Arutz Sheva: “Opposition head and Zionist Union chairperson MK Yitzhak Herzog took part on Monday morning in Arutz Sheva‘s Jerusalem Conference, where he presented his “separation plan” from the Palestinian Arabs involving a unilateral division of Israel.
Herzog began by noting on the ideological difference between himself and most of the largely national religious crowd, saying, “it is permissible to argue and everything must be done in the appropriate atmosphere.”
“Yesterday the Labor party made a most significant decision, unanimously of course,” said Herzog. “As long as (Prime Minister Binyamin) Netanyahu and Abu Mazen (Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas – ed.) remain in power it is impossible to reach a two-state solution.”
Opinion: Yitzhak Herzog has a lot of company, in fact I cannot think of a world leader who doesn’t think that Israel should divide Jerusalem and hand the Temple Mount over to Arab hands.
I have typed hundreds of posts on the prophetic ramifications of such a move. Dividing the land is a violation of the foundational Covenant of the Old Testament made to Abraham (Genesis chapter 12-17).
Genesis 13:15: “For all the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your seed for ever.”
That one sentence should be enough, but God didn’t stop there:
Genesis 17:7-8: “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
Judgment for violation of the covenant is foretold: “For behold, in those days and at that time, When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:1-2
And at that time appears to be at hand.
