The Gathering Storm Clouds

The Re-Election of Prime Minister David Cameron took the pollsters and ‘experts’ by surprise. His Conservative Party won 331 seats (51% majority) in a surprise showing.

So what? So, Cameron has an uninterrupted 5 years in which to impact not only Great Britain but the world. Cameron is intensely pro-EU. He has been governing with the help of Liberals, the last 5 years. He no longer needs that help. A Referendum is pending, on membership with the E.U. Should they move closer to the German-led EU, we can expect Great Britain’s ‘Special Relationship’ with the U.S. to cool a bit.

In addition, Great Britain’s seat on the U.N. Security Council could be questioned along with her influence within N.A.T.O., which may then find Germany more dominant. Global finances are in play. British financial policies may also slowly evolve toward Frankfurt.

While all this is going on, the Middle East is changing. Israel is now touting Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and The United Arab Emirates as her ‘New Best Friends.’ The U.S., Canada, Australia and Germany are more estranged, these days, and the common threat these countries are experiencing is making ‘strange bedfellows.’

The World is ganging up on Israel with sanctions. They are coming from all quarters, both public and private, in the form of divestments and boycotts. Former CIA Chief, Gen. David Petraeus said, on Monday, May 11, 2015, that these represented a “strategic threat” to Israel, meaning her survival.

The Vatican just signed a Treaty with The Palestinian State. This treaty recognizes the Palestinian State and lends a powerful signal of moral authority and legitimacy to Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas. For the Vatican it is the Christian ‘Holy Sites’ which are in question. The Treaty is supposed to protect them.

Of course, the more legitimacy the Palestinians receive, the less inclined they are to work with Israel to resolve issues. In a speech, this week, P.M. Netanyahu said, “Our best allies actually these days are some of our Arab neighbors, because they know we face a common threat.” One wonders if he now considers The Vatican a ‘threat.’

The Roman Catholic Church has long been an enemy of Israel. She believes God has switched from Israel to Christians, in His program of Redemption. The Roman Catholic Church does not officially recognize any non-Catholic group as ‘Christian.’ This has pit Popes against Israel for millennia. During WWII, The Vatican was in league with Hitler, who was raised a Catholic.

On the other side of the Sinai is Iran, who managed to deliver SCUD missiles to the rebels in Yemen, right under the nose of the U.S. Navy. These are described, by security officials, as ‘Game Changers’ in the battle for Yemen and in terms of the Oil Fields of Saudi Arabia.

The Russian Navy has been aiding Iranian ships in their efforts to supply the insurgents in Yemen. Defense officials said the Russian Navy had been maneuvering to create a clear path for the Iranian vessels to by-pass the U.S. fleet, as it sought to dock in Yemen.

So, what do we see? We see Israel depending more upon their Arab neighbors than on The West. We see Russia actively aiding Israel’s enemies, against The West. We see The Catholic Pope becoming embroiled in this turmoil, seeking to protect Religious Shrines and Holy places. We see The West become more disenchanted with Israel.  And we see the Arab’s joining together against the common threat: Persia.

The Saudis have stated, openly, they will acquire nuclear capability, if Iran is permitted to continue enriching uranium. At this point No One Knows what the U.S. Negotiators have said and/or promised. Iran tells one story, the U.S. tells another, while the world is saying “A pox on both your houses!”

In the midst of all this are the Muslim Butchers, who have no loyalty to any government and want the world to be an Islamic Caliphate, so their ‘Mahdi’ (Messiah) can finally come.  They are not at any of the Negotiating Tables. They are out cutting off people’s heads.

Here at home, the majority have no idea any of this is going on, nor do they care. The Bible says that at The End of The Age, the global cry will be for “Peace & Safety.” Every Right, every Responsibility will be eagerly abandoned if we can just have Peace And Safety.

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  I Thess. 5:1-3
