Prophecy is everywhere today. And why not? We are living in prophetic times. Just as our sages told us would happen, Israel is quickly becoming isolated and without a friend in the world.
Without Egypt, Israel will be left with no friends in Mideast
The fading power of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's government leaves Israel in a state of strategic distress. Without Mubarak, Israel is left with almost no friends in the Middle East; last year, Israel saw its alliance with Turkey collapse.
If Brotherhood takes over, IDF will face formidable enemy
Analysis: This year is turning into critical one for Israeli isolation in the Mideast. Turkey is gone and Egypt appears to be on way.
The Mavi Marmara Affair of 31 May 2010 turned Turkey against us. Until then, Turkey was considered Israel's "closest ally in the Muslim world."
Eight months later, on 12 Jan 2011, Lebanon fell to Hezbollah:
Lebanon government falls after Hezbollah pulls out
Lebanon's government collapsed Wednesday after Hezbollah and its allies resigned from the Cabinet in a dispute with Western-backed factions over upcoming indictments in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
A U.N.-backed tribunal investigating the truck bombing that killed Hariri and 22 others is widely expected to name members of the Shiite militant group, which many fear could re-ignite sectarian violence that has erupted repeatedly in the tiny nation.
Hezbollah's walkout ushers in the country's worst political crisis since 2008 in one of the most volatile corners of the Middle East.
Lebanon's 14-month-old government was an uneasy coalition linking bitter rivals: a Western-backed bloc led by Hariri's son Saad and Hezbollah, which is supported by Syria and Iran and maintains an arsenal that far outweighs that of the national army.
Then, on 25 Jan 2011, a short two weeks further on and trouble started in Egypt. Today, Egypt is aflame. [See The Prophecy of Egypt.]
Although it was a cold peace, Egypt was the first to sign a peace treaty with Israel. Is our other cold peace partner, Jordan, next?
Israel silently watches the unfolding of two new fronts
Egypt, one of the only two Arab states to sign peace with Israel, is wobbling dangerously on the brink of revolutionary change with potentially spreading fallout. This week, Israel was dismayed to find itself looking suddenly at three latently hostile fronts about to spring up around its borders: Lebanon, which has dropped into the Iranian orbit, followed by Egypt, which is heading for terra incognita, and the Gaza Strip, where the Palestinian Hamas, offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, has gained altitude as a Middle East player from the rise of its less radical parent.
...The force most energized by the popular uprising in Egypt week turns out to be the extremist Hamas, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood - not only in Gaza and the West Bank, but also in Jordan. Its enhanced potency makes it a menace for Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the rival Fatah, and the Hashemite throne in Amman.
Flexing his new muscles, Hammam Saeed, head of the Muslim Brotherhood of Jordan and a close ally of the Hamas's Damascus-based leader, Khaled Meshaal, said this in Amman Saturday, Jan. 29: "Egypt's unrest will spread across the Mideast and Arabs will topple leaders allied with the United States."
Then there is this amazing headline:
Exodus in Egypt: US Suggests Fleeing As Soon as Possible
The U.S. embassy in Cairo has told its citizens to consider leaving the country as soon as possible and has warned against traveling in the country.
...The warning is more severe than the previous statement to citizens to avoid non-essential travel in Egypt.
Dozens of wealthy Egyptians beat the rush Saturday night and fled on private planes as the flames of rebellion continued to burn.
This could just as well be a hidden message, one "hidden" in plain sight, to the Jews of America to flee the spiritual Egypt----the USA.
