From 2011 with relevancy for today:
The West still doesn’t understand how Iran rules the Middle East.
Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism by far, has bludgeoned its way into controlling Lebanon and Gaza, and has become the backbone of Syrian terrorism. Iran also bombed and butchered its way into the dominant role in Iraq and Afghanistan (after America thought it had won those wars), and now is empowering the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists to get control of Egypt.
Now America and the West have paved the way for another Iranian victory in Libya. We are rejoicing about the overthrow of Libya’s Muammar Qadhafi, while we should be mourning. Libyan chaos is now the ideal setting for Iran to bring that nation into its deadly terrorist web. The government that replaces Qadhafi will be a thousand times worse.
And you can prove this is going to happen! (More on that later.)
Egypt’s Revolutionary Change
Egypt is rapidly moving into the Iranian camp. That means Egypt, which borders Libya, will now help bring that nation into Iran’s terror network.
Already violence has broken out between Israel and Egypt—after 30 years of peace. Why the big change since President Hosni Mubarak resigned due to massive protests? That is a subject the mainstream media does not like to discuss.
The Muslim Brotherhood has joined forces with the powerful Egyptian military. It clearly is the dominant force inside Egypt, and is getting more control daily.
That means Egypt is in for a radical change, which we have been prophesying for 20 years.
President Mubarak was severely warning U.S. diplomats about the Iranian “cancer” spreading throughout the Middle East in 2009. Not only did our government not heed the warning, but at the same time, President Obama was meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House!
That information should send shivers through the body of any American who understands what is happening in the Middle East!
“With the upheaval in Egypt, the only successful Middle East peace treaty is in jeopardy,” William L. Gensert wrote in American Thinker. “The Egyptian border crossing into Gaza is now open and Hamas is very happy; it’s so much easier getting weapons without the prying eyes of the Israelis. Iranian warships, banned since 1979, have been allowed to transverse the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean. … Egypt, once considered a strong American ally, is now drifting within the Iranian orbit. …
“For years, Iran has been an ardent supplier of arms in Afghanistan to al Qaeda and the Taliban. Weapons and bombs supplied by Iran were used to kill American soldiers, yet our president says nothing” (August 14).
President Obama even claimed some of the credit for Mubarak’s expulsion. “What we’ve seen so far is positive,” President Obama insisted at a press conference a few days after Mubarak resigned. “I think history will end up recording that at every juncture in the situation in Egypt that we were on the right side of history.”
On the right side of history?
Historians could think that America actually supported worldwide terrorism and nurtured nuclear war!
There should be no doubt that Iran is going to start a war. That is why its getting nuclear weapons is such a critical issue.
More than any other nation, America has helped the terrorists succeed!
Violence Against Israel
The New York Times wrote in its August 20 edition, “The crisis has been the sharpest signal yet that the revolution that toppled President Hosni Mubarak in February is transforming the three-decade-old relationship between Egypt and Israel that has been the cornerstone of Middle Eastern politics.”
This newspaper is right in saying that the 30-year relationship between Israel and Egypt has been “the cornerstone of Middle Eastern politics” (not just between those two nations). The cornerstone means the basic element or foundation of Middle East politics. That means when this relationship unravels, the foundation of Middle East politics unravels!
That is no small problem because Iran is reaping most of the benefits.
The New York Times sees this crisis as “the sharpest signal yet” that the revolution in Egypt is “transforming” the peaceful relationship between Israel and Egypt into an Israeli nightmare!
But it’s much worse than that. It shows that Egypt is already allying itself with Iran in its bloody terrorist war.
This has the potential to cause the Middle East to explode and drag all the Earth’s inhabitants into World War iii!
The New York Times article had this headline in that August 20 edition: “Nations Race to Defuse Crisis Between Egypt and Israel.” Nations race to help solve this problem because they know how deadly the potential is for the entire Middle East to explode.
There have also been five bombings of an Egyptian pipeline, which delivers vitally important natural gas to Israel. All of the bombings have happened since the revolution began in Egypt. That is another “sharp signal” that this part of the “Arab Spring” has already produced some bitter terrorist storms!
And this is only the beginning of sorrows!
Before he left office, Hosni Mubarak had this to say: “They [the dissenters] may be talking about democracy, but the result will be extremism and radical Islam.”
How precisely prophetic that statement was. But we dared not listen to Dictator Mubarak.
He spent his whole 30-year reign suppressing radical Islam in his own country. So he should understand this better than any man alive!
Libya today is in total chaos. Reports say there are al Qaeda fighters there along with Hezbollah terrorists and even some militants from Afghanistan and Iraq.
Another report said that about 20 percent of the suicide bombers in Iraq came from Darnah, a city in eastern Libya.
nato knows almost nothing about who these dissenters are and who will rise to power. But always lurking in the background is an oil-rich Iran with the will to send some of its leading warriors into Libya. Still, nato wants to just bomb Libya and go home. This makes Iran’s bloody work much easier!
That nation has the proven will to do whatever is required to win. The only thing the U.S. has left is a broken will. Nobody at this stage has the will to stand up to Iran. (Request our booklet The King of the South. All of our literature is free.)
The King of the North
The king of the south, Iran, is about to clash with the king of the north, a European Holy Roman Empire. The book of Daniel was written only for this end time (Daniel 12:4, 9).
“And at the time of the end shall the king of the south [Iran] push at him: and the king of the north [the Holy Roman Empire] shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land [Jerusalem], and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps” (Daniel 11:40-43). The Moffatt translation states that “at his steps” means following in his train! Egypt is not going to escape the king of the north because it is allied with Iran. The same applies to Libya and Ethiopia (which will probably be the next Middle East explosion, which Iran is going to exploit).
Libya was the world’s 12th-biggest producer of oil before the uprising began in February. It provided 1.4 million barrels a day to Europe—Italy, Germany and Spain.
That means crisis in Libya causes a certain panic in Europe. The Europeans know that Iran could get enough control in Libya to use the oil as a weapon against them. Also, Libya is in a very strategic location on the Mediterranean Sea, through which the Middle East oil flows.
Iran knows how much more clout an oil-rich country can add to its power in the Middle East.
We have warned since 1992 about Iran getting some control of the oil in Iraq. Now Iran has the greatest influence in Iraq of any country.
All of these events are going to cause the European Union member nations to go from 27 kings to 10, so they can become a united and aggressive superpower (Revelation 17:12-13). Then Europe will clash with Iran and win. (Request our free booklet Germany and the Holy Roman Empire.)
These terrifying events lead to the most exciting event ever to occur on this Earth or in the universe: the return of Jesus Christ (read Daniel 12). He must return or there would not be one man, woman or child left alive (Matthew 24:21-22).
What a magnificent future we have awaiting us. But before that happens, we are going to experience the greatest suffering ever on Earth. ▪
