Speaking to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, told the members of the parliament that the Israeli war in Gaza was a war crime and has urged Europe to play a bigger role in the Middle East renewing his calls for the European Union to be peacemakers and election monitors in the Middle East.
Jimmy’s Prophetic Prospective on the News
Though the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was uncharacteristically quiet during the recent Gaza war and even condemned Hamas for instigating the war, the Palestinian leader is now saying that the Israeli war on Gaza was a war crime and he wants the international community to get involved. Abbas used the Gaza war to call for the European Union to become more involved in the Middle East. The Palestinian leader wants the European Union to take a definite part in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
This present scenario is very close to the prophetic scenario that is found in Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel reveals that in the last days, the "ten horns" (Daniel 7:7), and the "little horn" (Daniel 7:8) will be fulfilled by the Revived Roman Empire, today's European Union, and the Antichrist who will come to power as the leader of the Revived Roman Empire - the European Union of today. This worldwide leader, the Antichrist, will establish peace in the Middle East (Daniel 9:27). The Revived Roman Empire will play a major role in Bible prophecy.
The call by the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for the European Union to become more involved in the Middle East and, in particular, as it relates to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
