The Palestinian Authority (PA) President, Mahmoud Abbas, opened the gathering of 2,000 members of his political party, Fatah, in Bethlehem recently and immediately praised the shaheeds, the terrorists who became martyrs in the Palestinian struggle to establish a Palestinian state that they hope will replace the Jewish state of Israel.
This historic conference, the first in twenty years, called for continued resistance against Israel using militant force if necessary, to achieve their goal for the state of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital city.
The speakers and delegates accepted a Hamas-like platform, a terrorist platform, and indicated by that they are not true peace partners when they said there is only room for one state between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and that is a Palestinian state.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The Palestinian conference in Bethlehem which called for armed resistance against the state of Israel is a precursor to the prophetic scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.
For the first time in twenty years, the Palestinian political party Fatah held a major conference in Bethlehem recently and revealed their true colors. Listening to the 2,000 delegates in attendance at the conference and hearing the leaders of the Palestinian people call for ridding the Middle East of a Jewish state through arms struggle is a page out of Bible prophecy.
The Palestinian people of today are the descendants of the twin brother of Jacob whose descendants are the Jewish people of today. You can read much in Bible prophecy about the Edomites, the Palestinians. For example, Malachi 1, Jeremiah 49, the little book of Obadiah and Ezekiel 35.
Ezekiel, the ancient Jewish prophet, wrote 2,500 years ago that in the Last Days, the Palestinians would rise up to kill the Jewish people and to take their land, Ezekiel 35:5, 10. That little prophetic book written by Obadiah reveals that the Edomites, the Palestinian people, will be as if they have never been, a very strong prophecy.
The words and calls for actions against the Jewish people at the Palestinian conference in Bethlehem is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
