Writing on the Wall Concerning the New World Order
From the Book Reckoning of Time
This is the writing on the wall concerning the New World Order: God has numbered your reign, and put an end to it, You have been weighed on the scales, Your reign has been divided.
And this is the writing that was inscribed: MENE, MENE, TEQEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of each word: MENE – Elah has numbered your reign, and put an end to it. TEQEL – You have been weighed on the scales, and found lacking. PERES – Your reign has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. (Dan 5:25-28)
As of 2015, Iranian and Russian troops are moving into Syria. The U.S. troops are already in Turkey and Jordan and heading into the Egyptian Sinai. The E.U. is there, too. Russia has entered into Syria with great strength and might and even China announced that they would follow also. Israel is being surrounded by foreign troops to the north and south. This massing of foreign armies in such a small region as the Middle east will apparently lead to the Third World War and to horrifying spilling of blood.
It really looks like the Gog of Magog invasion is being set just before our eyes.
For look, in those days and at that time, when I turn back the captivity of Yehudah and Yerushalayim, then I shall gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Yehoshaphat. And I shall enter into judgment with them there for My people, My inheritance Israel, whom they have scattered among the gentiles, and they have divided up My land. (Joe 3:1-2)
Writing on the wall concerning Europe
One of the players on the wall is the European Union, represented by France and Britain in the Syrian conflict. The German government approved the consignment of up to 1,200 soldiers and reconnaissance planes to Syria to help in the fight against Islamic State, however, without engaging directly in ground combat. The Western European states have deployed only limited ground forces to fight Islamic State, which is responsible for the majority of the terrorist attacks in Europe. The Europeans, apart from the Americans and Russians, have no desire to fight or put themselves in harmful way; they are there as long as they can maintain the status of a former super power in the region.
France’s plan to use its position at the UN Security Council to bring about the deployment of international monitors to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem has been seen, if implemented, as an interference in the internal affairs of Israel that would end Israeli sovereignty over Judaism’s holiest site and as an act of aggression against Israel.
In fact, France does not really oppose Palestinian terrorism. To the contrary, it facilitates it. Every year, the French government pays millions to Palestinians whose stated goal is to destroy Israel. For instance, between 2010 and 2013, France gave $6.5 million to a consortium of Palestinian NGOs called the NGO Development Center. By paying these groups to carry out these sorts of activities, the French government has made clear that its actual goal is to block all prospects of peace between Israel and the Palestinians. On December 2, 2014, the French parliament recognized the non-existent “State of Palestine.”
While France seek to reward Islamic terrorists on the international stage by helping them to weaken Israel, back home the French government is willing to place its own Jewish community at risk. Since the French Jews are among the top targets for the French jihadists, the government’s policy of refusing to at least acknowledge the Islamic roots of extremism and violence in France is de facto an anti-Jewish policy. As a result and as reciprocal action, France has become a breeding ground for Islamic terrorism which has turned against its patron. What is said about France above is valid for the E.U. as a whole.
The Migration Period, also known as the Barbarian Invasions across Europe between the fourth and ninth centuries, may be repeating itself before our eyes. The Asian peoples invaded, settled in then West Europe, and eroded the Roman Empire from within. Today, another Asian peoples are doing exactly the same: through a massive migration and high birthrate they are conquering the Old Continent from within. The truth of the matter is that they are not coming into Europe to be assimilated but to assimilate. History repeats itself and those who do not learn from it are destined to repeat it. And Europe is not learning. So, something went wrong for the E.U.
The war in Syria has produced some eight million refugees, a third of the country’s original population. More than six million of them have already found refuge in neighboring countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq but also in Egypt and North Africa.
However, the war in Syria is not the only ongoing conflict. The wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the civil war in Libya have displaced millions of people in regions where the E.U. and the UfM sought influence by peaceful economic and political expansion. The wars in Yemen and South Sudan are indeed far away from Europe, but they too contribute to the destabilization of the Middle East and North Africa regions.
What is happening in Syria is nothing like what took place in Libya and Egypt. In Syria, it started as a real popular revolution. In contrast, what happened in Libya and Egypt were coups. It does not seem normal that those dictatorships that have been in place for years fell so quickly. If it were not for Western backing and support from the major powers, some of those Arab tyrants would have been long gone. However, for one reason or the other these regimes had been kept in place but those behind the scene decided that the time has come for them to be replaced with something else.
In his speech in Cairo in June 2009, Obama quoted passages from the Quran and the coups started to unroll as if motivated by his words. Suddenly, the rulers of Libya and Egypt were abandoned (by the West and particularly by U.S.) over night as a part of what appears to be a well designed plan for a destabilization of the region by the world powers.
In Syria, on the other hand, the “revolution” was different. Although it looked like nothing was planned for Syria and the people took their fate in their own hands and rocked the stability of the dictatorship, Syria was strategically crucial to the West. After the fall of Libya under the western influence, Syria is seen as the other piece of the domino which if falls will kick out Russia from the Mediterranean Sea. Russia was and is still the patron of Syria. After Russia lost Libya, by no means it would want to loose another ally like Syria in the Mediterranean region. It is all about the fight between the Trilateral Commission and EuroAsia as to who will have dominance in the Middle East.
What will happen the day after Assad’s regime falls does not really matter to the Bilderberg Group as long as it will hurt Russia’s interests in Syria. Whether Syria will fall into the hands of the radical Islam is of little concern to them.
The truth of the matter is that Libya and Syria were more or less secular civic societies despite of the oppressive regimes or perhaps because of the oppressive regimes. If there is one power in the region that would like to see and will benefit from a religious regime in Syria, it is Turkey.
The Turks dream of reviving the Ottoman Empire of yesteryear. Keep in mind that the Ottoman Empire is the seventh empire in Yochanan’s vision. It seems very probable that in this troubled region there are some who are interested in seeing Syria split into different parts; some who want to take their part of the pie called Syria. And that should not be a surprise in a region in which everyone fights everyone.
On the other hand, while Europe’s population over the past fifty years has grown by about a quarter, from 400 million people in 1960 to around 500 million at the start of this decade, the Middle East’s population has grown fourfold: from 100 million in 1960 to 400 million in 2010. Moreover, European population growth has slowed, and some countries have even recorded negative growth such as Germany and the Eastern European neighbors. And if there is any growth at all, like in France and Great Britain, it is due to the migration from the same regions of the UfM, in order to come to the point that currently the Muslims comprise some ten percent of Europe’s population.
For instance, Germany plans to accept some 800,000 migrants more with which the Muslim population in this country will become six million. This is the same number of perished Jews in WWII by the Nazi Germany. It seems that modern-day Germany has been replacing six million Jews with six million Muslims, the sworn enemy of Israel. Why do we see this trend in Europe? This is why.
Germany, considered the economical backbone of the E.U., is shrinking rapidly, and the trend is expected to get even worse in the coming years. It is estimated that by 2060, there will be only about 68 million to 73 million people in Germany, according to current predictions by the country’s statistical office — compared with about 81 million now. The country’s welfare system — one of the world’s most generous — is increasingly strained because more retirees have to be financed by fewer working-age and tax-generating citizens. Today, there are three working-age Germans per retiree. By 2060, however, that ratio will be less than 2 to 1, according to the European Commission.
The other danger the E.U. will be facing is that of a cultural and religious divide that is being created by the Muslims’ insertion into Europe. Yet, most westerners are unaware that this migration of Muslims is part of Islam which is known as the Islamic doctrine of migration or hijrah. Islam’s expert Robert Spencer writes: “To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act” referring to Quran 4:100.
In support of the notion that the Middle Easterners are coming in Europe to stay is the fact that Gulf States like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, the UAE, Bahrain, and Kuwait that speak the same language, have the same culture and religion have taken no fellow Muslims so far. And these are probably some of the richest countries in the world having sufficient space and monies to accommodate many of the so-called refugees, but they have taken none.
Should the refugees want to escape the Syrian civil war and persecution, they would have found the way to their Muslim neighbors where they could have found identical culture, language, and religion. However, that was not what they were after. Yes, they were accommodated in refuge camps in Turkey and Jordan where they were and are still treated as second class citizens by their Muslim fellows. And from there they are taking “the exodus” to Europe which the present author calls the stealth conquest of the West.
Having said all that, it looks like Europe is heading towards the edge of extinction. The demographic breakdown is so serious and irreversible that Europe has already reached the point of no return, sooner rather than expected.
Another ignored danger coming to Europe is anti-Semitism. All the asylum seekers, being war refugees or economic migrants, as foresaid, come from Muslim countries. They are the same people who chanted “Death to Israel” in their own countries. They have been raised in countries where anti-Semitism is an indoctrination. Hating Jews and desiring the destruction of Israel is a mindset in the Middle East and in Islam. These people are not fleeing Islam; these people are fleeing the Middle East to bring Islam to Europe, and that is a critical difference that cannot be ignored.
And what is being seen now is the same plan of the E.U. to take over the countries of the Middle East and North Africa through the agency of the UfM but this time, what was not considered by the E.U. strategists, is that the immigrants are taking over Europe by the agency of a massive and uncontrollable migration which has caught many in Europe unprepared.
It appears that the refugee crisis in Europe happened overnight and that the on-going Syrian civil war is forcing people out. But what the ordinary Europeans are blind to see is that the vast majority of these people have Islam in common. And what should now be very obvious to the West is that Muslims do not integrate and assimilate in the West at all. Or, probably this is the desired outcome of this process: a change of the fabric of “the good old Europe.”
But, as the present author sees it, the truth is something else. Whatever the original plan of the Bilderberg Group (the image of the beast) was, what is happening in Europe, is a slipping out of control disaster. Most likely, this is not what the brains behind the scenes have dreamed for Europe.
As studied in chapter The Ten-horned Beast. The Key Players of the New World Order the goal of the E.U. was to conquer by economic and political means what the Roman Empire conquered by wars: the Middle East and North Africa. However, this is where the eurocrats stumbled: they did not and could have possibly seen that these are the last says of this world, as we know it, and that they are not in control anymore. They are not in control of the eternal affairs of the union, let alone of the global affairs. As we will see later in this chapter, the Most High is in control and everything is happening according to the writing on the wall: MENE, MENE, TEQEL, UPHARSIN.
The E.U. is the first and considered the most important union in the ten-horned beast as it served for a long period of time to be the model after which the other unions of the last empire have been molded. However, the concentration of power the E.U. has reached its limit, and the time has come for it to crumble and collapse from within.
The first domino to fall in the E.U. is the United Kingdom for the betrayal of the European Jewry. During the Mandate period, Britain encouraged the Arabs’ incitements of riots and murders of Jews, who had just escaped the horror of the Holocaust and WWII, in order to limit and even halt Jewish emigration to the land despite the Balfour Declaration and the San Remo conference.
In 2016 the so-called “Brexit” (Britain’s exit from the E.U.) may be the beginning of dismembering of the E.U. So, instead of realizing the dream of unifying the European countries into a strong union and even expanding into the Middle East and North Africa to form the Union for Mediterranean (UfM) as a first step towards the creation of a Mediterranean Union and thus becoming a revived Roman Empire, the dismembering of the E.U. may be becoming a fact.
Other countries in the union may follow Britain’s example and leave the E.U. Italy could be the next to make its own “Itexit.” A referendum has been called for October on whether Italy, which is facing the collapse of its banking system, should keep the euro or bring back the Italian lira. A move by Italy which is the third-largest economy in the Eurozone to abandon the euro could affect the currency and to the E.U. itself. For instance, Italy has one of the biggest public debt in Europe, second only to Greece which could follow quickly Britain and Italy and made its own “Grexit.”
The political dynamic in Italy is not much different from the one in the UK. The Italians have seen no productivity growth since Italy joined the Eurozone in 1999. The Italian political establishment has been as dismissive as the British establishment was until Brexit.
An Italian exit from the single currency would trigger the total collapse of the Eurozone within a very short period. The analysts are warning that the turmoil in Italy could spread to the rest of the Eurozone. The Eastern European countries may decide that they are in a better shape in the union than Britain and leave. A possible dismembering of the E.U. may be a fulfilment of Ezra’s prophecy in 2Es 12:11-30 of collapse of the Big Four (the Trilateral Commission and EurASEC). For more on this, see Chapter The Image of the Beast.
In conclusion of the matter of the writing on the wall, the migrant crisis in Europe is not just a humanitarian crisis. It is also a cultural, financial, political, and demographic crisis. The very fabric of Europe and the West is being changed very quickly and irreversibly before our eyes. As the European empires once colonized the Middle East, the Indian sub-continent, Central Asia, Africa, and the Far East, the table is being turned around and the Islamic world is giving the colonizing “good old Europe” what it well deserves.
The Jewish communities of Germany, France, Britain and elsewhere, however, are worried about the surges of Islam in Europe. And we may say that this is Islam’s ultimate goal of a global Caliphate as they attempt to retake areas that were previously under the Muslim banner like Portugal and Spain in the West, and the Balkans in the East. It is very possible, that the current “exodus” of Muslims from the Middle East is a direct invasion of Europe, which creates a lot of tension as Islam still continues to grow.
Rabbi Pinchas Winston has made the connection between rising anti-Semitism in the world and Europe in particular and the End of Days by pointing out the supernatural nature of anti-Semitism. He says,
“If anti-Semitism is simply hatred of the Jewish people, you just have to stay out of the way. If it’s a Divine message then we can assume that God is saying something specific. Every time we ignore it, everything gets worse and we suffer terribly in the end. Everybody who thinks seriously about anti-Semitism clearly sees there is no logic behind it. God wanted to make His point stark, so he sent the Arabs to the rest of the world to do to the rest of the world what they have done to the Jews in Israel.”
History repeats itself and those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it. In pre-war Europe, the Jewry had enough signs to see the coming danger of Nazism, but few saw it and left and survived. Today we see the same situation: ramping anti-Semitism, terrorism in places, violence all over the world, but how many see it? How many of the European and world Jewry will leave and return to the Promised Land?
This rapid change in the European status quo may be a catalyst of accelerating of the Jewish migration to the Land. 2015 is the year of a record high aliya (immigration) of the European Jewry, with more than 30,000 newcomers to Israel. Some 29,500 immigrants arrived in the country over the past year, with more than 14,000 from the former Soviet Union, according to statistics released by the Immigration and Absorption Ministry and the Jewish Agency. This marks a thirteen percent increase over the previous year.
This is a window of opportunity that the State of Israel cannot miss. While around 3,600 immigrants came from North American, the largest sources of aliya were France (7,350) and Ukraine (6,900), increases of ten percent and fifty percent, respectively. Russian aliya also rose, with 5,900 people 23 percent more than in the previous year. Despite the increased aliya, however, there are many people who have gone to Israel in order to obtain citizenship but have then returned to Russia.
The trends enumerated in these figures reflect especially the worsening situation for Jews in several European countries and the ability of the current Israeli economy to absorb in large part the new arrivals. However, these levels of aliya constitute about 0.3 percent of Israel’s population, not enough to change existing balances. And this may be just the beginning. It seems that by massive Muslim migration in the E.U. Elohim is turning the heat on the European Jewry to return to the Land, but how many have the eyes to see and ears to hear the message?
With the End of Days so close, Rabbi Winston explained that Elohim is in the process of identifying who, among the Jewish people, will survive the coming changes.
“If a person is in Israel and connected to the idea of geula [the final redemption of the Jewish people], that person has the best chance of surviving.”
“We see from the past that religious observance was not a guaranteed ticket to freedom and protection. Being in the right place at the right time when an exile comes to an end has worked for the religious and secular alike. Many want to believe that there is no imperative to be in Israel today, or at least to dream of living there. But if one follows the trend over the last couple of hundred years, he or she will see that Divine Providence has quietly at times, and not so quietly at other times, been moving the Jewish people back in that direction.”
According to Rabbi Winston, anti-Semitism is Elohim’s way of forcing a Jew to choose to be on one side or the other.
Rabbi Winston suggests two possibilities for the future. One is that Elohim has a fantastic miracle in store – a plan to put awareness of the spiritual reality into the heads of all Jews everywhere. The other, darker scenario is a major national disaster to take the Jewish people out of America. Until now, the latter has usually been the means of supernatural choice. For more on this, read chapter Two Scenarios for the War of Gog.
Hence, E.U.’s involvement in the Syrian war through French and British interventions in the conflict has become inevitable. E.U. will try to turn the tide of the refugee influx or at least to slow it down.
Writing on the wall concerning China
China is the unnoticeable writing on the wall. As already said, the building of Chabahar port by India is seen as a counterweight for the big Chinese naval base at Gwadar on the Arabian Ocean which it shares with Pakistan. These efforts, of course, will bring into the stage another big player: China.
China’s attitude to the world beyond its borders is governed by self-interest, which mainly means an economic expansion. By “borders” the Chinese mean their historic territory, including Tibet and Taiwan outside of which the Chinese have no wish to become imperial power. They do not particularly like other cultures and other peoples, believing their own to be the best and most virtuous, and do not wish upon themselves the trouble of ruling them. The economic invasion is something else.
China’s economy, though, has a thirst for raw materials and energy, understand oil. In private conversation, Chinese officials insist that they are content to follow the American lead in such matters as Iran’s nuclear deal, for instance. They do not envy America’s position of world policeman. American unfitness to lead the world affairs, though, might have pushed China to take a more active role in the Middle East. That may never happen, but it is not out of the question.
China is Saudi Arabia’s biggest trading partner and will depend on Saudi oil indefinitely. It buys oil from Iran, but far less. China is the most important investor in Pakistan and is likely to become a major presence in the economic and military life of Turkey, as it possibly provides Turkey with an air defense system. Faced with an self-assured Russia in the Black Sea region and in Syria, where Turkey is deeply committed to the opposite side, Turkey could use the friend from the east. Turkey’s gigantic foreign debt begs the question of where it will find a better foreign investment than in China.
In other words, China has more to lose from regional instability and conflicts in the Middle East than the other major players, given its energy dependency. If it wished to put pressure on Iran on the nuclear deal, it surely could by a number of means. But as already stated China has interests in its expansion to the world only by the means of trade. According to some Iranian sources Iran had been taken hostage by countries benefitting from the sanctions – particularly China, which had been called the worst business partner Iran had ever had. China has monopolized Iran’s trade by making Iran subsidize Chinese goods, which Iranians are forced to import. Thus China destroys Iran’s domestic production, and speaking of oil, leaves oil and gas projects undeveloped which does not benefit Iran at all.
This dependency of China on the Middle East’s oil may make a call for China to take on responsibility as a world power. This may bring China to the point that, if China wants to import more oil from the Middle East than any other country in the world to meet the dire needs of its economy, then it must answer for the region’s security by taking concrete steps.
As U.S.’s interest in the Middle East diminishes day by day, as it heads towards energy self-sufficiency, the sleeping giant may one day become the new world leader whether it wants it or not. There are some voices from E.U. which call for China to take more responsibility in the world affairs as China continues to become more and more influential. Such voices are not unheard from Israel, either. The U.S. may learn the intentions of the other world powers who gradually fill the vacuum left by Washington’s withdrawal from the world and from the Middle East region well after the fact.
Despite China’s long-standing diplomatic principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states, Beijing cannot completely control its citizens’ involvement in terrorist activity abroad. Whether China likes it or not, it is being drawn into the conflict against ISIS. When ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi named China first in the list of targeted countries last year over alleged oppression of Muslim Uighurs in the Xinjiang region, there was hardly any strong reaction from Beijing.
One thing is certain, however. ISIS, being a major source of instability in the Middle East, has affected China’s economic interests in that area. The Chinese believe that ISIS has affected regional stability in China’s neighborhood, such as Central Asia and even South East Asia, which is crucial to Beijing’s plans to boost economic and trade links with its neighbors through its vision of reviving ancient Silk Road routes and fighting ISIS will also serve China’s domestic interests, as the militant group supports the East Turkestan Islamic Movement.
Also, other factors cannot be ruled out. By getting involved in fight against ISIS, China can improve its fighting capabilities and lack of war experience which the other major players have in abundance. Given China’s deteriorating security environment, a military conflict with others cannot be entirely ruled out. In order to win a war, there is no better preparation than participating in a real war.
In official statements China formally opposes all forms of terrorism. China is willing to strengthen cooperation with the international community to fight together against terrorist forces, including the “East Turkestan Islamic Movement” in order to protect regional and global security and stability, but seems that China’s problems with the domestic terrorism are more important than the international terrorism. China is more concerned with building a military stronghold in South China Sea to curb any foreign presence in its “soft belly.”
However, China may soon be forced to make difficult policy choices with significant implications for its diplomacy and international role. It may no longer be able to make official statements linking Uyghur separatists within its borders to international terrorist organizations without making a real effort to fight terrorism abroad but to send more troops in Syria in addition to the limited presence there.
Hence, China’s involvement in the Syrian war has become inevitable.
Writing on the wall concerning Iran, Turkey, Jordan, Libya, and Hezbollah
The Iranian and Hezbollah leaderships know that Russia cannot be trusted: Russia’s priority is to save Assad’s regime, not to protect Iran’s interests. In fact, what Iran wants in Syria differs substantially from what Russia wants.
The assassinations via air raids Israel did in Syria have exposed the truth about Russia’s coordination with Israel and how serious it is when it comes to targeting Hezbollah’s commanders and assets while Hezbollah cannot retaliate. Iran, for sure, is not in Syria to make compromises over its authority and control, and it is certainly not supposed to accept an ally like Russia coordinating with an enemy like Israel.
The assassinations which Israel conducted revealed two things: that Iran is actually weak and is compromising in Syria, and that the region has moved beyond the Israeli-Arab conflict. This made Hezbollah now have different priorities. For Hezbollah, the most unsettling part of this military coordination between Russia and Israel is that it allows Israel to fly freely over Syria as long as it coordinates with Russia.
Meanwhile, Iran is not benefitting from the Russian intervention. Rather, it is jeopardizing its plans and ambitions in the region. It is evident for the Iranians (or at least this is how they see it) that Russia is more concerned with Israel’s interests over those of Iran or Syria, which directly affects the Russia–Syria–Iran–Iraq coalition (RSII coalition). For the time being, this coalition is still operational but until when?
As far as Russia is concerned Iran and its interests are not its priority. Russia is in Syria for Russia, not for Iran. When the U.S. signed the nuclear deal in 2015 (bear in mind that Iran never signed the deal), it was sold to the Shiite support base at home as a victory. Thus, Iran was accepted in the nuclear club and it is thirteen years from its nuclear bomb. With the Russian intervention in Syria, however, Iran actually started losing influence, control, and future prospects which might have forced Iran to withdraw Revolutionary Guard units in Syria, moving them to Iraq after Russian-Iranian dispute escalated in Syria. This move might have been caused by what the Iranians see as Russia’s intention to keep the Syrian battlefield exclusively to itself. That does not mean that Iran is without goals in the Middle East. Iran wants to keep Alawite Syria as an ally because the Alawites (the ruling sect of Assad in Syria) are Shiites and because it gives them a land connection to Hezbollah who are also Shiites.
The Ba’ath Party of Syria, which advocated the ideologies of Arab nationalism and Arab socialism had clashed with the Muslim Brotherhood (a group with a conservative ideology) since 1940. This is the same Muslim Brotherhood that overthrew the moderate and pro-western regime in Egypt of general Mubarak. This is the same Muslim Brotherhood that is behind the turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa.
The two groups, the Ba’ath Party of Syria and the Muslim Brotherhood, are opposed in important ways. The Ba’ath party is nominally secular and nationalist. The Muslim Brotherhood, like other Islamist groups, see nationalism as un-Islamic and religion as inseparable from politics and government.
From 1976 to 1982, Sunni Islamists fought the Ba’ath Party-controlled government of Syria in what has been called a “long campaign of terror” by staging hit-and-run and bomb attacks against the government and its officials, including a nearly successful attempt to assassinate President Hafez al-Assad, the father of the current president of Syria, on 26 June 1980.
On the other hand, Russia and Turkey are in a historical conflict with each other. All of the nations seem so surprised that Turkey began a fight with Russia. It is impossible to understand how a country like Turkey can start a war with nuclear Russia by downing a Russian bomber. Turkey and Russia have long been in a proxy war in Syria: Russia, together with its quieter partner, China, supports the Shi’ite Iran-backed Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad; and Turkey explicitly supports Assad’s Sunni opponents the so-called “moderate” jihadists, ethnic Turkmen, apparently in the hope of building a Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas-type of regime in Syria that would be friendly to its own Islamist government. Or, the other possible game of Turkey is to partition Syria into areas of influence between different Islamist factions and take its own chunk by supporting the ethnic Turkmen and at the same time to use the Syrian conflict to destroy once and for all the Kurdish minorities in Turkey, Syria, and Iraq: something Turkey has always desired and now they have the chance to actually do.
Russia wants to bolster its position in Syria where its only foreign Navy base is and supporting Assad’s regime is a means of achieving this goal, while Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other Sunni-dominated Persian Gulf countries are most interested in defeating Assad and his Shiite allies Iran and Hezbollah, rather than attacking the Sunni Islamic State.
For generations, the largest to Jordan has been its Palestinian majority. However, the Palestinians are not the only threat for Jordan. Since the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003, between 750,000 and a million Iraqis entered Jordan to seek refuge. For Jordan it is going from bad to worse. Today, the official UN count of Syrian refugees stands at 635,000. But the actual number of Syrians in Jordan could be assessed between 1.1 million and 1.6 million – or some 13 percent of the population.
In summary, the population of Jordan stood at 5.29 million in 2004. In 2013 it was 6.46 million. In 2015 it was 9.53 million. The massive influx of foreigners has drained Jordan’s public resources to the breaking point in similar way as in Europe.
In Lebanon, the refugee crisis is even worse. Since the start of the war in Syria, more than a million Syrians have entered Lebanon as refugees, although some of them probably have headed to Europe. Today they comprise 25 percent of the population of Lebanon.
It is far from clear what the medium- and short-term implications of the refugee flows will be for either Jordan or Lebanon. Neither Jordan nor Lebanon have a clear unifying national ethnos.
In December 2003, Libya renounced its possession of weapons of mass destruction, decommissioning its chemical and nuclear weapons programs. It also paid reparations for the downing of the Pan American plane over Lockerbie. Qaddafi also abandoned terrorism. As a result relations with the U.S. and the EU improved considerably. Nevertheless the U.S., together with the E.U. (the two horned beast), decided he had to be deposed. Even a minor pretext was sufficient to justify military action to remove his regime and ultimately bringing about his death. And it came, thus, Libya was destabilized and thrown into chaos in the Arab Spring revolution.
It remains to be seen what Russia and the U.S. will do with ISIS and whether Iraq is also broken up into three parts; one for the Kurds who already enjoy autonomy and may claim a territory in Turkey, one for the Shiites who represent 60 percent of the population, and one for the Sunnis. Thus Sunni Iraq and Sunni Syria may get together if all parties agree.
Syria is in war and torn apart by different religious and militant factions, chaos in Libya, military regime in control of Egypt, Russia now in charge of Assad, all of whom are threatened by ISIS and other Islamist groups who are fostering much more dictatorship that the dictators ever did. Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and the Sinai are in the crosshairs of both Iran and ISIS.
Russia’s entry into the war causes the number of Syrian refuges in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey to rise. As already stated, the same goes for Europe. The demographic transformation of Europe (but not only Europe) shows that the greatest threat is the refugees from states (Syria, Libya, Iraq, Egypt) that have collapsed due to the Western powers of taking down moderate dictatorships and replacing them with violence and uncertainty.
Hence, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, and Hezbollah are already in Syria.
Writing on the wall concerning the United States
The irony today is that no major power in recent history has done more to help, please, and appease Islam than the United States. And, yet, no other nation has been a victim of violence on the part of the Islam as has the U.S. Let us face the historic facts.
Both Presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson tried to appease the Islamist pirates of North Africa in the hope of persuading them to cease their raids on U.S. commercial ships and stop capturing Americans and selling them as slaves in the Mediterranean. They sent peace missions laden with gifts and cash, and flattered the pirates. In the end, however, they had to take military action.
It was President Woodrow Wilson who pressured at the end of WWI that the main European imperial powers of the day, Great Britain and France, publicly commit to respecting the right of self-determination for nations freed from the Ottoman yoke. The U.S. invented the idea of “mandates” under the League of Nations, without that, there would probably have been no independent Arab states in the Levant, at least for decades.
It was President Truman who prevented the British from partitioning mandatory “Palestine” among their Arab clients, having already taken a big chunk of it to create an emirate for their Hashemite puppet on the east bank of the Jordan River, that is Jordan.
It was President John F. Kennedy who pressured France to accelerate progress towards Algeria’s independence thus creating a new Muslim state.
In the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, triggered by Egypt, the U.S. used its pressure to persuade the Israelis to stop the war after only six days. The Israelis wanted in retaliation to complete their destruction of Arab air forces by wiping out Egypt’s heavy weapons on the ground as well. It was under American pressure that the Israelis agreed to accepted a ceasefire under the auspices of the United Nations.
In the 1973 Yom Kippur War, too, U.S. intervention helped restrain the Israelis, who had built up an invasion force under General Ariel Sharon a stone’s-throw from Cairo, again in retaliation of the Arab invasion in Israel.
It was President Jimmy Carter in the Camp David talks who led to peace between Egypt and Israel, under an intense pressure to force the Israelis to abandon plans to maintain “security zone” inside the Sinai Peninsula, thus helping President Anwar Sadat recover all of Egypt’s lost territory in the Yom Kippur War.
It was President Ronald Reagan who led a multinational force in 1982 to intervene in Lebanon to stop the Israeli advance beyond the Litani River when Israel acted in self defense against the Hezbollah. That force also helped save the lives of Yasser Arafat, terrorist number one, and his close associates in the leadership of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) when, trapped in Beirut. He even arranged for Arafat and his entourage a safe passage to Tunisia, free of charge.
It was President Ronald Reagan who helped the Muslim Talibans drive the Soviets out of Afghanistan and created Al-Qaida and Osama Bin-Laden. And it was President Ronald Reagan who condemned Israelis for destroying Sadam’s nuclear reactor in 1981 and it was President George H. Bush who did not thank them for having done it when ten years later in 1991 U.S. waged war against Iraq.
It was President George H. Bush who send American troops to drive Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait, thus protecting the British oil interests in Kuwait but also saving Saudi Arabia from Iraqi occupation.
It was President Bill Clinton who helped Kosovo achieve independence thus creating a Muslim enclave in Central Europe along with Bosnia-Herzegovina.
As an open society, the U.S. has always welcomed Islamic exiles of all kinds, including some of its own bitter enemies. The only time that the pan-Islamist Hezbollah movement, founded and led by Iran, has ever held an international conference outside Iran or Lebanon was in Austin Texas in 1986, when a number of Latin American branches of the movement were created. Hundreds of former high-ranking Khomeinist civilian and military officials and clerics have ended up in the U.S. as exiles, while many others have their children attending U.S. schools and universities.
Today, half of Islamic Republic President Hassan Rouhani’s closest aides are holders of PhDs from U.S. universities, among them his Chief of Staff, Muhammad Nahavandian, a Green Card holder, and his Foreign Minister Muhammad Javad Zarif. (The other half consists of former holders of U.S. hostages in Tehran, among them Defense Minister Hussein Dehqan and Environmental director Masoumeh Ebtekar.) Quite a few of Osama bin Laden’s 50 or so siblings are either holders of U.S. passports or green cards, along with thousands of other Saudis.
In the 1990s, when Saudi Arabia normalized ties with China, it shut down the offices of the Uighur exiles in Jeddah. Where did the exiles transfer to? The answer is: Washington DC, since neither Muslim nations nor Europeans would agree to host them.
Unlike Russia, which has a 200-year history of war against Muslims, having annexed Islamic land at the rate of one square kilometer a day during the 19th century, the U.S. never annexed any Muslim-majority nation. And unlike China, which is still holding its Muslim minority, the Uighurs, in East Turkestan (Xinjiang) surrounded by a ring of steel, the U.S. is not trying to stop a Muslim nation’s aspiration after self-determination.
During the past six decades, the U.S. has been by far the largest donor of military aid to the Muslim nations. In the 1940s and ’50s, tens of millions of Muslims were saved from starvation and famine thanks to the U.S. food aid. Many Muslims nations have been annually receiving large checks from the U.S. for decades. It is true that the U.S. supports also Israel, but the financial and military aid the U.S. provides to the Muslim nations as a whole far exceeds that provided to Israel.
Many still consider the U.S. a Christian nation established on Judeo-Christian principles by the founding fathers to be one nation “under God” but it was George Washington who was still President when the Treaty of Tripoli was ceremonially signed on November 4, 1796. Then President John Adams signed the treaty into law on June 10, 1797. Article 11 of that treaty reads, in part, “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”
Hence, The U.S.’s involvement in the Syrian war has become inevitable.
Writing on the wall concerning Russia
As Russia has been deepening its involvement in Syria since 2015, it risks more than a military intervention: but a growing domestic threat, one that could destabilize the whole country. A new brand of radical Islam is rising in Russia, fueled by Chechen fighters based in the North Caucasus region eager to perpetrate acts of terror at home. When Moscow declared victory in Chechnya in 2009, after a decade of brutal fighting, it suggested that the threat of radical violence had been largely contained. But militant Islam did not disappear. In fact, the fundamentalist teachings have spread from Chechnya throughout central Russia and has become a real danger for Russia. The country has become a new front in the war against Islam a fact that has not been admitted in the West.
Today, an estimated 20 million Muslims (including 6.5 million migrants from Azerbaijan and Central Asia) live in Russia, up from 14.5 million in 2002. The impact of that radicalization is already apparent in central Russia, home to the Tatars, Russia’s largest Muslim ethnic group (there are about five million of them).
Aside of the geopolitical role Russia wants to have in the Middle East, another reason why Russia is intervening in Syria is because of its domestic Muslim violence. The Russians believe that a flow of trouble comes from Syria due to the insurgency the West has been fueling in it. They want to stop this trend by keeping Assad as a safe secular dictator who has been given the task to end that flow. Putin has no particular love for Shiite Iran, Alawites, Hezbollah, no love even for Assad. Putin loves Russia.
As it will be said in chapter Will Elohim Use Russia To Judge America, the “marriage” of Russia and Iran is based on common interests against the U.S. So, Putin just has to work with the Iranians to counteract the American influence in the region. The sharing of power between Russia and Iran has started in Syria, but there is a disagreement for the moment because of the growing influence of Iran in Damascus, which Russia is seeking to reduce.
But what may not be seen on the surface is that Putin has a passionate hatred for Sunni jihadists in general and the Chechens in particular, some of whom are fighting with ISIS and whom will return to Russia and restart the war on Russia’s soil that he so brutally extinguished. Therefore, saving the secular Assad regime is essential for Russia’s security in Putin’s view by keeping the lid on Sunni jihad. Bear in mind that the Middle East is the soft belly of Russia.
We may ask the question why Russia is not striking ISIS but it is striking predominately the anti-government Islamist rebels in Syria, as being accused by the West. From Russia’s point of interest, ISIS is a lesser evil. Russia’s interest is much larger than destroying ISIS; Putin can do it by carpet bombing. Its interest for the time being is how to hold Assad’s regime together until some end game can be reached through which Russia will keep its military bases in western Syria. Once this goal is achieved, there will be no reason why ISIS should exist any longer. Until then Putin has let the U.S. and E.U. to be preoccupied with ISIS and do the dirty job, while he is pursuing Russia’s major interest, namely to build up Russian military presence in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Unlike, the U.S., Russia has never sought a “winner-takes-all” victory on the global stage. Rather, its entry into the Syrian conflict reflected its view that the West was a key obstacle in the way of a political settlement in Syria, hence its aim to weaken all armed groups which Russia considers terrorists and coerce a compromise. Russia still has a number of long-term objectives to pursue in Syria. These include the stabilization of Syria, the formation of a coalition government free from extremist organizations, such as Al Qaeda and ISIS, and ensuring Russia’s (not Iran’s) leading role in the country’s future. This long-term goal of Russia to stay in the Middle-East as long as it can may even include the possibility of compromising Syria’s territorial integrity, if this will lead to strengthening its position in the region at the expense of Turkey.
Putin is taking a pro-Kurds stance for reason. It is not that Russia is very much pro-Kurdish but the reason being is again Russia’s long-term interest in the Middle-East. By creating eventually a Kurdish state on the territories of Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Turkey, Russia aims at creating another ally in this troublesome region at the expense of those country.
So, how can we then explain Putin’s “Iran connection?”
Russia is not acting to help the Shiite Iran but for strategic reasons Russia sees Syria as a local foothold on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, and the basis for achieving Russia’s Middle Eastern aspirations, which include control of a port and over territory. In order to achieve this goal, Russia allowed Iran, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, and Iraq to join the coalition and be the boots on the ground for Russia while Russia keeps safe its own troops.
That does not mean that Iran and Hezbollah share the same goal Putin has, but have their own Iranian-Islamist-Shiite dream. At present, they are riding on the Russia’s back because, while pursuing its own interests, Russia is doing the dirty work against the Sunni Saudi coalition and Islamic State for them. We can expect that Putin is aware of this and that could be a miscalculation on their part.
Putin is playing a good chess game against one single opponent: Islam. Russians hate Muslims just like all eastern Slavic people who had been under Islamic tyranny for hundreds of years. One of the reasons for Russia to ally itself to Iran is to counteract NATO’s expansion in the Eastern Europe and the U.S. which has been allied to the Gulf monarchies to protect its own oil interest. Thus he keeps in check the West by playing the wild Iranian card.
Putin however knows that Russia has a large Muslim population and cannot allow it to take over Russia as it is happening to Europe by the hands of Islam. Contrary to what looks obvious, Putin may not allow Iran to acquire nuclear arms which would turn Iran into a threat Russia could never afford. Why would he need another nuclear threat in the soft belly of Russia? As long as Iran plays the Russian game and buys air missile defense systems, it will be tolerable for Russia.
So, why did Putin open the door for Iran to become a nuclear power? The answer could be only one: Iran can become nuclear with or without Russia’s assistance. The ayatollahs have long been desiring to acquire a nuclear bomb to threaten Israel with wiping off the map of the world. If not from Russia they could acquire it from countries such as China and North Korea and no one would know how the events would unfold. By playing the chess game well, Putin follows the well proven maxima to keep his friends close, but his enemies closer. By having allowed Iran to join the nuclear club and yet not having the actual bomb, he would have more leverage on Iran rather than if the ayatollahs have turned to China and/or North Korea. Thus Putin achieved two goals: to keep Iran under his control as long as possible and have Iran’s silent approval for Putin’s dealing in Muslim Chechnya.
Hence, Russia’s involvement in the Syrian war has become inevitable.
Writing on the wall concerning The Big Four
After we dissected the complex situation of the Middle East where the war of Gog of Magog will take place, we may proceed further in this matter. Below we will make the effort to see the last day events through the prophecy of Ezra the Priest:
In that kingdom shall arise eight kings, whose times shall be easy, and their years swift and two of them shall perish. When the middle time begins to approach: four kings shall be kept until their end begins to approach: but two shall be kept unto the end. (2Es_12:11-30)
As studied in chapter The Ten-horned Beast. Key Players of the New World Order, the Trilateral Commission which sprung from the Bilderberger Club (the image of the beast) and the Counsel of Foreign Relations, comprises the countries from (1) the European Union, (2) the North American Union, (3) ASEAN+3, ANZUS, and India from SAARC and represents the interests of three of the four world powers or kings in 2Es 12:11-30. All nuclear powers but Russia are in the Trilateral Commission and all UN Security Counsel members but Russia are also in the Trilateral Commission. (4) the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) represented by Russia is the fourth king in the prophecy. Therefore, we may say, everything is boils down to a conflict between the Trilateral commission and Russia. And to be even more specific: between the U.S. and Russia.
The U.S. and Russia are superpowers, and when it comes to superpowers, the competition for power causes power vacuum when one of them has been removed from power. And since there is no such a thing as “power vacuum” in the real life, the removal of one of the powers brings another one in its place.
That was true when the U.S. removed the former Soviet Union first from Afghanistan and then from the political power through its collapse and the vacuum that was created in the 1990’s which led in return to the creation of the Islamic terrorism. This power vacuum returned as a boomerang to the U.S. and resulted in 9/11 tragedy, the Taliban war against the U.S. troops in the same Afghanistan, and the creation of ISIS, etc. It will be also true when other world power will be removed according to the prophecy in 2Esdras.
Russia is reacting to what the U.S. and NATO are doing in Russia’s sphere of interest in Eastern Europe and more particularly in Ukraine, and the Middle East by extension. While the U.S. accuses Russia of interfering in Ukraine and Syria, the U.S. and NATO are doing exactly that in Ukraine and Syria, but also in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, and Egypt where America and Europe’s support for the so-called moderate rebels of Arab Spring brought nothing less than export of “democracy” by ousting the dictators, but only to see the rising Islam in their places.
After the dictators were removed and these countries destabilized, the West under the motto to protect the local populations from the new tyrants (Islamic terrorist groups), started arming what they call moderate Islamic militias with weapons, sending war planes and thus fueling local sectarianism and hatred between antagonistic religious and ethnic groups in the Middle East and North Africa.
The U.S. government knows that these fighters are no moderate at all, but the U.S. will arm anyone who opposes Russia and Assad’s regime as long as they can take away Syria from Russia’s sphere of influence. When it comes to the Sunni world of the Middle East, always remember that there are two factions: the nationalists like the Arab Socialist Baath parties in Iraq of Saddam Hussein and in Syria of the Assad’s, and also Kaddafi in Libya, and on the other hand the Islamists; the former are the main allies of Russia and the latter, the main enemies of Russia.
The U.S. took down the moderate regime of Saddam, Kaddafi, and Mubarak under the pretext to stop state-sponsored terrorism, but rather than having ridden of terrorism, the U.S. brought the terrorism in the region through the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other radical Islamist factions in the Middle East. The nationalists like Saddam Hussein and Kaddafi the U.S. and NATO removed through the means of war and Mubarak in Egypt through civil unrest. The Islamists are what the West installed whether by design or by nearsighted foolishness. In some countries they succeeded and in others they did not but the main motivation behind this destructive policy is their inherited hatred towards Russia: what is bad for Russia, is good for the West, regardless of the cost.
However, this policy started to get a backlash in the face of the refugee crisis and terrorism in Western Europe. Putin might have understood that, because he intensified the air strikes in Syria in order to create even larger refugee flow to Europe thus punishing it for the economic sanctions Europe imposed on Russia for the annexation of Crimea. The refugee crisis in Western Europe, mainly in Germany, France, and Great Britain, created unsustainable economic crisis of its own estimated in billions of euros, political turmoil, and demographic changes that started rocking foundations of the European Union. What Russia lost due to the sanctions, Europe lost due to the refugee influx. We may call this Putin’s revenge for Crimea.
It is wrong to assume that this U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East is limited only to the Obama administration. It is true that the recent conflict in the region was initiated by the Obama administration with the “New Beginning” tour in 2009, but this can be said for all U.S. governments regardless who was occupying the White House; they all supported the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union. As a result, they created political vacuum in Afghanistan which in return created America’s worst enemy: the radical Islam impersonated in Osama Bin-Laden. The nearsighted American and European policy makers care less what will come out of it as long as Russia is kicked out of its spheres of influence, which they succeeded in the past. What they did not understand is that there is no such a thing as vacuum in the real life and in politics in particular.
Fact is Iran’s rising on the political and war stage as a regional power created by America’s invasion and occupation in Iraq where the vacuum and instability was created for al-Qaeda and its off-shoot ISIS to move in and later on in Syria, as well. Which in return let Iran to step up after Saddam’s Iraq was destroyed. What the Bush administration was blind to see was that Saddam’s Iraq was holding Iran in check and that Saddam and Osama were enemies. By removing Saddam from the equation, Osama filled the vacuum. Therefore, we may conclude, Al-Qaeda would have never set a foot in Iraq, if there was no Western invasion in Iraq. But, the U.S. is always ready for sacrificing anything for maintaining the superpower status.
One can argue that Russia supports the Islamic Iran which is the other destabilizing factor in the region and it does. And as stated already Russia does this as a reaction to the U.S. influence in this part of the world and because Iran is an open menace to the U.S., Russia is using it to keep in check its main foe. And for the same reason Putin supports Assad, too. Putin knows very well that he cannot allow to lose another ally in the face of Syria as he lost Libya.
Having said that, we may understand why Russia is not in Syria to fight against ISIS (although the turnaround of the war against ISIS started with Russia’s invasion in Syria in 2015) much less to help Iran set foot in Syria. Putin left ISIS for the U.S., the Arabs, and Iran to do the dirty job in order to keep them preoccupied, while he pursue Russia’s global interests. Russia is in Syria to defend its own interest in the Middle East, the soft belly of Russia. Therefore, Russia sees ISIS as the main obstacle for the U.S. in the region. Putin knows that ISIS is a Muslim problem and as long as ISIS is outside of Russia’s buffer zone it is not Russia’s problem but a problem for the U.S., Saudi Arabia, and also for Iran and its proxies. Thus, fighting primarily against the rebels and secondarily against ISIS (as long as ISIS represents an immediate threat for Syria), Russia maintains the delicate status quo in the region trying to avoid drastic changes which can bring only uncertainty in the already troubled region.
It was the U.S. and Europe’s (the two horned beast in the prophecy in Revelation) politics that caused the wars in the Middle East and North Africa. Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, and Libya no longer exist as sovereign countries as we knew them before. And if there are some sorts of governments in these countries, they are deeply dependent on foreign support.
Putin as a good chess player acts cautiously but firmly with methodical air-strikes conquering little by little territory for his ally Assad, thus making him dependent on the Russian presence in Syria and also obedient; Assad has been turned into a lapdog of Putin. At the same time, Putin makes sure not to send at any cost Russian ground troops in Syria, but very lavishly uses Syrian, Iranian and Hezbollah boots on the ground in order to achieve his goals. Iranians and Hezbollah are not naïve not to understand this, but they do not have any other choice but to rely on Russian air-force while pursuing their own sectarian goals as long as they can pursue them.
The chaos caused by the West has now become a catalyst to unite Muslims who started fighting back and paying back the West with the so-called refugee crisis but more correctly: Islamic invasion in the West. Whether this is a part of the Bilderberg Club’s design for the New World Order or the things are just spinning out of control from the influential people thanks to Obama’s incompetence, we cannot know for sure. What we can know is that the main players of the last days are in place and the stage is all set by Elohim the Lord of hosts for “the finale.”
Not much is left to happen before “Damascus is no more” of Isaiah 17:1, ‘See, Damascus ceases to be a city, and shall become a heap of ruins.’ The final stroke of Elohim will take place when we see Damascus, Kush (Sudan), Egypt, Persia (Iran), Lydia (Turkey), Put (North Africa) and mixed multitude, will come together to form a covenant.
For the day is near, even the day of Yehovah is near. It is a day of clouds, the time of the nations. The sword shall come upon Egypt, and great anguish shall be in Kush, when the slain fall in Egypt, and they take away her wealth, and her foundations are broken down. Kush, and Put, and Lud, all the mixed people, and Kuv, and the sons of the land of the covenant, shall fall with them by the sword. (Eze 30:3-5)
Having said all that, we may see a common factor in the troublesome regions the Middle East and North Africa where all players of the War of Gog of Magog have been summoned. This common factor is ISIS.
Elohim is using, according to the present author’s understanding, this terrorist organization to serve as a catalyst to bring all nations listed in the prophecy in Ezekiel 38 and 39 in the Middle East in order to judge them. It is not accidental that all political events in this troublesome region in particular and in the world as a whole are transpiring in the manner they are prophesied in Ezekiel and Zachariah. For more on this, refer to chapter The Two Scenarios for the War of Gog.
All of the pieces of the puzzle are in place but the situation would explode from one particular incident into a full-scale war. The table has been turned around. Russia is now in charge and running the show in Syria and in the Middle east and it is there to stay. The U.S. whether by incompetence or by design has become a secondary player.
Now, what is puzzling is this: if Russia has been allied with Iran, Syria, and Iraq, and Iran is a sworn enemy of the U.S., how come the U.S. (Magog) would ally with Iran to invade Israel? The answer can only be: if it is prophesied so, it will happen. This 180 degree turnaround could only happen from above. We already looked into the matter of what looks like a possible rift between Russia and Iran, and Israel playing major role in it.
Something may happen in the Middle East that can avert a further Russia-Iran coalition in Syria and the U.S. may take Russia’s place in the coalition and head it against Israel. This is not so impossible to predict given the anti-Israel bias of the modern-day Gog. The “marriage” of the U.S. and Iran would be that of a mutual interest against a common foe, not of “love.” Obama’s “fight” against ISIS may be a cover for a political realignment in the region, namely the U.S. and Iran agree for different reasons that ISIS is a common foe, and so they may ally in this “fight.”
Actually, this realignment is already being fulfilled; there are joint military operations which neither part of “the alliance” wants to admit publicly. Not to mention, the infamous Iranian nuclear deal and the lifting of the sanctions. All U.S. administrations know very well that money is a powerful instrument of coercive diplomacy. Money brings power, and more money brings even more power.
When Obama made the nuclear deal and lifted the sanctions against Iran, he gave Iran ability to make war not only against ISIS, but primarily against Israel. If he really wanted to stop the war in Syria, he could have negotiated sanction relief only if Iran completely withdraws from Syria. Iran would have never agreed on this condition, hence the sanctions would have been in force.
However, the Obama administration has freed billions of dollars for Iran to use in its preparation of war not only against the Sunnis, but against Israel, too. This comes to tell us that Obama may see Iran as an ally in fulfilment of the prophecy in Ezekiel.
On the other hand, if Russia and Israel agree on some common goals, as the recent close ties between Putin and Netanyahu lead to such a conclusion, it will make Obama envious and he may go into rage as described by Daniel and will set out to do as much destruction as he possibly can knowing his time is short and quickly running out in January 2017.
Russia with its inherited hatred against Islam may not need Iran any longer once its goal in Syria has been achieved, namely to stabilize its traditional and loyal friend in the Middle East. A moderate and secular Syria may not need the Islamic Revolutionary Iran for the same reason and we may see a nuclear Russia on its side as a stronger friend than Iran; Iran perceiving itself as weak and used may seek other partner, not necessarily a friend, against its enemy Israel; the U.S. seeing itself replaced by Russia in the region may want to return on the stage with hesitation.
Even further, at certain point Russia may decide that Iran is only liability or even a burden, if Iran goes too far in its nuclear ambitions, and may let Israel attack the Iranian nuclear facilities as Russia has let Israel air-strike the Hezbollah and Iranian posts close the Golan Heights. This will anger Iran and its new partner the U.S. and this ultimately will trigger the fulfillment of the prophecy in Eze 38:3-6 and Gog and his new allies will be dragged into a full-scaled war against Israel:
See, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tuval. “And I shall turn you around, and I shall put hooks into your jaws, and shall lead you out, with all your army, horses and horsemen, clad perfectly, a great assembly with armor and shields, all of them handling swords. “Persia, Kush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet, “Gomer and all its bands, the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its bands, many peoples with you. (Eze 38:3-6)
Having said all that, the question we may ask is: “Why has Elohim raised leaders as Putin and Obama in such a time as this?” We cannot overlook the apparentness: in traditionally anti-Semitic Russia, Elohim has put in power a pro-Israel leader such as Putin and in traditionally pro-Israel America, anti-Semite Obama.
And this is the writing that was inscribed: MENE, MENE, TEQEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of each word: MENE – Elah has numbered your reign, and put an end to it. TEQEL – You have been weighed on the scales, and found lacking. PERES – Your reign has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. (Dan 5:25-28)
Whatever the original plan of the Bilderberg Group was for the world, it is a slipping out of control. “The Big Four” do not even realize that the Most High is in full control and everything is happening according to the writing on the wall: God has numbered your reign, and put an end to it, You have been weighed on the scales, Your reign has been divided.
