In the light of God’s warning to the nations through His prophet Joel that He will one day bring them to judgment for dividing the land He repeatedly vowed to give to just one nation – His own beloved and Chosen People – it is appalling to read Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s expressed belief that he can almost see the hand of God behind the crazy idea* being pushed upon Israel by the nations of the world: that a 23rd Muslim Arab state-Palestine-be established in the heart of this already tiny little land.

As you must know, Mr. Olmert, this is not the advice of friends but of self-serving politicians who are afraid or unable to withstand the immense pressures of the whole Muslim world (of more than 40 nations) and also the millions of Muslims within their own borders. No, this is not the kind advice of friends, but unconscionable exploitation for reasons of expediency. And it is certainly not the hand of God behind all this pressure, but the sinister influence of your combined enemies-or should we say, the Enemy?

Therefore, together with millions of Christians who are true friends of Israel, and in faithfulness to what the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem declared at its opening on October 15, 1981, pledging its “support and untiring international effort for the unification of Israel’s land and Israel’s capital Jerusalem,” we call upon you both – Mr. George W. Bush and Mr. Ehud Olmert – to cease forthwith your attempt to placate Israel’s enemies with a 23rd state of their own, thereby facilitating the demise of this young courageous nation, to the judgment of all those responsible for pushing Israel down this totally treacherous road.

* The revelation, on the same day as Mr. Olmert’s statement, that two official PA policemen murdered two Israeli hikers in the last week of 2007, using weapons issued under Israel’s supervision as part of the “peace process,” is only the latest proof of the foolishness of this idea.

The PLO was instituted in 1964 three years before the six day war in June 1967 when Israel, in a war of self-defense, recovered the so-called “West Bank”, now seen and proclaimed by nearly everybody as the quintessence crux of the Middle East problem.
This however shows that the PLO (All Palestine needs to be liberated) was not formed to erect a Palestinian state on the ‘so called’ West Bank but was instituted to replace all of Israel with a Muslim Palestinian State.

The New Testament Basis for the Restoration of Israel

Jesus was asked by His disciples whether He would restore the kingdom to Israel at that time, to which He replied:
Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
