"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." -Cicero
The above headline speaks volumes to me as I believe this is the new status quo in the Middle East. Jordan gets the gas but not Israel! As of this post the Palestinians are ramping up for a bid for statehood at the U.N. and Israel is now surrounded by nations that are at best unstable. The Arab Spring rages on in Yemen, Syria, Jordan, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia. We see the fruits of this so-called push for democracy by the rise of the Moslem Brotherhood and slogans that are shouted from Tahrir square that say: To Jerusalem we go Martyrs in the millions! It is anything but democracy, it is the nascent beginnings of Sharia law. The Saudi’s are paying off their citizens not to riot! Assad is backed into a corner and as I have mentioned in other posts, I believe he will lash out at Israel. Turkey has moved away from its ties with Israel. In short, Israel stands alone on the world stage. Hugo Chavez, and others tell us that Israel is practicing genocide. The Palestinians demand a homeland, but history is clear, they have a homeland and it is Jordan.
I have been following the developments in the Middle East, since day one of this BLOG and I have to tell you that I have never seen the situation more tenuous than today. At some point a man will come on the scene who will make peace for 3 1/2 years and allow the Jews to build the third temple. The Jews will embrace this man.
There are those of you who disagree with my assessment and that is fine, but let me say that the Bible is clear when it calls the Tribulation, The Time of Jacob’s Trouble! It is called this because it deals with the Jews and their coming back into the land. What we see now is that the stage is set, the hatred of Israel is reaching a feverish pitch. The nations of the world are against her. I believe that there is more to this vitriol and anti-Semitism than meets the eye. Truly the Devil is in the details! This was prophesied thousands of years ago and now we see it flashing before our eyes on the 6-o’clock news.
