“Israel sent two more warships to the Red Sea border with Egypt, the military said Tuesday, part of a military reinforcement there following warnings that militants are planning another attack on southern Israel from Egyptian soil.”
YNet News, WEDNESDAY AUG. 31:
“The Israeli Navy (INF) has decided to boost its presence and patrols near Israel’s maritime border with Egypt due to a viable terror threat in the area, as Iran announced it was set to send its 15th fleet to the Red Sea as well to “convey message of peace and friendship to all countries”.
There were two terror attacks against Israel. In the first attack on August 18, 8 Israelis were killed. In the second attack, on August 29th, 7 Israelis were wounded. Escalation was inevitable. Meanwhile, Egypt is demanding apologies from Israel for perusing the attackers into Egypt which resulted in a confrontation
with Egyptian police, killing as many as five. Iran is showing a message of peace and friendship?
Joel Rosenberg once said that the twin towers of the Middle East are Iran and Egypt. Between the two countries are over 170 million people. We know how Iran feels about the Jewish state but… consider the danger if Egypt’s 80 million people were to turn against Israel as well.
If the progressive left is correct that only 10% of Egyptians are radical, which cannot possibly be, that still makes 8 million radicals that Israel needs to be worried about. That is approx.1 million more people than live in Israel today.
If Egypt takes a radical Islamic turn like Iran, three Biblical wars against Israel come immediately into focus. The invasion of Israel described in Psalm 83:1-8 should be first up and includes Egypt but not Iran. The Iranians are involved in the second war described in Ezekiel 38:1-13 but not Egypt. But Egypt leads the King of the South against the Kings of the North (Iran/Russia) in the final war of Armgeddon just before the return of Christ, Daniel 7:7. 11:40 and Rev.16:12.
It is astounding how the Biblical armies are lining up exactly the way the prophets said they would right in front of our eyes. Remember just 6 months ago, Egypt had a long-standing treaty with Israel and was at peace. I remember a pastor who, when he got excited about the Bible would say, ‘Somebody call somebody!’
