Obama's strong anti-Israel stance and demand that Israel cease the legal building of housing in Jerusalem (as it impedes his plans to divide Jerusalem) has only served to rally and embolden these neighboring blood-thirsty enemies of Israel who want nothing less that the annihilation of the Jewish people.
This is all leading to the final fulfillment of Isaiah 17:1:
Isaiah 17 :1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
Notable is the fact that Damascus is the oldest, inhabited city in the history of the world so this prophecy has never been fulfilled. However, we can see everything lining up for Damascus, one day soon, to cease to be a city.
The very fact that most of the major terrorist organizations are headquartered in Damascus is like a bullseye has been painted on Damascus.
DAMASCUS, Syria – Tens of thousands of Syrians and Palestinians have gathered in a Damascus square in a government-orchestrated "march of anger" against Israeli settlements in east Jerusalem.
The crowd at the central Youssel al-Azmi square waved Syrian and Palestinian flags and pictures of Hamas leaders as they shouted anti-Israel slogans Friday.
Senior Hamas official Mohammed Nazzal condemned what he called Israel's "brutal aggression" on holy sites.
The U.S. and Arab countries want Israel to stop building Jewish homes in east Jerusalem — the section of the city that Palestinians want as the capital of a future state.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refuses, saying the entire holy city must remain Israel's eternal capital.
Residents of south Israel fear another war brewing
"Communities surrounding Gaza say death of two soldiers in Gaza Friday, along with continuous rocket fire, may be sign full-blown military conflict nearing. 'We don’t deserve to live like this,' Kfar Aza resident says."
The tensions are clearly increasing as the the looming Psalm 83 War draws nearer. Gaza is already bombarding Jewish communities with rocket fire which will will eventually have to be dealt with and which many Israeli's fear will lead to "full-blown military conflict".
Obama's recent abhorrent behavior towards Israel as well as the Aministration's chastisement of Israel for having "the nerve" to build Jewish housing in her own legal capital, evidences that Obama will no longer allow America to be Israel's ally.
The reason that Obama is applying constant pressure on Israel regarding her decision to continue to build Jewish housing (termed "settlements" by Obama) is because he intends to divide Jerusalem and east Jerusalem is the area that he intends to give away to the Palestinians.
This CANNOT be allowed as Jerusalem is God's Holy City and given only to His children of Israel. As such, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refuses to negotiate any divison saying," the entire holy city must remain Israel's eternal capital."We Might Need to Retake Gaza, Destroy Hamas
'Minister Yuval Steinitz of Likud warned Sunday that Israel may be forced to retake control of Gaza and topple the Hamas regime. In an interview with goverment-run Voice of Israel Radio, Steinitz said that Israel “will not tolerate” Hamas's growing rocket arsenal.
The minister's warning came two days after two Israeli soldiers were killed in a clash with terrorists in Gaza. Gaza terrorists have increased the frequency of their rocket attacks on southern Israel in recent weeks; several days ago, a rocket killed a Thai worker on a kibbutz [communal settlement].
Steinitz also discussed the United States's pressure on Israel regarding housing for Jews in Jerusalem. America's criticism of Israel is not advancing peace, but rather, is having the opposite effect, he stated.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has already made two significant gestures to the Palestinian Authority, by freezing construction for Jews in Judea and Samaria and by working to improve the PA economy, Steinitz said. By continuing to pressure Israel, the US is giving the impression that it is less friendly to Israel than it was in the past, which encourages the PA to up its demands, he explained."
If tens of thousands are angrily protesting Israel's LEGAL building of Jewish housing in her own capital just think what these deranged people will do if Israel "RETAKES GAZA" and "DESTROYS HAMAS". Hamas is the major terrorist organization which is currently the governing authority over Gaza, that has almost evolved into an anarchy,
Basically, not only is Israel NOT giving away part of of her Holy City, but instead they may actually take back the land of Gaza that has been under the Palestinians's rule since 1994~
This, in and of itsel
This multitude of nations that desire to "wipe Israel off the map" do not realize that the minute nation of Israel has the Great God of Israel as her protector. Furthermore, they are completely unaware that these current events were prophesied thousands of years ago so we know the ending: Israel will prevail!
Zechariah 12: 3 On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. 4 On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness," declares the LORD. "I will keep a watchful eye over the house of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. 5 Then the leaders of Judah will say in their hearts, 'The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the LORD Almighty is their God.'
