British Prime Minister Gordon Brown Says That Jewish Settlements In Judea And Samaria Are An Obstacle To Peace

By Jimmy DeYoung

Following a meeting with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said that the Jewish settlements in the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria are the largest obstacle to a Middle East peace deal and this issue must be resolved if the peace process is to go forward. Brown said that there must be a two state solution with a Palestinian state that is secure and viable economically and an Israeli state with secure borders plus peace and stability.

British Prime Minister Brown is only one of many voices among world leaders that are calling for the evacuation of the Jewish settlements in order to get a peace deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Jimmy's Prophetic Perspective on the News

The call by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown to remove the Jewish settlements from Judea and Samaria in order to make a peace deal is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has joined the chorus of world leaders that are calling for the Jewish settlers to be evacuated from the Biblical heartland of the Jewish state of Israel. It is interesting to see that not one world leader, maybe with the exception of several Israeli political leaders, but not one world leader is saying that the Jews have a right, a Biblical right, to live in the land of their forefathers.

Many of the Jews living in the area of Judea and Samaria say they are there because the land is God's land and only He can say who can live where in the land of Israel. That statement, that the land is God's land, is absolutely correct according to Leviticus 25:23. That verse also says to the Jewish people that they are only strangers and sojourners on the land. In other words, the Jews are the caretakers of God's land.

The Jewish people have been promised this land according to God's promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and those promises can be found in Genesis 15, 26, and 35. The truth be known, no world leader can circumvent God's promises. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
