Russian leader, at Arab League meeting in Egypt, backs independent country with capital in East Jerusalem

(SOURCE)  Russian President Vladimir Putin said his country will support efforts to build a Palestinian state with a capital in East Jerusalem.

Putin pledged his support Saturday during a meeting of the Arab League in the Red Sea resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh.

“Palestinians have the right to establish an independent and habitable state with a capital in East Jerusalem,” Putin reportedly told the leaders of 22 Arab states, according to media reports.

He added, “Russia will continue to contribute to achieving this goal through bilateral and multilateral channels.”

Putin reportedly also called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his reelection and to discuss the talks on Iran’s nuclear program, to which Russia is a party as part of the P5+1 world powers.

  1. It could happen soon, as Revelation 11:2 says: “it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months.” I suspect that a deal has been underway for some time (with secret and unpopular terms) which might allow for major concessions from both sides, including a new Jewish Temple and an independent Palestinian nation in 2016.
