Well over a year ago, the then Israeli Prime Minister Sharon evacuated all Israeli citizens from the Gaza strip. It was clear at the time that God’s foreknowledge of coming events influenced that move and it soon became apparent that the subsequent election win of Israel-hating Hamas would have resulted in the destruction of any remaining Israelis.
Hamas is bent on the complete and immediate destruction of the State of Israel. Fatah favours a Palestinian state alongside Israel as a preliminary to the eventual removal of all Jews from Palestine.
One result of the Hamas election victory was the severing of overseas financial support and the impoverishment of most of the population. Fatah has attempted to cancel the Hamas election victory to alleviate this situation which has triggered the civil war.
In Biblical history, confusion and self destruction has been a divine method of retribution among Israel’s enemies. An example, “The Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah…And when [Moab] had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another” (2 Chronicles 20:22-23). In 2007 we have the same method being used.
None of this would have been possible if the Israeli settlers had still been living in Gaza. Hostile action against these Israelis would have united the Palestinians. Not having a common enemy inside Gaza, the Palestinians have turned on each other.
Despite a recent truce, many Arab rockets have still been fired on south Israel. When asked why the Israeli armed forces had not gone in to Gaza to prevent these attacks the spokesperson said, “Why should we go in and interfere when they are making such a good job of killing themselves.”
It seems that the time is not yet ripe for Obadiah to be fulfilled, “The lowland [Israelis] shall possess Philistia” [Obad 1:19] the Biblical name by which the Gaza strip was then known. At a future time, by whatever means, the Gaza area will become sovereign Israeli territory.
