– Two State Solution
Today many believe that the only solution to the conflict between Jews and Arabs in Israel is dividing the country into “two-states.” But actually that was done in 1922 when the British Mandate divided the territory into two states.
In September 1922, the Mandate divided the territory into Palestine, (west of the Jordan) for the Jews and Transjordan, (east of the Jordan River) for the Arabs.
This division effectively removed about 78% of the original territory of the area which was to be established as a national home for the Jewish people. Israel accepted the division, but the Arabs did not.
Meanwhile, there was a mass movement of people as a result. Jews were exiled from Arab countries throughout the Middle East. Many Arabs living in Palestine moved to Jordan, but also many remained in Palestine, refusing to recognize the reality of the new Jewish state.
After Israel’s War of Independence, ISRAEL took back her Biblical name and was formerly recognized by the UN.
PRAISE GOD FOR HIS PROMISE:
For thus says the Lord:
“Sing with gladness for Jacob,
And shout among the chief of the nations;
Proclaim, give praise, and say,
‘O Lord, save Your people,
The remnant of Israel!’
Behold, I will bring them from the north country,
And gather them from the ends of the earth.
