AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PARIS DELEGATES

isaiah-scroll1

To the participants of the January 15th, 2017 Paris Conference on a Palestinian State:

It would be of vital importance to review a document detailing the mind of God on the subject you will be discussing in Paris. The results of a decision contrary to God’s mind on the subject have far-reaching consequences for your own individual nations.

It should be noteworthy to you that the book of Ezekiel was one of the biblical books of the Dead Sea Scrolls found in the Judean Desert in 1946, just about the time the Modern State of Israel was forced to emerge. The decision you are being asked to make in Paris has already been made in the U.N. Security Council in 1947. The two-state solution was ratified, however, five Arab nations said a resounding, “NO!” and launched a war to abort the nation of Israel that was just about to be reborn.

The subject of your gathering in Paris — to divide the Land — is the Prophet Ezekiel’s subject in chapter thirty-six. Let me just outline the important points.

WHAT THE ENEMY HAS SAID ABOUT ISRAEL

“Good! The ancient heights have become our possession” (vs 2).

According to the verses following the above verse, the area of the “ancient heights” are the mountains of Israel. It should be important to note that most of the area that will be on the table in Paris is territory in those very mountains.

It should also be important to take note that God calls the Land, “My Land”.

“…In My burning zeal I speak against the rest of the nations and all of Edom (present day Jordan) who took MY LAND as their own possession with whole hearted rejoicing and utter contempt…” (vs 5).

The continuing siege against Israel since its inception in 1948 is now coming to the Valley of Decision. The Prophet Joel spoke sobering words — terrifying words — about you who are being called to Paris, the new Valley of Decision.

“I will gather all the nations and take them to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. I will enter into judgment with them there because of My people, My inheritance Israel. The nations have scattered the Israelites in foreign countries and divided up MY LAND” (Joel 3:2).

God concludes this very important lesson in verse 15:

“I will no longer allow the insults of the nations to be heard against you, and you will not have to endure the reproach of the peoples anymore…” (vs 15).

My advise to you is to decline participation in the conference in Paris. Should you imagine you should be there, I strongly urge that you cast your vote against dividing God’s Land, and let your voice be strongly heard . The nation you represent will bear the consequences of your vote — either for the bad, or for the good.

IS A MAJOR WAR LOOMING IN THE MIDDLE EAST AGAIN?

Prayer at the wall (Ron Cantrell)

Hebrew University, Mount Scopus is now considered illegal territory under the UN resolution.

It is my hope to clarify the ‘hard to decipher’ political situation we face immediately.

In a dastardly move the day before Christmas Eve and Hanukkah, the United Nations moved the world to the brink of war. The war question is not hypothetical.

Knowing what was in the making, just prior to the U.N. Security Council meeting on December 23, 2016, Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly contacted key national leaders, in emergency phone conversations, saying that if resolution 2334 was passed, declaring Israeli settlements illegal, it was “a declaration of war.” A spokesman for Netanyahu claimed to have “ironclad evidence” that the Obama administration had plotted behind the scenes to promote the UN resolution. Israel has said it will present evidence against the Obama administration to the incoming Trump team.

New Zealand co-sponsored the text of the resolution which was prepared by Egypt in co-operation with the Palestinians. Egypt was persuaded, by an angry Donald Trump, to withdraw the proposal, however, New Zealand snuck it in opaquely and under “ Urgency” the next day in the final meeting of the year to keep it from happening under the incoming Trump administration. Trump would have vetoed on America’s behalf and undoubtedly de-funded the U.N.

Netanyahu contacted leaders stressing that they refuse to vote for the resolution. The resolution passed the Security Council in a 14-0 vote with our very own United States abstaining instead of vetoing.
Israel has announced that business with the embassies of the countries who voted for the U.N. proposal: — Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, Ukraine, Angola, Egypt, Uruguay, Spain, Senegal and New Zealand — will be suspended. Netanyahu will not meet with the foreign ministers of those countries and their ambassadors will not be received at Israel’s Foreign Ministry, the officials added.

PHASE TWO – PARIS; JANUARY 15, 2017

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has lambasted the upcoming Middle East peace conference in Paris, labeling it a “scheme” designed to hurt Israel’s reputation and likening it to the infamous trial of French Jewish officer Alfred Dreyfus.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has lambasted the upcoming Middle East peace conference in Paris, labeling it a “scheme” designed to hurt Israel’s reputation and likening it to the infamous trial of French Jewish officer Alfred Dreyfus.

An epic meeting of biblical proportions (see Ezekiel below) of the leaders of 70 nations is scheduled for January 15 in Paris to determine the future of a two state solution, creating a Palestinian State for the first time in history (by the way, there never was a Palestine [refer to my abridged time-line below). Neither Netanyahu, nor Abbas are invited to the meeting – they will be briefed after the fact by the French President in a second Paris meeting.

UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was one of the most significant events in decades. It made all Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria, and in east Jerusalem, illegal; it set the 1967 ceasefire lines as the border between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and it granted every single inch of East Jerusalem to the Palestinians. It is important to know that before the 1967 Six Day War, the entire Old City of Jerusalem was under Jordanian control, viewed by Jordan as ‘Greater Jordan.’ However, the resolution stopped short of giving official UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian State, and that is why the January 15 conference is so significant.

Shortly after the resolution passed, U.S. President-elect Donald Trump tweeted, “as to the UN, things will be different after Jan. 20.” Later he added: “We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, January 20 is fast approaching!”.

As renowned constitutional and criminal lawyer and Harvard scholar, Alan Dershowitz notes, according to the resolution, “It is now illegal for Jews to pray at the Western Wall, live in certain Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem or attend Hebrew University on Mt. Scopus.” It is a further denial of the Jewish connection to its holiest site. It also entrenches BDS – the isolation and boycott of Israel. It enshrines a brand new principal of international law – that the victor in a defensive war (in this case it was against Jordan since there was in reality no Palestine) has no right or claim to the land it acquires and must hand it back – but here Israel would have to hand it back to Jordan and not Palestinians (the Palestinians at the time of the ’67 war had no governing body nor did they seek autonomy anywhere other than in Jordan).

If you supported Resolution 2334 before, do you still support it now that you know the ramifications?

EZEKIEL 36

Ezekiel chapter 36 would be a good thing to send delegates to the Paris conference. If taken seriously it could turn nations 180 degrees in their intentions toward God’s land.

“Ah ha! The ancient heights have become our possession,…”

“The Lord God says: Look, I speak in My burning zeal. Because you (speaking to Israel) have endured the insults of the nations, I swear that the nations around you will endure their own insults.”

WHERE DID THE TERM “PALESTINE” COME FROM?

A Jordanian postage stamp dated January 13, 1964 shows Jordan (pink area) extending all the way past the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River and the Dead Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. There is no mention of Palestine at the Arab Summit Conference that this stamp memorializes. Jordan still refers to Jerusalem as, The Western Heights (of Jordan).

Here is truth: There was no Palestinian territory occupied since 1967. None. There never has been. In 1964, Yassir Arafat grabbed onto the British term Palestine and ran with it.

PARIS AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN – THERE IS NO PALESTINE

In 1911 Abd al-Hadi, was a founding member of the Paris-based underground al-Fatat (“the Young Arab Society”) nationalist society, which was devoted to Arab independence and unity. He was among the organizers of the Arab Congress of 1913 in Paris and served as private secretary of Faisal I of Iraq at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919. Abd al-Hadi was later an adviser to Amir Abdullah in Jordan and an Arab leader in Jerusalem. Abd al-Hadi addressed the British Peel Commission in 1936 declaring, “There is no such country as Palestine. Palestine is a term the Zionists invented. Even your Bibles that label maps Palestine are in error. Our country was for centuries part of Syria.”

BLACK SEPTEMBER – JORDAN

In September of 1970, Yassir Arafat declared Palestinian Statehood. Where? Not in Israel but in Jordan. His message to the Hashemite King of Jordan was that the land belonged to the Palestinians not a him, a displaced Saudi prince. King Hussein massacred Palestinians in retaliation for Arafat’s declaration. The time came to be known as “Black September” from where the terrorists who murdered the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics took their name.

Our present political situation has been in the making for a very long time. The comfortable living conditions of the Western world are good however, The downside is that they are not forced to remember history or to take a look at history.

This sad fact has been used by the enemies of Israel and the west. Until just recently, the BBC – The British Broadcasting Company has created its own Middle East reality built on astonishing boldfaced lies.

Somewhere along the way, the British developed a favoritism for the Muslim world. Most likely a product of Sir Lawrence of Arabia. With the help of five Muslim nations he defeated the Ottoman Empire and drove the turks out of what is now the Holy Land (Israel). Lawrence of Arabia promised to those five Muslim nations to create a state for each of their royal princes at the end of the war. The league of Nations was formed at that time and a map was rolled out on the table and carving the entire Middle East into these states commenced.

Not every British citizen was anti-Jewish and pro Arab. Simultaneously there was a program to deliver to the Jewish people a homeland in the Holy Land.

A quick look at the process

The defeat of the Turkish Ottoman Empire – 1914: 

The Great Arab Revolt began on June 5, 1916 from where the famous Lawrence
of Arabia gained his renown. The victory was won in short order. The aim was
securing independence from the ruling Ottoman Turks  and creating a single
unified Arab state spanning from Aleppo in Syria to Aden in Yemen. Lawrence of
Arabia promised kingdoms to five Saudi Princes for their aid.

1920 – League of Nations: 

League of Nations mandates were established in disputed territories so that residents could decide which country they would join. The mandate we are interested in here applied to parts of the old Ottoman Empire which of course included much of the Middle East.

1920 – White paper: 

The British White Paper of 1922, also known as the Churchill White Paper was a document drafted by the British Colonial Secretary, Winston Churchill with the help of Sir Herbert Samuel and was issued on June 3, 1922 with the purpose of clarifying  the Balfour Declaration for the Jewish homeland and how the British viewed it.

The British mandate over the Middle East: 

The British Mandate for Palestine’s objective of the League of Nations Mandate system was to administer parts of the defunct Ottoman Empire, which had been in control of the Middle East since the 16th century,
“until such time as they are able to stand alone.”

The Saudi Hashemite prince threatens war against Britain if they don’t give him a state.

Problems arise when France rejects the League of Nations intent to carve Lebanon into one of the new nations promised the Saudi princes. Jordan is created in answer to that threat dividing the Jewish homeland in half at the Jordan River. (This is already the two state solution). Actually, at that time, everyone was accepting of this solution in spite of Israel losing more than half their homeland allotment.

The United Nations votes in favor of a two state solution – 1947.

In an historic meeting of the United Nations Security Council, the promised homeland for the Jews was divided a third time giving more land to the Arabs. Israel had to accept the fact, however, the five nationssurrounding Israel shouted a resounding “NO!” and declared war.

Israel is forced to declare statehood – 1948.

Israel was forced to unilaterally declare Statehood and in the ensuing war, Israel survives but loses another 1/3 of its land to Jordan. In the ensuing years the entire Old City of Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Golan Heights and the Sinai were lost to Jordan and Egypt.

Israel is attacked on all borders – 1967.

Egypt’s Abdel Nasser moved troops toward the Israeli border in a planned strike against the nation. Israel launched  pre-emptive strikes taking out Egypt’s entire air force before they could leave the runways. Nasser radioed Syria and claiming a resounding defeat of Israel and called those nations to take advantage of the situation and attack Israel. Israeli counterattacks resulted in the seizure of East Jerusalem, the entire Old City, the West Bank from the Jordanians and the Golan Heights from Syria.

Israel is attacked by Egypt – 1973.

On the most holy day of the Jewish calendar: Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement when all communications are shut down, Egypt attacks Israel. Knowing how long it would take for Israel’s Defense Forces to muster themselves, Egypt believed they could win another war against Israel. Once again Egypt was trounced and lost the entire Sinai Peninsula to Israel until Israel returned the Sinai to Egypt under pressure from Western sources for a peace that has yet to materialize.

SECRETARY OF STATE: KERRY DOES IT AGAIN

The following thanks to a blogger:

If what an Egyptian newspaper is claiming is true, then there may very well be an international conspiracy at work against Israel. According to a transcript published by the Al-Youm Al-Sabea newspaper, John Kerry and U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice met with Palestinian officials in early December and presented Kerry’s plan to them at that time… 

It has been reported that: 

In a meeting in early December with top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, US Secretary of State John Kerry told the Palestinians that the US was prepared to cooperate with the Palestinians at the Security council, Israel’s Channel 1 TV said, quoting the Egyptian Al-Youm Al-Sabea newspaper.
Also present at the meeting were US National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and Majed Faraj, director of the Palestinian Authority’s General Intelligence Service.Kerry is quoted as saying that he could present his ideas for a final status solution if the Palestinians pledge they will support the proposed framework. The US officials advised the Palestinians to travel to Riyadh to present the plan to Saudi leaders.The Obama administration is denying all of this of course. But if it is true, then the betrayal of Israel by Obama is much deeper than any of us realized.With less than a month to go in his presidency, Barack Obama has decided to launch an all-out attack on Israel. Once Resolution 2334 passed and the uproar against it was limited, that emboldened the Obama administration to go for broke.

Now it looks like they actually could try to get a Palestinian state created before he leaves office on January 20th, and if that happens it will be absolutely catastrophic for America.

You see, the truth is that we have been warned for many years that our land will be divided after the land of Israel is officially divided into two states. Many of us have been watching for the creation of a Palestinian state for a very long time, and now we may be right on the verge of it happening.

When Donald Trump takes office he would not be able to reverse the creation of a Palestinian state, but one thing that he could do would be to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

Jordan warned the USA just today that if Trump moves the embassy to Jerusalem it will be a ‘red line’ for them.

If that happens, the Palestinians also are promising to throw a massive temper tantrum…

When asked how the Palestinians would react if Trump carried out his promise to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, Erekat reportedly said the Palestine Liberation Organization would rescind its recognition of Israel and ask Arab states to expel their US envoys.

Erekat made precisely that threat in a December 19 conference call organized by the Wilson Center policy forum. He said he would immediately resign as the chief Palestinian negotiator, and that “the PLO will revoke its recognition of Israel” as well as all previously signed agreements with Israel.

Furthermore, said Erekat, all American embassies in the Arab world would be forced to close — not necessarily because Arab leaderships would want to close them, but because the infuriated public in the Arab world would not “allow” for the embassies to continue to operate.

Ultimately, everything that is happening now is setting the stage for the biggest war in the Middle East that we have ever seen.

So instead of this “peace process” being the solution, it is actually going to cause the Middle East to explode in violence.
