Sudan: Israel Is A ‘Legitimate Target’ Now, ‘We Have To Reply … We Know How To Retaliate’
Ezekiel 38:3-5a, “… This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army–your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia [Iran], Cush [Sudan] and Put [Libya] will be with them …”
By Gil Ronen, INN – “Sudan’s Information Minister, Ahmed Bilal Osman, has warned that his country would take ‘resolute steps’ against Israeli interests following the bombing of an ammunitions factory in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.
Osman told the BBC that his country now sees Israeli interests as legitimate targets for attack. He said that Sudan possesses proof that Israel is behind the attack on the Yarmouk weapons factory, and said that experts who combed the location of the blast sound evidence that Israeli arms were used to destroy it.
Australia’s ABC News quoted the minister as saying: ‘We have to reply because this is too much. This is the fourth time they have done this.’ Osman was referring to an incident in May, in which one person was killed after a car exploded in the eastern city of Port Sudan, as well as a similar blast last year that was blamed on an Israeli missile strike, and a fourth incident in eastern Sudan in 2009, when a convoy was bombed.
‘Definitely we are not going to attack Israel there,’ he added, ‘but we have the means, we have the means of how we can reply. They killed our people, these things are not cheap… and we know how to retaliate.’
Sudan has filed a complaint to the United Nations following the latest attack.” Source – INN.
Ethiopia And Sudan In Bible Prophecy – “The Hebrew word translated as Ethiopia is ‘Cush.’ Cush was the son of Ham and grandson of Noah. Many of Cush’s descendants settled in the region of southern Egypt, from Aswan to the place where the Nile River meets the Blue and White Nile rivers. The confusion comes from the historical name swap between Ethiopia and Abyssinia. The region the Bible refers to as Cush became known as Nubia, which the Greeks called Aithiopia. But today this region is southern Egypt and Northern Sudan. On the other hand, the ancient region of Abyssinia was much more southeast. This is where modern Ethiopia is now located. In others words, ancient Abyssinia is modern Ethiopia and ancient Aithiopia is modern-day North Sudan. Because of this confusion, many students of prophecy are awaiting the Christian majority nation of Ethiopia to join with the Islamic alliance described in Ezekiel 38 and 39. But a correct understanding of the name Cush points us to North Sudan, not Ethiopia.” Read more.
