With ‘classic anti-Semitism,’ Abbas ending career the way he started


The Times of Israel: In a long-winded speech in Ramallah in front of hundreds at a rare session of the Palestinian National Council, the 82-year-old PA leader alleged that the Holocaust was not caused by anti-Semitism, but rather by the Jews’ “social behavior, [charging] interest, and financial matters.”

In his speech, Abbas also referred to the 1933 “haavara” agreement between the early Zionist leadership, the Anglo-Palestine Bank (today Bank Leumi), German Zionist leaders, and Nazi Germany to permit German Jews to emigrate to the British Mandate of Palestine with some of their assets. With the deal, claimed Abbas, Adolf Hitler, whose Nazi regime was responsible for the murder of six million Jews in the Holocaust, facilitated the immigration of Jews to Israel.

The PA leader further cited Arthur Koestler’s highly contested “The Thirteenth Tribe,” which asserts Ashkenazi Jews are descended from Khazars, to argue that Jews have no historical ties to Israel, and reiterated his claim the Jewish state was founded as a European colonial project and “those who sought a Jewish state weren’t Jews.” more …

Opinion: Abbas has it conveniently wrong. In our book Antichrist the Search For Amalek, we found that Khazars (Chazars) are Edomites who settled in what is today Turkey.

“The fifth century BC was known for the Greco-Persian wars that continued all the way to the death of Alexander in 323 BC. These wars were a perfect fit for the mercenary Edomites, who were known as fierce swordwielding warriors.

They were conscripted and recruited into these armies, spreading Esau’s blood from Israel east to Persia (Iran) and north to Lebanon, Syria, Turkey (Chazars), and Russia/Ukraine (Scythians)”.

Obadiah 1:1-8 records that Edomites, descendants of Esau, were present in Judea in 586 BC, the time of the destruction of the first temple and helped the Babylonians march the Jews to Babylon for 70 years.

Upon their return, many of the Jews married into the surrounding pagan tribes causing an uproar as recorded in Ezra 9:1-2.

Fast forward to AD 70, when the Romans destroyed the second temple and the Jews were scattered to the four corners of the world as Moses prophesied in Deuteronomy 28:64:

“Then the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods, which neither you nor your fathers have known—wood and stone.” Deuteronomy 28:64

The descendants of Esau had remained in Judea and became manifest in the teachers of Jewish law called Pharisees.

Edomites were of mixed Jewish and Gentile blood from the time their forefather married Hittite wives and concubines that were a ‘grief of mind to his father Isaac’, Genesis 26:45.

Therefore, the scattering of the Jews to the four corners of the world after the destruction of the temple in AD 70 is fulfilled prophecy. Europe then is included, knocking out the Edomite Abbas’ assertion that the Ashkenazi Jews are not real Jews.

Zechariah 12:10 helps clear up the dilemma of who are the real descendants of Abraham Isaac and Jacob.

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn”.

The scene is near the end of the tribulation. The Jews had been called home to Jerusalem seven years earlier (Ez. 39:28) and were now hiding in the mountains in accordance with Jesus’ warning in in Matthew 24:15-16 for protection from Antichrist.

Only the House of David and the commoners of Jerusalem who are the descendants of Jacob will head Jesus’ words.
