- “There is no avoiding an escalating policy on the ground with great momentum from the masses, which will not allow the occupiers to live routine lives. Their occupation of our land must have a heavy price, which they will pay every day”
- “If we [Fatah and Hamas] consolidate our ranks and unify our internal front… then we will certainly defeat our enemy, which is Israel.”
Zaki in speech to Palestinian youth:
- “If this enemy [Israel] and America continue with their arrogance, then [our descendants will wave the flag] above Jaffa, the Negev, the Galilee, the Carmel, the Triangle, etc. Land that we don’t restore – we are not worthy of it.”
Opinion: The sad reality for these hapless Arab people is that when the Psalm 83 war is over they will be so destroyed that not one of the 7 nations will be capable of fighting in the Gog Magog war to follow.
While a lot of prophecy teachers agree on Gog Magog, many do not see Psalm 83 preceding it. One well known recognized scholar who was the keynote speaker at a Bible conference I attended a few years ago spoke of the prophesied Gog Magog war with much enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject.
Needless to say my ears perked up and I immediately made my way to the podium when the lecture was finished only to find a line waiting to ask questions. I was scheduled to attend another lecture and was pressed for time but I was able to ask one question. “What event do you see that would be so consequential that Israel would take down it’s security wall as prophesied in Ezekiel 38:11?”
The speaker looked at me with the surprised look and after a few moments admitted that he hadn’t given that much thought and would look in to it, at which time he was whisked away.
It is a big question. Israel living in a false peace would indicate that the PA, Fatah, Hamas and Hezbollah were gone, since it would be inconceivable that the Palestinians would not jump at the chance to pile on similar to their ancestors when the Babylonians attacked and ransacked Solomon’s temple in 586 BC.
“Remember, O Lord, against the sons of Edom
The day of Jerusalem,
Who said, “Raze it, raze it,
To its very foundation!” Psalm 137:7
And did they ever, Obadiah 1:1-18.
