Germany is attempting to see if it can assist with a peace deal in the Middle East:
German Foreign Minister To Visit Israel, Gaza
AFP - Nov 5, 2010
BERLIN – German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle is to travel to Israel and the Gaza Strip next week aiming to lend momentum to efforts to relaunch direct peace negotiations, his spokesman said Nov. 5.
Andreas Peschke said that Westerwelle, who is also Germany’s vice chancellor…
“The aim of this fourth visit of the minister to the Middle East is to sound out the prospects for the peace process,” he told a regular government news conference.
“This is a quite critical phase and the minister will work toward a resumption of direct negotiations (between Israelis and Palestinians).” http://www.defensenews.com/story.php?i=4999135&c=MID&s=TOP
As regular readers of this page are aware, I have long stated that the Europeans would be part of a Middle East deal that would fulfill the prophecies in Daniel 9:26-27.
Germany is taking steps along that line.
Furthermore, it likely has the blessing of the Vatican, as the Vatican is pushing for a deal there as well (see Vatican wants peace deal involving Jerusalem).
And while the deal will not happen to be confirmed by the Europeans any earlier than 2011, Germany and others in Europe keep taking steps that suggest that they will fulfill the prophecy in Daniel 9:27:
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.
Events continue to line up with Bible prophecy.
