MembersThere Is No Political Solution

The situation is bleak, unpromising. Heaven, alone, has the solution to this mess but what it might be I cannot say and will not speculate about here.

Passing recently through Samaria and Judea, I was confronted by the unsettling fact that, whereas there may once have been a way towards securing at least a kind of peace for Israel, that option has long gone. There is now no political solution to what has become a mushrooming mess in the Biblical heartland.

Every head of state on the planet today mulishly insists that the Two State Solution (2SS) is the only way to end the Arab-against-Jew* conflict which, for one hundred years, has bloodied the land between the River and the Sea.

Never mind that this approach (the basis of multiple states’ foreign policies since the first partition plan – The Peel Commission – was published in 1937) has an 85-year record of abject failure, not least because the Arabs unswervingly rejected and militated against it, while the Jews always – if reluctantly – did not.

And never mind, either, that this 2SS is both discriminatory and unjust: This small area comprises the cradle of Jewish nationhood and their only ancestral home – an...

    I must say after much thought, prayer and study I agree. Arabs were given Transjordan in 1921. That area was immediately closed to Jewish settlement. Jews deserve, after much persecution throughout the centuries, the return of their own God-given historical homeland as their forever home. The two state solution I have come to see as no solution. In line with the Balfour agreement, the new Jewish state invited those Arabs already resident to help build the new country together in combined fraternal action. Sadly, most refused. Those who joined the efforts were, and are, welcomed as full citizens of the new state without distinction and with full equal rights.
    What more could have been done?

    The world systems are all being shook. We should be able to see that. Politics have never solved anything just delayed the inevitable. This world has principalities, powers and rulers in high places that politics cannot touch. When the Jews rejected the true King they opened up the door of trouble, and trouble they’ll have until He return.

      No, not true! When Adam and Eve ate of the Tree of Life that opened the door of trouble for all mankind from the beginning of time until the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ returns!!

    The Lord Himself drew the boundaries of Israel, those boundaries are still marked on the Lords map. The 2SS is man made and not legal in the court of the Lord. Ezekiel 38 is on the move to be played out very soon, it will be a short time later that the Lord will fully implement the true boundary of Israel and it will stand for one thousand years before the planet and all the old universe is put away and the new planet and universe, free of sin, will be brought into existence to last forever.
    The Lord has written out the plan of salvation for mankind, it, will, come to pass.
