Bono: UN Must Intervene And ‘Save America From Itself’

"America is a ship being navigated by a drunk, and manned by lost souls," according to U2 frontman Bono, who claims "the UN must intervene."

“America is a great ship being captained by a drunk, and navigated by lost souls,” according to U2 frontman Bono, who claims “the United Nations must intervene and save the United States from itself.”

Describing the Trump presidency as “the darkest era for America and the world since Nixon,” Bono told iHeartRadio that “the only answer” is a “UN intervention” that will “restore common sense and some degree of sanity” to a “punchdrunk nation that should be able to look in the mirror and realize that it would be wise to hand over control to a trusted friend for some time.”

“I am speaking out because I love America, I love America with a wild and furious passion. I am qualified to speak. Ireland is my mother. America is my sweetheart, the love of my life,” Bono said.

Taking advantage of the media spotlight while touring 2017 album Songs of Experience, Bono also opened up to Rolling Stone, outlining his vision for life in America post-Trump.

Asked by Rolling Stone if there can be “hope after Trump,” Bono said, “I think the moment just has to be reclaimed. This is surely the bleakest era since Nixon. It surely undermines the very idea of America, what is going on now.”

“We know some who should know better have tried to piggyback the man’s celebrity to get stuff done. They will live to regret it,” said Bono.

“Before I went out against him in the primaries, I called a lot of Republican friends that I have and said, ‘I can’t in all conscience be quiet as this hostile takeover of your party and perhaps the country happens.’ And I made the quote, and I still stand by it, ‘America is the greatest idea the world has ever had, and this is potentially the worst idea that has ever happened to it.’”

    Bono prefers a world where countries are ruled by pedophlies, that tells you all you need to know about the washedup has-been from the 70’s. Have another beer and sit down, try ruling your own country and leave others alone.

        But too often for many non-Jewish believers, the word “synagogue” merely refers to a non-believing Jewish place of worship, and so they would therefore see the word “synagogue” in Rev 2:9 and 3:9 as having a negative connotation. But the word doesn’t merely mean a “Jewish” place but an “assembly” place. Thus the phrase “synagogue of Satan” in these verses might better be translated as “an assembly of Satan” and thereby refer to an assembly, a cult of Gentiles calling themselves Jews, (i.e., today Mormons also call themselves “Jews”) who were persecuting the believers made up of both Messianic Jews and Messianic Gentiles. Satan had this legalistic cult of Gentiles, who called themselves Jews though they were not, spiritually deceived. Individuals and groups like this are acting as his agents against the true Messianic faith even while they give actual Jewish people a bad name!

          The Jews went into Africa and found an ancient story about the people of Egypt, then they stole it, copied it, plagiarized it, and wrote themselves into it, and twisted it to say they were held captive under a cruel Pharaoh.. These people wrote themselves into existence, then made themselves pre-existant of what already existed. And then said, what already existed came from them and they are gods chosen people and if anyone messes with them god is going to kick their behind.. If I was writing my own history I would say, if you bless me god will bless you and if you curse me god will curse you, and that’s exactly what
          they did.. Those people with a bogus history are bad news.

            A Few Forgotten Facts

            1. Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE, two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

            2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

            3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE, the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

            4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 CE lasted no more than 22 years.

            5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

            6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

            7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

            8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.

            9. In 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.

            10. The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution, and slaughter.

            11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000. The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.

            12. Arab refugees were intentionally not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people’s lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey.

            13. The Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.

            14. The PLO’s Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.

            15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.

            16. The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.

            17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel.

            18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.

            19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.

            20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.

            The History of the Region

            To understand the truth of modern day Israel, you must first have a clear understanding of the history of the region.

            Judea was an autonomous state in the Persian Empire following the return from Babylonian exile thanks to Cyrus, King of Persia. Following the death of Alexander the Great who had captured the Persian Empire, it became part of two Hellenistic.

            Following the Maccabean revolt, Judea became an independent state. Following the death of King Herod, the Romans seized it and it then became a Roman province. Judea was briefly independent during the first revolt against the Romans until it was finally destroyed when the Romans put down the revolt and destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in the year 70.

            Judah lost its independence to Rome in the year 70 and became again a colony. In the year 135, the Romans gave the country the name “Palaestina”. The name Palaestina, which became Palestine in English, is derived from Herodotus, who used the term Palaistine Syria to refer to the entire southern part of Syria, meaning “Philistine Syria.” This was to add insult to injury against the Jewish people. The intent was to remove any memory of a Jewish presence. The name was kept by the next possessors, the Byzantine Empire, and then by the conquering Arabs and their successors, the conquering Turks. Note that we have a succession of different nationalities, none of whom thought of themselves as Palestinians. They were the Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, or Turks.

            About 61 B.C., Roman troops under Pompei invaded Judea and sacked Jerusalem in support of King Herod. Judea had become a client state of Rome. During the seventh century (A.D. 600’s), Muslim Arab armies moved north from Arabia to conquer most of the Middle East, including Palestine. The Seljuk Turks conquered Jerusalem in 1071, but their rule in Palestine lasted less than 30 years.

            During the 7th century, Muslims invaded and the Crusaders from Europe ruled for a time until they were driven out. The Crusaders left Palestine for good when the Muslims captured Acre in 1291. During the post-crusade period, crusaders often raided the coast of Palestine. To deny the Crusaders gains from these raids, the Muslims pulled their people back from the coasts and destroyed coastal towns and farms. This depopulated and impoverished the coast of Palestine for hundreds of years.

            In the mid-1200’s, Mamelukes, originally soldier-slaves of the Arabs based in Egypt, established an empire that in time included the area of Palestine that lasted until the Ottoman Empire defeated the Mamelukes in 1517, and Palestine became part of the Ottoman Empire. The Turkish Sultan invited Jews fleeing the Spanish Catholic inquisition to settle in the Turkish empire, including several cities in Palestine. The Ottoman Empire ruled until the British took control of the area in 1917.

            In 1922, the British declared that the boundary of Palestine would be limited to the area west of the river. The area east of the river, called Transjordan, which is now the country of Jordan, was made a separate British mandate and eventually given independence. The British maintained control until 1948.

            There was always a Jewish population in the region, most of them resided in the religious communities in Jerusalem, Tz’fat, Tiberius, and Hebron. With Jewish immigration suddenly on the rise from the 1880’s on, the economy of this very under populated and very poor country began to rise dramatically, attracting a parallel stream of Arabs from the surrounding countries who came in looking for jobs. At the same time, Arab/Muslim nationalism and extremism began to rise, spurred by the influx of what they considered “Infidel Jews” and the breakup of the Turkish Empire followed by the occupation by European countries of much of the Middle East.

            From this time through the War of Independence in 1947-49, there were local Arab leaders who called for an independent Palestine (Arab state) in the entire country with not a single inch for a Jewish state. During the 1948 Israeli War of Independence, the local Arab armies and leaders identified with Syria, Jordan, and Egypt and thought of themselves as such. At the end of the war, the Arab allotted land was divided between Israel, Egypt (Gaza), and Jordan. The Egyptians refused to let the Gazans become independent or Egyptian citizens. Eventually, the Jordanians did allow some refugees become citizens, but not all. The Arab states are content to let their brother Arabs remain in those refugee camps that are really crowded and squalid towns and live like that since the UN supported them. Because of this, they make a great political tool used to invoke sympathy, especially in regard to the European countries. That is crass, unfeeling politics, but these same people do not hesitate to strap bombs to their young men and women.

            Another reason why the Palestinian Arabs fled is that they refused to live in a Jewish dominated state. Ironically, had they accepted the partition and those in Israel not fled, Israel would have had a huge and growing Arab population and indefensible borders.
