JD: Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas did attend the funeral of the late Shimon Peres. This was a very significant move on the part of President Abbas. David Dolan the man who covers the Middle East as our broadcast partner tells us how significant it was.
DD: It was significant that Abbas came; he was invited to come to the funeral. He decided as you say against a lot of opposition inside the Palestinian political world, to do that. But, the peace process hasn’t worked and Hamas is still very much a major player.
Of course it was Benjamin Netanyahu that warned both Peres and Ariel Sharon that the withdrawal from Gaza in 2005 would in fact only strengthen Hamas, and strengthen the war against Israel and would not lead to a revival of the peace process. Of course Rabin was also a partner of Peres and they worked together on the Oslo Accords. But on the Gaza withdrawal it was Ariel Sharon and Peres, it didn’t’ work, Netanyahu was right, but he didn’t gloat at the funeral by any means, over that; he just spoke very positively about Peres. And as I said they were very close friends.
JD: David Dolan my broadcast partner in the Middle East reporting on the activities and the reactions of the Palestinian people to the death of Shimon Peres.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Palestinian reaction to the death of the Israeli founding father and political leader Shimon Peres gives us insight into the stage setting for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
The Israeli Palestinian conflict has been going on now for some 4,000 years since the birth of Jacob and Esau found in Genesis 25. This conflict will continue until Jesus Christ comes back to the earth. And in fact Malachi 1 says, the Palestinians will return and rebuild. The Bible tells us that God will call their borders the borders of wickedness. Ezekiel 35 says that they will kill the Jews and then steal their land.
Ultimately, the destiny of the Palestinian people is found in the book of Obadiah, where the Lord says they will be as if they have never been. The fact is Palestinian people have more judgment pronounced against them than any other people group in the entire Word of God.
The Palestinians ultimately accordingly to Obadiah will be wiped out forever. Palestinians who are happy for the death of the founding father of Israel Shimon Peres is actually evidence and is really setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
