Islamist Super-Bloc Begins Forming in the Middle East

Prophecy Sign:  The Gog/Magog alliance of Islamic states

The Prophet Ezekiel was given a vision of a coming end-times war which will see an alliance of Middle Eastern Islamic states lead by a nation from the northern most parts, (Russia), come against Israel in an invasion attempt.

Turkey, (Beth Togarmah), and Iran, (Persia), will be key players in that alliance.  Interesting to read how these two nations are now at the head of forming an Islamist super-bloc, (the Gog/Magog Islamic alliance??).

The word of the Lord came to me:  “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog,the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. 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 38:1-6 NIV

Islamist Super-Bloc Begins Forming in the Middle East
A monumental strategic shift is taking place in the Middle East as an Islamist super-bloc is forming. Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood are making up with Iran and Hezbollah. Egypt and the Gulf states are forming their own alliance. The U.S. outreach to Iran and the Brotherhood has left it missing from the equation. The Syrian civil war has pitted the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey against Iran, Hezbollah, Iraq and the Syrian regime since 2011. Now, with a bloody stalemate resulting in consequences each side fears, the two sides are looking for ways to make amends.

Turkey has been trying to move its relationship with Iran past the ancient Ottoman-Persian rivalry for years. The Erdogan government gave secret U.S. intelligence to Iran and in early 2012, informed Iran about ten of its nationals meeting with Israeli intelligence inside Turkey. One of the architects of the Turkish-Iranian relationship is Turkish intelligence chief Hakan Fidan, who the Israeli Defense Minister described as a “friend of Iran.” Some Israeli officials privately refer to him as the “station chief in Ankara” for Iranian intelligence.
