The new UN Secretary General says the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the core of solving all the problems in the Middle East

In an interview with a South Korean newspaper, the new Secretary General of the United Nations (UN) - Ban Ki-Moon - says that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is at the core of solving all the problems in the Middle East.

Ban said that if the issues with the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians go well, in other words resolution of the conflict, other issues in the Middle East including: Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, and Syria, are likely to follow suit. The new Secretary General's position is widely at variance with Jerusalem's position which is that the roots of the problems in the Middle East are: terrorism, Islamic radicalism, and extremism and hatred of the West.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The UN's new Secretary General is correct, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is key to resolving the problems in the Middle East, that is according to Bible Prophecy.

The newly appointed Secretary General of the UN, Ban Ki-Moon, in his first day on the job stated that his main focus would be a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; he said it is key to resolving all the problems of the Middle East. The truth is that the UN Secretary General is correct for the long term, but not necessarily the short term.

Bible prophecy reveals a seven year period of time yet future, howbeit near future, when the Middle East conflict will explode involving nations like Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey, and others. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict will extend throughout the seven year Tribulation Period, that's found in Obadiah 15-18. Ezekiel 35, Malachi 1, and the book of Obadiah reveal the prophecies pertaining to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that has actually been going on for almost 4,000 years, since the days of Esau and Jacob, the twin brothers of Isaac and Rebekah, who were told by the way of the long-lasting conflict. This conflict will be resolved at the return of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem, that's found in Obadiah 18.

Ban Ki-Moon's assessment is correct, but the resolution of the conflict is at least seven years into the future.
