Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas celebrates the establishment of a terrorist organization as he calls for Palestinian unity

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is urging Hamas Islamist to agree to early elections, give up control of the Gaza Strip and hold talks with his Fatah political party in a desire to bring about Palestinian unity as the Palestinian Authority President marks the founding of the terrorist organization, Fatah, founded some forty-three years ago by Yasser Arafat.

Under Yasser Arafat, Fatah led the the way over these last forty years in the armed struggle against what they call Israeli occupation and have been at the forefront of this conflict until Hamas became the prominent leader of this armed struggle.

With Hamas making what appears to be good progress in the establishment of a Palestinian state and developing relations with the Israelis the Palestinian Authority President wants to bring the Hamas faction into the mix as they move towards what they hope will be the final status talks with the Israelis.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A united Palestinian people with a focus on a united plan for dealing with the Israeli government is a precursor to the prophetic scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

With his favored status among world leaders, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is now ready to unite the Palestinian people under one political flag. Winning favor with world leaders has been much easier than the task before the Palestinian leader as he moves to unite the political factions of the Palestinian people.

Nevertheless, Mahmoud Abbas believes that this is the time to bring about unity among the two main factions of the Palestinian body politic, Fatah and Hamas.

Whether Abbas will be successful in the short term is a question. However, there is no question that the Palestinians will unite in the long term with one goal, to wipe out the Jewish State of Israel.

Bible prophecy lays out this scenario for the last days with the predictions from a number of ancient Jewish prophets.

Ezekiel revealed that the struggle between the Israelis and the Palestinians would take place, that's found in Ezekiel 35. Malachi, in the first chapter of his prophecy, pre wrote history. He spoke of a plan by the Palestinians to return and rebuild.

Jeremiah and Obediah wrote over two thousand years ago of this struggle between the descendants of Esau, the Palestinian people; and the descendants of Jacob, the Jewish people. That's found in Jeremiah 49 and the entire book of Obediah. Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
