People who subscribe to the picture portrayed by the media, that the Palestinians are cruelly oppressed and denied possession of their native land, stolen from them by an invading Israeli army, either don’t know, or don’t want to acknowledge, the true history.

1. The West Bank is part of ancient Israel known as the Judea and Samaria, Jacob’s twelve tribes, and contains most of Israel’s mountains with the following Bible cities of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Bethany, Hebron, Ai, Bethel, Shilo and Shechem.

2. Almighty God says to the mountains of Israel … the West Bank

“And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.” (Ezekiel 36:11-12)

3. Almighty God’s promise to Abraham 3,900 years ago “unto thy seed have I given this land” (Genesis 15:18) was unconditional, everlasting and specific.

Indeed …

“In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:” (Genesis 15:18) … this includes Gaza and the West Bank.

Furthermore, God says …

“Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.” (Ezekiel 11:17)

4. Israel is not free to give or sell or give the land of their inheritance as the land belongs to the LORD as stated …

“The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; …” (Leviticus 25:23).

This means there will be no Two State solution … ever!

5. For 400 years from 1517 to 1917, the land under Turkish control, was thoroughly destroyed with a tree tax … such that everyone cut them down.

This meant the land of Israel was devastatingly barren! The Arabs didn’t want it!

6. Unhindered by borders, Arabs being nomadic, were not natives of Palestine, as for thousands of years they roamed over 5,000,000 square miles in the Middle East and Africa finding pasture for their flocks.

7. From the mid 1800’s until 1948 when Israel became a nation, jobs were created by the Jews which drew Arabs into Israel. In 1864, the largest group of residents in Jerusalem were Jews. The majority of Arabs had come from other lands … France, Greece, Morocco, Egypt, Cyprus, Algeria, Australia, India and Iraq to name a few.

8. The reasons that Sudan, Iran, Libya and Turkey will join Russia and the Ukraine to attack Israel in the first half of the seven year tribulation are as follows …

Libya  - “The battle with Israel must be such that after it, Israel will cease to exist”

Iran – armed to the teeth, Iran is just itching to attack and exterminate Israel after the Christian rapture

Turkey – want to reclaim their mandate over Israel that they had for 400 years from 1517 to 1917

Sudan – Sudan being a failed, chaotic and corrupt state, bows to the dominance of Russia and their very close ties. In 2017 Russia and Sudan agree to set up a naval base on the Red Sea. Russia is plundering Sudan’s gold to support Putin’s war in Ukraine. Russian universities are a popular destination for Sudanese students.

9. If the Australian Aborigine wants to go back 60,000 years (which is a lie as the earth is only about 6,000 years old) as the rightful owner of Australia (which they aren’t), then Israel can legally and truthfully, go back 5,900 years to being the rightful owner of the land of the 12 twelve tribes.

Furthermore, this is China’s current argument over the Philippine nation and their seas and water ways, saying that China owned them many, many centuries ago.

10. For many years, no self-respecting Moslem would call themselves a Palestinian for love nor money. Why? Palestine is an English name derived from the Roman name of Palestina. When the Romans captured Judea in the 1st century, they called it Syria Palestina … to erase any Jewish connection to the land and to shame and insult the Jews, by using name derived from the Philistines, who were Israel’s ancient enemies during the time of King David and King Saul.

11. God’s end game is this … to restore the land to Israel from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates and is stated as follows …

“… Thus saith the Lord GOD; I DO NOT THIS FOR YOUR SAKES, O house of Israel, but FOR MINE HOLY NAME'S SAKE … and THE HEATHEN SHALL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD …” (Ezekiel 36:22-23)

and that

“… YE  (ISRAEL) SHALL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD.” (Ezekiel 36:11) … spoken 59 times in the Book of Ezekiel.

1. They can have 10 million peace conferences … all to no avail

2.The land of Israel is not for anyone to sell or divide up … it is God’s land for the Jews. 

3. It’s called prophecy … it can’t be changed … it’s in the King James Bible!
