Netanyahu: The Peace Talks Are Going Nowhere

:Prophecy Sign:  The future seven year peace agreement 
Will the current peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians result in a concrete deal?  While talks are expected to last until next spring, some current news reports seem to suggest very little progress is being made, (in fact going nowhere).  It is quite possible that the future peace deal that Daniel the Prophet speaks of, (Daniel 9:27), and that Isaiah alludes to, will not happen until after yet another major Arab/Israel war, (Psalm 83 war).

You boast, "We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place." Isaiah 28:15 NIV

Netanyahu: The Peace Talks Are Going Nowhere
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, during his visit to the United States this past week, that the peace talks with the Palestinian Authority are going nowhere. According to a report on Friday in the Maariv daily newspaper, Netanyahu made the comments in closed meetings with the heads of American Jewish organizations. Netanyahu reportedly repeated his position and that he is ready for a historic compromise with the Palestinian Authority, but added that "the problem was, and still is, their refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.” The Prime Minister, according to Maariv, also said that the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing incitement against Israel was another significant obstacle to the possibility of reaching an agreement. The comments indicated that the parties have so far only discussed the possibility of reaching a permanent settlement to the conflict, while the possibility of an interim agreement is not on the agenda.

Netanyahu: For peace, Palestinians must recognize Jewish homeland
There will be no peace with the Palestinians until they recognize the Jewish right to a homeland in Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday night at Bar-Ilan University. “A necessary condition to getting a true solution [to the Israeli-Palestinian] conflict was and remains clear as the sun: ending the refusal to recognize the right of the Jews to a homeland of their own in the land of their fathers,” he said. “That is the most important key to solving the conflict.”

Abbas says an agreement possible in nine months
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas sounded an optimistic note Monday in a Ramallah meeting with left-leaning MKs about the ongoing peace talks. “The period of nine months [set aside for the current talks] is enough to reach an agreement,” Abbas said, “All the issues were discussed in the past, whether at Camp David, Taba, or with [former PM Ehud] Olmert.” He said the Palestinian side saw the talks as critical for peace.

PLO official: Palestinians 'seriously considering' declaring failure of peace talks
The Palestinians are seriously considering declaring the failure of the peace talks with Israel, a senior PLO official said Wednesday. Hanna Amireh, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, said that this was one of the scenarios that were discussed during the last meeting of the Palestinian leadership. Amireh accused Israel of seeking to “win time” and blame the Palestinians for the failure of the US-sponsored talks. Israel, he said, is benefiting from the prolonged negotiations in order to “impose more facts on the ground and dictate the outcome of the talks.”
