Mideast on Fire: Jerusalem the Center of a Coming 'Perfect Storm'

Prophecy Sign:  The future Middle-East war(s) - Gog/Magog, Psalm 83

O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” Psalm 83:1-4 NIV

Mideast on Fire: Jerusalem the Center of a Coming 'Perfect Storm'
Since the dawn of what is known as the Arab Spring in 2011, the Middle East has gone through profound and historic changes, killing hundreds of thousands of people and forcing millions of others from their homes. Some believe the region could be on the verge of regional war with global consequences.  In just the past three years, the ISIS terror army conquered huge areas of Syria and Iraq, Iran struck a landmark nuclear deal with the rest of the world, Russia made its biggest military move into the Middle East in decades, and two main rivals within Islam -- Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran -- appeared on the brink of war. Israel's former national security advisor describes what is happening in the Middle East now as a "perfect storm." He believes a series of events are converging that will create a situation far more dangerous than the individual events themselves. Sitting right in the center of the Middle East storm is the nation of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.

World War III Starts In The Middle East? Saudi Arabia And Turkey Consider A Ground Invasion Of Syria
Thousands of refugees are currently flooding out of Aleppo as the Russians bombard the surrounding area continually.  There is little hope that the Sunni forces that once were so optimistic about overthrowing Assad can hold out much longer without help. As the situation becomes increasingly desperate, Saudi Arabia and Turkey are now considering what was once unthinkable – a full-blown ground invasion of Syria. Of course this could very well set off World War III in the Middle East, but Saudi Arabia and Turkey have already invested so much in this conflict, and they don’t appear to be willing to throw up their hands and walk away now.
