Jordan invokes 1994 peace treaty with Israel for a say in Kerry’s Jordan Valley security and Jerusalem plans


Debkafile: “While batting back Israel’s complaints over references to anti-Israel boycotts in relation to peacemaking with the Palestinians, US Secretary of State John Kerry has again bumped his head against another piece of Middle East history: The 1994 Israeli-Jordanian peace treaty.

In an exchange of messages in the last few days, debkafile’s Middle East sources reveal that King Abdullah II filed a strong protest with Kerry against the failure of the security-political clauses in his framework accord to address issues involving the Hashemite Kingdom’s political future and security. Above all, he castigated the plan for failing to factor in past treaties concluded between Jordan and Israel with US encouragement.

Israel emphatically objects to withdrawing its troops from this strategic valley on its eastern border or evacuating its settlements there, on the grounds that without its own military manpower on the ground, even the most sophisticated instruments of surveillance would not be proof against terrorist incursions to the West Bank and Israel itself.”

Opinion: Peace in the Middle East is not a job for amateurs. In the coming years, after a false peace (Daniel 9:27) there will be lasting peace in Israel that will never end. That Israel will take its rightful place in the world can be found in the book of Genesis.

God blessed Jacob through Isaac:

May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness—an abundance of grain and new wine. May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed” Genesis 27:28-29.

Here is the prophecy inside the blessing. Jacob, whom God named Israel, was promised the fatness of the earth and that the nations would bow down to him. Never in history have the nations bowed to Israel, but in the millennial reign of Jesus Christ the nation of Israel will be His dwelling place. Jerusalem will be where He will have His sanctuary (Temple) in their midst forevermore (Ezekiel 37:7-11). The nations will make yearly pilgrimages to Israel to see the Lord.

Jacob’s blessing is to be fulfilled at the millennium reign of Christ on earth, and all Jews will dwell there. The re-gathering of the Jews to the land of promise will be completed.

Somebody say amen.
