The Middle East is perhaps the most economic sensitive place in the world. A large percent of oil is produced and transported through the Middle East. Oil is the life blood of the global economy.
In a masterful AIPAC speech, Netanyahu did what no one else could have done. He delivered a very powerful message, calmly and clearly explaining why Israel would never give up the right to its capital city.
He delivered this speech after meeting with the Obama administration who applied intense pressure on Netanyahu’s government to make major concessions to give up part of Jerusalem even before direct peace talks begin.
Then Netanyahu sent the world a sobering message that if the world does not move quickly and decisively to stop Iran from getting a Nuclear weapon, Israel will. He didn’t threaten and he didn’t hesitate, just stated the facts.
The reason I bring this up is because I wrote about this last year in an article series titled; “Why America May Never Recover From the Recession”

Zechariah 12:1-3 says, “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”
This is clearly happening today, with the Obama administration trying the force Israel to divide Jerusalem and create a two state system within the land of Israel, while the world is gathering against it.
Then Ezekiel 37:21-23 says, “'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. 22 I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms. “
The Sovereign Lord said he would never again allow the nation – which includes the land - to be divided. How much clearly could this be happening today?
Here is the entire speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu;
