CLASH Along the Border

Psalm 83 lists a series of names that correspond with people groups living as neighbors to Israel. Where the groups lived is more important than the groups themselves. It is the land, and who lives on that land now, that matters in the prophetic sense.
With that it mind, let's see who the prophet is speaking of.
Asshur and Ammon occupied today's land area of SYRIA.
Moab and Edom occupied what is now Jordan and parts of Saudi Arabia.
Ishmael is Saudia Arabia and the areas surrounding it.
Gaza is.....Gaza So is Philistia and Tyre
Gebal and Amelek are Lebanon
Hagrites were a group living in today's Egyptian Sinai near the Red Sea....
According to the Pslamist/Prophet, these nations will ally themselves against Israel some time after the rebirth the nation. Basically, the same nations are mentioned in Isaiah 17, Ezekiel 25, Obadiah, Zephaniah 2, and Zechariah 9.
In the Ezekiel 25 passage, God declares he will destroy these nations "by the hand of my people Israel."
Yesterday, rockets were fired at the Israeli resort city of Eilat on the Gulf of Aqaba. Those rockets, which killed a Jordanian tourist, were fired from the Egyptian Sinai, the same area where arms are being smuggled into Gaza for Hamas fighters.
Today, Israel and Lebanon got into a tussle along the border.
I am one of a growing number of prophecy watchers that believe a war between these nations and Israel must take place BEFORE the Gog/Magog War of Ezekiel 38 and 39. The result of this coming battle will allow Israel to regain the ancient boundaries of Solomon's regain, and will possibly be the hook that brings the Magog Coalition to the mountains surrounding the new, greater Israel. Signs are proclaiming that the Psalm 83 war could soon break out.

Serious border clash leaves Israeli, Lebanese army casualties
DEBKAfile Special Report August 3, 2010

The border tensions brewing between Lebanon and Israel in recent weeks boiled over Tuesday, Aug. 3 into a heavy exchange of fire between troops on both sides of the border. IDF casualties are reported by foreign sources. The Lebanese report three soldiers and several civilians killed, as well as a number injured.The exchange developed after the Lebanese army opened fire on Israeli troops, using mortars and RPGs. Israeli tank artillery retaliated, followed by IDF helicopterswhich attacked Lebanese firing positions.
An Israeli complaint to the United Nations holds the Lebanese government responsible for attacking Israeli troops whose work on the Israeli side of the border was coordinated with UN peacekeepers. debkafile's military sources report indications in Beirut and Jerusalem that, despite UNIFIL's call on both sides to exercise "maximum restraint," the incident which flared at 12:30 p.m. may not be over.
On the Israeli side, helicopters, tanks and artillery are in action and all Lebanese units in the south have gone on full alert since President Michel Suleiman, at two p.m. called on the Lebanese people to be prepared to lay down their lives to defend their country and UN Security Council Resolution 1701 which terminated the 2006 war with Israel.In Jerusalem, Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu urgently consulted with security chiefs on Israel's response to what it sees as Lebanese aggression. The possibility that the Lebanese soldiers who began the shooting were Hizballah gunmen disguised in military uniform is under investigation.The incident flared when they ordered Israeli troops to stop installing a surveillance camera on the border fence near Kibbutz Misgav-Am opposite the Lebanese village of Adeisseh village. They accused the Israeli soldiers of encroaching on Lebanese territory. When the Israelis replied they had kept to their own side of the border and refused to back down, the Lebanese started shooting.
According to debkafile's military sources, the clash was staged deliberately by the Lebanese side to divert attention from the radical change in the balance of power in Beirut as a result of President Bashar Assad's abrupt switch of patronage from Hizballah's Hassan Nasrallah to Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri. To read debkafile's earlier article on the events leading up to this outbreak, It coincided with a 'major speech' expected later Tuesday by Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Iranian-backed Hizballah, and came a day after six missiles were fired towards the Jordanian port of Aqaba and Israeli Red Sea resort of Eilat, killing one Jordanian.
