There is a cabinet member of the Israeli government, Minister Bennett, who says there is no Israeli occupation of a Palestinian State because there never was a Palestinian State. These comments made by the Israeli government minister may actually be giving us indication that the Netanyahu government is moving away from a second state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I ask our broadcast partner Winkie Medad who has a political background and a journalistic background if indeed he thought PM Netanyahu was moving away from a Palestinian State.
Winkie Medad: I think Mister Netanyahu ever since 2009 in that famous Bar-llan University speech said that the resolution of the conflict would and should be based on two states, a Jewish State and an Arab State West of the Jordan River. He did make some conditions that Israel would stand very firm on, demilitarized and no refugees inside of Israel just to give two examples, but ever since then to that extent of negotiations have not succeeded in drawing the PA representatives to the table. They do not recognize the Jewish national ethos. We do not have a right to have our own sovereign country. This is a ridiculous situation that people would believe that Israel and the Arabs at the present moment would be able to negotiate peace.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The Israeli peace process may or may not bring about a Palestinian State, but Bible prophecy does speak of a second Jewish state and the stage is set for that prophecy to be fulfilled.
Only time will tell if there will be a Palestinian State. The Palestinians are working around the clock endeavoring to bring about a state for their people in a land where there has never been a Palestinian State.
Bible prophecy does tell us that there will be a second state in what is the modern day Jewish State of Israel. Ezekiel 37:15-23 informs us that in the future there will be a second Jewish State. One state will be called Israel, the other, Judah.
This ongoing battle for the Palestinians to establish a Palestinian State, a second state in the region, is only in reality setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
