The War in Gaza is now in its fourth day with no end in sight. Today in Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, “Israel has committed war crimes in Gaza which will lead to definite annihilation of the regime.” Of course it doesn’t matter that Hamas has launched hundreds if not thousands of rockets into Israel over the years with Israel doing nothing in return. In doing so, they have created an atmosphere of terror in the border town of Sderot, so much so that ten year olds are wetting themselves in bed at night. According to reports, the children who attend schools in Sderot have about 15 seconds to get into shelters when the air-raid sirens go off. And let’s not forget the hostage situation in which Hamas has held an Israeli soldier captive for months. It’s important to remember that both Hamas and Hezbollah have declared that they will never recognize the state of Israel. Both Hamas & Hezbollah are funded and armed by Iran. Iran is the second country that is named in the Ezekiel prophecy. Are we looking at the beginning of that prophecy being fulfilled?
Someone posted that the Palestinians deserve a homeland. I would point out that the entire region was at one time under the Ottoman Empire and when Germany lost, the old Ottoman Empire went down with it. The countries of Iraq, Syria, Trans-Jordan and Israel were created. The Jews were actually given more land then they have at the present time, but some of it was taken away from them. There is no such ethnic group as a Palestinian. There is no Palestinian language, culture, or any other distinction that would define this group as being different from the rest of the Arab world. A case could be made that the population of Jordan, which is over 75% ‘Palestinian,’ is, in fact, the Palestinian homeland.
While proponents of the two state solution tell us that land for peace will work, all we have to do is look at the present situation to see what a farce this is. Israel gave back Gaza several years ago and within 24 hours the mortar fire started across the border and has not stopped since. Land for peace will not work. The vitriol and hatred toward Israel is off the charts, in that Iran, Hezbollah & Hamas want the destruction of Israel. They also use the word holocaust and direct it toward Israel, when any of their soldiers are killed. This use of the word is both insulting and pejorative, in that it demeans the real horrors of WWII and what the Nazi’s did to the Jews. As we see the saber rattling intensify and with Israel about to launch a full ground invasion of Gaza, the question remains, will we see Iran and Hezbollah join the fray? Will the Russians agree to assist them? Is this the hook in the jaw that Ezekiel tells us will happen. I’ll be posting throughout the day, so keep checking back.
May I suggest you purchase a copy of Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural which has an in depth overview of what may be the coming all out war in the Middle East.
