Israel asks US: What is real motive behind Sisi-sponsored Palestinian talks?


Debkafile: Israel was startled by the Egyptian president’s comment that the Palestinian reconciliation process he is brokering would lead to peace with Israel.

Abdel Fatteh El-Sisi put it this way in an interview on Sunday, Oct. 8: “The Egyptian moves aimed at helping the Palestinian brothers to start a new stage of unity of the Palestinian ranks would pave the way for a just peace between Palestine and Israel.” He defined his goal as being:

“The establishment of an independent Palestinian state to meet the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for a secure, stable and prosperous life.” more …

Opinion: Except that is not what the Egyptian plan is about and Abdel Fatteh El-Sisi knows it. Hiding under the tired and worn out two-state solution umbrella is as dishonest as it is unworkable.

It’s Jerusalem, the burdensome stone (Zechariah 12:3), that men trip over every time:

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:3

In that day refers to a span of time during which God personally intervenes in history,  to accomplish some specific aspect of His plan.

The next phrase: ‘will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people’ could refer to now (pre-Psalm 83/Gog Magog) as one peace plan after another falls on the scrap heap of history over Jerusalem.

It is that last part of the verse: ‘though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it’, that clearly jumps to the war (Armageddon at the end of the tribulation):

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near.Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her.”  Luke 21:20
