Israel Strike on Iran: Could "Ignite Mideast"

Once again, we see the title to a news article which appears to be lifted straight from the pages of the Bible:

Hezbollah official: Israel strike on Iran could ignite Mideast"

This article is also interesting in terms of its content - and the content also looks like it was lifted directly from biblical prophecy. Quotes below:

"Violence could spread across the Middle East with Israel paying a "heavy price" if it launched military action against Iran, the deputy leader of Hezbollah said on Thursday. "

"Israel sees Iran's nuclear program as a threat to its existence and has not ruled out military action if diplomacy fails to curb the Islamic Republic's atomic work."

"Israel or the United States cannot just bomb Iran and [expect] things to continue normally," Sheikh Naim Kassem told Reuters. "Any attack on Iran could ignite the whole region and the assailant will pay a heavy price whether its Israel or the United States."


This is interesting, because the scenario that is described in the article above looks a lot like the scenario that many prophecy watchers have described - and one that I believe could be a distinct possibility.

If indeed Israel were to strike Iran's nuclear facilities, the regional Islamic groups surrounding Israel would be outraged beyond anything previously seen. In this scenario, it is easy to see fulfillment of certain end times prophecies, such as Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39.

That time is drawing closer by the minute.
