A terrorist leader says that the US troop withdrawal from Iraq will help Iran pulverize Israel

A retired Hezbollah general who is also a member of the Lebanese parliament says a total American pullout from Iraq will provide a land-bridge for a Shiite Muslim crescent headed by Iran and Hezbollah to pulverize Israel.

General Walid Sakariya says that the crescent would expose Israel to an axis of Iraq, Iran, Hezbollah, Lebanon, Hamas, and Syria so that the Iranian forces could cross Iraq and arrive in Syria to participate in a direct war in the Golan Heights against Israel.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A threat by the Iranian axis in the Middle East to attack Israel and pulverize the Jewish state is in lockstep with the prophetic scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy for these compatriots of Iran.

Iran's leadership, both their president Ahmadinejad and the supreme council made up of the Islamic clerics, the ayatollahs, have continually threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the earth over these last several years. At the same time, the war torn nation of Iraq is grappling with the decision of requesting US troops to stay in Iraq until there is more stability in the Iraqi government.

The present plan is for the US soldiers to totally leave Iraq which is the scenario that will allow Iraq to be the land-bridge for Iran to gather its allies, Hezbollah, Lebanon, Hamas, and Syria and attack the Jewish state of Israel. This scenario fits all aspects of Bible prophecy for the Middle East region and the present-day situation in that area.

Iraq, biblical Babylon, is a player in the last days according to Revelation 18, but will not be in the coalition of Arab and Muslim nations that will attack Israel. Iran, Syria, and Lebanon along with the terrorist organizations of Hamas and Hezbollah will be in the alignment of nations that will attack Israel, Daniel 11, Ezekiel 38, and Psalm 83.

The United States withdrawal of its soldiers from Iraq will indeed help set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
