All Of A Sudden, There Is A Tremendous Amount Of Political Chatter About Creating A Palestinian State In The Middle East

For decades, U.S. presidents have dreamed of being able to bring “peace” to the Middle East by brokering a comprehensive peace deal that includes a “two-state solution”, but up to this point nobody has been able to pull off that seemingly impossible goal.  Over the years, just getting the Israelis and Palestinians to sit down together at the same negotiating table has proven to be extremely challenging, and there were no direct talks of any substance at all during Trump’s four years in the White House.  But now Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leaders both seem open to negotiations, and the Biden administration has made it exceedingly clear that there will be a major push for a “two-state solution” in the near future.  This is extremely troubling, because it would be a colossal error for the U.S. to broker a deal that would lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state in the Middle East.

A Biden presidency would “resurrect” hopes for a Palestinian state

For the past four years, the Palestinians have been deeply frustrated with the White House.  The U.S. embassy in Israel was moved to Jerusalem, the Palestinian mission in Washington D.C. was shut down, and financial aid to the Palestinians was reduced.  Last January, President Trump introduced his plan for a two-state solution, but it was immediately rejected by the Palestinians.  Everyone knows that the Palestinians absolutely hate Trump and they were never going to agree to any deal that involved him.  So that meant that as long as Trump was in the White House, it was extremely unlikely that we would see a Palestinian state.

The “Peace Agreement” That Israel Just Signed Is Another Huge Step Toward A Palestinian State

The historic agreement that Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain just signed is being hailed as a major leap toward lasting peace in the Middle East.  But the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are not exactly the major players in the region, and what Israel had to give up in order to get these two Arab nations to “normalize relations” has a lot of people scratching their heads.  First of all, annexation of any territory in Judea and Samaria has now been put on hold indefinitely.  But much more importantly, the treaty that was just signed commits Israel to “a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict”, and obviously a “negotiated solution” would involve the creation of a Palestinian state.

Is The Stunning Peace Deal Between Israel And The UAE A Prelude To Formally Dividing The Land Of Israel?

Last week’s surprise announcement of a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates caught just about everyone by surprise.  I hadn’t heard anything about a potential deal in the works, and the mainstream media in the western world was completely blindsided by the deal.  But this has become Israel’s pattern in recent decades.  The Oslo Accords, Israel’s peace deal with Jordan and other agreements were negotiated under a cloak of total secrecy because officials didn’t want public sentiment to potentially destroy negotiations.  And there could potentially be other “peace deals” in the works right now that we don’t know anything about.

Does A Series Of “Mystery Explosions” Inside Iran Mean That The Next Big Middle East War Is About To Begin?

Over the past several weeks, a series of “mystery explosions” has happened at very strategically sensitive locations inside Iran, and it has become obvious that what we are witnessing is not just a bunch of random accidents.  For years, the Israeli government has pledged that the Iranians will never be allowed to develop nuclear weapons, and several of the sites where the mystery explosions have taken place have direct connections to Iran’s nuclear program.  For example, there was a very large explosion at Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment facility on July 2nd, and it is being reported that some officials believe that this explosion was caused by a “powerful bomb”.  The following comes from the Jerusalem Post(Read More...)

Rumors Of Wars: China, India, North Korea, South Korea, Israel And Turkey All Move Toward War

As if we didn’t have enough already going on in 2020, now we are facing the possibility that several regional wars may erupt.  China and India had both been pouring troops into a disputed border region, and now there has been an incident where they were actually killing each other.  On the Korean peninsula, North Korea just blew up “a joint liaison office” that it had used for talks with the South Korean government.  And in the Middle East, Turkey is warning of grave consequences if Israel goes ahead with a plan to annex portions of Judea and Samaria.  If a major regional war erupts at even one of these flashpoints, it will be another devastating blow for a global economy that is already imploding, and there is a very strong probability that the U.S. and other major western powers could be drawn into the conflict.

The Big War Between Israel And Her Enemies Could Begin As Soon As July 1st

The level of tension in the Middle East is sky high right now, and it is about to go even higher.  On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he would move ahead with a plan to annex portions of the West Bank in the months ahead. The coalition agreement that he reached with Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz allows him to submit annexation for a vote as early as July, and if Netanyahu is actually going to do this it will almost certainly happen before the U.S. election in November.  The Trump administration is prepared to support Israel’s annexation under certain conditions, but a Biden administration would be 100 percent opposed to such a move.  So Netanyahu realizes that this opportunity may never come again, and he is fully prepared to seize the moment.  But of course if Israel does annex large portions of the West Bank, that could easily spark a huge regional war.
