The Times of Israel: “Cairo is fuming over increasing cooperation between the Palestinian terror group Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, and Islamic State-affiliated forces in the neighboring Sinai Peninsula, The Times of Israel has learned, despite attempts in recent months to alleviate the tension between Egypt and Gaza.

That cooperation has seen injured IS fighters routinely brought into the Strip for treatment, alongside ongoing weapons smuggling over the border.

A few days ago, Cairo discovered that a group of IS fighters wounded during an attack on Egyptian Army soldiers – they were planting explosives on the beach at Al-Arish – were transferred to hospitals in Gaza for treatment.”

negevOpinion: It interesting that Amalek’s tribes also came from the same desert area of the Sinai.

Jewish Virtual Library: “The Amalekites were a people of the Negev and adjoining desert (Sinai) that were a hereditary enemy of Israel from wilderness times to the early monarchy. Amalek, a son of Esau’s son Eliphaz, was presumably the eponymous ancestor of the Amalekites.”

Amalek was the first enemy that the Israelites encountered after crossing the Red Sea. In the battle at Rephidim (a place in the desert), as told in Exodus 17:8-13, the Amalekites attacked the Israelites encamped in the desert but were defeated.

The Israelites were led in the battle by Joshua, while Moses, Aaron and Hur watched from a nearby hill. Moses noticed that when his arms were raised the Israelites gained the upper hand, but when they were down the Amalekites prevailed. Moses sat with his hands held up by Aaron and Hur until sunset, securing the Israelite victory.

The most decisive clash between Israel and Amalek took place 400 years (1100 BC) later when God instructed king Saul through the prophet (1 Samuel 15:1-3) to kill all the Amalekites: men, women, children and animals.

Saul disobeyed and God kept Agag, the king of Amalek, and choice animals alive as a trophy.

As a result, the blood of Amalek, grandson of Esau, turned up some 700 years later in Persia (modern day Iran) in Haman the Agagite (Esther 3:5-6).

And isn’t it interesting that Amalek, the only person in the Bible that God swore to have war with generation after generation (Exodus 17:16), is teaming up with Hamas (Hebrew for violence) today.

Egyptian foreign minister visits Jerusalem to push Cairo-backed diplomatic process

 Bible prophecy, Egypt, Jerusalem, Land for peace, New World Order, Two State Solution  Comments Off on Egyptian foreign minister visits Jerusalem to push Cairo-backed diplomatic process
Jul 112016
 

JPost: “Egypt placed itself firmly in the middle of the diplomatic process between Israel and the Palestinians on Sunday, as Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry arrived in Jerusalem and said before meeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the Egyptian leadership is “serious” in its determination to “provide all possible forms of support” toward achieving the goal of a two-state solution.

Shoukry, on a visit kept from the public until the last minute, was the first Egyptian foreign minister to visit Israel since Ahmed Aboul Genit – today the secretary general of the Arab League – did so in 2007. Diplomatic officials said that this indicates a growing willingness on Egypt’s part to make public its strong relationship with Israel.

The Egyptian foreign minister met for two hours with Netanyahu in his Jerusalem office in the afternoon. Two hours later – at 8:30 – the two had a private dinner at Netanyahu’s official residence.”

Opinion: Egypt’s goal:

“A two-state solution through negotiations between the parties that will reach an agreement based on “justice, legitimate rights and a mutual willingness to coexist peacefully in two neighboring independent states in peace and security.”

How nice. And all Israel has to do is:

  • Go back to the 1967 borders making Israel indefensible
  • Make East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount a Palestinian capital in violation of Isa 2:1-4, Ez. 37: 26-28. Dan. 9:27. Micah 4:1-7, Zech. 6:12, Mat. 24:15, 2 Thess. 2:3-4, Rev. 11:1-2.

The Times of Israel: “Egypt condemned Israel’s recent announcement of new building in East Jerusalem and the West Bank in response to the uptick in Palestinian terrorism as “unjustified and incomprehensible,” saying the move served to undermine ongoing international efforts to resume the peace process.

The Israeli escalation is unjustified and incomprehensible, particularly because it coincides with regional and international efforts aimed at encouraging Israelis and Palestinians to build an environment of trust in order to resume negotiations,” Cairo said.

Opinion: Somebody needs to tell Egypt’s president, Abdel el-Sisi, that Israel’s population is going to explode.

According to a Reuters News report in September 2015: “Israel’s birth rate is the highest in the developed world”.

“The average Israeli woman has three babies in her lifetime, nearly double the fertility rate for the rest of the industrialized countries in the OECD. That, accompanied by heavy Jewish immigration from the former Soviet Union, has seen Israel’s population double in the last 25 years.

The birth rate is even higher among Israel’s Arab community.”

When you factor in the growing anti-Semitic climate in Europe, and particularly France, the potential for hundreds of thousands of Jews to immigrate back to the land is growing.

Prophetically, Israel will welcome all Jews from around the world at the conclusion of the future war of Gog and Magog as told by Ezekiel 38-39.

God clearly says He will leave none behind Ezekiel 39:28.
