The world has changed since Oct. 7, 2023. Lest you have forgotten: On that day, heavily armed monsters with detailed plans shot people in their cars; shot concertgoers fleeing on foot, in the back; tossed grenades onto families; bound, tortured, raped, broke the bones of and murdered women; mutilated the elderly; shot and burned children; cut off fingers, feet, toes, breasts; gouged out eyes; torched people alive; decapitated adults and babies, at least one of whom was slashed out of its mother’s womb. They recorded it all and posted it online to brag to the world what they had done. And much of the world cheered and even joined in on threatening and attacking Jews across the globe.
How did Israel’s superpower ally respond?
Days later, Joe Biden acknowledged the atrocities of the Hamas attack and its connection to the historic hatred against Jewish people; he called for Israel’s response to be “swift, decisive and overwhelming”; he warned other enemies of Israel who might be tempted to join the fight, “Don’t”; he diverted an aircraft carrier to the region; and he ordered deliveries of armament supplies to Israel.
But this response is deceptive.
First, Joe Biden acting as United States president is a deception. The 2020 election was stolen, and the Constitution that legitimizes and empowers the presidency was usurped. And further, this pretender to the presidency isn’t even really in power. He is a decoy controlled by Barack Hussein Obama (visit AmericaUnderAttack.com).
Biden and Obama’s response to the Hamas massacre is layered with even more deception. Yes, Biden has expended taxpayer dollars for Israel’s rocket interceptor missiles. But he has also directed expenditure of taxpayer dollars that the terrorists use to launch the rockets in the first place! He reversed a policy from President Donald Trump and resumed sending hundreds of millions to Palestinians, including Hamas. Obama—during his presidency and now through Biden—saved Iran’s radical, dictatorial, terrorist-sponsoring Islamist regime from at least one popular uprising by the Iranian people, and from U.S.-led sanctions and financial and economic ruin through a consistent series of shocking decisions. These have included about $2 billion in cash in 2015 and 2016; the infamous nuclear deal of Jan. 16, 2016; $6 billion promised on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2023; and $10 billion released in November 2023.
Biden and Obama have also both engaged in rhetoric equivalent to “both sides are to blame.” Biden was accused of talking one way to Democrat Islamist supporters and another to Democrat Jewish supporters. It also emerged that the U.S. government was forcing Israel to delay its ground invasion into Gaza and its Hamas strongholds. At the same time, Kamala Harris diverted attention to a “national strategy to counter Islamophobia.” Obama, while issuing statements appearing to support Israel, also said things that clearly undermined that support. In a Nov. 4, 2023, interview, for example, he said, “If you want to solve the problem, then you have to take in the whole truth. And then you have to admit nobody’s hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree.” He said that “what’s happening to Palestinians is unbearable.” He also warned that Israel’s counterattack “could ultimately backfire.” This will certainly prove true if he has anything to say about it.
Statements like these portray Israel as part of the problem rather than the clear victim of racist, genocidal butchery. Can you imagine President Franklin Roosevelt responding to Kristallnacht by hyping a “national strategy to counter Germanophobia” and telling Jews that “nobody’s hands are clean”?
Since President Bill Clinton pushed through the Oslo i Accord in 1993 on the White House lawn with Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian terrorist Yasser Arafat, the U.S. government has repeatedly pressured Israel to release prisoners and cede land and control to its Islamist insurgents: Jericho and Gaza (1994); Bethlehem, Jenin, Nablus, Qalqilya, Ramallah and Tulkarm (1995); Hebron (1997); more West Bank areas (1998); southern Lebanon (2000); the rest of Gaza (2005); and more, with suicide bombers and other killers savagely murdering civilians continually. As my father, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry, has written, Hosea 5:13 shows that this “peace process,” purportedly designed to cure the wound, is the wound. (Read more about this in Chapter 2 of his booklet Jerusalem in Prophecy.)
Obama’s Israel policy is deepening this wound. He is treating Israel, a parliamentary democracy with freedom for all religions, and Gaza, a tyrannical radical Islamic theocracy, as if they are equivalent. This makes no sense until you realize that no matter how vile the actions of the Palestinians, Obama seeks to carve out of Israel a sovereign radical Islamic Palestinian state.
Remember Obama’s infamous Cairo speech. His first major Middle East foreign-policy speech in 2009 rejected the legitimacy of Israeli settlements and emphasized that Palestinians “endure the daily humiliations—large and small—that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: The situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. And America will not turn its back on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity and a state of their own.”
This high-flown rhetoric defies reality. Hamas gives its people no dignity or opportunity, steals money and supplies from them, uses them as human shields, kills them when they disobey, and throws its Palestinian political rivals off of rooftops. Its charter explicitly states that the entire organization, an extension of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, exists to “obliterate” Israel. Yet Obama is conducting American foreign policy, through Biden, in favor of this organization that is the very definition of a terrorist regime.
“Obama-Biden et al, want a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians,” Mark Bradman wrote. “I believe all efforts are underway to exploit the Oct. 7, 2023, terrorist attack to advance that agenda. [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is being carefully painted into a position where the survival of Israel will be contingent upon accepting this two-state solution, which essentially means—in the long picture—the elimination of the Israeli state” (Conservative Treehouse, Oct. 19, 2023).
That is why Obama and Biden are sending $100 million to the Palestinians—not to mention tens of billions and a pathway to nuclear weapons for the king of Islamic terror, Iran. They need to prop up Hamas and keep Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu weak long enough to force through the long-sought-after two-state “solution.” Yet this “solution” would destroy Israel.
Hamas does not want peace. This unmistakable truth was punctuated in the most monstrous way imaginable on October 7. As Hamas has said since that fateful day, it wants land, weapons, money, diplomatic cover. Hamas official Ghazi Hamad proclaimed in an October 24 interview that October 7 “is just the first time, and there will be a second, a third, a fourth” until Israel is completely annihilated. “On October 7—October 10, October 1 million—everything we do is justified.”
Barack Obama’s push for a Palestinian state even after October 7 is breaking the brotherhood that has bound America and Israel together for decades. Many Jews are recognizing that they can no longer rely on America to protect them from radical Islam.
“For the better part of the past decade, the United States has pursued a foreign policy designed to strengthen Iran and enable it to form a strong sphere of influence in the region,” Israeli journalist Liel Leibovitz wrote. “When you champion Iran; when you send it and its proxies money; when you reward Palestinian violence; when you go out of your way to portray Bibi [Netanyahu] as a dangerous fascist; when you finance and champion his opponents, contributing to further instability and unrest; when you hand over U.S. intelligence keys to Iranian agents; when you have your spokespeople declare it ‘disinformation’ for people to connect obvious dots; when you do all of this, you know what is going to happen. You mean for it to happen” (Tablet, Oct. 7, 2023).
He continued, voicing what many people are realizing: “Here today, then, is the challenge for Israel’s leadership: Can you accept that this is what’s happening? Can you imagine a future for the Jewish state decoupled from America? Because you must.”
This sad state of affairs was prophesied in your Bible. The Prophet Isaiah described a dramatic unraveling in the relationship between America and Israel to occur before the appearance of the Messiah.
“The Syrians before and the Philistines behind; And they shall devour Israel with an open mouth. … Manasseh shall devour Ephraim, and Ephraim Manasseh; Together they shall be against Judah” (Isaiah 9:12, 21; New King James Version). These verses describe a time when Israel is under attack from Syrians in the north and Philistines in the south. Yet rather than banding together, the Israelite tribes of Manasseh (the United States) and Ephraim (Britain) devour each other and attack the tribe of Judah (Israel).
This is what most foreign-policy analysts do not understand. They believe Obama wants a two-state solution because he sincerely wants Jews to live side-by-side in peace with Hamas and the Palestinians. But the Bible reveals that America “shall be against Judah” in the end time; Obama is against Judah and has been drastically reorienting U.S. foreign policy in favor of the Palestinians and Iran.
Losing East Jerusalem
Based on prophecies such as Zechariah 11:14 and Hosea 5:13, the Trumpet has been predicting division between America, Britain and the Jews for many years. In the former verse, God said He would “break the brotherhood between Judah [the State of Israel] and Israel [primarily the United States and Britain].” In the latter verse, God foretells that when Judah finally sees that America and Britain are providing no help, Judah will turn to Assyria (Germany).
My father further noted in 2004 that Zechariah 11:14 prophesies a rift between the United States and Judah, “one that would leave Judah very alone, just before half of Jerusalem is taken over by the Arabs.” He speculated that America’s deteriorating willpower may be the cause of this rift. Yet shockingly, it now seems like the American government under Obama and Biden is deliberately trying to goad the Palestinians into seizing control of East Jerusalem.
Obama’s foreign-policy decisions set the stage for the current terror and war between Hamas and Israel, and the Bible says Israel will eventually lose East Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount—but not through negotiation. A radical Islamic insurgence will take half the city by force!
“Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city” (Zechariah 14:1-2).
This is an end-time prophecy, as verses 3 and 4 make undeniably clear: “Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.”
Israel has lost America, is on the verge of losing East Jerusalem, and is about to lose its land and the lives of many of its people. But there is hope. The very same scriptures revered by both Jews and Christians prophesy that these dire events will occur, but they will occur directly before the Messiah returns—to Jerusalem!
