In interesting turns of events, nations seem to be hesitant to commit to the proclamation made following the Middle East Peace Conference held yesterday in Paris. As reported earlier, nothing new came of the conference, and the main point was to encourage Israel and the Palestinians to recommit to negotiations.
Today, Britain and some Balkan states blocked the passage of the Paris Declaration in the European Union! In fact, an official in the British Foreign Office said:
“We have particular reservations about an international conference intended to advance peace between the parties that does not involve them – indeed which is taking place against the wishes of the Israelis – and is taking place just days before the transition to a new American president when the US will be the ultimate guarantor of any agreement.”
The peace conference is indeed becoming “much ado about nothing.” It is also thought that the UN may well produce no further anti-Israel resolutions tomorrow.
Indeed, the Lord has heard our prayers, and seems to be showing international favor toward Israel at the moment.
The days ahead are critical. Continue to pray that silence will be the order of the day in the UN and other international bodies, and that the presidential transition in America will be celebratory rather than contentious. Please pray for our new administration. While I am hopeful that the Trump team seems to be saying all the right things in regard to Israel, saying and doing are two very different things. We bless Israel when we pray for Israel. Let’s continue to do so as our new president and his administration take office. May the US once again become a faithful friend of Israel!
