Millions of Muslim worshippers marched around the Kaaba stone in Mecca, Saudi Arabia during the latest Haj pilgrimage (February 15) and prayed for the destruction of the state of Israel. About 1.5 million Muslim followers prayed intently as a Muslim Imam led the throng in a traditional prayer for the Glory of Islam, and communicated to the assembled that only through the killing of Jews, and those who assist them, will Allah reign supreme. The prayer of Mecca's throng seems to be the dream of most of the Arabic nations as well. The infamous PLO phased plan for the destruction of Israel also seems to fit squarely within the Islamic theological framework. The 1979 Iranian revolution which sparked the Fundamentalist Islamic Empire toward the goal of Islamic Glory, utilized its battle cry against Israel, and the friends of Israel, by labeling them as Little Satan (Israel) and Great Satan.

Just one week prior to the Islamic Haj pilgrimage, Jewish followers marched around the foundation walls of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The Jewish faithful prayed for God to work a miracle that would allow Jews to rebuild the ancient temple, and permit Jewish prayers to once again be heard on the historic sacred site. It seems very ironic to me that one million Muslims would flock to a rock in Mecca to seek forgiveness of sin, and pray for the annihilation of Jews that were seeking the right to pray on a hill back in Jerusalem. It would surely seem that God ( if Allah and Jehovah are the same) has made a mess of his own affairs, and conspired against himself.
But, it should never be lost on anyone's mind that there is indeed a “Great Satan” that seeks to thwart the Divine plan of God. Albeit, God will use Satan's own conspiracy of deception to crush the head of the evil serpent, and also all of the nations that render service to his conspiracy against the nation of Israel.
Romans 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
Ever since the deceptive ploy in the Garden of Eden, Satan has used every subtle and evil scheme within his employ to displace God almighty. Chapter 12 from the book of The Revelation reveals that the great conspiratorial scheme of the real Great Satan is the ultimately destruction of the woman Israel. It is therefore incriminating of the religion of Islam, and the God of Islam (Allah) that its aspiration to destroy Israel is synonymous with the aspirations of the Great Red Dragon.
Thus it is with absolute certainty that I can testify to people today, that peace for mankind rests with the outcome of the controversy over Israel, and the city of Jerusalem.
The attitude of the world regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is that Israel is the problem, and that Jerusalem should be a shared-world city. In reality, the problem with Israel is a problem with the Jewish people themselves. But, I would also point out a very important fact about the geo-political relationship of the world with God. The nations of this world are at enmity with the providential designs of God, in every aspect of life, and especially concerning the nation of Israel. Revelation 11:8 reveals that the nations of the Last Days will be angry with God because of Israel. Isaiah 34:8 and Jeremiah 25:31 also convey that the nations of this world have had a controversy with God relevant to the nation of Israel since that nation came into prominence.
Jeremiah 25:31-32 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.
Suppose for just a moment that the Muslim-Arab and Gentile powers of this world succeeded in their quest to destroy the nation of Israel. Imagine if you might, a scenario of political intrigue amongst the nations that covertly permitted Israel to be rubbed out of the Middle East by her many adversaries in the region. What would be the world's reaction? I can easily envision that the United Nations would not submit any Security Council resolutions critical of the forces that effectuated Israel's destruction. Indeed the UN has in its 57 years of existence passed over 600 resolutions condemning Israel for defending itself against its invaders. When one considers that the UN has issued about 900 resolutions in its judgments amongst the community of nations, and 2/3 of those resolutions have been against Israel, it is logical to assume that the UN would exult in the elimination of Israel from its membership altogether.
What would be Europe's reaction? Europe has already demonstrated its disgust of the Jewish nation as exhibited in the Holocaust. Europeans would ask for a brief minute of collective silence, sigh a sigh of relief, then roll up their sleeves and get back down to the business of Globalism, and world hegemony. Europe long ago bought into the Roman Theology that Israel is irrelevant in God's Divine restorative plans. Europe's foreign policy in the Middle East is based on self-interest. Europeans rarely these days do anything that is not calibrated in terms of economic windfalls, and avoiding trouble at any cost, and in that sense Israel represents a very bad deal. Europe sees Israel as an economic-diplomatic liability. Why worry about a few million Jews when one billion Muslims occupy the land reserves of the world's oil supplies? Who would you do business with? And at a time when Europe is uniting, a problem with the Arab world is not good! Why allow yourself to be targeted by radical fundamentalist Islamic suicide maniacs, over the issue of support for a tiny little nation called Israel! Europe is already engaged in forging a Trojan Horse scenario on Israel's backdoor, by pushing for a Palestinian State ahead of concluded negotiations with Israel. The EU, along with King Abdullah of Jordan is promoting the two-basket approach to resolving the Israel problem. In essence, Europe is cooperating with Islam to present a mirage for Israel's security, while in actuality it is putting Israel squarely in harms way with a new Palestinian State that is backed by an evil empire. Europe would exult with relief over the destruction of Israel!
Russia is looking to compete with the EU and the West for currying favors from the oil-rich Islamic Empire. Currently, the Arab world is without the necessary military components to destroy the nation of Israel because the United States stands in the way.
Israel is a worthy stand-alone adversary, but the alliance-friendship of the American card is enough to sway the Arab world from confronting Israel one-on-one. Therefore the Arab-Islam world must acquire help from Russia and China to take on, and remove the American card from Israel's quiver. Russia would greatly enjoy the demise of America, and therefore leap at an opportunity to parlay the Arab world, and coordinate an assault against Israel at an opportune moment. ( Ezekiel 38 ) So, Russia would love to see Israel destroyed also!
Historically, the Muslim world has been mystified as to why Americans support the existence of Israel. It is for this reason that we so often hear Arabs say: We don't hate the American people, it is just the policy of your government that we hate! You are too beholden to Israel! The Arab street pronounces that it is the responsibility of the United States to force Israel into compliance with world's resolutions, and into political step with the designs of world conformity. The United States has never been a colonial power in the Middle East, as Europe has been, and the U.S. has developed relationships with all the countries of the Middle East. But unlike Europe it has not yet turned its back on Israel at the behest of Israel's oil-rich enemies. Therefore, America finds itself in the bulls-eye of Islamic Terrorism!
Will America join the evil scheme of the Great Red Dragon, and join in the conspiracy of the nations against Israel? Would America someday rejoice over the destruction of Israel? There is a great deal of controversy today regarding America's labeling the potential adversaries of Israel as being an “axis of evil”! It sometimes seems that the world's problems would vanish if Israel were simply eliminated.
But Israel will never be destroyed. Israel is the hope of the world! If Israel were permitted to be destroyed, the Great Satan would indeed reign supreme!
Psalms 38:19-21 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is. Forsake me not, O Lord: O my God, be not far from me.
Psalms 21:8-11 Thine hand shall find out all thine ( Israel's ) enemies: thy right hand
( God's ) shall find out those that hate thee. Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them. Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
The Great Satan, and all who cooperate in his conspiracy against God, and against his chosen nation shall be cast into the Lake of Fire!
