New York Times – WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday that Israeli and Palestinian negotiators would convene again in the Middle East within two weeks and that their goal would be to work out a comprehensive peace agreement within nine months.

Mr. Kerry described the talks here on Monday and Tuesday as constructive, and said they had involved three-way discussions that included the United States, as well as direct discussions between the Israelis and the Palestinians. He said that the next meeting would mark the beginning of formal negotiations on the major issues, and that it would take place in Israel or the West Bank.

    “For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.”1 Thes.5:3

    A Peace Covenant is a sign of the End Times. Israel becoming a nation in 1948 was a major sign that in this generation (70 years)we would see what was spoken of in Daniel 12; Joel 2; Ezekiel 37, 38 & 39; Isaiah 13, 33, 34 & 66; Zech. 12, 14; and other prophetic scriptures.

    What accompanied Israel’s 1948 and 1967 events? Blood Moons and they all occurred during Holy Days! There are four blood moons coming in 2014 & 2015 in addition to a solar eclipse. Dates: (4/15/14; 10/08/14; 4/04/15; 9/28/15) These occur during Feasts. Rare and NOT A COINCIDENCE! It’s only happened seven times in 2000 years.
    “I looked when He opened the sixth seal and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.” Rev.6:12
    Hold unto your faith!

    This charade is only about the 2014 US elections. Objectively, the Obama administration has failed in its domestic economic policy (jobs) and in its foreign policy. Obama plans for there to be the three month extension and grand announcements before the Nov 2014 general election!

    It clearly appears that Obama represents OPEC, so bet all your money that Obama will accept a position representing an OPEC country as soon as possible after (if) he leaves office in 2017…Saudi does not want Keystone and Canada is one of the few allies that Obama has yet to screw royally; so no Keystone, North American energy independent, pipeline…Sorry Canada, but your in good company!

  • You peoples don’t have “9 months”, fool me once that’s on me, fool me twice that’s also on me, 3 strikes I’ll be out, but you know that can never happen, for we’re not playing a game. Make Peace so we can go to the next phase of our human development.

    Netanyahu must have a sore arm from the twisting it got by Sec. Kerry and likely from BO himself.
    In the world of “shotgun weddings” this is one of the best: neither party wants to be there, neither party expects any real results, but the show must go on.

    In the face of almost 70 years of real history, how can the world expect to see any true progress? Kerry has put his prestige and that of the USA smack on the line. He’s likely to be disappointed.
