Egypt – Desperation Ignites Middle East Fire Storm!

A firestorm is spreading throughout the Arab world. It ignited when a 26 year old university graduate could not find steady employment and had to resort to selling produce in the streets to earn money for his family. The authorities seized his fruits and vegetables robbing him of his livelihood and dignity. In protest the merchant set himself on fire and later died. One news commentator stated, “this was a ‘let them eat cake’ moment.”

This certainly was the spark that set in motion the fall of Tunisia’s oppressive regime, and the fire has rapidly spread to Egypt and Yemen. Many Arab countries are taking a neutral stand, because they see these revolts as a “good thing.” However, it could also be the opportunity Islamic radicals have been hoping for. Yemen, where they already have a strong al-Qa’ida presence, is especially vulnerable. What will this mean for the world? At a minimum, it is causing great distress among the nations. Israel is in an especially precarious position, to be sure.  But all of these conditions are the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

    There is so much evil in the world today. I’m so looking forward to God’s Kingdom, when none shall hurt nor destroy (Isaiah 11:9, Isaiah 65:25), and all will come back to health (Isaiah 35), and all who will can come and take of the water of life freely (Revelation 21:17).

    God is love (1 John 4:8,16), and He will make all of this right in His due time (Isaiah 40:3-5, Luke 3:4-6, 1 Timothy 2:5,6).

    Last week, just days after the demonstrations to reform or overthrow the Egyptian government got underway, Muslims in the south of the country took advantage of the general chaos to break into two homes belonging to local Coptic Christians and butcher every man, woman and child they could find.

    The Muslim assailants massacred eleven people and seriously wounded four others. Two whole families were destroyed.

    According to survivors of the attack who spoke to AINA, the Assyrian International News Agency, the attackers were aided by the Christians’ Muslim neighbors. Killed in the attack were a 15-year-old girl, an 8-year-old boy, a 4-year-old boy and a little girl only three years old.

    Christians slaughtered in southern Egypt

    There is spreading fear that if Egypt falls into the hands of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, godfather of extremist groups across the region, the 10 million Coptic Christians in Egypt will face severe persecution, or worse.

    There is already evidence that the Christians of Egypt are in for a very bumpy ride going forward. On Sunday, the Muslim Brotherhood-led opposition agreed to sit down and talk with newly-appointed Vice President Omar Suleiman. The Christians were not invited to the table, despite being part of the original demonstrations demanding reform.
