U.S. President Bush strongly supports the creation of a Palestinian state

In a meeting with the PA President Mahmoud Abbas in New York City, President Bush reaffirmed his strong support for the creation of a Palestinian state which Bush said is in the best interest of the Palestinian people and the interest of Israel to have a democracy living side-by-side in peace.

Following the meeting with Abbas, President Bush received an update on the volatile region from his long time ally, Tony Blair, who after stepping down as PM of Great Britain became the Middle East Peace Envoy for the Quartet, the US, the EU, UN and Russia.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The strong support for the creation of a Palestinian state from US President George W. Bush is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the Last Days.

There have been a number of US presidents who have tried to bring about a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and all have failed. President Bush has worked at the task, but as his term draws to an end, the president is intensifying his efforts to resolve the conflict. The terminology used by President Bush is very interesting, he says he supports the "creation" of a Palestinian state, the operative word being creation. There has never been a Palestinian state in the past; therefore, if one is established, it will be a new creation.

This scenario fits right into the scenario of Bible prophecy for the Last Days. The ancient Jewish prophet Malachi wrote some 2,400 years ago that the Edomites, the Palestinian people of today, these descendants of Esau would bring about a state and that the Lord would call the borders of this state, the borders of wickedness, Malachi 1:3-4. Ezekiel 35, another prophetic passage on this issue, states that the Palestinian people would kill the Jews and take their land.

Strong US support for the creation of a Palestinian state does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
