Arab League joint Arab Military Force……Official

The Arab Military is now official.

The Arab leaders have decided to agree on the principle of a joint Arab military force,” Sisi said Sunday as the summit wrapped up. The summit final communique called for “coordination, efforts and steps to establish an unified Arab force” to intervene in countries such as Yemen.

The Egyptian leader said a high-level panel will work out the structure and mechanism of the future force. The work is expected to take four months.

Earlier reports said the joint Arab military may be formed from roughly 40,000 elite troops and backed by warplanes, warships and light armor. There are however doubts that all 22 members of the Arab League would significantly contribute to it; the formations of the force could take months.

Perhaps it is still too early, but a more clear picture of the Middle East is now unfolding. The 22 Arab states are mostly Sunni Muslim. Al Qaeda and Hamas are Sunni militant groups. Turkey is mostly Sunni, but it is not yet clear whom they support at this time, but we know from scripture they will attack Israel along with Iran and Russia.

Iran, Hezbollah, Assad Regime of Syria, and the Houthis are all Shi’a Muslim and are supported by the countries of Russia, China, and North Korea. Hezbollah is a militant group based in Lebanon.

And then there is ISIS whom are Salafis, a movement and doctrine known as Salafism which is the fastest-growing Islamic movement in the world. Salafis are also the dominant minority in Saudi Arabia with 4 million members. ISIS has a relatively unknown goal other than to destroy everything in their path.

 

Psalm 83 – the beginning?

Arab foreign ministers meeting in Egypt agreed a draft resolution on Thursday to form a unified military force, in a move aimed at countering growing regional security threats.

The agreement came after warplanes from Saudi Arabia and Arab allies struck Shiite Muslim rebels in Yemen on Thursday, in an effort to check Iranian influence in their backyard without direct military backing from Washington.

 

The idea was first floated by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. The 22 Arab states often have different views on how to tackle crises and calls for a unified force in the past have failed to produce tangible results.

The Face of the Middle East is about to change again

The World is changing fast and is about to change again in the Middle East.

Concerning Israel:

The recent conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip has changed the opinions of certain global players who now wish to hold dialog with the group, senior Hamas member Mahmoud al-Zahar said Saturday, according to Ynet. Al-Zahar said nations – he did not give specifics – which had previously regarded his organization as a terrorist group had now undergone a change of heart.

 

General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, proposed to Mahmoud Abbas a far-reaching plan.  According to this plan, Egypt will provide a 1,600 square kilometer area near the Gaza Strip, an area that will make the Strip five times its size today, there shall be established a Palestinian state under the total control of the Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian refugees would return to this country and it would be demilitarized.
