France, Germany, Italy, UK & US slam Israeli decision to build in Judea and Samaria


The Foreign Ministers of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States issued a joint statement condemning the decision of Israel’s political-security cabinet to authorize the construction of 9,000 new housing units in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

“We – the Foreign Ministers of France, Germany and Italy, the Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom, and the Secretary of State of the United States – are deeply troubled by the Israeli government’s announcement that it is advancing nearly 10,000 settlement units and intends to begin a process to normalize nine outposts that were previously deemed illegal under Israeli law. We strongly oppose these unilateral actions which will only serve to exacerbate tensions between Israelis and Palestinians and undermine efforts to achieve a negotiated two-state solution,” the foreign ministers said in their joint statement.

“We continue to support a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace in the Middle East, which must be achieved through direct negotiations between the parties. Israelis and Palestinians both deserve to live in peace, with equal measures of freedom, security, and prosperity. We reaffirm our commitment to helping Israelis and Palestinians fulfill the vision of an Israel fully integrated into the Middle East living alongside a sovereign, viable Palestinian state. We continue to closely monitor developments on the ground which impact the viability of the two-state solution and stability in the region at large,” they said. Read More …

Opinion: It never stops. Secular progressive Gentiles want to control land God gave to Jacob:

“And God said to him, “Your name is Jacob; your name shall not be called Jacob anymore, but Israel shall be your name.” So He called his name Israel. 11 Also God said to him: “I am God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body. 12 The land which I gave Abraham and Isaac I give to you; and to your descendants after you I give this land.” Genesis 35:12-2

I can not find any mention of Esau’s descendants, today’s Palestinian people, and yet the same secular progressives of the west actually think they can create a Palestinian state along side Israel. They will pay a big price for their error:

“For behold, in those days and at that time, When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, 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

While I have little hope that world leaders will study the Scriptures to understand God’s eternal plan for Israel, I will keep on posting the historic facts as long as foolish men continue advancing the two state solution.

From our post on March 18, 2021 here:

Israel’s victorious Six Day War of 1967 provided the nation with land previously mandated to it by the 1917 Balfour Declaration. From 1917 to 1947, Britain repeatedly made concessions to the Arabs handing them control of the West Bank (Temple Mount), the Sinai, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights.

In the Six Day War, Israel regained these natural God-made buffers which protect the Jewish state from annihilation. Since then, the UN has demanded that Israel give them back, i.e. “the 1967 borders”.

In the Six Day War, Israel regained these natural God-made buffers which protect the Jewish state from annihilation. Since then, the UN has demanded that Israel give them back, i.e. “the 1967 borders”.

In exchange for peace that never came, Israel gave back control of the Temple Mount, the Sinai, and the Gaza Strip and parts of Judea and Samaria but has refused to hand over the Golan Heights, the most strategic buffer that was deemed Israeli territory by President Donald Trump.

Judea and Samaria, Israel’s heartland, including the City of David and the Temple Mount, will be the center of attention for the whole world in the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ.
