Genesis 12:6-7 – “Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land. Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, "To your descendants I will give this land." And there he built an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him.
Genesis 50:24 – “And Joseph said to his brethren, "I am dying; but G-d will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land to theland of which He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob."
Exodus 6:8 – “Then the Lord (Adonai) said to Moses…say to the Children of Israel…I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the Lord.’"
Exodus 33:1 – “Then the Lord (Adonai) saidto Moses, "Depart and go up from here, you and the people whom you have brought out of the land of Egypt, to the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, ‘To your descendants I will give it.’
One of the main obstacles in the creation of a Palestinian State in the Land of Israel is that the ancestral people of modern Palestinians were the ancient Philistines who were always tribal enemies of Israel. Embedded within the matrix of this land that was promised to the descendants of the Patriarch Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, reside also the remnants of the Amalekites who as a wandering Bedouin tribe had a genetically bred hatred to the Children of Israel.
Notwithstanding, these ancient peoples have intermingled over the centuries, and today, many of them consider themselves to be one. The rest of the gentile world are considering geo-political options to achieve peace between the feuding families of two warring brothers, one of which was unwilling to accept that the “Birthright Blessing” was legally given to the other. Yet, these nations are considering political options that they would never consider to institute within their own countries, to give disputed territories resided in the midst of their sovereign country, until today. It was tried once by the Europeans when they forced the Czechoslovakian government to allow the Nazi troops to mediate disputes between German-Czech relationships in German dominated provinces in the midst of the land of a Czech sovereign state. Within one year, the Czech government, one of the strongest military governments with protected mountain range barrier protection, was overcome by the German Nazi forces.
Consider the American Indians, felt by some biblical scholars to be descendants of the House of Manasseh, who clearly had an undisputed claim to the lands of the United States. Their warriors were destroyed by the great powers of the White Man, but there would have been no consideration to providing them with a sovereign land in the midst of the United States. Instead, the American Indians were hunted, pillaged, and marginalized into Indian tribal land that were non-productive and had no native mineral or water resources. As a people, they were terrorized by the American military and eventually subjugated them when the last of their tribal chiefs, Chief Geronimo, was captured and subjected to traveling America in a “pay for view” exhibition to demonstrate American power and prowess.
Within the land of Israel, 20% of the populations of Israel are non-Jews of Arab descent that are the descendants of the 156,000 that remained before the War against Israel by the Arab States in 1948 had started. On the heels of the battle against Great Britain, when the Israeli Freedom Fighters called the Irgun finally destroyed the British Mandate and gained control over the land promised to them by the world government in order to provide a national homeland for all people.
The international mandate to provide a homeland for the Jewish people began with the 1917 Balfour Declaration, recognized on April 24, 1920 by the post-World War I Allied Supreme Council with the signing of the “San Remo Resolution” in St. Remo, Italy. The authors of this document declared that this was “the foundation document of the State of Israel, a legal existence of which is directly traceable from that document”. Yet, the Jewish people were unable to exercise their sovereignty because the British government, descendants of the House of Ephraim, prevented the Jews from populating and governing their own national land for 28 years.
Not only that, the British Mandate for Palestine was created to give the Jewish people a new homeland in their native land. It was later incorporated into American law in the year of 1924. Of most interest, according to the provisions of the American law, as voted on by America, this mandate that was to provide a homeland for the Jewish people "was a constitution for the projected Jewish state that made no provision for an Arab state and which especially prohibited the partition of the country."
With the abrogation of the Obama administration in the United States to deny the Jewish people, as the only people in the entire world to build homes and live in the regions of Shomron and Judea, sets up a precedent unknown in international law. Americans, Europeans, Japanese and Chinese can buy land and build homes in these regions but the Jewish people who have already established mortgages and built homelands are now threatened by the international courts to be exiled from the lands that have international recognition to be their national homeland.
Today, 20% of the population of Israel are Arabs of non-Jewish descent. Of the original populations of 950,000 Arabs living in the land of Palestine prior to the Israeli War of Independence first against Great Britain and later a coalition of five Arab States who sought to destroy the institution of this Israeli homeland, 85% of the Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled by their own Arab leaders against the wishes of the Jewish leader before or in the aftermath of the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. Of the 156,000 Arabs that remained, they were not expelled, their mosques and houses of worship were preserved and a majority of Arab Palestinians who chose to assimilate into the Israeli economy were given citizenship within the State of Israel. They even had the privilege of having their own representation in the Israeli Knesset. Today, they are a viable part of the Israeli economy. Today their Arab descendants form 20% of the Israeli population.
It was estimated that in the year of 1948, 881,000 Jews lived in the Arab countries of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, and Aden. According to an article by Professor Ada Aharoni titled, “The Forced Migration of Jews from Arab Countries” it tells a more enlightening history.
Professor Ada Aharoni – “The vast immigration of Jews from the Arab countries has been termed "The Second Exodus"2. The State of Israel served as a natural refuge for the majority of Jews from Arab countries. Some departed independently, others were involved in massive rescue organized by the local communities and the Israeli authorities. Outstanding examples are the Jews of Yemen and Iraq, who were airlifted en masse to Israel between 1948 and 1951. Similarly, the Jewish community of Libya was almost entirely relocated to Israel. A total of 586,269 Jews from Arab countries arrived in Israel3 with at least 200,000 emigrating to France, England and the Americas. Including their offspring, the total number of Jews who were displaced from their homes in Arab countries and who live in Israel today is 1,136,436, about 41% of the total population. At least another 500,000 currently reside in France, Canada, the United States, Latin America and Australia.
The high influx of Jews from Arab countries into Israel shortly after its establishment as a state had a significant influence on the demographic make-up of its population. In 1931, only 1 out of every 4 Jews living in the Land of Israel came from Asia and Africa. By 1948 there were still only 70,000 of the latter in Israel, as compared to 253,661 Israeli-born Jews and 393,013 Jews from Europe and America, out of a total population of 716,678 Jews3.
In the early 50's the picture changed dramatically. By 1951, Jews from Arab countries made up nearly 30% of the entire population 4. This unusually rapid change in the demographic make-up of the population was due to the thousands of Jews that were pouring into Israel as a result of persecutions in Arab countries. During the years 1948 and 1951, nearly 50% of all immigrants, totaling 387,000 came from Asia and Africa, with a similar number coming, at that time, from Europe and America. During the two-year period from 1955 to 1957, the percentage of Jews from Arab countries arriving in Israel rose to 69%5. In 1955 this group represented 92% of all immigrants. Approximately 100,000 came during those years from Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia6.
The majority of Jewish refugees from Arab lands arrived in Israel during the first three years of statehood. Of the total 586,070 that arrived to date, nearly 400,000 entered the country between 1948 and 1951. The effects of this mass immigration in such a short period of time can also be observed in the total population increase for those years. Before May 15, 1948, there were little more than 700,000 Jews living in Israel, by 1951 the population figure doubled to 1,404,400.”

While 586,000 Jews were forcibly exiled from their homes in Arab countries while their entire possessions, lands, homes, and personal belongings were confiscated by the Arab states, there have been no forced exiles of groups of Arabs by the Israelis that were sent back to their Arab homelands except those who voluntarily fled before the Arab war. Truly there was a loss of property of those not living in the land of Israel, who left prior to the Islamic invasion against the State of Israel in 1948. The Arab lands that was empty and abandoned by the Arabs was transferred the Israeli State according to the new laws of the State that included the Absentee Property Law of 1950 and the Land Acquisition Law of 1953. It was this “Land” that was the “Promised Land” to the Jewish people and eventually the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel.
The international pressure forcing the Jewish people to seek policies of Arab exclusion instead of inclusion began with the Oslo Accord. This was a secretly contrived political project by the Papacy in Rome. The agitation of Palestinian nationalism in a land that at the turn of the 20th century was virtually unwanted by most Arabs, except the Bedouins who lived off the land suggest that international fomentation was being prodded along by Rome. This has led to the entire crisis between the Arab and the Jews.
According to the Jewish ideal, the G-d of Israel gave this land as a covenant to His chosen ones of the House of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Altogether, this entire Land of Israel west of the Jordan River is only about 10% of the entire Arab State possessions in the Middle East. The city of Jerusalem was a forsaken land, even by Allah, and whose name was never memorialized in the Quran. In fact, in the mid 19th century, this land of Israel was virtually ignored by Arabs.
The existential facts remain, the Arabs have not remained as a peaceful element that wish to cohabitated and collaborate with the Jewish people in creating a harmonious environment for both peoples. Money cannot buy, nor do weapons and military training provide the necessary ingredients for peace and harmonious coexistence. Divine destiny give the Jewish people the will to struggle even over decades, and the will to persevere. The history of the two maps above provides that testimony. Without a vision of a future, the gradual reclamation and redemption of the land for Jewish possession would never have been accomplished. It was not provided for by American weapons and technology for the Israeli culture is a culture of life, and the Islamic culture of a culture of possession or death.
Millions of pages have been written about the millennium long feuds within the House of Abraham. He had two sons, one by his real wife and one by his secondary wife. The child Isaac, of the first wife Sara, was destined to receive the family inheritance and blessing. The child Ishmael was born to Abraham’s surrogate wife, his concubine, Hagar the Egyptian. Ishmael was destined to father a great people by twelve sons, while later the son of Isaac, Jacob, later named Israel, was also destined to father also twelve sons, who establish many nations and empires. Power, greed and control shattered a family harmony that now today threatens the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation.
Is there a way out of this global chaos? Without a Messiah and the destruction of all the provocateurs of evil, death and destruction, there will be no peace. Underneath all the peace according are the secret desires of genetic hatred and greed. As the maps give testimony, for the last sixty years, the G-d of Israel has given His signature that He is fighting with His own people. What other testimony or evidence do we need?
Exekiel 36:22, 24-28 (parts) - “Thus says the Adonai G-d, “I do not do this for your sake, O House of Israel, but for My holy Name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went…I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land…
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you…I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statuettes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your G-d.”
Ezekiel 37:19-22 (parts) - “Thus says the Lord G-d: ‘Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions, and I will join them with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand…Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all.”
