The Roadmap to Peace
By Dr. William L. Sonny Payne

The following issues are addressed point by point.

1. In regard to the land of Palestine, as we have shown, the Bible is very clear as to who owns Palestine. The Jewish people own Palestine.

2. The Palestinians today are not Palestinians, but displaced Arabs that their leaders and the Arab nations are using as pawns in order to dislodge Israel from their land and to ultimately destroy them.

The word Palestinian comes from the word Philistine. They were a people who migrated from Caphtor to the area that is known today as the Gaza Strip (see Amos 9:7). They were in the land of Canaan during the time of Abraham (Genesis 21:34) and were an enemy of the Jewish people for many years until they disappeared from the pages of history after the Jewish people returned from Babylonian captivity around 520 BC.

When Israel became a nation again in 1948, the Jewish people were called Palestinians. Yassar Arafat began to use the name Palestinians in order gain the sympathy of the nations and establish a "Palestinian State" in the heart of Israel, with the ultimate objective of procuring the entire land, and Jerusalem, and eliminating the Jewish people. That is the goal of Islam. The Jews and Christians existence makes the Koran and the Hadith null and void. They must either convert us to Islam or destroy us.

The Palestinians today are not Palestinians, they are Arabs. They are not a separate ethnic group whose homeland has been taken away by Israel. In order to be a separate ethnic group you must have your own language, food diet, clothing, religion, etc. The Palestinians have none of these. They speak Arabic, eat Arabic food, dress like Arabs, and are Islamic in religion. They are Arabs. Yet the world has bought into the untruth that they are a separate people, and that the Israeli's have taken their land.

3. Israel is God's Chosen People. Even though they have turned away from God, they are still His people, because of blood covenant, and He has a plan for them in these last days. Genesis 12:3 tells us that God would bless those who blessed Abraham and curse those who cursed him. This is because Abraham was in blood covenant oneness with God. This promise was passed on to Israel. Numbers 24:8-9 says, "

God brought (Israel) forth out of Egypt: (Israel) has strength like the wild ox: he shall eat up the nations, his enemies, crushing their bones and piercing them through with his arrows. He crouched, he lay down as a lion; and as a lioness, who shall rouse him? Blessed (of God) is he who blesses you (who prays for and contributes to your welfare) and cursed (of God) is he who curses you (who in word, thought, or deed would bring harm upon you). (Amplified Bible)


4. In Deuteronomy 32:8-10 it says, "When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the children of men, He set the bounds of the peoples according to the number of the Israelites. For the Lord's portion is His people; Jacob (Israel) is the lot of His inheritance...He kept him as the pupil of His eye." (Amplified Bible.)

God established the boundaries of the nations according to the boundaries of the land of Israel. Also, when God talks about Israel being the pupil of His eye, the essence of what He is saying is, "When you go against Israel it is the same as sticking your finger in My eye". When a person or nation does that, they are in great danger of God's wrath.

5. America told the world that we would pursue terrorism and terrorist states until terrorism was eliminated. It began in Afganistan, then Iraq. But there has been a double standard set when it comes to Israel and what is known today as "Palestinians". Why don't we give the Palestinians a state here in the United States so they can be our neighbors and blow us to pieces like they are doing to the Israelis? It is preposterous to even consider such a thing. Why are we not enforcing the "Roadmap to Peace" by eliminating the PLO, Hamas, etc.? Instead, we are asking Israel to concede everything and the Palestinians nothing. It does not make sense. This is not God's way. It is against the Word of God.

The terrorist states and organizations must be dealt with in a way that is clear. Syria, Iran, and Saudi Arabia are three of the greatest threats to our society, yet nothing is being done against them. I pray that we do not allow oil and the investments of Arab monies in United States Stock Market to keep us from doing the right thing.

The wrong use of money and worldly pressure is Satan's way of doing things. God's way is truth, integrity, and faith in Him and His Word. Truth will stand when everything else falls apart.

Our government is trying to use money as a leverage against Israel in order to force them to accept a peace agreement with the Palestinians. This must not be done. America cannot deal with Israel as with other nations. They are still God's Chosen People and we must not abuse our God-given power and wealth in this way. Those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse her will be cursed. Using the threat of withholding monies from Israel is a curse and God will judge us for it. God is not honoring the "Road Map to Peace" because it is perverted, one-sided against Israel, and against His Word.

6. There is nothing wrong with the Arabs living, working, and having land in Israel, but there will be no peace until the terrorist groups are wiped out. We cannot make peace with them, much less establish a Palestinian State. In Zechariah 12:1-3, God says:

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 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." And in Joel 3:1-2 God says that He will judge and punish the nations for their treatment of Israel and the land He gave them (His land). He will deal with them"... for (their treatment of) My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and (because) they have divided My land. (Amplified Bible)


Our relationship with Israel must become solidified, and our treatment of her must change. We must stop using her like an abused wife in order to placate the Arab nations, the United Nations, European Union, and Russia. Their futures are also based on their treatment of Israel. We must not force a Palestinian State on her. We do not have to agree with, or support, everything she does, but we must stand with her in truth, trust, and integrity. Israel is going to go through some horrible times of testing in the near future, even to the point of wondering if she will even survive. But God will bring her through. We as the United States of America do not want to be classed as an enemy of Israel. That would be disastrous for us. We must support and finance her with what she needs. Then we will be blessed.

How we deal with the Islamic situation is also going to play a major role in the destiny of our country. Islam is not a religion of peace, but of the sword. Their objective is, and always has been, to take over the world. They say that those who will not convert to Islam must be eliminated, especially the Jews and Christians. Their God "Allah" is not our God Jehovah. They worship a black stone in Mecca. Their strategy has been to infiltrate the nations of the world, establish their mosques and work out of them through subversion and deceit, ultimately launching an attack on each nation to conquer it. We cannot harbor and coddle our enemies. We must deal with them as enemies. The choice is ours. It is not too late if we act now. Seize the day!
