Jewish Press: The PA announced its decision to end compliance with the Oslo Accords and will begin to express this by issuing building permits allowing Arabs to build illegally in Israel-controlled areas. The European Union has already taken sides, supporting illegal Arab construction even when it is used as infrastructure for terrorism.
Two weeks ago, Israel was criticized for demolishing illegally built Arab structure, mostly uninhabited, in an Arab neighborhood in the eastern section of Jerusalem. The demolition came after a long court battle in which Israel claimed the buildings were constructed adjacent to the security barrier and could be used as bases to launch terrorist attacks. A 2011 military order bans any construction adjacent to the barrier.
The Palestinian Authority issued permits for the construction of the buildings and protested the demolition. Israel’s supreme court rejected the Palestinians’ final appeal, clearing the way for the demolitions.
Just days later, Israel’s cabinet approved 715 building permits to Palestinians in Israeli-controlled Area C of the West Bank, alongside 6,000 such licenses for homes in neighboring settlements. more …
Opinion: “Even though Edom has said, “We have been impoverished,
But we will return and build the desolate places …”
Prophecy in fulfillment. Esau’s descendants returned to Judea in 586 BC and helped the Babylonian army destroy Solomon’s temple and march the Jews off to Babylon for 70 years. Edom as represented in Psalm 83:6 is the eternal enemy of Jacob.
And Edom is desperate. They must take back the lost birthright now, while a Biblically dead world that includes members of the US House of Representatives, support the Arab attempt to take the land.
Israel controlled Area C is the latest deception:
Jewish Press July 28, 2019 (here) “The process is simple: First, they build illegal structures in an area in which they have a particular interest, challenging the Israeli enforcement authorities. This is followed by extensive use of legal means to prevent or delay demolition, as they employ the media and public opinion to portray the demolition efforts as a violation of human rights. Finally, the illegal construction is legitimized by means of civic planning processes.
The campaign is led by international entities and NGOs, and is supported by a great deal of money—hundreds of millions—flowing in from these sources:
- The Society of St. Yves—Catholic Center for Human Rights
- The E.U. and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
- The U.N. Community Resilience and Development Program (CRDP),
- The British Department for International Development (DFID),
- The government of France, as well as many other governments and organizations.
“…They may build, but I will throw down; They shall be called the Territory of Wickedness, And the people against whom the Lord will have indignation forever.” Malachi 1:4
My hope is that it is not President Trump’s deal of the century causing the land grab. It is God’s battle and He will not be mocked (Galatians 6:7).
