It is amazing how much the world ignores the excesses of Islam while vilifying Israel, the only liberal democracy in the Middle East.

How can it be possible for Western media to ignore the highest ideal in Israeli society, which is to save a life?

How can it be possible for Western media to ignore the highest ideal in Arab society, which is to TAKE a life?

Does the truth mean so little to these people?

What an amazing reflection on Western culture. We actively ignore the vilest, most awful examples of depravity in Israel’s enemies while vilifying and calling awful, EVERYTHING about Israeli society.

I was planning on doing something else today, but my plans got derailed by an email. I talk about the email in today’s OmegaShock post, here. And yes, you should read that post.

What I want to describe here on Israel Outlook, is a book written by the subject of the email, Richard Maybury. The name of the book is The Thousand Year War in the Mideast – How It Affects You Today.

I have lived in the Middle East for a decade and a half, analyzing everything I could find about the place, and I can truthfully say that the book is unusually accurate – while being subtly flawed.

I’m not sure what else to call it. I guess that I could call chapters 36-39 of Ezekiel as Ezekiel 36-39, just like any other normal human being. And, maybe I would, if I was a normal human being.

But, these four chapters in Ezekiel are integral to each other. They fit together and belong together. They are a group of four, and a group of four is a tetrad. I guess that I could call it a quartet, but then everyone will be expecting a song.

So, for the moment, it’s a tetrad.

Ezekiel 39

Here is the finale grande for this Ezekiel Tetrad, and it’s a doozy. (Tetrad means ‘group of four’)

In Ezekiel 39 we get even MORE detail of what happens in chapter 38, as well as what leads up to Ezekiel 36:31. Remember, this is God’s objective:

Ezekiel 36:31 Then shall ye remember your evil ways, and your doings that were not good; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

Ezekiel 38

Now, we get to the exciting part.

Up to now, except of the Dry Bones thing, it’s all been peace and roses. Well, there’s difficulty in the details. Just remember that Ezekiel 38 and 39 are bringing Israel to the point where THIS happens:

Ezekiel 36:31 Then shall ye remember your evil ways, and your doings that were not good; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

When all hope seems lost, God will reach down and save Israel, showing that He exists and loves His people, prompting introspection and soul searching.
