Israeli leaders say they still have great respect for Egyptian President Mubarak and call for world leaders to help maintain stability in the MidEast

Listen to Today's Program Play

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in his first public comments on the crisis in Egypt told his cabinet that Israel was anxiously monitoring the developments in Egypt and the region and he called on world leaders to join Israel in efforts designed to continue and maintain stability and security in the Middle East region.

Israeli President Shimon Peres said that his country has great respect for President Mubarak and he told the visiting Costa Rican ambassador that a fanatic religious oligarchy is not better than lack of democracy.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As Israeli leaders say they respect Egyptian President Mubarak who has worked to keep peace in the Middle East, I must remind you that Middle East peace is both good and bad, according to the end of times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak came to power soon after the signing of the Camp David Accords, the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. Mubarak has worked tirelessly to help maintain that peace over the last 30 years as he continually met with all parties to keep these fragile peace agreements together including the Oslo Accords, the peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. In reality, the Israeli government fears and Egyptian government replaced by an Islamic state that would abrogate the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty and most likely move against the Jewish state.

I mentioned earlier peace in the Middle East is good but it can be bad as well. Let me take a moment to explain. At the beginning of the seven year Tribulation period of great chaos in the Middle East, the world dictator, the Antichrist, will confirm - not sign - but confirm a peace treaty that is already in place, for example the Camp David Accords (Daniel 9:27). This will then be the beginning of the Egyptian military trying to destroy the Jewish state of Israel (Daniel 11:40-43). The good peace, real peace, will only come to the Middle East when Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, returns to the earth.

Remember, before that happens, there will be a false peace and Egypt will attack Israel. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
