Jerusalem an Immovable Rock - Zec 12:3

Reader comment on item: White House Mischief

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Aug 16, 2011 at 15:46

The case for the sovereignty over Jerusalem, in complete contradiction to any fiat of the United Nations, legal obfuscation of the United States and the religious turbidity of just about everyone else, will NOT be decided by diplomacy; anyone thinking such is not looking at the practical reality. Who has ever staked a claim to Jerusalem and not paid dearly for it.

With only one exception in history where a significant entry into Jerusalem was done in complete humility on the back of a donkey near two thousand years ago: Jerusalem, even by Biblical standards and references, is a bloody city.

Tisha B'av, completely overlooked by just about anyone doing ramadan instead, is the commemoration of the tumultuous and turbulent history of a city and Holy Temple that the world looked upon with disdain and tried so very hard to own. The problem for the world is that the original landlord has not surrendered ownership, nor ever will. Tenants, both Jewish and non-Jewish have come and gone, and will try again in the future to wrest away that which they cannot hold.

Now the two events demonstrating the American Executive Administration's lack of knowledge on the subject are in fact two faces to a situation that is leading to a series of consequential events commencing probably no too long after the end of the ramadan. Anyone caught up in the alleged deceit will find that whatever the intent is for Jerusalem, being included in Israel's domain or not, will not be decided by an action of the United States Supreme Court nor by further obfuscation by American Executive diplomacy or the lack thereof. The cost of intervention will be extremely high as the rest of the world will find out.

Continuing, even if it were the opinion of the rest of the world that the 'corpus separatum' was in fact an edict that the world community was willing g to acknowledge, who among those who know really think that when the declaration of separate statehood by the 'Palestinian' authority occurs that they will recognize the 'corpus separatum' and not try their own occupation of the holy city? Seriously, who would think that?

Only in self deceit will there be the circumstances of the United States deciding to let the imposition of the U.N. dictum pass unnoticed if the 'Palestinian' effort presses the issue of Jerusalem. It is written: "Jerusalem is a stumbling stone." Let there be no mistaking who said that; it was the owner of Jerusalem and the effort to break the covenant of the owner will not be taken lightly.
