    "The US president was met by a delegation of Israeli leaders including acting Prime Minister Yair Lapid, alternate Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and President Isaac Herzog. Mr Biden kept his remarks brief: describing himself as a Zionist, he said that in the long term, a Palestinian state was the best option for peace in the region.

    This view has put his administration at odds with an array of influential Israeli nationalist parties and was met by the stony faces of the leaders in attendance. Biden "... will also head to the occupied West Bank to discuss aid to Palestinians during meetings with Palestinian Authority leaders who want the US to commit to pressuring Israel to halt settlement expansion."

    Biden: ... 'We'll discuss my continued support — even though I know it's not in the near term — a two-state solution that remains in my view the best way to ensure a future of equal measure of freedom, prosperity and democracy for Israelis and Palestinians alike.'" … or-israel/

    "The "one-state solution" refers to a resolution of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict through the creation of a unitary, federal or confederate Israeli-Palestinian state, which would encompass all of the present territory of Israel, the West Bank including East Jerusalem, and possibly the Gaza Strip and Golan Heights. Depending on various points of view, a one-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict is presented as a situation in which Israel would ostensibly lose its character as a Jewish state and the Palestinians would fail to achieve their national independence within a two-state solution or, alternatively, as the best, most just, and only way to resolve the Israeli–Palestinian conflict.

    Support for a one-state solution is increasing as Palestinians, frustrated by lack of progress in negotiations aiming to establish the two-state solution, increasingly see the one-state solution as an alternative way forward. In April 2016, then-U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said that because of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's policy of steady expansion of settlements, an eventual "one-state reality" with Israeli, Jews no longer in the majority was the likely outcome.

    In other words: Vice President Joe Biden had said, "Because of Netanyahu's policy of steady expansion of settlements (into Palestine,) an eventual "one-state reality" with Israeli, with Jews no longer in the majority, is the likely outcome."

    Who would be the majority?
    What does "Joe Biden" REALLY want?
    Are Arabs going to take over both countries and finally unify them? … e-minister

    The Trump peace plan, officially titled "Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People", was a proposal by the Trump administration to resolve the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. President Donald Trump formally unveiled the plan in a White House press conference alongside Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu on 28 January 2020. The plan had been delayed by two years and previously rejected by the Palestinians, who were not invited to the meeting. … di-arabia/

    "The Trump Peace Plan is called by its proponents

    'the deal of the century,' phrasing used by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a joint press conference with Donald Trump announcing the plan.

    Critics of the proposal were quick to ring changes on the term.

    Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas reacted immediately with a riposte that it was the 'slap of the century'.

    The secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organization Saeb Erekat tweeted that it would be known as the
    'fraud of the century'.

    The Economist called it the
    'steal of the century'.

    In the aftermath of Israel walking back its initial pledge of "immediate annexation", a Haaretz commentator wrote of the
    'joke of the century.' "

    "Theodor Herzl was the founder of the Modern Zionist movement. In his 1896 pamphlet Der Judenstaat, he envisioned the founding of a future independent Jewish state during the 20th century. Zionism is a nationalist movement that espouses the establishment of, and support for a homeland for the Jewish people centered in the area roughly corresponding to the Land of Israel, the region of Palestine, Canaan, or the Holy Land, on the basis of a long Jewish connection and attachment to that land."


    "In reality the proposed Jewish state was to be a bi-national one, simply because the Arab Palestinians constituted approximately half the population and owned much more land than the Jews. The fact that the resolution created a Jewish state, entailed a growing Jewish population and expansion of the Jewish share of land, yet it would not create a radical shift in the general situation. Demographically, the Arab Palestinians, who became Israeli citizens after 1948 made up 16 percent of the population of the newly established state. Half a century later, even after consecutive Israeli governments' efforts to modify the equation through Jewish immigration to Israel and encouraging Jews to have large families, this minority (Arab Palestinians in Israel) has maintained the same level.
    One of the major factors of the partition resolution for the proposed Jewish state was that it accorded more or less equal rights to both Jews and Palestinians. Part II of the resolution, entitled Religious and Minority Rights, stated the following:
    1) Freedom of conscience and the free exercise of all forms of worship [...] shall be ensured to all.
    2) No discrimination of any kind shall be made between inhabitants on the ground of race, religion, language or gender.
    3) All persons within the jurisdiction of the State shall be entitled to equal protection by the law.
    4) The family law and personal statutes of the various minorities and their religious interests, including endowments, shall be respected.
    5) The state shall ensure adequate primary and secondary education for the Arab ... minority ... in its own language and cultural traditions.
    6) No restriction shall be imposed on the free use by any citizen of the state on any language ... in commerce, in religion, in the press or in publications of any kind.
    7) No expropriation of land owned by an Arab in the Jewish State ... shall be allowed, except for public purposes.
    8) Palestinian citizens ... shall, upon recognition of independence, become citizens of the State in which they are resident and enjoy full civil and political rights." … erspective

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been named the kingdom’s prime minister in a cabinet reshuffle ordered by King Salman, according to a royal decree published by the official Saudi Press Agency on Tuesday. (Yesterday! 9/28/22)

    Prince Mohammed is already de facto ruler of the world’s largest oil exporter, and the appointment formalises his role as leader of the kingdom’s government. … di-arabia/

    Armageddon ! ! ! !
    “At the very moment of the Second Coming of our Lord, ‘all nations’ shall be gathered ‘against Jerusalem to battle’ (Zech. 11; 12; 13; 14), and the battle of Armageddon (obviously covering the entire area from Jerusalem to Megiddo, and perhaps more) will be in progress. As John expressed it, ‘the kings of the earth and of the whole world’ will be gathered ‘to the battle of that great day of God Almighty, … into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.’ Then Christ will ‘come as a thief,’ meaning unexpectedly, and the dramatic upheavals promised to accompany his return will take place. (Rev. 16:14–21.)

    "Antichrist, the polar opposite and ultimate enemy of Christ. According to Christian tradition, he will reign terribly in the period prior to the Last Judgment." Some have suggested Biden is the Antichrist. Some say the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia is.

    Apparently neither.

      Having gone through britannica, biden, nor putin is the antichrist. But the opposer will probably come from the East, or the South. We wouldn't know who he is at the moment.                                    One thing very clear is that he'll arise within the church.

          Miebakagh57posted 20 months agoin reply to this

          Any church that professed Christ.                                The anti-christ, or opposer isn't an outside, but a church-insider. The entire Epistle of John depicted it clearly.

    I think we are okay. The vote is secure and some wonderful person will become president after Biden. Our financial situation will recover and our children will thrive in this beautiful country which the people of the land will continue to cherish. The political parties will realize how they compliment each other, listen to each other and balance the other's overthinking and biases. And that's how it has to be.

    Meanwhile, in recent news: (September 29, 2022 at 4:09 PM)

    "The US is quietly pressuring Israel to limit academic and research ties with China, over fears Beijing could access military technology through “dual-use” research efforts, sources here tell Breaking Defense.

    The move comes as Israel is moving to create stronger bonds with Chinese research institutes, including an agreement launched last year specifically 'to attract excellent Chinese students' to come study in Israel.

    Soft pressure began over the summer, when President Joe Biden visited Israel, but has intensified recently to what one Ministry of Defense source described as a 'request that cannot be rejected.' The goal from DC, the Israeli sources said, is to minimize, or if possible cut altogether, cooperation between Israeli and Chinese research organizations. … -concerns/

    China and Israel have developed close strategic military links with each other. Bilateral military relations have evolved from an initial Chinese policy of secret non-official ties to a close strategic partnership with the modern and militarily powerful Israel.[147] Israel and China began extensive military cooperation as early as the 1980s, even though no formal diplomatic relations existed. Israel has provided China with military assistance, expertise and technology. According to a report from the United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission, "Israel ranks second only to Russia as a weapons system provider to China and as a conduit for sophisticated cutting-edge military technology, followed by France and Germany." Israel was ready to sell China the Phalcon, an Israeli airborne early-warning radar system (AWACS), until the United States forced it to cancel the deal. Some estimate that Israel sold arms worth US$4 billion to China in this period. China has looked to Israel for the arms and military technology it cannot acquire from the United States and Russia. Israel is now China's second-largest foreign supplier of arms after Russia. China has purchased a wide array of military equipment and technology, including communications satellites. China is a vital market for Israel's aerospace and defense industry. Due to Israel's recognition of China, Israel has also limited its cooperation with Taiwan in order to foster closer ties with Mainland China. … _of_Israel

    "On Wednesday, four Palestinians were killed and 44 wounded during an Israeli military raid in the northern West Bank town of Jenin. It was the deadliest episode since Israel launched its crackdown earlier this year.

    Israel has been conducting nightly arrest raids, primarily in the northern West Bank, since a series of deadly Palestinian attacks in Israel last spring.

    Israel says most of the dead have been wanted militants who opened fire, or youths who threw firebombs or stones at soldiers entering their neighbourhoods." … li-troops/

    or ... "The view of Antichrist as a diabolical institution is also reflected to some extent in the superstition that credit cards and electronic bar codes mysteriously mark innocent people with Antichrist’s sign, the number 666 (Revelation 13:18)."


    This is actually a pretty interesting article.

    Thanks for your input, Mr. M.
