The Sake Of Talking
"Signs of oil" are discovered on the Syrian track every few years, and the scenario rarely changes. The Syrian ruler speaks of his desire for peace talks, Israeli intelligence concludes that "this time he is serious," mysterious emissaries visit Damascus and transmit secret messages to Jerusalem. The adventure always ends in failure, but it provides interest and employment for prime ministers, advisors, intelligence analysts and journalists, all of whom are tired of the frustrating Palestinian issue.
Syria is trying to get Israel to come back to the negotiations table. In fact, they proposed the idea of a nuclear free Middle East. Israeli Prime Minister Sharon thinks it's a trick to get the U.S. off their scent. It probably is, but that's not what caught my attention.
There seems to be a planned effort by the Arab world to put pressure on Israel to disarm. Don't be surprised if more Arab countries agree to have their weapons program monitored. I really believe they feel this is their only chance to destroy Israel.
Personally, I don't see Israel giving into Arab pressure, but if the U.S. or E.U. embrace the idea that would force Israel to make a very difficult decision...comply or go it alone.
I think it will come down to Israel and the Arab world making a joint treaty (Daniel 9:27) with the E.U. that will include land concessions, the creation of a Palestinian state, and the entire Middle East agreeing to disarm with monitoring from a third party. In exchange Israel will be welcomed into the world community both financially and politically. They will be able to rebuild their temple and will receive protection from the E.U. and U.S. I also believe that the European Union will promise them full membership in seven years if all goes well with their neighbors.
I have to say that 2004 looks to be a very interesting year in prophecy. Will the first wave of the E.U. be reduced to ten nations? Who will their first president be? Will the U.S. and E.U. push Israel to make concessions so that the roadmap will stay on schedule to establish a Palestinian state by the year 2005? Will this be the year that the antichrist confirms a covenant with many?
Only time will tell!
