The Jewish settlements, Jewish communities in the West Bank, better known as Judea and Samaria, these settlements are a hindrance to the peace process, but that is not a true statement according to politics and prophecy

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: An interesting statement from the Prime Minister, some have said he’s going to stop all constructions in the settlements, doesn’t look like that’s the case.

DD: Netanyahu has been a strong supporter of Jewish settlement building, Jewish expansion in the Biblical Promised Land and that means in the heartland, Judea and Samaria that includes of course Jerusalem. But it extends out as you know into Samaria down into Hebron south of Jerusalem where the patriarchs and the matriarchs are mostly buried apart from Rachel near Bethlehem also in Judea.

Jimmy, this week we had not only Prime Minister Netanyahu expressing his support for Jews living in their Biblical homeland something he talks about all the time. But we also had Mahmoud Abbas the PA leader not demand that Israel stop any more settlement expansion before he would return to the peace table. Now that is the first time since the Obama administration that Abbas has dropped that pre-condition for talking to the Israelis.

You know Israel’s not saying Netanyahu’s not saying we wont ever close down any of these communities but most of them will remain and will remain part of Israel and will be incorporated in Israel that’s always been his position. And maybe now the Palestinians responding to the larger situation in the Arab world. By the way that’s where that pressure is coming from the Saudi’s and the others in the situation in Qatar and all of that’s connected to it. They are moderating their line and if there is to be any sort of peace settlement, I’ve told you this so many times, there has to be a dealing with the Hamas movement in the Gaza Strip and in accordance to what the new administration in Washington wants. The Trump administration is thought to be a major force behind a little bit of moderating tone. That’s good news for the Israeli’s.

JD: David Dolan with insight into the Jewish settlement controversy.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The politics surrounding the Jewish settlements are not only controversial but it’s intense as well. The political prospective will never be resolved. However, the prophetic aspect of this issue is absolute. God has promised the land in question to the Jewish people, that’s Ezekiel chapter 34 & 37 where the Lord tells us what he will do. The Lord’s plan to give the land in question Judea and Samaria to the Jews that plan and promise will be fulfilled.
