Former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will once again run for office in Israel’s election in November.
Netanyahu Blasts’s Lapid’s U.N. Speech
Supporting the 2-State Solution
9/24/22 – by Tim Buck
“Tonight, we heard a speech full of weakness, defeat and surrender,” Netanyahu stated in response to the prime minister’s address to the UN.
Benjamin Netanyahu slammed Prime Minister Yair Lapid for his address
to the 77th United Nations General Assembly on Thursday that called for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.“After the right-wing government led by me removed the Palestinian state from the global agenda, after we brought four historic peace agreements with Arab countries that bypassed the Palestinian veto, Lapid is bringing the Palestinians back to the forefront of the world stage and putting Israel right into the Palestinian pit
,” Netanyahu stated in a Hebrew-language video address.
“Lapid has already said in the past that he is ready to evacuate 90,000 Israelis to establish a Palestinian state. Now he intends to give them a state of terror in the heart of the country, a state that will threaten us all,” he said.
“I and my friends will not allow this” declared Netanyahu, who is running to regain the premiership in the upcoming November election. “We will not allow the establishment of Hamastan on the border of Kfar Saba, Petah Tikva and Netanya. We will not return Israel to the Oslo disaster. Lapid endangers our future and our existence both on the Palestinian issue and on the Iranian issue.“While Iran rushes to a nuclear agreement that endangers the very existence of the State of Israel,” he continued, “Lapid does nothing. For more than a year he has been asleep at the wheel.
“Unlike us, Lapid did not fight against Iran in the U.S. Congress, in the U.S. media, in the U.S. Senate. He didn’t do anything,” he charged.
Netanyahu vowed: “We will return to Israel a strong government that will prevent a Palestinian state, stop Iran, restore national honor and bring Israel back to the world status it had and which you so deserve.”

Israel Ready To Accept
9/22/22 – by Tim Buck
For the first time in history, an Israeli Prime Minister is expected to announce his support for the establishment of a Palestinian State during his speech to the UN General Assembly today, according to a source close to the Israeli premier.
Israel remains committed to the Two State Solution to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Prime Minister Yair Lapid is expected to tell the United Nations General Assembly when he delivers his first ever address to that global body on Thursday morning.
It would mark the first time an Israeli prime minister has declared support for a two state solution at the UN.
“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.”
During his address to the UNGA on Wednesday, President Joe Biden also endorsed the two state solution
, saying that the Palestinians were “entitled” to their own state, and that it is the only way to ensure Israel’s security going forward.
“We will continue to advocate for a lasting, negotiated peace between the Jewish and democratic state of Israel and the Palestinian people,” Biden told the UN General Assembly.
“The United States is committed to Israel’s security. And a negotiated two state solution remains our best way to ensure Israel’s security and prosperity for the future and give the Palestinians the state to which they are entitled,” he said.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is also slated to address the GA on Thursday, and is expected to call for a Palestinian State and to call on the UN to grant the Palestinians full-member status at the global body.
From a Bible prophecy perspective, these announcements could spark a shift with serious implications for the Middle East peace with three principle parties (Israel, US, Palestinians) agreeing its time to divide Israel into two states.

France President Emmanuel Macron urged the resumption of talks towards a two-state solution with the Palestinians and Israel, which he called “the only option to enable a just and lasting peace”.
The End Time Sign
For The Two-State Plan
7/19/22 by Tim Buck
Thanks to Joe Biden’s recent pandering to the Palestinians, the two-state solution is making front page Middle East headlines for the first time since President Trump presented his well thought out peace plan in 2019.
I said in 2019 that the Trump plan was by far the most well thought out, two-state plan ever conceived and was so brilliant it could likely become the template for the final plan that prophecy says will be confirmed by Antichrist before the start of the Tribulation (Daniel 9:27).
Although prophesied to happen, God warns Israel not to divide the land under any conditions or they will suffer the consequences of His wrath in the Tribulation (Joel 3:1-3).
Giving back any land to the Palestinians, let alone the heartland of Judea and Samaria, the so-called, “West Bank,” is tantamount to Joshua offering to give back Jericho to the Canaanites. It is an offense to Almighty God who gave Abraham and his descendants all the promised land for eternity!
Yesterday, the Times Of Israel reported that “A senior Saudi minister described normalizing ties with Israel as a “strategic option,” while clarifying that a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians was a “requirement” before Riyadh would formalize ties with Jerusalem.”
This means the official line of Saudi Arabia is that while they may be willing to join the Abraham Accords, the ticket price of their admission is nothing less than the dividing of the land of Israel in the two-state solution.
And France’s President Emmanuel Macron would dearly love to broker that deal with Israel and the Palestinians.
For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
1 Thessalonians 5:2-3
After Biden’s visit last week, the Middle East is buzzing with talk of the two state solution between Israel and the Palestinians!
FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL:
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris this week focusing on the “Israeli-Palestinian peace process.” Direct peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have not been held since 2014.
Emmanuel Macron: ‘There is no credible alternative to the two-states solution with Israel.’
Macron said, “What can resolve the crisis between Israel and Palestine, surely not unilateral initiatives, nor trampling on the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to legitimate peace. Nor underestimating Israel’s fair right to security. There is no credible alternative to the two state solution, living side by side in peace and security with Jerusalem as the capital of both nations.”
Tim’s Note: How can anyone be so foolish and blind. Satan wants Israel divided to have a better opportunity at exterminating the State of Israel.
The good news for the church is that these are the last days and with the two-state plan getting closer, it is a strong sign of the soon return of the Lord. Dividing the land is one of the last things to happen before the 7-year Tribulation begins! Keep looking up!

Turkey Vs. Israel
President Erdogan of Turkey feels it’s time to pay back Israel and now he’s calling for an international force to quell Israel’s so-called aggression. The current escalation against Israel began with violent protests by Palestinians on the Temple Mount.
The cry from the beginning of the uprising in Israel was that every Muslim nation should attack Jerusalem. Sound familiar? At the same time massive rallies began taking place throughout Turkey calling for the overthrow of Jerusalem.
This entire war effort against the Jewish State was a premeditated incitement of violence against Israel. Hamas is still firing rockets into Israel from Gaza with some 3000 rockets already sent into Israel. Rockets were also fired from Lebanon and from Syria. Israel responded by targeting Hamas positions in Gaza.
Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said that Israel’s campaign in Gaza was continuing at “full force.” Politicians in Israel often do not agree but concerning defending Israel against these rocket attacks everyone is unanimous. Israel is committed to this fight.
Most conspicuously Turkish President Erdogan said that Israel must be taught a “deterrent lesson”. Erdogan called on the UN Security Council to put an international peace keeping force inside of Israel. And once again, Erdogan also reiterated his position that Turkey should be allowed a seat on the five member state UN Security Council.
My friends, the Turkey versus Israel animosity is no small sign. The antagonism of Turkey for Israel is heating up which will ultimately lead to the Magog Invasion at the end of the Tribulation period.
In a speech this week Turkish President Erdogan called on all Muslim nations to overthrow Jerusalem. In another speech Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Turkey had decided to send an international army to Israel for the protection of Jerusalem.
The current uprising is exacerbated through the influence of the region’s two biggest, outside players; Turkey and Iran.
Iran funds Hamas and has long supported Palestinian terrorist groups while Turkey uses every chance it gets to berate Israel.
While the recently signed Abraham Accords have reflected improving ties between Israel and key Gulf Arab states, the Israeli-Palestinian controversy remains unresolved, and both Turkey and Iran cited the dispute in their condemnations of the Abraham Accords last year.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned Israel as a “cruel terrorist state” on Saturday, and he said last year that “Jerusalem is our city” as part of his effort to identify the current anti-Israel regime in Turkey with its former Ottoman Empire.
“Iran’s IRGC head Hossein Salami warned last week that Israel was vulnerable to one large tactical operation because the country is so small,” Middle East Center for Reporting and Analysis Executive Director Seth Frantzman wrote Tuesday in the Jerusalem Post. “Hamas is setting the pace – and that pace is being watched and guided from Iran.
This may be due to the fact that Iran’s largest proxy Hezbollah wants to know what it looks like when Israel is faced with a large amount of rocket fire.”
According to Ezekiel 38-39, Turkey, Iran and Antichrist’s coalition of nations will launch their offensive to invade Israel by miscalculating they will be able to overwhelm the Jewish State. Their plan works until God intervenes at the last minute!
US Taxpayers Funding The Next Generation Of Palestinian Terrorists
Question: How do you get the American government to finance a terrorist regime when U.S. law prevents it from doing so?
Answer: Twist the meaning of words, claim that the law doesn’t say what it obviously says and pretend the regime doesn’t sponsor terror. In other words, play the usual games.
Those games are in full swing now in the campaign to put American taxpayers’ dollars into the pockets of the Palestinian Authority.
Last week, The New York Times published a gigantic feature story about a Palestinian Arab school located in the village of Jaba near Bethlehem that supposedly will be in dire straits unless it starts receiving large amounts of American aid, and fast.
The article, by Times correspondent Adam Rasgon, never considers the question of why the P.A. chooses to fund terrorists rather than its own schools. Last year, the P.A. distributed $15 million monthly –monthly!–on salaries for terrorists who are imprisoned in Israel. Just one month of those funds could have built quite a few schools.
Instead, Rasgon’s entire article was based on the premise that America has some kind of obligation to pay for the P.A.’s schools.
The United States does send humanitarian assistance to various impoverished countries, but not to anti-American, terror-sponsoring regimes. The United States doesn’t finance schools in Iran or North Korea.
So why should it pay for schools under the P.A., which not only sponsors terrorists but spreads some of the most vicious anti-American propaganda in the world?
Moreover, what exactly is being taught in the school that the Times wants American taxpayers to support? P.A. school textbooks are notorious for glorifying terrorism and vilifying Israel and America.
Are we supposed to believe that the Jaba school will be the first P.A. school to use a moderate, peace-promoting curriculum?
One of the main commentators quoted in the Times article was Joel Braunold, who was described as “an expert on U.S. law surrounding foreign aid to the Palestinians.” Braunold made it clear he is troubled that U.S. law, specifically the Taylor Force Act, prohibits sending aid to the P.A. so long as it pays terrorists.
So Braunold plays word games to get around that inconvenient law.
He asks: “Would funding construction of this school, which is controlled by the Palestinian government, be considered direct support of the Palestinian Authority? It may or may not be. It is up to the Secretary of State to decide.”
Braunold is obviously hoping that the current Secretary of State, unlike his predecessor, will change the plain meaning of the term “direct support” so that the Taylor Force Act can be discarded, and the U.S. can start sending checks to the P.A.
I would welcome a serious and robust public discussion about the question of American aid to the P.A. and the Taylor Force Act. What I don’t like are the dishonest tactics being used by some of those who are promoting the Palestinian cause.
So, please, don’t tell us that the United States has some kind of obligation to finance P.A. schools. Tell us what’s being taught in those schools if you want us to fund them.
Don’t tell us that the Secretary of State can arbitrarily change the meaning of U.S. law. He cannot.
Don’t give the P.A. advice on how to pull the wool over the American public’s eyes so that it can get our money. And don’t pretend that an advocate for Palestinian funding is some kind of neutral “expert.”
Most of all, stop searching for new ways to get American dollars to a terror-sponsoring regime. Instead, try searching for ways to force the P.A. to change its terrorist ways. That would be a real step towards Middle East peace.
