Gaddafi: March on Israel

It is interesting to see Libya back in the news for several reasons. First of all, many prophecy scholars believe that Northern Africa including Libya is part of the coalition which will invade Israel in the Gog-MaGog battle/war. I believe this is quite possible.

Secondly, we are starting to see the few remaining moderate nations beginning to crumble into the hands of radical Islamic leadership and control. Both Iranian leader M. Ahmadinejad and now Libyan leader M. Gaddafi are urging more of these "uprisings" while the momentum is in their favor.

Sooner or later this turmoil will reach Israel, and now we see Gaddafi already urging Arabs to march on Israel in mass:

Gaddafi to Arab 'Refugees': March on Israel

Libyan dictator Muammer Gaddafi has called for a mass Arab march on Israel, in an attempt to force Israel into accepting Arab demands. He directed his call to Palestinian Authority Arabs and to the millions of Arabs who define themselves as “Palestinian refugees” that seek to “return” to Israel.

“Fleets of boats should take Palestinians... and wait by the Palestinian shores until the problem is resolved,” Gaddafi said on Libyan television. Now is the time for PA Arabs to capitalize on the wave of Middle East revolts, he added.

Just so we don't feel left out, the U.S. gets included here:

'The West is our Enemy'

In the same speech, Gaddafi called on the Muslim world to unite against the non-Muslim world. The “Western world,” including the United States and Europe, has gone on the attack against the Islamic world, he said.

While he called for Muslim unity in fighting the West, Gaddafi had criticism for several Muslim leaders – those who have some form of relations with Israel. “All Arab states which have relations with Israel are cowardly regimes,” he declared.

We'll see where this goes.

Ultimately, we know how this story ends. It ends according to Ezekiel 38-39, scriptures which describe the massive invasion - consisting of this growing coalition of Muslim states - united against Israel in complete hatred and a desire to destroy Israel once and for all.

God Himself will save Israel from this imminent destruction and He will do so in a dramatic way. He sums it up in Ezekiel 39:21.

"I will display my glory among the nations, and all the nations will see the punishment I inflict and the hand I lay upon them."
