President Shimon Peres said Thursday that in 1996 he agreed to meet with former Syrian President Hafez Assad to negotiate a peace deal between the two countries but the Syrian leader refused to set a date for the meeting.
Peres added that Syria and Lebanon must choose between Iranian ambitions and a peaceful Middle East.
Speaking during an official ceremony commemorating fallen pre-state leader Joseph Trumpeldor, Peres said that in 1996, “following the assassination of [former Prime Minister] Yitzhak Rabin, the Americans communicated a message from Assad senior, in which he expressed his desire to renew peace efforts.”
“I answered that I was willing to negotiate,” Peres said, reminding Assad of the fact that “Israel was months away from an election. The agreement would have to be reached before the elections.”
The Holy Word of God speaks of a false peace that will arrive with the Anti-Christ.
He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing [of the temple] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”
But it bears repeating, that it will be a false peace. Israel will not know true peace until Jesus Christ comes, and punishes those who are against Israel, and those who have not accepted Our King as their Savior.
At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
