Prophecy Sign: The future seven year Peace covenant
Well the efforts are under way again to revive the stagnant Middle-East peace talks. It's interesting that it has been determined that 'world powers' must intervene to bring about new talks based on the 1993 Oslo Accords. In case your wondering, here is what one website we found had to say about the Oslo Accord:
"Oslo sketched out a peace process with a two-phase timetable. During a five-year interim period, Oslo envisioned a series of step-by-step measures to build trust and partnership. Palestinians would police the territories they controlled, cooperate with Israel in the fight against terrorism, and amend those sections of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) charter that called for Israel's destruction. Israel would withdraw almost entirely from Gaza, and in stages from parts of the West Bank. An elected Palestinian Authority would take over governance of the territories from which Israel withdrew." After this five-year interim period, negotiators then would determine a final peace agreement to resolve the thorniest issues: final borders, security arrangements, Jerusalem, whether the Palestinians would have an independent state, Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza, and Palestinian refugees' claims to land and property left behind when they fled Israel.

While some of the above did happen, (Israel withdrew from Gaza, the Palestinians police the own territory), the final peace deal has obviously never been negotiated. But now there seems to be "substantial" movement towards some sort of regional peace deal based on initiatives from both Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Even Israel is ready to jump on board with this latest move.
Are we getting closer to '
the covenant of death', the seven year peace deal that the bible prophesied about? Stayed tuned, this could get interesting.
World powers have duty to revive Middle East peace talks - EU
The European Union's foreign policy chief said on Friday that major powers had a duty to revive talks between Israel and Palestine and that the perspectives created by the Oslo accords in 1993 were at risk. "The policy of settlement expansion and demolitions, violence, and incitement tells us very clearly that the perspective that Oslo opened up is seriously at risk of fading away," Federica Mogherini told reporters in Paris during an international conference aimed to create momentum for peace talks.
Regional peace efforts ‘more substantial’ than reported
There is a substantive effort underway to launch a regional peace initiative between Israel and several Arab neighbors, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon indicated Wednesday, as he called on Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog to join the Likud-led coalition. “The rumors and talk of a significant diplomatic move in the region are far more substantial than mere hints in newspapers,” the Kulanu party leader said at an event in Netanya. “I call on the Zionist Union to join the government and not to miss the historic window of opportunity that has been created,” he added. “This is not the time or place to offer details, but we have a rare opportunity for a dramatic shift at the regional level.”
In surprise move, Netanyahu says he’s ready to negotiate based on Saudi peace initiative
