CMN – [Editor’s Note: The US continues to attempt to forge a treaty between the Palestinians and Israel in an effort to defuse potential Palestinian participation in the inevitable clash with Iran – and Syria. These conflicts are “inevitable” because the Scriptures predict the destruction of Damascus and Iran (Persia in the Gog-Magog accounts). It’s interesting to note that Egypt is a participant in the talks, yet Egypt is conspicuously absent from the assembly of nations documented in Ezekiel’s famous prophecy. An outline of these events is found in our CD set Gog And Magog LINK.]
Egypt’s foreign minister: Middle East talks still lack ‘necessary breakthrough’
RAMALLAH, WEST BANK — US efforts to restart Mideast peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have not produced results so far, the Egyptian foreign minister said Thursday, less than two weeks before a key Arab decision on whether to halt the negotiations . . .

Abu al-Gheit said Netanyahu’s national security adviser, Uzi Arad, recently held talks with Egyptian officials. “During the meeting, Egypt confirmed its … support for the Palestinian demand,” Abu al-Gheit told the news conference . . . The 22-member Arab League has given Obama until the second week of November to broker a compromise that will enable the peace talks to resume. Arab League foreign ministers are to meet at that time to discuss the state of negotiations and possible alternatives if the standoff continues.
Bad Driver? … In Debt? … Proposed New York City Law Would Ban You From Owning a Gun

Under proposed revisions to the police department’s handgun, rifle and shotgun permit procedures, the NYPD can reject gun license applicants for a number of reasons, including: If they have been arrested or convicted of almost any “violation,” in any state; having a “poor driving history”; having been fired for “circumstances that demonstrate lack of good judgment”; having “failed to pay legally required debts”; being deemed to lack “good moral character”; or if any other information demonstrates “other good cause for the denial of the permit.” …
