-Israeli Rabbinical Council: Is this the Beginning of ‘Gog and Magog’?

In Israel, the Rabbinical Council of Judea and Samaria announced today that they believe the current conflict with Turkey over a flotilla of ships trying to run the Gaza blockade may be the beginning of the ‘Gog and Magog’ end time battle prophesied in the book of Ezekiel (38 & 39).

The rabbis note that in the ‘God and Magog’ scenario the whole world is against Israel and they are attacked from the north with many other countries joining the battle but in the end Israel is saved and redeemed for the 3rd and final time ushering in a new era in world history.

Response: This is remarkable. To me the key to the ‘Gog and Magog’ scenario has always been Turkey. Since many of the ancient nations named in the Ezekiel prophecy that attack Israel are now part of the current Turkish national territory. For years prophecy students have always looked upon Russia as the major clog in the northern army that attacks Israel, but I have always believed that Turkey was the most important missing piece of the Ezekiel puzzle.

Since WWI the country of Turkey has had a secular Western leaning government that looked towards Europe and became part of NATO and a strong ally of the US and Israel. Israel’s only ally in the Middle East.

However, in the last several years Turkey has become increasingly an Islamist nation and has turned its focus towards the East completing new diplomatic ties with Iran and Syria. It is now being repositioned as a major part of the coalition that is against Israel.

Whether this is the beginning of the ‘Gog and Magog’ battle or not remains to be seen. I doubt it. But one thing for sure, the recent realignment of Turkey now makes the whole scenario possible and the Israeli Rabbis recognize that possibility. The Rabbis also note that the whole world seems to be against them right now including the US. The Obama administration joined in the latest UN statement condemning Israel for the very first time.            *Top

    I am looking for the full article that appeared in the Israel National News

    Rabbi Zalman Melamed. This was referred to in a program by
    Perrystone.org. Or how can I find the web site of the Rabbinical Council of Judea and Samaria? Thank you. I am new to Jewish studies and would
