European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini
JPost: The European Union has rejected the idea of Israeli sovereignty in the West Bank, which would create chaos and violence in the Middle East, its foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday.
Such a move would destroy the possibility of a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Mogherini said, adding that settlement construction was already making the idea of two-states impossible.
“If it is not going to be a two-state solution, then it is not going to be a solution,” Mogherini said. more …
Opinion: Will anything be enough to satisfy Abbas or the Israel-hating EU? How interesting that Daniel 9:26 prophesied that the final Antichrist would come from revived Rome which bears a strong resemblance to the European Union.
Keep in mind that post WWI:
1922: Israel was granted (League of Nations) both sides of the Jordan River, totaling 43,075 square miles. A few months later, Britain, under pressure, altered the Balfour Declaration and took back 32,460 square miles, or 78 percent of the original land grant creating Jordan as a home for Arab people.
1947: Israel’s land grant had been further reduced to 5,560 square miles, or 13 percent of the original land grant. Israel was pushed to the west side of the Jordan River. That same year, the Arabs were offered a state inside Israel and turned it down.
Had the Arabs accepted the offer they would have controlled Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and East Jerusalem (temple mount) which was more land than they even demanded.
There is only one way to fully understand this blood feud and that is in God’s word, the Bible. It was written that the twins in Rebekah’s womb were two nations (Genesis 25:23). It was written that the older twin would serve the younger, creating instant animosity. It was written that the older twin would so disdain his birthright that he would sell it for a bowl of soup (Genesis 25:20-34). It was written that the older twin would beg to have the blessing reversed (Genesis 27:30-32), and it was written that in despair the older twin would vow to kill his brother (Genesis 27:41).
Then Esau took his wives from the Hittite tribes (Genesis 26;34-35) in violation of God’s law. The offspring inherited the hatred their grandfather had toward Jacob with such intensity, that there would be no way to satisfy it without total annihilation.
The spirit of Antichrist was/is in the world (1 John 4:3), and it manifested itself in maniacal descendants of Esau whose goal it was be to destroy the Christ, who was to come through the descendants of Jacob (Genesis 49:10).
Malachi, the final prophet of the Old Testament, foretold that in the last days the descendants of Esau would return (Malachi 1:4) to the land to try to reverse Jacob’s blessing and take back the land.
We are here to witness the prophecy with our own eyes, but most refuse to see.
