Obama: U.S. Does Not Recognize Legitimacy of Continued Israeli Settlements

Curt Here...

President Obama gave a speech today at the U.N. General Assembly in which he stated that "America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements and that it is time for Middle East peace "without preconditions."

If you do not know, the settlements that President Obama is referring to are the Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. My understanding is that there are upwards of 190,000 Jewish people living in these areas. Areas that the Palestinians claim ownership to and areas the United Nations and other major international bodies say are settled in direct violation of international law. Our country, has officially joined the ranks of "major international bodies" that consider the settlements a violation of international law. God help us.

Let me explain further with some scripture.

We know from scripture that at the midpoint of the 70Th week, when the Anti-Christ commits the Abomination of Desolation, that those in Judea must flee to the mountains.

Mathew 24:15-16

15. "Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
16. then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.

We know that half of Jerusalem will be exiled, (East Jerusalem?) probably at the midpoint..

Zechariah 14:1-2

1. Behold, a day is coming for the LORD when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you.
2. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.

We also know that the nation of Israel will be divided (again the midpoint).

Joel 3:2

2. I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat.
Then 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.

From the above and below scriptures it is clear that all nations who have participated in dividing the land of Israel, will be judged directly by God.

Zechariah 14:3

3. Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.

The United States is becoming one of these nations that will be judged directly by God because of our actions towards Israel.

After reviewing all of these scriptures it seems clear to me that at some point there will be a forced take over of East Jerusalem and the rest of the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria and it will be enforced by the Anti-Christ himself. The international community with major help from our President, is laying the groundwork for these prophetic events to occur. Maybe sooner than we think.

Stay Tuned



In declaring that it is time for Middle East peace "without preconditions," President Obama used his speech to the U.N. General Assembly Wednesday to fire a warning at Israel that "America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements."

Obama's stark declaration, which drew applause, was coupled with a call for Palestinians to end their "incitement of Israel."

But it was the use of the U.N. forum to carry the settlement message to Israel that drew the most enthusiastic response on the floor -- and incredulous reaction outside its walls.

Obama just put Israel "on the chopping block," said former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton.

Obama said he met Tuesday with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was not in attendance at the speech, and agreed that the two have made some progress in both strengthening security and facilitating freedom of movement, which have allowed the economy in the West Bank to grow.

But more progress is needed, he said.

"We continue to call on Palestinians to end incitement against Israel, and we continue to emphasize that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements," he said.
Obama said four issues separate the two sides: security, borders, refugees and Jerusalem, but the goal is clear: a secure, Jewish state for Israel and "a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967."

He also said a new order is needed in dealing with the dispute.

"The United States does Israel no favors when we fail to couple an unwavering commitment to its security with an insistence that Israel respect the legitimate claims and rights of the Palestinians. And nations within this body do the Palestinians no favors when they choose vitriolic attacks over a constructive willingness to recognize Israel's legitimacy, and its right to exist in peace and security," he said.
