Hal Lindsay’s commentary on the current Middle East developments:

Wow, strange things are happening in the Middle East.

After accepting Hezbollah as a “partner” in Lebanon’s government during the past year, Saad Hariri, the Prime Minister of Lebanon, flew to Saudi Arabia and briefly disappeared. Last week, he appeared on Saudi television and announced his resignation as Prime Minister of Lebanon.

Hariri blamed Hezbollah, which is internationally recognized as a terror group, and its master, Iran, which is internationally recognized as the greatest state sponsor of terrorism. He said he feared for his life.

Even now, Hariri insists he is not being detained against his will. But Lebanon — and Hezbollah — accuse the Saudis of “kidnapping” their Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, the Houthis of Yemen launched a ballistic missile at Saudi Arabia. The Saudi air force intercepted it and destroyed it mid-flight.

The Houthis are a radical Yemeni group funded by Iran — which also founded and funds Hezbollah.

Since Iran funds the Houthis and supplied the missile that was fired at Saudi Arabia, and since Hezbollah is, likewise, a proxy of Iran and is a full partner in Lebanon’s official government, the Saudis have drawn an interesting conclusion.

Saudi Arabia is accusing Lebanon of committing an “act of war” against it.

So the Saudis accuse Lebanon of an “act of war” and the Lebanese accuse the Saudis of kidnapping their Prime Minister. The whole affair has the Middle East on edge.

Some analysts believe the Saudis accuse the nation of Lebanon of this aggression in order to fan sectarian conflict in Lebanon. The thinking is that if the Saudis can cause the 40% of Lebanon’s population that is Christian, and the 30% that is Sunni Muslim (as opposed to Shi’ite Muslim like Hezbollah and Iran) to rise up against Hezbollah, they may be able to stop the takeover of Lebanon by Iran.

The Saudis may be setting the stage for a possible intervention in Lebanon. If that happens, Iran won’t respond nicely and the region could explode.

The human suffering caused by the Syrian civil war (in which Iran and Hezbollah are allies of Assad), has been surprising and tragic. It has changed the character of the Middle East and, because of the mass “refugee” migration, of Europe.

But it may be just the beginning.

Finally, as we prepare to celebrate this Thanksgiving season, I want to share with you why I think it’s more important than ever to understand the power of praise in thanksgiving to God. Our nation faces real and present dangers. As I report weekly on “The Hal Lindsey Report,” the threats are mounting and the odds appear to be impossible. But it’s precisely at those moments of darkness that the power of praise and gratitude to God can be our pathway to victory.

  1. Well, if I could give some quick background info; the Psalm 83 war occurs before the Ezekiel 38-39 war, because the nations involved actually protest the invasion as Sheba, Dedan, and Tarshish. Sheba and Dedan have always been Arab entities, and while there have been several “Tarshishes” in history, this particular one appears to be the Syrian port of Tartus. It will take the place of Damascus after the destruction of Isaiah 17:1, which will most likely be destroyed during the Psalm 83 war.

    So where are we now? I think the evidence is that we are in the build-up to the Psalm 83 war. That war will have all of Israel’s Arab neighbors attack, from Lebanon in the north, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, Jordan, and Egypt in the south.

    So what could be the outcome of Israeli cooperation with Syria?

    How will the Saudis view Israel working with them to defeat Hezbollah in Lebanon? This is what the Israelis seem to be unable to understand;

    The Saudis will view Israeli cooperation with them as weakness!

    The Saudis will reason that “Israel had to work with us to defeat Hezbollah because they couldn’t do it themselves”! They will also reason “If Israel is that weak, we can take them on… now! Especially if we have the help of our Arab brothers”!

    So while Israel views cooperation with the Arabs as a good-will gesture, they are not counting on the Arabs thinking differently, and it will backfire terribly.

    This war will be so terrible, and Israel will really be in danger of being pushed into the sea, to the point that they will be forced to use their nuclear arsenal!
