Breaking Israel News: “Now almost everyone is talking about the Islamic State threats in Gaza against poets, writers and women. The leaflets mention the poets and writers by name — a move that has created panic. The leaflets also include an ultimatum to Palestinian women to abide by Islamic attire or face the Islamic State style of punishment — presumably being stoned to death.
Of course, all this is taking place while Hamas continues to insist that that the Islamic State is not operating in Gaza. Those who are taking the threats seriously are the writers and women whose names appeared in the leaflets.
Islamic State flags can already be seen at football stadiums, on windshields of vehicles, mosques, educational centers and wedding invitations.
It is also clear that if and when the Hamas regime collapses, the Gaza Strip will not fall into the lands of the less-radical Palestinians.
It is important to keep in mind that the counties in Europe now voting for a Palestinian state may effectively be paving the way for a takeover by Islamic State.”
Opinion: ISIS, a new piece of the Psalm 83 prophecy?
Last week we wrote of the Arab alliance (minus 1) prophesied by the temple priest Asapf approximately 3000 years ago.
One member of the alliance is the Hagrites, named for Hagar, the mother of Ismael; Hagrites or modern day Egyptians are considered North African – not Arabs.
Let’s review again:
- Edom (Esau): Judea or West Bank (Palestinian authority)
- Moab and Ammon: Central and Northern Jordan
- Amalek: Arabs of southern Israel and the Sinai
- Ishmaelites: Saudi Arabia
- Hagrites: modern-day Egypt
- Philistia: Gaza, (Palestinians of Hamas – Amalek)
- Gebal: northern Lebanon
- Assyria: Syria including Kurdish (northern) Iraq
- ‘Inhabitants’ of Tyre: modern-day Lebanon (Hezbollah)
Some prophecy scholars claim that the Hagrites are a tribe dwelling approximately 300 miles northeast of Egypt, east of Gilead.
The Hebrew is word is Hagri suggesting a matronymic relationship to “Hagar” the Egyptian matriarch while Ishmaelite is easily recognizable as Abraham’s first son who settled in Saudi Arabia.
Assuming we have Hagar and Ismael correct we can turn our attention to Philistia or modern day Gaza. Originally the Philistines (Goliath) sailed from Crete to Israel in the 6th century BC and assimilated into Canaanite culture from whence Esau took his wives.
The Philistines today are Palestinians represented by the terror group Hamas. If Hamas merges with ISIS as did al Qaeda, and by default, sub groups Al Nusra (Syria) and the Egyptian branch Ansar Beyt Maqdis (ABM), Psalm 83 then may be dominated by ISIS controlled sub-groups, making it an all Arab assault.
“They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” Psalm 83:4
