    The division of the Jewish people into two states is a sign of divine judgment which is prophesied by Zechariah. Soon a true prophet of Israel shall shepherd the flock of slaughter, truly the most miserable and pathetic sheep. And he shall take two shepherd's staffs, the one he shall call ?Grace? and the other he shall call ?Unity?. And he shall feed and shepherd the flock. And they shall come to the prophet of Israel as people come, and they will sit before him as the people of the Lord, and they will hear the words he says, but they will not do them. With their mouths they will show much love, but their hearts shall be set like hardened concrete because of their idolatrous love of money and they shall prefer to go after greedy gain. And the prophet will be to them as a very lovely love song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument. And they shall hear his words with an outward show of love and respect but they will not do them. Then the prophet shall break into two pieces his staff, the one called ?Unity?. Then the Jewish people shall divide into two separate nations, because the Lord will annul the brotherhood that exists between Judea and Israel.
