The UN, EU, US and Russia Tell Israel To Stop Building Jewish Settlements

By Jimmy DeYoung

At a meeting in London the Quartet, which is the UN, US, the EU and Russia have told Israel to stop building more Jewish settlements because it is causing the Middle East peace process to collapse, a statement that is confirmed by the PA negotiators who say the biggest hindrance to a deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians is the Jewish settlement issue.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon reading from a joint statement said the Quartet expressed its deep concern at Israel's continued settlement building in Judea and Samaria, the West Bank, and called for all outposts built since March 2001 to be dismantled. The Quartet's special Middle East envoy, Tony Blair said that intense efforts are ongoing behind the scenes and may bear fruit later this year.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A call by the Quartet to stop all building in the Jewish settlements of Judea and Samaria is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the End Times.

At the most recent meeting of the Quartet, which is made up of the UN, the US, EU and Russia, which took place in London, a joint statement, the most harsh to this time, called for the Jewish settlements to be dismantled and no more building on these settlements has a tone that even the Israeli government seems to be rejecting. The Jewish settlers who have built these communities in Judea and Samaria, the West Bank, say no foreign nations or organization of nations has a right seem to tell them where they can or cannot live in the land that God has given to them in these days.

Bible prophecy actually confirms the statements by the Jewish settlers. Ezekiel 34 reveals that 18 times God said to the Jewish people He would gather them from the four corners of the Earth and give them the land that is in question. Ezekiel 36 says they will prosper in this land and the Lord gave them this land in Judea and Samaria for His holy namesake. He swore by His name that He would give the Jews this land in the Last Days, Ezekiel 36:22.

The Quartet's demand for Israel to dismantle Jewish settlements is indeed a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
