The announcement came as Israeli flag carrier El Al Israel Airlines Ltd prepared to operate the country’s first direct flight between Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport and the UAE’s capital, Abu Dhabi.
The Abraham Accord brokered by Jared Kushner and the Trump administration represents a gigantic financial windfall for both Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and that is certainly a great starting point towards Middle East peace. But it’s going to take more than money to get things to the level of the Daniel 9 covenant, it’s going to take the rebuilt Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27 (KJB)
I was told about two and a half years ago, from a ‘fixer’ with connections to the Trump administration, that there were things planned regarding Israel that would ‘blow my mind’. I asked my source if that had anything to do with Jerusalem and the Temple, and they confirmed that to be the case. Jared Kushner two weeks ago seemed to confirm some along those lines when he said that the Abraham Accord was just the beginning of things in discussion for Israel and the Middle East, and that’s exactly how I see it. It’s not the main course, as exciting as it is, it is only the end times appetizer.
UAE cancels Israel boycott, allows economic agreements
FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The president of the United Arab Emirates scrapped an economic boycott against Israel, allowing trade and financial agreements between the countries in another key step towards normal ties, the UAE’s state news agency reported on Saturday.
Israel and the UAE said on August 13 they would normalize diplomatic relations in a deal brokered by US President Donald Trump that reshapes the order of Middle East politics from the Palestinian issue to the fight against Iran. President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan issued a decree abolishing a boycott law as part of “the UAE’s efforts to expand diplomatic and commercial cooperation with Israel, leading to bilateral relations by stimulating economic growth and promoting technological innovation,” the WAM news agency said.
The announcement came as Israeli flag carrier El Al Israel Airlines Ltd prepared to operate the country’s first direct flight between Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport and the UAE’s capital, Abu Dhabi. An Israeli government delegation and top aides to Trump, including his senior adviser Jared Kushner, are due to travel on the flight on August 31, a U.S. official said. Before the August 13 deal can be officially signed, details must be agreed on issues such as the opening of embassies, trade and travel links.
Israel’s Channel 13 TV said bilateral trade could initially be worth $4 billion a year, a figure it said could soon be tripled or quadrupled. Government officials did not immediately confirm that estimate. Israeli Agriculture Minister Alon Schuster said Israel was working on potential joint projects that could help improve the oil-rich Gulf nation’s food security, such as water desalination and crop cultivation in the desert.
“With their money and our experience, we could go a long way,” he told Tel Aviv radio station 102 FM in an interview on Friday.
Officials from the two countries recently said they were looking at cooperation in defense, medicine, tourism and technology. The decree announced on Saturday means UAE citizens and businesses will be free to do business with Israel.
The two countries do not yet have official air links, and it was unclear whether Monday’s El Al flight would be able to fly over Saudi Arabia – which has no official ties with Israel – to cut down on flight time. In May, an Etihad Airways plane flew from the UAE to Tel Aviv to deliver supplies to the Palestinians to help fight coronavirus, marking the first known flight by an UAE carrier to Israel. READ MORE
