“Because They Have Divided Up My Land...” (Joel 3:2)
h) The Cities for the Levites: Numbers 35:2-8; Joshua 21:8-43
i) The Cities of Refuge: Numbers 35:9-34; Joshua 20:1-9
Kadesh in Galilee - in the hill country of Naphtali (where also Safed is located), adjoining the lush Huleh Valley, over against the foothills of the Golan Heights.
Golan and Ramoth are on the Golan Heights, which Israel is pressured to cede to Syria. All the Arab states and the USA keep insisting that in the spirit of Land for Peace Israel should let go of the Golan Heights. Yet even American generals acknowledge, that the Golan is an absolutely indispensable strategic asset, vital for the defense and survival of Israel. Giving up the Golan, in addition to Judea and Samaria, amounts to national suicide. A thus weakened Israel faces genocide to which the world will - once again - stand by in silence.
Shechem - to the world now only known as “Nablus” - is in Samaria and has been delivered to the PA. Opposite Shechem was Shiloh, the place G-d chose first to pitch the Tabernacle. In Shechem Joshua made a covenant with the people of Israel, where he also made statutes and ordinances for them. In Shechem are Joseph's bones buried which the children of Israel carried with them when they came out of Egypt7. G-d promised in Psalm 60:6 and 108:7 that "with exultation He will divide up Shechem [among His people]..."
Hebron in Judea was agreed to give to the PA prior to the elections in June 1996. We hoped that the new government would reverse this agreement8, and finally look to the Holy One of Israel for help rather than to men; that Netanyahu would put his trust in G-d's promises and power, and refuse to further bow to the demands of "Esau" and "Ishmael".
Bezer is in today's Jordan.
j) The Land of Israel may never be sold in perpetuity: Lev. 25:23-24, 25-28 (29-34);
It may not be sold as such among the Israelites themselves, and certainly never to aliens, because the land is G-d's own Land.
The Land of Israel is G-d's
OWN Land: Joel
3:2; Ps 83:1-8; Zech. 2:12;
Neither the USA nor any UN nations have the right to negotiate away G-d's own land. The only land over which they have the right to give it away is their own land. But to the Land of Israel they have absolutely NO RIGHT!
The Land of Israel is the Jews'
OWN Land: Ezekiel 36:24; 37:14, 21; 39:28;
It is the land promised by G-d as an inheritance to the Jewish people, the children of Israel. It does NOT belong to the Philistines, i.e. the Palestinians, who never lived in Shechem, Bethlehem or Jerusalem nor had any sovereignty there.
G-d is jealous for His Land and City: Zech. 1:14-17, 21; 8:2-8;

Under the terms of the Oslo Accords, the leadership of the Palestinian Authority (PA) is obligated to refrain from incitement to violence against Israel. In his exchange of letters with Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin on September 9, 1993, Yasser Arafat wrote “The PLO renounces the use of terrorism and other acts of violence and will assume responsibility over all PLO elements and personnel in order to assure their compliance, prevent violations and discipline violators.”
The Interim Agreement (Oslo II) of September 28, 1995 (Article XXII) states that Israel and the PA “shall seek to foster mutual understanding and tolerance and shall accordingly abstain from incitement, including hostile propaganda, against each other.” The Gaza-Jericho Agreement of May 1994 contained a similar provision (Article XII).
Thus, statements made by PA officials which incite to violence against Israel are a violation of the accords. The following is a small selection of numerous statements by PA officials, and particularly Yasser Arafat, in the three years since the beginning of the Oslo process. I list in reverse order:
Arafat in an October 21 speech at the Dehaishe refugee camp: “We know only one word: jihad, jihad, jihad! When we stopped the intifada, we did not stop the jihad for the establishment of a Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem. And we are now entering the phase of the GREAT JIHAD9prior to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem... We are in a conflict with the Zionist movement and the Balfour Declaration and all imperialist activities.” (Oct. 23, 1996)
Arafat to a delegation of Hebron Arab notables urging the use of violence: “Have you run out of stones in Hebron? Prepare the stones.” (Oct. 21, 1996)
On August 6, 1996, Arafat called Israel a “demon” and urged Arabs to use “all means” at their disposal to fight Israel (The New York Times, Aug. 7, 1996)
Arafat threatening Israel with violence: “If Israel rejects our demands there will be a reaction and we have a 30,000 man armed force.” (Israel Radio, June 7, 1996)
Faisal Husseini in an interview: “There will be an intifada not just in Jerusalem, but in all the occupied territories and in all the Middle East.” (Israel Radio, May 21; Ha’aretz, May 22, 1995)
PA Justice Minister Freih Abu Middain in a speech read in Arafat’s name at Gaza’s Shawa Cultural Center: “I say once more that Israel shall remain the principal enemy of the Palestinian people, not only now but also in the future.” (Voice of Palestine, May 12, 1995). One month previously at Gaza’s Al-Azhar University, Abu Middein said, “We must remember that the main enemy of the Palestinian people, now and forever,10 is Israel. This is a truth that must never leave our minds.” (An-Nahar, April 11, 1995; Jerusalem Post, April 17, 1995)
Arafat, at a rally in Gaza, compared the Oslo Accords with the temporary truce between Muhammad and the Quraish tribe, which was later broken, and he said: “We signed that agreement in Oslo, and if any of you has one objection to it, I have one hundred objections.” (Voice of Palestine, April 16, 1995)
Arafat in a speech on the 30th anniversary of Fatah’s founding: “We are going to continue the Palestinian revolution until the last martyr to create a Palestinian state.” (AFP, Jan. 1, 1995) He further stated, “We are all seekers of martyrdom... I say to the martyrs who died, to the martyrs who are still alive, we hold to the oath,11 we hold to the commitment to continue the revolution...” (Palestinian TV -- equipped from Christian donations over TBN - Jan. 1, 1995).
The list of such and similar statements is endless. They sufficiently show that the aim of the Palestinians is NOT peace with Israel, not even “land for peace”, but the destruction of the Jewish state and the establishment of a Palestinian state on its ruins. Of this true aim all European governments are aware, as well as the former and present American administrations. Barely half a century after the Nazi Holocaust the world stands again poised to count Messiah’s brethren according to the flesh as sheep for the slaughter. How great is Satan’s hatred of them.
