Fatah’s party congress urged the Palestinian Authority leadership to move forward with its intentions to seek recognition of a PLO state based upon 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital by the UN General Assembly this September. The Muslim Brotherhood won the Egyptians elections. Last November, the US said that it would be satisfied if the Muslim Brotherhood won the Egyptian elections. Prior to 2009, the Muslim Brotherhood was banned in Egypt. President Barack Obama gave the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt 1.5 billion dollars in US aid in May. The leader of Egypt now is Mohammed Morsi. He was educated in the US going to college at USC. He has also been an engineering professor.  His two sons have US Passports. Campaigning in Egypt, Morsi said on May 13 to an election crowd: “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal.” Morsi also said: ““Today we can establish Sharia law because our nation will acquire well-being only with Islam and Sharia. The Muslim Brothers and the Freedom and Justice Party will be the conductors of these goals.” On June 7, he also said: “Jerusalem will be our capital, Allah willing. Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem with God’s will.” Our chants shall be: “millions of martyrs will march towards Jerusalem.” Obama congratulated Morsi for winning the Egyptian election by saying, “We look forward to working together with President-elect Morsi … to advance the many shared interests between Egypt and the United States.”

An agreement to divide Jerusalem and establish a PLO state is a tribulation event.

RED ALERT ON SYRIA: Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan has urged US President Barack Obama to lead an allied war offensive to remove Syrian President Bashar Assad from power. Turkey wanted Obama to create no-fly zones, attack Syrian government and military targets and establish safe zones for rebels and refugees. Obama replied the time had not yet come for direct US military intervention in Syria but that covert operations by American, British, Turkish and French special operations forces should continue inside the country. Meanwhile, British special forces helped rebel groups, including the Free Syrian Army, extend their control of territory in the Idlib province on the northern Syrian border with Turkey and Lebanon. Turkey has increased its military presence on the Syrian border. DEBKA reports Saudi Arabian troop movements toward the Jordanian and Iraqi borders. The Saudi units are poised with tanks, missiles, special forces and anti-air batteries to enter Jordan in two ways. One will safeguard Jordan’s King Abdullah against potential Syrian or Iranian reprisals from Syria or Iraq. The second will cut north through Jordan to enter southeastern Syriam, where a security zone will be established around the towns of Deraa, Deir al-Zour and Abu Kemal – all centers of the anti-Assad rebellion. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in St. Petersburg, Russia on Friday with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov over Kofi Annan’s latest proposal to remove Bashar Assad from power forming a transitional national unity government in Damascus that includes the opposition and excludes Assad. Lavrov said that Russia would not lend its support to any plans for outside interference in Syria. DEBKA reports that failure in US talks with Russia could cause a Western-Arab military intervention in Syria in the next few days.

A war with Syria where Damascus is destroyed (Isaiah 17)  is a tribulation event.

South Korea has said imports of Iranian oil will be suspended from 1 July because of  a European Union (EU) insurance ban on vessels carrying oil. Israel and the US are set to hold their largest ever joint military exercise in October, featuring thousands of soldiers and advanced anti-missile defense systems, and simulating simultaneous fire from Iran and Syria. Some 3,000 US soldiers are to participate, alongside thousands of Israeli troops. DEBKA reports that in the last ten days have seen a shift in US President Barack Obama’s negative position on military action against Iran’s nuclear program. Saudi King Abdullah and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu have been informed that Obama is in the process of “reconsideration.” His aides amplified this with a couple of ifs: If the state of nuclear diplomacy between the six world powers and Iran remains unchanged – that is, inert; and if the Syrian crisis remains unresolved, the US president will reach a final decision on the use of force against Iran in the first half of October – three and a half months hence. “It is already decided,” one high ranking Saudi prince told a visiting European official. The prince went on to say that we’re sure the American decision to attack is final and we are already making appropriate preparations. The question now isn’t if the Americans will attack Iran, but when.”

A US war with Iran is a tribulation event.

China continues the effort to not us the US dollar in bilateral trade. At this moment, China has signed trade agreements to not use the US dollar when trading with the following countries: Japen, Russia, Iran, India, Brazil and Chile. In what would seem as a currency war, the currencies of Brazil, Russia and India have declined as much as 10% against the US dollar so far this year and it is expected that the trend will continue.

Worldwide economic collapse resulting in a one world government with one-world currency is a tribulation event.

From a Biblical prophetic perspective, the reason why the God of Israel would allow these events to happen is because it will result in the end of the exile of the house of Jacob and the reunification of the 12 tribes of Israel (Ephraim and Judah).

We will to be “watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem” and we will not rest until the God of Israel makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth (Isaiah 62).

Shalom in Yeshua the Messiah,
