redThe Washington Examiner: “President Obama said he sent a U.S. aircraft carrier into waters near Yemen to try to settle down the conflicts in the region with a show of American force.

“You know, ultimately, when it comes to the seas, we are obviously the dominant force and we’re coordinating closely with all of our allies in the region, sending a message that rather than another conflict in the region, we need to settle this down,” Obama told MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews in a pre-taped interview that aired Tuesday night.

While the president stressed that the U.S. generally keeps some of its ships in the Persian Gulf region to maintain “freedom of navigation,” he also suggested that the U.S. Navy could take action if Iran continues to deliver weapons to Houthi rebels inside Yemen.

Debkafile: “Local reports of mysterious underground explosions in northern Israeli locations on the Lebanese border are confirmed by Israeli troops on field exercises in the neighborhood. They attest to heavy earthmoving equipment, explosions, burrowing and shaking ground on the Lebanese side of the border, giving the area the appearance of a huge subterranean building site.

Hizballah has undoubtedly taken a leaf out of the Hamas book of terror and mobilized fully and efficiently for a major tunnel-building project. Israel seems curiously passive in the face of its enemy’s dangerous enterprise.”

map-golan-syria-lebanon-israelOpinion: Both Hamas (Philistia) and Hezbollah (inhabitants of Tyre) are represented in the war of Psalm 83. Our peace partner, Iran, is busy supplying both but is not represented as a combatant until the War of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39).

Since both terror groups are known to have over 100,000 combined rockets pointed at Israel, and will be joined by Palestinians of the West Bank, Arabs of the Sinai, Saudi Arabia, Arab factions from Egypt and Jordan it would be easy to assume that Israel will be wiped out.

Not so fast…

In Psalm 83:9 the prophet implores God, “Deal with them (7 nation Arab alliance) as with Midian.” The battle at Midian can be found in Judges 7.

God raised up a deliverer named Gideon who had a confrontation with an Angel of the Lord who confirmed him as a mighty warrior. Gideon was told to go and save Israel from Midian’s hand.

Gideon objected saying his army was weak, but God reassured him that He was with him after granting a sign with the tip of his staff.

And the Lord said to Gideon, The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’ Now therefore, proclaim in the hearing of the people, saying, ‘Whoever is fearful and afraid, let him turn and depart at once from Mount Gilead.’” And twenty-two thousand of the people returned, and ten thousand remained.

Gideon’s army was further reduced to 300 men that were split into groups. God told Gideon to divide the 300 into three groups of 100 with the unusual weapons of trumpets and empty jars with torches inside. At the critical moment the Israelites were told to blow their trumpets and break their jars making a loud noise giving the impression of a larger army.

The miraculous confusion of the Midianite army caused them to turn on each other with their swords while the Israelites watched in safety around the camp; and the Midianite army fled.

And that same miraculous confusion is found in Ezekiel 38:21-22 “I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother.  And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. “

The Daily Caller: “The USS Theodore Roosevelt is moving toward Yemeni waters to intercept any Iranian ships attempting at delivering weaponry to Shiite, Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The warship will join other American ships prepared to halt attempts at arming the Houthis. According to The Associated Press: “There are about nine U.S. ships in the region, including cruisers and destroyers carrying teams that can board and search other vessels.”

Opinion: Times like these make me wish I had paid better attention in history class. Then I would be better able to draw historic comparisons of the similar insanity of negotiating peace with a nation that says and acts like it would rather kill you – daily.
