All Eyes on Jerusalem

What a mess.  The United Nations is completely out of control.  The Palestinian Authority through their upcoming unilateral declaration of statehood at the United Nations is attempting to ignore the previously binding United Nations resolutions that require negotiations between the Arab world and Israel with regard to any specific border issues.  Not surprisingly, the Palestinian Arab Leadership is attempting to declare indefensible borders for the nation of Israel with the possible blessing of the General Assembly of the United Nations without any input/negotiation with Israel.  Why is this not surprising?  Because to this day, the representatives of the Palestinian Arabs do not recognize the existence of the state of Israel.  Can you imagine the world pressuring the United States to negotiate the specifics of a border with Mexico when Mexico was adamant that the United States did not exist?  Maybe, just maybe Israel sees the writing on the wall that the Arab world does not want the Jewish nation to exist!  If that is true, what a great strategy by the Palestinian Arabs to ignore negotiations with Israel and declare borders that will lead to the ultimate destruction of Israel.  And if that seems “extreme” let’s remember our history and that the surrounding Arab nations attempted to achieve that destruction in 1948, 1967, and 1973.  History teaches us that we don't learn from what history teaches us.  Here is a quick 5 minute video to help explain the situation.  Now is the time to pray for the peace of Jerusalem!  Psalm 122:6
