The White House has renewed its call for the resumption of the long stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks in light of another four years for the Obama administration and light of the new complexion and makeup of the Israeli government.
Israel is willing to resume the peace talks but only with no preconditions and the Palestinians want Jerusalem for its capital, the Palestinian refugees having a right of return, and no Jewish settlements, now these preconditions are a no starter for Israel which basically means no resumption of these peace talks.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
A call by the White House for the resumption of the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks is a precursor to the end of times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.
In his first term, US President Obama failed to advance the peace negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Israel has been willing to come back to the negotiating table but the Palestinians have refused unless they have some decisions being made before they even start the process. The Palestinians want a return to the 1967 borders, they want the right of return for Palestinian refugees, and they want Jerusalem as the capital of their state of Palestine. These preconditions are a no-starter for the Israeli government, thus these stalled Palestinian talks are dead in the water.
The ancient Jewish prophets said the Palestinians, the Edomites, descendants of Esau in biblical times, would come back to power in the last days foretells that the Palestinians will rebuild, however the Lord says the Palestinian borders will actually be the borders of wickedness. Ezekiel reveals that the people of Mount Seir, the Palestinian people today, would rise up, kill the Jews and take the land that God has given to the Jewish people, Ezekiel 35:5, 10. Obadiah foretold of a time when the Palestinians would control the holy mountain of God, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and these Palestinians would claim this sacred site for themselves, Obadiah 15-18. Daniel 9:27 says that indeed the Antichrist will establish a pseudo peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
A White House call for peace does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
