In 2002, George W. Bush spoke of an “Axis of Evil.” This alliance of evil included Iran, North Korea and Iraq. After Saddam Hussein was taken out, Iraq has remained a most unstable country. The presence of ISIS in that region has contributed to the country’s instability.
The Left have ridiculed Bush for claiming that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction. It is believed that these weapons were quickly moved to Syria and buried in Damascus before that war began. But the Left maintain that Saddam never had such weapons.
Today, Israel has spoken of a new Axis of Evil. Iran and North Korea remain part of this world threat, but a new player has been added. Abbas from the Palestinian Authority has evidently joined forces with Kim Jung Un of North Korea.
In an official letter to Kim Jong-un, Abbas said the Korean people “sacrificed the most precious sacrifices for its freedom and honor” and expressed his appreciation to the support North Korea has shown the Palestinian people in their fight for freedom.
Abbas also expressed hope the “historical friendly relations between Palestine and North Korea and their two peoples will continue to develop and grow” and wished Kim “all health and happiness.”
His greeting, published by the state-run Wafa news agency, made no mention of North Korea’s nuclear threats or dispute with the US.
The Palestinian leader also sent a greeting to the President of South Korea, Moon Jae-in, for Liberation Day as well, wishing the country prosperity and stability.
He also expressed hope to strengthen bilateral ties between the Palestinian Authority and South Korea, and likewise expressed his appreciation of the country’s contribution to the Palestinian economy and its support in building Palestinian institutions. – source
Evil attracts evil. All three of these countries detest America and Israel. Same hatred, yet a new player in the mix.
“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet” (Matthew 24:6).
We must pray for our president and his administration. We must continue to pray for Israel as the Word tells us to Pray for Peace of Jerusalem.
We must also place any fear in our hearts at the feet of our Messiah. We are close to being removed from this wicked earth. Hallelujah!
