|The European Council officially accepted Spain, France and Italy's Middle East peace plan yesterday morning, and will formally endorse it today. The peace plan calls for a ceasefire to be enforced between Israel and the Palestinian terrorist organizations, the release of Palestinian prisoners and Israeli captives, the formation of a Palestinian unity government, direct talks between Prime Minister Olmert and President Abbas and EU troops to monitor the ceasefire. The European Union also urged Syria to play a more constructive roll in the region. |
Quote: "The 25 foreign ministers reaffirmed the initiative Thursday and leaders from the 25 EU nations will formally endorse it Friday.
This is big news folks, for to me it now becomes clear how a peace treaty in the Middle East could be adopted, and then later confirmed by the leader of the European Union - currently Javier Solana, the High Representative for the European Common, Foreign and Security Policy. I don't know whether this peace initiative will be the one the Antichrist will confirm, but it certainly involves the right nations according to Daniel's prophecy.
Meanwhile in light of the previous article on Israel's nuclear weapons, Javier Solana has reaffirmed the EU's policy that the Middle East region should be made a nuclear-free zone.
Quote: "In response to a question whether the E.U. would take action against Israel over the nuclear issue, Solana noted that Olmert had issued a denial. "The position of the European Union is very clear," Solana said. "In the long term we don't want to have the Middle East with weapons of mass destruction."
Former British Foreign Minister Jack Straw caused anger and outrage last year, when he announced on Channel 4 news that he believed Israel and Iran constituted potential threats to Middle East peace, and that both must be disarmed. This is still the view of the current British Foreign Office. Disarming Israel, many believe, would be the equivalent of state-suicide for Israel, with Arabs outnumbering Israelis 100-1. It is also believed the nation of Israel would be virtually indefensible with 1967 borders and no nuclear weapons.
