Biden Pushes for a Palestinian Consulate
Biden wants to put a consulate for Palestinians in Jerusalem. In addition to being illegal, this could severely hurt Israel’s stability. Join intercessors who are fasting and praying about Biden’s trip. Click HERE to read more.
Analysis. From New York Post. The Biden administration wants to open a Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem. It’s a big mistake — for numerous reasons.
Connect with Others in your State in Prayer.
First, it’s illogical: A consulate is nothing more than a satellite office to an embassy. There’s already a US embassy in Jerusalem…
Second, it’s a waste of taxpayer money because the US embassy already provides consular services on a non-discriminatory basis to Palestinians and Israelis alike.
Third, fourth and fifth — legally speaking — a Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem would violate American, Israeli and international law.
For starters, America’s Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 provides that “Jerusalem should remain an undivided city” and, “the capital of the State of Israel.” That Act was passed by overwhelming bipartisan consensus, with then-Sen. Joe Biden as the first co-sponsor of the bill.
Opening the consulate would also be illegal under the 2018 Taylor Force Act, another law passed by a massive bipartisan congressional consensus, which put a hold on any assistance that directly benefits the Palestinian Authority until it stops paying terrorists to kill American and Israeli citizens….
Meanwhile, Articles 4, 7 and 8 of the 1963 Vienna Convention of Consular Relations require the receiving state to give consent and approval before a foreign consulate may be established. Simply put, this is not the United States’ call to make.
And Israel can’t legally approve: As Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh recently explained, opening a Jerusalem consulate is important to him precisely because it would send the message that Jerusalem is not a unified city. Yet Israel’s Basic Law stipulates that “Jerusalem, complete and united, is the capital of Israel….”
Sixth, such a move could destabilize Israel’s shaky governing coalition, a scenario the Biden administration is said to be wary of….
Seventh, opening a consulate could represent a return to the tried and failed paradigm of rewarding Palestinian intransigence….
If the Biden administration wants to symbolically affirm its willingness to engage with the Palestinians, it can do so in a way that is not illegal, immoral or politically fraught….

A fake president and a fake administration cannot open a Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem. But the Lord laughs at the wicked he sees that his day is coming. Psalms 37:13
It seems that Joe Biden is up to his old tricks again, making the middle east more volatile, making the City of Jerusalem a multi-national city that speaks legitimately for no one of any worth.
Have him (JB) wait outside.
Conservatives need to stop riding Israel’s dick. The jews have been destroying the world for centuries and are still working to dismantle our very way of life (Great Reset, One world government and currency). The Jews aren’t even Gods chosen people anymore, so the evangelical West’s obsession with them is strange and misplaced. To hell with Israel, we’d be well off without them.
Chris, you obviously do not understand what it means to be God’s “”chosen ones.” As much as your reasons for disliking Israel are inaccurate you still have free will to have them. Read the Bible my friend, God uses Israel to reveal His truth and Glory forever actually. Hey, ask yourself how little bity Israel could be so blessed and have such an impact on the world if God wasn’t involved. They should have been wiped out during the 7 day war but thats just one of the many examples of them being victorious due to God’s hand. My ultimate prayer for Israel is that they come to know Christ as He is ineed the Messiah that they are still waiting for. In Christ’s Holy name, Amen
OH LORD, PLEASE, OVERTURN THE PLAN OF THE BIDEN ADMIN. TO OPEN A PALESTINIAN CONSULATE IN JERUSALEM. IT SHALL NOT STAND, NEITHER SHALL IT COME TO PASS (ISAIAH 7:7) IN JESUS HOLY NAME, AMEN. PLEASE LORD, LET ONLY YOUR PERFECT WILL BE DONE IN JERUSALEM AND IN THE LIVES AND DESTINIES OF YOUR ELECTED PEOPLE AND NATION.
Father God we come boldly to Your throne of grace. We lift up our nation and it’s leaders asking they recieve for wisdom, discernment, for they have no Biblical understanding… Lord we lift up Your Chosen people Israel to Your throne of grace for her protection, hope and help as they are recrntly attacked and murdered men, women and children in various ways shot, stabbed, stoned, hit by cars! people his with missles and rockets! Just Because they are Jewish and the people who attack them are ” Palestinians “. who celebrate each death and give their kids candy in celebration teaching their children the horrible long tradition of anti- semitism and spiritual warfare against them. The media, the President says literally nothing about this!?! If we Christians did not have Christian news we too would be in the dark about what is happening
there! We Christians who know Your Bible and Holy, Character LORD and Your jealous never ending love for Your People . The Jewish Roots of Christianity run deep. But You love them so do we Father God!! LORD GOD We know our President does Not know his Bible at all!! We know he has no clue this request for a “Palestinian ” consolate is bizarre As There IS No State of Palestine! and it gives credibility to violent people. LORD have Mercy to USA who is under this foolish man’s leadership.for I know You Bless those (who genuinly love, support and pray for ) who Bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel . You mean what You say and will never forget Israel! Every Time leader speaks/ sends force against Israel something terrible happens! in USA we got hurricane Katrina the day after George Bush ordered US Troops to displace and kick Jews out of their own homes in Gaza!! and 9/11 after his secret deal peace plan to split Israel. When Obama dissed Netanyahu when he came to White House, the next day we got the Oil Spill! so this is no joke and any calamety that befalls us is due to blatant disrespect of Israel and foolish support of her enemies! Lord help us!! Lord protect Israel and Open the blinded eyes, minds and hearts to Your Holy word and those who falsely teach Hericy of ” Replacement Theology” False teaching the church Replaced Israel…that is bad theology, bad doctrine and sadly many churches believe it! You are Holy, Merciful and Love Every Single Person LORD! You have opened bbn lind eyes before do what You are famous for and move mightily make a way where there seems to be no way and push back the evil powers and principalities behind this in Jesus Name Amen
There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof leads to destruction. https://theprayersentry.com/2022/07/13/on-the-right-path/
The blessing of the Lord be upon you Israel
Dear Lord we pray your hand in this. May this evil plan be confused and rejected, in Jesus name
What ever Buyden does is illegal because he is an illegitimate president that was never anointed by the Holy Father! He gained his false seat by his and the lies of Satan, but it will all be torn down and exposed by the only God, very soon!
How about God said dont divide my land? Expect a catastrophe.
I guess we should expect that anyone wanting to establish a law legalizing killing babies would readily want to put a Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem. Satan must have a smile on his face
Brothers and sisters God says that we are to encourage one another much. God also told us to occupy the earth until Jesus returns .
We have an interloper in office who along with his evil cronies and others who are not even Americans that are trying to rip the very fabric of our nation apart. Families, Church’s and all things Godly that we as dear children of God hold dear are all in danger. God has us though and I know that we trust Him and that we are going to come out of this and so is Israel.
America and Israel are the two most important Biblical nations in the world. America has pretty much been the only friend that Israel has ever had. Right now again , our precious Jewish brothers and sisters and the awesome nation of Israel need out deepest prayers .
This administration does not have Israel’s best interest at heart and Israel does not need what this current administration is trying to do.
Let’s together seek God for the peace of Jerusalem and all of Israel and her people.
The Bible clearly states that God gave Israel to the Jews. It is a gift to them because of God’s great love for them and because we love them and Israel we know that God will hear our prayers for the protection of Israel and her people .
God warned us about those nations and people who go against His nation Israel.
Together as American Christians we are a mighty remnant force. God bless America and Israel and our people.
You are being one-sided. You do not mention Israel pushing Palestinians off the lands they have farmed for generations, or from their homes to build Israeli apartments. You do not mention the incarceration of adolescent children. Neither side is guiltless. I would pray instead for a just peace in this land, one that incorporates all its inhabitants.
Father God we come against this evil and unlawful leadership in America that pridefully stands in direct opposition to you and to your principles and intends only harm to Israel and Jerusalem which is the apple of your eye. We believe that we are here according to Esther 4:14 for such a time as this!! We come against what the enemy intends to do. Lord we speak life to America we speak life to Jerusalem the eternal and undivided capital of Israel and we bar/hinder and call of no effect the enemy’s attempt to gain access into the city of Jerusalem! We decree that all of his efforts will fall to the ground in total failure and frustration as we speak confusion and division into the enemies camp in the mighty name of Jesus!. Psalms 121:4 “Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Isaiah 62:1, “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.”
AMEN! We declare Israel Lives!!
This is again another example of everything Biden does is wrong, anti-American, illegal, immoral, harmful not helpful, there is no upside to this, as you explained, illegal action that he wants to take in putting a Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem. It would divide the city, division is of the devil. There is no reason for this action except to cause harm, division and more chaos in the region. Praying his evil plan will be thwarted and not allowed to come to pass – so that many will be protected from the fallout that would occur if this took place. Lord, change hearts and minds to do what is right and please protect us all from their destructive plans – may they not come to fruition. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com
Better still, pray for the exposure of the Great Puppet Master, and for Biden’s unceremonious removal.
A-MEN, Derek! We understand that the pieces are moving into place and we are in the last days. the anit-christ will soon rise, but while we are on this earth, may our prayers hold back the evil.
Praying in agreement in Jesus’ Mighty Name; amen!
The puppet masters have been revealed. They are the Bilderberg Group and Susan Rice.
Biden has to go before America as we know it is gone! Biden is a disgrace to America and should be removed along with Kamala and Piglosy.
Biden has no idea what he is really doing but just does whatever comes to mind without any thought of consequences.
Biden is the worst of the worst when it comes to presidents. Do something please before it is too late.
Father we thank You that You are in control and that Biden and his puppet masters are not. We declare that there will be no separate consulate for the Palestinians in Jerusalem. We pray that the Jerusalem Embassy which already includes a consulate for the Palestinians would receive divine wisdom from You to mediate Your will there for the all the Jerusalem inhabitants. We pray for Your peace that comes through Jesus to be upon Jerusalem. We decree repentance and revival in the knowledge of Jesus. Bring stability through righteous leadership that is submitted to You.
We pray for the exposure and the expulsion of Biden administration and the puppet masters pulling his strings. We decree their demise and self destruction. We pray, declare and decree these things in Jesus’ name.
Lord I agree and also ask Your saving grace wash over Mr Biden all those who are trying to influence him to do harm to America and Israel with this bad idea and help open their hearts to receive Your Spirit, to bow to and declare that You alone are the Most High God, the true Merciful One, Jehovah Jesus. Maranatha Lord!
Yes I absolutely agree with this prayer of declaration in Jesus MightyName!’ Amen and amen!!!
Father we pray that this compromise with the devil would never occur!! The Old Testament is FULL of woes that plagued th nation of Israel for thousands of years when they did not follow your plan of exclusion with pagan peoples.
Only and always in th beloved name of Jesus we pray and stand.. Amen
Father God we thank you for Isreal and the precious Jewish people.
We ask you Father in Jesus Holy name that you would intervene in this mission of the Biden administration and go before them to protect Isreal and her Government. Like America we know that there are those in the Israeli government who do not have Israel’s best interest at heart and we pray that you would expose any corruption in their Government.
We ask you Father that your will not man’s would be done.
We glorify your Holy and most precious name Father God and we thank you for protecting and bringing positive and Godly changes to Israel and American.
In Jesus Mighty name Amen Amen 🙏🏻
Father God,we ask that you intercede and prevent this Palestinian consulate from taking place in Israel. We come against any type of collusions the US may have or foresee having with the Palestinians.
