAMIN NETANYAHU IS OVER IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:17.280
  • GOLAN HEIGHTS DECLARATION RECOGNIZING THAT THE GOLAN
  • 00:15:17.290 --> 00:15:20.280
  • HEIGHTS ARE NOW PART OF ISRAEL'S SOVEREIGNTY. AND SKIP, LET'S
  • 00:15:20.290 --> 00:15:24.100
  • TALK ABOUT THAT. STRATEGICALLY, THAT WAS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:27.230
  • OF THE ROLE THE GOLAN PLAYS. SKIP ASH: ABSOLUTELY! THE STATE
  • 00:15:27.240 --> 00:15:31.230
  • OF SYRIA ATTACKED ISRAEL THREE TIMES FROM THERE IN THE WAR FOR
  • 00:15:31.240 --> 00:15:37.050
  • INDEPENDENCE, IN 1967, AND IN 1973. AT THAT POINT, IN ISRAEL,
  • 00:15:37.060 --> 00:15:43.030
  • THE STATE OF ISRAEL IS ABOUT SIX MILES WIDE BETWEEN THE GOLAN
  • 00:15:43.040 --> 00:15:47.240
  • HEIGHTS AND LEBANON, IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL THAT THE
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:51.220
  • ISRAELIS CONTROL THAT. THERE IS A RULE IN INTERNATIONAL LAW THAT
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:55.170
  • YOU CANNOT GAIN TERRITORY THROUGH AGGRESSIVE WAR. ISRAEL
  • 00:15:55.180 --> 00:16:00.110
  • DIDN'T GAIN THIS TERRITORY THROUGH AGGRESSIVE WAR. THEY
  • 00:16:00.120 --> 00:16:02.290
  • GAINED THIS TERRITORY IN A DEFENSIVE WAR TO STOP THE
  • 00:16:03.000 --> 00:16:05.230
  • AGGRESSION OF SYRIA. AND SYRIA, NOW, IS PAYING A PRICE FOR ITS
  • 00:16:05.240 --> 00:16:09.230
  • AGGRESSION BY LOSING ITS TERRITORY. THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:16:09.240 --> 00:16:12.200
  • THE RIGHT DECISION ON THE PART OF OUR GOVERNMENT. AND IT'S
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:15.060
  • ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL FOR THE DEFENSE OF ISRAEL. -WES, SEEMS
  • 00:16:15.070 --> 00:16:18.110
  • TO ME THAT THERE'S A CONSISTENT TRUMP DOCTRINE HERE THAT'S
  • 00:16:18.120 --> 00:16:24.020
  • DEVELOPING WITH REGARD TO ISRAEL. YOU SEE IT IN THE
  • 00:16:24.030 --> 00:16:25.270
  • JERUSALEM DECLARATION WITH THE MOVE TO RECOGNIZING THE CAPITAL
  • 00:16:25.280 --> 00:16:28.260
  • AS JERUSALEM. YOU SEE IT WITH THE GOLAN DECLARATION. YOU NOW
  • 00:16:28.270 --> 00:16:31.120
  • SEE IT WITH THE SETTLEMENT ISSUE. WESLEY SMITH: YEAH, AND
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:33.170
  • MOVING OUR EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM, WHICH WAS A BIG DEAL. PRESIDENTS
  • 00:16:33.180 --> 00:16:37.040
  • HAVE PROMISED THAT FOR MULTIPLE ADMINISTRATION'S -THE LAW HAS
  • 00:16:37.050 --> 00:16:39.150
  • BEEN ON THE BOOK FOR 20 YEARS BUT NEVER ENFORCED. -YEAH, BUT
  • 00:16:39.160 --> 00:16:41.090
  • WOULD NOT DO IT. YOU KNOW, SKIP'S EXACTLY RIGHT. THE GOLAN
  • 00:16:41.100 --> 00:16:43.110
  • HEIGHTS ARE SO STRATEGICALLY IMPORTANT TO ISRAEL. ROUTINELY,
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:46.250
  • OVER THE YEARS, ISRAEL'S ENEMIES HAVE USED THE GOLAN HEIGHTS TO
  • 00:16:46.260 --> 00:16:52.030
  • SHELL CIVILIANS FROM THAT REGION., AND SO, ISRAEL'S
  • 00:16:52.040 --> 00:16:55.020
  • SECURITY IS AT STAKE. AS I'VE SAID BEFORE ON THIS BROADCAST,
  • 00:16:55.030 --> 00:16:58.010
  • ISRAEL IS NEVER THE AGGRESSOR IN ANY WAR THEY'VE HAD TO FIGHT.
  • 00:16:58.020 --> 00:17:01.280
  • THEY HAVE FOUGHT FOR THEIR SURVIVAL. AND PART OF THE
  • 00:17:01.290 --> 00:17:04.210
  • PALESTINIAN MAKE UP IN THAT AREA OF THE WORLD, INCLUDES PEOPLE
  • 00:17:04.220 --> 00:17:10.030
  • WHO DO NOT WANT PEACE WITH ISRAEL, JAY. THEY WANT THE
  • 00:17:10.040 --> 00:17:13.170
  • DESTRUCTION, THE ANNIHILATION OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL, GROUPS LIKE
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:16.200
  • HAMAS AND THE PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD. AND SO, THEY FACE
  • 00:17:16.210 --> 00:17:20.140
  • ENEMIES EVERY DAY AND THEIR EXISTENCE IS AT STAKE. AND I
  • 00:17:20.150 --> 00:17:24.030
  • APPLAUD THE ADMINISTRATION FOR WHAT THEY'RE DOING. -I WANT TO
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:26.060
  • PLAY THE REPORTER QUESTION TO MIKE POMPEO ABOUT THIS AND GET
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:29.010
  • EVERYBODY'S REACTION. I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT. LISTEN TO NUMBER
  • 00:17:29.020 --> 00:17:31.010
  • 28. -I'M WONDERING IF YOU ARE AT ALL CONCERNED THAT THIS
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:34.020
  • POSITION, THIS REVERSAL OF THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION'S
  • 00:17:34.030 --> 00:17:38.250
  • POSITION, IS GOING TO INCREASE THE ISOLATION OF THE U.S.,
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:42.290
  • PARTICULARLY, IN THE U.N. AND AROUND THE WORLD. BECAUSE PRETTY
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:46.180
  • MUCH EVERYONE ELSE HAS HELD THE POSITION THAT, IF NOT ILLEGAL,
  • 00:17:46.190 --> 00:17:50.210
  • THEY ARE, AT LEAST, INCONSISTENT WITH INTERNATIONAL LAW. -WELL,
  • 00:17:50.220 --> 00:17:54.150
  • I MUST SAY, SADLY, THERE HASN'T BEEN MUCH SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL IN
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:58.240
  • THE YEARS LEADING UP TO THIS. IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE MORE
  • 00:17:58.250 --> 00:18:02.110
  • ISOLATION, UNFORTUNATELY, AT THE U.N. AS A RESULT OF THIS
  • 00:18:02.120 --> 00:18:05.290
  • DECISION. -SO I THINK THAT CAPSULIZED EXACTLY WHAT THE
  • 00:18:06.000 --> 00:18:09.070
  • PROBLEM IS. THE U.N. HAS A HISTORY, JORDAN, OF ANTI-ISRAEL
  • 00:18:09.080 --> 00:18:12.280
  • ANIMUS. JORDAN SEKULWO: HISTORY, YES. I MEAN, THE NUMBER ONE
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:15.290
  • COUNTRY CONDEMNED BY THE U.N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS THE JEWISH
  • 00:18:16.000 --> 00:18:20.270
  • STATE OF ISRAEL. SO, IT IS ISRAEL THAT IS NUMBER ONE. IT'S
  • 00:18:20.280 --> 00:18:24.170
  • NOT ANY DICTATORSHIPS OR IT'S NOT THE ASSAD REGIME IN SYRIA.
  • 00:18:24.180 --> 00:18:31.180
  • IT WASN'T SADDAM HUSSEIN'S IRAQ. IT IS ISRAEL THAT IS NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:18:31.190 --> 00:18:37.140
  • THE MOST CONDEMNED NATION IN THE WORLD BY THE UNITED NATIONS IS
  • 00:18:37.150 --> 00:18:42.130
  • THE STATE OF ISRAEL. -ALL RIGHT NOW, THANN, FROM YOUR
  • 00:18:42.140 --> 00:18:46.020
  • PERSPECTIVE IN DEALING WITH THE U.N., THE FACT THAT THE
  • 00:18:46.030 --> 00:18:47.280
  • PRESIDENT MADE THIS MOVE ALSO WAS SIGNIFICANT, ESPECIALLY NOW.
  • 00:18:47.290 --> 00:18:51.060
  • IT'S NOT GONNA BE POPULAR IN THE U.N., NO QUESTION ABOUT IT, BUT
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:53.150
  • IT'S THE RIGHT MOVE FOR OUR ALLY. THANN BENNETT: THE FACT
  • 00:18:53.160 --> 00:18:56.250
  • THAT IT'S NOT POPULAR AT THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE FACT THAT
  • 00:18:56.260 --> 00:18:59.070
  • IT ISOLATES US FROM THOSE IN THE UNITED NATIONS IS A BADGE OF
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:01.250
  • HONOR ON THIS ISSUE. NOT A PROBLEM, JAY. LOOK, JORDAN'S
  • 00:19:01.260 --> 00:19:04.200
  • CORRECT. THERE HAVE BEEN MORE CENSURES OUT OF THE UNITED
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:07.060
  • NATIONS AGAINST THE STATE OF ISRAEL THAN, GET THIS, ALL OF
  • 00:19:07.070 --> 00:19:10.130
  • THE OTHER NATIONS OF THE WORLD COMBINED. IT'S NOT IRAN. IT'S
  • 00:19:10.140 --> 00:19:13.140
  • NOT SYRIA. IT'S NOT CUBA. IT'S NOT ANY OF THE LISTS OF OTHERS.
  • 00:19:13.150 --> 00:19:16.140
  • IT'S THE STATE OF ISRAEL. AND JAY, I WOULD, ACTUALLY, ADD THE
  • 00:19:16.150 --> 00:19:20.050
  • UNITED NATIONS TO YOUR LIST OF THREE MAJOR MOVES THAT THIS
  • 00:19:20.060 --> 00:19:22.200
  • ADMINISTRATION HAS MADE ON ISRAEL, BECAUSE WHEN ANYTHING
  • 00:19:22.210 --> 00:19:25.190
  • THAT THE UNITED NATION DOES THAT HAS ANY SORT OF TEETH OR
  • 00:19:25.200 --> 00:19:28.210
  • ENFORCEMENT IN IT IS PASSED, IT ULTIMATELY HAS TO GO THROUGH THE
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:31.240
  • UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL TO BE APPROVED. AND THE UNITED
  • 00:19:31.250 --> 00:19:35.040
  • STATES HAS VETO POWER ON THAT COUNCIL. AT THE END OF THE OBAMA
  • 00:19:35.050 --> 00:19:38.230
  • ADMINISTRATION, AS YOU KNOW, JAY, THE UNITED STATES DECIDED
  • 00:19:38.240 --> 00:19:42.100
  • TO STOP USING THAT VETO POWER AND REFUSED TO STAND BY ITS ALLY
  • 00:19:42.110 --> 00:19:45.220
  • ISRAEL. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, JAY, HAS
  • 00:19:45.230 --> 00:19:48.090
  • REINSTATED THAT VETO. SO, THE UNITED NATIONS, IN MY VIEW, IS
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:52.070
  • JUST AS SIGNIFICANT AS THOSE THREE ITEMS YOU MENTIONED. IT'S
  • 00:19:52.080 --> 00:19:54.230
  • MAYBE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT INTERNATIONAL PLACE WHERE THE
  • 00:19:54.240 --> 00:19:58.110
  • UNITED STATES IS ONCE AGAIN STANDING BY ITS ALLIES. -SKIP,
  • 00:19:58.120 --> 00:20:00.290
  • HOW DO YOU SEE THIS LINING UP AS IT RELATES TO RESOLUTIONS OF A
  • 00:20:01.000 --> 00:20:04.090
  • PEACE PROCESS? OF COURSE, THE PEACE PROCESS IS IN PRETTY BAD
  • 00:20:04.100 --> 00:20:06.170
  • SHAPE RIGHT NOW. -WELL, I THINK, YOU KNOW, THE
  • 00:20:06.180 --> 00:20:10.070
  • PALESTINIANS HAVE BEEN GIVEN MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES TO GET 95
  • 00:20:10.080 --> 00:20:14.080
  • UP TO 98 PERCENT OF WHAT THEY ASKED FOR AND THEY DECLINED TO
  • 00:20:14.090 --> 00:20:19.290
  • ACCEPT THAT DEAL. SO, AS SOMEBODY SAID EARLIER, THEY
  • 00:20:20.000 --> 00:20:23.020
  • DON'T KNOW HOW TO TAKE YES FOR AN ANSWER. SO, I THINK WHAT
  • 00:20:23.030 --> 00:20:26.180
  • WE'RE DOING NOW IS SAYING, OKAY, IF YOU WANT TO SIT ON YOUR HANDS
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:29.060
  • AND YOU WANT TO COMPLAIN, WE'RE NOT GOING TO PANDER TO YOU
  • 00:20:29.070 --> 00:20:32.080
  • ANYMORE. IF YOU WANT TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT MAKING THE
  • 00:20:32.090 --> 00:20:35.100
  • COMPROMISES THAT ARE NECESSARY TO GET YOUR STATE, THEN THE
  • 00:20:35.110 --> 00:20:39.020
  • ISRAELIS ARE READY TO LISTEN. AND WE'RE, AS THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:20:39.030 --> 00:20:41.210
  • ARE READY TO SUPPORT THAT. BUT IF YOU'RE GOING TO PLAY GAMES,
  • 00:20:41.220 --> 00:20:44.040
  • WE'RE TIRED OF PLAYING GAMES, WE'RE GOING TO CORRECT THIS
  • 00:20:44.050 --> 00:20:46.170
  • HISTORICAL ANOMALY THAT AFFLICTS ONLY ISRAEL, AND YOU CAN SIT
  • 00:20:46.180 --> 00:20:51.120
  • THERE AND COMPLAIN TO YOUR HEART'S CONTENT. IF YOU WANT TO
  • 00:20:51.130 --> 00:20:53.240
  • DEAL, THE ISRAELIS ARE READY. WE'RE READY, IF YOU DON'T WANT
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:56.220
  • TO DEAL, THAT'S FINE, TOO. -CAMBRIA IS CALLING FROM UTAH
  • 00:20:56.230 --> 00:20:59.220
  • ON LINE ONE. CAMBRIA, WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE. YOU'RE ON THE
  • 00:20:59.230 --> 00:21:02.100
  • AIR. -HI, CAMBRIA. -HI, THANKS FOR TAKING MY CALL. -SURE. -A
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:07.010
  • QUESTION AND THEN, WELL, ACTUALLY, A COMMENT. FIRST, I
  • 00:21:07.020 --> 00:21:09.270
  • WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR BOOK ON ISRAEL. -GREAT! -AND
  • 00:21:09.280 --> 00:21:12.260
  • ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO READ IT BECAUSE IT HIGHLIGHTS, SO
  • 00:21:12.270 --> 00:21:16.190
  • ELOQUENTLY, THE RIGHT FOR ISRAEL TO THEIR LAND. AND I THINK
  • 00:21:16.200 --> 00:21:20.190
  • THAT'S FUNDAMENTAL FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THIS WHOLE
  • 00:21:20.200 --> 00:21:24.010
  • CONVERSATION. THE QUESTION IS REGARDING THE ICC'S. -YES? -IS
  • 00:21:24.020 --> 00:21:28.290
  • THERE A WAY THAT WE CAN ENCOURAGE OUR ALLIES TO PULL
  • 00:21:29.000 --> 00:21:32.260
  • AWAY FROM THE ICC, THEREFORE, TAKING THE LEVERAGE OUT? -WELL,
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:36.220
  • LOOK, TWO THIRDS, IT'S AN INTERESTING ASPECT, SKIP. THIS
  • 00:21:36.230 --> 00:21:39.060
  • IS SOMETHING WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IN OUR ICC ARGUMENT, AND THAT IS
  • 00:21:39.070 --> 00:21:42.110
  • WHILE TWO-THIRDS OF THE WORLD'S COUNTRIES ARE MEMBERS, IT ONLY
  • 00:21:42.120 --> 00:21:45.020
  • REPRESENTS ONE-THIRD OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION. SKIP ASH:
  • 00:21:45.030 --> 00:21:48.140
  • OH, THAT'S IT. THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT. IN THIS SENSE, WE ARE
  • 00:21:48.150 --> 00:21:51.290
  • EQUATING LICHTENSTEIN AND SAN MARINO AND LUXEMBOURG AND THOSE
  • 00:21:52.000 --> 00:21:57.050
  • LITTLE NATIONS WITH THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA AND INDIA AND
  • 00:21:57.060 --> 00:22:01.030
  • THE UNITED STATES, THESE HUGE POPULATION AREAS. THE PROBLEM IS
  • 00:22:01.040 --> 00:22:04.200
  • THEY'RE NOT GOING TO WITHDRAW BECAUSE IT'S POLITICALLY CORRECT
  • 00:22:04.210 --> 00:22:07.110
  • TO BE THERE, AND WE'RE NEVER GOING TO GET OUR EUROPEAN ALLIES
  • 00:22:07.120 --> 00:22:10.010
  • OUT OF THERE. -THAT DOES IT FOR THE BROADCAST. THANK YOU FOR
  • 00:22:10.020 --> 00:22:12.020
  • YOUR SUPPORT OF TBN. THAT KEEPS OUR BROADCAST ON THE AIR EACH
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:15.080
  • AND EVERY WEEK.
