Psalm 83 and The Confederacy

Psalm 83:1-9

“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.”

Edom, Moab, Ammon are modern-day Jordan.  They were part of the Ottoman Empire that was dispersed and created into Jordan with the British Mandate after World War I.   The Ammonites and Moabites were the children born of incest by Lot and his daughters after they fled Sodom and Gomorrah.  Edom is the land given to Esau (Jacob’s brother) and his descendants including Amalek; Ishmael was Abraham’s son with Hagar.  It was the Ishmaelites who bought Joseph and took him to Egypt to be sold into slavery.     Assyria is Syria and Byblos is in Lebanon.  Philistia is the pseudo-nations of the Palestinians.  Historically, these three nations have always been enemies of Israel.  It’s called ‘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, Tunisia, etc.    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 foundation for Hamas, this is why there will be the 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, supports Israel’s right to defend herself,  becomes an enemy of this Muslim alliance.  Any individual who supports Israel and the right of the Jewish people to live will also face serious consequences within the Muslim ideology.
