'expects' Obama to win; Looks to create defensible borders before pressured into
JERUSALEM – The Israeli government estimates Sen. Barack Obama will win the presidential electionsand is rushing to finalize a deal with the Palestinians and possibly Syria before President Bush leaves office, two top Israeli diplomats told WND.
The diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Israel is seeking to create "defensible borders" within months, fearing if territorial negotiations were held during an Obama administration, Israel would be pressured into more dangerous concessions.
"Israel must ensure defensible borders before Obama is elected," said one Israeli diplomat. "The [Israeli] leadership is motivated by many factors but one of them is a drive to conclude a deal for a Palestinian state and talks with Syria before the likely event of an Obama administration."
The other diplomat said Jerusalem is concerned by what he called Obama's "questionable" support of Israel:
"Look, there's no doubt [Prime Minister Ehud] Olmert is rushing into talks with Syria and looking to create a Palestinian state, at least on paper, by January due to the criminal probe against him. But it is understood Israel will get a better deal and can ensure its security better with Bush in office instead of Obama. [Obama's] support of Israel is questionable. We fear he is unfriendly," said the diplomat. WND.com
Although, most Bible believing prophecy experts believe that the Antichrist will come out of the European Union (revived Roman Empire), the possibility of Senator Barak Obama becoming the next US president leads one to speculate toward other possibilities.
Prophecy speculation aside, the Israeli government seems to believe that he will be the next president and is doing everything they can to bring about an agreement with the Syrians and the Palestinians before President Bush leaves office in January of 2009.
I find it very unlikely that an agreement will take place before President Bush leaves office. What I do find interesting is that the Israeli government seems to feel that, if elected, they could actually be pressured into "more dangerous concessions". An Israeli officially also stated concern over Senator Obama's "questionable" support for Israel.
Certainly, nobody knows who the Antichrist is and probably won't until after the rapture takes place, but this is a very compelling future scenario that could play out just as the Bible foretold thousand years ago.
