Netanyahu: My gov't will keep J'lem united;
BELIEVE the hype, and America’s planned missile-defence bases in Poland and the Czech Republic risked starting a new cold war. The Russians, claiming that they were intolerably provocative, even threatened to station new short-range missiles in Kaliningrad and to target their existing nuclear warheads at Europe. Many west European countries thought the whole affair epitomised both the Bush administration’s clumsy foreign policy and the destructive paranoia of the ex-communist countries in Europe’s east.
Now things are looking different. Barack Obama criticised the waste of money on “unproven” missile-defence technology during his presidential campaign. The Economist
With US President Barack Obama in office, he is beginning to court Russia on nuclear missile reduction. It appears that he will back down from moving forward with the Bush administration's planned European missile shield. This, I believe, is an attempt to court Russia to help rein in Iran's nuclear pursuits. This will be important in the future attempts at bringing a long-term cease-fire and eventual peace to the Middle East.
At the same time, Israeli Prime Minister hopeful Benjamin Netanyahu has declared, if he is elected, that he will topple Hamas. There is no doubt in my mind, if Netanyahu is elected, he will do what he says and drive Hamas from Gaza. This will certainly include a reoccupation of that area. I have to believe that Hamas will truly be motivated to agree to a long-term peace agreement shortly before or after his likely election in the coming days. I will keep you up to date on the developments of this situation.
North Korea is in the process of testing a missile that is said to be capable of striking the US. If this test proves successful, it will be interesting to see how much restraint the US exhibits from attacking North Korea's nuclear facilities as they have called on Israel to do with Iran.
But before everything unravels, I believe we are heading for a long-term truce in the Middle East so that the powers that be can work on creating a Palestinian state and bringing about peace. Could this be the time when the battle of Gog and Magog interrupts this time of peace as described in Ezekiel 38? The Bible does say that Israel will be living in a time of peace and safety within their own land when this battle commences. If this is the case, the Antichrist may come on the scene following this war and secure a seven-year cease-fire that addresses many nations. One thing is for sure, the Bible is true and this war is coming at some point. When is unknown, but I believe it will be soon.
