With the U.S. abstention in late 2016 the Arab League has gained a political victory. Israel at least temporarily lost U.S. support to continue building new settlements in the West Bank.
The Swedish and French Parliaments gave approvals to a Palestinian State followed by the British, but to have the old city of Jerusalem become Palestine’s Capital was considered a proposal which may have made a bad situation worse at that time.
Earlier Israeli Attempt
Israel’s Prime Minister and former Defense Minister came to the U.S. in 2010 to voice their willingness to negotiate, “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.
As former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Perez stated: “an agreement should be made through direct negotiations and not by an imposition.”
There has been a 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.
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.
In mid-2014 the head of the Roman Catholic Church on a visit to Israel summoned the Prime Ministers of both sides to Rome for meetings and prayers. Both attended, this may be an indicator of what is ahead. See new article on Pages 1&2 of Librarian’s Comments.
The Vatican may be instrumental in making the agreement and in mediating between the two sides but Papal involvement will prove treacherous to the independence of Israel!
Beyond obtaining Palestinian recognition of the Jewish State, the sticking point will be over who controls Jerusalem.
The Palestinians demand the Old City as their capital, Israel claims Jerusalem as their perpetual capital. Handing over the Old City to allow future terrorist attacks on Israel would be the last straw in losing Israel’s security.
A proposed ‘OPEN CITY’ may be the final outcome rather than a shared Capital.
European-Vatican Take Over!
Prophecy indicates European-Vatican involvement, with UN-European troops on the ground in Jerusalem, becoming occupiers! Zechariah 14:2 is a DUAL prophecy relating to Jerusalem at this time, which says “HALF the City shall be taken” (controlled by U.N.- E.U.- German forces.)
The Vatican will also want access to the Temple Mount, which will become an issue for all religions to have the right to worship there!
Prophecy indicates a relocation of the Papacy from Rome to Jerusalem backed by force of arms causing the loss of control of half of the City and the Temple Mount by Israeli forces shortly before Gods’ intervenes in order to halt the final battle between gathered world forces on the plain of Megiddo and around the City of Jerusalem!
This Will Affect Us All
