President Donald Trump has shaken the establishment Middle East foreign policy wonks to the core, first by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and now by threatening to cut off US aid to the Palestinian Authority. Trump tweeted “we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel…but with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?” While other presidents have accelerated prophecy by aiding and abetting the antichrist position, Trump is doing it by supporting Israel.
Just to put it in perspective, in 2016 the Palestinian Authority claimed on the Voice of Palestine radio that it received no money from the US. The State Department, however, confirmed that $357 million was given in direct aid, and another $355 million to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees. Altogether US taxpayers gave the Palestinian Authority $712 million. Europe and other nations also gave hundreds of millions. President George W. Bush legitimized the Palestinian Authority (formerly the Palestinian Liberation Organization, a terrorist group) by forcing elections in 2006, of which the US paid an additional $2.3 million. Members of the terrorist groups Hamas and Fatah were elected.
The Palestinian Authority’s sole purpose is the annihilation of Israel. It is always begging for money, yet they have billions from the US and Europe to fund missiles and bombs against the citizens of Israel. Sad truth is the slippery slope of US support for these terrorists began under President Carter’s 1979 Camp David Accords. President Reagan, however, stood firm on September 1, 1982 when he said, “The United States will not support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza.” President Clinton, who promoted the Oslo accords with terrorist Yassir Arafat, was the first to hint at US approval of a Palestinian state. President George W. Bush was the first to mouth the words. And the immediate past “president” accelerated all things anti-Israel.
Trump, like Reagan, is breaking from the traditional globalist foreign policy of paying the terrorists with hopes of Middle East peace. The Palestinian Authority website once stated that its goal was to “drive the Zionist pigs into the sea.” Prior to elections, it was taken down and cleaned up. Trump, in his own way, is accelerating end time prophecy by ending appeasement of terrorists and strengthening the foundation of Israel. This agitates the Islamic world, the antichrist system, and quickens the enemies of God. Psalm 122:6 says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you.” It’s also important to keep in mind the words of Jesus in Matthew 24:4, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” In this case, the media and the globalists criticizing Trump are not only deceiving, but are themselves deceived.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
