Strange Days Ahead

Unexpected things are going to happen when Mashiach and the Geulah come. We need to be prepared for all eventualities. For example, there is a pasuk in Zekharyah (9.6-7) that says: "...I will eliminate the pride of the Philistines (פלשתים) . I will remove his blood from his mouth and his abominations from between his teeth, and then he too will remain for our God. He will be like a master in Judah, and Ekron will be like the Jebusite."

Commentary says: "The Philistines (Palestinians?) will stop their bloodthirsty and idolatrous practices, and join the people of Israel in worshipping God. Then, even the Philistines will be like the leaders of Judah, and Ekron will be as Jewish as the former Jebusite city of Jerusalem."

The following two-part video may offer an explanation for why this will be so...
