Sefer Eliyahu says:
"...The last king who rules Persia shall come up against the Romans three successive years until he expands (his gains) against them for twelve months. Three mighty warriors will come up to oppose him from the west, but they will be handed over into his control. Then the lowliest of the kings, the son of a slave woman and whose name is Gīgīt, will confront him from the west...."
In the first follow-up, I concurred with Reb Dov Bar Lev that the "lowliest of the kings," which I take to mean all the Western leaders, is Ehud Olmert. Now, thanks to DEBKA, we know the identities of the "three mighty warriors" who oppose Achmadinejad (the "King of Persia") and sure enough, they're doing it near the end of the year following his three successive visits to Rome (2005, 2006, 2007).
US, UK, France launch sea exercise for naval blockade on Iran
With Gordon Brown's appearance in the Knesset today, each of these leaders---Bush of the US, Sarkozy of France and Brown of the UK have appeared before and addressed the Knesset this year. What are the chances of that? And of course, each in his own way demanded that we cease building Yerushalayim.
Speculating on what it means to be handed over into his control, I'd guess it has something to do either with the oil supply or a threat to the troops sitting in Iraq. This is the only real control he's got. I'd guess they'll stand down in the end and Olmert will decide Israel will go it alone, based on this small portion of text.
This certainly bears further watching...
