‘Turkish Betrayal’ Is the Talk of Israel

Prophecy Sign:  The Gog/Magog Alliance - Turkey, (Ezekiel 38)

The fallout continues from reports that Turkey may have overtly exposed Israel operatives to the Iranian regime. We blogged about this a few days back, in which we identified Turkey as "Beth Togarmah", one of the cadre of nations that will align together to invade Israel in a last days war known as Gog of Magog.  It should not come as a surprised to students of bible prophecy to see Turkey move closer in alliance with Iran and further away from it's long standing friendship with Israel, as we enter the very last of the last days.

Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops--the many nations with you. Ezekiel 38:5-6 NIV

‘Turkish Betrayal’ Is the Talk of Israel
Beyond tightening tensions between Ankara and Jerusalem, the new reports also add to the narrative of the secret war between Israel and Iran that has been emerging in bits and pieces.  In January 2012, intelligence sources acknowledged to TIME that a young man who appeared on Iranian state television in 2011 confessing he had been working for the Mossad, had, in fact, been an asset for the Israeli intelligence agency. The chagrined intelligence officials said 24-year-old Majid Jamali Fashi, who was executed in May 2012 as a “Mossad spy”, had been betrayed to Iran’s security services by a third country, which TIME did not identify.   A subsequent Israeli investigation concluded that Turkey had not overtly identified the Mossad agents, but rather permitted them to be discovered by Iranian state security, either by possibly through their movements between Iran and Turkey, according to an intelligence official. 

'Erdogan uninterested in peace, reconciliation with Israel'
Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beytenu) said Saturday that "it is time that we stop deluding ourselves about Turkey and understand that it is not interested in having better [diplomatic] relations with Israel." The statement, posted on Lieberman's Facebook page, was made in the wake of a Washington Post report suggesting that Turkey had exposed an Israeli spy ring in Iran. "I was opposed to Israel's apology to Turkey because I thought -- as I do now -- that it would not yield any improvement in the relations between the two nations, and that it would only undermine Israel's position in the region and play into the hands of the radical elements in the Middle East, including [Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip] Erdogan, who is a radical Islamist," Lieberman wrote, referring to Jerusalem's apology to Ankara over the 2010 raid on the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara, which resulted in the deaths of nine Turkish nationals.

Let’s stop deluding ourselves about Turkey, says Liberman
Israelis must stop deluding themselves about Turkey’s willingness to improve relations with Israel, former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman said late Saturday, slamming Ankara for its latest claims against Jerusalem amid another marked deterioration in relations between the two countries. Responding to Turkey’s accusation that Israel was behind a “media campaign” against Ankara over the exposure of an Israeli spy ring in Iran, as well as past accusations, Liberman said the claims were “baseless” and served as proof that Turkey under Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan would never warm to Israel, despite the formal apology issued to Erdogan by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in March over the 2010 Mavi Marmara affair.
