Titled "There Is a Solution to This Filthy War—Foreign Occupation," Mr. Fisk's article calls for international action and predicts that "in time, we will close down the Middle East war. With Russian and EU and UN support, there will, eventually, be American and NATO troops in Jerusalem. There will be a western protection force in the West Bank and Gaza—and in Israel. The Israeli and Palestinian armies will have to return to barracks. Jerusalem will be an international city."

Bible prophecy shows that Jerusalem will be a focus of world conflict immediately before the return of Jesus Christ. "When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near ... Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled" (Luke 21:20 Luke 21:20And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is near.
