Rabbis: Flotilla Clash Similar to Gog and Magog Prophecy
Sivan 21, 5770, 03 June 10 07:34by Gil Ronen
(Israelnationalnews.com) The Rabbinical Council of Judea and Samaria issued a statement Thursday in which it said that the results of the incident in which Israel intercepted a flotilla trying to break the naval blockade of Gaza seem like the Biblical description of “the beginning of the Gog and Magog process where the world is against us, but which ends with the third and final redemption.”
The statement explained that while secular Zionism always wants Israel to be beloved by other nations, “the legitimacy of our people is not derived from the nations of the world and their poisonous traditions, rather from the Torah of Israel which teaches us that [Israel] ‘is a people that shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations'” (Numbers 23:9). They emphasized that there is no reason to be alarmed by the world’s condemnation as it is a predicted result of fear of Israel’s success.
The Council blessed the soldiers of the IDF and called for the formation of an emergency unity government that will lead the nation from a position of strength.
Is that clear?
