Jewish Press, Rotem Nimkovsky: UN General Assembly resolution 181 of 1947 called for the partition of the British Mandate in Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab entities. The Jewish leadership accepted the resolution. The Arab countries rejected it, which is their right. What they had no right to, was to declare war on the Jewish population in the area.
The armies of seven Arab countries set out to destroy the Jewish state, which they outnumbered a hundred to one. They also persecuted the Jewish citizens who lived in their own countries for hundreds of years, forcing them to leave and take refuge in the newly created State of Israel.
The Arab nations, together with the Arab population in the British Mandate area, sought to annihilate the Jews in the region and failed. The only catastrophe for them in this scenario was that they lost the war. more …
Opinion: It’s so simple. In 1947, a two state solution was accepted by the Jews and refused by the Arabs. But that was not the first or last time it would be offered.
In 1922, Britain gave into Arab demands and lopped off 78% of the British mandate, creating the first two-state solution:
In fact, the Arabs could have had their own state in Israel at any time, but it was never about two states for two peoples, it was always about pushing Jacob out of the land for good, and making Israel an Arab state for Esau.
Few would dispute who the descendants of Jacob are: they are the Jewish people. Obadiah 1:6, however, warns us that the descendants of Esau are deceptive and will need to be searched out: they are the Arab Palestinians.
The enmity between the descendants of the twin brothers is over 3500 years old:
“Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob.”
Right there, your Honor, are exhibits A thru Z. Esau’s descendants are still trying to kill Jacob’s descendants and only Jesus Himself can and will solve it (Isaiah 63:1-3; Zechariah 12:10; Revelation 19:13:16).
