Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he was prepared to make compromises to achieve peace but he rejected President Barack Obama's proposal that Israel return to 1967 borders.
There's nothing like a coincidence, if you believe in such things, to stir up some controversy!
A few weeks ago, I was stunned that Israel would allow the Iranian reactor in Bushehr to begin loading. However, today's report in the UK Guardian helps explain why Israel has not yet struck the nuclear plant.
One key development that has not been reported is the fact that the Palestinians demand a “territorial link” connecting the West Bank and Gaza. How does this development fit into Biblical prophecy?
Is peace possible without security? Netanyahu said last week, "security is the foundation of peace. Without it, peace will unravel. With it, peace can be stable and enduring."
As I reviewed the positions on both sides of the conflict, one cannot even begin to fathom how Netanyahu and Abbas will ever come to a peace agreement.
Today, I want to cover one major point of contention in the negotiations: the legitimacy of a homeland for the Jews.
When Iran along with the Russians said they had loaded fuel into the reactor this past Saturday, I can honestly say I was shocked! In recent history, Israel prevented the Iraqi and Syrian reactors from even being started, however Israel allowed the reactor in Iran to receive fuel and within a few weeks it will become fully operational. History did not repeat itself this weekend!
