U.S. official: We want full peace deal in 1 year

YnetNews.com reports: “A partial peace deal between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, even if achieved within a year, will not satisfy Washington, a US official said.

The American official told reporters in Jerusalem that the upcoming peace summit in Washington aims to strike a full peace agreement between the parties. The official rejected the possibility of ‘only’ a partial or interim peace deal within the timeframe set for the peace talks.

While the difficulties both parties face are clear, Washington believes that both leaders are ready to confront the difficulties in order to reach peace, he said, adding that the US intends to take an active role in the negotiations.

The American official stressed that Washington’s stance on the settlement freeze has not changes, saying that the negotiations must be held in a positive atmosphere.

The US, he added, is currently speaking with both sides in an attempt to explore ways conducive to the talks’ success…” (If this peace deal is contracted, it will only last for 42 months if it’s the Biblical plan according to Daniel 9:27; Jeremiah 6:14, 8:11; I Thessalonians 5:3. Then it’s broken as Russia moves against Israel – Ezekiel 38:1, 2, 8, 11, and 16. Then after another 42 months Christ appears to stop the blitzkrieg – Revelation 11:18 to set up His kingdom of peace for 1,000 years – Isaiah 2:4 and Micah 4:3. See also the next four reports.)

Obama to Netanyahu, Abbas: Don’t let the chance for peace slip away

Haaretz reports: “U.S. President Barack Obama urged Israeli and Palestinian leaders not to let the chance for peace slip away as he opened a U.S.-sponsored summit to relaunch direct talks shadowed by Middle East violence.

But in the wake of a second West Bank shooting attack against Israelis in as many days and a persistent deadlock over settlements, Obama acknowledged skepticism ‘in some quarters’ about his prospects for succeeding where so many U.S. leaders have failed and said he was under no illusions about the challenges ahead.

Wading into hands-on peacemaking on the eve of restarting face-to-face negotiations after a 20-month hiatus, Obama brought both sides together for ceremonial handshakes at the White House and a commitment to try to forge within a year a deal on Palestinian statehood.

‘As I told each of them today, this moment of opportunity may not soon come again. They cannot afford to let it slip away,’ Obama said after one-on-one talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Speaking ahead of a working dinner at the White House, Netanyahu said that he had come to the Washington peace summit that ‘to figure out a historic compromise’ with the Palestinians.

The dinner included Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Jordanian King Abdullah II, the Quartet’s envoy to the Middle East Tony Blair, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Netanyahu…” (If Obama becomes the leader of the New World Order as Dr. Henry Kissinger proposes and promotes, the last chance for peace will fail because it’s a covenant of death and hell – Isaiah 28:15, and predicted to fail – Jeremiah 6:14 and 8:11.)
