The United States Human Rights Report is good and bad for Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The United States issue their annual human rights report. It looks like the Biden Administration has reaffirmed Jerusalem as the capitol of the Jewish State. Now that's good news isn't it?

WM: Yes it is. It seems they are going along with some of the language that the Trump Administration had improved upon over the past Administrations, that's correct. 

JD: And at the same time three affirming the fact that Israel has sovereignty over the Golan Heights which is a key security location.

WM: That is correct, although Jimmy they have replaced some of the language that had been switched by the Trump Administration. They're now back to using the term occupied. It's when these reports echo a lot of the ingos that frequently work on behalf of the Palestinian National Authority. They're agenda that they're pushing it sneaks their way into the State Department reports.

JD: Define that terminology occupied territories. 

WM: In international law when one state engages in hostilities of any kind and takes over territory of another state that's called belligerent occupation. It results from an act of war or hostility. They try to apply to Israel's administration over Judea and Samaria. That is wrong. Palestine never existed as a state. Secondly of course Israel has a better claim to Judea and Samaria because that was the territory the League of Nations recognized as the territory of the Jewish national home. So to use occupation and describe what Israel is doing in Judea and Samaria is simply wrong factually. 

JD: Winkie Medad with the details on the annual US Human Rights report some good and some bad for the Jewish State of Israel.

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

The United States Human Rights report reaffirmed that Jerusalem is the political capitol of the Jewish State and has sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Now that's all good however, the statement that Judea and Samaria is occupied territories is not Biblical. This is land that God promised the Jewish people and that's Ezekiel 34. In fact the land actually belongs to God, Leviticus 25:23. God has appointed the Jewish people caretakers of this land not occupiers.
