World Net Daily: “Powerful U.S. ally Saudi Arabia has been a driving force behind the scenes, pushing for the U.S. to act militarily in Syria.
The Saudis already have been secretly helping to fuel the insurgency to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the two years that the uprising has been going on. And it was reportedly the Saudi security services that alerted the U.S. to the first claim last February of a sarin gas attack by Assad’s regime.
Now the Wall Street Journal has detailed a massive Saudi lobbying effort to push the U.S. to act in Syria.
The Journal fingered Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, as leading a campaign to convince Congress and the White House to expand the U.S. role in Syria.
The newspaper reported an original Saudi goal was to secure U.S. support to train the Syrian rebels at camps in Jordan.
The Saudis were apparently successful.
Opinion: This one was obvious, what with the famous bow and all. But, what’s next? Depending on the Bible’s timeline and pending announcements from oil drilling in the Levant, a prophetic oil find would be just the ticket to enrage the entire region and set up a regional war.
Psalm 83:1-8, an Arab alliance of 7 nations, led by the Edomite nations of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Sinai, Egypt and Saudi Arabia would be up first.
The world’s new Russian Czar and his Iranian buddies will be watching. After the total defeat (Obadiah 1:18) of the Arab alliance and the peace treaty is signed (Daniel 9:27), Ezekiel’s war of Gog and Magog would be the last gasp effort to wipe out the Jewish state and secure oil dominance.
The fulfillment of four prophecies could lead to Psalm 83: ”
Genesis 49:25: “From the God of your father who helps you and by the Almighty who blesses you with blessings from Heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath, blessings of the breast and the womb.”
Deuteronomy 33:19: “They will summon the people to the mountain, and there offer sacrifices of righteousness, they will feast on the abundance of the seas, and on the hidden treasures of the sand.”
Deuteronomy 33:24: “And of Asher he said, Let Asher (one of Jacob’s 12 sons) be blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil.
Isaiah 45:3: “I will give you treasures of the darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the Lord God of Israel, who calls you by your name.”
