Mubarak urges Obama to back an overall Israel-Palestinian peace settlement - in stages
Egyptian President Mubarak has presented a program to US President Obama that he would like to see phased in in stages over the next two years. Here is an outline of the Mubarak plan reported by Debkafile.
The program Mubarak put before him consisted of four main points, as reported here by DEBKAfile:
1. A US Middle East peace plan will provide a general framework for the peace talks Israel will conduct with the Palestinians and Arab governments - but not go beyond former American statements.
2. A settlement must be sought in stages, with clear-cut steps for executing the peace plan. No time limit should be set for the end of negotiations.
Mubarak's program runs contrary to the position taken hitherto by President Obama, who pushed for rapid peace to go forward simultaneously between Israel and the Palestinians, Syria and Lebanon.
3. Haste would be of no avail, in the Egyptian ruler's view, because of the deep internal feud between the Palestinian Hamas and Fatah factions and split between the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
4. Mubarak advised Obama to trust in Netanyahu's good intentions for seeking a Middle East peace. "I trust him," said the Egyptian president, "after he pledged to me that his government would be a government of peace."
DEBKAfile's Washington sources report that it is extremely rare to hear any Arab ruler praise an Israeli leader - certainly in such warm terms. DEBKAfile
According to Mr. Mubarak, President Obama will be unveiling a first draft of the peace plan next month. He was also in Washington to urge Obama to place stopping Iran's nuclear program at the top of the list.
One important point of the peace plan every Christian should take notice of is the frequent mention of a time limit. The Bible says (Daniel 9:27) the future peace plan will have a time limit of seven-years attached to it, likely meaning that it will take seven-years to complete the peace process. The dividing of Jerusalem will probably be the final jewel of the plan.
