Finance minister refuses to set ultimatum to Netanyahu, says “peace agreement” would improve Israeli economy.
Failure to reach a peace deal with the Palestinians will devastate the economy and harm Israel’s relationship with the US, warned Finance
Minister Yair Lapid on Monday, as he addressed American Jewish leaders in Jerusalem.
“The results might be nothing less but devastating to the private welfare of each and every Israeli citizen,” said Lapid, who heads the Yesh Atid party.
Such a failure would make “our economy more vulnerable to any kind of international sanctions or boycott,” Lapid said.

The Messiah was very direct and blunt when he said the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. It is also evil enough, to bring an end to the Zionist state of Israel.
Secular Israelis like Yair Lapid thnk about “god” as a mythological figure. They have learned about the History of the Jews in their days of education, but never felt that the lesson from the past is relevant for understanding our days.
The believing Nationalist Jewish community is threatened by the minister of Finance. The message is clear: “If you do not submit to the Islamic inspired American “peace plan”, we will no longer fund your kindergarten and synagogues in Judea and Samaria”.
What are the scriptures saying about our present age, and in particular the days ahead?
2 Timothy 3:1
But mark this: there will be terrible times in the last days.
How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that this will not take place in winter, because those will be days of distress unequalled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now – and never to be equalled again. ‘If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them.
How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people.
The Messiah foretold these events. He said those who believe must be ready for horrible times, just as He is about to return as the Lion of Judah. No we are there. Be ready for a rocky ride. Those who still stand up for the truth will be persecuted.
