Prophetic Warning--US gives PLO permission to fly flag in Washington
The United States and Russia have taken historic steps to recognize a Palestinian state within pre-1967 borders without the cooperation of Israel. These actions, along with seven South American countries recently recognizing "Palestine," represents an incredible shift in worldwide pressure on Israel to give up its land to Palestinian terrorists under the false pretense that the two will live in peace. It also represents a historic change in policy by the United States to throw its lot in with traditional enemies of Israel in deference to supporting the only free democracy in the Middle East. The days, weeks and months ahead will most certainly define the prophetic direction of America under the current pro-Palestinian regime.
Associated Press reports that the White House gave permission to the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization to officially hoist its flag over its Washington, DC mission building. On Wednesday, the PLO flag was raised over the mission for the first time in history. The PLO is the terrorist organization from which the Palestinian Authority emerged. The PLO has been dedicated to the destruction of Israel since its inception. PLO Mission Chief Maen Areikat told AP that the gesture "means that the administration is serious, that they want to see the struggle of the Palestinian people concluded and the establishment of a Palestinian state."
Israel Today reported on Wednesday that America and Russia implicitly recognized a Palestinian state. It said Russian President Dimitry Medvedev, noting that Russia already recognized a Palestinian state when Yasser Arafat first declared independence in 1988, said at a news conference in Jericho, "We have supported the establishment of an independent state with east Jerusalem as its capital since the last century, and we still support it." Hours after Medvedev's declaration, the White House gave permission for the PLO to raise its flag over its mission in Washington. The conclusion can be drawn that Russia and the United States are working in unison against Israel.
The PLO long has been supported by the communist-based Soviet Union, communist China and other anti-Israel nation-states. The United States long has stood its ground in not being swayed by the anti-Israel communists, until the past two Administrations. This departure from longstanding US policy has been accelerated by this White House, a president who has indisputable deep-rooted ties with socialists and communists. From a prophetic standpoint, the United States is in great jeopardy, and every citizen could be impacted. In Zechariah 12:9 the LORD says, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." The warning can not be clearer.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
