The Frenzy Over Jerusalem Has Begun. Erdogan Threatens Trump “In Five To Ten Days We Will Gather The Muslim World In Istanbul And We Will Deal With The Issue Of Jerusalem”

By Walid Shoebat

U.S. President Donald Trump has just informed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in a telephone call that he plans to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. This despite all the threats coming from Turkish President Erdogan including  Mahmoud Abbas who warned Trump that the action will have “dangerous consequences.”


Erdogan lashed on Trump today saying: “Mr. Trump, Jerusalem is a red line for all Muslims” as the crowds jeered.

“We will follow this situation until the end” Erdogan said adding “if this step is taken, in 5 to 10 days we will gather the O.I.C [Organization of Islamic Cooperation] in Istanbul. And this will not be enough. We will gather the whole of the Muslim world in this summit. We will continue our struggle till the end and we will end our relationship with Israel”.

But this is not the first time the issue of Jerusalem has come up. In the past US Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and stating that the US embassy should be moved there. But an inbuilt waiver, which allows the president to temporarily postpone the move on grounds of “national security,” has been repeatedly invoked by successive US presidents, from Bill Clinton to George W. Bush and Barack Obama — meaning the law has never taken effect.

So will Trump simply follow the past and postpone such decision?

It doesn’t seem like it especially after Trump had called Mahmoud Abbas telling him of his decision.

So will we see the Middle East implode as result? At some point in time this will spark “Jerusalem will be a stumbling block to all surrounding nations” (Zechariah 12).

Erdogan is the leader of the O.I.C. Organization of Islamic Cooperation (O.I.C) considered to be the Muslim ‘U.N’ coming second to the United Nations in size and global power.



OIC headquarters

Erdogan’s use of the OIC as the conduit to dealing with Trump’s decision is no coincidence. In fact it was Israel’s ‘occupation’ of Jerusalem which caused the founding of the OIC in 1969 consisting of 57 member states, the organisation states that it is “the collective voice of the Muslim world”. It was set up as result of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the Caliphate after World War I which left a vacuum for a pan-Islamic institution. Losing the Six-Day War in 1967 provided the incentive needed where leaders of Muslim nations met in Rabat to establish the OIC on 25 September 1969.

In May this year, Erdogan spoke about the importance of Jerusalem to Muslims around the world and urged more Turks and others to visit the city that “Jerusalem is ‘The first of the two directions of prayer, the second of mosques, the third of sanctuaries’”

This issue will fuel Erdogan to speed up the formation of a Muslim League. We warned last year about Erdogan using Jerusalem to create a Muslim League adding:

“This “league” is a united Muslim states and the O.I.C plays a major role in this affair. Remember the Scriptures: “Cush, and Put, and Lud [Turkey], and all Arabia, and Libya, and the people of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.” (Ezekiel 30:5)

Don’t say that we never told you so, way ahead of time, that you may consider the state of your spiritual affairs by becoming one of the five virgins with oil in their lamps before the coming of the Bridegroom.”

And a league it is. Just as we stated will happen is happening. Erdogan even traveled all over the Muslim world to create such a league. From Saudi Iranian relations to expressing concern at the stand-off between India and Pakistan on Kashmir, Erdogan offered to get involved in settling many issues to bring this unity together. And now since the issue of Jerusalem is coming up again this will speed the process.

Erdogan now offers the OIC’s references to self-determination as a means to resolving differences not just over Jerusalem, but Qatar, Kashmir and other crises such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, the Palestinian problem, Iraq, Syria, the Kurdish issue, the Tibet, Taiwan all the way to Balochistan.

Erdogan said that the OIC is the answer:

“It (OIC) has its area of influence. It has economic and political strengths, it has a say in global matters and it can contribute to world peace. If something has been approved by all member-states, it should not be criticised or questioned. OIC members also have weight in the United Nations. Turkey supports India to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council.”

    Will Trump capitulate like Neville Chamberlain, or will he be like Churchill, a man of God, who wanted freedom rather than slavery?

    • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

      Churchill was not a man of God, ask the Bengalis, 10 million starved of famine during WWII in British India of famine because of his food requisitioning policies there, and when he learned of it he expressed that he could’ve cared less.

      • Joan Simpson

        Have a look at his biography. It explains a lot

        • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

          I’ve seen it, also read his history of Europe and more besides. The man loved war, and as Lord of the Admiralty during WWI, saw to it that the sinking of the Lusitania would bring America into WWI against the Germans

          • Joan Simpson

            I was only replying to your first comment. His faith is spoken of in his biography, ‘God and Churchill’ written by his great Grandson

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            everyone is, of course, complicated. We often don’t even know ourselves much less other people, so we should be kinder to each other.

    Keeping our lamps filled to the brim with oil!

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    I’ve been watching Erdogan with much interest, and wonder if he will become a monarch or remain a republican and populist strongman? Seems to me he wants to bring back the glories of the Ottoman Empire. I’ve also been watching a Turkish TV series, called; ”The Magnificent Century”, it has scenes like this;

    This is the East, and the West fails to understand it.

  • Raph Sebastian

    It seems that President Trump will announce Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Wednesday.

    President Trump also called the King of Jordan, President al Sisi of Egypt, Erdogan, al Saud and Abbas.

    No turning back now I suppose.

    • David G

      Do you Ralph or anybody on the site remember the American game show “Let’s Make A Deal?” Mr. Trump is a deal maker. It is how he has made a living building properties around the world. In my personal opinion, Mr. Trump sees an opportunity to make a deal with Israel and the Islamic world. It will be interesting to see if Donald Trump is able to negotiate a 7 year peace agreement with Erdogan and “the manny!” Would love to hear brother Walid’s thoughts on this matter.

      • DantesRivers

        Today on this site we have this article, US helps Iraqi christians and Putin helps Syrian christians. Chips that can be used to broker a deal that everyone will be happy with. “Peace and Safety”.

        • DantesRivers

          In the fall of 1966 I was 12 years old. I do not remember the year. I do remember,because of the hippies and the peace movement, the last half of the decade was much different from the first half of the decade. I have always been interested in the stock market, politics and events that threaten my personal security. For these reasons I remember the following events well.

          Fall of 1973, First year of college,Arab oil embargo,economic turmoil and summer jobs became scarce. Gas prices and the country were never the same.

          Fall of 1980 Iran hostage crises,Jimmy Carter leadership crisis,Ronald Reagan elected, A positive change.

          Fall of 1987 Iran Contra , hugh stock market correction, A weakened president. End of the Reagan Era.

          Fall of 1994. Hillarycare had been stopped, healthcare stocks bottomed out in the summer and Newt Gingrich and the republicans took over the House of Representatives.

          Fall of 2001 911 attack,stock market correction. The country has not been the same.

          Fall of 2008 Financial crises, stock market correction, Obama takes the lead in the election and our country and the world (especially the Middle East) are not the same.

          In the summer of 2015 Trump announced his Presidency and by the fall was well on his way to become President . The world is changing.

        Trump is making them an offer they cant refuse..lets see how peaceful muslims really are…if only the pope stood for the truth and denied the muslim claim to Jerusalem

  • richinnameonly

    Pivotal in that it gives Erdogan a big opportunity to lead a unified Islamic reaction to it. They will get behind him and hail their leader. Still thinking about 2023 but refuse to get stuck on a date. Just watching the season.

    • ChristianAmericanCrusader

      Very wise, don’t get stuck on dates as that can be a dangerous thing. Timing of events is ultimately in God’s hands. So much, however, will certainly be happening in the coming months/years….

  • ChristianAmericanCrusader

    “This issue will fuel Erdogan to speed up the formation of a Muslim League.” Indeed, you warned us about this would eventually happen just last year.

    Absolutely, as the US Embassy move unfolds, we will see things speeding up as Prophecy continues to unfold in our days.

  • AnthonyM

    Moving our embassy to Jerusalem is the right thing to do. Some threaten violence if we move OUR US embassy. But what did we, and the world, receive when we did not relocate? A steady stream of violence. So there is no reason to be cowed.

    • magaforever

      The pope prefers false peace along with obama …oh ya thats because they have armed guards and walls

    • Raph Sebastian

      The USA has recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel since the law was passed in 1995.

      The deferment of moving the embassy was the prerogative of the sitting President.

      All of them since Clinton right up to Obama all refused to enforce the law.

      • AnthonyM

        It is my understanding that President Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. To quote, “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” Trump said.

        “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” Trump said.

        Legal status of East Jerusalem, while broader agreement exists regarding future Israeli presence in West Jerusalem. The majority of UN member states and most international organisations do not recognise Israel’s ownership of East Jerusalem which occurred after the 1967 Six-Day War. This is a historic day.

        • ChristianAmericanCrusader

          President Trump did indeed, which is confirmed! Also, today is the Feast Day of St. Nicholas.

        • Raph Sebastian

          Yes he officially went on as a policy statement or Presidential Decree.

          Previously all the other presidents merely gave lip service to this policy. President Obama merely said that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital at AIPAC but fell very short to make it policy or to enforce the Jerusalem Embassy Act.

          I don’t know what this does to the endtmes scenario but for now things are going to to get a little messy before clarity comes through.

  • PaulF

    “We will deal with the issue of Jerusalem.”
    That’s exactly what God says HE will do. It pays to read his word.

  • magaforever

    I wonder what the pope says

  • magaforever

    Should the pope not support this??

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    Churchill fought more to the last American and Russian soldiers during WWII, to preserve the British Empire.

    And, is the West free?

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    Any debate about Stalin and the blood on his hands cannot obscure the tremendous bravery and courage and fighting skill of the Russian Soldier during WWII, they took on 80% of the Axis forces during the Great Patriotic War and utterly crushed them. Three defensive echelons in depth blunted the Fascist Blitzkrieg, and then the Red Army counter-offensive began which was the beginning of the end, the German attack in the south to Stalingrad being a desperate and futile gamble which cost them the war ultimately. None of this would have been possible if Stalin had not insisted on the biggest industrial and military buildup in the history of mankind, Stalin knowing that the Germans would invade Russia. And, contrary to previously held ideas, Stalin was not in charge fully until 1937 in the Soviet Union, but what he was able to do with the power he had was to compress 100 years of Industrial Revolution into 10 years. Was Stalin a ”monster”? Perhaps God used a Monster to destroy an even greater Monster called the Third Reich. I’m very suspicious of any narrative that attempts to equal the cosmic level villainy of the Fascists to that of the Communists. And the Fascists planned on doing much more; read about ”Generalplan Ost’ sometime, where the High Command talks about basically extermination of the Slavs after winning the war.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    The end result of starving is death, and if you have reading comprehension more than a vulgar unchristian mouth, you’d see where I mentioned the millions of Bengali DEAD.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    You can’t have the Bengali people fed and fight the Japs, the Bengalis that the British were allegedly defending, and whose men were often in British service themselves? Don’t be ridiculous, I’m the last person to want the Imperial Japanese succeed anywhere.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    It was Churchill’s callous response to the famine, which I was pointing out, showing that he had racist attitudes not too dissimilar to some of the Fascists Britain was fighting.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    Absolutely! The war against Germany was dragged as long as possible to try to have both Germany and Russia perish, this was more the British idea, not as much the American one, because FDR knew that America would need Russia’s help in the Far East against the Japanese Army, most of which was in China and Manchuria.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    hard to say at this juncture.

    It’s both. There is a search area on this website. Please do searches on the virgins and also on the final judgment. Please consider donating to this site. Thank you. 🙂

  • Raph Sebastian

    Well as I predicted, he did.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    Whatever man, Churchill was no Saint, and Stalin may have been a Monster but I praised the Russian people who beat the German invaders and crushed the Beast in his lair in Berlin, not Stalin, but they didn’t win without that Monster either. Seems to me that you’re just against the Russian people and disparage them and their sacrifices and well-deserved praise for their victory over Fascism. Fascism wasn’t better than Communism, it was worse, and anything else is just an attempt by the Fascists (did you know that the NSDAP went underground? That’s a fact) to rehabilitate themselves to a new generation so they can come to power somewhere again.

      By yer tone and demeanor you give yerself away as a Saul Alinsky sycophant! I smell you!

      • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

        You are a total idiot if you think that I’m in anyway like that Marxist scum that dedicated his book ‘rules for radicals’ to Lucifer, how dare you!

        My tone and demeanor is that of a man tired of the maligning of the Russian people, of the maligning of Orthodox Christianity, and the racism against Slavs by demented freaks who know nothing of the Early Church, of History, or of real culture.

        Walid, I’ve about had it, if you see this crap. This comment section with a few exceptional and wonderful people has become a total zoo of toxic people, scoundrels, lunatics and trolls. I’ve been posting here for years, and I’m sick of the evil and twisted people that are being drawn to post here. I’ve defended the Shoebats here, their ideas and all, and I get attacked for defending my people every single time now! It’s too much, what say you, Shoebats?!!!

        • LJW

          Please do not be side lined by the comments. It is the perspective they see and believe that they are coming from. Our history books are being rewritten all the time with lies but,in the end Yeshua will straighten all this out. Remember he uses people, past and present, and their agendas to further his timeline to his Kingship and authority to rule on earth as the ultimate King of Kings. Take heart the Russian people are wonderful people and evil permeates all blood lines, countries and cultures, no one is exempt.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    You like seeing other human beings die?

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    The God of Israel, Is God, and God is all-Good, though we may not always understand His reasonings because His Mind is to ours what ours is to an Insect. You don’t trust in God though because of your sin, most of us are that way including myself.

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    We all have our reasons, and Churchill, like Napoleon and others was complicated, I guess like all of us too.

    Alexander Solzhenitsyn was a prophet in our times, and represented the conscience of a people. He was a Believer, and a Russian patriot. I admired him too.

    This is a video of Solzhenitsyn’s speech at Harvard University, which went over like a turd in the punchbowl with the liberal elites back then;

    Here’s the transcript;

    “Must one point out that from ancient times a decline in courage has been considered the first symptom of the end?”

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    Some of the best people in the World, including the Prophets and early Saints and Our Lord Himself, was a ”Rag Head”, wearing a turban or cloth on their head, a smart thing to do in that region. It doesn’t take too much ”balls” to talk on the internet, and I’m sure you weren’t being racist or anything like that, so just take this as a reminder that there are a lot of good people out there in the world who probably would think your clothing and customs are strange, but they probably think you are a good person possibly too, right?

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    God bless you too, sir!

  • Grace Ziem

    Last year , June 2016, Erdogan signs an agreement with Israel “accepting” Jerusalem as the capitol (per your article), and now they are in an uproar? Is this posturing or what is his problem? (guess he doesn’t know prophecy says he’ll break his treaty after 3 1/2 years, not 1 1/2 years).
