Transcript: Jimmy and Dave discuss how the Israeli/Palestinian conflict relates to the 4000 year old conflict between Esau and Jacob that will not be resolved until the return of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem …
There is a key region, of our world, which all Prophecy students pay close attention to, almost on a daily basis, that’s the Middle East region. That’s why Jimmy DeYoung brings Dave Dolan to the Broadcast Table, weekly here on PTIB, for Dave’s Middle East News Up-date. Dave has been a journalist in the Middle East for over 35 years and can give us very important information on the events happening in the ME.
JD: The Middle East Quartet they are now discussing and reviving the Israeli-Palestinian talks. David tell everybody what are the chances for them being able to bring the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table.
DD: Well called the quartet because four powers that basically were very involved in the peace process over many many years and they had some success of having the parties together. But again Jimmy this just strikes most Israelis as ridiculous all of this talk right now because there’s absolutely been no change on the Palestinian street. Hamas, the radical movement still controlling the Gaza strip and the PLO controlling Judea and Samaria for the most part but they are internally divided. Israel doesn’t have a firm government so neither side is ready to sit down and negotiate peace. It just seems like a non starter to most Israelis and again they’re preoccupied with Iran and the possibility of war with that power much more than they are worried about the Palestinians at present.
DD: Well again Jimmy there’s just no ground reason by what the situation is actually in the Palestinian territories and in Israel to think this is the time to sit down and negotiate a peace accord. When Prime Minister Netanyahu was stronger they still weren’t able to succeed in that and that’s basically because the Palestinians want to see Israel destroyed or at least a lot of them do. They see the possibility of that happening happening with Iran and its allies gearing up for war. So we’re waiting for war not really for peace at this time. It’s sad to say that but that is the truth.
JD: David Dolan explaining why the Israelis are saying this is not the time for a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
