JD: Looks like the report coming out of Egypt is that they are building their largest airbase in the entire country and it’s going to be located in the Sinai. Now some of the question is that to go after Islamic state or ultimately to go after Israel. What are your thoughts?
DD: They’ve been talking about building a new airbase in the Sinai for some time so it’s not a brand new idea. They’re excuse certainly is they’re fighting Islamic militants not only in the Sinai where they’re strongest in Egypt but also in the area and they may have to support the Saudi’s in any future conflict which is actually very true. The Sinai is the closest position to the Gulf and the Gulf States and Saudi Arabia.
It’s also of course closer to Iran. It’s on the eastern edge of Egypt so it would make any Egyptian involvement in any future conflicts with Iran a little more fightable. But of course it’s also along Israel’s border and as you point that out it’s making Israeli’s a little bit nervous but then again the things that can happen in the Middle East if there were a major assassination if there was something that set off the Moslem world entirely. Lets say a terror attack by a Jewish group on the Temple Mount or something. Something to that effect we could see the pressure on the Egyptians government to change course at any weapons they have to be used any which way but we’ll probably end up excepting it as just another fact of what’s going on in the Middle East. They have far more fear that some of these countries may start nuclear weapon programs, that’s always been their greatest fear.
JD: David Dolan with the details and the significance of Egypt’s largest airbase being built in the Sinai desert.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
In 1979 Egypt and Israel signed a peace treaty the Camp David Accords. Since that time there has been a shaky peace relationship between Egypt and Israel. However, Bible prophecy reveals that wont always be the case. Daniel chapter 11 is the prophetic passage that deals with future prophetic scenario in the Middle East. Daniel 11:43 refers to the King of the South and that has to be geographically the nation of Egypt.
The end time scenario in Daniel 11:40-43 reveals that Syria, King of the North and Egypt, King of the South will form a coalition to attack the nation of Israel. In fact, Syria and Egypt will lead that alignment of nations to try to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.
Now let me quickly remind you that prophetic scenario is indeed ready to be fulfilled.
