President Trump announced his proposed peace plan at the White House alongside Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House January 28, 2020, a plan that includes Israel losing more land according to the map within this article.
In a Jerusalem Post report (titled ‘Evangelicals see Trump plan as proof ‘Israel kissed by God’ – analysis’ (Jan 27, 2020), founder of Friends of Zion Museum and a member of the Trump Faith Initiative, Dr. Mike Evans, welcomed this peace plan announcement. In this report, reference was made to wide evangelical support. But not all have been that welcoming of this plan, especially in the Muslim world.
According to another Jerusalem Post report titled ‘Fatah on Deal of the Century: Palestine must be defended ‘with blood,’ (Feb 5, 2020) the following quote appears: “Fatah has told Palestinians to reject Trump’s peace plan, claiming that the whole of Israel is part of the Quran which must be defended with their lives.”
It is important to note that President Trump, unlike any other U.S. President, has followed through on displaying more support for Israel. Take for instance, moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem May 15, 2018 and declaring Jerusalem the eternal capital of Israel or honoring Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights March 25, 2019 that I have been an eye witness to.
In a show of support for Israel and fighting Anti-Semitism, President Trump has opposed the Anti-Semitic efforts of the U.N. agency UNRWA, the Boycott/Sanctions/ Divestment (BDS) and U.S. universities and colleges, as well as the desecration of Jewish cemeteries, key issues of which I report on at the White House. Fighting Anti-Semitism President Trump’s Principal Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley joins me Friday, February 14, 2020 at the White House to give an update on fighting Anti-Semitism.

With all the evangelical support for President Trump and his proposed peace plan, it is important to note a key Bible verse that warns of GOD’s judgment “I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; And they have divided up My land.” (Joel 3:2 New American Standard Bible).
This warning was also echoed by the Sanhedrin in my meeting with them January 29, 2020. History of the Palestinian issue According to a Jerusalem Post report titled ‘Who Invented “Palestine?” HADRIAN!,’ the Roman Emperor Hadrian (117 to 138 A.D.) renamed the current land of Israel ‘Palestine’ from its original name of Judea.
Also, according to Middle East historian William Federer, there is no Palestinian race of people and he describes these people as Arabs (YouTube, February 28, 2020). If that is true, justification for a Palestinian state and the associated proposed peace plan could be challenged. These are serious issues to wrestle with. For many Orthodox Jews and Evangelical Christians, only The Messiah can bring peace. Read a description of The Messiah in Isaiah Chapters 9 and 53 of The Holy Bible.
For Evangelical Christians, only JESUS (YESHUA) can meet the qualifications for Messiah as described in Isaiah Chapters 9 and 53.
