The G8's "Perfect Plan"

BS'D - With HaShem's Help

During the G8 (G: Gog U Magog Goyim) meeting, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States and Russia united and became allies.[+/-] show/hide text

Simultaneously, on the other side of the globe, the E8 (E: Esav) Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iran, Iraq and Egypt; implemented their plan to wipe Israel off the map by supplying state-of-the-art military weapons to their Arab brothers.

...Meanwhile, a war broke out between Israel against Gaza and Lebanon.

Before the G8 meeting, nations of the world told Israel to show restraint. After their firm union, all G8 nations had a change of direction and appear to give Israel tacit approval to cripple the enemy. They simultaneously all signaled that Israel has a free hand in attacking and declined to set limits on Israeli action.

America gives the impression of a very strong and powerful country. Even though HaShem striked at the USA's Twins, hit them with Katrina and Rita, they continue boasting about their strength. When they captured Iraq, their ego skyrocketed. All part of HaShem's plan...
אם תגביה כנשר ואם בין כוכבים שים קינך משם אורידך נאום ה' אם תגביה כנשר
It is as if Hashem is commanding them to have this haughty attitude. Hashem wants them to feel as high and mighty as possible, so that the fall and its impact will be that much greater. (Malbim)

The G8 continue with their "perfect plan" but do not know they are binded to HaShem's ultimate plan for the End of Days.

The G8's strategy is to allow the Jews to fight the E8 and eventually, the Jews' strength will deteriorate.
ואל תשמח לבני יהודה ביום אבדם
They shouldn't have been glad to see the downfall of the Jews. (Metzudat David)

The FINAL confrontation is drawing very near...

The power and strength of the IDF tremendously weakened. They no longer show off and boast as in the past "כוחי ועוצם ידי עשה לי את החיל הזה" - My strength and hands created this success. They are realizing that without HaShem, they are weak.

This week Olmert "set the stage" for the final showdown. Although we know the EMET (truth), he surprised all of us. He publicly praised HaShem in the Knesset (never before done by any Israeli Prime Minister) and performed a very big kiddush HaShem televised worldwide.

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan is hinting sending envoys to the "Middle East". They already have 150,000 US troops and 12,000 Britain troops in Israel's "backyard". Blair and Annan called for int'l force in Lebanon and Israel responded that "it's too soon". There's even rumor that Condi wants to go to Israel and Olmert told her to "back off".
השיאוך יכלו לך אנשי שלומך
It is the allies who will convince Edom to go to war. (Metzudat David)
והיה שארית יעקב בקרב עמים רבים
The "many nations" refers to Gog and the kings who will come with him to attack the Jewish people. (Radak, Metzudat David)

Meanwhile, the stage is set for Edom, leader of the G8...

The timing is perfectly aligned for the G8 to come to the Holy Land, with the pretense of friendship. Their plan are on "schedule"; their mission easily accessible - to take over Israel.

The G8 weaved "the perfect plan". They will arrive to the Holy Land, proud as a peacock with their chariots and horses אלו ברכב ואלו בסוסים ואנחנו בשם ה lying to the Jews, "we've come to help you".

By then, the IDF and Israeli citizens will be so weak from fighting, they will have no choice but turn to HaShem and beg our Merciful Father for help.
"אין לנו על מי להישען אלא על אבינו שבשמיים"
We have no one to lean on except our Father in Heaven

HaShem will remove the Midat HaDin (the attribute of judgment) from Am Israel and will forgive the Jews.
מי קל כמוך נושא עוון ועובר על פשע לשארית נחלתו
The prophet is praising HaShem for the good things he is promising the Jewish people. Michah states that there is no one like Hashem, Who forgives people's sins, although they, the remnants of the travails of the coming of the Mashiach, are undeserving of forgiveness. (Metzudat David)

And on that day, the G8 and E8's weave of the perfect plan will collapse....

כי קרוב יום ה' על כל הגויים
The nations will realize that the day of retribution has arrived. They will be punished for all that they did to the Jewish People. (Metzudat David)

וחתו גיבוריך
Esav's descendants would be brave warriors. But when the troubles come, all the brave warriors will quake and not be able to fight. (Radak)

כאשר עשית ייעשה לך גמולך ישוב בראשך
The nations will be punished not only for their actual actions, but also for the feelings of hatred that they exhibited while doing them. (Malbim)

למען ייכרת איש מהר עשו מקטל
The fear that will engulf the people of Edom will prevent them from thinking of ways to save themselves, from acting in self-defense, and so they will be killed by their enemies. (Malbim)

והיה בית יעקב אש ובית יוסף להבה ובית עשו לקש ודלקו בהם ואכלום
1. Just as straw burns quickly and completely, so the Jews will destroy Edom totally. (Metzudat David)
2. According to Chazal, Esav's fall will be through an encounter with Yosef Hatzaddik, or with one of his descendants. (Radak)
3. Esav will be defeated by Mashiach ben Yosef (Me'am Lo'ez)

And on that day....

הנה אנוכי שולח לכם את אליה הנביא לפני בוא יום ה' הגדול והנורא
והשיב לב אבות על בנים ולב בנים על אבותם
1. Eliyahu Hanavi dedicated his life to bringing the people of Israel back to Hashem. It is he who will be sent to awaken the people to return to Hashem. (Da’at Mikra)
2. Eliyahu Hanavi will resurrect the dead, and then all sons and fathers will stand together and tell each other the truth of the reward; then they will all, in wonder, repent and return to Hashem. (Metzudat David)
3. Eliyahu Hanavi will make everyone – fathers and sons – return to Hashem. (Metzudat David)
4. The entire world will do teshuva, so that the sons who have left the Torah of their fathers will return to it, and that way the hearts of the fathers and sons will be united. (Malbim)

ביום ההוא יהיה ה' אחד ושמו אחד
And on that day HaShem will be One and His name One




והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
