Bible Prophecy Analysis Of Middle East Unrest And Where Could Lead!
As Middle East unrest continues to spread throughout the region, what part will this ultimately play in Bible prophecy?
Most Middle East experts believe that once the unrest has settled down, new leadership will arise that will focus on the will of the people. One of the policies that will be reversed will be peace with Israel. It is very likely that both Egyptian and Jordanian leadership will have to rethink their long-standing peace accords with Israel due to the will of the people. For years, Islamic schools around the world have ingrained in the minds of their people that Israel is the cesspool to the region that must be wiped off the face of the earth.
It is the fear of the West, if Israel does not make peace soon, they will miss the opportunity and will face a new shift in power that will be highly unfavorable toward them. Just recently, an Egyptian official told Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barack that voters would favor candidates that are hostile toward the US and Israel. “'We're going to have a really open election....Civic parties will hire advisers from the U.S. and Europe and find immediately that what can bring them voters is hostility to America and Israel (Israelnationalnews).'"
The US and European Union have been pushing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make a groundbreaking statement in his address in May. Many in Israel are fearful that he will present a monumental plan that will give away much of the West Bank even though he says that Israeli troops must remain in the Jordan Valley.
Israeli officials are concerned that US President Barack Obama is expecting Netanyahu to mention some reference to permanent borders along pre-1967 lines. At the same time, US analysts are advising Obama, if the US is to remain relevant in the Middle East over the next decade, they will have to embrace the Islamic world (specially Iran) and cut ties with Israel.
In the short run, I would be shocked if Obama chose the path of his advisers given the solid support for Israel in the US. However, this is the path that the US will ultimately take. It may not come to fruition until after the rapture of the church takes place.
Though many view this Middle East revolt as a positive step toward democracy, better living conditions, and wages, I believe it will play a much bigger role in moving Bible prophecy forward. And when I say forward, I mean likely toward an ill advised peace accord. The only question is when? The unknown factor in this timetable is whether indeed Israel will face a more hostile Islamic environment and further international isolation.
Israel is being led to believe that the longer they put off presenting a plan that will create a Palestinian state with permanent borders they risk igniting a unified Islamic front that could push them into a regional war. The pressure is enormous that they must seize this opportunity and quick.
In other news, within a matter of days, major earthquakes have struck in New Zealand, Japan (2), and China.
