Think about this possible scenario: Israel, in the near future launches an EMP strike over Iran to knock it back to the 19th century. Israel’s Muslim neighbors respond with conventional military power. Israel would have its hands full, fending off the Muslim hordes that would rally to the cause of retaliating against Israel. To prevent the battle of Armageddon from starting, the Super Powers stay out of the fray as they have in the past and allow the warring factions to settle their affairs. Even now Russia is pulling out of the arena along with the USA.
Conditions would be set for Turkey to step in and bring peace to the Middle East by removing the nation of Israel. They would take over Palestine and establish the capital of the Caliphate there on the Mount of Olives overlooking the Temple Mount. Daniel 11:45 would meet its fulfillment.
According to a Reuters August 10, 2012 news release, it appears trouble in the Middle East may soon escalate.
“JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's prime minister and defense minister would like to attack Iran's nuclear sites before the U.S. election in November but lack crucial support within their cabinet and military, an Israeli newspaper said on Friday.
“The front-page report in the biggest-selling daily Yedioth Ahronoth came amid mounting speculation - fuelled by media leaks from both the government and its detractors at home and abroad - that war with Iran could be imminent even though it might rupture the bedrock ties between Israel and the United States.
“Haaretz, an influential liberal Israeli newspaper, quoted an unnamed senior official in the Netanyahu government as saying the Jewish state - widely assumed to have the region's only atomic arsenal - potentially faced a greater danger from Iran than on the eve of its 1967 war with several Arab neighbors.
“That thinking seems to be gaining ground domestically.”
Turkey has a policy of Zero Problems with our neighbors. It looks like the only way to implement this policy is for Turkey to take charge of the Middle East through the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate (Daniel 11:45). Will the Caliphate be set up through might of arms or through diplomatic channels? I believe that we will soon know the answer to this question.
