Front Page Magazine: “It was recently revealed that the President intends to publicly endorse specific borders and other terms for a Palestinian state, which he hopes will go down in history as the “Obama Framework.” But it would be more truthful to call it what it is — the Palestinian Framework.
The new “Obama Framework” scheme was reported on March 30 by Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post, a journalist whom the Obama administration has often used to leak information it wants to float for trial balloons.
- Palestine’s territory would be based on Israel pre-1967 borders
- Jerusalem would be the capital of both nations.”
- The thorny question of Palestinian refugees would be dispatched with a call for an ‘agreed solution’.”
- A stipulation that Israel would remain the homeland of the Jewish people.”
- A description of security arrangements would glide over the question of exactly how the West Bank and Gaza would be prevented from becoming a launching pad for attacks on Israel.
Opinion: First, it is important to note that the authors Moshe Philips and Benyamin Korn are forgetting that according to the prophets when Israel is restored to the land a second time – it will never again be uprooted, Amos 9:15; Isaiah 11:11.
Second, notice that the so-called Obama Framework has not changed since the president’s speech on May 19, 2011 when the president declared that the prevailing borders before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war — adjusted to some degree to account for Israeli settlements in the West Bank — should be the basis of a deal.
But that doesn’t mean that Biblically ignorant politicians will not try to destroy Israel, but in fact, they are the people God will use to bring about the prophesied wars that will determine Israel’s glorious future.
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.”
Isaiah 2:4 “He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war any more.”
Revelation 20:1-3 “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 snake, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations any more until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.”
