[This may be one of the most significant articles written in months - in terms of what it reveals. Iran now has a direct corridor to Israel's northern border. It is so easy to see an initial proxy war between Israel's "inner circle" of bordering nations and terrorist groups - thus fulfilling Isaiah 17, which will be followed by the big invasion of Ezekiel 38-39. The stage is so clearly being set. Watching prophecy unfold in this way just confirms the literal nature of prophecy. Also note the very last sentence in this article. We know from the prophets Zechariah and Ezekiel that Israel will indeed be left alone to face their adversaries. Once again, you just shake your head in amazement at the fulfillment of prophecy in this manner.]
Over the past months, while the western media has been obsessed with the latest tweet of President Donald Trump, there have been disturbing developments in the Middle East. Storm clouds are gathering on Israel’s horizon that will one day pose a grave danger to the security of Israel.
In a speech given this June, Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah warned that a future war with Israel, “…could open the way for thousands, even hundreds of thousands of fighters from all over the Arab and Islamic world to participate – from Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan”.
Nasrallah was not hallucinating.
Over the past years, the notorious Major General Qassem Suleimani, the head of the elite Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), has been quietly working to create a land bridge from Tehran to the Mediterranean.
Since the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War in 2011, Iran has provided the Assad regime with massive financial support, an endless supply of ammunition and weapons and tens of thousands of fighters from its Revolutionary Guard Corps and from its loyal proxy, Hezbollah. In addition, Iran has recruited, trained and deployed thousands of loyal Shia militants from Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere to Syria. Thanks to the more recent addition of Russian air power, the future of Bashar al-Assad now seems secure.
