24 Apr Fatah Chooses Hamas over Peace
Once again, after all of the negotiations, after all of the high hopes and expectations, given the option between peace and Hamas, Fatah has chosen to form a unity government with a group that has as its stated goal to commit a final genocide against the Jews. IN fact, they believe it is their divine destiny. Granted, according to the Pew Research Center, in a poll conducted between March 21 and April 26 of 2011, 78 percent of Palestinians support suicide bombing to kill Jews. Of those polled, only 19 percent said they would never support suicide bombing. So the problem of course is far more than just the Palestinian leadership. The problem is systemic. But for those naive souls who still cling to the notion that the real problem is those darned Jews, let’s consider a few brief sections of the official charter of Hamas, the group that Fatah has chosen to join:
“… the Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take. The prophet … said: The Day of Judgment will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!”
“There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by jihad. The initiatives, proposals and international conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility.”
“Jihad is a duty binding on all Muslims. … We have no escape from raising the banner of jihad. “I swear by that who holds in His Hands the Soul of Muhammad! I indeed wish to go to war for the sake of Allah! I will assault and kill, assault and kill, assault and kill.”
For those who seem to think that Israel can do no right, I want you to honestly ask yourself: What if these people were your neighbors? And what if they were talking about murdering your children? When one supports Hamas, this is exactly the type of demonic venom that is being supported.
As I have said before, Palestinian children continue to suffer because the Palestinian leaders continue to support and propagate the Islamic traditions that foment an anti-Semitic murderous racism among its people. And the people refuse to reject it. Repentance must come before peace can even be considered! While this saying may be overplayed, the simple fact of the matter is that the Palestinian child will have peace when the Palestinian people learn how to love their own children more than they hate the Jewish people.
Here’s the full story from Fox News

What I find interesting is the PLO is under a tremendous financial burden. It is unable to fund its own operations to set up any permanent government agency.
The question is “if Palestine was a territory, where is the government of the Palestinians?”
They have even considered just giving up management of the West Bank and Gaza back to Israel.
Some say that Israel’s Arab neighbors flood these two areas with unwanted citizens of their own countries.
There will be no two state solution in the future. There is only Israel.

I personally believe, God’s sovereignty and timing has not come to fruition yet on this ever-vexing issue within the Middle East. Peace will never be accomplished between descendants of Isaac/Jews and Ismael/Arabs until the “time of the end” and man in his humanistic efforts, apart from God, is showing his latest failure as this current round of negotiations reveals. To me, this is so predictable and obvious, yet man continue to beat his head against the wall on this issue. Unbelievable!

Of course all the blame will be placed on Israel as usual, no matter
how much Israel compromises , it will never be enough in the worlds eyes,
and if they dare to make a stand for their own interests………

Between what Caroline Glick communicates in her most recent book, and the final word being communicated by this flash mob in Beirut, http://anastasias-corner.blogspot.ca/2012/04/flash-mob-in-beirut-lebanon-singing.html all I can say is, there is quite the gulf between those who accept the light, and those who fight against it.

“the simple fact of the matter is that the Palestinian child will have peace when the Palestinian people learn how to love their own children more than they hate the Jewish people.”
That’s what Golda Meir said, too.
“Violence (hamas) will not be heard again in your land, nor devastation or destruction within your borders; but you will call your walls salvation (yshuwah), and your gates praise.” Isaiah 60:18

So many has thought this round of ” talks,” would lead to the ” Covenant with Many,” Dan 9:24-27. I have expressed my view that this passage has nothing to do with the end times. Every section in Daniel that speaks of the end or latter days always tells you so within the context. There is no mention of last or latter times in Daniel 9, but a specific message about the coming of Messiah. This message ties the coming of Messiah to the destruction of the temple and Jerusalem itself. The Temple’s destruction and Jerusalem’s raising to the ground were prophesied by YESHUA Himself, in connection with His being cut off. Why is Dan 9 forced into the last days when there are so many scriptures that deal with those events clearly. Dan 9 is the most powerful argument and persuasion to reach the lost among Israel. Today’s believers have lost that understanding and instead look to some future fulfillment rather than the plain sense of what was being said. Those first century Jews would have understood who prophesied this great destruction, first Daniel and second the One who was cut off.
As I ate the Passover this year and I heard the Words, Matthew 26:24, 27-28 The Son of Man is to go, just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born.” And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.
Mark 14:24 And He said to them, “This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.
Have you ever read these verses in this light? The cut off Messiah making a covenant with many through His blood?

If I may disagree with you, personally I’m absolutely confident that Dan. 9 has everything to do with the end times. Let me briefly touch on why I see this. First, the final shabuah (which is a sabbath cycle of years) is that which brings to completion the 6 specific things that are mentioned in verse 24. All of these things are directly and specifically with reference to the literal city of Jerusalem and the literal Jewish people (“your people and your holy city”). While Jesus’ first coming absolutely provided for the future fulfillment of these things, they have not already been accomplished or fulfilled. No one can say that all of these things has been accomplished for the Jews and for Jerusalem, until Jesus is on the throne there, all of Israel is serving the Lord with a new heart and a new sprit, and Jerusalem is a praise in all the earth. The 6 things are the following:
1) The finish of transgression.
2) The end of sin.
3) The atonement for iniquity
4) The bringing in of everlasting righteousness
5) The sealing up of vision and prophecy
6) The anointing of the most holy place
Second, Daniel 9 speaks of the Abomination that Causes Desolation. This is clearly at the end of days and not in 70 A.D. Daniel 8, 11, and 12 all make this a non-negotiable. It is The Abomination of Desolations and it has not yet happened. There have only been foreshadows.
The Supercessionist / Replacement Theology perspective must by necessity see the events of 70 A.D. as the primary burden and ultimate fulfillment of all of the prophecies. Why? Because for the Supercessionist, this is the event whereby the Lord has placed His stamp of divorce over Israel as a corporate nation and people and transferred it to the Church. At the root of the problem is the fact that Supercessionists generally do not properly understand the Old Testament covenants. They most often conflate the Abrahamic Covenant, which is a unilateral, unconditional, irrevocable, everlasting covenant, and the Mosaic Covenant which is bilateral, conditional covenant. The reason I mention this is because if one properly understands the covenants then 70 A.D. is seen as yet one more temporary discipline of Israel according to the curses of the Mosaic Covenant, similar to the Babylonian captivity, and is not some final event whereby the Abrahamic Covenant was annulled, as Supercessionists claim. The Lord, who is faithful to His promises has brought Israel back to their land, and He will yet fulfill all that He has promised to them in the Abrahamic, Davidic Covenants, as well as that which is listed in Daniel 9:24. But it has not happened yet.
Grammatically speaking, the one who confirms the covenant is the nearest preceding subject, which is the prince who is to come who destroys the city and sanctuary. Supercessionists have to violate the normal rules of grammar to make the one who confirms the covenant to be the Messiah, and in my opinion, violate the clear meaning of the passage. They are also forced to say that it is Jesus who causes offerings to cease here, but the Antichrist in Daniel 8:11-15, 11:31 and 12:11. To me the immediate context of the Book of Daniel makes it impossible to see Jesus as the one who causes offerings to cease. Any Jew would see offerings ceasing as bad and not a good thing, including Paul and the early disciples. If they are bad, then there is no reason for them to be picked back up again in the Millennium, which they clearly do (Ezekiel 40-48). But that is a whole other issue.
In any case, I hope this brief post has all made good sense. But if we continue to disagree, it is ultimately of little matter, as then time will eventually confirm the issue one way or the other.

Interesting that, when these talks break down (like after Camp David in 2000), the Temple Mount always becomes the main flashpoint. Hmmmm….
ChristopherPosted at 20:21h, 26 April
Here is a passage that I think might help. Matthew 24:15.
Jesus is making a reference to the latter days.
I hope this was helpful.
