JERUSALEM: Home Of Two Independent States?
Is there new movement in the Middle East and in Europe to make Palestine an independent state, with a demand that their capital be the old city of Jerusalem? The Arab League drafted a proposal and presented it to the U.N., but with no success. At the same time the French Parliament give it’s approval to the creation of a Palestinian state. For this to go ahead, the U.N. would need an agreement by the U.S., but so far this has received a U.S. veto on the proposal.
Israel’s then Prime Minister and Defense Minister came to the U.S. in 2010 to voice their acceptance of an independent Palestinian State to be negotiated immediately, “even if it takes painful decisions to get rid of this problem forever. It is clearly time to make a decision between politics and history, nothing is beyond human capacity to solve,” – Ehud Barak, former Israeli Defense Minister.
Beyond obtaining Palestinian recognition of the Jewish State in return for Israel’s compliance, the sticking point will be over who controls ALL of Jerusalem. The Palestinians demand the Old City as their capital, Israel claims Jerusalem as their perpetual capital.
There has for some time been a European/Vatican proposal allowing Israel greater access to European markets with perhaps associate membership in the E.U. and allowing Jerusalem to become the Capital of both States with an Israeli and a Palestinian Mayor with Vatican mediation between the two.
The Vatican already has received control of most Christian sites in Israel and has recently been given land to build a facility which may become a second Vatican in Jerusalem. Prophecy indicates a re-location of the Papacy from Rome to Jerusalem.
In December 2014 the Israeli Prime Minister stated Israel’s opposition to the new proposal, since this many nations have aligned themselves behind the new initiative. Former Prime Minister, the late Shimon Perez has stated “any agreement should be made through direct negotiations and not by an imposition.”
If a deal can been worked out will all sides keep their word or will the admittance of U.N. ‘peace keepers’ finally bring about the occupation of the Jewish state? Prophecy indicates German/E.U. involvement, with troops on the ground in the State of Israel, becoming occupiers!
Can A Deal Be Struck?
On his visit to Israel in 2016 the head of the Roman Catholic Church summoned the Prime Ministers of both sides to Rome for meetings and prayers, both immediately agreed to attend and came to the Vatican. This may be an indicator of what is soon to come.
The Vatican will be instrumental in bringing about an agreement, but Papal involvement will eventually prove to be treacherous to the safe existence of the state of Israel! An agreement to allow Israelis access to the Temple Mount and the building of the long proposed temple could also be included in any coming settlement, setting the stage for the long expected construction of a structure to be used for Jewish worship.
Recently there has been talk of negotiations between ‘Jewish leaders, Muslim clerics, a respected Muslim writer and a so called ‘christian prophet,’ in the person of the head of the Catholic church, to allow the construction of the proposed temple. See the Virtual Reality video of the Temple on Page 5 of the America And Britains Future Free Library.
