Reader comment on item: America's Hidden Jihad
in response to reader comment: Overrating the World Threat of Islam - Greatest World Nuclear Threat is Iran's Love of the Atom

Hi, Tovey

I see that what you said was greatly truncated by the editors. What I am left with is:

"...just rereading about Ezekiel's scenario in Israel; and how the tensions of this scene are exacerbated by how much time America spends defusing nucelar tensions. Now Putin speaks of a nuclear (tactical) option to resolve Syria's(?) ISIS crisis; and the American Administrative Chief Executive says what.......?
Let's go back Iraq........"

That doesn't leave me with much to go on. Concerning Ezekiel's scenario, it seems that when I key in the words "Russia Turkey Israel", I'm as likely to end up on a prophecy website as on a news website. I am not one of those who believes Russia will be a major player in the Ezekiel 38-39 scenario, nor even Zech. 14 and the "Battle of Armageddon".

One thing I will say for sure about the Russian presence in Syria, though, is that it really makes things interesting from an air traffic control standpoint. Also, Russia is allied to Iran and Turkey is allied to Saudi Arabia. Yet when Iran and Saudi Arabia started coming to loggerheads lately over one of the many executions both sides have perpetrated against each other's clerics, both Russia and Turkey seemed to be looking for the exits. Turkey and Qatar did ultimately sidle over to the Saudi side; but Russia doesn't seem happy about the Ayatollah trying to ensnare her in yet another sectarian squabble. This is especially so, since Russia and Israel have been coordinating pretty well: Israel knocks out a Hizbullah monster, and Russia in turn knocks out a Saudi-backed leader. Now Hizbullah has done a cross-border raid into Golan, to draw Israel into the Iran-Saudi squabble; and Russia and Israel both have kept from snapping at the bait.

NATO is divided; the US is divided; and the US President is REALLY divided. I'm still in one piece, and am going to bed...
