Holy Sites on the Chopping Block?

To be sure, Abbas and other PA leaders have also taken other stances on this question, sometimes contradictory, depending on their audience. One particularly entertaining response was made this week by former PA government minister Ashraf Al-Ajrami, speaking with Israel’s Army Radio. “We negate only communities under some kind of Israeli control,” he said, “but if you want, you can live [here] as a Palestinian citizen in every way.”

Given the combination of repeated warnings that no Jew may reside in “Palestine,” the PA’s indoctrination of children that Jews are “descendants of monkeys and pigs” and seek to kill innocent Arabs, and the ongoing hero-worship of Palestinian murderers of Jews, it is beyond imagination to conceive of Jews living safely in Beit El, Shilo and Elon Moreh under Arab control. Secretary Kerry will thus have to seek elsewhere for “creative solutions” if he expects to forge a long-lasting peace agreement between Israel and the PLO.

  1. What is wrong with us ?

  2. Ronny Mol says:

    What's all the bother. Israelis voted for Bibi, they know he is a loser. The Knesset voted FOR same sex abomination; 80% of Israelis are secular and do not care or know who Avraham is. The women walk half naked in the winter. Religious women still show their hair. We are LOST. Intermarriage with the goyim is going strong with no end insight. My children will NOT go in the IDF. The IDF is useless. First you have to fire in the air, then at the legs and finally at the heart. Release terrorists so the IDF has to go in again and get them while trying NOT to get killed or hurt. War is on the horizon and the Israeli government has NO clue how to deal with it. Let's run to the Americans to see what we should do. It is a farce.

  3. Ronny Mol says:

    I forgot to mention that Israeli Arabs do NOT pay taxes, get free education to become lawyers, judges and doctors on the Jew's backs and then say to your face, I hate you and hope you die. What? No response from the PM, Knesset, police, IDF. Only G-d can save us.

  4. This is the first time frame in history where we have so many end times prophecies occurring at the same time. Earthquakes in diverse places, wars and rumors of wars, starvation, illnesses, and people traveling to and fro and knowledge increased. In just the last few decades man has started flying in mass. Our homes have pluming and heating, electric lights, cloths washers, dish washers, TV's and computers, and the BIG one,,, Israel is back as a nation. The rapture of the Church is on the verge of taking place. When that happens there will be no Christians in the world for a brief time and the antichrist will quickly take control of a new one world government. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses salvation and prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  5. It seems the present rulers just can't give away the Holy land fast enough. With the ease at which they do it, it is not hard to tell they must not believe the scriptures or perhaps don't understand that Israel has been returned to their land and that they will never leave it again.

  6. Margaretha Tierney says:

    Study Daniel's prophecies and you will discover that the Vatican has ulterior motives with its interest in Jerusalem. The plan is to bring back the Inquisition and the Holocaust and all Sabbath-keepers (Jew and Christian alike) will be killed. Do not give in to the Pope's request to take over the holy sites.

    Read Zechariah 12:1-3 that is all the U.S., the palestinians or any enemies of Israel need to understand!
