An Arab member of the Israeli Knesset has called for the liberation of Jerusalem by the Moslem world

At the Jerusalem First Conference, recently held in Ramallah in the area of Judea and Samaria, the chairman of the United Arab List - Israeli Knesset member Ibrahim Sarsour - called on all Arabs and Moslems to focus their energies on the future of Jerusalem and act in concert to become a torrent on the road to liberating Jerusalem.

Sarsour emphasized the religious importance of Jerusalem for the Moslems and said that Israel's plans for the Temple Mount and around the city must be resisted. The Arab Knesset member recalled how the Moslems liberated Jerusalem during the Crusades and said it could be done today, that the liberation of Jerusalem is not an impossible mission and it must be done.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The call for the Moslem world to liberate Jerusalem by an Arab member of the Israeli Knesset is actually a call for the End Times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The status of Jerusalem for a negotiated peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians has always been pushed to the end of any agenda for peace talks between the two parties. Every Israeli PM from the very beginning of the modern-day state of Israel has said that Jerusalem is the undivided, eternal capital of the Jewish people. The Palestinian leadership as well has called for Jerusalem, if not all of it at least a portion of the holy city, to be the capital any future Palestinian state. With the call by an Arab member of the Israeli Knesset for the Moslem world to rise to the occasion and liberate the city of Jerusalem from the Israeli occupation, it has ratcheted up the discussion several notches.

This scenario is exactly what the ancient Jewish prophets wrote down 2,500 years ago would happen at the time of the end. Zechariah said that there would be those who would become arrogantly secure in their control of the city of Jerusalem, that's Zechariah 1:15. Joel, another Jewish prophet, wrote that a mighty Moslem militia would come to Jerusalem to liberate the holy city and take it away from the Jewish people, that's Joel 2:2-3.

The call for Moslems to liberate Jerusalem is indeed a call for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
