Several events are pointing to a concerted effort for a “peace deal” in the Middle East:

Brazil Wants Bigger Role for Itself and IBSA on Middle East Talks

Alexandra Rocha, 18 April 2010

Celso Amorim, Brazil’s Foreign minister, said in Brasília that greater participation of the countries of the IBSA, the group that includes India, Brazil and South Africa, in the peace talks between Israel and Palestine is urgent.  http://www.brazzilmag.com/component/content/article/84-april-2010/12116-brazil-wants-bigger-role-for-itself-and-ibsa-on-middle-east-talks.html

Brazil is apparently signaling the world that it intends to be a major player on the world scene.  However, notice that because it is in the EU, Syria believes that Bulgaria has an important role:

Syria President: Bulgaria Can Play Key Role in Middle East Peace Process

Diplomacy | April 25, 2010

As a member of the EU, Bulgaria has an extremely important role to play in the resolving of the Middle East conflict, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad told a Bulgarian delegation.  http://www.novinite.com/view_news.php?id=115591

And biblically, it is clear that the nations that will support the upcoming “king of the North” will confirm a peace deal.  Whether it comes from the EU or not.

Furthermore, notice that Spain expects Israel to listen to Europe since it is supposed to be part of the Union for the Mediterranean States:

Spain urges Israel to support Mediterranean Union

(AFP) – April 23, 2010

MADRID — Spain called on Israel Thursday to support the nascent Mediterranean Union as well as efforts to reach peace in the Middle East during a visit to Madrid by Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos asked Lieberman “for Israel’s full cooperation with the Mediterranean Union, which is of maximum interest to Spain and all of its Euro-Mediterranean partners,” the foreign ministry said in a statement…

The 43-nation Mediterranean Union, whose headquarters is in Barcelona, was established in 2008 in Paris by France and Egypt.

It groups all 27 EU member states with countries in North Africa, the Balkans, the Arab world as well as Israel in a bid to foster cooperation in one of the world’s most volatile regions.  http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5gKmbGez0t_i2E8LjaKJVe6he-M_A

Is Europe the KEY to Middle East Peace? In a recent EU Observer opinion article, a former Middle East representative to the World Council of Churches urged Europe to take a greater role in the Middle East peace process. In his article, Ghassan Rubeiz pointed to Israel’s need for security and the Palestinian need for freedom, and how a European military/police presence in the Holy Land could be the key to making both parties happy. The EU already plays a role in Lebanon and on the Egyptian border, and an increased presence in the Palestinian territories would not be overly difficult to envision (EU Observer, February 17, 2010). God indicates that, for a time, Assyria (Germany) will participate in a peace deal with many Middle Eastern nations (Psalm 83:5-8). Daniel 9 also indicates that a temporary peace treaty will occur between the kings of the north and south, prior to the 3.5-year “times of the Gentiles” spoken of by Christ (Luke 21:24) – a time when the Beast will likely control Jerusalem. At that time, the king of the north will break the peace treaty he was instrumental in creating…

We are getting close to the time of this peace deal.

Although he has several events out of sequence in his book, even the famed Protestant theologian John Walvoord understood the importance of the deal in Daniel 9:27:

The final revelation in Daniel 9:27 states, “He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven,’ but in the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to the sacrifice and offering…”…the covenant of Daniel 9:27 is not the covenant of grace…this refers to the coming world ruler at the beginning of the last seven years…He will make a covenant with Israel for a seven-year period. As Daniel 9:27 indicates, in the middle of the seven years he will break the covenant, stop the sacrifices offered…and become their persecutor instead of their protector

The seven-year peace treaty with Israel; consumated seven years before the second coming of Christ (Dan. 9:27; Revelation 19:11-16). (Walvoord J. The Prophecy Knowledge Handbook. Victor Books, 1990, pp. 256,257,551)

This deal could be in place as early as this coming Fall (see EU Peace Deal this Autumn?), but even if it takes another year or two, time is getting short.
