Breaking Israel News: “Three weeks after renaming the Western Wall Al-Buraq, a Muslim holy site, the UN is now considering a demand by the Palestinian Authority to censor an exhibition because it mentions a Jewish connection to Jerusalem.
Palestinian Charge d’Affaires Feda Abdelhady-Nasser wrote to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and General Assembly President Mogens Lykketoft demanding the panel be removed.
The letter said any references “which purport to assert Israeli sovereignty on this land…are legally, politically and morally incorrect and unacceptable.”
Opinion: The possession of Jerusalem, the city of David, was and is the immovable rock spoken of by Zechariah 12:2-3.
Psalm 137:1-4 tells of the horror of the Israeli people watching the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC. So great was their grief that the singers were silent as the exiles were taken to a foreign land.
Psalm 137:5-6 the Psalmist vows to keep Jerusalem in his memory: “If I forget you, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget its skill! If I do not remember you, Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth—If I do not exalt Jerusalem
Above my chief joy.”
And in Psalm 137: 7 the eternal and perpetual enemy of the Jewish people comes into view: “Remember, O Lord, against the sons of Edom The day of Jerusalem, Who said, “Raze it, raze it, To its very foundation!”
What is important to see here is that God has pronounced a future judgment against Edom. When Nebuchadnezzar’s armies came to take the Israelites captive it was the Edomites who gave aid in the destruction of Jerusalem.
“In the day that you stood on the other side—In the day that strangers carried captive his forces, When foreigners entered his gates And cast lots for Jerusalem—Even you were as one of them.” Obadiah 1:11
Obadiah 1:13-14 goes into great detail about how judgment will come because the Edomites stole the Israelites’ possessions, even turning in those who escaped; and Obadiah 1:15 assures Edom that what they have done to God’s people will be done to them.
Obadiah 1:18 gives the final disposition “… no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau, For the Lord has spoken.”
Regardless of what the UN does or doesn’t do, Jerusalem will be the eternal capital of Israel, for the Lord will dwell there, Zechariah 8:3.
