European Union ‘Warmly’ Welcomes Cease Fire Deal

The European Union “warmly” welcomed the announcement of the 72 hour humanitarian cease fire in Gaza,” according to a statement issued Tuesday from the office of the High Representative.

The statement called on “all parties to respect its terms,” adding, “There must be an immediate end to the loss of civilian lives. The firing of rockets from the Gaza Strip must stop. We commend all efforts, particularly those of Egypt, to broker this deal and hope that this can be extended into a lasting cease fire.

“We call on the parties not to miss this opportunity.

“We reiterate that the European Union stands ready to contribute to a comprehensive and sustainable solution meeting the legitimate security, humanitarian and socioeconomic needs of the Israeli and Palestinian people,” the statement concluded.

    ISRAEL always defers…

    Look no further than the political protrusion of world powers, the UN, and in particular the US, to explain any military ineptness within Israel. While acknowledging Israel’s right to exist, self-condemning American interests insist on tying Israel’s hands (or at least one behind the back) in her need for expansion and defense, and the highly pressurized ‘peace’ initiative is the primary vehicle by which that intrusion is asserted.

    Biblical prophecy reveals that there is coming a leader that will put forth a miraculous plan for world peace, and it is clear to see that even now the world is readying itself to receive him. He is the beast, the antichrist, who once he has completely deceived the nations into following him, will turn and reek destruction on all who will not bow down to him as god. And even now O Israel, you are coming under his spirit, and falling head long into his plan, as are all the nations.

    Wake up, you who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Adonai is not sparing the land and people of Israel for their sake, but for His holy name’s sake, and for a chosen remnant to go into his millennial kingdom at his return.

    Wake up O remnant, and know that your time is close at hand (JOEL 2 , Zechariah 14 , Ezekiel 36:22)
