Israel-Palestine talks falter despite US efforts

Prophecy Sign:  The seven year covenant/peace agreement

Peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians seem to be going nowhere as both sides hold fast to their respective positions.  Therefore U.S. President, Barack Obama, is planning on getting more involved in the process by putting pressure on the Israelis, (and if need be, the Palestinians), to accept the Kerry proposed framework. Obama is not the Antichrist, but we expect that the future "man of sin" will work in similar fashion to finally get Israel and the many to put pen to paper to sign off on this future seven year peace agreement.

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

Israel-Palestine talks falter despite US efforts
With just two months to go before the deadline expires for reaching a framework that would enable the continuation of US-brokered Israeli-Palestinian peace diplomacy, the two sides seem as far apart as ever on the core issues of their dispute. This, despite 10 trips to the region by US Secretary of State John Kerry, who in June announced the resumption of negotiations after three years in which there were no contacts. Initially, Mr Kerry said the goal was to reach a full-fledged end of conflict accord within nine months. But he subsequently scaled that down to a framework agreement to enable further talks by the end of April. In recent weeks, as noted by leading Israeli analyst Yossi Alpher, Mr Kerry has backtracked further, putting the goal as a document which the sides do not have to endorse as long as they do not reject.

Abbas ‘exploded with rage’ at Kerry over ‘insane’ framework proposals
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas left a two-day meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Paris last week fuming over Kerry’s proposals for a framework accord between Israel and the Palestinians, according to a Palestinian report. The top American diplomat reportedly offered for Abbas to form a Palestinian capital in the neighborhood of Beit Hanina, not all of East Jerusalem, as the Palestinians have demanded. 

Report: Obama to pressure Netanyahu into accepting Kerry framework proposal
Undeterred by the failed efforts of his predecessors to clinch an Israeli-Palestinian peace treaty, US President Barack Obama is planning on getting more involved directly in the negotiations. According to The New York Times, the president is expected to appeal to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to adopt a framework plan for final-status peace negotiations.

‘Obama to press Netanyahu, Abbas to accept framework’
US President Barack Obama is gearing up to take a more active role in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and will begin by pressuring the sides to accept US Secretary of State John Kerry’s framework proposals, according to a report that cited administration officials on Wednesday. In his scheduled meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday in Washington, Obama will make an urgent appeal to the Israeli leader to accept Kerry’s generalized roadmap for final status negotiations, according to The New York Times.  The US president is expected to apply the same pressure to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas when the two meet next month.
