Jewish Insider: U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides joined Americans for Peace Now (APN) in a webinar on Tuesday to discuss his new job and what his vision is for the region. “I’m center-left,” he said. “I’m left generally, but I put in the ‘center’ just to make myself feel better.”
Nides made waves soon after he arrived in Israel when he announced that he would not visit the “settlements” out of fear of offending anyone. More specifically, he said, “the idea of settlement growth, which infuriates me, when they do things that just infuriate the situation both in east Jerusalem and the West Bank.”
“He who deals deceitfully shall not live in my house; he who speaks untruth shall not stand before my eyes.” Psalms 101:7 (The Israel BibleTM)
“We can’t do stupid things that impede us for a two-state solution. We can’t have the Israelis doing settlement growth in east[ern] Jerusalem or the West Bank,” he added, emphasizing that he “cares deeply about the country and the people” and just wants “to do the right thing.”
He continued, saying he doesn’t want to “create anger and disrespect for anyone if I can avoid it, which means I’ll meet with anyone at any point.” Read More …
Opinion: Thomas Nides, a former deputy secretary of state in the Obama administration and current vice chairman of Morgan Stanley was born to Jewish parents. His desire for a two-state solution sounds very similar to other secular progressives who advocate for dividing God’s land.
Genesis 17:7-8: And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. 8 Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
I’m pretty sure that Thomas Nides knows that his views on Jerusalem are shared by the most ant-Semitic secular people on earth:
Article: Asked about the political horizon, Nides seemed to suggest Israel should share its capital, Jerusalem, with the Palestinians. “I’ve been clear about this, and [Biden’s] been clear about this: He is fully and completely supportive of a two-state solution with a divided … capital,” he said.
I’m also pretty sure that Nides does not know that God’s land is not to be divided:
Joel 3:2: 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.
And I’m pretty sure Thomas Nides knows that a harmless sounding ‘Palestinian mission’ or consulate in east Jerusalem will be a de facto Palestinian capital where the Temple Mount has been for 3000 years:
Article: Nides, discussed the hot-button topic of reopening the U.S. mission for Palestinians in central Jerusalem, which Israel is firmly against. “We want to open it,” said Nides. “Both the Israelis and Palestinians have made way too big a deal of this.”
It’s the same old story. Secular Jews have no interest in what the Jewish Scriptures say about the land of promise being strictly for the Jews. They have no idea that when Jesus Christ returns for 1000 years of peace (Revelation 20:1-2), He will reign from that same Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and none of the enemies of God’s people will be there.
That matter will be settled in the 7-year tribulation.
