Arab MKs Demand US Open Separate Consulate, Recognize Capital of ‘State of Palestine’ in Jerusalem


Assessment: The Palestinian Consulate is a stepping stone to the two state solution and a Palestinian state inside Israel – a direct violation of God’s word.

Israeli Arab Knesset members have written a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, demanding the US reopen a separate Consulate for Palestinian Authority citizens in eastern Jerusalem – even before the Knesset approves a budget for the country — and recognize a capital of the “State of Palestine” in the Israeli capital city.

This from lawmakers who, as Israeli legislators, receive their very high salaries and full benefits plus pension from Israeli taxpayers, the vast majority of whom are Jewish.

I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. Joel 3:2 

The members of Israel’s Arab Joint List faction wrote in their letter, “The closure of the historic US consulate went hand in hand with the promotion of an illegal annexation process, supporting the idea of the Greater Israel that will forever control the lives of millions of Palestinians, while downgrading the status of the Palestinian people to an office within the US embassy to Israel . . . Regarding Israelis and Palestinians as equals means having separate diplomatic missions for both peoples, including the recognition of East Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine.”
