The Algemeiner: “You know, they (Palestinians) grow up as young children hating, hating, hating Israel. I think the deal can be made. But we got to be smart and we got to use our best people; gotta use me, but we got to use our best people. And I know the best people.
Now, with that being said, some of the smartest people I know from Israel say ‘We’d love to make the deal.’ — you know, I’ve never met a person from Israel that didn’t want to make the deal. But it is just a very hard deal to make because it’s years of — of whatever. But I’d love to be able to make that deal.”
Opinion: The deal that Mr. Trump would love to make would be another two-state solution. In the years leading up to Israel’s statehood in 1948, the UN did create two states side by side: Israel for Jews and Jordan for Arabs.
But since no remembers or cares about that, another deal will need to be made to fulfill prophecy. The question is by whom?
“Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”
Daniel 9:27 is all about that deal except Daniel called it a covenant. The many is considered to mean Israel and her neighbors, and one week (Hebrew, shabua) is 7 years.

Animal sacrifice must have previously started. And since sacrifices and offerings can only be done in a temple, the Jews will have received permission to build the prophesied third temple, from he, Antichrist.
The wing of Abominations is a reference to a previous abomination of desolation that took place in 165 BC when Antiochus Epiphanes (mad man) slaughtered a pig in the Holy of Holies, which led to cleansing of the temple, and the feast of Hanukah.
So Mr. Trump may be right, if …
