PA Official: Abbas Ready for Israel as a Jewish State

Prophecy Sign:  The seven year covenant of peace

A very interesting turn of events has seen a softening of position on the part of the PLO with regards to Israel's demand to be recognized by the Palestinians as a state for the Jewish people.  Seems that P.A. Chief, Mahmoud Abbas is ready to commit to such a demand as part of the U.S. framework agreement now in the works.  This is a key demand on the part of the Israelis and we would expect that the Palestinians would not simply give such a recognition without a similar acquiescence on the part of Israel to Palestinian demands;  (Such as handing over East Jerusalem to the new Palestinian state as it's capital perhaps?)

The seven year peace agreement of Daniel 9:27 is nearly upon us, and thus the rush to claim "peace, peace' is ever closer to being uttered by the world, (and in particular, Israel).

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

PA Official: Abbas Ready for Israel as a Jewish State
A senior PLO official was quoted as saying that Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas was prepared to recognize Israel – this time, for real. A story in Maariv Thursday quoted Nabil Amaro as saying on PA television that Abbas would agree to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, as part of the negotiations being conducted byUS Secretary of State John Kerry. Israel has insisted that the PA recognize Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people, and so far Abbas has refused to do so. According to Abbas, the PA has already recognized Israel's right to exist and has promised to respect whatever borders are negotiated. By recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, he claims, the rights of Israeli Arabs will be damaged, and the PA would no longer be able to demand that Israel accept hundreds of thousands of Arabs, as the PA is demanding.

US: Peace framework will recognize Israel as Jewish state
US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro asserted on Friday that the framework peace deal currently being negotiated by US Secretary of State of John Kerry will include Palestinian recognition of Israel as “the nation state of the Jewish people.” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s insistence that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas recognize Israel’s Jewishness has been a sticking point in negotiations, with the Palestinians refusing to accede to a demand that would tacitly do away with Palestinian hopes for a “right of return” for refugees and their descendants. 

Fatah: Israel and Hamas Holding High Level Contacts
A Fatah spokesperson said Wednesday that it was clear to the terror organization that Israel was in contact with Hamas terrorists. In an interview with the Palestinian Authority-controlled Ma'an news service, Ahmad Assaf, commenting on reports that “messages” had been exchanged between Israel and Hamas, said that the contacts were actually more extensive than previously reported, with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu himself in contact with top Hamas terrorists. Hamas, he said, was preparing itself for the possibility of a deal between Israel and the PA, based on the plan to be laid out by US Secretary of State John Kerry. That deal would include temporary borders which would be finalized in further negotiations, along with security arrangements.
