Abbas and the Palestinians lie like they breathe. They are not interested in peace with Israel. They seek the demise of Israel and the Jewish people. Abbas is calling for going back to the 1967 with an independent state and East Jerusalem as their capital. This is not going to happen because that land belongs to Israel and has for thousands of years. I think we should go back further than the 1967 lines lets go back to the lines that God made in Genesis.
What was the promised land that the Bible talks about? In regards to the land that God has promised Israel, Genesis 15:18 declares to Abraham, “To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates.” God later confirms this promise to Abraham’s son Isaac and Isaac’s son Jacob (whose name was later changed to Israel). When the Israelites were about to invade the Promised Land, God reiterated the land promise, as recorded in Joshua 1:4, “Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Great Sea on the west.”
According to Genesis 15:18 and Joshua 1:4, the land God gave to Israel included everything from the Nile River in Egypt to Lebanon (south to north) and everything from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates River (west to east). So, what land has God stated belongs to Israel? All of the land modern Israel currently possesses, plus all of the land of the Palestinians (the West Bank and Gaza), plus some of Egypt and Syria, plus all of Jordan, plus some of Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Israel currently possesses only a fraction of the land God has promised.
This is the true land of Israel and the Jewish people and this should be the land that they are given. If the PA truly wants land they should ask their Arab brothers for they truly have no claim to the land that God gave Israel.
Abbas is playing up to Trump but anyone who believes that he wants peace with Israel is only kidding themselves. He wants to make Trump and his people believe that he really wants peace when nothing could be further from the truth. he did the same thing to the last administration. I am sure that if we could listen to him in private we would hear a completely different man. He would criticize Trump and Israel.
I also don’t believe that he will ever stop financial aid to the families of terrorists. He calls those terrorists heroes and pays their families every time one of them dies. Abbas looks at Trump, Israel and UN with anger when they ask him to stop the funding of these terrorists and their families.
The PLO has changed nothing. They may be talking nice to Trump, but that is only to face. Soon enough the play acting will stop and we will see the truth come out. I only hope that the world leaders will see them for they are.
