Jordan's King Abdullah says the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the cause of all problems in the Middle East

Addressing a joint session of the US Congress, Jordan's King Abdullah told American lawmakers that they cannot stand on the sidelines as spectators, but they must get involved in helping to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before the entire region breaks out in a major war.

The Jordanian monarch called for the political leaders of the US to focus more on the Israeli-Palestinian struggle than the Iraqi war. Abdullah says now is the time to work out a peace agreement for the Israelis and the Palestinians that will benefit both sides. Like his late father King Hussein, King Abdullah has a great interest in the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict due to the large Palestinian population that live in Jordan today.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

World leaders calling for a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are looking for a quick fix, which will not happen according to Bible prophecy.

Jordan's King Abdullah made an impassioned plea to the joint Houses of the Congress as he called for greater US involvement in the Middle East peace process. The king said that a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the central issue in all of the problems in the Middle East. Abdullah said that the Iraq War is not as critical as the struggle between the Israelis and the Palestinians. King Abdullah's words echoed the statements of the new Secretary General of the UN, Ban Ki Moon, who said that if there was a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, peace will follow in the Middle East.

Any quick fix in this situation will not happen according to the ancient Jewish prophet, Obadiah. Twenty-eight hundred years ago, Obadiah said that it will be the end of the seven year Tribulation Period before the Israelis will completely destroy the Palestinians at the time that the Messiah comes back to Jerusalem, that's Obadiah 16-18.

Malachi, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel all agree with Obadiah. These ancient Jewish prophets foretold the destruction of the Edomites by Israel. By the way, the Edomites are the descendants of Esau, they are the Palestinian people of today.
