United States Pushes for a Palestinian State

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken ordered his department to prepare policy options concerning U.S. recognition of a Palestinian state, Axios reported Wednesday, citing two U.S. officials.

This marks a massive policy change in America’s Middle East relations.

[W]e support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, and we do a lot of work inside the government to think about how to bring that about. [W]e are actively pursuing the establishment of an independent Palestinian state—with real security guarantees for Israel, because we do believe that is the best way to bring about lasting peace and security for Israel, for Palestinians, and for the region.
—Matthew Miller, State Department spokesperson

Fact check: Miller claimed “there has been no policy shift in the administration. We have made quite clear publicly that we support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state,” he said. “That has been the policy of the United States for some time. It has been the policy of this administration.”

But as Axios pointed out:

[T]he fact the State Department is even considering such options signals a shift in thinking within the Biden administration on possible Palestinian statehood recognition. …

For decades, U.S. policy has been to oppose the recognition of Palestine as a state both bilaterally and in [United Nations] institutions and to stress Palestinian statehood should only be achieved through direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

‘Peace’ process: For decades, Israel has tried to trade land for peace with its Palestinian neighbors. This has not worked, and Bible prophecy says it will never work.

The Bible prophesies specifically about the Israeli peace process. One such prophecy warns that America “shall be against” Israel.

The fact that the U.S. has pivoted toward Palestinian support shows how this prophecy may soon come to pass. These trends will prompt Israel to turn elsewhere for help.
