Following Saad Hariri’s announcement this past weekend of resignation as Lebanon’s prime minister, the Israeli foreign ministry had sent a directive to all of the regime’s embassies to appeal to their host countries to oppose the involvement of Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon’s domestic politics. This is an understatement, because Iran and Hezbollah have de facto completed their seizure of total control in Lebanon. With Iran and Hezbollah also running the shots in Syria, Iran now in practice has an empire that stretches as far west as the Mediterranean.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia termed the missile attack from Yemen's Iran-supported Houthi rebels on Monday called the attempted missile attack on Riyadh’s main airport this weekend an "act of war" by Iran and vowed to retaliate. The missile traveled more than 500 miles before Saudi Arabia intercepted it. Meanwhile, tensions are soaring between Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran, who are opposed in disputes and conflicts across the Middle East, from Yemen and Syria to Qatar and Lebanon.
Also this past week, the dramatic developments in Saudi Arabia include an anti-corruption bust of some of Saudi Arabia's major kingpins. Not so coincidentally, Prince Mansour bin Muqrin, the deputy governor of Asir province together with several other high officials, were killed when their helicopter crashed near Abha late on Sunday. These are all moves of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (aka MBS) in cementing his power as heir to the Saudi throne. EmunaNews interprets this as removing the opposition from his cooperation with the USA and open alliance Israel, something that we all know is in the works but has been denied up until now. In a more recent development, Saudi Arabia now claims that Lebanon and Hezbollah have declared war against Saudi Arabia. So on a military level, Saudi Arabia is completing its alignment with Israel, something that was unthinkable several moths ago. Many commentators say that war between Iran and Saudi Arabia could erupt at any moment.
What does the USA-Saudi Arabia-Israel connection mean? It means that Geula is imminent. When? No one can know; but according to the Midrash, it's soon.
