A Biblical Answer to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Once more Israel is fighting for survival in the Middle East. Once more her enemies have not learned the lessons of history and so they are attacking Israel, this time in the godless organization called the United Nations. In the end Israel will emerge victorious and for this reason. The nations in general, and the Arabs in particular cannot totally unite among themselves according to divine design and prophecy.

The United Nations cannot agree on how to solve the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict because their counsel is absolutely foolish. On December 28, 2016, Secretary of State John Kerry gave a major speech on how to solve the problem. He laid down several principles for peace. Principle 2 stated that there should be two states for two peoples, one Jewish and one Arab.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the speech by US Secretary of State John Kerry on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as biased against Israel and more focused on settlements than Palestinian violence. “For over an hour, Kerry obsessively dealt with settlements and barely touched upon the root of the conflict, Palestinian opposition to a Jewish state in any boundaries.” Netanyahu is correct. The Israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by the United States, or any other foreign nation.

The idea of a two state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is illogical, and unworkable, because it is unbiblical. If the United States wants to propose a Biblical solution to the situation then it is very simple. Israel should have as its stated goal, supported by the United States, that it intends to acquire, as their Divinely deeded territory, the land from the Nile river (which is mainly modern Egypt and Sudan) to the Euphrates (modern-day Iraq).

The Arabs cannot agree on how to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict because they are not united. This too is according to divine design. In Genesis 16:11-12 we read about Ishmael, the father of the Arab people. “And the angel of the Lord said unto her [Hagar], Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction. 12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”

The “wildness” of Ishmael, and his warring nature whereby “his hand will be against every man,” are two distinct characteristics of the Arab culture today for the bloodline of the prophetic utterance remains intact. The Arabs promote a culture of death by paying for young suicide bombers to kill as many Jews and Christians as possible, all to no avail. Such inhumane tactics have to be adopted because the Arabs cannot unite among themselves in Jihad against their common enemy, Israel. What many Arabs are willing to do is to hate Israel more than they love their children. So, they sacrifice their children to their bloodthirsty god, Allah. Any Palestinian that kills a Jew is officially financially rewarded with a monetary bounty.

It is all so very sad. So, the Biblical solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is this. Let the Arabs stop their murderous behavior in the name of Islam. Let Israel have the divinely deeded territory, which is the land from the Nile River (which is mainly modern Egypt and Sudan) to the Euphrates (modern-day Iraq).
