Prophecy Sign: The future seven year peace/covenant
Once again, the push for Middle-East peace is on again. This time with a couple of carrots at the end of the stick. Should Israel sit down and talk peace, former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair promises that the Arab nations will work towards normalized relations with Israel. In addition, Egypt which already has a peace deal with Israel wants to be in on the talks to help kick-start the process.
One day soon, peace will be negotiated, and the nations of the world, including Israel, will declare it to be peace at last. However the bible tells us that this is but a false peace and it will not last.
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

The latter, who intends to mediate between the two, is said to be planning the summit to take place in Cairo.

Speaking at a conference in London, Blair said that there’s a chance, under the present circumstances in the Middle East, that Arab countries would be willing to be more flexible in framing the outlines of their initiative and take normalization steps while Israeli-Palestinian negotiations were underway, rather than waiting for a permanent status agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
