The United States says that Jewish settlements in Israel are now legal

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The change in US policy announced by the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo making the statement that Israeli settlements, the Jewish settlements in the area of Judea and Samaria they are legal back in 2015. Then the Secretary of State John Kerry announced that they were illegal. The United States changing that policy how does this fit into everything going on?

DD: Well Netanyahu mentioned that in his Friday night posting on his Facebook page saying “I will implement annexation of all the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria if I remain in power”. And giving that as another reason that he should remain in power he said this is an historic opportunity that the US has given to Israel so he wants to do that.

 It is a consistence in Israel Jimmy as you know amongst probably about 70 percent the polls show the people believe that the Jewish people have a right to live Judea and Samaria. This is their ancient Biblical heartland. It of course was part of the British mandate given to Britain in 1922 to oversee the formation of a Jewish state in the area. That included Judea and Samaria the area was occupied by Jordan and then recaptured by Israel in a war that it didn’t start in 1967. And of course the settlements have been building up ever since. They’re just not going to include Eastern Jerusalem. There’s over a million Jews now that are living in areas that are disputed and that’s the point that the Israeli’s made and that Pompeo made. This is an occupied territory it’s disputed. But it’s clear that Jews are not going to evacuate their holiest land on earth and that’s just a reality that the US is recognizing now.

JD: David Dolan explaining the recent announcement by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the Jewish settlements in Israel are now legal. However, they’re on disputed real estate.

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

Since the establishment of the Jewish settlements over 50 years ago they have been the focus of the United Nations, European Union and Russia in a dispute with Israel that these settlements are illegal and that they should not be in Judea and Samaria. When established these settlements were referred to as the first line of defense for the Jewish state. The settlements in Judea and Samaria and including the Temple Mount in Jerusalem were promised to the Jewish people by God, that’s Ezekiel 36.

This land that was promised will become two Jewish states in the future, that’s Ezekiel 37:15-23. The change in US – Middle East policy announced by Mike Pompeo is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
