Knesset opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Wednesday that the Obama administration and leftist Israeli politicians plan to "internationalize" the Temple Mount and other holy sites in Jerusalem.
According to Israel National News, Netanyahu promised that he would fight this effort: “Some politicians are trying to blur the importance of the Temple Mount to the Jewish People by referring to it as the ‘Holy Basin.’ We, as Jews, know who built the Temple Mount.”
This report comes on the heels of an earlier revelation that Barack Obama held a secret meeting with Palestinian leadership last summer during which he expressed his desire to divide up the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
According to WorldNetDaily, Barack Obama told the Palestinian leadership during a trip to that region in July that he supports a Palestinian state and a Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem, but he asked them to keep his remarks secret, according to a Lebanese newspaper.
So Barack Obama wants to divide up the land of Israel and give the Palestinians a capital in east Jerusalem?
As if we didn't have enough problems.....
Don't the leaders of the United States realize what they are doing?
God does not bless those who try to divide the land of Israel.
In fact, world leaders continue to operate under the delusion that they can find a solution to all of this conflict by dividing the land of Israel.
In Genesis 12:3, God warns that those who curse Israel will be cursed when he promised this to Abraham:
"I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."
In the book of Joel, God warns specifically against dividing the land of Israel.
Joel 3:1-2 states, "...I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of my people and my inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up my land."
Bill Koenig, the author of Israel: The Blessing or the Curse, has said this: "We know for a fact that God gave this land, through the Abrahamic covenant, He gave the land of Israel to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants, and this land is God's land."
In the Scriptures, the prophet Zechariah warned the nations about the city of Jerusalem in particular in Zechariah 12:3 -- "On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves."
So is there any evidence of a curse on those who try to divide the land of Israel existing today?
Consider some examples.....
#1) On April 30, 2003, America was positioned to be the catalyst for the so-called "solution" to the Middle East crisis. As Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas was sworn in, the "Road Map" peace plan was set in motion.
The very next day began the worst month of tornadoes in United States history - more than 500 in a single month. Under normal conditions, 1,000 tornadoes hit the United States each year, but in just eight days that May, 375 twisters ripped across the heartland of America.
#2) May 9, 2003, President Bush addressed students at the University of South Carolina. Bush called on the Palestinians to embrace the roadmap to peace, and Bush expressed his desire to see the flag of Palestine raised over a free nation.
Hours later, tornadoes returned and Oklahoma City again became the bullseye for deadly twisters, reducing what was left of businesses and homes to splinters and bricks. The tornadoes of May devastated the Midwest with the third worst property damage in American history.
#3) On October 30, 1991, in a meeting scheduled by the first President Bush, Israelis and Palestinians discussed ways to achieve peace in the Middle East. Opening talks focused on trading parts of Israel for a peace agreement.
That same day, thousands of miles away, a powerful storm was brewing off the coast of Nova Scotia. On October 31st, what would be known as "The Perfect Storm" smashed into New England, pummeling the President's Kennebunkport, Maine home with waves 30 feet high. It was a storm so rare that the weather patterns required to create it only happen about once every 100 years.
#4) On August 23rd, 1992, Middle East peace talks resumed in Washington, D.C. The talks continued to focus on surrendering the biblical lands of Judea and Samaria in exchange for peace. Hundreds of miles south, Florida was the target for one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history. Hurricane Andrew ripped through the state with an eye more than 30 miles wide and winds up to 178 miles per hour leaving a 32 billion dollar disaster.
#5) Between August 16th and 30th, 2005, Ariel Sharon expelled 9,480 Jewish settlers from 21 settlements in Gaza and four settlements in the northern West Bank.
On January 4th, 2006, Sharon had a stroke, and he fell into a coma and is now in a persistent vegetative state.
#6) The U.S. had strongly pressured Sharon to evacuate those settlers from Gaza.
On August 29th, 2005 the storm that would become Hurricane Katrina formed, and it devastated New Orleans and the surrounding areas to such an extent that they still have not recovered. The storm caused at least 200 billion dollars in damage.
#7) In June of 2001, George W. Bush sent CIA director George Tenet to Israel to attempt to implement the Mitchell Plan, a plan calling for, among other things, cessation of new building in the Jewish settlements.
On the same day that Tenet met with Israeli and Palestinian officials, tropical storm Allison formed in the Gulf of Mexico and moved over Texas, the President's home state, and dropped over 28 inches of rain over the Houston area alone, causing over $4 billion dollars in damage. The storm then moved to Florida and up the east coast causing damage as far as Pennsylvania. The meteorologists called Allison the "worst tropical storm in history".
There are many more examples of this phenomenon listed here:
So will the United States continue to mock God and continue to try to divide up the land of Israel?
Let's hope not.
