The Oracle Has Spoken

| sun, december 12, 2010 |

On Friday night, at the Brookings Institution's Saban Center for Middle East Policy Seventh Annual Forum, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the expected; the United States of America is moving forward with a continuing engagement to "achieve a two-state solution that will end the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians once and for all."

As expected, Clinton went on to make some statements that are not only troubling, but also extremely disturbing. With these statements, comes greater understanding and further clarity as we presently look down at what lies before the feet of the United States of America. Her path has come to the abyss.

It is my prayer that by presenting these comments to other HOLY SPIRIT filled believers, the LIGHT of JESUS CHRIST will produce a clear and unadulterated picture of just how damning these statements will be for the once "Great Nation" called United States of America.


I feel that it is of grave importance to understand that Mrs. Clinton is not just some speaker presenting opinions to an inquisitive crowd or lecturing hall; she is in actuality something entirely different. She is an oracle that speaks on behalf of the United States of America.

I believe that it is through the words of her message that we, being led of the HOLY SPIRIT, are capable of seeing the dark intent and motives currently motivating the end-time attacks toward the Jewish State of Israel. As the Babylonian spirits continue to manifest, the intensity of such assaults will continue to escalate. It is with such statements and "policy positions" that actively place the United States of America in direct rebellion against the MOST HIGH.

We, as the children of GOD, must evaluate the message that this oracle of the United States of America is presenting not as if it came merely from the lips of flesh, but rather understand that this message was motivated by demonic spirits from antiquity and manifested through the lips of flesh. Do not be blind or complacent to the message that has been openly put forth to the nations by this oracle, such a message should not be dismissed as merely another attempt at geopolitics, but must be seen as war chatter and strategic movements of spiritual wickedness actively at enmity with JEHOVAH.

Please pray about the following statements. I have selected several that I believe express the seriousness of the hour.

I have felt it necessary to present the following material with limited commentary. As led I will post further commentary.

God Bless, daniel

I have broken up the following comments into categories and placed them under headings which I feel best describes the comment being addressed. I have kept all comments in their original context, changing only the order in which they were said when I categorized the statements into similar groups. I fully recommend a full reading of the original transcript.

Statements by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be in italics with all bold letters being my emphasis. All excerpts, unless otherwise noted, are from the State Deptment transcript of Hillary Clinton's speech at the Brookings Institution's Saban Center for Middle East Policy Seventh Annual Forum on the evening of December 11, 2010.

Setting the Stage

The United States will always be there when Israel is threatened. We say it often, but it bears repeating: America's commitment to Israel's security and its future is rock solid and unwavering, and that will not change. From our first days in office, the Obama Administration has reaffirmed this commitment. For me and for President Obama, this is not simply a policy position. It is also a deeply held personal conviction.

This sounds great, but it is not a blessing. It is an example of deception. One can only support Israel by being committed to GOD's plan for Israel. Israel's security lies only in the hands of JEHOVAH and upon the rock of His Son JESUS CHRIST. When the United States uses the carrot of security to lure Israel off the Covenant Land that is currently held, the US is effectively cursing the plan of JEHOVAH, thus attempting to thwart the will of GOD.

Studying what is being said in this statement clearly reveals the position of the spiritual wickedness being manifested. Keep in mind that deception is often spoken in double speak, and just as an angel of Light can seem holy, righteousness is completely void of the presence. This spiritual wickedness says, "I will be there when Israel is threatened," because it is by this same spirit that Israel is and has always been threatened. It goes further to say, "My view of Israel's security needs and future will not change," which explains why the US repeatedly calls for concessions that historically place Israel into greater security threats than the concession made before and thus limits the likelihood of any future for the Jewish sSate if and when such measures are put in place. And finally, "These statements are not merely our policy position, but our deeply held conviction." Please understand, these firmly held beliefs are so deeply rooted, that these powers and principalities of darkness shall not waver even as the flames of hell consume them for eternity.

USA: Destroyers of the Heritage and Leaders of the Rebellion

"The parties have indicated that they want the United States to continue its efforts."

The United States will not be a passive participant. We will push the parties to lay out their positions on the core issues without delay and with real specificity.

We enter this phase with clear expectations of both parties. Their seriousness about achieving an agreement will be measured by their engagement on these core issues.

So even as we engage both sides on the core issues with an eye toward eventually restarting direct negotiations, we will deepen our support of the Palestinians' state-building efforts. Because we recognize that a Palestinian state achieved through negotiations is inevitable.

Legitimacy of the Palestinians and Their Painful History?

The legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people will never be satisfied, and Israel will never enjoy secure and recognized borders until there is a two-state solution that ensures dignity, justice, and security for all.

The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and between Israel and Arab neighbors is a source of tension and an obstacle to prosperity and opportunity for all the people of the region. It denies the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people and it poses a threat to Israel's future security. It is at odds also with the interests of the United States.

We also look at our friends the Palestinians, and we remember the painful history of a people who have never had a state of their own, and we are renewed in our determination to help them finally realize their legitimate aspirations. The lack of peace and the occupation that began in 1967 continue to deprive the Palestinian people of dignity and self-determination. This is unacceptable, and, ultimately, it too is unsustainable.

And this begins with a sincere effort to see the world through the other side's eyes, to try to understand their perspective and positions. Palestinians must appreciate Israel's legitimate security concerns. And Israelis must accept the legitimate territorial aspirations of the Palestinian people. Ignoring the other side's needs is, in the end, self-defeating.

Israel is the Greatest Enemy to their Security?

The long-term population trends that result from the occupation are endangering the Zionist vision of a Jewish and democratic state in the historic homeland of the Jewish people. Israelis should not have to choose between preserving both elements of their dream. But that day is approaching.

At the same time, the ever-evolving technology of war, especially the expanding reach of the rockets amassed on Israel's borders means that it will be increasingly difficult to guarantee the security of Israeli families throughout the country without implementing peace agreements that answer these threats.

Radicalization of the region's young people and growing support for violent ideologies undermine the stability and prosperity of the Middle East. The United States looks at these trends. We reflect on our deep and unwavering support of the state of Israel and we conclude without a shadow of a doubt that ending this conflict once and for all and achieving a comprehensive regional peace is imperative for safeguarding Israelis' future.

Security is one area where the Palestinian Authority has made some of its most dramatic progress. I have seen it myself on recent trips to the West Bank, where well-trained and well-equipped Palestinian security forces stood watchful guard. As the Palestinian security forces continue to become more professional and capable, we look to Israel to facilitate their efforts. And we hope to see a significant curtailment of incursions by Israeli troops into Palestinian areas.

We continue to support the vision of the Arab Peace Initiative, a vision of a better future for all the people of the Middle East. This landmark proposal rests on the basic bargain that peace between Israel and her neighbors will bring recognition and normalization from all the Arab states. It is time to advance this vision with actions, as well as words. And Israel should seize the opportunity presented by this initiative while it is still available.

Wrestling with the LORD, Only Jacob Was Blessed

It is time to grapple with the core issues of the conflict on borders and security; settlements, water and refugees; and on Jerusalem itself. And starting with my meetings this week, that is exactly what we are doing. We will also deepen our strong commitment to supporting the state-building work of the Palestinian Authority and continue to urge the states of the region to develop the content of the Arab Peace Initiative and to work toward implementing its vision.

By the same token, to build trust and momentum, both sides need to give the other credit when they take a hard step. As we begin to grapple with the core issues, each side will have to make difficult decisions, and they deserve credit when they do so. And it should not just be the United States that acknowledges moves that are made; the parties themselves must do so as well.

America is serious about peace. We know the road forward will not be easy. But we are convinced that peace is both necessary and possible. So we will be persistent and press forward. We will push the parties to grapple with the core issues. We will work with them on the ground to continue laying the foundations for a future Palestinian state. And we will redouble our regional diplomacy. When one way is blocked, we will seek another. We will not lose hope and neither should the people of the region.

Peace is worth the struggle. It is worth the setbacks and the heartaches. A just and lasting peace will transform the region. Israelis will finally be able to live in security, at peace with their neighbors, and confident in their future. Palestinians will at last have the dignity and justice they deserve with a state of their own and the freedom to chart their own destiny. Across the Middle East, moderates and advocates of peace and coexistence will be strengthened, while old arguments will be drained of their venom and the rejectionists and extremists will be exposed and marginalized.

Financing Rebellion and the End of the Global Economy

It is of course true that much work remains to reverse a long history of corruption and mismanagement. But Palestinians are rightfully proud of the progress they have achieved, and the World Bank recently concluded that if the Palestinian Authority maintains its momentum in building institutions and delivering public services, it is - and I quote - "Well positioned for the establishment of a state at any point in the near future."

Abraham is the Father of Who and of What?

We are now in the holiday season, a time of reflection and fellowship. The National Christmas Tree is lighting up the sky. Jewish families have just completed the eight days of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, which reminds us that even when the future looks darkest, there is light and hope to be found through perseverance and faith. Muslims around the world also recently celebrated Eid al-Adha, the Festival of Sacrifice, which teaches the story of a man whose faith was tested when he was ordered by God to give up his beloved son. Whether we call him Abraham, Avraham, or Ibrahim, this man is the father of all the faiths of the Holy Land. He is a reminder that despite our differences, our histories are deeply entwined. And so too are our futures.

Today we should remember these stories. Sometimes we will be asked to walk difficult roads together, and sometimes these roads will be lined with naysayers, second-guessers, and rejectionists. But with faith in our common mission, we can and will come through the darkness together. That is the way - the only way toward peace, and that is what I hope we will keep in mind as we make this journey - this difficult journey toward a destination that awaits.

The Core Issues

First, on borders and security. The land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean is finite, and both sides must know exactly which parts belong to each. They must agree to a single line drawn on a map that divides Israel from Palestine and to an outcome that implements the two-state solution with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt. The Palestinian leaders must be able to show their people that the occupation will be over. Israeli leaders must be able to offer their people internationally recognized borders that protect Israel's security. And they must be able to demonstrate to their people that the compromises needed to make peace will not leave Israel vulnerable. Security arrangements must prevent any resurgence of terrorism and deal effectively with new and emerging threats. Families on both sides must feel confident in their security and be able to live free from fear.

Second, on refugees. This is a difficult and emotional issue, but there must be a just and permanent solution that meets the needs of both sides.

Third, on settlements. The fate of existing settlements is an issue that must be dealt with by the parties along with the other final status issues. But let me be clear: The position of the United States on settlements has not changed and will not change. Like every American administration for decades, we do not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement activity. We believe their continued expansion is corrosive not only to peace efforts and two-state solution, but to Israel's future itself.

And finally, on Jerusalem which is profoundly important for Jews, Muslims, and Christians everywhere. There will surely be no peace without an agreement on this, the most sensitive of all the issues. The religious interests of people of all faiths around the world must be respected and protected. We believe that through good faith negotiations, the parties should mutually agree on an outcome that realizes the aspirations for both parties, for Jerusalem, and safeguard its status for people around the world.

These core issues are woven together. Considering the larger strategic picture makes it easier to weigh the compromises that must be made on both sides and see the benefits to be gained. We are not moving forward in a vacuum. From day one, the Obama Administration has recognized the importance of making progress on two simultaneous and mutually reinforcing tracks - negotiations between the parties and institution-building that helps the Palestinians as they prepare to govern their own state. Improvements on the ground give confidence to negotiators and help create a climate for progress at the peace table.
