Road to Psalm 83? Feiglin Outlines Five-Step 'Jewish Sovereignty' Plan
Rapture Forum Staff: Chris
In what could be a sign of the future direction that Israel could take given that the so called "peace talks" with the Palestinians have fizzled out, the Israel National News is reporting that Deputy Knesset Chairman MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) presented his plan for "Jewish Sovereignty" absent a peace deal with the Palestinians. The Israel National News reports:
Deputy Knesset Chairman MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) outlined his national plan while in Toronto last Tuesday for Israeli Independence Day, speaking at an event sponsored by the Jewish Defense League and Toronto Zionist Council.
Feiglin called for reconnecting the young generation with the knowledge that it is part of a long historical chain from the days of the Patriarch Abraham, and that it is a "light unto the nations" not just in the field of hi-tech, but rather in terms of the values and spiritual message it has for humanity, reports Shalom Toronto.
The "Jewish Sovereignty" plan presented by Feiglin basically consists of restoring Jewish rule to the entire land of Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. This sould include the entire "West Bank" as it is known today. The Feiglin plan basically called for:
The first step involves the annexation of all of Judea and Samaria, and the application of full Jewish sovereignty in the area. As part of the move, there would be no security forces in Israel other than the IDF and the Israeli police, and each Arab town would have an Israeli police station with an Israeli flag in it. Feiglin clarified that "Jewish sovereignty" meant that there would be no other national or religious sovereignty on any part of the land of Israel.
In the second step, all Arab residents of Judea and Samaria who accept that the land of Israel belongs to the Jewish nation alone, acknowledge Jewish sovereingty and promise not to declare war on Israel, would be given the option of staying in their homes with full rights, except for national and political rights. "The negation of the right to vote for those who declared war is not in the definition of apartheid," said Feiglin.
In the third step, Arab residents would be encouraged to leave Israel to establish their lives elsewhere. The financial means to encourage such a transfer would come from the money currently supporting Israel's massive counter-terror security institution. According to Feiglin, the Arabs in Judea and Samaria are currently unable to sell their homes out of fear that they will be murdered by their brothers, a scenario that would still be possible after Jewish sovereignty was declared, thereby making the financial support necessary.
The fourth step would see a steep rise in building in Judea and Samaria to allow the absorption of Jewish immigrants from all over the world, and in the fifth and final step, a campaign would encourage Jews to immigrate to Israel.
As we can see from the above Feiglin plan, this will not go over well with Israel's Islamic neighbors. I am thinking that should the "unity" government between Hamas and Fatah materialize that we could see more calls for plans like Feiglins in the future.
The key to me is what happens with Hamas and Fatah. Right now there is a lot of time between now and the end of May when a so called "unity" government is supposed to be formed. Alot can happen in the space of a few weeks. However, it appears to me that if the "unity" government does go through Israel will not be able to negotiate with the Palestinians as Israel has made it abundantly clear that they will not negotiate with Hamas or any Palestinian government that includes Hamas.
Without a Palestinian partner, Israel is only left with the option to move forward on developing the land of Israel. This in turn could possibly lead to what I am calling the "Road to Pslam 83". Movement by Israel to turn away from the "two-state" solution will unfortunately lead to more violence in the future. But Israel will have no choice but to defend itself and defend itself they shall.
This violence that could result from Israel moving away from the "two-state" solution to a "one-state" solution could be just what it takes to initiate the Psalm 83 conflict. This conflict would involve Israel and it's immediate neighboring enemies in what is seen as an attempt to destroy Israel. The Bible tells us that this will not happen as Israel will prove to be victorious over these enemies.
And this in turn could move us even closer to the "Gog/Magog" conflict of Ezekiel 38-39. While we do not know all the details of the future, the Bible does afford us the luxury of knowing that whatever happens in the future Israel will remain in the promised land and will survive her enemies attempts to destroy her. I encourage everyone reading this to stay sober and watching as the Bible prophecy puzzle pieces are placed into position for the final acts of this age. As we move closer and closer to the coming 7 year Tribulation period, we need to keep looking up and remember that our redemption is drawing nigh!
