Palestinians Demand Immediate Statehood

Curt Here...

On Monday Israel announced plans to build 1,300 new housing units in Jerusalem and additional plans for over 800 new units in the West Bank. Israel for over a year now has had a construction freeze of new housing units in these areas as they have tried to negotiate some sort of peace agreement with the Palestinians. This freeze and effort has led nowhere.

With this announcement for future building of housing units, the Palestinians have countered by demanding immediate Statehood and international recognition from the UN. This would be done through a UN Security Council Resolution declaring statehood (as first suggested by Javier Solana in July of 2009). This has not been done before now because the US would have simply vetoed such a resolution, but for the first time there are signs coming out from the US Administration that such a resolution could simply be abstained.

So in essence this Resolution would pass by the US's lack of veto and the UN would then force (militarily?) Israel to give up East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria (West Bank). If this happens, and it sounds like the world is rapidly moving in that direction, we could have the prophetic setup for the end of days.

Luke 21:20

20."But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her desolation is near.

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.

Zechariah 14:2
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.

Stay Tuned,



Palestinians demand immediate statehood to counter Israeli 'unilateralism'

Israel's plan to build new homes in East Jerusalem and the West Bank should be countered by international recognition of a Palestinian state, the chief Palestinian negotiator said on Tuesday.

Raising the stakes in the deadlock over stalled peace talks, Saeb Erekat said it was clear from the latest announcement of building plans that Israel wants settlements, not peace.

"Israeli unilateralism is a call for immediate international recognition of the Palestinian state," he said in a statement......

....Israel on Monday announced plans to build 1,300 new housing units on occupied land near Jerusalem, and on Tuesday, Haaretz reported that a further 800 units were planned in the big settlement of Ariel in the northern West Bank.....

....The prospect of the United States recognising an independent Palestine without the agreement of Israel seems very remote. But Israeli analysts speculate that President Barack Obama could threaten to abstain rather than veto a UN resolution if he believes Israel is obstructing the path to a peace treaty.
