Tony Blair says there could be Middle East peace within the year

The Middle East Peace Envoy for the Quartet (United States, European Union, United Nations and Russia) Tony Blair says an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement could be reached within the year but only if all sides agree to peaceful negotiations. The former British Prime Minister said there is a great sense of hope and expectation in the Middle East after United States President Obama's recent outreach to the Islamic world, and if everyone would commit themselves to a two state solution, this peace deal could be in place within the year.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The fact that the Middle East Peace Envoy, Tony Blair, says there could be peace in the Middle East within the year is a page out of Bible prophecy for the end times.

Following the recent speech by United States President Obama to the Moslem world, there has been expectation that there is indeed hope for some kind of peace in the Middle East. The fact that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said he and Israel would accept a Palestinian state howbeit a demilitarized state has also given hope to those working for a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Now, with Tony Blair's comments that there could be a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians within the year, the peace process seems to be moving towards a deal.

This scenario is really a page out of Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel wrote of the revival of the Old Roman Empire which would be led by a world leader powerful enough to put this peace deal together. The prophecy of the Revived Roman Empire (Daniel 7:7,24) could well be fulfilled in the near future. The infrastructure actually is in place - that is the European Union. The world leader that comes from that political powerhouse (Daniel 7:8,24) could be the permanent president that is called for in the European Union's Lisbon Treaty. Daniel 9:27 does reveal this world leader will bring peace to the Middle East.

Tony Blair's declaration of a Middle East peace within the year does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
