A former Putin speechwriter warns the Daily Express US that when he aligns with Iran and Hamas, Putin would view Israel as a “enemy”.As Hamas commits to release eight Russian hostages abducted during its October 7 attack in Israel, it calls Russia its “closest friend”Putin HAS been abandoning his neutrality on Israel and Palestine. He urged Israel to end its Gaza invasion this week.
Abbas Gallyamov, a Tel Aviv-based former Putin speechwriter from 2008–2012, told the Daily Express US that Putin has become increasingly dependent on Iran for weaponry, which is why he became pro-Palestine.“For many years, Putin was skillfully keeping a middle ground between Israel and Iran, but recently Russia became dependent on Tehran for arms deliveries.
His chance to play independently was lost. Iran probably stated, ‘We back you in Ukraine; you support us in the Middle East’.“Putin followed Tehran. Russia is gradually becoming another Iran proxy in the Middle East, like Hamas and Hezbollah.
Due to his criticism of the Ukraine incursion, Russia placed Mr. Gallyamov on a wanted list earlier this year.When asked if Russia might give Hamas money and weapons, Gallyamov responded yes. Not ruling it out. When you become a proxy, you lose your independence.”
He added, “I think Putin no longer cares for Netanyahu. Since Putin is pro-Palestine, any Israeli government is his enemy.Russia received drones from Iran for its Ukraine war after harsh sanctions isolated it.Putin and Netanyahu have worked to improve their ties in recent years. Putin and Netanyahu pushed for visa-free travel and cultural exchange.
Watchman: Putin Sees Israel as an Eventual Enemy, Breaking With Netanyahu World players are unaware of how things would unfold. Biblical Rev. 16:16
A name occurring only once in the Bible and designating the place where the last great battle of the ages will take place ( Rev 16:16 ). It will coincide with the second coming of Christ ( Rev 16:15 ) and there all of the hosts of evil will be defeated ( Rev 19:11-21 ).
Armageddon is a Hebrew word, although it does not occur in the Old Testament. Its meaning is not exactly clear, but it is best taken to mean Mount Megiddo, since "Har" in Hebrew means mountain and "Mageddon" is the place-name of Megiddo.
In Old Testament history Megiddo was a place of numerous decisive battles because of the broad plain that stood before it. Deborah and Barak defeated Sisera and his Canaanite army there (Judges 4-5), Gideon drove off the Midianites and Amalekites ( Judges 6 ), Saul and the army of Israel were defeated because of their failure to trust in God ( 1 Sam 31 ), and the Egyptian army under Pharaoh Neco killed Josiah, king of Judah ( 2 Kings 23:29 ). Although these decisive battles were fought before Megiddo, the place-name never became fixed in Jewish tradition as designating the place of decisive battle. However, given the fact that it was such a place, it is natural that John should use it to locate the final great battle on earth.
Some interpreters take John's designation literally, expecting the armies of the earth to gather against God in the endtimes below the remains of Old Testament Megiddo; others see in it a more figurative element. They point out that Megiddo was not really a mountain at all and that the battle will take place in the plain. Perhaps John designated it Mount Megiddo as a clue to its symbolic meaning, drawing together the historic place of conflict in Israel's history with the prophecies of Ezekiel that speak of the great eschatological conflict taking place in the mountains of Israel ( Ezekiel 39:2 Ezekiel 39:4 Ezekiel 39:17 ).
In any case, John sees the final triumph of God at Armageddon and offers that to the persecuted Christians as a word of comfort and hope that evil will not win, but is doomed to ultimate destruction.
