JD: Shannon Bream on Fox was just in Jerusalem and she interviewed the chief negotiator for the Palestinian people Saeb Erekat. He said look if you don’t restore the money to us if you don’t get rid of that declaration about Jerusalem you’re going to see blood in the streets. In other words his next thought was let’s go back to the violence that we have been using to try to win the victory in this issue.

IM: Ever since December 6th when Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital the Palestinian Authority has been trying to get people out to the streets to commit terror. They keep having these days that they call days of rage and they literally are calling for violence of terror.

And I spoke to a Palestinian while I was in Israel and I asked him why aren’t the Palestinian’s responding with terror like they did in the past. In 2014 Abbas wanted terror and they gave them terror. They gave them car ramming’s they gave them knifings. Why are they ignoring them now? He said the Palestinian population is disgusted and sick of their own leadership. Abbas calls for people to go out and fight and kill and all of our people are being killed all of our young people. And what do we have for it? Nothing, we have a corrupt leadership who we don’t trust. So, the people are disgusted with it. And this bears out what we see in polls eighty percent of Palestinian say that the leadership is corrupted. Sixty-five percent want Abbas to resign.

So, we have a situation today where Abbas is calling for violence now Abbas and all the leadership of Fatah and all the leadership of the PA and the people have just not come through for him. And I think that’s a very important change in the Israel-Palestinian world it could be that the people have had enough of their leadership. Maybe there’s an opportunity to find some other leaders there who’s might be interested in creating a different path toward peace with Israel.

JD: Itamar Marcus explaining how the Palestinian people are today rejecting a call to violence from the Palestinian leadership.

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

Today it seems that the Palestinian people are at odds with their leadership and are rejecting the call to become violent in order to win their right for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. That’s the reality today but that is not the rest of the story. We know what will be the end game in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The ancient prophet Malachi says that the Palestinian people will return and rebuild. Ezekiel chapter 35 says the Palestinian people will be violent they’ll kill the Jews and then steal the land. This scenario will be played out because it is God’s prophetic word which is absolute.
