Blog Note Preface: For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3). This verse is believed by eschatologists to be a key verse that describes a period of time when Israel signs a worldwide peace or security agreement that is confirmed or verified by the antichrist. Other Biblical verses describe this Jewish agreement as a covenant with death. This Israel security agreement event for ‘peace and safety’ is also believed to be one of the catalysts initiating the Tribulation period on earth. The world today is clamoring for a ‘two-state’ solution between the Jews and the Palestinians regarding the status and geography of Jerusalem. The Bible is clear that a large portion of land in the Middle East was given and promised to the Jews by God, including the current land under contention internationally. The Jews currently do not occupy any significant amount of land that was originally promised and given to them by God.
Daniel 9:27 … And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Isaiah 28:15 … Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
Isaiah 28:18 … And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. End of note.
TOP PALESTINIAN ADVISER ADMITS CONFLICT’S ALL ABOUT ISLAM
WND. October 11, 2018
No negotiating ‘total destruction’ of ‘children of Israel’
The Palestinian Authority and its allies long have insisted that the conflict in the Middle East boils down to a dispute over land. If Israel would be willing to give up certain land and accept particular demands, peace could be achieved at last.
But a top adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has made it clear that Islam and its objective to establish the rule of Shariah, not only in the region but over the entire world, is at the heart of the matter. Mahmoud Al-Habbash, regarded at the PA’s most important religious figure, said the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis is not a political conflict but a “battle” between Islam and “the culture of Satan.”
Robert Spencer, the author of the newly published “The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS,” writes on his Jihad Watch blog that history shows the “enemies of Islam” are non-Muslims “who refuse to accept the hegemony of Sharia and the second-class status that acceptance would entail for them.”
The Quran teaches in 9:29, points out Spencer, that non-Muslims must be warred against and subjugated. “Those who think that the Israeli/”Palestinian” conflict will be solved through negotiations should heed the words of Mahmoud Al-Habbash,” Spencer said. “But they won’t.”
Palestinian Media Watch, which provided a translation of Habbash’s statement on video, said the cleric “continues to tell Palestinians that the conflict with Israel is an uncompromising religious war for Islam against Israel and Jews.” Appointed by Abbas as his personal adviser on Islam and the PA’s supreme Shariah judge, Habbash spoke of “the battle of history between Islam and the enemies of Islam.”
Israelis and Jews are the “enemies of Islam,” “enemies of Muslims,” have a “culture of Satan” and represent “evil,” he said. Moreover, he said the current battle is not just another battle on behalf of Islam but the ultimate battle described in the Quran as the “final promise,” leading to the destruction of the “children of Israel.” PMW pointed out Habbash is preaching to a religious Palestinian population, with polls consistently finding that 95 percent of Palestinians say religion is “important” for them.
“Jerusalem is the arena of conflict between us and the colonialist project (Israel),” the cleric said. “Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque apparently is the heading for the eruption of the conflict and the battle of history between Islam and the enemies of Islam; between the Muslims and the enemies of Muslims; between the Islamic culture in all its splendor and human glory and the culture of Satan attempting to establish oppression and aggression at the expense of the culture of truth and goodness,” Habbash said.
He asserted the mosque is “decreed to be the arena of the battle between good and evil.” “This mosque and this wonderful city – the city of history, religion and culture, Jerusalem – are decreed to be the heading of the conflict,” he said. He said he and many others see Jerusalem “as the first step, as the spark of the battle of the ‘final promise.’” PMW noted that the “final promise” is mentioned in the Quran in Sura 17 where Allah addresses the Jews as “the children of Israel.” Some interpret the “final promise” as a battle that took place in the past. But Habbash said he and others see it as a future conflict in which Jews experience “[total] destruction.” The battle with Israel today over Jerusalem, the cleric said, is “the spark of the battle,” meaning, the beginning of the war of destruction.”
