Wall placed between Jewish, Arab Jerusalem neighborhoods

Monday, October 19, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - Jerusalem police began on Sunday to place portable concrete slabs between the predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv in the capital’s southeast and the Arab neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, in a bid to stem a series of terrorist and Molotov cocktail attacks carried out in the area over the past weeks.

The move followed the placing of concrete blocks in roads leading out of many Arab East Jerusalem neighborhoods, in a move criticized by some as de facto splitting the unified city.

The concrete wall, 300 meters long and about five meters high, was intended “to prevent the throwing of firebombs at the houses on Meir Nakar Street [in Armon Hanatziv] and to prevent the loss of life. It means nothing more,” a police spokeswoman said. [ Source ]

  1. For those anticipating the "Gog-Magog" war of Ezekiel 38-39 to come to pass soon, one of the prerequisites of the war is that Israel is living in perfect peace without "walls or gates!" This certainly doesn't line up with Scripture at this time.

  2. The US has stepped back from its leadership position. The stage is being set for the antichrist to rise to power. I don't know where in the world the gospel has not been preached. Things have been changing very quickly. The church could be raptured any time and the antichrist could rise to power very quickly.
