Senior IDF officers say Israel is surrounded by global Jihad

For a number of months, security officials in Israel have warned that al Qaeda and global Jihad were slowly closing in on the Jewish state and were attempting to establish terror cells in the Palestinian territories.

Senior Israeli Defense Force officers and security officials meeting at the Israeli military headquarters in TelAviv, said in a recent briefing that the latest terror attacks in Egypt, though not in Israel, are evidence that global Jihad is surrounding Israel. The fenceless Egyptian-Israeli border is a delicate situation and Israeli security officials admit expanding numbers of infiltrators are getting through undetected into Israel on a daily basis.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The word coming from Israeli military headquarters in TelAviv that the Jewish state is surrounded by global Jihad and al Qaeda is evidence that Bible prophecy may be near to fulfillment. When senior IDF officers at Israel's military headquarters are concerned and say that the recent terror attacks in Egypt's Sinai region are another sign of global Jihad's encroachment on Israel, one must take notice.

Military intelligence believes Sinai has turned into an al Qaeda hotbed whose terror cells were behind all of the latest Sinai terror attacks. Israeli security officials are aware that the al Qaeda presence in the Sinai poses a threat not only to Egypt, but also to the Neged Desert region of Israel and possibly even to Central Israel.

This report is evidence that the present scenario in the Sinai of Egypt is setting the stage for the prophetic scenario for this region to be played out in the future. The ancient Jewish prophets Joel, Daniel and Ezekiel bring to the table prophecy that speaks to this issue. Joel in chapter 2 verses 2 and 3 tells of a massive army, the largest army ever assembled on the earth, that will surround Israel and then attack the Jewish state. Ezekiel 38 and Daniel 11 reveal the nations that will join together to attack Israel, nations who today have aligned themselves against Israel and buy into the concept of global Islamic Jihad.

These statements from Israel's military headquarters in TelAviv do indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
