According to a recent report from the US State Department the White House and the Obama Administration is furious over Israel’s continual development in East Jerusalem. Why? Because remember folks This administration has wanted a “Two-State” Solution for a long time and this does nothing but put a wrench in their plans. Below is an excerpt from the official report.
Excerpt From US Dept Of State:
We are deeply concerned by reports today that the Government of Israel has published tenders for 323 units in East Jerusalem settlements. This follows Monday’s announcement of plans for 770 units in the settlement of Gilo. We strongly oppose settlement activity, which is corrosive to the cause of peace. These steps by Israeli authorities are the latest examples of what appears to be a steady acceleration of settlement activity that is systematically undermining the prospects for a two- state solution. In just the past few weeks, we have seen reports of the advancement of plans for 531 units in Ma’ale Adumim, 19 in Har Homa, 120 in Ramot, and 30 in Pisgat Ze’ev; the advancement of a plan to retroactively legalize an outpost near Ramallah; and the issuance of tenders for 42 units in Kiryat Arba.
These are very harsh words directed from Israel’s alleged greatest ally. Remember folks Jerusalem will be the center of much activity as we progress towards the time of the end. The Prophet Zechariah told us they would become a “Burdensome Stone” a “Cup of Trembling” in the end times. If you remember, back in 2011 Barack Obama suggested that Israel should return to its Pre-1967 borders which would put them at significant risk of attack from her surrounding enemies.
