THE RUSSIAN BEAR AWAKENS
Russian Officials in Egypt to Discuss Arms Deal
Israel National News reports: “The most senior Russian officials to visit Egypt in years will arrive Wednesday [11/13/13] to discuss weapons deals, further signaling Egypt’s shift in alliance from the US to Russia. Al Jazeera reports that the delegation includes Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
Their visit comes amid reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Egypt as well later this month, further solidifying the new alignment between Russia and Egypt.
The Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement that the delegation would discuss ‘the full spectrum’ of ties between the two countries, including ‘military-technical cooperation.’
Talk of an Egyptian $15 billion dollar arms deal with Russia partially funded by Saudi Arabia, which similarly seems to be turning from the US to Russia, appears to be materializing in the visit. The deal reportedly would have Egypt purchase MiG-29 planes and other military equipment…” (I, in 1951 began warning America and Canada that Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 predicted in verses 1 and 2 of both chapters that Armageddon would occur in the future under the cities named as Gog of Magog [Russia], as the Greeks called the Scythians who populated Russia. The other names Meshech [Moscow], Tubal [Tubalsk, Southwest of Siberia] – where the famous U-2 pilot, Gary Powers, was shot down in 1960.
I also named the Islamic cities that would join Russia and China for the greatest war ever as predicted in Revelation 9:14 – 18 and fought in the ‘latter years and latter days’ – Ezekiel 38:8, 16.
One of the main Muslim nations was Egypt, the leader and King of the South – Daniel 11:40 and another nation was Persia which changed its name to Iran in 1935. It’s about to happen. Jesus is about to return for as He comes He stops those who are destroying the earth as well as one another – Revelation 11:18. See the next two reports.)
Egypt Announces Expanded Cooperation with Russia
Israel National News reports: “On Saturday [11/9/13] Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said his country will expand cooperation with Russia following a cooling of relations with the US that has stretched on since former President Mohammed Morsi was deposed in July.
Reports indicate that Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Egypt later this month where he is expected to announce a $15 billion arms deal between the two nations partially funded by Saudi Arabia, which likewise is experiencing a crisis in its relations with the US.
Fahmy said Egypt is beginning a ‘new phase’ as ties with America weaken. He stated, according to Al Arabiya, that ‘independence is having choices. So the objective of this foreign policy is to provide Egypt with choices, more choices. So I’m not going to substitute. I’m going to add.’…”
Iran holds talks with Russia to boost military cooperation
SpaceDaily.com reports: “The head of Russia’s air force, General Viktor Bondarev, met his Iranian counterparts in Tehran to discuss boosting military cooperation between the countries, local media reported Monday [10/21/13].
Talks centred on ‘electronic listening systems, radar and missiles,’ Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, head of Khatam-ol-Anbia Air Defence Base, said in comments quoted by daily Sharq.
Esmaili also said that Bondarev had discussed the delivery of Russian-built S-300 ballistic missiles with Iranian air force chiefs…”
Putin Called Saudi King, Next U.S. Ally Lost?
Israel National News reports: “Russian President Vladimir Putin called King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on Sunday [11/10/13], according to Al Arabiya. The overture hints that Saudi Arabia, like Egypt, is poised to shift alliances from the US to Russia.
The two leaders discussed ties between the two countries as well as regional issues such as the Syrian conflict and Iranian nuclear talks. Russian officials told AFP that the two leaders ‘expressed a mutual interest in furthering cooperation and maintaining contacts at various levels.’
The overtures between Russia and Saudi Arabia mirror recent announcements of cooperation between Russia and Egypt. The rapprochement between those two nations is anticipated to be sealed in a $15 billion arms deal largely funded by Saudi Arabia.
Analyst and attorney Mark Langfan in August predicted that US President Barack Obama had lost American ties with Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and that the Saudis, in distancing themselves from Obama, would turn towards Russia…” (This information will change as Saudi Arabia hates and opposes Iran and Egypt presently. Sheba is Saudi Arabia. See Ezekiel 38:13 and Webster’s Dictionary.)
U.S. Removing Navy From Mid-East As Russia Enters
Israel National News reports: “The American aircraft carrier USS Nimitz was recalled from the Persian Gulf on Friday [11/8/13], along with the destroyer USS Graveley from the Mediterranean Sea. The move comes less than a week after Russia sent its most powerful warships to the Mediterranean.
Al Jazeera reports the Nimitz moved through the Suez Canal into the Red Sea, and is anticipated to reach the US in late December. It was scheduled to return in August but was left in the region for a military presence.
The US ships were assigned to the region months ago as US President Barack Obama considered a military strike on Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. On Friday the US Defense Department announced their removal, signaling the Obama administration’s total abandonment of a Syrian military option.
The move further signals a weakening of US military presence in the Middle East, precisely as Russia stands to heighten its influence…” (Our President is playing into the hands of our upcoming enemies. God forgive him and give him greater wisdom. Study Revelation 9:14 – 18; II Timothy 3:1; Jeremiah 30:7. Jacob is Israel – II Kings 17:34; and Matthew 24:21. At that time Israel becomes the battle ground for Armageddon – Ezekiel 38:8, 14, 16, 17, 18, and 19; Ezekiel 39:2, 4, 7, 9, 11, 12, 17, 22, 23, 25, and 29.)
