WHY NOW IS THE TIME FOR ISRAEL TO TRANSFORM TIES WITH THE ARAB WORLD
Could Shimon Peres’s vision of a “New Middle East”—a region of cooperation with peace between Israel and the Arab world—finally have a hope of becoming reality? Looking at the deep malaise in attempts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the chaos that has engulfed Arab states, it may seem further away than ever. But those same challenges are leading an increasing number of Israelis and Arabs to believe that transformative change in Arab-Israel relations may be possible, and it is an opportunity that Britain and other third parties should promote.
When Peres published “The New Middle East” in the heady months after signing the Oslo Accords with the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1993, it was a bold statement. He envisioned a Middle East as a community of nations modelled on the European Union. He proposed a free trade area, with Israel’s future secured through fruitful political and economic relations with the Arab world, a cornerstone of which would be a resolution of the Palestinian issue. It was a vision inseparable from its time, following the end of the Cold War, when neoliberalism, globalization and democratization were widely believed to represent, in Francis Fukuyama’s phrase, the ‘end of history.’
Peres did not resist being branded an optimist and a dreamer—he used these words about himself. Yet his ideas were more rooted in an understanding of reality than that suggests. Peres understood that radical Islam was a major threat to any attempts to democratize Arab societies, and that “economic and social development are the criteria for successful democratization.”

He understood too that a necessary condition for Arab-Israeli peace was that the Arab world should know it could never destroy Israel—a reality he helped create through his pivotal role developing Israel’s military and nuclear capabilities in the state’s early years.
There is already a remarkable New Alliance emerging in the Middle East. This is not a surprise to Bible Students as it is fully expected that Egypt along with the southern Arab Nations will support Israel in the latter days making up the King of the South based on Bible Prophecy.
So this current acticle will one day soon see a movement develop towards PEACE in the Middle East.
According to Bible Prophecy the Biblical King of the South will see an alignment between Egypt with Israel along with the Arab Gulf States who are largely the descendants of Ishmael the son of Abraham by his wife’s maid Hagar (Genesis 16:3). The King of the South will oppose aggression from Russia and the EU. They will be supported by America and Britain.
Yet again we see that current news is portraying movements towards the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible falling into place before our very eyes. See this article to learn more about this and the latter day prophecies of the Bible.

Bible Truth & Prophecy is an exciting on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.
End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.
We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
