Prophecy Sign: The Gog/Magog alliance - Turkey
Turkey is no friend of Israel, and that shouldn't surprise the student of bible prophecy as Turkey will play a significant role in the last days, becoming part of the battle of Gog/Magog alliance of nations which will attempt to invade Israel.
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.

Ezekiel 38:4-6 NIV
