Hi, Tovey

Right now, I have to put Ezekiel 38-39 on hold, because things don't seem to line up with it. The main actors at the moment seem to be Iran and Saudi Arabia. The US appears completely flatfooted and dazed, while the Iranians are not-so-subtly taking over the Iraqi armed forces; and the Saudis seem to be in charge of the opposition. The last I checked, they may be swinging a deal with Pakistan, Turkey AND Morocco in an effort to stop Iran. ISIL, meanwhile, is providing a smoke screen for all of the above. They seem like rodeo clowns, with all their beheadings and vandalism, trying to distract the world press from something more important -- the cowboy slipping out of reach of the bull. I suspect that the bull is named Obama, and the cowboy is a Muslim.

Shalom shalom.
