Kommentarer efter FN beslutet

Kommentar från Joel Rosenberg:

"I'm wishing I could rejoice with my Palestinian friends about the U.N. vote. But the Bible is clear that the Lord God will judge all nations who divide Land of Israel. "For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land." (Old Testament Book of Joel, chapter 3, verses 1 and 2)

The Palestinians have suffered so much, from many sides. I wish a sovereign state was the answer. Nearly the whole world is convinced it is. But defying God's Word won't be bring blessing; it brings sadness and eventual judgment. Christians can -- and must -- love and bless and encourage the Palestinian people in general, and the followers of Jesus Christ in the West Bank and Gaza in particular. We can pray for them and visit them and invest in them and help them "do justice, and love mercy, and walk humbly with your God." (Micah 6:8) We can be advocates of justice, mercy and compassion by the Israeli government towards the Palestinian people, and advocates of the same by the Palestinian government towards their own people. There are many ways we can be a blessing to the Palestinian people. But it simply will not be a blessing to them -- or to any nation or people group around the world -- to support dividing the Land of Israel in disobediance to God's Word."

The day after 2

New York - This is ”the day after” also for the Palestinian delegation. One would expect this to be a joyous day but this is not the case. This morning we chatted again with the Permanent Palestinian Observer to the UN and he was not upbeat at all.  As a matter fo fact, he looked more worried and stressed than ever. For such a long time he and his colleagues have been pushing for the UN upgrade but the day after the vote those in the Palestinian delegation here seem more desillusioned than ever.
