:"(The original version of this paper was presented to a joint session of the Biblical Theology/Religion, Culture and Communication/Ethics and Social Theology groups on 5 July 2007 during the annual Tyndale Fellowship Study Groups Conference, Cambridge. Several useful comments made during the ensuing discussion are reflected here.)": If someone pressed us to identify a major conflict zone in the world today, the Middle East would likely top the list. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict especially has been a leading actor on the geopolitical stage for years, with rival powers and a cacophony of competing voices making this one of today"s bitterest conflicts. Jews and Palestinians vie for power, land, and even the right to exist, while two religions make rival claims to the land, with Christians siding with one or other and shouting from the sidelines. Moreover, strategic geographical and geopolitical considerations (much like during Old Testament times) cause outsiders to intervene and exacerbate the crisis. Add to this rival political and religio-political ideologies played out through the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, whether Zionist, Palestinian, or pan-Arab nationalisms, Marxist anti-imperialism, the view of Israel as a democratic oasis within an authoritarian desert, or Islamic anger at Israel"s very existence on Muslim land. :"(Also known as a waqf, or bequest from Allah.)": In short, the conflict is bitter and immensely complex, and one could be forgiven for gloomily giving up and moving on.

If you are a student of God's Word you know that Israel is the center of His Word in Prophecy, and when God says in reference to Israel the Apple of His Eye in Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. God is not kidding or joking around, He is very serious. In fact, I have never read anywhere in His Word where He said something that He didn't really mean. And just for your information Israel is the apple of God's eye now and always will be. And if you are a gentile and want to make it to heaven you will have to be grafted into the natural roots and the promises given to Israel by God's Grace through faith in your acceptance of the Jewish Messiah, the Bible you read is a Jewish Book and your way to heaven is through Yeshua the Jewish Messiah. Many have been lied to, but there is no other Gospel that will secure your soul in a relationship with God for eternity, and if you have accepted any form of replacement theology it will send you directly to hell.
Current Middle East Developments and Bible Prophecy
The Middle East is in turmoil.Ã‚ Ã‚ War has erupted across the border of Israel and Lebanon while the killing in Iraq brings in a daily toll of victims.Ã‚ As the region supplies most of the world's oil, what happens there is of vital importance to the rest of the world. Behind the scenes there is a momentous conflict taking place between Iran and its allies and the United States and its allies.

Okay I am going to say it straight out, Gen. 12:3 is very plain and it is time to look at what is happening in a very real and spiritual way.
George Bush"s Road Map to Hell is against the Word of God, the Disengagement of Gaza forced on Israel by the US President has caused much suffering to the Jewish people and it has been a curse to Israel. He is now talking about the necessity of Israel giving more land to the "Palestinians" , he simply will not stop until Israel has been destroyed for that was his deal with the Islamic Arab world.

Moriel agrees with the content and thrust of this particular article. This should not be interpreted as an implied endorsement however of everything the author and his ministry believe in other areas.
(Note: Some of these warnings were first written in an article I wrote called "The Trojan Horse.") This article is an updated understanding based on the current conditions (2007) within the evangelical church in the Western world - G.R.)

President Woodrow Wilson:"Some of the biggest men in the U. S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." :"(President Woodrown Wilson,The New Freedom (New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1913), Chapter 1. )":
President Franklin Roosevelt: "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson... " :"(Written by President Franklin Roosevelt in a letter to Col. Edward Mandell House, President Woodrow Wilson's mentor and adviser, November 21, 1933.)":
Real conspiracies -- in contrast to mere theories -- have spawned fear, murder, lies, and revolution throughout history. Driven by greed, envy, or utopian visions, they reflected the darkness of human nature. No nation or empire has been immune to such intrigue. Betrayal, murder, and convenient wars stain the records of ancient Israel and Judah as well as the history of mighty empires like Assyria, Babylon, Persia, China, Greece, and Rome. :"(See Man's Conspiracies & God's Victory at http://www.crossroad.to/HisWord/verses/topics/conspiracy.htm)": The nations of Renaissance Europe -- always competing for dominion and commercial markets -- were torn by the same human impulses.
