Peace For Israel! There are claims that “there is no longer an Arab-Israeli conflict” (1) A Saudi Arabian newspaper declares that Israel’s enemies are Turkey and Iran, not the surrounding Arab countries. It is stated that those who are still attacking Israel are sponsored terrorists supported by Turkey and Iran. The newspaper article says that if Israel wants peace, now is the time.
Saudi Arabia and the other Arab countries certainly would be wise to seek peace with Israel. Israel is God’s chosen nation. If the Arab nations choose to fight against Israel, they are choosing to fight against God. You can be sure if the Arabs continue to fight against Israel they will be the losers.
I personally do not believe that all of the Arabs around Israel truly want peace. If they truly want peace, they should stand arm and arm with the citizens of Israel against their foes who are being supported by Iran and Turkey. A true friend would not let their friends get harmed by murderous enemies. The speeches of Saudi Arabia are nice, but military actions against the enemies of Israel would be better proof of the Arab’s goal of peace with Israel.

The Arabs have offered false peace to Israel before. Israel would be rightly skeptical of the Arabs offering an olive branch of peace. Arabs have been enemies of Israel for many centuries. The Arabs often carry an olive branch of peace in an out reached hand. But, behind their back they carry a sword of death for Jews. I commend Saudi Arabia if they are truly seeking peace with Israel. But, God will condemn them if it is a false peace of deception.
It would be a good thing if the Arabs are really seeking peace with Israel. It would certainly be beneficial to Israel and the surrounding Arab nations. But, it would only be a temporary peace. Politicians of the nations will never achieve a lasting peace between Israel and their enemies. Only the coming Messiah will achieve a true lasting peace. The Messiah will achieve this by fighting against the enemies of Israel. True and lasting peace will be achieved by the strength of God, not by the strength of men. In the future, a seven-year false peace agreement will be made with Israel. But, it will erupt into war after three and one-half years. All of the nations of the world, including the Arab nations, will attack Israel with the intention of annihilating them.
The seven-year false peace agreement with Israel is described in Daniel 9:27. The Anti-Christ will break the false peace agreement in the middle of the seven years. This vile politician will defile the Temple in Jerusalem.
Daniel 9:27 “And he shall confirm the covenant [peace agreement] with many for one week [7 years]: and in the midst of the week [after three and one-half years] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”
All nations of the world, including the Arab nations, will attack Israel. The Messiah will come to the defense of Israel when it appears that they will be wiped off the face of the earth. By His strength, the Messiah will bring in everlasting peace for Israel. This can be seen in Zechariah 14.
Zechariah 14:1-21 “Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains;
for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. 6And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. 8And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. 9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. 10All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.
11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. 12And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. 13And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour. 14And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.
15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague. 16And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. 17And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 19This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD’S house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.”

“Saudi Arabian Newspaper: ‘There Is No Longer an Arab-Israeli Conflict’
A fascinating article was uncovered that improved the image of the Saudi royal family. It claims that the Arab-Israeli conflict has ended and now there is a conflict between Israel and Turkey and Iran, who support terrorist organizations fighting against Israel. The weakness of the Arab states and the isolation of Qatar make the present time better to achieve a comprehensive peace agreement with the Arab world.

An international Saudi newspaper, which is the mouthpiece of the royal family based in Riyadh, declared that there is no longer an Israeli-Arab conflict, but an Israeli-Turkish-Iranian conflict. The paper declares that if Israel wants to do a big deal with the Arabs, now is the time.
Under the headline ‘there is no more Israeli-Arab conflict,’the article indicates that the attacks on Israel come from Gaza, who carries out the mission of Iran with the assistance of the Muslim Brotherhood and their patrons, Turkey and Qatar.
‘Even the nature of the conflict changed,’ the author of the article explained. ‘Conventional warfare, where armies of countries face enemies in the combat zone, has been replaced by asymmetrical warfare, where the army fights against guerilla movements in the cities. The conflicts between Israel and the Arab states, led by the 1948, 1967 and 1973 wars, are no longer the reality. Israel is now fighting political movements such as Hamas and Hezbollah, not the Arab countries, and the patronage of these movements come from Iran and Turkey. Of course, they are not Arab countries.’
‘The disconnection of the Arab states and the rhetoric against Hamas in the Arab world, especially in Egypt, indicates a profound change in the perception of the conflict across the Arab world,’ the article stressed. ‘The rhetoric of the current round turned Israel against Hamas, Turkey, Iran and Qatar. The support in the Arab world for Hamas is voiced only on twitter and other social media forums.’
The article stressed that Qatar, the only Arab country that supports Hamas, is isolated from the rest of the Gulf countries, after Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain withdrew their ambassadors from Doha: ‘So, what was once the Arab-Israeli conflict no longer exists.’
‘The good news is that if Israel wants to achieve a great deal with the Arabs, now is the time to do it,’the Saudi newspaper declared. ‘Arab countries are now in the worst political situation they have been in for some time. Given the current political upheavals, they are now ready to sign a comprehensive deal with Israel.’” (2)
