Moving Towards Ezekiel 38-39

“Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:”
—Ezekiel 38:2-5

The Kremlin okayed the transfer of the S-300 air-defense missile system to Iran Monday, saying an embargo in place since 2010 was no longer necessary, given the pact with Tehran over its nuclear program.

The US said it was concerned by the sale and Israel, long fearful of the missile array’s effects on its air superiority, expressed alarm over the move, saying it was proof the nuclear agreement will result in an arms buildup and won’t make the region safer.

In a call to Israeli journalists, top US negotiator Wendy Sherman defended the nuclear deal, saying while Israel has the right to be concerned, there was no alternative. She added that the sides could reach a final agreement by June 30.

In Israel, a soldier was indicted for passing sensitive information to members of his settlement of Bat Ayin, tipping extremists off to an arrest raid, in a case the Shin Bet called “severe.”
