Iranian Navy Sends Ships To Suez Canal

by Dr. Michael D. Evans

In a rare move, Iran's navy is planning to send two warships through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean Sea and then on to Syria. Israel is carefully monitoring the ships, currently sailing in the Red Sea as they prepare for their transit. An Israeli Naval official said, "It is strange for the Iranian Navy to use the Suez Canal since it really doesn't have anything to do in the Mediterranean Sea."

Israel's Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, called the move a "provocation that proves the overconfidence of the Iranians is growing from day to day." The move by Iran is just the latest in a series of escalations of threats posed by the radical Islamic regime against the Jewish state. Iran is also hosting an Islamic Unity Conference this weekend in Teheran for radical Islamic jihad organizations from around the Muslim world to unite them in their efforts against Israel.

At the same time, the United States has signaled that it will support a United Nations declaration condemning Israel. The declaration says the world body "does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity." US backing for such a criticism of Israel is a striking departure from past support. In a move that will not surprise any careful observer of the situation in the Middle East, Arab leaders declared the American condemnation of Israel "unacceptable" because it doesn't go far enough!

A war is being fought today in the spirit realm even as I write—as ancient prophecy and modern-day conspiracy collide. You and I must realize this is a wake-up call from hell and take a stand. It is described in Isaiah 14:12-15: "For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north...'"

This fall the UN is preparing to unilaterally and officially proclaim a Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital. This action will be taken not far from where Islamic terrorists flew fuel-laden airplanes into the World Trade Center Towers and killed 2,752 innocent men, women, and children and almost exactly ten years after that dreadful attack.

The Jerusalem Prayer Team have launched the "Save Jerusalem" Campaign — a national media initiative to sound the alarm to alert Bible-believing Christians to the danger posed by this plan...and to urge them in speaking out against it.
