Daily Wire: Vox has written a piece about the post-Oslo Accords modern history of the city of Bethlehem that is, in the words of one venerable pro-Israel Twitter user, “inexcusably dishonest.” And it is.
Seven years following 1993’s fateful signing of Oslo I between the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and the late Palestinian-Arab unrepentant jihadist Yasser Arafat, Vox informs its readers, “tourism in Bethlehem … took a nosedive when the Israeli military invaded many of the West Bank’s major cities that were under Palestinian jurisdiction.” Vox continues: “As a political stalemate and expanding Israeli settlements led to the bloody Second Intifada, or uprising, the devastation and Israeli curfews kept tourists away; hotels closed and restaurants went out of business.”
This is not merely historical revisionism or tendentious distortion. It is an outright lie. Read More …
Opinion: Who will stand for Israel? It is either the pitiful idea of a two state solution that was turned down by the Arab side on multiple occasions, or it is land for peace that was blown to smithereens by the Gaza disengagement plan of 2005 putting the terror group Hamas in charge.
Arab Palestinians never had any intentions of peace with Israel, only peace without Israel by whatever gruesome means necessary. The world cheerfully goes along, fulfilling prophetic Scripture without having the slightest idea that it is doing so.
The final prophet of the OT, Malachi 1:1-3, gives us the account of Esau in the last days being out of favor with the Lord:
“I have loved you,” says the Lord.
“Yet you say, ‘In what way have You loved us?’
Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?”
Says the Lord.
“Yet Jacob I have loved;
But Esau I have hated,
And laid waste his mountains and his heritage
For the jackals of the wilderness.”
Edom as he is called in Genesis 36:1 will return in the last days to reclaim his lost birthright that was traded for a bowl of soup (Genesis 25:29-34), as seen in Arabs trying to illegally build Arab structures in Area C of Judea (here).
Thus says the Lord of hosts:
“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
We find Esau, Jacob’s eternal enemy, and his descendants from Genesis to the Second Coming (Isaiah 63:1-3) whom only Jesus can stop.
