In his Watchman Report: Middle East Current Events Update – June 14th, 2018, Amir Tsarfati expressed an opinion that struck me as insightful and worthy of passing on to those who haven’t heard it.
Amir noted that U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman would soon meet in Washington with Pres. Trump’s Senior Advisor, Jared Kushner, and his Chief Envoy, Jason Greenblatt, to discuss the president’s Middle East Peace Proposal before the latter two men travel to Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and perhaps other places for meetings with leaders in those nations.
Amir believes Pres. Trump’s Peace Proposal will call for the Sunni Arabs to sign a peace agreement with Israel and to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish nation.
Amir knows that the PA leadership stopped meeting with Pres. Trump’s peace team, and they declared all of Pres. Trump’s proposals dead on arrival because Mr. Trump recognized Jerusalem (the global burdensome stone) as the capital of Israel.
Amir believes many Sunni Arabs are fed up with giving the PA millions of dollars every year while rejecting every proposal to settle the issue.
Amir believes Pres. Trump’s peace team will tell the Sunnis, “We tried to settle the issues. The PA won’t work with us. We need to move on without the PA.”
Amir believes the Sunnis will agree to proceed without the PA and side with Israel in exchange for U.S. and Israeli help on stopping the Iranian quest for nuclear weapons.
When the Sunni Arabs abandon the PA, Amir believes the PA will turn to Turkey, Iran and Russia for help, and those nations will agree to give it.
As stated above, this is Amir’s opinion, so it is just speculation (and he was clear about it), but it makes a lot of sense. Time will tell, and it is something to watch for.
Moving on, as a general rule, it rains very little in Israel during our summer months of June, July and August.
The Jews pray for rain in its season, and they treat seasonal rain as a blessing from God and an answer to prayer.
But when the rain falls out of season (in June, July and August), some Jews wonder if it is a blessing or a warning from God.
This week, while the Israeli army was forcefully removing a group of Jewish settlers from their homes on the West Bank, a strong band of thunderstorms caused power outages, flooding in some Israeli cities, vehicles to get stuck, etc.
A few Jews wondered if the rain was a sign that God is unhappy with Israel for removing Jews from their land when it was God that gave the land to Israel and caused them to return.
It brings up a question: Does God use natural disasters (droughts, floods, volcanoes, pestilence, etc.) to call for repentance? The answer is in II Chron. 7:13-14.
Moving on again, research at the Univ. of Basel and the Rockefeller Univ. found evidence that contradicts Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.
Instead of animals evolving into humans over millions of years, the DNA of thousands of species of animals, including humans, found that animals and humans “emerged” about the same time.
These researchers believe this “emergence” happened no more than 200,000 years ago, but I am just naïve enough to believe that someone may eventually prove that life was created on the fifth and sixth days of the same week (Gen. 1:20-27).
Anyway, universities, professors, teachers, textbook authors, publishers, etc., need to discard Darwin’s theory of Evolution.
