New State of Palestine Watchdog And Reference Center


The question that must be addressed is "Can there ever be a New State of Palestine?"

While the political world is always trying to "fix" the problem using secular strategies and logic, they're forever blind to the real issues that govern the opinions and motives of the Israelis and Palestinians. Those reasons are purely religious. More specifically, both sides believe the land that makes up the State of Israel were promised to them through Abraham by the Gods. We say "Gods" because one is Jehovah and the other is Allah. Of course the Muslims will argue both are one in the same, the Jewish peoples flatly  deny this claim. Both consider the opposite view as blasphemous.

What muddies the water even more, it's true promises were in fact made by the God Jehovah to each side regarding their future roles throughout history.  We say "God Jehovah" here because the account of the promises are recorded in the Torah book of Genesis, long before the Islam religion came on the scene through Muhammad.

The promises were given to Abraham regarding his two sons. First there was Ishmael born of his Egyptian servant named Hagar. It's through this lineage the Arab nations and Mohammed would come.

Secondly came Isaac, the son born to Abraham by his wife Sarah. It's through this lineage the Israelite nations would spring.

So we can see this age old dilemma of just who exactly the lands of Israel belong to comes down to understanding the promises


made by God Jehovah, and that task, quite frankly, is easy and obvious. So what's the problem?

The problem is the promise lands of Israel were promised to Isaac. Furthermore, the land was never to be divided, and the lands promised are significantly more than the area the State of Israel now occupies.

It's hard to see any way towards a "Two State" solution. In fact, in order for Jehovah's promise to be completely fulfilled, Israel will need to recapture the entire lands promised to them.

The Next Generation Palestinian


It's been said "if you can get a child when he is 7, you'll have him forever". When it comes to changing the next generation, one has to start when they are very young. Education is the key. It's where you instill the values that you want the next generation to live with. For example, after the fall of Nazi Germany it was imperative the next generation was wiped clean of the notions of Nazism in order for the country to develop into a healthy, peace loving democracy.

In this 88th episode of Pastor Joe Cortes' "Last Days" series, he exposes the methods and motives surrounding the education of modern day Palestinian youth, and a compelling argument for Israel to never give up the Golan Heights area.

The complete "Last Days' series can be found on the Faith Cometh By Hearing website located at Look for the "Teaching Center" where you can choose the "Last Days" series from the list.

Best to start with number one, and move your way towards the present day teaching that Pastor is still adding to the series.

Declaration of the state in 1988

A declaration of a "State of Palestine" took place in Algiers on November 15, 1988, by the Palestinian National Council, the legislative body of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO). The proclaimed "State of Palestine" is not and has never actually been an independent state, as it has never had sovereignty over any territory in history.

Currently, the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), along with the United States, the European Union, and the Arab League, envision the establishment of a State of Palestine to include all or part of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem, living in peace with Israel under a democratically elected and transparent government. The PNA, however, does not claim sovereignty over any territory and therefore is not the government of the "State of Palestine" proclaimed in 1988.

The 1988 declaration was approved at a meeting in Algiers, by a vote of 253-46, with 10 abstentions. The declaration invoked the Treaty of Lausanne (1923) and UN General Assembly Resolution 181 in support of its claim to a "State of Palestine on our Palestinian territory with its capital Jerusalem". The proclaimed "State of Palestine" was recognized immediately by the Arab League, and about half the world's governments recognize it today. It maintains embassies in these countries (which are generally PLO delegations). The State of Palestine is not recognized by the United Nations, although the European Union, as well as most member states, maintain diplomatic ties with the Palestinian Authority, established under the Oslo Accords. Leila Shahid, envoy of the PNA to France since 1984, was named in November 2005 representing of the PNA for Europe.

The declaration is generally interpreted to have recognized Israel within its pre-1967 boundaries, or was at least a major step on the path to recognition. Just as in Israel's declaration of independence, it partly bases its claims on UN GA 181. By reference to "resolutions of Arab Summits" and "UN resolutions since 1947" (like SC 242) it implicitly and perhaps ambiguously restricted its immediate claims to the Palestinian territories and Jerusalem. It was accompanied by a political statement that explicitly mentioned SC 242 and other UN resolutions and called only for withdrawal from "Arab Jerusalem" and the other "Arab territories occupied." Yasser Arafat's statements in Geneva a month later were accepted by the United States as sufficient to remove the ambiguities it saw in the declaration and to fulfill the long held conditions for open dialogue with the United States.

Current proposals

The current position of the Palestinian Authority is that all of the West Bank and Gaza Strip should form the basis of a future Palestinian state.

The main discussion during the last fifteen years has focused on turning most or the whole of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank into an independent Palestinian state. This was the basis for the Oslo accords and it is favored by the U.S. The status of Israel within the 1949 Armistice lines has not been the subject of international negotiations. Some members of the PLO recognize Israel's right to exist within these boundaries; others hold that Israel must eventually be destroyed. Consequently, some Israelis hold that Palestinian statehood is impossible with the current PLO as a basis, and needs to be delayed.

The specific points and impediments to the establishment of a Palestinian state are listed below. They are a part of a greater mindset difference. Israel declares that its security demands that a Palestinian entity would not have all attributes of a state, at least initially, so that in case things go wrong, Israel would not have to face a dangerous and nearby enemy. Israel may be therefore said to agree (as of now) not to a complete and independent Palestinian state, but rather to a self-administering entity, with partial but not full sovereignty over its borders and its citizens.

The central Palestinian position is that they have already compromised greatly by accepting a state covering only the areas of the West Bank and Gaza. These areas are significantly less territory than allocated to the Arab state in UN Resolution 181. They feel that it is unacceptable for an agreement to impose additional restrictions (such as level of militarization, see below) which, they declare, makes a viable state impossible. In particular, they are angered by significant increases in the population of Israeli settlements and communities in the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the interim period of the Oslo accords. Palestinians claim that they have already waited long enough, and that Israel's interests do not justify depriving their state of those rights that they consider important. The Palestinians have been unwilling to accept a territorially disjointed state. It is feared that it would face difficulties similar to Bantustans.

During the Annapolis conference, then Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, offered East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine and 99.3% of the West Bank, in which .7% of the land would constitute as a safe passage between the borders of Israel and Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas rejected the offer.

Palestinian view

The Palestinian People see the mass immigration - mainly from Europe, the United States of America, and Arabic countries - of modern-day Israelis to this region of the world, their acts of warfare, and the establishment of the state of Israel as an act of illegal occupation. This occupation has consequences for hundreds of thousands of Arab Palestinians living in refugee camps in several countries in the world, including destruction of villages perpetrated against those Palestinians that are still living in their land today, and the increase in Israeli settlements in the remaining Palestinian villages and lands.

Israeli views

The traditional Israeli view has been that there is no such thing as a separate Palestinian people, distinct from other Arabs, at least historically. The borders of historical Palestine and surrounding countries were arbitrarily determined and there are already several Arab nations. Therefore, it is unreasonable to demand that Israel should have any responsibility or part in establishing a nation for them. This is summarized by the famous statement of Israeli Prime Minister (1969-74) Golda Meir: "There was no such thing as Palestinians ... It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist."

Arab views

Before the creation of Israel, Arab leaders supported the creation of a united Arab state encompassing all Arab peoples including Palestine, so that no independent Palestinian state would exist, but this became a minority view amongst Palestinians during the British Mandate, and after 1948 became rare. It is still an opinion expressed regularly in the Arab states outside Palestine (especially Syria due to its attachment to the Greater Syria Movement which was launched in 1944 to establish a "Syrian Arab" state that would include Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Palestine.) However, it is generally recognized that such a development has become implausible under current political realities and even those who might favor it in some circumstances support an independent Palestinian state as the most achievable option.

Syria joined Egypt in founding the United Arab Republic (UAR) in 1958 during a period of Pan-Arabism as the first step toward the recreation of Pan-Arab state. The UAR was to include, among others, Palestine. The UAR disintegrated into its constituent states in 1961.

Egypt held Gaza and Jordan annexed the West Bank between 1948 and 1967. During those years, Egyptian President Nasser created the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1964. In 1959 Fatah was formed in Kuwait City, Kuwait by a group of ex-pat Palestinian professionals, including Yasser Arafat working in the Gulf states, with similar aims.

Nowadays, most Arabs (Christians and Muslims), and some anti-zionists Jews, support Palestinians' rights to self-determination and support Palestinian refugees and their right to return to their homes and lands of origin in Palestine (what it is now Israel and Palestinian territories)

Why All The Fuss With The
Tiny State Of Israel?

What is it about the tiny State of Israel that has the entire middle east community wanting to destroy it? Why is it that Israel is able to hold off their enemies being they are surrounded on every side, and outnumbered and outgunned on a grand scale?

Why is it the Palestinians must be crammed into the 8,367 square miles of today's State of Israel, compared to the surrounding 1,893,401 square miles of the countries that surround them?

In this 86th episode of Pastor Joe Cortes' "Last Days" series, he details the seemingly significant disadvantages Israel has with all their surrounding enemies.


The Hatred of Old Against The State of Israel


Where does the hatred of Israel stem from? One has to search the Biblical history that shows the divisions between the Israelites and Arab nations. Now you may not believe that a God called Jehovah created all things, or the stories in the Bible are factual, that doesn't matter, what matters is, the Israelites and the Arab peoples do. Specifically the claim Abraham was their father, and their rightful inheritance includes the lands of Israel God promised to Abraham. This is where the conflict starts. The question comes down to which side is the rightful heir.

In this study, Pastor Joe Cortes analyzes the Biblical scripture to discover where the long held hatred towards Israel began, and follows its effects through history right up to the modern day stand off and warfare at the borders of Israel.

In this 87th episode of Pastor Joe Cortes' "Last Days" series, he explains the history and motives behind the exaggerated aggression towards the prophetical land of Israel, and its future.
