The Scriptures clearly teach that a false peace will come to the Middle East, which will be followed by a surprise blitzkrieg strike into Israel from the north by the willful king of the north, who is antichrist. This evil attack is carried out from the previous wicked plan perceived in the mind of antichrist, and his armies will plunge quickly southward across the glorious land of Israel, taking the city of Jerusalem within three days.
 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:  And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,  He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
I realize it seems impossible at present for a false peace to come to Israel. But the events that are occurring now, involving our treatment of a ruling government which sponsored terrorism, is having a profound effect on those governing bodies across the Islamic world. Syria, Libya, Algeria, Sudan, Iraq, and Iran are among the leaders of Arab nations that are continuing to sponsor and support terrorism. They do not want to see the terrorist groups destroyed or severely crippled. They want Israel out of all the land from Dan to Beersheva. This has been, and will continue to be, the objective of a consolidated Arab brotherhood. It will not change. They are as one in this objective of national interest. There is only one way they can save face and, at the same time, preserve the basic structure of their terrorist networks. They must meet with the extremists, behind closed doors, in a series of meetings, and lay out a definite plan of a future sudden Jihad against Israel that will catch her unawares. The extremists, from which the terrorist groups stem within each Islamic nation, under the plan would stop activities, allowing Syria, the Palestinians, and Israel to eventually reach an agreement on the West Bank and the Golan Heights. A sudden, abrupt end of terrorist activities, in the land from Dan to Beersheva, would be so shocking after some 53 years of terrorist activity, that after only a brief period of non-activity, Israel would believe the peace to be genuine.
