JNS.org – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statement on Friday charging the Palestinian Authority (PA) with intentions of “ethnic cleansing” by hoping to establish a state in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) with “no Jews” continues to make waves.

In Sunday’s Israeli cabinet meeting, Yuval Steinitz (Likud), the national infrastructure, energy and water resources minister, voiced his support for Netanyahu.

“It’s not the prime minister who talks about ethnic cleansing. [His] remarks reflect what the Palestinians themselves say,” Steinitz said. “[The Palestinians] talk about ethnic cleansing in their own school system and speeches. Netanyahu told the truth.”

Steinitz added that “when the Palestinians talk about being ‘cleansed’ of Jews, they don’t mean just [in] Judea and Samaria, but rather the entire country.”

    Israel is isolated internationally because they are Israel. Palestine exists as lapdogs for the caliphate to eradicate Israel. The Palestinians are like carnies putting on a dog and ponie show. In fact most of the whole world has started participating in various obtuse ways. The players are lignin get up those who are with Israel and those who adamantly oppose her. Now watch the frequency of plagues, pestilence, floods, volcanoes, sinkholes, civil unrest, hail, earthquakes….God is on the war path and the world is about to be taught who the real God is. So be warned in advance if you join with those out to slay Israel be prepared to face the consequences. And if Palestine wants to know their true fate if they do not make a turnaround read Obadiah. This world is about to face the slaughter of people, entire civilizations, country’s….it is the time for the reaping of the tares, the Devil is going to get his dues and everyone who goes for Israels jugular is going to be turned to ashes. Four of Gods angels could completely kill everyone in China and leave every building standing in minutes or seconds thats what kind of fire power your dealing with and if you think you can bring God to the mat you are suffering from a delusional mental disorder which means you have chose to join with the scoffers.
