Palestinian Leader Pledges to Never Give Up Jerusalem



Notice a report today on the Palestinian President’s position on Jerusalem:

RAMALLAH, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday said that the Palestinians prefer to die than giving up Jerusalem.

“The principles that the various Palestinian national councils and Palestinian leaders have taken will never ever change,” Abbas told thousands of people who gathered at the Palestinian leadership’s headquarters in Ramallah.

“We say it very loudly: the first of these principles, that we are ready to die for, is Jerusalem, the capital of Palestine,” Abbas told the crowds that came gathered to welcome him after he returned from Egypt.

Israel has a similar position and claims that Jerusalem is its permanent capital.

There is also an interesting end-time prophecy related in Jerusalem that seems to be fulfilled regularly:

3 And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. (Zechariah 12:3)

The current conflict between the Palestinian and Israeli position on Jerusalem seems to be consistent with the following biblical prophecy:

2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled,
And the women ravished.
Half of the city shall go into captivity,
But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. (Zechariah 14:2, NKJV)

If half the city is Jewish and the other half not, then there would be a reason for only one half the city to go into captivity.

Perhaps I should add that the idea that Jerusalem needs to be partially “Catholic” is consistent with certain biblical as well as “Catholic prophecies”–some of which are mirror images of biblical ones (see Catholic Prophecies: Do They Mirror, Highlight, or Contradict Biblical Prophecies?)

There are several end time prophecies involving the nation that is now called Israel that should be quoted:

20 But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. (Luke 21:20)

15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. (Matthew 24:15-17)

22 Behold, the noise of the report has come, And a great commotion out of the north country, To make the cities of Judah desolate, a den of jackals. (Jeremiah 10:22)

6 Also the people of Judah and the people of Jerusalem
You have sold to the Greeks, That you may remove them far from their borders. (Joel 3:6)

Disaster is prophesied for the current nation known as Israel. And its surviving residents apparently will become slaves, apparently in lands controlled by northern peoples, like the Greece (note: the old Greek Empire included much of the old Roman Empire, hence lands other than Greece may end up with some of those people from modern Israel).  It is the Jewish portion of Jerusalem that will, according to various biblical prophecies, go into captivity.

The statements today from the Palestinian President support that the biblical idea of there being an enforced division of Jerusalem before the Jewish portion is desolated.
