04 peace in israel

Abdullah has put forth a peace plan that is called the 'two basket' approach. In it he pledges to integrate Israel into the Arab economic community, and he pledges to deliver the Arab World's guarantee of Israel's security.

As of November 2001 he has received the backing of the United States, the European Union, the United Nations, Russia, Egypt and Jordan to accomplish this peace. [#2]

Israeli Temple on Temple Mount
These actions of the peacemaker bring peace and security to Israel and provide an altar of sacrifice for the Jews on Temple Mount in Jerusalem. These are the signs that the Jewish clerics are awaiting to determine the identity of their Messiah.

Allowing the Jews to share Temple Mount and resume sacrifice in their rebuilt temple has been an insurmountable task in the past. The Muslims currently control Temple Mount. The Jews are not allowed a presence up there. However, Abdullah, the Hashemite King of Jordan, has the authority over the Islamic decisions of Temple Mount. He can allow the sharing of Temple Mount to take place, and prophecy says that it will be shared. [#3]

The king is the 43rd direct descendant of the prophet Muhammad, the founder of the Islamic faith [#4]. This makes Abdullah the true voice of Islam on the planet and able to make these decisions [#5], [#6]. The Islamic clerics know this and do not come against him as they do infidels of the faith when they issue a 'fatwa' or death sentence on them. The King is the bloodline representative of Muhammad on earth, true religious royalty, and therefore immune to their death sentences.

King Says New Peace Deal Would Guarantee Israel's Security, Integration, In Return For Palestinian State

By Michael Binyon

The Arab world must be prepared to offer a collective guarantee of Israel's security and integration into the Middle East in return for the setting up of a Palestinian state, His Majesty King Abdullah told The Times on Friday.

Under a deal now being discussed by the main international parties, this would offer Israel for the first time a guarantee of its own existence and security by all countries from the Gulf to Morocco.

According to the plan, "the Arab countries will make a statement guaranteeing the security of Israel," the King said. This was part of what he called the "two-basket approach" agreed by the "team" of the main parties, including the United States, Russia, the European Union, the United Nations, Egypt and Jordan. It would mark an unprecedented public acceptance by all Arab states not only of Israel's existence but of its full integration within the Middle East.

King Abdullah is understood to have canvassed the idea in the Gulf States, Saudi Arabia and several North African states. But the biggest barrier remains Syria, and those countries such as Iraq and Libya that have taken a consistently militant approach.

The King's remarks, while still exploratory, are the clearest statement yet of how the moderate Arab world sees the next steps in setting up a Palestinian state and ending the Middle East conflict.

"To this day we don't know what the endgame is," he said on the last day of his state visit to Britain with Her Majesty Queen Rania. No one yet knew what would follow the Mitchell proposals, aimed at an immediate end to violence. But it was a "given" that Israel would not disappear. It was not a given yet that a Palestinian state would appear.

The community of nations was therefore working on the establishment of a Palestinian state, set up in accordance with the United Nations Resolutions 242 and 338. In return, Israel would have its security underpinned not simply by the Palestinians but by the wider Arab world. "Responsibility has to be taken on both sides of the equation," he said.

The King was speaking in an interview immediately after his address to both Houses of Parliament. He said this long-term strategy would underpin a new initiative to be launched soon by the Bush Administration.

"He is ready to move. But, the way he describes it, he plays the presidential card, so you can't play that card if there's a chance of failure. What happens if that fails? You are going to have to wait for years . . . It must be 99 per cent clear, and I agree with him."

The King said Prime Minister Tony Blair agreed with him on all details of this. "I was joking with the Prime Minister that our tÍte-_-tÍtes are getting shorter and shorter because we agree on everything."

On Iraq, he said that there were some voices in America wanting to broaden the war and attack Baghdad. "The president and the State Department and others are very clear on the dangers of bringing Iraq into the equation at this stage.
"There are people in the administration and government that would like to use this as an excuse, but the voices of moderation at this stage are the ones that are stronger."

He repeated his insistence to MPs that the war against terrorism was in no way a war between the West and Islam. But there needed to be balanced reporting, especially by the Arab media. It was not balanced to air the views of Osama Ben Laden without any questioning, whereas politicians such as Blair were cross-examined.

The King said that his state visit with Queen Rania had been extremely successful. "We were here to reinforce the traditional ties between the UK and Jordan. That clearly was not difficult to do, given the tremendous hospitality of the queen and the government.


Footnote 3 [back to top]
Revelation 11: 1& 2
11:1 Then I was given a measuring stick, and I was told, "Go and measure the Temple of God and the altar, and count the number of worshipers.

11:2 But do not measure the outer courtyard, for it has been turned over to the nations. They will trample the holy city for 42 months.

The reason that the 'outer court' is not measured is because it is in Gentile [Muslim] hands presently and they will maintain their presence on it. But the Temple and the altar will be rebuilt by the Jews for their purposes. Thus the Jews and the Muslims will share the Temple Mount area. And Abdullah has the authority to allow this to happen.

His Majesty King Abdullah II is the 43rd generation direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammad. King Abdullah II assumed his constitutional powers as Monarch of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on February 7th, 1999, the day his father, the late King Hussein, passed away.

King Abdullah II Proclaims Himself 'The True Voice of Islam'

Washington - His father acknowledged being on the CIA payroll for decades. His namesake great grandfather was brought to today's Kingdom for the first time by the British who provided him with Army and allowance to reward the Hashemites for having served the British Empire so well.
His mother was in fact a British citizen and Christian. His education was by the Jesuits at Georgetown following in the footsteps of Bill Clinton. His military career was compliments of both the UK and US. His countries most important historical contribution has been unparalleled collusion with the Jewish State of Israel.

He himself was brought to the throne in a daring CIA plot launched from his dying father's bedside in Rochester, Minnesota; his father's American wife whispering in his ear and arranging that her son be next in line to take the throne -- Washington is still laughing and toasting itself for this one!
And he still has to be coached in Arabic, as his preferred language is actually English.

And now, in the pages of the Empire's hometown newspaper The Washington Post today, his many Westernized ghost-writers, have told him he needs to proclaim himself 'The True Voice of Islam' hoping against hope that his Kingdom will remain under American protection after the upcoming great war in which it is really the Israelis who will decide whether Jordan becomes 'The Palestinian State'

The True Voice of Islam

By King Abdullah II of Jordan

Saturday, December 7, 2002 - Washington Post Page A25

AMMAN -- This week marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims throughout the world take time to reflect upon the values of our faith: compassion, goodwill and respect for others. These are core ideals in Islam, the faith that my family, the Hashemites, descendants of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon Him, has served for 40 generations. Our religion calls us to live and work for justice and to promote tolerance. Daily, we share God's blessing: Salaam Aleikum -- "Peace be upon you."

This is the true voice of Islam, but it is not the voice that Americans always hear. Instead, they hear the hatred spewed by groups mistakenly called Islamic fundamentalists. In fact, there is nothing fundamentally Islamic about these extremists. They are religious totalitarians, in a long line of extremists of various faiths who seek power by intimidation, violence and thuggery.

Extremists violently reject the original moderation and openness of Islam -- qualities that made the Muslim world the historical home of diversity and learning. Nor does their violence constitute "jihad," or holy war. The Prophet Muhammad tells us that the "greater" holy war is not against others at all but against one's own failings -- the "war against the ego." Moreover, in a famous speech, the Prophet's follower and first successor, Abu Bakr, commanded Muslim soldiers: "Do not betray, do not deceive, do not bludgeon and maim, do not kill a child, nor a woman, nor an old man . . . do not burn, do not cut down a fruit tree. . . . If you come across communities who have consecrated themselves to the [Christian church], leave them."

These words are part of the most basic religious education that Arab and Muslim schoolchildren receive. I know, because I was one of them. So when today's terrorists target innocents, they provide direct evidence of their real agenda: power politics, not religion. In fact, long before so-called Islamic terrorists began attacking the West, they were targeting fellow Muslims. The goal was to silence opposition and obliterate the Islam of peace and dialogue. I carry the name of my great-grandfather, Abdullah I, who was assassinated by an extremist. In the same attack, my father, then age 15, was hit by a bullet. He survived, and as King Hussein became a great peacemaker. He always believed a real leader stands up against the forces of destruction.

Among the world's 1.2 billion Muslims, extremists are, of course, a tiny minority. For decades, many Muslims thought that because they had nothing to do with this criminal fringe, they could ignore it. Sept. 11, 2001, changed that kind of thinking. The idea that anyone would exploit our religion to sanction the killing of innocents outraged Muslims everywhere. To my knowledge, every Muslim country, every center of traditional Islamic scholarship and every major Islamic organization in the United States condemned the Sept. 11 attacks absolutely. They did so, not out of diplomatic nicety, not out of fear of the United States, but because our faith demands it.

Yet we must do even more to make sure the real voice of Islam is heard. Today Muslims must speak out boldly in defense of a dynamic, moderate Islam -- an Islam that upholds the sanctity of human life, reaches out to the oppressed, respects men and women alike, and insists on the fellowship of all humankind. This is the true Islam of the Prophet, and the Islam that terrorists seek to destroy.

But this is not a challenge for Muslims alone. All religions have suffered from the violence and extremism of a few. Even as we begin the 21st century -- an era of global exchange and exploding knowledge -- God's name is being exploited to promote rifts and justify conflict. Differences between faiths become differences between people, and all humanity suffers.

Together, we share a responsibility to prevent the abuse of religion by those who would divide us. We have a special duty to combat injustice, which is so often exploited by extremists. Nowhere is our help needed more than in the Holy Land, where Palestinians and Israelis alike are crying out for peace, stability and security. Together we must urge their leaders to hear the voices of reason and peace, end oppression and occupation, stop the violence and create a future of hope.

My father and great-grandfather believed that a peaceful, political solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict would be essential to defeating extremism and building a world of mutual acceptance and peace. Events show that they were right. What is needed now is clear to all sides: a fully independent Palestinian state and an Israel that is integrated, in peace and security, into its Arab neighborhood. This is why Jordan has strongly supported the Arab peace initiative that came out of Beirut last March, which commits all Arab states to a peace agreement with Israel and the establishment of a Palestinian state and includes collective security guarantees and an agreed solution to the refugee problem. Jordan is also working with the United States, Russia, Europe and the United Nations to craft a road map and timetable for a permanent, sustainable end to the conflict.

It is a terrible truth that for many people, the Holy Land has come to symbolize extremism and injustice, rather than peace on Earth. But we, Earth's citizens and leaders, have a chance to defy hatred and defeat terror. In doing so, we can help this region, so important to all our faiths, lead the way to a better future for all the world. Salaam Aleikum.
