Osama Bin Laden has called for an Islamic holy war against the peacekeepers in the ravaged Darfur area

In a message that appeared on Pan-Arab satellite news channels Al-qaida leader Osama Bin Laden called for an Islamic holy war, jihad, against a proposed peacekeeping force in Sudan's war-torn region of Darfur.

Bin Laden called on those living in the areas surrounding Darfur, especially the Arabian peninsula, to drive out any foreign forces in the region saying that it is the duty of the people of Islam in Sudan to perform jihad, holy war, against the crusader invaders and wage armed rebellion to remove those who let the, into the region.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A call for jihad, an Islamic holy war, against peacekeepers in Sudan's Darfur region, is an end times scenario that fits the scenario found in Bible prophecy for the last days.

Over the past several years hundreds of thousands of Sudanese Christians have been killed in the Darfur region of war-torn Sudan. Even secular humanist in the world have cried out against the atrocities being carried out in Darfur and are pleading for a stop to the killing by Sudanese Islamist of Christians and even other Moslem's living in the Darfur region.

Bin Laden's declaration that these peacekeepers are crusaders and must be stopped by the Moslem people, in other words they must be met by jihad, holy war, is a perfect fit for Bible prophecy that refers to this area.

Sudan is one of the nations that will join a coalition of nations to endeavor to destroy the Jewish state of Israel in the last days, Ezekiel 38:5.

Islam, though not mentioned by name in the Bible is a part of the coalition that is formed, and the lowest common denominator of the members of that coalition who come against Israel in the last days, Daniel 11, Ezekiel 38 and Psalm 83.

The ancient Jewish prophet Joel, chapter 2, verses 3 and 4 of his prophecy speaks of a "Mighty Moslem Militia" that will come to power in the last days to kill Jews and Christians.

Bin Laden's call for jihad, holy war, in Sudan's Darfur region is indeed the prophetic scenario that will be fulfilled in the last days. It seems that this Bible prophecy could be fulfilled in the very near future.
