Jewish Home & religious Zionist party: “There’s no place in God’s country for another state”

So says Habayit Hayehudi leader, Naftali Bennett,

In his first address to the Knesset, Habayit Hayehudi leader Naftali Bennett on Tuesday rejected any possibility of an agreement that would lead to the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel. “There’s no place in our small and stunning piece of God’s country for another state,” he said. “It won’t happen. But friends, before any debate about territory, it must be said: The Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel. Now let’s argue.”

See, ‘No place in Israel for Palestine,’ says Naftali Bennett in maiden Knesset speech

Being ignorant to who Naftali Bennett is, I found an interesting recent piece written about him at Arutz Sheva, Naftali Bennett is Our Prince Charming

MK Uri Orbach of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party had high praise for party head Naftali Bennett in his first speech in the 19th Knesset, comparing him to a fairy-tale prince. Orbach recalled his first speech in Knesset four years ago, when he entered as one of three MKs in the Jewish Home party:

“I compared religious Zionism to Queen Esther – aware of the greatness of her mission, but also a bit afraid of it,” he said. “I also said that maybe religious Zionism is like Sleeping Beauty.”

“We wanted to wake up our Sleeping Beauty, religious Zionism. But I didn’t continue the story, I didn’t recall the prince who needs to give her a kiss….”

“I’m happy we found Naftali Bennett,” Orbach declared. “He is the prince who woke up the sleeping beauty, who, along with his good friends, gave the kiss of life that woke us up politically, woke up this great beauty that will benefit the entire country.” “I want to wish you, Naftali, our friend, that you keep waking up the beauty. She is awake, but now she needs to do something with her beauty, with her abilities,” he added.

“Good luck, Naftali, and blessings on the beginning of your work as the leader of religious-Zionist politics in the state of Israel,” he concluded.

As a side note he is the son of San Francisco Bay Area residents who moved to Israel after the 1967 war, independently wealthy, ($145 million, to be exact) after selling his New York built Internet company.

And I’m willing to wager Christian Zionists in this country are a HUGE fan. (See story and video: Israeli-American on Bennett’s list for Knesset imagines blowing up Muslim holy site)  

But that’s ok…after all he’s a “Prince”.

  1. If this were any ordinary situation, I would say that all of the promoters of Israel are false prophets and the whole thing is going to end badly, thus discrediting all of them. But I really don’t believe this is any ordinary situation. Rather I really believe that this is part of the end time strategy of all of the demonic powers, and, that being the case, it will APPEAR to be coming to fulfillment with Israel appearing to be spared by divine power to the very end, and, in all likelihood, with the Antichrist himself being enthroned there and appearing to be all but the reincarnation of Jesus Himself. So I see no real hope that this situation is EVER going to improve. Instead, it is going to be with us to the end of time which, who knows, could extend out for centuries or could come to a climax in the blink of an eye. During this remaining time, we can ONLY keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and live one day at a time without being drawn into this diabolical soap opera. There are of course, many believers in Israel itself and they would be wise to follow this same path. And there are many non-Christian Jews and Muslims who are otherwise fine people with the best of intentions doing their best to live a righteous life as they understand righteousness. We can only pray that they find their true Savior as the drama unfolds. But in the end, there IS ONLY ONE mediator between man and God and we all know who that is. Welcome to the end times.

    At the same time of course, we have a parallel situation playing out here in the USA with these same people claiming the USA to be some sort of parallel Christian Israel divinely chosen to shepherd the Jewish Israel. I believe this situation to be much more ordinary and doomed to perpetual frustration as the prophetic pronouncements fail one after the other. Israel does not need the United States, but Israel WILL USE the United States as much as possible. But I really don’t see the dreams of the Christian Zionists coming to pass in terms of achieving a theocracy in the USA. Rather, I see the USA eventually simply falling into line with all the other nations of the earth behind the powers of the Antichrist. It will be a much different senario from what Christian Zionists dream of. They will not end up being the spiritual heroes as they envision themselves, but rather just the victims like all the rest of humanity, IF they fail to wake up and cling to Jesus.

    • Thank you George I believe your biblically correct and spiritually led assessment is in keeping with the truth. Sadly, the climax could be in the blink of an eye which should encourage our diligence to follow the LORD and our testimony for Jesus Christ more urgent.

  2. What else would one expect when the scriptures they read identify who the “enemy” is and everyone is not a part of them and their rich heritage whose practice of faith and morals is not derived from those scriptures and that heritage? That’s certainly shortsighted nevertheless they are just espousing what that body of scriptures teach!

    It makes perfectly good sense to me. And I keep reminding people the one sure way these Jews will pay attention to Christ, the Messiah, who’s bloodline is from Abraham is if and when people from all those specifically named nations in Acts 2 begin rising up and speak for peace in present day Israel in their native tongue and land even in the face of the harsh persecution that undoubtedly will come upon them seeing if I’m not mistaken all those specific nations named are under strong Islamic rule and influences. Barring that happening it most likely will happen just the way Jesus said it would but on a far grander scale than that small land mass and much contested country, Israel?

    And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14 ESV)

    For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. (Matthew 24:21, 22 ESV)

  3. The public positions of political officials like Naftali Bennett can only cause problems in the region….like this.

    Suspected Jewish settlers damaged 30 graves and scrawled anti-Arab graffiti on the headstones in an ancient Muslim cemetery in west Jerusalem, Israeli police and witnesses said on Thursday.

    “The words ‘price tag’ and Stars of David were scrawled on around a dozen tombs in the Muslim cemetery in Mamilla in central Jerusalem,” a police spokeswoman told AFP, saying an inquiry had been opened.

    An AFP correspondent at the scene said the vandals had also written “Mohammad is dead” and “Maale Rehavam” on the tombs some of which date back to the 12th century.

    Maale Rehavam is an illegal outpost in the southern West Bank where Israeli police removed six caravans a day earlier.

    The move sparked angry protests by settlers and their supporters in and around Jerusalem.
