Meetings of Parliamentary Assembly of Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) meets in Amman

For those students of Bible Prophecy that have been following along since the inception of the UfM, The Union for the Mediterranean,  it's always an interesting watch to see what comes from this Alliance of East and West, Right and Left, 5 + 5 countries when they come together. I have pondered for years whether this could be Daniel 2:42
As you saw the iron mixed with soft clay, so they will mix with one another in marriage, but they will not hold together, just as iron does not mix with clay.

Are we looking at the Ten Toes?

Daniel Interprets the Dream
41"In that you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter's clay and partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom; but it will have in it the toughness of iron, inasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with common clay. 42"As the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of pottery, so some of the kingdom will be strong and part of it will be brittle. 43"And in that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine with one another in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, even as iron does not combine with pottery.…

-Meetings of the Parliamentary Assembly of Union for the Mediterranean (PA-UfM) Bureau and enlarged Bureau meetings started in Amman on Saturday;

The meetings were chaired by PA-UfM President and Speaker of the Lower House of Parliament, Atef Tarawneh.

Tarawneh highlighted the importance of cooperation and coordination among the UfM's member countries on various parliamentary issues with the aim of enhancing the role of Parliaments in boosting bilateral ties, and supporting issues related to human rights, democracy, women as well as regional and international security and stability.

He said the Middle East peace process is passing through a critical stage that requires concerted regional and international efforts to find a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue, urging Israel to seriously deal with this issue.

Tarawneh suggested that Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs Nasser Judeh and an official from the UNHCR be invited to address the General Assembly to talks about the developments in the region and the efforts to solve the crisis in Syria and end bloodshed in that country.

The Speaker also talked about the burden being shouldered by Jordan as a result of the continuous influx of Syrian refugees into the Kingdom due to the current violence in Syria.

Participants urged the international community to support Jordan to enable it to continue playing its humanitarian role towards the Syrian refugees.

During today's meetings, the Bureau adopted issues raised in the agenda, including a memo regarding its meeting held in Amman last June, preparations for another meeting that will be held at the Dead Sea next February besides adopting a draft declaration on the political committee on Syria as well as other issues of concern to the UfM.
