US President Bush at the Annapolis ME Peace Summit has warned of difficult compromises if there is ever to be peace in the Middle East

The Bush administration is hoping the Annapolis Summit will kick start the first Israeli-Palestinian talks in seven years and begin a program of meeting over the next year which will lead to a Palestinian state and some kind of peace in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of Hamas faithful rallied against the Annapolis Summit in Gaza as they join with Iran and Hezbollah to denounce the peace summit as a Jewish propaganda stunt and very dangerous for the Palestinians.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The US hosted Middle East Peace Summit in Annapolis Maryland has interesting ramifications that can be found in Bible prophecy.

President George W. Bush, in what many have called a failed summit even before it started, has had a measure of success by having forty Arabs leaders come to the table to discuss peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. It remains to be seen if two very weak political leaders, Israeli PM Olmert and PA President Mahmoud Abbas, can reach any type of agreement.

Bible prophecy however, does speak directly to the issue of peace in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians. As it relates t peace, the ancient Jewish prophet, Daniel reveals that a world leader will step forward and confirm the peace agreements already on the table, the ones not working right now, Daniel 9:27. This world leader will be the Antichrist, a European leader that has worked for peace in the Middle East before he comes to power, Daniel 7:8, 24. The other issue is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that Bible prophecy says will not be resolved until Jesus Christ comes back, Malachi 1, Ezekiel 35, Jeremiah 49 and the little prophetic book of Obadiah.

According to these prophetic scenarios, the Annapolis Middle East Peace Summit is just another step along the way towards the time when all of Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
