The Palestinians are a greater threat to Israel then Iran

JD: Ken there is a report out from somewhat of a military expert. He says that the Palestinians are a greater threat to the Jewish state of Israel than the Iranians. How would your evaluation of that statement come out?

KT: You know, this is a matter of opinion Jimmy. There have been for decades people who have made this argument that the demographic threat of the Palestinians is greater than any military threat that Israel faces. But the Palestinians are not an existential threat to the state of Israel for one simple reason. They have no military capability that would allow them to breach Israel’s defenses and they no longer have the backing of powerful countries behind them. They have Iran behind them. The Palestinians are important in so far they play into Iran’s long-term plan to annihilate the state of Israel.

But in and of themselves I am less worried about this notion that the Palestinians demography and because their next door to Israel. There is one thing that I think is very important in this annalist by my good friend to the Middle East forum run by Dan Pipes and that is they argue that victory in war does not come when one side declares victory. It comes when the other side admits defeat. That is so true in the Middle East conflict. The Palestinians have never admitted defeat and that is why this conflict perpetually erupts into military action every couple of years.

JD: Ken Timmerman’s details on the statement that the Palestinians are a greater threat to Israel than Iran. 

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

The on going debate as to who is more of a danger to Israel, the Palestinians or the Iranians can only be determined by going to the prophetic pages of God’s word, the Bible. The ancient Jewish prophets spoke of this issue. Ezekiel mentions Persia in Ezekiel 38:5 which is modern day Iran and they are part of a coalition of nations who will attack Israel in the first 6 months of the 7 year Tribulation period; that coalition will be destroyed. The prophets Ezekiel, Malachi and Obadiah mentioned the Palestinians who will be in this world through the 7-year period of time and fierce enemies of the Jewish state of Israel. The truth is that longevity of time determines that the Palestinians are the greater threat to the Israel’s, Obadiah verses 15-18.
