Israeli PM Ehud Olmert warns of the end of the state of Israel

Israeli PM Olmert, in his return to Israel from the Annapolis Middle East Peace Summit, said that failure to negotiate a two state solution with the Palestinians would spell the end of the Jewish state of Israel.

The Israelis and the Palestinians agreed in Annapolis to set a goal of reaching a peace deal with US support in 2008 and US President George Bush called Annapolis the first substantive Arab-Israeli peace talks in some seven years, a hopeful beginning for Middle East peace. Meanwhile, the majority of Israelis believe that the Annapolis Summit was a failure and the new Jerusalem Congress, an alternative summit held in Jerusalem, was addressed by one rabbi who called for a second Jewish state in Judea and Samaria.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The prospects for two states in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, either an Israeli and Palestinian state or two Jewish states, has a great prophetic significance according to the ancient Jewish prophets.

At Annapolis, Maryland, the Middle East Peace Summit delegates concluded that the way to peace in the Middle East is a two state solution, the state of Palestine and the state of Israel. Any other solution, according to Israeli PM Ehud Olmert, would bring about the end of the Jewish state of Israel. As the Annapolis Summit was taking place, there was an alternative summit being held in Jerusalem, the New Jewish Congress. One of the leading rabbis, a speaker at the Jerusalem summit, has called for a second Jewish state in Judea and Samaria if there is the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Either of the two state solutions has great prophetic significance for the Last Days. The ancient Jewish prophet Malachi, revealed that in the End Times, the Edomites, today's Palestinian people, would rebuild their nation, a Palestinian state in the Middle East, Malachi 1:1-4. Ezekiel, another Jewish prophet, wrote 2,500 years ago that there would be a second Jewish state in the Last Days located in Judea and Samaria and this second Jewish state would be called Judah, Ezekiel 37:15-23.

The stage is today being set for both of these prophecies to be fulfilled, an indication that we are quickly approaching the soon coming of Jesus Christ back to Jerusalem.
