An Israeli official calls the UN ceasefire resolution a historic tragedy

A former foreign minister under Ariel Sharon's government, Silvan Shalom, has stinging criticism of the ceasefire plan formulated in the United Nations and he calls it a disgrace, and a historic tragedy that will mortgage Israel's future and cause his country to weep for generations.

Shalom said that the UN proposal would make Israel's position worse than it was at the beginning of the war and still leaves Hezbollah with weapons and munitions to continue their fight against Israel.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

At a strategic point in Israel's history, Gentile world powers are making decisions that could jeopardize the very existence of the Jewish state, a scenario that is found in Bible prophecy. The UN, an international political organization that is made up of Gentile world powers, has decided they have the authority to decide the destiny of the Jewish state of Israel, in particular the right to set in place a ceasefire that could jeopardize the very existence of the Jewish state.

Jesus Christ, in what is called His Olivet Discourse, taught that Jerusalem and the Jewish people would be controlled or as the text says, "Trodden down until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled." That phrase, "The times of the Gentiles", meaning when Gentiles, all people who are not Jewish, when Gentiles have control or rule over the Jewish people, that's found in Luke 21:24.

Daniel, an ancient Jewish prophet, also weighed in on this period of time and said that a revived Roman Empire would be in place to play a role in the Gentile world leadership as well, that's Daniel 7:23-24. The revived Roman Empire, though not totally in place right now, does have an infrastructure that could indeed fulfill the prophecy and it is known as the European Union. The only other factor needed for this prophetic scenario to be played out is for Iran, Syria, and Lebanon to be attacking Israel, and that scenario is found in Psalm 83.

The stage is set, all the actors are in place for this final drama to be played out.
