The Palestinians may declare their own state unilaterally

A senior Palestinian official has said that the Palestinians ought to unilaterally declare a state if peace talks with the Israelis do not succeed, adding that the Palestinians deserved independence more than Kosovo.

Another Palestinian official disagreed saying that the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) had declared independence in 1988 and now the Palestinian people need real independence, not a declaration, they need real independence by ending the Israeli occupation. These comments coming from key Palestinian officials even as the peace negotiations continue between the Israelis and the Palestinians while at the same time there is the continuation of Palestinian violence and Israeli military activity in Gaza.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

If the Palestinian people follow the lead of Kosovo and declare an independent state unilaterally, the End Times scenario of Bible prophecy will be set to be fulfilled.

Even though there has never been a Palestinian state throughout all of history, the world has now been led to believe that the Israelis must give back the Palestinian state. Until the Oslow Accords, the peace treaty between the Israelis and the Palestinians signed in 1993, there was never a legitimacy to the Palestinian claim of a state for the Palestinian people. Now, with Kosovo going against international law and declaring their own independence from Serbia, the Palestinians say they deserve to be an independent state as well.

This scenario was revealed 2,500 years ago by the ancient Jewish prophet Malachi just as the Old Testament Period was closing out. Malachi wrote that the descendants of Esau, the Edomites, would one day return and rebuild their nation, Malachi 1:4. God told Malachi that He would call the borders of the Edomites, the Palestinians of today, the borders of wickedness, Malachi 1:4. Obadiah wrote 2,800 years ago that the Last Days would see the Israelis and the Palestinians in conflict as they are today.

Declaration of a Palestinian state will indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
