Jordan’s has an “historic role in securing the holy sites as well as the Palestinian sovereignty over the West Bank and east Jerusalem”.
According to al-Habash, a new agreement was devised in order to coordinate the protection of the al-Aqsa Mosque and all the Muslim and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.
The agreement reiterated Jordan’s historic role in securing the holy sites as well as the Palestinian sovereignty over the West Bank and east Jerusalem.
Jordan’s 1994 peace treaty with Israel recognizes Jordan’s role as custodian of Christian and Muslim shrines in the city, which Israel captured from the kingdom in the 1967 Mideast War. The Palestinians want the eastern portion of the city as the capital of their future state.
The fate of the city and its shrines is to be determined in final status talks with Israel.
A statement from Jordan’s royal palace said the agreement signed Sunday between Abbas and King Abdullah confirms a verbal deal brokered in 1924.
Abbas’s spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, said that the Palestinian president and the Jordanian king also discussed future cooperation
in light of recent developments in the Middle East, and following last week’s Arab League summit, which approved a Qatari proposal to set up a $1 billion fund for Arab east Jerusalem.
In response to the approval, Abbas said in his speech at the summit: “The Israeli occupation is working in a systematic and hurried way to Judaise east Jerusalem, change its features and uproot its Palestinian residents, attacking the al-Aqsa Mosque and its Muslim and Christian holy sites.”
What if England promised to look after the religious shrines of Washington D.C?
The United Kingdom controlled the US for some years prior to 1776 A.D, and might feel that the capital now has become to Americanized.
The Kingdom of Jordan controlled East Jerusalem from 1948 to 1967. Before 1948, there was not even a “Kingdom of Jordan”.
The so-called “historic rights” to control this city, can at best be based on fairy tales. Because even in the Koran, the city of Jerusalem is not even mentioned. Not even once.
That the Kingdom of Jordan feel it has divine right to look after the “Christian holy sites” in Jerusalem, is fine. Likewise the Bible explains that this divine right was given by God of Israel to the Jewish people. The Jews have since 1967 been good caretakers, and there is no need for a replacement.
Now Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the prophet, a descendant of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, who was over them.
The Kingdom of Jordan’s trace record from 19 years of occupation of the City of David, exposes this Muslim Kingdom as evil doers. More than 50 synagogues were burnt and destroyed by Jordanians from 1948 to 1967.There is absolutely no need for a re-occupation of East Jerusalem.
That Israel in 1994 acknowledged the Kingdom of Jordan’s right to be custodians to Muslim and Christian “Holy cites”, is a mistake. It gives the Muslims the upper hand in their refusal to let Jews and Christians pray at the Temple Mount.
There is a price to pay for Israel’s mistake. From the holiest site of Judaism, Muslim hooligans are permitted to throw stones and indulge in terror against Jews and Christians. The Islamic forces in Jerusalem have never done anything but evil , and will continue to do so after the rule of the final antichrist has been established.
Only Jesus the Messiah will bring an abrupt end to this regime, who will lay the final trap for the Jewish people.
Mind my words.
