Great article on Mideast envoy George Mitchell's threat to freeze loan guarantees if the Jewish state fails to make progress in peace process. As was pointed out by Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, it is the Palestinian Authority who is impeding the peace process by their continued rocket attacks and by publicly honoring known terrorist murderers. According to the finance minister, "Israel made and is making an effort which includes difficult gestures in a bid to resume the negotiations. I have no indication that we are going to be pressured with the guarantees."
Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar addressed Mitchell's remarks as well. "When such statements are made in the way they were made, we must clarify that on the diplomatic level Israel will act in accordance with its vital interest without depending on its relations with other countries, " he said.
"I believe the American administration knows that the Palestinian Authority is the one preventing the peace talks by setting preconditions which were no set in the past. Israel has made tough and painful decisions while the Palestinians have not done anything. Israel will not accept preconditions for negotiations."
I am amazed at how few people know the Bible and what it says about Israel. God watches over her, and will bring all prophesies to pass concerning this tiny nation. No matter what is done or by whom it is done, God's love for Israel is unconditional. She may reap the results of her rejection of Yeshua HaMashiach, but she will never be out from under God's Grace completely. All things are coming to pass as He has spoken it!
