    Indonesia Reaffirms Support for Palestine as Israel Reveals Plan to Annex West Bank

    Jakarta. Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi has reaffirmed Indonesia's support for Palestine at the same time as Israel revealed its latest plan to annex parts of Palestinian territory in the West Bank.

    "Indonesia is one of the strongest supporters of Palestine. We are very concerned about Israel's West Bank plan," Retno said on Thursday.

    Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday it will annex the occupied West Bank in July despite growing condemnations by the global community and even its own allies, as Time has reported.

    Around half a million Jews have settled in the West Bank since 1967, but the area has never been officially recognized as Israeli territory since the international community deems the settlement a violation of international law.

    Over two million Palestinians also still live in the territory.

    Annexing the West Bank will cancel the popular two-state solution and would lead to the destruction of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, a holy site to Muslim Palestinians.

    The move – which Netanyahu has called a "historic opportunity" – was planned as Israel's biggest ally, the United States, continued to show signs of supporting Israel's expansion.

    US President Donald Trump's rerun for the 2020 presidency has also widened the chance for Israel to go ahead with the plan.

    Retno said she picked up a call from US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday during which she asked the US to help stop Israel's plan.

    "I told [Secretary Pompeo] that Indonesia's position remains unchanged on the Palestine issue. Our hope is for the US leadership to stop Israel's plan to annex more parts of the West Bank," Retno said.

    Retno also brought up the issue during a UN Security Council teleconference on Wednesday, arguing that international law compliance is needed to stop the plan.

    "Compliance to international humanitarian law is desperately needed now as [Israeli] annexation and Covid-19 might soon strike the Palestinians all at once," Retno said.

    "The world and the council have to restore Palestinian rights to its territory according to the 1967 borders. We must not let further annexation to happen," she said.

    Retno has also written to other foreign ministers, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh, the European Union, countries of the non-aligned movement and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to remind them to maintain peace in Palestine and support the two-state solution.

    "Annexation will not only threaten peace and stability in the region but also undermine all efforts to reach a lasting political solution on the Palestinian issue, which is the two-state solution," Retno said.

    The Arab League has deemed the annexation a "war crime." Saudi Arabia has also rejected the plan despite its closeted relations with Israel.

    The EU's foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, said annexing the West Bank would be a violation of international law and pledged to stop it using "all our diplomatic capacities."

    "I call for the international community to work together to uphold international consensus on Palestine, to achieve a lasting peace where the democratic state of Palestine and Israel could live in peaceful coexistence," Retno said.

    Can you show me the prophecy ? As I also have read bible, what I know there is a country named as babel as the country which is illustrated there as against God that will be destroyed in the end times.

    It is in the book of revelation, the last chapter in bible. I have older version of it. The ones which hasnt been edited. (1975 edition)

    PS: of course bible has been edited for quite many times, but the version that I have is the older version than what Christian have Today.

    Sad to say but Palestinians don't have any good options. They have to either accept apartheid or a vulnerable weak state.

    Eze 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
    Eze 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
    Eze 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
    Eze 38:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
    Eze 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
    Eze 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
    Eze 38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

    another note:
    The book of apocalypse speaks of roman catholic in catholic europe as babylon that will oppose Christ & be destroyed
    at end time

    Eze 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
    Eze 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
    Eze 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

    Tarshish is the UK with her young lions like USA & UK's former colonies.
    Dedan & sheba are the nations in arabia peninsula.
    they will be in the camp of israel against the northern force lead by russia.

    Indonesia better not get embroiled into some middle eastern crap that does not affect them in any way. After all the combined arab armies couldn't do jacks*** to Israel.
