“O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you— the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, Byblos, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre. Even Assyria has joined them to reinforce Lot’s descendants” (Psalm 83:1-9).
Edom, Moab, Ammon are modern-day Jordan. The people of Jordan were part of the Ottoman Empire that was dispersed and, with the British Mandate after World War I, was made into the nation and land of Jordan. The Ammonites and Moabites were the children born of incest through Lot and his daughters after they fled Sodom and Gomorrah. Edom is the land given to Esau, Jacob’s brother, and his descendants including the Ishmaelites; Ishmael was Abraham’s son with Hagar. The Ishmaelites bought Joseph and took him to Egypt and sold him as a slave. Assyria is Syria and Byblos is in Lebanon. Philistia is the pseudo-nation of the Palestinians. Historically, these three nations have always been enemies of Israel –– sibling rivalry.
This list of countries in Psalm 83 make up what is known today as the ‘Arab’ or ‘Muslim’ world along with Saudi Arabia, Iran, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Tunisia. It is from these countries where the Jihadists and Islamic fundamentalists are born.
According to Psalm 83, these nations ‘plot together, form an alliance against God, and desire Israel’s name to be remembered no more.’ This is today’s news. This is the ideology of Hamas and why there will be an attempt and even success in western nations with Jihad. Any nation who welcomes Islam as a ‘peaceful’ religion will soon find out otherwise as has Copenhagen, Denmark; Paris, France, and London, England. Whoever joins with Israel and supports Israel’s right to defend herself as a sovereign nation becomes an enemy of this Arab/Muslim alliance. Any individual who supports Israel and the right of the Jewish people to live will also face serious persecution if Muslim ideology takes root in America.
