YNet News: Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri’s resignation and his harsh words against Iran create an opportunity to try to change the reality in our northern neighboring country.

I’m not talking about a military intervention, like the one Israel attempted in 1982, but about the creation of an international coalition that would pressure the Lebanese president to change the situation in his country.

Opinion: Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri’s resignation and his harsh words against Iran may be the perfect catalyst for an Iran/Hezbollah takeover.

Here’s why:

What is now modern day Lebanon had two ancient names, Gebal in the north and Tyre in the south. Based on the Psalm 83 prophecy, the Temple priest Asaph knew that southern Lebanon would be occupied:

The Psalm 83 alliance

For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:
The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;
Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Assyria also has joined with them;
They have helped the children of Lot. 

An inhabitant is an occupier. Notice that every nation in the alliance listed stands alone except Tyre. The Psalmist wanted us to know that the occupier would be in charge.
