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 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.”

Debkafile: ““We’re going to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead, but also isn’t entirely dependent on what we do,” said US President Barack Obama at a fundraiser at the home of former AIPAC head Howard Friedman in Baltimore Friday, Sept. 12.

That was one way of defining the turbulent cross-currents set off in the Middle East by the US president’s launch last Wednesday of his strategy for defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant with a broad coalition.

That was also exactly the kind of ambiguous comment, which the governments America is wooing to join the coalition, find so off-putting. The response of 10 Arab and Muslim leaders to Secretary of State John Kerry’s recruitment bid in Jeddah last Thursday, Sept.11, was therefore just as equivocal.”

Opinion: I’m not sure that there is any past coalition to compare this to. The president says he will destroy the non-Islamic Islamic state, appoints a United States general, then asks the rest of the world to provide boots on the ground.

Not one nation is buying it. Britain, our once closest ally, wants no part of the coalition and other key players are clearly not interested.

  • Jordan – Out
  • Turkey – Out
  • Germany – Arms to Kurds only

There are two prophecies to watch for; Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17. Since the prophecies were written 250 years apart by two different prophets, we can’t say for sure they are prophetically connected , but neither has happened and both appear imminent.

In our book, Antichrist: The Search for Amalek we placed Isaiah 17;1,14 during the 7 nation Arab assault on Israel. With the potential ISIS takeover of Assad’s forces, the destruction of Damascus may be near. Here’s why:

If the US-led coalition fails, the only army left with the capability to take out ISIS is the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). An Israeli entry into the fray could be the one common denominator to unite both Sunni and Shia to join Al Baghdadi’s quickly growing army and fulfill the Psalm 83:4 battle cry: “Come let us cut them off from being a nation so that the name of Israel is remembered no more.”

That Damascus will be destroyed from being a city in one night, could be accomplished by Israeli nuclear-tipped cruise missiles on board Dolphin submarines patrolling off the Syrian coast. Together with IDF tactical nuclear missiles from the air, this combination would have the firepower to devastate ISIS in a matter of days.

And the rest of the Arab armies will be like the “whirling dust, Like the chaff before the wind! Psalm 83:7.

Breitbart: “In spite of its promise to NATO to help fight the Islamic State, Turkey will not take part in combat operations against militants and will refuse to allow any US-led coalition to attack jihadists in neighboring Iraq and Syria from its air bases, a government official said Thursday.

Turkey is the only Muslim country in the coalition of 10 countries who agreed to fight IS at the NATO summit last week in Wales. Turkey is a logical staging area for NATO, as IS militants control large portions of Iraq and much of northern Syria along the Turkish border.”

Opinion: Here is the progress on the participation of the broad coalition so far:

  • United States – Air Force/military advisors – no boots on the ground
  • Britain  – willing to arm Kurds/no air strikes – no boots on the ground -
  • France – ditto
  • Australia – ditto
  • Canada – ditto
  • Germany – weapons and ammunition/ no boots on the ground or air strikes
  • Italy – ditto
  • Poland – ditto
  • Denmark -ditto
  • Albania – willing to arm Kurds
  • Kurds - boots on the ground/limited US support
  • Syrian Revolutionary Front-SRF – boots on the ground
  • Iraq - boots on the ground (as long as they don’t run away)
  • Saudi Arabia – funding for a training camp
  • Arab Emirates – unclear
  • Egypt – unclear
  • Qatar – unwilling to cut funding to terror groups
  • Turkey – A major ISIS supporter/will not participate

Saudi Arabia, the Emirates and Egypt are at odds with Qatar and Turkey because of the latter two countries’ support for the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups.

Kuwait and Qatar are unwilling to crack down on funding for ISIS.

Although Turkey is a NATO member, it is also and Islamic state. If the president expected Turkey to help fight the same terror group that they are supporting financially, then this administration is both blind and hopeless.

Bakr Al Baghdadi must be hysterical.
