O Lord, the clouds are gathering
The fire of judgement burns
How we have fallen
O Lord, you stand appalled to see
Your laws of love so scorned
And lives so broken
A fine hymn by Graham Kendrick. One to sing right now. Obviously prompted by the title of this upsetter of a news article 'War Clouds Gathering Over Israel' and ever more edging-talk to war.
Lebanese leader of Hezbollah speaks direct to Israel-based peoples and declares, or maybe discloses, imminent plans to do... what, exactly? My sifting commentators, up to now knowledge, leaves me uncertain about.
And quite the hateful concluding expectation and call from the writer of this piece, yet understandable, and no faith in God (in Christ).
What is agreeable sense, are along the lines that Israeli Govt. policy is dangerously inflammatory and can't help suspect, self-state-destructive. This countered with Zionist claims and -- has to be the case.
The only possible other; Regional held, to some degree of less than full-escalation order by Global/ist blocks. Or, if this not so-united up on the top floor; Russia.
Who are the real Islamic or Israel-running believers' believing on? Involves their respective writings from God telling them the outcome. Two books, two different answers. Both sides maintaining, glory or death? Or from their specific perspective; Glory and death to.
Or, could be argued, perhaps not so religiously zeal-led, and it's base bravado in a hateful revenge, greed and power moguls? Tactical. Fight or face premature death or perhaps imprisonment etc.
The God said it/I believe it -- again though/who knows -- zeal of the Christian Zionist lobby cheering on Israel, believe Jesus returns and Jerusalem remains for him to stand... feet on the rock. This after/half-time/pre and seven years and 'they' are whisked away. Returning with, or going when, He returns.
(Incidentally, the only bit I know I know is the last two words of that paragraph. And not a fatalist, so not, for this reason alone... -- like to know the correct term? -- a Calvinist Christian Zionist.)
Don't have a naive backlash reaction to 'Iran can do nothing good' and Hezbollah are. Acknowledge they served what appears an indisputable need to keep Syria as a state afloat. Hear mixed things about inside-Iran. So yes, one more truthscoop and don't know where I'm going with this or smart-up enough, to say much.
Tend to read this and give Israel as much room for any of their beleaguered and therefore battling talk. Do accept they have social freedoms, typified in their attitude to gays. That matters. Get 'Islam and peace' is about as controversial as... Zionism and...
Clearly Christian Zionists have very little to say that's bright and sensible about global politics. Not only are they insistent on keeping their eyes wide closed about the levels of persecution on 'Palestinians' and land-grabbing but are ASLEEP or certainly neutered.
The A. term refers to those who pretend-so about politics and history. Ones prepared to look away. Awake C.Zionists, manage to sublimate their talking out with adventures into entity-spotting. Trying to find esoteric clues and evidence that somehow backs up their novel theology.
To escape the middle-east squabbling they get into Antarctica, giants and super-soldiers.
It's never prayer first and last, so leave or at least relegate, their meticulous mapping of demonology. But then 'pray for what' they might stumble with?
Altough Christian Zionism made its 80's headway into mainstream evangelicalism with one mandate; Pray for Israel, out of respect for a rediscovered recognition of Jewish roots.
These days it's bash Muslims in their western midst and proclaim they're 'taking over the planet'. With this comes never-wrong Israeli politicians. Mossad, ever their protector, and no, no... never, the aggressors and clandestine mobsters.
Here me boring me and repeating me talk. One thing? We need moderate peace, a stave off and reprieve from mass suffering through war. Enough already.
My one thing: Lament.

'War Clouds Gathering Over Israel' on Darkmoon.
By Taxi. Sourced from Plato’s Guns.
A most significant event took place on October 1st, 2017.
Hassan Nasrallah, the Lebanese leader of Hezbollah, gave a speech that, as per usual, dissected current regional hotspots with much passion, insight and frankness.
But what was unusual about this particular speech is that Nasrallah addressed Israeli citizens directly, earnestly advising them publicly and for the first time EVER, to start packing their suitcases and to return to their true motherlands in Europe, the US and elsewhere, as soon as possible and before imminent war breaks out. “You will not have time to pack and leave when war begins; and nowhere will be safe for you in Historic Palestine – nowhere!”, he asserted with gusto.
He also clarified to the Jews of Israel that Hezbollah’s conflict is with Zionism and not Judaism; and that they, as Jews who were brought to Palestine from the four corners of the world, were brought to be cynically used by Zionist leaders, not to be saved.
