Clinton Claims Israel Offered Temple Mount To Palestinians

Zechariah 12:3 “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.”

Editor's Note: Jim Bakker teaches to watch Israel closely because it is the prophetic timeclock for the unfolding of Last Days events. In Matthew 24, Israel is the fig tree that the Lord told His people to observe to understand the times. It is like a barometer of what is happening in the nations.

Former President Bill Clinton claims that Israel had offered control of the Temple Mount to the Palestinians in 2000 during negotiations Clinton called a “roaring success.”

In a speech at Georgetown University, Clinton said that Ehud Barak had agreed to give Yasser Arafat control of the holiest site in Judaism in return for Israel having total control of the area around the Western Wall.

The talks broke down when Arafat demanded to keep control 50 feet of land that leads up to the entrance of the Western Wall tunnels.  Israel refused saying that Muslims would go into the tunnels and destroy the ruins of the Jewish temples.

Clinton said that Israel was likely justified in their refusal to protect the temple ruins.

Clinton added that the 2000 summit taught him that you need trust more than agreement.  He said that without trust, there was no way to establish an agreement.

    • Here is a question that just occurred to me while I read the article on former President Clinton and the 2000 negotions.
      It seems that Israel is determined to re-build the Temple why? It has been destroyed twice. They are worshipping in synagogues. Does modern Israel really want to rebuild the Temple or just the Orthodox Jew population/faction?
