JPost: “The United States harshly condemned Israeli legislative attempts to authorize some 2,000 illegal settler homes on private Palestinian property on Monday.
“We’re deeply concerned,” said Elizabeth Trudeau, the US State Department’s Director for Press Operations.”
Opinion: Settlements like Amona and Shiloh and dozens of others are necessary for several reasons:
The Jews are being called home to escape the terrible conflicts of the end times creating a massive need for housing. (Deuteronomy 30:3; Isaiah 43:6; Ezekiel 34:11-13; 36:24; 37:1-14)
The Jews are being called home because a 3rd temple, the very soul of Judaism is soon to be built: (Daniel 9:27; 12:1, 11; Zechariah 11:16; Matthew 24:15, 21; Revelation 12:13)
The Jews are being called home because Israel will be invaded (Ezekiel chapters 38-39:the war of Gog and Magog). At the end of the war the they will know it is God who saved them and they will want to return to covenant relationship (Ezekiel 39:22).
Late in the tribulation Israel will finally recognize their Messiah, Jesus Christ: (Zechariah 12:10; Jeremiah 33:8; Ezekiel 11:17; Romans 11:26).
Obama and the Israel-hating left better get used to it.
