It looks like the so-called "peace talks", which were slated to begin soon, are already "off" due to Israel announcing plans to build in East Jerusalem:
"PA: Peace talks off until East Jerusalem housing shelved"
"Arab League chief says Mideast talks off"
"Arab League chief Amr Moussa said on Wednesday that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had told him he would not enter indirect talks with Israel, only days after the Palestinian side had agreed to the contacts."
"The decision came after Israel announced on Tuesday it would erect 1,600 settler homes in an area of the occupied West Bank it annexed to Jerusalem. Abbas had only agreed to the talks on condition that Israel imposed a Jewish settlement freeze."
"The 1,600 homes will be built in Ramat Shlomo, an ultra-Orthodox
neighborhood in northern Jerusalem, near the Palestinian village of
"The neighborhood lies within the municipal boundaries drawn up by Israel after it annexed East Jerusalem following its capture in the 1967 Middle East War."
So what are we seeing here?
Once again, as biblical prophecy would dictate, the entire Middle East peace process has been abruptly halted because of the status of Jerusalem...A burdensome stone indeed.

“Those who say we flustered [U.S. Vice President Joseph] Biden by building in Jerusalem do not understand that Jerusalem is ours,” says Minister of Diaspora Affairs Yuli Edelstein.
"Edelstein, whose ministerial responsibilities also extend to hasbarah, or Israel advocacy, told Arutz-7, “People who feel we embarrassed Biden don’t understand our rights to Jerusalem. If someone thinks that in the framework of peace talks we will agree to split Jerusalem, he is mistaken. And whoever thinks that we will not build in neighborhoods such as Ramot and Gilo is similarly mistaken.”
"If the East Jerusalem construction plans are implemented, they will make it impossible to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, said an activist of the left-wing Ir Amim non-governmental organization."
"Taken together, the East Jerusalem construction "will move Israel beyond the point of no return, as far as an agreed solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is concerned," she said."
Again, we see Jerusalem as an "immovable rock" for "all the nations" (Zechariah 12:3), just as prophecy foretold. And these words (lets not forget) were written approximately 2,500 years ago. Once again, revealing the highly literal and accurate nature of biblical prophecy.
And on cue, one of the Gog-MaGog coalition members weighs in:
"Turkey slams Israel settlement plan"
Who would have guessed? (well, Ezekiel would have...but we already know that)
Things in the Middle East are shaping up exactly as biblical prophecy informs us - in a highly literal and specific way. That is why we interpret prophecy in this way - because over and over and over again, in the past, prophecy unfolded (and continues to do so) precisely as predicted. This applies to the events that we watch daily in the Middle East (just the most recent examples) - and it also applies to the various signs that indicate we are in the very last days of this generation.
The concluding events described in biblical prophecy are coming to the world, and coming soon.
