Exiled-Muslim-Brotherhood-leaders-would-be-welcome-in-Turkey-Erdogan-266x200

Stratrisks: “Turkey would welcome exiled leaders of Egypt’s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood who have come under pressure to leave Qatar,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said. A Brotherhood official said on Saturday that several members of the group were relocating after Qatar came under enormous pressure from other Gulf Arab states to cut support for the Islamist group.

“If they make any request to come to Turkey, we will review their request,” Erdogan was quoted as telling reporters on his plane back from an official trip to Qatar late on Monday.

Opinion: It began on May 31, 2010. The Turkish flotilla, Mavi Marmara, set sail with Turkish commandos aboard to break the Gaza blockade that prevented weapons and tunnel-building material from reaching Hamas.

Israeli naval commandos boarded the ships from speedboats and helicopters in order to force the ships to the Israeli port of Ashdod to inspect for weapons. During the struggle, ten Turkish activists were killed, fracturing a 60-year relationship between Israel and Turkey.

On March 22, 2013 President Obama coerced Prime Minister Netanyahu to apologize to Recip Erdogan for Turkey’s act of aggression. Turkey demanded reparations which were offered and subsequently turned down by Erdogan.

In the recent 50-day Hamas/Israeli war, Turkey was a primary financier of Hamas.

The fracturing of the Israel/Turkey relationship lines up perfectly with Bible prophecy. In the war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39), Turkey (Gomer/House of Togarmah) is prophesied to join Russia, Iran, and a host of Islamic allies in a surprise attack on the mountains of Israel to take plunder (Ezekiel 38:13).

It will be a fatal mistake (Ezekiel 38:17-23).

Ezekiel 39:7-8 gives us God’s purpose for Israel’s miraculous victory:

I will make known My holy name among My people Israel. I will no longer let My holy name be profaned, and the nations will know that I the Lord am the Holy One in Israel. It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign Lord. This is the day I have spoken of.”

1410860710757_cachedThe Daily Beast: ” Iraq, Tehran was our silent partner, working to break an ISIS siege and edging out Maliki. But it’s not in Obama’s new coalition—and may try to destabilize U.S.-led efforts in Syria.

At the big table in Paris where 24 world leaders met Monday to discuss a war plan against ISIS, one nation was notably left out. But Iran claims it didn’t want to be there anyway, with supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei calling American pronouncements about ISIS “absurd, hollow and biased.”
Opinion: Sorting out major players Syria – Iraq – and … Israel, maybe?
In Syria:

  • Iran supports the Assad army
  • US supports the rebels (Syrian Revolutionary Front -SRF)
  • SRF is against Iran and Assad
  • Jabhat al-Nusra (al Qaeda) is against Assad
  • Iran and Assad are against ISIS
  • The US is against ISIS and to a lesser extent Iran and Assad

In Iraq:

  • US and Iran against ISIS
  • Iraq government against ISIS

In Israel:

ISIS, Assad, Iran and to a lesser degree, SRF, are against Israel

And at the end of the day, the blessing of Jacob (Genesis 27:28-29), whom God renamed Israel (Genesis 35:10), will be fulfilled:

“May God give you heaven’s dew  and earth’s richness— an abundance of grain and new wine. May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers,  and may the sons of your mother bow down to you.
May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed.”

Awesome.
