THINGS ARE so convoluted in the Middle East that it’s almost impossible to figure out who is fighting who. The Sunnis and the Shias hate each other…mostly. The U.S. opposes Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen, but supports Iranian-backed militias in Iraq. ISIS apparently wants to kill everybody, including fellow Muslims, who are not part of ISIS.
Jim Fletcher, director of Prophecy Matters and host of the weekly radio program Israel Watch on the Rapture Ready Radio Network, joins us to discuss the tangled web of Middle Eastern geopolitics, including the nuclear deal with Iran, and how Israel figures into the whole thing.
The key thing to remember is that God is in control — and that the factions aligned against Israel have more to worry about in the long run than the Israelis.
