Arutz Sheva: “Support for the terrorist organization Hamas has skyrocketed in Judea, Samaria and Gaza according to a new poll, after Hamas “skyrocketed” Israel with a massive missile barrage and terror war in Operation Protective Edge.
A full 61% of Arab residents of Judea, Samaria and Gaza would pick Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh for unity government president if elections were held today, according to the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research poll reported Tuesday by Associated Press (AP).
By contrast, Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas was found to have dropped sharply to a mere 32% in support.
Opinion: Overall popularity ratings since the ceasefire in West Bank and Gaza:
Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh: the West Bank and Gaza = 61%
Mahmoud Abbas: West Bank and Gaza = 32%
Prime Minister Netanyahu: 82% during the war, 32% after the war
So, after all the mayhem and bloodshed, the most popular leader in Israel is head of the terror group Hamas; yet progressive left politicians continue to promote the two-state solution as a means for peace. The war with Hamas cannot end until all terror groups are obliterated. According to Bible prophecy, that will not completely happen until the return of Jesus Christ (Isaiah 63:1-3).
In an email discussion with a close friend yesterday named Jon, who happens to be Jewish, I proposed the following explanation to the Palestinian situation:
It began in Genesis 25:23 “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”
It got deadly in Genesis 27:41 “Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob.”
It will have a temporary solution Daniel 9:29 “He (Antichrist) will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven’ (7 years). In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”
It will have a permanent solution Zechariah 14:4 “On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.”
Israel will live in peace Revelation 20:1-2 “And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.”
