One-State Solution?

The map hanging next to the mirror doesn’t look like a two-state solution to me.
It looks like a one-state solution.


Am I surprised? – In November of 2005 the UN displayed a map of Palestine without the country of Israel. – In April 2006 the newly-installed Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar reiterated Hamas’s desire to eliminate Israel and replace it with an Islamic state: “I dream of hanging a huge map of the world on the wall at my Gaza home which does not show Israel on it,” Zahar said in the interview. “I hope that our dream to have our independent state on all historic Palestine (will materialize).”

This dream, he added, “will become real one day. I’m certain of this because there is no place for the state of Israel on this land.”

Just one day after the Annapolis conference at which the PA recognized the State of Israel’s right to exist in peace and security, the PA’s official television station screened a map that shows a Palestinian state in place of Israel.

G-D proclaimed his plan for Israel a long time ago. It is also a one-state solution, except that the name of the state will be Israel and not Palestine. (Genesis 32:29)

We are living in a special time in history! It is a time when G-D is fulfilling His Word to Israel in the sight of the whole earth. He is bringing the Jewish people back to Israel—over one million in the past 15 years. We are seeing Bible prophecy being fulfilled with our own eyes.

From the ashes of the Holocaust, G-D breathed life into the dry bones (Ezekiel 37) and began to revive and restore the Jewish people—to life and to their ancient homeland, Israel. On May 14, 1948, the modern State of Israel was born. Today the Almighty is showing the world that He is G-D, – and the establishment of the State of Israel and the return of the Jewish people is one of the primary ways He is proving Himself to the world.

He has a glorious plan for His people Israel: “For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all the countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people and I will be your God” (Ezekiel 36:24–28).

Remember, what we are witnessing is all about G-D showing the world that He is faithful and keeps His Word. It is His plan for the nations to recognize the Almighty as they see Him fulfill His promises to Israel.

This is not an easy time for Israel. Scripture calls upon us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. – You see, there is a G-D in Heaven and He has not abandoned Israel. He will see to it that His Word will come to pass. Nothing will stop His purpose – absolutely nothing. We can rejoice knowing that He is in control!

One day soon the Moshiach will bring peace. Israel’s neighbors will live in harmony and prosperity with Israel, as G-D will rule and reign from Jerusalem.

Shalom – Lilo
