JD: There is that continuing conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians however the two factions of the body politic of the Palestinians, Fatah and Hamas saying they need to unite for the sake of a Palestinian state. If they do come back together do you believe there could be a Palestinian state?
DD: Well Jimmy there have been open talks going on as there have been for many years really. There’s been a renewal of those in recent months with the announcement that there would be Palestinian elections which Abbas canceled after the opinion polls showed clearly that Hamas would win those elections. We’ve talked about the fact that subsequent polls after the short 11 day war in early June showed that Hamas is more popular then ever and they would absolutely trounce the Fatah party in Palestinian elections if they were indeed held.
So Hamas is becoming more and more powerful and more and more popular on the Palestinian street. The PLO knows that. If they want to remain, if they want to remain in power at all apparently you have to really get serious about talking with Hamas and recognizing their leading position. But of course as such a government is formed it kills the peace process, whatever is left of it anyway off entire basically since Hamas has not changed its charter call for Israel’s complete destruction and they make that clear all the time. Heavily supported by Iran. So it would make a Palestinian state more possible in theory but less likely in reality because the Israeli’s would do everything they could and will do everything they can to stop a Palestinian state headed by this radical movement that wants Israel’s destruction. They’ll just never allow that to happen Jimmy.
JD: David Dolan reporting what could happen if the two factions of the Palestinian people unite.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been going on for over 4,000 years since the time of Esau and Jacob in their mother’s womb, that’s Genesis 25:22 & 23. In recent years however the struggle has continued and now has become a struggle between the two factions of the Palestinian body politic, Hamas and Fatah. Both factions want to destroy the Jewish state of Israel and in fact that threat is closer than it has ever been, that’s Ezekiel 35.
