Fear not Israel

Rebirth (coming soon) chronicles the UN's very first call to action: the proposal to separate Palestine into two states––one Jewish and one Arab. Below, Israel Alert has published an article stating that a similar proposal is being brought to the same assembly that made history on November 29, 1947 with resolution 181.

The Lord had made good on His promise to reestablish Israel and in Amos 9:14,15, He promised that the land 'would never again be uprooted'.  So do we stop praying because God has it covered? NEVER stop praying for peace in Israel––this is God's will that we intercede on behalf of His people and His will.

Israel is under mounting pressure to make a far-reaching offer to the Palestinians or face a UN vote welcoming the State of Palestine whose territory includes all of the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem.
Israel, seeing the prospect of even more hostile governments as its neighbors, is insisting on caution. It also wants to build in extensive long-term security guarantees in any two-state solution. "Does the world think it is going to force Israel to declare the 1967 lines and giving up Jerusalem as a basis for negotiation?" asked a top Israeli official. "That will never happen."

"Whatever we put forward has to be grounded in security arrangements because of what is going on regionally," said former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Zalman Shoval. "We are facing the rebirth of the eastern front as Iran grows strong. We have to secure the Jordan Valley. And no Israeli government is going to move tens of thousands of Israelis from their homes quickly."

Dave, this is so true and we defiantly need to continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I am thankful for someone like you getting the news and awareness out to as many who will take the time to stop and pay attention and then help to do something about it, even if it is only being able to pray about it. Good luck and keep up the good work.
