Valley News & Views iiiiii~i iii~iiiii iiiiii~ili iiii~i[ Page 7 June 17, 2010 The Pastor's Column A potentially serious confrontation is brewing in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Gaza. Hamas, the terrorist organization controlling the Palestinians regularly seeks to smuggle arms and rockets into the Gaza Strip. To prevent Hamas from acquiring these weapons Egypt and Israel have established a blockade offshore. They stop, board and search all incoming ships. The ships are then escorted to the dock, and the relief supplies are unloaded and taken by land to the Palestinians. But recently six ships originating in Turkey came with the sole purpose of breaking the blockade and stirring up trouble for Israel. Now Iran is threatening to get involved. The DEBKAfile ran a headline that read: "Iran's Gaza-bound ships ready for clash with Israel". According to DEBKAfile the Iranian vessel will carry "volunteer marines" from the Revolutionary Guard who, quotig Ahmadinejad, "will teach the Israelis a lesson". Iran intends to either break the blockade or stir up more trouble for Israel or both. Joel Rosenberg's website quoted a headline from "Israel National News," which read: "Rabbis: Flotilla clash similar to Gog and Magog prophecy", in Ezekiel 38-39. And David Horowitz, one- time radical leftist turned conservative reported that Hamas claims they intend to go to war with Israel this summer. Hopefully this is just talk, but Horowitz suggested the flotilla incident may be the first round in that war. The war referred to by the rabbis begins when a Russian-ledarmysweepsinto Israel "like a storm". Troops, planes, tanks and weaponry of all types will come "like a cloud to Cover the land", Ezekiel prophesied. Iran's radical leaders will join in, along with Libya, Ethiopia, Turkey (which is becoming increasingly radicalized), and a host of other nations. The war's timing is uncertain, but present-day events show how quickly circumstances can come together. by pastor leroy aufenkamp The Cavalier Community Foundation presented Pembina County Meals & Transportation with a donation of $760.00 to be used for local match for a new transportation vehicle in the Cavalier area.
