Coming to a Map Near You: A Shiny New Palestinian State
It’s bound to happen; especially with all the scuttle this year. Look at who all is putting their blessing for a Palestinian state:

So far, those coming out in opposition to a Palestinian state include Colombia and the United States at least when it comes to carving up more of Israel’s land. It seems that the only way the Palestinians will be happy is if Israeli territory is used. US Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee supports a Palestinian state, but not at the cost of carving up Israel to make it. At one time, the US proposed settling Palestinian refugees in South America. Now that is thinking outside the box. But, no matter how outside the box one may try to think, Israel is opposed to yielding up its land to legitimize another terrorist state bent on Israel’s destruction. Looking at this map makes it clear.
When looking at this map of the Middle East, one can’t help but wonder why the other Arabs states aren’t willing to yield up their land for a Palestinian state. If you go back and study the history of the formation of Israel all the way back to the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and you will see that a huge desolate piece of land was designated for Israel, and out of that, they carved the Transjordan state and designated it for displaced Arabs. It was a good plan, but not only did Transjordan become an Arab country, Jordan; Palestinian Arabs still demanded more out of Israel. I encourage you to read Two Myths in the Case for a Palestinian State located in the Prophecy Dude Blog section of the website at www.prophecydude.org for much more detail regarding this. Some Palestinians are admitting that this is correct and they are moving their citizenship to Jordan. You can read more about that in the article, Top Palestinians, finally admitting "Jordan is Palestine," take out Jordanian citizenship.
There are several things going on with the push for a Palestinian state. Brother Arab countries won’t yield up land or come to their Palestinian brother’s rescue because they want to see Israel carved up more. They want to see Israel “pushed out to sea and eliminated.” This conflict is Biblically-based and the hatred has extended for generations. They want Israeli land because of how blessed it has become. Out of barren land, Israel has been blessed to cause the desert to bloom. Israel is a democracy—the only democracy in the Middle East and the strict Islamic and very undemocratic Arab countries resent the influence this has on their people.
So, here is a group of people, who already are gaining some influential world support, who want to become a country but they have no land to do so. I like Israeli MK Danny Danon’s statement, “We need to make Salam Fayad’s fear come true –that the Palestinian State will be no more than a Facebook state and that the support it gets from the world is no more than a “like,” as he enlisted world Jewry influence and support toward this end.
The goal has been set for a Palestinian state in 2011, and money is coming in from the EU Commission and Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad is seeking $5 billion in donations to launch the Palestinian state, even though the site hasn’t been selected. Maybe Danon is right, Palestine will be a Facebook page. But the United Nations seems to already be on the side of the Palestinian state-seekers by stating that Israel must yield up land for this endeavor.
Now, almost everything I’ve discussed so far is from the political perspective. The most important reason for this struggle is centered in Jerusalem. For more on this, see my article The Most Valuable Piece of Real Estate. It all centers on Jerusalem:
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it” (Zechariah 12:2-3)
The struggle for who controls the Temple Mount will escalate to a place where peace will be demanded and Israel will be able to construct its Third Temple. For decades, world leaders have struggled for the crown jewel of being identified as the great leader who finally brings peace to the Middle East. That jewel will fall into the hands of one man who will broker the peace treaty of the centuries. This man will be acclaimed as one of the greatest leaders ever the world has known. A genius negotiator greatly admired. As soon as the pens are laid by the document, but before the smiles of success begin to infect everyone viewing an unheard sound prepared for thousands of years will commence as the tribulation clock begins its assignment.
