    Default QUATAR and a Middle East War Your Thoughts

    There seems to be a strong possibility that a middle East war could be triggered over Saudi led demands that Quatar stops supporting terrorists close down Al Jazeera and break their close links with Iran. So far Quatar refuses to comply It remains to be seen how the US will react. How does everyone else view the situation?

    I find it interesting to see that so far not one person has replied. Yet the silence speaks volumes

    I do find it interesting and disturbing how when the culture moves into other countries that it appears they try to take over areas and institute their laws or make their areas unsafe for the countries natural population to be afraid to go into their living areas or the police to be afraid to go and settle disputes in the areas and that they want to follow their own laws...from the country they left... talking about the middle eastern cultures... I know in US Dearborn, MI is having some big issues and parts of France etc.

    It has been mentioned on our News for about a week. Saudi Arabia and some other Arab countries including Egypt have imposed a trade blockade against Quatar Thing is if Saudi Arabia launches an attack on Quatar it remains to be seen how Iran will react. Iran is building an Empire in the region by proxy. On the surface it looks like just an interArab/Muslim quarrel but it could go global if the US and Russia get involved.

    The situation seems to have come about by the visit of Trump to a leaders convention in Saudi Arabia where he seemed to have persuaded some of the Arab leaders to take action against the financiers of jihadist terrorist groups.. It seems that Saudi Arabia and others allied with them have selected Qatar to be the Gulf state that is to be made an example of so as to appease the USA and thus retain the USA as an arms supplier and a backer for them against Iran..

    Qatar being the arab state in the gulf with the most co-operative relations with Iran is now the state being boycotted and punished.. The uncomfortable thing about it is that the USA and it's coalition allies have a major Airbase and centre of operations based in Qatar... If things get more heated and Qatar continues to refuse to give into Saudi demands the you could see an emergency evacuation of the command centre and air base of US and coalition forces... If you see that then it will be a sure sign that a war will happen in the gulf and Qatar will be invaded by Saudi and other gulf state forces... If however the coalition forces remain and continue to operate from their base in Qatar you can conclude that this Saudi vs Qatari argument is only for show and will not proceed past a cold war type situation..

    SA is probably just making those demands to please the US and doesn't have any plans to take action. Just like how China said it agrees with the US that North Korea is out of line. Yet they continue to trade with them and do nothing.

    Looks like a major episode of the shite/sunni conflict - i 'spects Quattar has a major shite population and has connections to Iran. All part of of an age old conflict that's going to be played out for a long time....

    I am glad you have mentioned this Tanakh as I had not seen it myself. I had noticed things happening in the UK that were similar to just before the Gulf war and again, the Iraq war etc. It made me think "Who are we at war with now?"

    My mum had a vision back in 2005 about Quatar.

    I would be interested to know what the vision revealed. I can see thed UK getting involved. We were a protectorate of Quatar until the 1970's and now have a big involvement with SA who buys weapons from us.

    I think we are seeing the coalition being formed and lines drawn....the Middle East is aflame and those 10 horns will rise and 3 get subdued by the BEAST unto himself and this will be the 8th and final kingdom to rule over the Middle East.....it seems that this whole deal with Saudi, Qatar, Syria, Iran (Persia), Turkey etc.....is all pointing to this end result......

    Just saying. I'm tired of all the "proxy wars". When are the people going to kick out both proxies, and take control of their own countries?

    Personally I find it a bit too rich
    For Saudi Arabia to accuse anyone of funding terrorists
    But I am not that stupid either
    It is obviously just a pretext
    To try to drive a wedge between Iran and her Gulf allies
    But because both of them rejoice in killing my people
    I confess I have no pity to either side's cries

    I'm not sure what to think about the present situation but I'm fairly certain that the next world war will be centered in the Middle East and will probably occur within the next few years.

    I have the same view. I believe it may start with some incident that appears to be relevantly minor to most people but will escalate out of control.

    it looks to me like the Persian empire is being rebuilt ((Iran)) and is aligned with Gog/Magog ((most commonly associated with Russia)), and represents a very open and severe threat to exterminate the Jews at the doorstep of Israel.

    Egypt and a possible resurfacing of Assyria are also in play, and i believe that the prophecy that Damascus will become an uninhabitable rubble field has not yet seen its fulfillment, but certainly will at the right time.

    the current situation with Quatar can be understood as a proxy aggression between Iran & the Sauds, between Shia and Sunni. both hate Israel and want to see it destroyed, but go about that in different ways.

    it's not unlike Ezekiel 38. not unlike it at all

    I think that nothing will happen.

    One ultimatum passed, another will pass etc. This is how Arabs acts. Big words, no actions.

    It will somehow get to "normal" in time with Saudi Arabia as the main sponsor of terrorism and the rich friend of almost any Western power.

    Better friendship between Iran, Quatar and Turkey can be established, probably.
    Do not be worried about many things - only one thing is needed (Lk 10:41-42).
