Palestinian leader insists on settlement halt for Israel talks
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas at an Arab summit on Saturday ruled out US-brokered indirect talks with Israel unless the Jewish state stops building settlements.
"We cannot resume indirect negotiations as long as Israel maintains its settlement policy and the status quo," Abbas said at the opening session of the two-day summit.
His comments came shortly after UN chief Ban Ki-moon urged Arab leaders to help facilitate the indirect "proximity" talks and stressed in a speech at the summit that "Jerusalem's significance to all must be respected, and it should emerge from negotiations as the capital of two states."
Israel angered the world community when it announced plans earlier this year to build 1,600 new homes for Jewish settlers in predominantly Arab east Jerusalem.
So, there you have it for MARCH 27, 2010. What does it mean for the believer in Jesus? If the prophecies of the coming wars of Psalm 82, and Ezekiel 38-39 are this obvious, shouldn't the prophecy of Jesus coming for his Bride be taking our breath away? Work while it is still day. Night is on the way. Unstop your ears and start listening for the trumpet as you share Christ with everyone possible. No matter how much time we might have left (which could be days, months, or years) we must be about our Father's business. Stick with it. Hang in there. We win!
