Prophecy Sign: The seven year false covenant of peaceWell here is a potential flash point for Middle-East war; The collapse of the Israel/Palestinian peace negotiations. And now that Hamas, (a terrorist organization), has reunited with Fatah in Palestinian reconciliation, will the saner Fatah voices be drowned out by the more radical and bent on war Hamas voices?
Former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair is convinced that a negotiated peace between the Palestinians and Israel will be the necessary step for world peace with the Islamic world. (Hey even Hamas are saying they would finally recognize the existence of Israel). Is it no wonder that bible prophecy indicates that on the signing of the seven year covenant, (Daniel 9:27), that the world will cry out "Peace, Peace", in wonderment and joy? Of course students of bible prophecy know what comes next.
While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 NIV

Tony Blair: Solving The Israeli/Palestinian Conflict Will Heal ME From Radical Islam
In a speech at the Bloomberg London H., the Quartet representative to the Middle East, (Tony Blair), argued the fate of
Israel “remains absolutely core to the region and the world” and that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was right to invest so much effort into attempting to forge an Israeli-Palestinian peace. “It remains absolutely core to the region and the world,” he said. “Not because the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the cause of our problems. But because solving it would be such a victory for the very forces we should support.” Rather than the Israeli-Palestinian conflict being the key to resolving the larger problems of the Middle East, it may be that “we’re about to enter a new phase where solving the region’s problems [is] a critical part of solving the Israeli-Palestinian issue.”
