Peace- Peace and There is no Peace

Source: Art Sadlier, Saturday August 1st 2009

There is a massive deception going on in our world today! The whole world is focused on bringing about peace in the mid-east, which they seem to believe will bring about world peace.  All nations of the world are fixated on pressuring Israel to allow the Palestinians to take possession of the land God has promised to them and has miraculously returned to them in 1947 and 1967. We need to give the Palestinians what they so desperately need and want, the land of Israel, if they get that the world will suddenly become a utopia of peace and prosperity.
That is all a facade. When you peel back the cover and find what the Muslim world really wants it has no relationship to the drive of the nations of the world to divide the land of Israel. I believe that there are some among the leaders of the nations that are anti-semitic, they hate Israel, perhaps they do not even know why they have this hatred in their hearts, but it is motivating them. I believe there are some leaders who are just plain deceived, they are deceived into believing that Israel has no claim on the land of Israel. Jesus said that a mark of the last days would be deception; we are seeing this deception now sweeping over the whole world.
A leading member of the ruling Palestinian faction said in a televised interview recently, "Those who believe the land- for-peace process will bring an end to the bloodshed between Arabs and Israel’s are deluding themselves".
It seems some Palestinians were becoming worried that increasingly active American involvement would bring the war against Israel to an end before they had a chance to destroy the Jewish state.

Kifah Radaydeh, deputy head of the Jerusalem chapter of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas faction, speaking on Palestinian TV, in seeking to reassure them said. “It has been said that we are negotiating for peace, but our goal has never been peace. Peace is a means; the goal is Palestine". Raaydeh made it clear that by "Palestine" she meant all of the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea by admitting that when the time is right, Fatah will fully rejoin the campaign of violence against Israel.

In March, Mohammed Dahlan, a top advisor to Abbas, said on Palestinian TV. “I want to say for the thousandth time, in my own name and in the name of all my fellow members of the Fatah movement: We do not demand that Hamas recognize Israel. On the contrary, we demand that Hamas not recognize Israel, because Fatah does not recognize Israel, even today.

On July 24, senior members of Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah announced that their group will never recognize Israel, and will continue to call for war against Israel. "Fatah does not recognize Israel's right to exist, nor have we ever asked others to do so."  They went on to say, not only will Fatah never recognize, but it will never end its call for armed struggle against Israel, let those who are deluding themselves hear: this will never happen."

In spite of the clear, repeated statements by Palestinian leaders, the world in its blindness and deception continues to demand that Israel allow her avowed enemies to crowd in around her and have an advantageous position to defeat her.

One of the cornerstones of the Arab, so called peace initiative, is the “right of return," which Obama has endorsed when he advocated the Saudi Peace plan. The PA and the Arab world are demanding the right of return to Israel proper for millions of Palestinians, who fled Israel during the war of Israel's independence, in 1947.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stated that the demand for the "right of return" reflects the Arab will to destroy Israel after signing a peace accord with it. It seems to escape the minds of the leaders of America and the EU that this multitude of returning Palestinians would simply out vote the Israel’s at the ballot box and Israel would be no more.
For over sixty years Israel has seemingly lived on the edge of extinction. Contrary to those who mistakenly believe in replacement theology, there will always be an Israel, the nations of the world, including the Obama administration, will never destroy Israel. God will use the nations and the antichrist to bring Israel through the fire, but when He has refined her she will come forth as gold.
In Zechariah 13:9, we have the climax of God's dealing with Israel. "And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and and I will hear them: I will say, it is my people: and they shall say, the Lord is my God."

Mr. Obama, Mr. Harper and all other world leaders, you are on a collision course with the God of Israel. There is a solemn warning in Joel 3:2, "I will also gather all nations, and bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead (judge) with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land."
