In The News: Netanyahu's UN-speech lacks ...

The Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly on the 23th of September 2011, after the Palestinians submitted a UN request to become a member-state. He delivered a good speech in which he mentions ...

... that Israel is recognized as the Jewish state and that the settlements in certain parts of Israel are the result of the conflict between the Palestinians - that is the Arab peoples living in Israel - and the Israeli. He even mentions Lord Balfour – the Balfour Declaration of 1917 laid a legal basis for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in the territory of Palestine – and the actual official establishment of Israel in 1948.

But he fails to mention the creation of the autonomous Transjordan in 1928, which later became Jordan, as being that part of the Palestine territory that was designated to the Arab peoples living in that area. On which basis? The McMahon-Hussein Correspondence of 1915 which was the result of the British leaders at that time making conflicting promises about the territory of Palestine. 

Now Prime Minister Netanyahu mentioning this doesn't resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, but it would give those listening to him the chance to get a better perspective on the historical development of this conflict. Meaning, that people would get a better idea of the fact that more than two thirds of the territory of Palestine - name given to the territory by the Romans in early 20th century on a failed attempt to eradicate the Jewish presence and their historical ties to the Province of Iudaea, as the Romans called this territory until circa 135 AD - was already designated to the Arab peoples in the past even before the State of Israel was established in 1948. So, it's not that the Arab peoples living in that area didn't receive any part of that territory. Ever since, what did the leaders of Jordan do to accommodate the Arab peoples living in the rest of the territory including their refuges, which was meant to become the Jewish homeland?

In fact 70% of the population of Jordan is of Arab, Arabs living in the territory of Palestine, origins. For this reason Jordan is already a Palestinian State. So, why the need for one more Palestinian State? Jordan is being ruled by a minority group and a Hashemite King who is from Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Is maintaining this status quo the reason Jordan didn't allow more Arabs living in the rest of the territory of Palestine including the nowadays refugees to go and live in Jordan? And the leaders of these people don't go and demand any rights in Jordan because the rulers there are being backed by Saudi Arabia? Still Jordan is in fact a Palestinian State. Wouldn't adding more territory to the Arab peoples, by the international community, have an even more destabilizing effect on the region and the rest of the world?

I hope that the leadership of Israel and the Israelites wont make the same mistake King Saul made, 1 Samuel 28, even when these 'advisers' are close to home if not in their home, Jeremiah 44:15-19.  
For I do believe we are living in a time that the Almighty God does give wisdom to the leadership of Israel. So, I sincerely hope these leaders are prepared to truly accept and act on it. And that they will not allow themselves to be guided by any other then the Almighty Father. 

By the grace of the Almighty God and Father, Israel is and will remain the Jewish State with its undivided capital city, Jerusalem!

… 5 There stand the thrones for judgment,
the thrones of the house of David.

6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May those who love you be secure.

7 May there be peace within your walls

and security within your citadels.”

8 For the sake of my family and friends,

I will say, “Peace be within you.”

9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,

I will seek your prosperity.
Psalm 122 (NIV)

Keep praying for the Israeli leadership, the Israelites and for Jerusalem, Israel!
