The Hal Lindsey Report On this week’s edition of “The Hal Lindsey Report,” Iran seems to be mounting a full-court press. Last week, Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad traveled to Syria. He met with Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah, and Hamas’ founder Khaled Meshal. The week before, Iran concluded a mutual defense pact with the Arab state of Qatar. That’s a little tricky for the United States because Qatar is home to the headquarters of the U.S. Central Command and our largest airbase outside the US mainland. Also last month, Syria’s Foreign Minister became the first Syrian official to publicly threaten Israel’s population centers. Following suit, Hezbollah’s Nasrallah got very specific in his threats, too. Not to be outdone, when Ahmadinejad got back home, he once again threatened to “eradicate [Israel] once and for all.” It’s all happening across the Middle East. And it’s also happening inside Israel. Last week, the Palestinian Authority’s spiritual leader issued a fatwa (religious edict) against Palestinians who work on Jewish construction sites. He called them ‘traitors’ who should be imprisoned. If they take it seriously, that would mean thousands more Palestinians unemployed. Sheikh Taysar Tamimi didn’t stop there, though. He also included Arabs who work on Jewish archaeological digs, especially those that might support Israel’s claims to the land. Tamimi said that those archaeological zones are deviously intended to “judaize Jerusalem.” He also accused Binyamin Netanyahu, all Jewish rabbis, and all extremist organizations of lying by asserting that Jerusalem was a Jewish city. I wonder if he includes King David in that group?


I'm a watchman for Christ, looking on the horizon in expectation for the fulfillment of God's Word.
