"Confirming what covenant?"

Food for thought.....
If the covenant in Daniel 9:27 is broken by the "abomonation of desolation of a Jewish Temple, wouldn't that mean
that there will be provisions for a temple in the covenant itself?  The current "piece plan" has no such provision.
Even if the world suceeds in signing or confirming the current plan for peace and adds a provision for a temple,
will it be the covenant of Daniel 9:27?  What would it take for the world, especially the Arab world, to allow
Israel to build a temple?
After the Psalm 83 War will the current "piece" plan for a Palestinian state even be viable?  A parallel passage
in Obadiah verse 18 shows that there will be no survivors left of the house of Esau, which in Psalm 83 are the
tents of Edom, thought by many to be the Palestinians of today (Bill Salus makes a great argument in favor
of this view in his "Isralestine" book).  
Parallel scriptures to the Psalm 83 war show that Israel's borders will expand after that war as I show here:
This border expansion described in Jeremiah 49:1-2, Obadiah 1:19-21 and Zephaniah 2:9 appears to be close,
if not the same as what God promised Abraham in the covenant described here (see map in link above):
Genesis 15:18-21 On the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying:
"To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the
River Euphrates- the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites,
the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."
So the question is, how can the current "piece" plan hold together to the middle of the Tribulation with Israel
expanding her boarders and annihilating the Palestinians?  I believe, instead,  there will be a confirming of the
Abrahamic land covenant after the Psalm 83 war.
Here are some more thoughts about the covenant of Daniel 9:27
