In February of 1947, Great Britain, which had control of the area of the
Middle East that includes modern day Jordan and Israel and the areas
claimed today by the Palestinians, decided to turn the issue over to the
UN which then decided to establish two states at that time, one for
the Palestinians and one for the Jews.
The Palestinian rejection of the UN resolution was not only political,
but they launched a large scale terrorist campaign against the Jewish
people followed by an invasion of Israel by five Arab armies to destroy
Israel when it declared its independence in May of 1948.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The rejection of a UN resolution to establish the states of Palestine
and Israel in the Middle East in 1947 set the stage for the present day
conflict as well as the end of times scenario for these two peoples
that can be found in Bible prophecy.
The UN Resolution 181 passed on November 29, 1947 by a large majority of
the member states of the General Assembly set in place the
establishment of two new states in the Middle East, Israel and
Palestine. By direct order of the Palestinian leaders, the elderly,
women and children of the Palestinian people fled the area as the
militant Palestinians moved to annihilate the Jews so there would be
only one new state, Palestine.
This report of the beginnings of the present day Israeli-Palestinian
conflict is also the evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled. The
descendants of Esau, the Palestinians of today, vowed that they would
return and rebuild in what they claimed to be their land which is
modern day Israel, Malachi 1:4. The ancient prophet Ezekiel wrote in
Ezekiel 35 that these Palestinians would kill the Jews, verse 5, and
take their land, verse 10. Obadiah, another Jewish prophet, reveals
that the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will only come
about when the Messiah, Jesus Christ, returns to earth, Obadiah 15-18.
Palestinian rejection of the UN partition plan did indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
