Morsi, Ahmadinejad on Yom Kippur

A Messianic Jewish leader is not surprised that two Islamic leaders would lash out against Israel at on a Jewish holy day.

While Israel was virtually shut down Wednesday for Yom Kippur, at the U.N. General Assembly across the Ocean, Egypt's new President Mohammed Morsi made his debut on the global stage, celebrating himself as the nation's first democratically elected leader who was swept into office after what he called a "great, peaceful revolution." He declared that the first issue for the world body should be certifying the rights of the Palestinian people.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)To that request, Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, has a suggestion.

"The ones who need to certify the Palestinian people and their rights [are] the Islamic leaders around the world who have put them in refugee camps and intended for them to become political pawns for decades and have turned them into homicide bombers," she offers.

And Markell finds it interesting that Iranian strongman Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used his address to the U.N. to bring up his vision of a new world order.

"Clearly, his new world order is under the Mahdi, their Messianic Islamic messiah, which he believes is virtually on the cusp of showing up here any day," the Olive Tree Ministries founder notes. "This is why diplomacy is such a joke and such a waste -- you cannot have any kind of diplomacy with a mind like this."

She adds that the president of the United States is a willing accomplice to the nightmare in the Middle East.
