America Races Into Prophetic Warnings of Destruction; Russia Accelerates the Times
As the White House is pressuring Israel to give up its traditional lands of Judea and Samaria, a ribbon of land cutting across Israel connecting them with Gaza, and East Jerusalem as a national capital to the Palestinian Authority, Russia and North Korea are working to arm Iran and its vassal state Syria with weapons of mass destruction. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev met with the Hamas terrorist leader Khaled Meshal and Syrian president Bashar Assad in Damascus to discuss Russia's involvement with the terrorists and the terrorist sponsoring Syrian leader to open the doors to more political cooperation as well as to the possibilities of providing nuclear power to Syria as Russia has done with Iran.
At the same time, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that North Korea is supplying Syria, Hamas and another terrorist group, Hezbollah, with weapons of mass destruction. AFP reported that Lieberman said, "The cooperation between Syria and North Korea is not focused on economic development and growth but rather on weapons of mass destruction." AFP reported that Lieberman said Syria intended to pass the weapons on to the Lebanese Hezbollah militia and to the Islamic Hamas movement, which rules Gaza and has its political headquarters in Damascus, Syria. Iran and Syria are encircling Israel with the help of Russia, North Korea and China.
Analyst Daniel Greenfield wrote for the Israel Insider, "Like Carter before him, [sic] the president has chosen to cut backdoor deals with the Mullahs in Iran, offering them power over Iraq and Afghanistan, in exchange for quieting things down enough to let him hang up a Mission Accomplished banner and pull the troops out. "Peace with honor", preferably before the next election. The rape law for Shiites in Afghanistan, the push for a US funded Hamas/Fatah Unity government in the territories and the rising expansion of the Taliban are all fruits of this arrangement. If Iran is to be our new best friend under this arrangement, Israel is to be our new best enemy."
There are many who do not believe the Zechariah 12:3 prophecy that all who burden themselves with Jerusalem "will be cut in pieces, though all the people of earth be gathered against it." Throughout the Old Testament, the Lord God gave his people ample opportunity to turn from their worldly, wicked and pagan ways to avoid judgment. All the while, things worsened in hope that they would turn back to Him. Look at America--on the brink of financial ruin due to politicians spending money they don't have; Islamic terrorists attacking from within; natural and manmade disasters cost trillions. All the while America's leadership races headstrong into the prophetic warnings of destruction.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
