King Abdullah Demands ’67 Borders

8 08 2017

King Abdullah and AbbasYesterday King Abdullah of Jordan upped the ante as a result of the recent Temple Mount riots. He met Monday with Palestinian Authority President Abbas in Ramallah (only 11 miles north of Jerusalem). They agreed on new demands of the US regarding the failed “two state” idea that gives the Palestinians a new state in Biblical Judea and Samaria which the world calls the “West Bank.”

They are demanding this state on the pre-1967 Six Day War borders. They also demand a complete freeze in Jews building homes including eastern Jerusalem. Every Palestinian offer always includes pre-conditions which are always a non-starter. Israel cannot cede negotiable points before even convening; because then Abbas simply demands more concessions.

My opinion is that Israel should only agree to the post-1967 borders. I wrote about it in two previous blogs with maps. Click on each title.

Yes to ’67 Borders

Israel Should Return to 1967 Borders!

On the same day Yehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates. Genesis 15:18

Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? ​​The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yehovah and against His Anointed, saying, ​​“Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.” ​​He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; Yehovah shall hold them in derision. ​​Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: ​​“Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.” Psalm 2:1-6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Time to Annex Judea & Samaria (aka West Bank)

15 03 2016

Israeli flag flutters over view of Jewish settlement of OfraThere is a time for everything under the sun, according to King Solomon:

To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1

It is time to annex Judea and Samaria which the world calls the West Bank. The Oslo accords have failed. The two-state plan has failed. The Middle East is on fire with the Muslim Brotherhood taking over another state every few months. Arab citizens of Israel are the only Arabs enjoying freedom, peace and liberty. Most Palestinians would be far better off as citizens of Israel. The fumbling obstinate dictatorship of Abbas is no solution. And if he achieved Palestinian statehood, he would be immediately overthrown by Hamas. It is time for Israel to act proactively. Many Israeli’s are ready for a bold solution. Even leaders in the government and the Knesset are speaking openly about annexation.

HotovelyDeputy Transportation Minister MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) said on Sunday that it was time that the Israeli government take steps to annex Judea and Samaria, even if it comes with the price of giving citizenship to Arabs residing in these areas. Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Hotovely said that offering citizenship to Palestinian Authority Arabs would be a small price pay for ending the status quo which brings international criticism of Israel, viewed as an “occupier” in Judea and Samaria. (INN 6/24/2013)

Bayit Yehudi head, Economics Minister Naftali Bennett, said Monday that the idea of establishing a Palestinian state has reached a dead-end and should be forsaken. “Never in the history of Israel has so much energy been invested in something so pointless,” Bennett said at a conference on the Jewish settlers in Judea and Samaria and their depiction in the media. (INN 6/17/2013,)

Op-Ed: Annexation: Should Israel Make Her Move Now? by Ron Jager in Israel National News. In recent weeks and months, public leaders and leading journalists affiliated with the settlement movement have called for annexing and incorporating all of Judea and Samaria into Israel. In response to the chaos and weakness of the Arab nations surrounding Israel and the preoccupation of the Western world with the ongoing genocide in Syria, they claim that now is the time to be proactive and go on the offensive and do what will be inevitably done anyway probably under less favorable conditions for Israel. (INN 6/20/2013)

At the same time as these discussions President Bill Clinton visited Israel this week in what I can only call a flashback to 1993. He is lost in the past of his dream of the Oslo accords. Under the headline: Clinton: Israel Must Make Peace or Disappear,Breitbart.com reported: In a speech that will no doubt incentivize Palestinians to continue their campaign of terror and warfare against Israel, former President Bill Clinton told Israel that it would have to make peace with the Palestinians if it wanted to remain Jewish and democratic. (See Palestinian reaction here.)

Even as far back as April 2011, the idea of annexation was gaining momentum as seen in this story about two members of Knesset and a bill proposing annexation.

MK Danon preparing bills to annex West Bank, repeal Oslo Accords; move intended to convince EU to stop UN vote on Palestinian statehood. Ideas about annexing parts of the West Bank that until recently were considered extreme have been gaining traction in the Knesset in recent weeks as the Palestinian Authority continues threatening to declare a state unilaterally in September. National Infrastructures Minister Uzi Landau raised the idea at Israel Beiteinu’s convention in Jerusalem two weeks ago. (Jerusalem Post 4/26/2011)

It is time for Israel to annex Judea and Samaria politically, demographically and most important prophetically.

And I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. Ezekiel 37:22

I wrote this article June 24, 2013, almost three years ago! Then, there was a trickle of interest in annexation. Today, the idea is catching on throughout Israel. Even liberals are now seriously considering the idea. The two-state plan is dead. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
