Israel's Greatest Enemy

Source: Art Sadlier, Saturday May 1st 2010

This week, the intentions of the Obama administration are unfolding in a number of news reports.

Last week, Abbas urged the Obama administration to impose a solution to the Middle East conflict which would give his people an independent state, and rejected the idea of creating a state within temporary borders.

It has been reported that, US President Barack Obama told Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas that he was committed to seeing the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state within two years. Apparently, Obama promised Abbas that the United States would make great effort to help see the Palestinian goal achieved.

If such a promise was made or implied, the PA will not negotiate but only wait for Obama to deliver.  What the PA is demanding will mean the end of the State of Israel. They are not only demanding land but the right of millions of Palestinians to return to Israel proper. These Palestinians would defeat Israeli's at the ballot box, effectively terminating the State of Israel.
In a further anti-Israel move, Obama has told several European leaders, if Israeli-Palestinian talks remain stalemated into September or October, he will convene an international summit on achieving Mideast peace. In other words, if Abbas doesn't get all he wants the negotiations will be stalemated and an international conference will be convened to force Israel to surrender. If Obama has promised to help Abbas achieve his goals, the talks are certain to be stalemated. Only a total surrender by Israel would prevent a summit which would also give Abbas what he wants.

In an even more ominous report, Abbas told the state-run news agency Xinhua, that the Obama administration had promised him it would work to prevent any provocative Israeli moves during the negotiations.

In other words the US administration would not allow Israel to defend itself in case of an attack by its enemies. Implying, that the US would decide what Israel can do or not do if attacked. In other words, the Obama administration will put Israel down on the ground and hold her there while her enemies attack her. The man who holds you, while your enemies hit you is your greatest enemy.

In doing this, Obama has now openly and squarely placed himself as the friend of the Palestinians and the enemy of Israel. Obama has identified his administration on the side of Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran. While these enemies of Israel stockpile thousands of missiles which have much greater range and explosive power and add modern weapons of war to their arsenals, including nuclear weapons, Obama is threatening Israel if they take any action.

In yet another news item we read, Washington and Cairo are negotiating an agreement which would see the Middle East become a nuclear-free zone, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday. Of course Israel is the only Mideast country with nuclear weapons. Obama is now zeroing in on Israel's effective deterrent, which like other nuclear powers; Israel has managed in a responsible way. This is the number one item on the Arab wish list, and always has been. This would be the final nail in Israel's coffin, the one thing that prevents her from being destroyed in a massive attack. Obama seems to be diabolical and relentless in his determination to eliminate Israel and to please the Arab world.

The message of the prophets concerning Israel in the last days is being fulfilled exactly as recorded. In Deuteronomy 23:9 we read of Israel, "...lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations." Israel is totally alone and isolated today, the nations of the world are fully set against her.

The present scenario is leading to the fulfillment of Joel 3:2, "I will gather all nations, and will 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.”

This will be the climax of man's day, as the Lord terminates the power and authority of the nations. At that time Christ will come and set up His Kingdom which will be an eternal kingdom of righteousness and equity.

In the meantime, America is positioning itself to come under judgment of God, what a judgment it will be.
