EARTHQUAKE IN ISRAEL
No, it has not yet occurred, but will begin this next Friday, July 18, 2013. How can an earthquake be so definitively predicted? Because this is not an earthquake that will begin underground, rather, it already began in Brussels, Belgium on June 30, 2013 when the European Union sent out a binding directive to all 28 of its member states.
Yesterday morning HAARETZ reported: ‘The European Union (EU) has published a guideline for all 28 member states forbidding any funding, cooperation, awarding of scholarships, research funds or prizes to anyone residing in the Jewish settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The regulation, which goes into effect on Friday, requires that any agreement or contract signed by an EU country with Israel include a clause stating that the settlements are not part of the State of Israel and therefore are not part of the agreement.”
The JERUSALEM POST reports: “The new directive, initiated in December by the EU foreign ministers, is ‘in conformity with the EU’s longstanding position that Israeli settlements are illegal under international law and with the non-recognition by the EU of Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied territories, irrespective of their legal status under domestic Israeli law’.”
It is further reported in several media venues that a senior Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity, described the new ruling as an “earthquake”.
So Israel must not only endure almost constant rocket attacks from its neighbors, unrest in all of its border states and now an “earthquake” in the form of directives by 28 nations in Europe on how it conducts its internal affairs within its own borders.
Make no mistake, the EU, along with the United Nations, will not stop its efforts to divide Jerusalem and force Israel into borders that are absolutely impossible to defend. This is dangerous incrementalism that foreshadows much more ominous things planned by world authorities.
Israel cannot allow those who do not live the Jewish experience of history dictate its future.
Pray for the undivided peace of Jerusalem.
