Israeli Knesset member Ari Eldad says documents have been delivered to ten Jordanian embassies around the world stating that there is already a Palestinian state in the Middle Eastern country of Jordan and there is no need for an additional one in the heart of the land of Israel. Eldad says that Jordan knows very well that 80% of Jordanian citizens are Palestinian Arabs and if they decide to go to the Arab street and stage a revolution, the Kingdom of Jordan will change into the homeland of the Palestinian people.
Jordanian King Abdullah, as did his father before him, King Hussein, both have appeased the Palestinians in their country and have watched very closely the efforts to bring resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The declaration by an Israeli lawmaker that the Middle East nation of Jordan is the Palestinian state is correct that is according to Bible history and Bible prophecy.
Israeli Knesset member Ari Eldad distributed petitions to ten Jordanian embassies around the world including embassies in Washington DC and Moscow, Russia stating that Jordan is the Palestinian state in the Middle East. Eldad stated that over 80% of Jordan's population today is Palestinian thus the Israeli lawmaker sees no need for another Palestinian state especially in the heart of the Jewish state of Israel. Knesset member Eldad is right on his history, even he is using demographics for the modern-day state of Jordan to prove his point.
In Genesis 36 God sent the descendants of Esau, the Palestinian people of today, into Mount Seir which is today the lower third of modern-day Jordan referred to in Bible times as Edom. Bible prophecy reveals that these people, the Edomites or the Palestinian people of today, will return to rebuild (Malachi 1). Additional prophetic passages like Ezekiel 35 and Jeremiah 49 foretell of an ongoing conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians, the Edomites and the Jews. This conflict will be resolved when Jesus Christ returns to the earth and that is all detailed in the prophetic book of Obadiah 15-18. Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
