Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced recently that in
an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital,
there will be no Israeli Jews living there which includes the almost
500,000 Jews that now are living in the area of Judea and Samaria
with over 200 Jewish settlements in the same area including the Old
City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
The Palestinian Authority president accused the United States of not
putting enough pressure on the Israeli government to stop
construction in the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria and the
eastern section of the city of Jerusalem.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
A statement by the Palestinian Authority president that there will be
no Jews in a Palestinian state contradicts and confirms the Bible
which reveals the end of times scenario for the Jewish people.
As the Jewish people and the Palestinians fail to bring about a
resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, both sides have been
using rhetoric that has not helped the peace process. Recently,
Palestinian President Abbas made the announcement that in a
Palestinian state there would not be any Jewish people. That's in
contradiction to the efforts to bring peace to the area by stating
that some Jewish settlements and settlers could choose to live where
they are living today which is in an area within the borders of what
could be the Palestinian state. It is interesting to note there are
hundreds of thousands of Palestinians today who are living in the
Jewish state. The Bible has insight into the future as it relates to
the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a conflict that has been going on
for some 4000 years.
The Israelis and the Palestinians both have ancestors and a history
as recorded in the Bible and this record starts in Genesis 25 with
the birth of twin boys, Jacob and Esau. A study of Bible history
brings us to the facts, Jacob's descendants are the Jewish people of
today and Esau's heritage would be the Palestinians of today. The
ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel reveals that in the last days the
Israelis will be killed by the Palestinians who will then take the
land that God has given the Jewish people, Ezekiel 35.
The Palestinians can say that there will be no Jewish people in a
Palestinian state but remember, Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
