China’s President, Xi Jinping, announced on Thursday that his country supports the creation of a Palestinian state with eastern Jerusalem as its capital, based on the pre-1967 borders.
“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee. Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD.” Genesis 13:15-18 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: While the world bickers over the dividing up of Israel to create a Palestinian state, God has other ideas. The Bible says that at the Battle of Armageddon, He will fight will all the nations that come against His holy land of Israel. God has a One State Solution in mind, and there won’t be a Muslim within 500 miles of it when it’s all said and done.
Xi’s comments were made during a visit to Cairo and were reported by the Egyptian Al-Ahram newspaper. The Chinese leader announced in a speech at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo that China is allocating $7.6 million in aid to the Palestinian people.
He also said that China would provide $30 million in humanitarian aid to Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya and Yemen in 2016, as well as $300 million in aid to Arab countries for bolstering law enforcement and police training, according to Al-Ahram.
A Myth Called The Palestinian People:
China enjoys strong business connections with Israel, but has also in the past expressed support for a Palestinian state.
In 2013, China called for a resumption of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA), explaining the need to settle “the Palestinian question.”Also that year, Xi discussed with PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas a four-point proposal for peace talks with Israel.
The Chinese proposal focused on an independent Palestinian state, negotiations as the only way to peace, the principle of “land for peace”, and guarantees the international community should provide for the progress of the peace process.
Despite’s Xi’s comments on Thursday, the Israel-PA peace process remains frozen and has been since 2014, when the PA breached the conditions of talks by unilaterally applying to join international organizations.
Since then, the PA has been on “diplomatic offensive” against Israel, joining international organizations such as the International Criminal Court (ICC) and submitting “evidence” of alleged Israeli war crimes against Palestinians with the intent of having the court prosecute Israel.
On Thursday it was reported that the PA is now planning another such move, and is promoting a UN resolution that would condemn Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria as illegal.
Abbas, meanwhile, has continued to incite to terrorism against Jews, having recently called on Palestinian Arabs to “liberate” the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem from Jews and their “filthy feet”.
On Thursday, he claimed to Israeli journalists that he tried to arrange a meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu two months ago, and was snubbed.
Netanyahu’s staff responded to the claims, saying, “he (Abbas) has already claimed this in the past, and we denied it. …It isn’t correct. This is an attempt by Abbas to evade his responsibility for the absence of negotiations. Even today in Davos Netanyahu called on Abbas to return to negotiations without preconditions.” source
