JNS.org – The French government’s plan for indirect talks to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be postponed so that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry can participate, French President Francois Hollande told Europe Radio 1 on Tuesday.

France’s meeting of foreign ministers from 20 countries—excluding Israeli and Palestinian leaders—was initially scheduled for May 30 in Paris, but Kerry could not attend on that date due to America’s Memorial Day. Hollande said the meeting would instead occur in the summer.

“This initiative is necessary because if nothing happens, if there is no strong French initiative, then colonization, attacks, terrorist attacks, and several conflicts are going to continue,” Hollande said, adding, “We are going to create, with all actors and neighboring countries, the parameters which will allow Israelis and Palestinians to return to the negotiating table.”

The Palestinian Authority supports the French initiative, while the Israeli government opposes it. After meeting with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “I told him that the only way to advance true peace between us and the Palestinians is via direct negotiations between us and them, without preconditions. Historical experience shows that is how we achieved peace with Egypt and that is how we achieved peace with Jordan. Any other method only pushes peace further away and gives the Palestinians an escape hatch to avoid dealing with the root of the conflict—which is their non-recognition of the State of Israel.”

    Now this sounds exactly like the peace agreement spoken Of by Daniel. This agreement is the precursor the the beginning of the great tribulation. The birth pains climactically are occurring and now the push has begun. This is their last chance to put in place those actions which in their minds will fascillitate the destruction of Israel. All these actions must take place during the Obama reign since he is the finale facilitator for Israel’s demise. Obama is not going to disappear he will chase you to the ends of the earth as pharoe did until he meets his Waterloo at the Red Sea, that would be the sea of red God has planned for his futile attempt to annihilate Israel. A warning to all those that participate with them in this last act of defiance, and that includes America….God is going to crush you….Revelation 18 Awaits America. Let this be a lesson to Russia, China, and all the others who refuse to be drawn into this last act of folly with those who defie Gods will for this planet. Be smart, set on the sidelines, and watch the slaughter begin….protect yourselves defensively because the beast is pursuing you, too.
