Except for Muammar Gaddafi, all of the Arab rulers that were deposed or assassinated during the “Arab Advantage” of 2011 were post Arab – Israeli wars leaders. Each of them attained their power after the 1948, 1967, and 1973 Middle East wars. Concerning Gaddafi, he seized power over Libya in a bloodless military coup in 1969, so he was busy reshaping his country, and wasn’t much of a factor in the 1973 “Yom Kippur” war.
The departure of Ben Ali of Tunisia, Mubarak of Egypt, Bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki of Al-Qaeda, Gaddafi of Libya, and Saleh of Yemen, opens the door for a new breed of Arab presidents, and terrorist organization leaders. Will they be peacemakers or war-mongers?
To the onlooker what should be worrisome are not the Arab leaders that are departed, but the war-minded ones like Assad of Syria, Nasrallah of Hezbollah, Meshal of Hamas, and Abbas of Fatah, that are still seated in power. All of these leaders left intact from the Arab Spring are opposed to the existence of Israel. In the case of Abbas, he opposes Israel’s present post June, 1967 borders, but the others refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist at all. They are in favor of war, and I fear the new Arab presidents, prime ministers, and terrorist leaders will too!
This is because everyone one of the countries involved in the Arab Awakening is involved in Bible prophecies that inform they join in confederacies to invade Israel. Namely, Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38.
Listen to an interesting radio broadcast that discusses the apocalyptic future of the Middle East, where Egypt is identified in Psalm 83, the destruction of Damascus, and the recent revelations about Iran’s double prophetic jeopardy.
