The LORD has made bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our [Israel’s] God. (Isaiah 52:10)

News item: UN passes US-drafted resolution recognizing the creation of a Palestinian state in the biblical heartland of Israel.

Question: How will the Lord God of Israel respond to this direct challenge to His Word?

Let’s take a look at the record, starting with the most recent phenomenon and working backwards:

  • June 24-25, 2002 – President Bush delivers his much anticipated policy speech on the Middle East which, while recognizing the more fundamental flaws on the Palestinian Arab side, once again affirms the president’s belief that a Palestinian state must be created on the heartland of Israel. On June 25, in the second corporate bombshell to hit the United States in the last six months, the US telecom giant WorldCom teeters on the brink of bankruptcy after disclosing it disguised nearly $4 billion of expenses as capital expenditures to appear more profitable. On July 2, President Bush’s homestate of Texas suffers severe flooding, with losses from the disaster expected to reach $1 billion. Nine people have so far been reported killed, over 48,000 homes have been affected and 24 counties in the state are declared disaster areas.
  • March 2002 – Six months after the attack on the US mainland, and following the most bloody week in the 17 month long Oslo War, as Israel responds forcefully after dozens of Israeli civilians and soldiers are shot or bombed to death, Secretary of State Colin Powell slams Prime Minister Sharon, saying, “if you declare war against the Palestinians and think you can solve the problem by seeing how many Palestinians can be killed – I don’t know if that leads you anywhere.”Seemingly oblivious to the hypocrisy, after the US has killed more than 4000 people in Afghanistan, the White House expresses its “deep concern” over the number of deaths in the Middle East, equating the killing of Arab gunmen in military gunfights with the terrorist murders of Israeli civilians in restaurants and other places of entertainment.

    Then, on March 12, in a fateful move, the United Nations Security Council votes on a resolution put forward by the United States which, for the first time ever, resolves that a Palestinian state be created alongside the Jewish state, on the biblical heartland of Israel. On the same day, the US Domestic Security chief announces that America is at a “significant” level of danger from international terrorists.

    As special envoy Anthony Zinni flies into the region to try and nail down a ceasefire, a visibly irate President Bush slams Israel for defending itself by going into PA hotbeds of terror. “I understand somebody trying to defend themselves, ” he says almost disparagingly, “but the recent actions are not helpful.”

  • November 2001 – On November 10, President Bush tells the United Nations General Assembly: “We’re working toward a day when two states – Israel and Palestine – live peacefully together…” In the same month, US energy giant Enron reports a $638 million loss and a $1.2 billion reduction in shareholder equity. It announces an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission. On December 2, Enron files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and announces more than 4000 layoffs – the biggest corporate fraud scandal to ever hit the United States.
  • October 2, 2001 – President Bush says he has a vision for peace in the Middle East that sees a Palestinian state set up on the biblical heartland of Israel. It is the first time an American president has outlined as policy the creation of a Palestinian state. On the same day, the first anthrax case in 25 years breaks out. The cases increase and end up costing the U.S. government billions of dollars along with destabilization of government offices for a few months.
  • August-September 2001 – On August 9 a suicide bomber kills nineteen people and wounds over 100 in a Jerusalem pizzeria. Bush condemns the attack, then goes on to demand that Israel abide by the Oslo Accords, the Mitchell and Tennet plans, and United Nations resolutions 242 and 338. He ends his speech by telling the Israelis they have to negotiate with the people responsible for the attack. By the time he makes this speech, Israel has been the victim of dozens of terrorist attacks, including some of the most bloodthirsty and horrific imagineable. Over 160 Jews have been killed; hundreds more have been wounded.In the face of this terrorism, Bush calls on Israel to negotiate away its God-given land to the Arab terrorists who spilling its people’s blood. Thirty-two days later, Arab terrorists strike at America, targeting the heart of the financial district and the symbol of American power in the world. Nearly 3000 people are killed. Damages are estimated to be in excess of $40 billion. The country is torn to the quick.
  • June 2001 – On June 6, President George W. Bush sends CIA director George Tenet to Israel to broker a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians and implement the Mitchell Report. Two days later, while Tenet is hosting talks between Israeli and Palestinian officials, and US assistant secretary of state William Burns is meeting with Arafat, Bush heads out to his Texas ranch for a break. On that very day, Alison, the worst tropical storm in the history of the United States, unleashes its fury on the president’s state, causing catastrophic destruction in Houston, destroying or damaging an estimated 25,000 homes and businesses and closing the city down for three days. The storm then rampages to Florida and up the East Coast, bringing disaster as far as Pennsylvania and continues raging for the duration of Tennet’s visit to the Middle East.
  • September-December 2000 – As Arafat launches his Oslo War, using Ariel Sharon’s Feast of Trunmpets visit to the Temple Mount as a pretext, both Israel’s and America’s political situations spiral into chaos – with Barak’s resignation triggering new prime ministerial elections and the American elections turning into a fiasco that would take weeks to resolve. On November 9, Arafat visited Clinton in Washington as the American presidency was dissolving into its worst crisis in over a century. The newspaper headlines on November 9 reported on Arafat’s visit and the presidential crisis.
  • July-August 2000 – Clinton takes Barak and Arafat to Camp David in an effort to secure final status agreements. The talks stall on July 26 over the question of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, and tensions are reported to be very high. While the talks are underway, huge forest fires break out in the western United States that are to rage right through August, devouring 17 million acres of forest and rendering two states disaster areas from what were called the worst fires of the century. Also during July, the worst drought of the century strikes Texas, turning it into a dust bowl.
  • June 2000 – On June 16, Clinton invites Arafat to the White House saying “I want to finish the job.” Arafat declares his intention to declare the state of Palestine on September 13, 2000. On the same day the Dow Jones Index collapses an hour before close of trading, ending on its lowest closing in months.
  • April 2000 – On April 12, Clinton summons Barak to meet with him in Washington to discuss ways to move the peace process forward. The same week the Nasdaq experiences the worst collapse in its history.
  • January 2000 – Clinton meets with Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak and Syrian foreign minister Farouk a-Shara on January 3 and 4 respectively to discuss Israel’s surrender of the Golan Heights to Syria. On January 4, Barak agrees to hand another five percent of Israel’s land to the Palestinians by the end of that week in accordance with agreements brokered by Clinton. Three days before the meeting, the US stock exchange reached its all-time high. On January 4 both the Dow and Nasdaq plummeted, the latter in its worst drop ever. The combined losses on that single day equalled $600 billion.
  • October 1999 – Surrendering to Clinton’s dictat, Israel spends the week of October 11 evicting settlers from hilltops in Judea and Samaria. Back in the US during the same week, the Dow Jones Index sees its biggest loss since 1989. On October 15, Hurricane Irene ploughs into North Carolina, and the following day the American Southwest is struck by the fifth most powerful earthquake to hit the country in the 20th Century.
  • September 13, 1999 – A meeting scheduled by Albright gets underway between Israel and the Palestinians, at which the surrender of more land to Arafat is to be worked out. On the same day, Hurricane Floyd descends on the American East Coast, leading to the biggest population evacuation in US history. The monster storm ravages North Carolina – destroying the entire eastern sector of the state.
  • May 4, 1999 – The day Arafat said he would declare his State of Palestine, Clinton, who asked Arafat to postpone that declaration by a few months, sends a letter to the PLO leader stating that the American position is that the Palestinians should be free to “determine their own future on their own land.” On the same day, tornadoes of unprecedented size and fury churn their way through Oklahoma and Kansas – destroying over 2000 homes in Oklahoma City alone, wiping at least one town right off the map, and killing nearly 50 people.
  • March 1999 – The US stock market plummets as Arafat and Clinton are meeting to talk about a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
  • December 1998 – Clinton arrives in the PA-controlled territories as the House of Representatives Judiciary Committe is meeting to discuss his impeachment. He is reported to be the first US president to give national status to a State of Palestine. Four days later he is reported to be the first president in 130 years to be impeached.
  • November 1998 – The stock market in the US reaches an all time high in the week of November 23. A week later Arafat arrives in the US to appeal to the nations of the world to support his effort to create Palestine. On the same day Clinton pledges $400 million and the European nations pledge another $1.7 billion, the stock market crashes in the US and, the following day, in Europe.
  • October 1998 – Clinton brings Netanyahu and Arafat together at Wye River to hammer out a deal whereby Israel would surrender more land to the Palestinians. For virtually the duration of the talks, floods and hurricanes ravage nearly a quarter of the state of Texas, swallowing small villages and causing over $1 billion in damage.
  • September 1998 – On the 24th, Clinton announces he will meet with Arafat and Netanyahu and do what he can to restart the stalled peace process over the issue of Israel’s giving Arafat more land. On the same day, Hurricane Georges is reported to be gathering momentum en route to the American mainland. Three days later, as Albright meets with Arafat in preparation for the terror chief’s session with Clinton, the “killer storm” slams into the Gulf Coast. American newspapers report Clinton’s subsequent meeting with Arafat and Netanyahu alongside reports of the hurricane’s rampage. By the time Arafat completes his address to the United Nations on September 28, Georges has left yet another billion dollars of destruction in the United States.
  • January 1998 – Clinton gives Prime Minister Binyanmin Netanyahu a frigid welcome and refuses to have dinner with him. A meeting between the two men is convened during which, the world’s media reports, terrible pressure is brought to bear on the Israeli to give away more land. Immediately following that meeting, a phone call comes to the White House, informing Clinton that his relationship with Monica Lewinsky is about to be made public.
  • March 1, 1997 – Clinton warmly welcomes Arafat to the White House, delivers a sharp rebuke to Israel for building on Har Homa. On the same day, tornadoes tear into the US, leaving trails of destruction in Clinton’s home state of Arkansas and in Kentucky, and causing over a billion dollars in damage.
  • January 16-17, 1994 – President Clinton meets with Syrian dictator Hafez el-Assad and tells Israel it will have to make “unpopular concessions” concerning the Golan Heights. The next day, a powerful earthquake rocks California, causing so much damage it is labeled as the second-worst disaster to hit the United States.
  • August 23-24, 1992 – Bush reconvenes the Madrid conference in Washington DC. On the same day, the “worst natural disaster ever to hit America” strikes, as Hurricane Andrew tears into the United States. The next day, the New York Times reports on its front page that Bush’s presidency has collapsed in the polls, and that newcomer Bill Clinton is heading for the White House.
  • October 30, 1991 – The US convenes the Madrid Middle East Peace Conference aimed at dispossessing Jews of the heartland of ancient Israel. On the same day, a freak storm develops off the east coast of the United States that will wreak millions of dollars in damage on America, also targeting Bush’s residence in Kennebunkport, Maine.
  • In February 1991, President George Bush liberates Kuwait from Saddam Hussein, sending the American leader’s popularity soaring to 92 percent in the polls.

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.

A Word From Zion

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.
