WAR DRUMS IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Very little in the affairs of men occurs by accident.  The destiny of nations are decided.  Great men rise and fall.  Revolutions sweep across peoples and regions.  It is all, to some degree orchestrated by the Powers That Be.  [Take the Arab Spring.  There was little that was organic or accidental about all of that.  We were planning with the rebel’s months before it occurred.  And the results just happened to fit the Pentagon’s New Plan for reshaping the region.  (We’ve covered that all before.)]  Still, it seems strange that this should come as much of a surprise.  After all, it’s the Middle East.  Yet with North Korean intransigence soaking up so many of the international headlines….but perhaps that was part of the plan.  Now all of sudden, the mainstream press is warning of impending war breaking out.  It is all starting with an escalation of the long-running feud between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

First there was a missile attack on the Saudi capital Riyadh from Yemen.  The Saudis are engaged in a proxy war there with Iran.  The Saudis called that attack – (which was handled by a US –provided anti-missile system) – “direct military aggression by the Iranian regime and may be considered an act of war.”[i]  Now the Iranians are from the Shia branch of Islam and the Saudis are Sunnis and there is no love lost between the two.  Add to that the fact that the Iranians are aligned with Russia and the Saudis are allied with the US.  Then it gets more interesting.  This last week, Prime Minister Hariri of Lebanon went to Saudi Arabia and promptly resigned his office.  It seems he was surrounded by police who ‘convinced’ him to take that action.  Robert Fisk described what happened in The Independent.  “Out of the blue and to the total shock of Lebanese ministers, Hariri, reading from a written text, announced on Saturday on the Arabia television channel ….that he was resigning as prime minister of Lebanon. There were threats against his life, he said – though this was news to the security services in Beirut – and Hezbollah should be disarmed and wherever Iran interfered in the Middle East, there was chaos. Quite apart from the fact that Hezbollah cannot be disarmed without another civil war – is the Lebanese army supposed to attack them when Shia are the largest minority in the country (many of them in the army)? These were not words that Hariri had ever used before. They were not, in other words, written by him.[ii]

And Israel just happens to have a stake in this too.  Michael Snyder writes: “As is already well-known, the Saudi and Israeli common cause against perceived Iranian influence and expansion in places like Syria, Lebanon and Iraq of late has led the historic bitter enemies down a pragmatic path of unspoken cooperation as both seem to have placed the break up of the so-called ‘Shia crescent’ as their primary policy goal in the region. For Israel, Hezbollah has long been its greatest foe, which Israeli leaders see as an extension of Iran’s territorial presence right up against the Jewish state’s northern border.  If Saudi Arabia and Iran go to war, it is probably inevitable that Hezbollah will strike Israel at the same time, thus getting the Israelis directly involved in the conflict.”[iii]

But it doesn’t stop there.  There is more going on.  The House of Saud is in the midst of a purge that is neutralizing its enemies within the kingdom.  King Salman appointed Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, a.k.a. MBS to serve as head of an “anti-corruption” commission.  And wouldn’t you know, MBS arranged the arrest of “11 House of Saud princes, four current ministers and dozens of former princes/cabinet secretaries – all charged with corruption. Hefty bank accounts are frozen, private jets are grounded.”  There are reports that this isn’t sitting so well with the army.  “A top Middle East business/investment source” told the Asia Times: “There are many left in the army against MBS and they are enraged at the arrest of their commanders.[iv]

What does it all mean?  It looks like the Saudis are consolidating their power as they move toward war with Iran.  They took the notable step of ordering all their citizens to leave Lebanon.  Kuwait followed suit hours later.[v]  Michael Snyder writes: “Many believe that this purge is all about removing any potential obstacles to a war with Iran.  Mohammed bin Salman and his father have made dealing with Iran their number one strategic priority, and they have even enlisted the Israelis as allies in their cause.”  This is a very dangerous game.  Both Iran and the Saudis have weapons of mass destruction.  Saudi Arabia is an important ally of the US in the region.  “It’s hard to see the U.S. being able to sit it out without at least some form increased weapons support and other aid. Then it will be up to Iran’s possible allies, like Russia and China to make the next move.[vi]

If Snyder is right and Hezbollah gets involved it could be the signal for the Psalm 83 War found in scripture.  Those verses describe an attack on Israel by a coalition of the inner circle of Arab states that surround her.  (Could Hezbollah bring along the others as allies?)  Perhaps just as significantly it matches the first leg of the Illuminati plan to create the chaos that will lead to WWIII and the subsequent rise of the New Age Christ (Antichrist) and establishment of the New World Order.  That scenario, as revealed in Peter Lemsurier’s Armageddon Script is to begin with a Middle East War which Israel wins, move to a nuclear confrontation on the Korean Peninsula that would “threaten the survival of mankind” and finish off with China moving on Taiwan.  That dark prophecy was written in 1980.  All of this would be accompanied by catastrophic terror, earthquakes, a financial crash and the revelation of alien contact or invasion.  We are advancing down all these roads.  In the midst of all this we can take comfort in the fact that God is in ultimate control.  “O Lord, God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. In your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand you.” (2Chronicles 20:6)
