THE MIDDLE EAST MAY SOON ERUPT INTO WAR-the beginning of the end...

The Middle East is a powder keg with a short fuse. It appears that recent events are pointing to the fuse being lit very soon.

Recent legislation shows that the Mideast "peace" process appears to have reached an impasse as neither the Palestinians nor the Israelis will give on the stumbling block, Jerusalem.

In that day I will make Jerusalem a stumbling block for all people; all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth gather against it."  Zechariah 12:3

Israel has just recently taken the volatile matter of the "land for peace" negotiations out of the hands of a few politicians and put it into the hands of the people.

The Arab League is avidly denouncing this new move, as is the Palestinian Authority and Syria. These enemies of Israel well know that if the fate of Jerusalem is is up to the citizens of Israel, that their desire to possess Jerusalem will never be come to pass.

"The Arab League on Wednesday condemned Israel's new law requiring a referendum on land concession as "illustrating the aggressive character" of the Israeli government and its "disregard for international law."Israel "continues to place obstacle after obstacle to harm efforts to renew the peace process," Deputy Arab League chief Ahmed Hali said."

"The Arab League on Wednesday chimed in with its reaction to Monday's Knesset passing of Israel's National Referendum Law, requiring the approval of 80 MKs or a national referendum before any Israeli withdrawal from east Jerusalem or the Golan Heights.

Calling it a "provocation," a spokesman for the League's secretary-general's office said that law undermined the peace process and efforts to reach an agreement."

Imperative to note is the fact that the Arab League called Israel's new stance a "provocation". 

This new law may be the tipping point that finally provokes the many enemies of Israel to attack her. They have been preparing militarily for such an attack for months. 

Probably the only reason they have restrained themselves thus far is because they were depending on either Obama or the UN to demand that Israel comply and unilaterally disengage. Their ultimate goal is to carve Israel into a much smaller Israel with indefensible borders. 

Therefore, their primary objective is to remove Israel from being a nation. So, a barrage of missiles towards the civilian populations of Israel is planned regardless of how much land Israel is willing to give in exchange for "peace".

Psalm 83:4"Come," they say, "let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence."

These Muslim neighbors are aware that at least while the decision to give away Jerusalem was in the hands of select few, there was still a chance that the Obama administration could possibly arm-twist Prime Minister Netanyahu behind the scenes.

These Arab enemies appear to be cognizant that this prospect of Israel being coerced into just releasing Jerusalem into their hands is now fading fast with this new legislation requiring a referendum vote. 

If a super majority in the Knesset (the Israeli legislative body) cannot be reached, then the citizens of Israel will cast the deciding vote.

In the Knesset, the recent passage in favor of this controversial new law was 65 to 33 . It is therefore conceivable that a similar ratio would be reached in the Knesset against conceding Israel's Covenant land to the Palestinians. In this instance, the decision would then land in the hands of the Jewish people.

This clever new legislation by Israel, combined with her previous proven determination that dividing Jerusalem was not on the table and would never be, is proving to the Palestinians and all of their allies that Jerusalem will never be willfully given up to them.

 "The Israelis want to tell the whole world that they will not withdraw from Jerusalem or the Golan," Abbas told reporters on Tuesday at the opening of the new headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Ramallah."

 "The statement also said that the law is designed for "those that still under the illusion that the Israeli government is interested in peace."

Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat on Monday slammed the Knesset's decision and reiterated the sentiments put forward by Syria and said that "with the passage of this bill, the Israeli leadership, yet again, is making a mockery of international law"

Israel's enemies may actually contort this new development as an excuse to attack her; saying that Israel proved that she was not interested in ever negotiating for"peace":

"  the  law is designed for those that still under the illusion that the Israeli government is interested in peace."  

They are no doubt fully aware that the Obama Administration can no longer force Israel's hand with coaxing or threats as it is not up to the leadership anymore, but to the population of Israel.

Previously, the United Nations had proposed setting a deadline for a Mideast "peace treaty". The UN had also formulated that if upon the set date no treaty is negotiated; that the United Nations will decide the terms of the treaty. In other words, the United Nations will tell Israel what to do.

"Calling for a return to Israel's borders before the 1967 war in which it occupied the West Bank, Gaza, and other territory, Solana said mediators should set a timetable for a final peace agreement, according to the report.

"If the parties are not able to stick to it (the timetable), then a solution backed by the international community should be put on the table," he said, as quoted by Reuters."

Eventually(if not already), those who despise and oppose Israel may conclude that Israel will also defy the UN's efforts to give away her promised land; just as she has refused to "cave" to the demands of the the United States.

If the United Nations attempts to dictate its will upon Israel then Israel, as a sovereign nation,  has the right to resist. Israel has proven to the international community that she has the steadfastness and wherewithal to do so.

With this realization, Israel's enemies may finally conceptualize the fact the Jerusalem will never be given to them on a silver platter and that they will have to forcefully take it by military conflict if they want it.

These many enemies of Israel who have attacked her seven times since her miraculous rebirth in 1948, have many millennia of hatred seething beneath the surface and would not think twice about attacking Israel yet once again.

This hatred runs so deep that these Arab countries' goal is not just to take Israel's land, but they want the very demise of the Jewish people. 

Therefore, a military assault on Israel may actually be seen as achieving both of their goals at the same time.

The recent confrontation between North Korea and South Korea may well be an impetus that will encourage the Arab nations to spring to action. 

If further confrontations ensue, it may be seen as perfect timing as America, as South Korea's ally, would be occupied and unable to come to Israel's aid.

This future military conflict between Israel and her neighbors is predicted in the Word of God and will be the fulfillment of Psalm 83. 

The Psalm 83 War is not a matter of if, but when and as evidenced by all the recent news, "when" appears to be extremely soon.

For details of the coming Psalm 83 War, please see this previous entry:

When the fuse is finally lit in the Middle East and the powder keg explodes, we can anticipate that  surely the Lord's return is very soon.

Israel's is God's prophetic timepiece and the initiation of the Psalm 83 war may well be the event that starts the Tribulation clock to ticking.

Until then, may we pray for God's chosen people as well as for the many other lives that will be lost during this soon coming prophesied war.
