Iran controls the trouble in and around Israel. It literally activates and ferments violence when it wants to. Hamas & Hezbollah don’t do anything without their paymasters say so.
A Russian alliance of some sort and Russian aggression that might come over our world today may be one of the many signs of "Acharit hashanim" or the "Latter years", the horrible great war that would come over the planet earth, as prophesied in the ancient Books of the Hebrews. God tells us that the onslaught that shall ascend and come like a storm, was prepared well in advance. Even when Israel were dwelling safely. This is typical of Russian strategy. They are the master chess players planning many many moves ahead. Putin came to power early 2000 – even then Israel were still living in “safety” the Al Aqsa Intifada had not begun the walls were not built.. It could have been at this very time that Gog thought this evil thought when Israel dwells safely.
