JD: David, there was an Arab League Summit that took place over in Jordan this week. Explain what the Arab League is and are they a pretty powerful organization in the Middle East?
DD: Well they are Jimmy because all Arab countries are members of that 22 countries participate. The largest member is Egypt and it was a very controversial when they signed the peace treaty with Israel in 1979. They were actually kicked out of the Arab League even though they were its largest member. They do try to speak with one voice and one thing they do is attack Israel on a regular bases.
JD: And when we think about the Arab League as it relates to Jerusalem what the Trump administration said they’re going to move the US embassy into Jerusalem.
DD: Jerusalem is the flag that they raise always. They believe the conquest of Jerusalem by Moslem forces soon after the creation of the religion was a demonstration that Allah was with them and God was with them and they would prevail over everybody else and that the Jews were no longer the chosen people but the Moslems were and especially Arab Moslems. So that’s what they believe so therefore Jerusalem is a religious symbol to them of great importance of course it is to the Jews. To the Jews it’s not just a symbol it is their Holiest City on earth. The Arab League want to see Jerusalem back under Islamic totally in East Jerusalem or over the Temple Mount actually in the whole country as Hamas and others made clear.
JD: David Dolan our broadcast partner that has the insight into the power and the influence of the Arab League.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The 22 Middle Eastern states in the Arab League have a major influence in the Middle East and they want to expand their power across the entire region. Their plan to accomplish that goal is to attack the Jewish state both verbally and or militarily. Each member of the Arab League hates the Jews and wants to rid the entire world of the Jewish people.
The Arab League also claims Jerusalem as a city holy to the Arabs. The Arab League has warned the Trump administration that blood will flow in the streets of Jerusalem if the United States moves its embassy into Jerusalem.
This focus by the Arab League on Jerusalem is actually a prophecy, a scenario foretold by the ancient Jewish prophets. Jerusalem is the center of controversy, that’s Zechariah 12:2 and will be that center of controversy until the Messiah Jesus Christ comes to claim Jerusalem as His Holy capital, that’s Zechariah 14:4.
