BIN: Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is allowing senior Hamas terrorists to plot attacks against Israel from Istanbul according to a report in The Telegraph.
Written transcripts of Israeli police interrogations with the group’s terror suspects reveal that senior operatives in Hamas are using Turkey’s biggest city to direct their operations in Jerusalem as well as Judea and Samaria. This includes an assassination attempt on the mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Leon, earlier this year.
Israel has repeatedly informed Turkey that Hamas is utilizing its territory to plot attacks. However last weekend, Erdogan met with the group’s leader, Ismail Haniyeh, as well as Turkish intelligence officials who maintain close contact with Hamas terrorist operatives in Istanbul. “We will keep on supporting our brothers in Palestine,” Erdogan said in a statement.
O mortal, turn your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Prophesy against him Ezekiel 38:2 (The Israel Bible™)
Opinion: “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of[ Meshek and Tubal. 4 I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. 5 Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, 6 also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you”. Ezekiel 38:3-6 NIV
Motives for the three leading attackers, Russia, Turkey, and Iran of the Gog Magog war are becoming more clear:
Russia: The EastMed pipeline that will deliver natural gas from Israel to the European Union by 2025 will cripple Russia’s economy
Turkey: Recep Erdogan’s energy needs and hatred of Israel and open support for Hamas give Turkey all the motive it needs to join forces with Russia (from the far north)
Iran: The Mullah’s goal of ME dominance cannot be achieved with a nuclear powered Israel
Still developing is the motive for Cush (Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia) and Put (Libya). Maybe it has to do with an October 23, 2019 AP News report that Russia now sends more arms to Africa than any other country and the supply is rising, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
