Middle East takes centre stage

September 29, 2018   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

Arab leaders, European heads of state and US President Donald Trump all defended their varying positions on the civil war in Syria, the occupation in Palestine and the increase of tensions between Iran and the US, at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.

US President Donald Trump proudly claimed to the assembly that “peace was advanced” in the Middle East by naming Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

Having arrived late to the 73rd UN General Assembly, Trump broke with tradition and was the third world leader to speak at this year’s session, instead of talking first as host to the United Nations.

His comments over the Jerusalem declaration, widely seen as dangerously counterproductive by the international community, comes as reports emerged that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas plans to organise a conference to thwart Trump’s peace plan for Israel and Palestine, known as “the deal of the century”.

Despite starting late, Trump wasted no time in talking up his administration.

His claim early in his speech that “in less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country” drew rumblings from the assembled world leaders, with many of them breaking into open laughter. “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK,” Trump responded, clearly taken aback.

Trump began by praising Saudi Arabia, Israel and other allies for pursuing reform agendas that will make their “countries great again”.

    The Rapture is first, to take saints to the marriage super. The tribulation is for the Jews to repent & acknowledge Jesus as God. Jesus will return with saints to save his people & reign on earth. Amir Tsarfatti

    Yes. Let’s start WW3 over Jerusalem becoming Israel’s capital. Silly people. Israel has given and given. But instead of being thankful Iran and others want them gone from the face of the earth. Israel should not give up one bit of land. But Revelation tells us they will. And the end of the age begins

    Well, I mean, Trump didn’t make all elementary school children undress in front of the opposite sex or in front of sexual deviance or anything super “great”, like Obama did, but still, Trump is pretty good; considering he’s not the first gay president like Obama or the first black president like Obama or the first Muslim president like Obama. If you don’t believe me that Obama is the first gay president or if you take issue with me saying that, DO NOT take issue with me! Take issue with Newsweek. It was their front cover!! https://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2012/05/newsweek-cover-the-first-gay-president-123283
