in response to reader comment: Disagree

The point taken by Alex does have its assertion that in the humanistic political realm of things, that after the announcement by the American presidency which places in effect the inevitable conclusion that Israel's legitimate head of its sovereignty is in Jerusalem, who gets the rights of influence over the lives of the Jewish citizen, the Arab citizen and the other non-Jewish citizenry: does Israel exert its own sovereignty from within or does its sovereign power get sublimated by international and other interests that have simmered their own ambitions under the cover of replacement theories of Middle East sovereignty over Israel. Even the rights to the name are at state.
Which leads to another aspect to this; that Mahmoud Abba's desire of a totally different paradigm attempts a shift into a proposal that eliminates both previous posits of power and replacement of a national Jewish state in favor of his establishing a 'Palestinian' one with the UN consent.
Of the three, there are defining opinions of which one is the most likely to succeed on behalf of the one definition that will remain as the others are cast into the dung heap of history [Psalm 83].
The writings of the prophets in the Hebrew Holy Writ have already revealed Israel' destiny; and none of the above totally comport to the circumstances that we see unfolding to reveal how Israel does go through a series of political cleansings that will bring about the singularly most dramatic climactic and catastrophic set of changes in the entirety of world history.
Here is irony: all of Israel's history, from the name change of Abram to Abraham to the final times capture of the Temple Mount has been recorded. If anyone who reads scripture as it is intended will recognize that the revealing of the words of Yeshua HaMashiach two thousand years or so ago are in fulfillment as this is being written. People have been scoffing at this ever since.
So what is different now? Nothing! Let the scoffers scoff. Let the globalists screams of 'Palestinian' dream be broadcast to the last whimper into the secondary heavens as schemes of principalities and dark power try to implement the final stage of destruction to Jerusalem and Israel, only to find that when all the smoke clears and the debris piles have cooled off, that the United States did not win; that Russia was sent home in nearly complete devastation of all of its former military power and the kings of the east no longer remain to boast of their empire's control over any part of history. Even Abbas will have been silenced.
The relationship of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor had better chances for survival that the United States and Israel; there is/was no a honeymoon in the latter connection since Israel was already betrothed to her LORD; the testimony of this starts and ends with the paradigm of the relationship found in the Song of Solomon where the model of the spiritual connection is displayed, but no one cares to read of it since it does not follow the world's caricature of the love displayed. The Holy Writ tells of who actually loves Israel and it is His LOVE that is in Israel's future; and none other than the LORD will be able to make that claim sure.
