2011 February 17
This month Iran seems to have won quite a victory by the removal of Mubarak from power and by all the unrest in the region. Things happened there which were exactly what Iran was striving for. Read more:

On this website several times the prophecy of Daniel 8:4 has been discussed; the last time being just two weeks ago: 2011 February 4 – The Arab revolt .

Now today I read news reports which let my thoughts come back to this issue. The Bible says that Daniel saw the ram, Iran, pushing westward.

Today I saw reports with the following headlines:

 

Israel says Iran warships to transit Suez for Syria

Iran raises Gaza threat by vowing to challenge Israel’s blockade

Israel’s Lieberman says Iranian warships headed for Suez Canal in ‘provocation’

Iranian warships bound for Syria are set to transit Suez Canal, Israel says

Israel accuses Tehran of provocation

Egypt stops two Iranian warships

Iranian warships heading for Mediterranean Israel feels provoked

Official Iranian warships cancel plan to pass through Suez Canal

Iran warships not in Thursday’s Suez convoy: Official

The balance shifts in Lebanese politics

Hezbollah leader tells members to be ready for war

Egypt military rulers face Iran warship passage

Iranian warships do not pass Suez Canal. Egypt refuses permission for way through.

 

Now these Iranian warships approaching the Suez Canal seem to also test the Egyptian reaction, trying to find out more about Egypt’s responds especially now since a change in leadership has taken place in Egypt.

But the basic aim of Iran is probably to strengthen its presence in the Mediterranean. Besides testing the reaction of others like Egypt, another aim is probably to provoke. If Iran really plans to push westward, then it will probably try to create some conflict situation in order to find a reason to really push westward and that probably not so much by sea but more on land.

And this in order to support its ally, Syria, and to gain influence in Lebanon. In order to get to Syria, Iran has to move through Iraq and there the American fighting forces have left and Obama will not act against Iran because he has the same aim as Iran: war.

In Lebanon the balance has shifted. Last month the pro-Western government came down and now Hezbollah has gained influence. And Hezbollah, which is supported by Iran, seems to see its chance and tells its members to be ready for war.

This month Iran seems to have won quite a victory by the removal of Mubarak from power and by all the unrest in the region. Things happened there which were exactly what Iran was striving for.

Last year the American fighting troops withdrew from Iraq and so caused a destabilizing of the region and now the region is even more destabilized by all the unrest in several countries.

Iran itself is not excluded from the unrest, but they seem to be very much prepared for it and have gained from their recent experience.

The whole development in the Middle East is very much in favour of Iran and they are quite jubilant about it, but it also very much helps Obama, and he also has a positive attitude towards it. So both Iran and Obama have come closer to their aim, Iran pushing westward.

But then, after Iran has charged towards the west and caused much harm and suffering, their common political aim will come to an end and Obama will then, after the outcry of the world against Iran and after the call of the world for a saviour, play this role of a saviour and so establish himself as the potential world leader.

But up to that time he will rather try to give Iran the impression of being a lame duck, unable to check Iran’s aggressiveness.

So let us see if Iran is moving into the trap.
