We'll see how that works out. Now we see how the Obama administration is trying to take down Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu simply because his administration won't comply with the division of Jerusalem and they refuse to give away more Israeli land:
"More U.S. machinations against Israel"
Apparently the U.S. is making additional demands of Israel, in behalf of the Arabs..
It is demanding that Israel turn over the Abu Dis area, abutting Jerusalem, for the Palestinian Authority (P.A.) to turn into its capital. The U.S. supposedly wants to set a 2-year deadline for negotiation, at the conclusion of which, the P.A. would become sovereign. The U.S. also demands that Israel release 2,000 convicted terrorists.
Baring the whole U.S. strategy provides further evidence that the recent U.S.-Israel rift was engineered by the U.S., primarily in order to get Israeli concessions along the way to the full U.S. scheme for Israel.
As a result of the U.S. scheme, Israel would have no secure borders. So, an Arab alliance is indeed likely, but not to attack Iran, but finally to conquer Israel. The State Dept. will have succeeded in its decades-old goal of getting Israel to surrender enough strategic area so that the Arabs can deliver the final coup-de-tete and the U.S. would be thought to have clean hands
In a related article we see the following:
"Obama pressure creating political turmoil in Jerusalem"
Israel's government coalition may be on the verge of collapse thanks to last week's unprecedented pressure on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by US President Barack Obama.
The left-wing Labor Party, which has more or less stood by Netanyahu until now, has demanded that the prime minister bring the opposition Kadima Party into the coalition in order to mend the current rift with Washington.
Senior Labor ministers said Obama's demand that Netanyahu extend indefinitely the Jewish building freeze in Judea and Samaria had given them the opportunity to test the prime minister and his ruling Likud Party.
The freeze is scheduled to expire in September, at which point many Labor lawmakers said they would have fought hard to extend it. But Obama wants Netanyahu's commitment on the matter now.
Labor ministers say the only way forward considering the current situation is for Netanyahu to kick some of his more right-wing coalition partners out of the government and offer Kadima leader Tzipi Livni enough influence and power to entice her to join.
Israeli commentators have suggested that is what Obama wanted all along, since Kadima and Labor are far more in line with Washington's policies of creating a Palestinian state in nearly all of Judea and Samaria with the eastern half of Jerusalem as its capital.
Fortunately, I have my wife nearby to remind me that God is in complete control over these matters. Thats true. In fact I always want to go back and reference Psalm 33 during times like this:
"The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.
From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind;
from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth -
he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.
No king is saved by the size of his army;
no warrior escapes by his great strength.
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.
We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord
even as we put our hope in you"
It is hard to watch these current events - watching the demise of the U.S. - watching the U.S. administration turn against our previous allies while helping terrorists who desire to destroy Israel - wondering when (not if) Genesis 12:3 and Zechariah 12 becomes a factor as a result. Its hard.
However, this is the time to look up and focus squarely on God and His plan for the Church, and for the world. God has a plan and everything that we see happening in the world is part of His divine plan.
As my wife tells me (and she is absolutely correct) - we know how this story ends, and we win. Period.
Our redemption is coming soon!
God Bless and keep looking up!
