I wrote on Monday that over the weekend the Obama Administration instructed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to reach out to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood was banned as an illegal organization in Egypt for decades but once Mubarek fell they popped up quickly and were almost instantly acknowledged as a legitimate political party in Egypt. In another act over the weekend, no coincidence I’m sure, Obama also listed Israel on the list of ‘Specially Designated Countries’ as a terror-sponsor. Now, the Brotherhood’s sworn aim is to obliterate the ‘cancer’ that they say is Israel (and also destroy the West, namely, the US). They would also love Egypt to return to a state of war with Israel. Currently the only Arab States that have have a peace treaty with Israel are Jordan and Egypt. And do not forget, it was the Muslim Brotherhood who assassinated Former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat for making peace with Israel.
Well, the response from the Muslim Brotherhood didn’t take long. Today we learn that in an email to Clinton, quoted by Bloomberg News, the Brotherhood wants the US to stop supporting Israel. Israel Magazine Today reports, “In an email response quoted by Bloomberg, Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Ghozlan stated that if America wants solid relations with the group, it should “stop supporting the corrupt and tyrannical regimes, backing the Zionist occupation and using double standards.” Israel National News also has the story.
The time of Zechariah 12:2 is rapidly advancing, when Israel will be alone in the world without one friend on earth. Praise the LORD that His promises are true, and He remains a friend to the People until the end. And in the end, His friendship is all that matters. Look at Ezekiel’s vision of the Millennium Kingdom, which is ushered in after the Tribulation and battle at Armageddon: (chapter 43:1-2)
“Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east: And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.”
