Jordanian King promotes “Global Solution” to Middle East conflict

His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday called on the world community to “reach a consensus” on immediate steps that should be taken to salvage the Middle East peace process.

The King of Jordan and the leader of the UN are in agreement about disregarding the Word of God

During a meeting with French Foreign Minister Michele Alliot-Marie, His Majesty said there is not much time left to waste more opportunities to make peace in the region. Unless the peace process moves forward, the region and the world will suffer more tension and conflict, the King told the French top diplomat.

He underlined the role of France and the European Union (EU) in supporting the Middle East peace process, which, he said, should lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state, on Palestinian national soil, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Ways to end the Middle East conflict and Jordanian ties with partner countries were also on the agenda of a meeting King Abdullah held yesterday with ambassadors of 20 countries.

During the meeting, His Majesty urged intensified efforts to overcome obstacles to the resumption of “serious and effective” direct talks between the Palestinians and Israelis.

The talks, he said, should resolve all final status issues on the basis of well-defined terms of reference to achieve security and stability in the region and work out a settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict on the basis of the two-state formula, the statement said.

The Monarch also called for bringing an end to all Israeli unilateral measures, including settlement construction, which aims at changing facts on the ground and constitutes an obstacle to peacemaking efforts, according to the statement.

My comments;

It is no surprise that the Moslem King of Jordan would be opposed to Israeli Jews living in Judea and Samaria (known to most of the world as the “West Bank”) nor is it any mystery why he is encouraging the creation of a Palestinian State.

The population of his desert kingdom is over 60% Palestinian and he would very much like to have someplace to send them. His father tried to get rid of them several times, going back to the attempt Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat made to overthrow the government in the 1970 Black September incident.

But, like so many other people in many countries, the King of Jordan has made a fatal mistake and forgotten that the Children of Israel have been given that area as an eternal possession by God Himself.

Genesis 17: 8 says;

I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

God keeps His side of bargains, even when human beings don’t.  Even if the King of Jordan, and the UN, and the EU, and all the nations of the Earth want to give Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians to form a state there, the God who created this Universe and everything in it will not agree. He made a promise to the Jewish People through their father Abraham, and He cannot do otherwise than to keep it.

  1. You bring up an interesting point do you think Bablyon will be rebuilt or is scripture referring to New York?

    Ivar can I tell you since I have been reading your blog I have been speaking to my Catholic friends about your writings and they are dropping like flies. They no longer want to hear my rhetoric. In fact they no longer want to talk to me. They think I’m full of it.

  2. Greetings Richard,

    King Abdullah is descended from desert Beduins. His grandfather was one of five brothers whose father was the Sherif of Mecca before the first World War, when most of the Middle East was part of the Ottomon Empire.

    During the War the Ottomon’s arrested and imprisoned him and two of his sons, so he directed the other three, and all his other followers, to join with the British against the Ottomons.

    Abdullah was one of those three, and he was one of the lieutenants of T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) during their drive north to Damascus.

    After the War, the British and French split up the Middle East into Mandates. The French got what became Syria and Lebanon and the Brits got what became Israel, Jordan and Iraq, as well as very close alliances with the tribes in the Persian Gulf that later became Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, Yemen and Bahrain.

    Abdullah and Faisal were considered by Lawrence and the other British officers who had fought with them to be the most capable. The Arab Street also wanted Faisal to be their king and to rule the entire area from Damascus, but the French wanted to put their own puppet king in so the British made him king of Baghdad and they made Abdullah king in Amman. Needless to say, neither of them had real authority, everything had to be cleared by London.

    Faisal remained king in Baghdad in a very shaky position until either he or his son (I’m sorry I can’t remember) was overthrown in 1956 by a cabal of army officers which included Saddam Hussein’s uncle.

    Abdullah was assassinated at the entrance to the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in 1951. The man who shot him was a Palestinian nationalist who was angry that he wasn’t “doing something” about the newborn state of Israel.

    Abdullah’s son Hussein took over and he stayed on the throne until, I want to say 1998 when he died and the current king, Abdullah II took over.

    All of that is to say, there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about Abdullah’s “ancestry” which points to him being the type who would re-establish Babylon, much less take over Iraq.

    Not to be telling tales out of school but a friend of mine knows Abdullah personally and I have seen him giving speeches. It’s quite remarkable that he can even maintain control of his own desert kingdom and there’s nothing in his personality which would indicate that he can “take over Iraq.” He’s just not that charismatic, and the people of Iraq have their own favorites to rule over them.

    If you want to do me a favor, go find the person who told you that and tell them it’s nonsense.

    If you want to do yourself a favor, go to the library and check out “The Seven Pillars of Wisdom” by T.E. Lawrence and it will give you a much better picture of Abdullah’s “ancestry.”

    Another good one is “The Road to Jerusalem” by Benny Morris, which is about the British officers who ran the Jordanian Army until 1956.

    As to your second point, I too have lost a lot of good Catholic friends when I tried to talk to them about this stuff. A good thing to remember is that the Catholic Church is not the same everywhere. A Polish Catholic I met in Tiberius several years ago told me about a trip he’d taken to Argentina and how bizzare all the Churches there were. Catholics from the Philippines (there are over 150,000 Filipinos in Israel, mostly working as maids or caretakers) tell me similar stories about the churches they’ve been in while working in Europe or Mexico.

    American Catholics have attitudes and cultural mores reflected in their churches that are very similar to their Protestant neighbors, and they often have a hard time believing that Catholics in South America and other places worship bones and things like that.

    Also, Catholics are very devoted to the Pope, and any criticism of him, or the institution, they consider blasphemy, even if it’s true.

    There it is.

    1. Aaron I was referring to the fact the Abdullah claims to be the 43rd-generation direct descendant of Muhammad. I would think that lineage would pull weight will all factions of Islam in regards to credibility bewtween the sunnis and shites whether it be in Jordan or Iraq. Saddam had an interest in rebuilding Babylon it would only make sense that Abdullah would like to see it rebuilt with him ruling over it. Iraq is in chaos and the country is having trouble forming their government why not Abdullah who comes as a peace maker with his lineage before Iran gets in there?

  3. I don’t know where you’re getting your information Richard but almost every ruler/politician in the Arab/Moslem world claims to be descended from Mohammed and I very much doubt that if Abdullah is making that claim it would impress anyone, especially when you remember his other lamentable characteristics (he’s doing a better job than his brother would have, but that’s not saying much.)

    I’d make a few points here Richard, in reply to what you’ve asked.

    1) If Saddam Hussein couldn’t build a modern city on the ruins of ancient Babylon, Abdullah II, who is a fraction of the man Saddam was (using the metrics we measure Arab rulers by) isn’t going to be able to do it, even if he had the ambition to, which I’ve never seen any evidence of.

    2) Abdullah is many things, but a fool isn’t one of them. He has a hard enough time keeping control of his own kingdom (his Army spends most of its time repressing the Palestinian population of Jordan and don’t have the time or the means to invade another country) and he knows better than to try and move into Iraq. If he did, there are about a dozen warlords who would eat him for breakfast, to say nothing of how it would upset Washington, which pays all the bills in Amman.

    3)Ivar is correct, the “Babylon” spoken of in the book of Revelation is not the ruins out in the middle of the Iraqi desert and it isn’t New York City either, it’s a spiritual stronghold. There will probably be a physical city where the anti-Christ’s kingdom will be headquartered, but I don’t think it’ll be in Iraq (Rome is the most likely candidate, in my humble opinion.)

    4) Don’t take this the wrong way Richard, but you need to stop this pointless speculation and get into the Word. There is no end to these theories and if you’re not grounded in the Scriptures they will take you into all kinds of places you don’t need or want to go.

    The Lord bless you.

    BTW This is just a guess but do you read DebkaFile alot?

    1. Dear Aaron

      Shalom

      The President of Tunisia fled to Saudi Arabia.

      Is it likely that King Abdullah of Jordan also will seek refuge in a five star resort over there?

      What about Mubarak. Its seems to be boiling over in Egypt also?

    2. You dont know where I’m getting my information?

      Its a well know fact that Abdullah claims to be 43rd-generation direct descendant of Muhammad. We are talking about Abdullah not other middle eastern leaders so I’m not sure why you brought them into the discussion. Google it

      Pointless speculations? What are you talking about? You mean like the kind of pointless speculation you made that Babylon is actually in Rome? Thats one of many theological perspectives but by no means a given fact!
      Where in scripture does it say that Babylon is Rome?

      Who are you to tell me I’m not in the word. That really makes me mad. Let me guess you read Debka? What kind of stupid comment is that. Let me guess Aaron you read people magazine? Lets get together and focus on what were discussing, Deception from one christian brother to another. Dont put me down or try be little me. I’m and educated man who reads scripture treat me like it.

      Lastly deception comes in all forms thats why we speculate about it so we wont be deceived. So how can speculation be pointless? Thats theme of this blog speculation.

      I appreciate the pieces you write on this blog and I do pray for your guidance but you guys can be such hippocrites some times. There is a way to talk to people and get your point across about deception without acting like bulls in a china shop.

      1. Dear Richard,

        Shalom.

        Mysterious Babylon…..Still a mystery to many.

        Revelation 17:5
        The name written on her forehead was a mystery: BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

  4. Dear Richard,

    This is a deeply imperfect form of communication and I ask you to forgive me if I gave you the impression that I thought you were uneducated or nonspiritual.

    You asked me a question and I’ve given you the best answer I have.

    In my assessment, there is a VERY LOW order of probability that Abdullah will take over Iraq and rebuild Babylon.

    His claim to be descended from Muhammed is not, to the best of my knowledge, taken seriously by very many people. Even if it was, they are far more likely to remember that his grandfather openly colluded with David Ben Gurion to allow the creation of the State of Israel and his father killed 20,000 Palestinians during the Black September Revolt in 1970, attempted to warn Golda Meir about the impending attack on Yom Kippur in 1973, and finally signed a peace treaty with Yitzchak Rabin in 1994.

    Those are the “ancestors” of Abdullah that are most relevant to the Arab Moslems that I know of.

    Add that to the fact that in 2011 Abdullah is basically a puppet king who would have a hard time finding someone who would trust him to run a convenience store in the real world and needs permission from Washington to wipe his own bum and I JUST DON’T SEE IT HAPPENING MAN!

    There it is.

    If you feel the need to speculate about these things you’re right, who am I to tell you not to.

    I will instead simply inform you that I spent many years doing the same thing and all my speculations turned out to be a mile off the mark and so one day I stopped doing that and simply started reading my Bible more and since then things have been going much better for me in every way.

    The Lord bless you.

  5. The Bible is full of similar stories. I want to point out one similar story in particular. The prophesy of 911 is in the Book of Daniel [starting at Dan 4:10] . You can find it in the story of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream where the Tree is chopped down. The Tree in this dream is a metaphor for a skyscraper. The Tree is also a symbol for the economy the same as the Twin Towers were [Daniel 4:12]. When the Tree, Twin Towers fell so did the economy (Daniel 4:14). Both stories take place in Iraq. Nebuchadnezzar in the future is Saddam Hussein. Both Neb and Saddam loose their Kingdoms when the Tree, Twin Towers fall. Both men go into exile and suffer a period of madness following the fall of the skyscraper (Tree) [Daniel4:25]. Saddam looked like a creature with hair of feathers and nails like claws when the US forces pulled him out of his hole in the ground as did Neb [Daniel 4:33]. Both men were restored, brought back to the kingdom [Daniel 4:36]. The writing on the wall was for the sons of Neb and Saddam [Dan 5:25]. The sons of both Kings were killed by invading forces [Dan 5:30].

    In summary the Prophesy written in the book of Daniel is about 911. There was no possible way to have foreseen this until after the events transpired. This is the definitive interpretation.

  6. Like you wrote: Genesis 17: 8 says;

    I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

    Now God created this crisis [Daniel 4:12] and the solution is also written in Genesis, but is comes way before chapter 17. It is in the story about creation where Adam and Eve have been deceived by the Serpent. Adam and Eve are representatives for all of us by appearing to be the first humans. There is a Tree in this story too. First what needs to be completed in interpreting this story is to determine what kind of Tree grows Knowledge. Now I know what kind of Tree is in the garden and it isn’t an apple tree. No one can figure it out, but I have. I will give you a clue. Books are made from trees, so is a cross and a stick to name a few products. A Tree is a metaphor for a Book. Trees contain Knowledge. So what is the Fruit on this Tree?

    The solution is in Genesis, but it takes a lot of explaining because most people can’t see it. Basically what the story is telling us is that we have all been deceived. Which means, all of us are wrong except for the Jews.

    All Christains and Muslims are not going to like what God has to say to them. He says your all wrong. No one likes being wrong, do they.

    By the way,

    “The Tree Bears Jesus”.
