The political leadership of Israel has been watching very closely the ever changing landscape in the Middle East, a result of the unrest in the Arab street throughout the entire region. Israeli PM Netanyahu has been most concerned about what is happening with the direct neighbors of his nation, countries like: Syria, Jordan, and Egypt. With the removal of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, plus the unrest in Syria and the almost civil war in Jordan, things are changing.

These changes were foretold by the ancient Jewish prophet Daniel 2500 years ago. In Daniel 11:40-43, the Jewish prophet revealed the activities of all three Israeli neighbors: Syria, Jordan, and Egypt for the last days. Syria, referred to as the King of the North in verse 40, will make the first move against Israel. Jordan, mentioned as Ammon, Moab, and Edom in verse 41, will provide protection for the Jewish people, Isaiah 63.

Egypt, found in Daniel 11:42-43, will join Syria to try and destroy the Jewish state. Truly, unrest in the Middle East is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.<a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/stealthblack6?feature=mhum">http://www.youtube.com/user/stealthblack6?feature=mhum</a>

 Editor: I love God but that book gets this world into an awful lot of trouble don't you think?  Do you spend much time with tea leaves?  Our futures are what we make of them Joe, let's get past Biblical prophesies because they haven't helped us a great deal, have you noticed?  There is one God, there are several religions, they worship the same creator.  This is so much simpler than people will simply let it be.  You get so many years, you are here to help others in your lifetime, if everyone did this the world would be a much better place.  And any group that kills innocents for its 'security' be damned.
