Leads Arab Summit
2/9/24 By Tim Buck
Five participating countries aim to raise pressure on Israel for a ceasefire by leveraging their willingness to assist in rebuilding Gaza and to integrate Israel into the region but assistance is contingent on a Palestinian state being immediately advanced by Israel.
Saudi Arabia hosted a summit of foreign ministers from five countries in the region on Thursday in order to advance a united Arab stance regarding the war in Gaza as well as political initiatives for when the fighting ends.
The Arab foreign ministers are slated to discuss efforts to expand pressure for a ceasefire in Gaza, leveraging their willingness to take part in the Gaza Strip’s rehabilitation after the war in addition to further integrating Israel into the region, on the condition that Jerusalem agrees to take steps creating an irreversible pathway to an eventual Palestinian state.
The gathering is the latest example of the united front that Israel’s Arab partners and potential allies are building, one that is increasingly at odds with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, which expects the war to continue for many more months until “total victory” is secured. On the other hand, the grouping of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia is offering Israel a partnership that could be used to more effectively combat Iran, which Netanyahu has long sought.
The meeting — which has not previously been publicized — will also be attended by Hussein al-Sheikh, a top aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas; as Riyadh continues to expand its cooperation with Ramallah, assuaging concerns that Saudi Arabia will abandon the Palestinian cause to boost its regional and global stature.
Joining Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan and Sheikh will be the top diplomats from Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, according to the diplomats.
The summit follows several covert meetings Riyadh organized over the past month for top national security officials from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and the PA.
Is There More To The Colors
Than We Realize?
Horses are frequently used in the book of Revelation to depict warfare (9:9, 17; 19:14,18). The four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in Revelation 6, represent God’s judgment being released on mankind through the Hamas-like military conquests of Antichrist and his crushing Caliphate.
So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
Like Hamas, when the Caliphate rides forth it will be vicious and cruel on the people of Israel. The current Hamas invasion and slaughter of Jews is a foretaste of what’s coming. If Revelation was written today, instead of four horses the Apostle John could be using four colored tanks or four colored F-16’s. The symbolic use of horses is ancient but the colors are modern. A display of God’s foreknowledge and omniscience!
