Russia under Vladimir Putin, a nominally Russian Orthodox country but with a large Muslim minority and hungry for power, oil, warm water ports and a resurgence of the old Soviet Empire, Iran under its real ruler Ayatollah Khamenei and the mullahs, (President Rouhani is only a puppet in their hands), the main Shiite Muslim power, the leading power in Iraq, Syria (in conjunction with Russia), Lebanon through its surrogate terrorist movement Hizbollah, Yemen through the Houthi rebels, also supporting Hamas, the Palestinian rebels in Gaza, and Turkey, the Sunni Muslim power under the dictator Erdogan, who wishes to resurrect the Ottoman Islamic Caliphate, along with an eventual reestablished Libya and Sudan, are definitely lining up to form that Ezekiel alliance that will invade Israel, but be defeated supernaturally by God.
The EU leaning Western nation of Ukraine, I donâ€™t think has much chance of getting the Crimea or its rebel Russian ethnic Eastern provinces back, and Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States are increasingly being left behind, and beginning to tacitly and secretively undertake limited contacts with Israel previously unthinkable, as they are very worried about this Russia - Iran -Turkey alliance in their region.
That's just how the world always worked, a constant bid for power. Go ask any African if they think China is slowly but surely colonizing them, most will nod in agreement. Anyone ever play the board game called "Risk"? This reminds me of that.
