Arab leaders believe the upcoming US sponsored peace conference is just a waste of time

With the US sponsored Middle East Peace Conference less than two months away, Arab leaders are saying that Israeli PM Ehud Olmert is politically weak, it seems that Israel has nothing new to offer and the conference is more for the benefit of the US than the Middle East; thus, the conference will be a waste of time according to Arab leaders.

The Arab countries' fears were echoed recently by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak who said that the conference must have a clear agenda and result in feasible decisions or failure could lead to an eruption of violence in the Middle East. The Arab League is suggesting that the Quartet, which does include the US plus the UN, the EU and Russia, should put together the conference instead of the US alone.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Talking about peace in the Middle East and a peace conference to bring about that peace is part of a scenario that is found in Bible prophecy for the Middle East region in the Last Days.

As Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice travels throughout the Middle East trying to set an agenda for the upcoming peace conference in the Middle East, there are more and more Arab leaders that are saying they may not attend the US sponsored conference. What Arab leaders are calling for is a conference that will make a difference and not be a meeting of diplomatic niceties. Even some Arab leaders who have agreed to attend the conference say now they may not join the conference because to date it seems it would be a waste of time. The Arab League's request for the Quartet to sponsor the conference instead of only the US would position Tony Blair, the Quartet's Middle East Peace Envoy, in the catbird seat.

Talk about peace in the Middle East and the upcoming conference does fit the prophetic scenario that is found in Bible prophecy. Ezekiel 38:8, 11 speak of a time when Israel will be at peace, at least for a period of time before the Middle East erupts into full-blown war. Daniel 9:27 reveals that one man, the Antichrist, will bring about this long hoped for peace and the base for the Antichrist is the revived Roman Empire, the EU of today.

Talk about peace in the Middle East is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
