When the darkness of deception overcomes the light of peace
In the days ahead of the United Nations meeting where the Palestinian Authority will independently seek official statehood for land in Israel, the Saudis are paying the Palestinians $200 million to make up a shortfall it needs to become a nation. This is an interesting development. The Saudis are ostensibly against the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah, which are prominently a part of the whole Palestinian movement in Israel. The news media likes to portray the wealthy Saudi Arabia as a moderate Arab state in the Middle East, an ally of the United States. In reality, it was terrorists from Saudi Arabia who hijacked the airplanes and ran them into the Pentagon and the World Trade Center towers on 9/11.
There is so much that defies common sense and logic with regard to carving a "Palestinian" state out of Israel. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and all the other state actors surrounding Israel have enough useless land themselves that they could deed it over to the "Palestinians" if they were really concerned that their Arab brothers needed their own country. But, no, it has to be a state dividing Israel. If there were ever a perfect example that can be used of what will happen with Israel when a Palestinian state is created, Gaza is it. In August 2005, then Prime Minister Ariel Sharon ordered the eviction of some 8,500 Jewish settlers still remaining from 21 settlements in Gaza.
The peaceful Palestinians shot at the Israeli settlers as they were removed. Shortly afterwards, the Palestinians ransacked the productive greenhouses and buildings left by the Jews. Then they set up terrorist operations and began firing missiles into Israel--not at military installations, but at unwalled villages that heretofore had lived in peace. Five months later, Sharon suffered a stroke that has left him in a coma. Hamas has used Gaza as a staging ground for terrorist activities. Since the "liberation" of Egypt supported by the US government, Egypt has strengthened relations with Hamas and Hezbollah and there has been reports of increased weapons smuggling into the "Palestinian" held territories.
Whether it is Saudi Arabia or Egypt or Iran, who have differing views of Islam and in a vacuum would kill one another over it, they are united on one thing: hatred for Israel and Jews. This hate supersedes any relationship with any ally, and any intolerance for any political system or religious belief. Anyone with any sense at all can see it. Yet church leaders, leaders of nations, and even some Jews believe that splitting Israel into two pieces and sharing Jerusalem with terrorists whose mission is to destroy Israel will bring about peace. What folly! The Lord says in Jeremiah 8:11, "For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, "Peace, peace; when there is no peace." But there is plenty of deception.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
