Israelis and Palestinians aim to negotiate a 'final' peace deal after positive talks

Prophecy Sign:  The future seven year peace treaty

Could a potential peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians be only a few months away?  Would that then be the agreement that the future Antichrist will confirm and implement with a seven year time frame?  In one of the articles below, there is an interesting suggestion that before there can be a peace deal between Israel the Palestinians, that a 1994 agreement must be upheld and acted upon, (confirming an already existing covenant perhaps??).

He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him." Daniel 9:27 NIV

Israelis and Palestinians aim to negotiate a 'final' peace deal after positive talks
Israelis and Palestinians have agreed to intensify peace talks aimed at reaching a final agreement, not an interim accord, US Secretary of State John Kerry has announced. The two sides met on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York at a conference of donors looking for ways to revive the fragile Palestinian economy. Speaking before the closed-door meeting known as the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee, Mr Kerry said the goal of talks between Israel and the Palestinians is a "final status agreement," not an interim one.

Palestinian president wants peace agreement with Israel in 9 months, but not an interim deal
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas pledged Thursday to continue recently resumed negotiations with Israel with "an insistence on success" and the aim of reaching a permanent peace accord within nine months. Addressing the U.N. General Assembly for the first time representing the state of Palestine, Abbas stressed that the Palestinians will reject any interim or transitional agreement that could become "eternalized." "Our objective is to achieve a permanent and comprehensive agreement and a peace treaty between the state of Palestine and Israel that resolves all outstanding issues and answers all questions, which allows us to officially declare an end of conflict and claims," he said.

Obama Urged Faster Progress in 'Peace Talks'
US President Barack Obama urged Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in their meeting Monday to advance more quickly in the negotiations with the Palestinian Authority (PA), reports Haaretz daily newspaper. The issues include final borders of a PA state, a solution for Jerusalem, and solution for PA "refugees." A senior official in the US administration told the newspaper that besides discussing the Iranian threat, the two leaders spoke at length about the Israeli-Palestinian issue. Obama told Netanyahu that he appreciates the difficult steps he took in order to renew the negotiations – especially the release of terrorist prisoners.

The Temple Mount and the Peace Treaty
On October 26, 1994, Israel and Jordan signed a “Treaty of Peace between the State of Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan”. Like most peace treaties, it was designed to normalize relations between former enemies. The Treaty contains a Preamble, 30 Articles, four Annexes and ‘Agreed Minutes.’  The Treaty is still in place.
Specifically, Article 9 guarantees free access to historically significant places in Jerusalem. Israel agrees to respect Jordan's special role in protecting Muslim Holy shrines in Jerusalem. Israel agrees to give high priority to Jordan's historic role in these shrines during permanent status negotiations.  The states also pledge to promote interfaith relations among Judaism, Islam and Christianity, with the aim of working towards religious understanding, moral commitment, freedom of religious worship, tolerance and peace.
If the world wants Peace in the Middle East, it should act now. It should demand that the Arab uphold the terms of the 1994 Agreement before moving forward with any new Agreement. At the very least, this should be Israel’s position.
