Both of Israel's main political parties, the rightist Likud and leftist Labor, find themselves in complete agreement that a two-state solution with the "Palestinians" is not attainable. This major political shift has come about through the rank and file members of the Labor Party, led by Yaacov Herzog, voting to change a longstanding platform of the party from one of being a solid backer of negotiating a "Two State Solution" to one of near total disengagement from negotiations with the PA because, as Herzog put it, "Israel is at war."
At a time when the political left in the United States remains in total denial regarding the truth and costs of negotiating and cooperating with Islamic jihadists, the political left in Israel has finally seen, albeit belatedly, that the daily death toll of Jewish Israeli citizens at the hands of knife-wielding Arab Islamists is no longer a cost it is willing to bear politically.
The State of Israel now has the requisite political unity based upon the fact that the nation is at war and that the war must be fought and won before any further negotiations with the enemy can become a worthwhile endeavor. It is the belief of this Eschatology Today blog that a political realization of this exact kind is the first and most basic necessity for the prophecy of the whole Psalm 83 scenario to begin an approach its final fulfillment.
03 February 2016: The fourth sentence of the Trilateral Declaration can been seen as the enlargement clause through which other Mediterranean nations can join these three nations: "Our partnership is not exclusive in design or nature, and we are ready to welcome other like-minded actors to join our efforts to promote coordination and cooperation, as well as regional peace and stability." Also of significant importance are the following sentences.
"We remain steadfastly committed to working together towards the enhancement of the bilateral relations between the European Union and Israel in areas of mutual interest and concern.
We stress the importance of the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation for the countries of the region. On the occasion of the 21st anniversary of the Barcelona Declaration, we welcome the role the Union for the Mediterranean can play to this end, as reflected in the EU Joint Communication on the Review of the European Neighborhood Policy of 18th November 2015."
The Trilateral Declaration, as an instrument of international relations in unity of purpose for the 21st century, is unique in that nowhere within any of its paragraphs is there any reference to the United States of America. The next Trilateral Summit will be held in Israel during the latter half of this year.
31 January 2016: This is another very important SITREP, having what I believe will be monumental prophetic repercussions in the Middle East and for the world at-large. Better late than never, I've been chomping at the bit to get this posted for three days now, but waited for any further important developments to become known before doing so.
