Jewish Press: Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said on Wednesday that his people have been the victims of a conspiracy that started 100 years ago, “since the infamous Balfour Declaration,” and suggested the latest episode in this conspiracy is President Donald Trump’s “sinful declaration in which he alleged that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, defying with this the feelings and beliefs of hundreds of millions of Muslims and Christians and violating international law and resolutions on this matter.”
But it was journalist Khaled Abu Toameh that caught the most important line of Abbas’s speech when he admitted:
“Palestinians and Jordanians are one people in two states – Jordan and Palestine. We won’t accept the idea of the transformation of Jordan into a Palestinian homeland.” more …
Opinion: And there you go. The head Edomite knows, as did his predecessor Yasser Arafat, that Jordan was carved out of the land designated as a home for Jewish people to make a home for Arab people, except of course he can’t say the name Israel, because that would be like saying Jacob, Genesis 35:10.
The blood feud has never been about two states for two people living side by side in peace and security, since two states for two peoples (Israel and Jordan) has been in existence since 1922 …
… and there has not been 1 day of peace or security, because the enmity that Esau’s blood descendants have for Jacob’s blood descendants is so old that the details have been conveniently forgotten by most everyone, except for Jesus Himself. I will come back to that in a minute.
The 1922 two state solution:
- 1917: Britain signed the Balfour Declaration that committed Britain to establish a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine.
- 1919: World War I ends – the Ottoman Empire, who sided with Germany in the war, collapses.
- 1922: The League of Nations awards Britain mandates over Palestine and Iraq. Britain awards the entire land of Palestine (both sides of the Jordan River) to the Jewish people.
- Britain bowed to pressure from the displaced Arab peoples and cut out 32,460 sq. miles, or 78% of the original land grant, to establish a home for the Arab peoples (two state solution) in Jordan.
How it began:
Two nations are in your womb (Genesis 25:23). God intended for Jacob, the younger twin, to receive the land of the covenant (Genesis 17:7-8) He made with his grandfather Abraham, and his father Isaac.
Esau was told he would live away from the covenant land and would live by his sword (Genesis 27:29-30 ). Nowhere in the Bible has any man been treated so harshly by God (Malachi 1:2-3 NIV) (Romans 9:13-16) as Esau.
No nation or religion claims Esau as their patriarch, but he is present in the West Bank today.
How it will end:
Before the triumphant return of Jesus, Isaiah 63:1-3 prophecies a man coming towards him with His robe stained red:
“Who is this who comes from Edom,
With dyed garments from Bozrah,
This One who is glorious in His apparel,
Traveling in the greatness of His strength?
I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.”
2 Why is Your apparel red,
And Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?
3 “I have trodden the winepress alone,
And from the peoples no one was with Me.
For I have trodden them in My anger,
And trampled them in My fury;
Their blood is sprinkled upon My garments,
And I have stained all My robes.”
