Palestinian flag flies over U.N. - Biblical Prophecy Unfolding?
Wednesday’s announcement by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas that the Palestinians will no longer abide by the Oslo Accords and the raising of the flag of Palestine for the first time over the United Nations in New York could be ominous signs for the future of peace in the Middle East, say experts in Bible prophecy.
“It’s a precursor to the United Nations recognizing Palestine,” Cahn told WND.
And it comes about a month after Pope Francis and the Vatican recognized the state of Palestine.
“Palestine is the name given to the land of Israel by the Romans, who sought to erase the connection of the Jewish people to the Promised Land. It literally means ‘Land of the Philistines,’” Cahn said.
In other words, the very name, “Palestine” was given to the area as a snub to the Jewish people because the Philistines were their ancient biblical enemy.
At the same moment the flag was raised, Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, told the world that the Oslo Accord Peace Agreement was now dead and the Palestinians would no longer be bound by the Accords.
“All security agreements with Israel are now annulled. He called on Palestinians to resist Israel,” Cahn said. “All of these things will tend toward conflict and possibly war.”
