Palestinian UN Bid Aims to Force Solution on Israel

Prophecy Sign:  Dividing the Holy Land, (and the false covenant of peace)

I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. Joel 3:2 NIV

Palestinian UN Bid Aims to Force Solution on Israel
Jordan plans to present a resolution to the U.N. Security Council on Monday on behalf of the Palestinians, chief Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat said. The resolution aims to avoid U.S.-backed peace talks and force a solution on Israel within a few years. It calls for an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 borders. That would divide Jerusalem and uproot hundreds of thousands of Israelis from their biblical homeland to make a Palestinian state. Erekat said the Palestinian strategy is to change the status quo. "This status quo is not sustainable and will not continue…Either this Palestinian Authority will lead Palestinians from occupation to independence, or Israel -- the occupying power -- will resume its full responsibilities as an occupying power," Erekat said.

Palestinian statehood resolution to be presented at UN 
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced on Monday that the statehood resolution will be presented to the UN Security Council at 12.30 New York time today. Abbas told Fatah leaders in Ramallah that he believes it would take 24 hours to translate the resolution. He said that the Security Council would then vote on the resolution, which calls for setting a timeline for an Israeli pullout to the pre-1967 lines. Abbas said that the Palestinians will decide on their future moves regardless of the result of the vote, but did not elaborate.

New Palestinian bid calls for E. Jerusalem capital, ‘just’ solution
A draft resolution calling for an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines within three years and revised to include language declaring East Jerusalem as capital of a Palestinian state was presented to the UN Security Council late Monday. Arab ambassadors endorsed the Palestinian amendments to the resolution, while Washington said it would not support the move. The draft resolution, obtained by The Associated Press, affirms the urgent need to achieve “a just, lasting and comprehensive peaceful solution” to the decades-old Palestinian-Israeli conflict within 12 months and sets a December 31, 2017 deadline for Israel’s occupation to end.
