Chief Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat insisted on Saturday that earlier reports suggesting the Palestinians were willing to let Israel retain control of Jerusalem's Western Wall in a future peace agreement were false.
The London-based pan-Arab newspaper al-Hayat reported earlier in the day that PA leader Mahmoud Abbas had included in a proposal to US mediator George Mitchell continued Jewish control of the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City, as well as the Kotel, or Western Wall, the most sacred site in Judaism.
But Erekat told Israel Radio that the report was erroneous, and that the Palestinians still demand the full surrender of Jerusalem, including those parts sacred to Jews, in return for a peace deal.
The above article highlights what the Lord said through Ezekiel 2600 years ago. "Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:" Ezekiel 36:2. Today the enemies of Israel are saying that very thing, "the ancient high places are ours in possession:"
Someday, perhaps soon, the Lord will execute vengeance on the enemies of Israel. Ezekiel 36:5 warns of that event, “Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.” The Lord has His timetable, but could it be that the coming war between Israel, Hezbollah along with her allies Hamas, Syria and the Palestinians will see this judgment fall?
