Palestinian Authority: Jerusalem is not negotiable

February 15, 2019 — Israel National News reports: “Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Rami Hamdallah emphasized that Jerusalem, and all of its neighborhoods, suburbs, and nearby Bedouin encampments, is not for sale and is not negotiable.

Speaking in the Bedouin encampment of Bir Nabala, Hamdallah said that the PA’s activities will continue regardless of the challenges. This, he said, is part of the responsibility of the PA Arabs and their justification for existence.

According to Hamdallah, Jerusalem will always be an inseparable part of ‘Palestine.’…”  (930 times God promises Jerusalem forever to the Jews. Soon all Hell will break loose in the Middle East. Joel 3:2 warns today’s politicians that World War III occurs because of parting God’s land. It won’t succeed. Christ will return, stop the horrendous war and reign over the world from the Throne of David in Jerusalem forever – Revelation 11:18; Luke 1:32, 33. Psalm 122:6 – “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”  See the next report.)

Islamic cleric: Don’t call it the Western Wall

February 13, 2019 — Israel National News reports: “Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, head of the Supreme Islamic Council in Jerusalem, issued a fatwa (ruling on a point of Islamic law) stating that the Western Wall (which the Muslims refer to as the Al-Buraq Wall) is an inseparable part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and is considered an Islamic sanctuary.

In the fatwa, Sabri writes that the Western Wall is part of the structure, in this case the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He claims that the Muslim prophet Muhammad had tied his wonderful horse Buraq to this wall before embarking on his heavenly journey.

Sabri further claims that the Western Wall belongs exclusively to Muslims all over the world, and that Muslims would never recognize the Jews’ ownership of the site. He also states that there is not a single rock at the Western Wall which is connected to Jewish history.

Sabri also says that, as a foreign government, Israel is forbidden from carrying out any renovation work on the walls of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and that the Western Wall should not be called by its Hebrew name…”  (In Genesis 22:1-14 God commanded Abraham to bring his son Isaac to the land of Moriah and offer him as a sacrifice there.  As he was about to complete the sacrifice, God stopped him and provided a ram as a substitutionary sacrifice.  In I Chronicles 21:18 – 26, King David purchased this mount so he could build an altar to offer a sacrifice when he confessed his sin.  This was the location where the angel of the Lord was commanded to stop the destruction of Jerusalem [I Chronicles 21:15].  In II Chronicles 3:1, King Solomon built the First Temple on Mount Moriah, this was started in 966 BC.  This Temple stood until 586 BC when it was destroyed by the Babylonians.  The Second Temple was built in 516 BC and enlarged by Herod the Great in 12 BC.  It stood until it was destroyed by the Romans in AD 70.  The Dome of the Rock was built in AD 692, and the Al Aqsa Mosque was not built until AD 705.  It is obvious who has the rightful claim to the Temple Mount.)
