The Country of Israel has now become a “nation-state of the Jewish people” to the outrage of its Arab citizens who now are officially second-class members of the country. This is the final blow to the Palestinian people’s dream of having a legitimate State with East Jerusalem as its capital. 97% of the new housing permits in the West Bank are going to the Jewish settlers. Palestinian homes are being leveled because of Israel’s claim that they were built illegally. Most of these homes were built decades ago when they were forced to move for expansion of Jewish settlements. The declaration also downgrades Arab language from official to one with a “special status.”
The government under the leadership of Mr. Netanyahu is the most right-wing and conservative in the 70-year history of the country. His administration has been fighting corruption charges for years. The movement of the American embassy to Jerusalem and the Trump administration support has increased his determination to move ahead with his de facto annexation of parts of the West Bank to the detriment of the Palestinians now living under military occupation and control of their every movement.
The walls separating the two groups that call Israel home now has the final brick of exclusion for “the Jewish state.” The stage is now set for misery and suffering on both sides of this historical decision. The Anti-Christ is waiting patiently for the times that will surely come to pass.
