The Israeli - United Arab Emirates Peace Accord may bring about a new Arab Spring

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: We were talking about the UAE-Israel deal and it may be the start of a real Arab Spring. Remember the Arab Spring a couple of years ago which ultimately ended up in destruction and the removal of political leaders from their positions of authority. But this United Arab Emirates-Israeli deal may start a new Arab Spring. That sounds like a positive doesn't it?

KT: Well Jimmy yes it would be a very positive thing if it actually happens. It's a bit early yet to know but what we are definitely seeing is a increasingly open and frank divide all across the Middle East not just in the Arab world but in Turkey and Iran as well. And you're having a new alliance begin to emerge where Israel has a growing relationship not just with the United Arab Emirates and that's a landmark agreement by the way, but with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Oman as well. These are countries that have all applauded the new peace agreement between the UAE and Israel. And I think as this grows your going to see people on the ground in the Middle East demanding that their leaders reject the kind of rejectionism that they had practiced for generations in the past. You can see this even in the Palestinian areas that would be a revolution in itself. 

But as I said the region is splitting into a camp that's working with Israel that is pro western, that is working with the United States and this really pro and neo Ottoman Empire led by Erdogan. Erdogan has been one of those who has vigorously rejected the peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. He said it's unacceptable and its spitting in the face of the Palestinian people. He wonders publicly, this is in the past but he said is Israel a Hitler more barbarous nobody knows and Persian imperialism sweeping through the region. So those two camps I think they are very important. A peace camp if you wish and a camp of war.

JD: Ken Timmerman on how the new Israeli-UAE Peace Accord in the Middle East may bring about a new Arab Spring.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The recent surprise announcement of the Israeli-UAE Peace Accord caught everybody off guard. There are those who appose this Peace Accord like the Iran, Turkey and the Palestinians. However most of the Arab world are open to normalizing relations with the Jewish State at least for now. However Psalm 83:4 reveals that the Arabs will in the future rise up to wipe Israel off the Earth and that is an absolute.
