Egypt Warns of Summer War

Egypt warns of war in the North

FM Gheit says tensions could deteriorate, denies calling Israel enemy state.

Egypt has issued a stark warning of a summer war between Israel and Lebanon. Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit passed on messages to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and representatives of the other permanent UN Security Council members, warning that the current Israel-Lebanon tensions could deteriorate into an armed conflict, Israel Radio reported on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, according to the radio station, Egypt denied Arab media reports that Aboul Gheit had called Israel an enemy state at a press conference in Beirut on Monday. Israeli Ambassador to Egypt Yitzhak Levanon had protested the alleged remark on Monday to the director of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry's Israel desk. In response, the ministry said that all Aboul Gheit had said was that he could not transmit messages from Israel to Lebanon since Lebanon viewed Israel as an enemy state.
The latest tensions between Israel and Lebanon arose after reports surfaced in Kuwait’s Al-Rai newspaper that Syria had transferred Scud ballistic missiles to Hizbullah. Israel subsequently issued a stern warning that it would consider attacking both Syrian and Lebanese targets in response to a Scud attack on its territory.
Lebanon’s Western-backed Prime Minister Sa’ad Hariri denied the allegations, comparing them to the American charges that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction ahead of the 2003 US-led invasion.However, the chairwoman of the US Senate’s Intelligence Committee warned that there was a “high likelihood” that Hizbullah had acquired Scuds.
Clinton has said the Obama administration is still committed to improving ties with Syria, despite its "deeply troubling" moves to aid Hizbullah.


It has been awhile since Egypt has blatantly spoken out against Israel. I believe there are a couple of reasons for this. First, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is dying. There is uncertainty as to who will replace him. Because of a growing radical Islamist element in Egypt, placing Israel in the cross hairs will "win friends and influence radicals." Egypt is also attempting to sucker the US into doing more to force Israel to divide itself. The threat of war always gets the peaceniks moving. Obama wants to be king of the world and the only way he can become the 'anointed one' is to achieve peace where no one else has....the MIDDLE EAST.

Second, the scenario has been written. Psalm 83 lists Egypt as a partner in a coming attack. Other coalition members are listed as well. They include Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. Zechariah 9-10, Zephaniah 2, Isaiah 17, Ezekiel 25, and Obadiah 15-18 tell us what will happen.

Will a war break out this summer? Only God knows. But if it does, courageous believers in Jesus Christ will be given the greatest opportunity in all history to usher people into the Kingdom of Heaven. The time to work while it is day is here NOW!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray for Muslims and Jews alike to find the truth of Messiah Yeshua. Look for opportunities to share your faith....and use the name of Jesus boldly when sharing. (No more "the man upstairs" or even using the germ "God." There are many ideas of God out there....but the name of Jesus is pretty clear.)
