Peace Covenant That Could Shock The World Coming Soon?

Will a "peace covenant" soon be announced that will permanently alter world history in a major way?  For months, Israel and Saudi Arabia have been quietly negotiating a deal that would normalize relations between the two nations.  But they aren't the only parties involved.  Israel and Saudi Arabia both want formal security agreements with the United States as part of any agreement.  

In other words, if either of those two nations get attacked, the U.S. military would be required to intervene.  The Saudis also want to develop a nuclear power program, and they want U.S. assistance with that.  But the biggest barrier to a deal was always going to be the Palestinians.  

The Saudis are insisting that any agreement must include major concessions from both the U.S. and the Israelis.  And the Palestinians are publicly making it known that they will not accept any outcome that does not involve formal U.S. recognition of Palestinian statehood at the United Nations.  At one time, such a demand would have killed negotiations, but apparently the Biden administration is very open to making such a move.
 
So much could change during the course of negotiations, and there is still a long way to go.

And if an agreement can be reached, it probably will not happen until 2024 at the earliest but you can be sure President Biden would love to promote himself as the man who brought "peace to the Middle East".


But at this moment it appears that something will actually happen.  In fact, on Friday National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told the press that "a basic framework" for an agreement has been "hammered out"...

"All sides have hammered out, I think, a basic framework for what, you know, what we might be able to drive at," National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters.

"But, as in any complex arrangement, as this will inevitably be, everybody is going to have to do something. And everybody is going to have to compromise on some things," Kirby said.

I was absolutely floored when I first saw that.

After all these years, the sort of Middle East peace agreement that we have been anticipating could actually come to fruition.

But the Palestinians must be willing to accept the deal, and right now they are playing hardball.  It is being reported that the Palestinians are demanding the transfer of territory in the West Bank from Israel and "recognition of Palestinian statehood at the United Nations" from the United States...

Last month, a US official, a PA official and a senior Arab diplomat told The Times of Israel that Ramallah is seeking "irreversible" steps that will advance its bid for statehood in the context of the US-brokered Saudi-Israeli normalization talks.

Those officials said the PA proposals have included US backing for recognition of Palestinian statehood at the United Nations, the US reopening its consulate in Jerusalem that historically served Palestinians, the scrapping of congressional legislation characterizing the PLO as a terror organization, the transfer of West Bank territory from Israeli to Palestinian control, and the demolition of illegal outposts in the West Bank.

Will Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be willing to give up the territory that the Palestinians are asking for?

And will the Biden administration shock the world by formally recognizing a Palestinian state at the United Nations?

If those two things actually happen, it will have enormous implications for all of us.


A year ago, it seemed impossible that such a comprehensive agreement could happen before the next presidential election in the United States.

But now leaders on all sides seem optimistic.

For example, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman recently told Fox News that an agreement is getting "closer" with each passing day...

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) said that his country was moving "closer" each day toward reaching a normalization deal with Israel, the first time he has publicly acknowledged the process.

"Every day we get closer" to reaching an agreement, the 38-year-old heir to the Saudi throne told Fox News in an interview that aired Wednesday. "It seems it's for the first time a real one, serious. We're gonna see how it goes."

And during a speech to the UN General Assembly on September 22nd, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu definitely sounded like a man that is ready to make a deal...

In an address to the United Nations General Assembly on September 22, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel was "at the cusp" of a transformative peace agreement with Saudi Arabia. "Such a peace will go a long way to ending the Arab-Israeli conflict," said Netanyahu. "It will encourage other Arab states to normalize their relations with Israel. It will enhance the prospects of peace with the Palestinians. It will encourage a broader reconciliation between Judaism and Islam, between Jerusalem and Mecca, between the descendants of Isaac and the descendants of Ishmael."

Of course there are many in Netanyahu's coalition that would not welcome such an agreement, especially if it means giving up land in the West Bank.


But would their minds change if the agreement also made it possible to start rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem?

This has been a dream of Jewish religious leaders for decades, and so making their dream a reality may be enough to get them to agree to a deal that formally divides the West Bank.

If the Temple is to be rebuilt, the Jewish government will inevitably be heavily involved, and we know that government agencies were already involved in transporting five red heifers to Israel from the state of Texas...

According to Jerusalem-focused non-profit Ir Amim, the Israeli government authorities helped the temple mount activist group, the Temple Institute, and Boneh Israel, an Evangelical organization, import five cows from the United States last year to be used for the red heifer sacrifice.

The Ministry of Agriculture allegedly assisted in bypassing standard regulations in order to import the live cows from the U.S., which is prohibited. In a press release, Boneh Israel and the Temple Institute claim they received permission to import the cows through the Ministry of Agriculture.

The Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage also assisted in the project. The Ministry's Director General, Netanel Isaac, disclosed in a speech at the cows' welcome ceremony in September 2022 that the agency has been funding the development of the Mount of Olives area where Temple Mount activists plan to initiate the red heifer ritual sacrifice.

So much is happening right now, and the days ahead are likely to be filled with lots of twists and turns.

All sides seem pretty determined to make an agreement happen, and once it is signed our world will never be the same again.
