The European Union is planning to send its two foreign relations ministers to Egypt for talks on the continuing Middle East conflict. EU External Foreign Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner is due in Cairo at the end of the month, while the EU High Representative for the European Common, Foreign and Security Policy will visit the country on an undisclosed date. EU Commissioners had announced not so long ago that the EU would strengthen Solana's hand in regards to the situation in the Middle East. After the conflict between Israel and Hizbullah, Solana complained that he had not been given a clear mandate to work towards peace, due to the interference of national foreign policies in the region. Perhaps this time he will be given more room to work.

Quote: "Asked about the possibility that the U.S. would abandon its main role in the peace process which will be taken over by the EU, Ebermann said the U.S. is focusing on Iraq and would welcome any move to revitalize the peace process.

But it looks like Solana's hand has not yet been strengthened, and perhaps that is the reason for this two-headed approach (Benita and Javier) to the peace process. In regards to the above statement, we have been saying for a long time now that any US initiative regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will ultimately fail, because the Antichrist will according to Daniel's prophecy, be the prince (word for a ruler) of the Revived Roman Empire.

As Christians we often exclaim our support for Israel and the Jewish people, but we should always remember there are many Arab people who are Christians, even former Palestinian terrorists, who have made the God of Israel, Yeshua HaMashiach, their God too. Man will attempt to solve the problems in the Middle East but ultimately they will fail. Why? Because they are trying to solve a spiritual battle that has been waged for over 4000 years. You can't solve spiritual battles by physical means. When the Lord Jesus Christ returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom, the Palestinians will have justice. They won't have a state, but they will live with their Israeli cousins in peace in the Holy Land...

Zephaniah 3:12 
I will also leave in the midst of thee (Israel) an afflicted and poor people (Palestinians?), and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.
