Lieberman: No Palestinian State in 2012. The New York Times Reports

I … Lieberman: No Palestinian state in 2012. The New York Times reports:

In remarks that could further strain peace efforts, Israel’s foreign minister said Tuesday that there was no chance that a Palestinian state would be established in the next two years. “I’m an optimistic person, but there is absolutely no chance of reaching a Palestinian state by 2012,” said the minister, Avigdor Lieberman. “One can dream and imagine, but we are far from reaching understandings and an agreement.” (…)

Russia, the United States, the European Union and the United Nations, in a grouping called the quartet, have called for a peace accord between Israel and the Palestinians by 2012. (…)

The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, responded indirectly to Mr. Lieberman from the West Bank town of Ramallah, saying that he believed in the peace process and that he hoped that a deal would emerge as soon as possible. “We will make every effort to reach a solution, because time is not on anyone’s side,” he said during a news conference with Mr. Lavrov. “Achieving peace is in the best interest of Israel, the Palestinians and the whole world.”

Salam Fayyad, the Palestinian prime minister, has repeatedly said his goal is to set up the institutional foundations of a state by the end of next year.

II … The US is calling for a peace accord between Israel and the Palestinians by 2012. The Palestinians want a nation state. The sticking point to a Israel-Palestinian peace accord and recognition of a Palestinian statehood is primarily the location of the Palestinian capital.  The Palestinians have on numerous times reported that a Palestinian State would have its Capital in Jerusalem. And the leaders of Israel have repeatedly stated that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel; and that it is currently and will forever be an undivided city; and that Israel being sovereign will never ever permit a Palestinian capital to be established in Israel. For Israel the case is closed, and is not now, nor will it ever be subject to any negotiation.     

Sometime very soon, definitely before 2012,  Israel, and/or the United States, will initiate a military strike against Iran to end its nuclear ambitions. The situation will escalate and the nations of Syria, Hezbollah in Jordan, Turkey will counter-attack. This will lead to all out war against these nations by Israel. Russia will come into the area to preserve its strategic interests in oil pipelines. And NATO forces will flow into the region from Germany, with missile defenses in Romania and Bulgaria being activated. All of this was foretold in Bible prophecy by the prophet Ezekiel writing in Ezekiel 38.      

III … Reformed Christianity, of which I am an adherent is not particularly, supportive of Zionism; yet it has a doctrine of bible prophecy which foretells of a world war between Israel, Iran, Syria, Turkey and other arab nations that draws in Russia, Germany, Bulgaria, Romania, as well as Turkey. One can read of this in  Jack Kelley’s article The Battle Of Ezekiel 38 on the Grace Through Faith Website.

And bible prophecy of Daniel 9:27 foretells that the world’s Sovereign will one day, after this terrific war,  establish a peace covenant between Israel and Arab nations.  

Yet the Sovereign will not fully honor that covenant as he will break it after 36 months. “He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week”; here each day represents one year. This important phrase indicates that the event that starts the 70th week, the seven-year tribulation, is the signing of a seven-year covenant between the Sovereign and Israel. The signing of the covenant begins the period called the Tribulation. At the halfway point of the Tribulation, which is three and a half years, the Sovereign will break this covenant with Israel with an event called “The Abomination of Desolation.” It is at this time that God provides a physical place of safety, that is a refuge, for a select group of saints.This also signals there is only three and a half more years remaining before Christ returns to earth to set up His Earthly Kingdom, which will last for a 1,000 years.

It is a given that the covenant between the Sovereign and Israel will permit the Jews to rebuild their temple, where they will once again practice their sacrifices.
