Folks, we’ve entered a new stage here: Important Update on Arab-Israeli Peace Initiative

separate articleOk, guys, listen up! Remember I told you that the current revived Arab-Israeli Peace initiative is essentially the return to the basics of actually implementing the Oslo accords?

The Paris Peace Summit is complete.

This is a Times of Israel posting of the communiqué in full: of the Paris Summit in which several nations (a covenant with many) have now collectively and officially put Israel on notice.  Neither Israel nor “Palestine” were represented at this conference.  This is the collective “whole world” standing against Israel and making demands.  Israel is now officially that burdensome stone of Zechariah 12. We’ve entered a new stage here!

A half-day international conference in Paris on kick-starting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process ended Friday with a reaffirmation of a “negotiated two-state solution,” the announcement of a planned summit between the two parties by year’s end, and a warning that “the status quo is not sustainable.” ….

“They reaffirmed that a negotiated two-state solution is the only way to achieve an enduring peace, with two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security. They are alarmed that actions on the ground, in particular continued acts of violence and ongoing settlement activity, are dangerously imperiling the prospects for a two-state solution

“The Participants underscored that the status quo is not sustainable, and stressed the importance of both sides demonstrating, with policies and actions, a genuine commitment to the two-state solution in order to rebuild trust and create the conditions for fully ending the Israeli occupation that began in 1967 and resolving all permanent status issues through direct negotiations based on resolutions 242 (1967), 338 (1973), and also recalling relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions and highlighting the importance of the implementation of the Arab Peace Initiative.

“The Participants discussed possible ways in which the international community could help advance the prospects for peace, including by providing meaningful incentives to the parties to make peace. The Participants also highlighted the potential for regional peace and security as envisioned by the Arab Peace Initiative.

“The Participants highlighted the key role of the Quartet and key regional stakeholders. They welcomed the interested countries’ offer to contribute to this effort. They also welcomed France’s offer to coordinate it, and the prospect of convening before the end of the year an international conference.” (Times of Israel)

In a separate article,  EU Foreign Policy chief Federica Mogherini stated the following:

“The policy of settlement expansion and demolitions, violence, and incitement tells us very clearly that the perspective that Oslo opened up is seriously at risk of fading away,”
